JJ IS TAKING SOME TIME OFF…
As many of you may know, In January, Jeri started covering the Artist Spotlight segments on Red Dirt Roots Radio. Eventually Jimmy E. had a change of plans and had to move on from the radio station. Jeri James was offered a great opportunity as the new owner/operator of the project.
Gladly accepting, with good pleasure of a job she knew she truly loved; she has been running RDRR since around the 1st of March. Learning the software programming ; tools and hands on training; has been a day and night commitment. Listenership rose by more than a thousand since the Morning Cup and Friday Why Not Shows were implemented along with Artist Spotlight 5 days a week. Not to mention A. Alico , Author out of Queen’s New York had gotten behind the work with 2 months of sponsorship in which Licensing for the station was afforded. Red Dirts can no longer be considered “hobbyist” with numbers rising. This is all good news.
With a family of her own however; and the number of responsibilities in that alone, Jeri had a few pressing and recent needs that have been called to her attention. She will take a few days break from the station in order to tend to those matters.
All regular scheduled shows such as Artist Spotlight, Mack Minutes, Morning Cup and Friday Why Not Show will not be broadcasting this week. Thank you for your patience as Red Dirt Roots Radio is indeed a very new development; it is Jeri’s utmost desire to not only grow the station but eventually grow the support team; Besides recorded broadcasts, she is working solo to keep the station in full swing. Be prepared for revisions and a few changes stripping down to the raw organics of music no less.
Support is appreciated ~! Thank You for keeping these Red Dirt Musicians spinning!!!
