Attitude of Gratitude; Time Shared with Steven Stone

Show #149


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!

Show #141

 


This show is the last live show until September 20th. We are replaying a previous show on both September 6th (my birthday) and September 13th.

This program with Gina Amato and Jessie Gwilt (my daughter) covered a variety of subjects, like I’m prone to do, but focused on college age children living with parents after the college experience is done.  Zoe, Gina’s daughter who did two shows with her Mom on Radio 4 the Ages, called in to give us an update on her new job and independent living.

I started the show today with some reflections on turning the page on my 65th birthday. Then we move on to a discussion of  young people graduating college, moving back home, living independently, getting a job, and starting the sometimes long and arduous task of ‘working for the Man’.  Jessie reflected on her four years of college living away from home, and the maturation experience. She also shared with us her thoughts on beginning her working career. How much does the influence of good parenting in the early years impact the decision making of college age children when they are out from under the the watchful eyes of their parents. 

I’m very proud of my daughter Jessie for many, many reasons. Jessie displayed a self confidence and maturity on today’s show as she expressed her thoughts on growing up in a single parent home and the importance of open communication between parents and children.

Many thanks to my daughter Jessie and my good friend Jessie for sharing their time with me this morning!
