An auspicious way to begin the second half of our first year: By rolling out our newest addition. New media journalist and local resident Daylina Miller will be bringing us a story every two to three weeks. I am very excited about this (although, I AM checking my grammar and spelling more carefully, tonight). It was never my intent to be the only voice at So Local Pasco. I have been hoping to attract someone to share their perspective with our listeners and readers. When I asked one of my advisors how to do that, he said “Wait until someone good approaches you, and stays persistent.” That is pretty much exactly what happened.
I met Daylina shortly after Christmas, and we kept running in to each other at local events…Mostly, I saw her in the context of her fine photographic work. Then I learned that she was a broadcast journalist…And that led to a conversation about collaboration. Then another about ethics and philosophy.
And so, here we are. I have given Daylina complete freedom to select and report on things that catch HER interest, and she has some very good ideas for where to start. Her style is much more narrative than mine, and I am excited about that. You may not know it, but the interview segments make my work much easier…Especially when people passionate about their topic are on the show. What Day does is far more involved…And important.
I had not intended for my interview with Daylina to be so long…But, she is an interesting woman. We kept thinking of things we thought you’d want to know. Which is sort of the whole idea, here. She was a joy to interview. Maybe next week, I’ll have her interview me?
Daylina, welcome on board. There’s coffee in the tin, and a spare laptop on the counter. Frankly, I hired you for your Pasco contacts rolodex!
Hey, a quick shout out to the amazing kids and faculty in the Mitchell High School Theater and Music departments…I got out today with my mom to see their production of “Anything Goes”, and it was fantastic. Best high school production I’ve ever seen.
Our little ‘Spare Room‘ is getting to be quite busy. Producing two podcasts, (So Local Pasco and the Baboon Room) plus all the interview and advertising meetings. We thought it was time for its own website and logo. Website will be rolled out in the next couple of weeks.
I was knocked out by the logo Anthony Thompson did for me! He knew I wanted something iconic Pasco, and relevant to audio recording, and came up with a fantastic original interpretation of the stilt houses off of our coast. SO LOCAL PASCO, indeed!
Thanks, folks…Now let’s do that 180 more times!
