So this morning I found myself flying solo again, at least for half of the two hour time slot. I’m always grateful when I have an interesting guest join me in studio or call in to share their insights on life and successful aging. However, there are times, especially during the summer months (aka vacation time), and throughout the Christmas holiday season when it is more challenging to secure a guest who has the time to share a mic with me. I enjoy doing shows alone, although with my ‘board op’ just an arm’s length away, I’m never lonely. Gratitude is such a vital aspect to successful living; and if you’re living, you are aging.
Steven Stone, the Operations Manager at OTS Media (WRHI) joined me for a good portion of this edition. Steven is a veteran radio personality, with immense talent and a total understanding of what constitutes good radio. Steven and I waxed on a variety of topics, and I always enjoy the time that he and I share on Radio 4 the Ages; and I hope that you do too!
Gina Amato and her daughter Zoe join me in studio for the first ever back to back shows with the same topic that’s ever been done on Radio 4 the Ages!
Adult children moving back in with Mom or Dad after college is the main thrust of this conversation. There’s enough statistical data for you to chew on, and as in the first part last week, plenty of laughs as we explore the challenges and blessings of this oft times necessary living arrangement.
My youngest son Collin joins us as well, and he accounted for himself fairly well for a 15 year old male; at least during the first hour of the show. After that, I think the late hour that he was ‘forced’ to keep the night before in serious phone conversation with his young lady friend brought on a bit of nap time.
Gina Amato and daughter Zoe Irizarry join me this day to do what turned out to be part one of a two part venture into a fun and most entertaining show on the topic of adult children moving back into their parent’s home. Gina is the Western Territory Disaster Program Manager for the American Red Cross in the upper Palmetto Region.
This venture turned out to be a radio version of a few television shows: Dr. Phil, Maury Povich, Jerry Springer, albeit a milder version of that one. Gina and Zoe are both full of life, joy and a willingness to share with the audience. We touched on some of the joys, challenges and irritants of life when a recent college graduate moves back into her childhood home to reside with her Mom after four years out of the nest.
I’m sure that you will enjoy this program with Gina and Zoe. But there is a warning! If you are averse to laughter, do not listen to this edition of Radio 4 the Ages!
Part Two is to be heard on February 22nd!
