If music be the food of love, what’s the food of music?
On almost any given day, if you were to stop by WBJC’s studios, you’d hear someone mention food. The staff at this radio station loves to natter on about all things culinary – favorite cookbooks, silly food trends, amazing (or dreadful) restaurants we’ve recently tried – if you can eat it or drink it, we’ve […]
Allegro or al dente?
If pressed to declare which I love more – carbs or classical music – I might have to go with the option that’s often served alla puttanesca, but it would be a close call. As such, I found the following Classic FM quiz absolutely delicious! My score was 18 out of 21; please post yours […]
Top 5 – Halloween Candy
I’ll fully admit it: Halloween is my favorite holiday! To me, it’s the culmination of Fall… the leaves have changed, the air is crisp and the costume is on! My mother used to sew my costumes from scratch and my fave for several years in a row was the devil costume complete with my face […]
Choose your poison
You wouldn’t know this to listen to 91.5 FM (or maybe you would!), but WBJC staffers are inveterate coffee drinkers. The studios are redolent with mouthwatering smells. For myself, I drink copious cups of tea during my air shift (I joke with my colleagues that in truth I’m just one giant teabag), and today I […]
Last week, my wife and I watched a PBS documentary on the Amish, and it brought back memories of our trip last summer to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Our journey was for genealogy research, since I have discovered in the past two years that I had ancestors who came to Lancaster and adjacent Cumberland Counties in the early […]
Does popularity breed contempt?
Jim & I actually watched the Oscars this past Sunday – a first for us, & we’ve been together since 2001. We don’t usually tune in to awards shows because they are so long & commercial-packed; if I want to see fashion pics from such events, there are plenty of websites that will help me […]
Let’s not do lunch
Every job has its quirks. One that comes with being on the air is that as per the FCC, leaving the building during one’s show for any reason short of a fire or other disaster is not an option if yours is the name signed on the control room log. Since I work right through […]
What a weekend!
As you are probably aware, WBJC had its Winter On-Air Fund Drive last weekend. Our listeners were as generous as ever & we actually exceeded our projected financial goal for the drive, so we’re a tired, yet happy bunch this morning. Big thanks to everyone who called in a pledge – you keep the music […]
Getting away to it all
I’m not one to sit around on vacation. I love my job, but it does entail spending most of my workday in a small room with a bunch of electronics, & I’m a pretty sociable person, & not very sedentary, so when I leave town for a few days, I need to be somewhere with […]
Three more nights of “girl food!”
The staff at WBJC loves food, so we talk about cooking, eating, restaurants, etc. quite a bit. We also debate the merits of various culinary trends, share recipes, & joke about our dietary eccentricities. Jim is currently in rehearsal for Opera ACCC’s “Naughty Marietta”, which opens this Friday. I miss having him around in the […]
