Yesterday was my favorite kind of radio day. As the hurricane moved in, people called KTSA and told everyone about their individual situations. It was do-it-yourself news on Talk radio. Of, by and for the people who own the radio airwaves: you.
During my program noon 'til two, KTSA listeners shared many important pieces of information. Semi tractor-trailers blown off a highway, impressive wind and rain reports, personal stories, a big tree limb on a favorite pickup truck, a house wall gone all broadcast as everything was happening.
That kind of sharing of the airwaves, by all of us, is one of the aspects of radio that I have always respected. It's called "public service" and it is important to me.
I sincerely thank everyone who helped by sharing your own Claudette experiences. You helped make a fine day in radio.
