I guess that’s the epitome of being a professional? Or it’s the product of having it done many times before hand, and it’s the ‘numb factor!’ Being in radio, they say, ‘if you haven’t been fired 5 times, you really HAVEN’T been in radio.’ It’s still so difficult to not take it personally, even if it’s a simple format flip, economic saving, or downsizing. We as artists, still hurt when it happens. We all have ‘value.’ It’s awful when our value is abused.
Some of us were just meant to talk to others, and spread the word eliquently through the airwaves, knowing just how far to push an envelope is an art! Yet, it’s being taken away, and we wind up not knowing who to talk to any more…. sometimes, we wind up not talking at all, any more. It’s a sad state of affairs.
