Hudson Thompson – Same ole, same ole

It is week six here at The Bull in West Point. This week was actually fairly slow, I am definitely getting better on being live on the mic (I was there early in the morning again this week on Tuesday and Thursday to be with Smoot on his morning show), more relaxed, but also still having to be wary of what I say. It is interesting to me all the things that you are apparently not supposed to say on the radio, but are still said on the radio …it makes for interesting conversations, to say the least! Today, I assisted both Gator and Dr. Dave with making commercials.


This is Gator, we were working on a commercial for a local grocery store

I am getting pretty slick with commercials, I am thinking after next week I will be able to make them on my own.  Steve Wheeler, station manager, wants me to finish converting music for the sister AM station before I get on making my own commercials. I am very close to being done with the bulk of the converting, and I am thinking after  some point next week (Tuesday or Thursday) I will be done with them for sure! So, I am excited to see what the next few weeks have in store for me, because making commercials is so much fun! I have found the production aspect of radio is what I have really enjoyed of late, and maybe later in life I can get into that portion of radio, or something related. We shall see!!
