Interesting People in Your Local Community

Did you know that there are Interesting People living in Your local community?  Have you stopped and listened to the life stories of those who live next to you?  Often we are so busy we don't take the time to stop, listen and be encouraged by people around us.  The life stories of ordinary people often tell of extraordinary situations and events they have been through.

If we are so busy being busy, or always talking, we aren't going to hear these amazing life stories.  So what can we do? 
  • take the time to smile and say hello
  • get to know them - build a friendship
  • listen to their story
  • if you're in community radio - they may like to share a positive life experience with others
Community radio is not just about broadcasting.  It's also about people connecting to people.  Often we only think about presenters, announcers, and interviewers.  But there is so much more involved.  Have you considered:
  • Researchers
  • Programmers
  • Administrators
  • Promoters
  • Event planners
  • Maintenance Personnel
These are only a few.  Your local community radio station may be looking for someone just like YOU!  So go and introduce yourself.  Get involved.  There are always lots of little "jobs" to be done.  You may just find a new career or better still a NEW Friend!
