As we move forward with what has been an interesting year to say the least, I would like to explain the abrupt disappearance of KB Radio and myself. However I really shouldn’t go into all the details, but I will say this, it was shut down on the advisement of law enforcement with regards to some harassment and threats against me and the station.
While it has been frustrating dealing with all of this, it also has given me time to spend with my family who are still dealing with issues and also to reflect on what had become of KB Radio in a very short period of time. I will say this I have no regrets in any way, but I have decided I will do some things differently as I start to go forward again.
One of the things I did when I switched from podcasts to 24 hour streaming was tried to be more professional and I think I lost some of the edge that made what I was doing work. There will be some subtle changes in the way I handle things on air, that hopefully listeners will find entertaining.
I also tried to be too many things for too many people, and in doing so I think lost a certain focus. As I make some more announcements you will see how things are becoming more streamlined, and much more focused. Indie artists I hope will be enthusiastic about the announcements as I have spent many hours working over the last couple months to figure out the best way to make this work.
The other problem is the people who are users. This isn’t just with me or KB Radio, its society as a whole, but on too many occasions I turned the other cheek for artists who intentionally screwed me and continued to air their music. I have decided I don’t need that stress. I am not talking about anyone kissing my ass, I am talking about everyone being themselves, and the assholes will weed themselves out and find they aren’t welcome on the KB Family of Stations.
To give you a small hint, it will likely be January 1, 2019 before I start doing live shows again, though I have been tempted to do one from time to time before than. At that time, there will also be 4 stations streaming in the family. The KB Family will be giving the best airplay and representation for indie artists across all genres. There will be new live shows, some returning favorites, and hopefully in time the addition of other DJ’s onto the scene as well.
So watch this blog for more information about the 4 stations coming your way. They will be going live before January 1st to do some testing, so stay tuned.
