HEY! Where’s my parade?
When I initially started this podcast journey it was supposed to be this glorious achievement. People were supposed to recognize me in the street and the fanfare that would take place could only be rivaled by winning against the Empire in a Star Wars film. But here we are, episode 5 and I can still buy a gallon of milk at the grocery store without being swarmed for autographs.
In 10 years I want to look back at this time and say I spent it doing what I loved doing. Playing music period.
But who needs a parade when you have folks asking for music on a regular basis? I love getting the emails or the requests for the show. That’s better than any parade could offer. So I’m gonna celebrate like I have my own parade. But what’s next? What’s the future have in store?
So with 5 episodes down and hundreds more in my brain, I’m thinking of what the future looks like. Like what will the next 10 years of my life as a music purveyor (yeah that’s a fancy title for DJ) look like. I want to still be doing this podcast and maybe another set of mixes maybe. A club appearance or two would be nice as well. Spinning at a local spot we all love to hang and eat at in Downtown Hartford a few years ago was fun. I got to play house music and everyone had a great time.
But what will it look like. I’m hoping something fantastic. In 10 years I want to look back at this time and say I spent it doing what I loved doing. Playing music period. I want to still be spinning hot ass house music and infusing it with my own personal style into it. But none of us can predict what will happen next. So I’ll keep it spinning and see how it all goes. I’ll enjoy every single minute of this.
So enjoy episode 5, play this super loud, stay dangerous and salute!!
