The timing for the previous year in review is probably past in some ways, and I had written a blog about the past year a couple weeks ago, but as a writer I have those moments where I just don’t like everything I wrote. I have sat on that one for a couple weeks, thinking from time to time about how to tweak it and I could publish it, but decided in the end it was easier to start over.
The past year was one of significant gains all the way around for me and the stations. From a personal perspective entering in to what has become an amazing situation living with someone very special and eventually realizing i want to be with them forever. That relationship helped to grow the Brand KB Radio and the KB Family of Stations beyond anything I could have anticipated on January 1st 2019 when I officially relaunched the live shows on KB Radio, updated KB Country and add the other two stations.
KB Indie & KB AOR
We have seen friends go away and new ones develop and still the music is the main focus. I set high standards for how I want things operated, and try to live up to that every day. We upset people along the way who think because I have a radio station or 4, I should play every single song that comes in to us. But I think we have shown consistently our plan, the business model I have developed and based on the growth I assume it is working still.
With 4 full years now under my belt, I also believe we have shown we are here for the long haul and are not going anywhere. We continue to grow with other shows and programs looking to air on our stations, and us offering our programming to others as well. The Indie Music scene has grown into an incredible voice around the world and while we don’t and can’t play every song that comes to us, more than 1000 per month on average, the music we do play we do our best to offer our best in promoting those songs through our stations playlists and more.
I have lived my life with no regrets, because where I am now as I say, I am extremely happy. You can’t get there without problems, and things just happening in life, in business, in friendships and relationships. But its how we take those events and use what we learn. So as I sit and write this, being as happy in so many aspects right now, how can I regret anything. Without all those past events I wouldn’t have gotten to this exact point in my life. Can I do better, personally and business wise with the stations? I am sure that I can and will strive to do so. We start 2020 with some goals and opportunities that should make it a very exciting year. We hope you come along for the ride, but if for whatever reason you can’t, that’s okay too. We all have our own lives and hopes and dreams.
Cheers and thank you to everyone who was a part of the past amazing year.
