Future Talk Show Hosts and Programming

Banging your head up against the wall?

Not sure whom you’re going to bring on to interview or even speak about?

Yes, it’s daunting. People actually do this daily? Weekly? Monthly? Hourly? How?

Well, you have a plan, an agenda before you set up and take the plunge.

The plunge? What plunge? How hard can it be?

To Start

I’ve seen grown men and women pull their hair out strand by strand. I’ve seen these same people bang their heads against the wall. Hire professional mourners and criers to keen into the wind because after the first burst of rush (enthusiasm), they’ve lost their way and can’t keep up the good work.

Good work? Yes, good work. Other people (future talk show hosts) plan their programming out for at least one if not two years in advance. They usually have a list of people they want to interview, want to discuss topics with, want to give a good show to their listeners. Before they even pick up the phone, these talk show hosts plan their shows in advance. These people have a pretty good idea of who their audience is or who their ideal audience is going be. They then start asking these people what they would like to hear over the air waves.

Some people use surveys to get these necessary answers answered. Other people email their list, friends, peer group and ask them what they would like to hear. Better yet allot of these people go and listen to what is already on the air and listen in to the programming. These hosts also listen to what isn’t being said or being shared and start writing down what they feel their ideal listening audience might want to hear.

The List

Once these future hosts have written down their lists, then they go and find out what key words or key phrases that are being used to draw in the traffic. Despite Hollywood, building something doesn’t mean that they will come. In fact, I can guarantee you that if you don’t advertise, word-of-mouth, use social media, or other ways of bringing in traffic, no one will come.

Listeners need a reason to come in and listen. You, the host must provide something different — something stimulating that’s going to bite these folks on the butt and compel them to stick around and hear what you, your experts, your speakers, your interviewees will say to get them to stay put for more than 4 seconds.

Once you have the list, then you must decide in which direction, in which format you’re going to present your show so that your listeners will come back again and again when a certain program runs.

Sample

Let me give you an example. When I first put up my station Passionate World Radio Network LLC up on the air waves, we started out with a listening audience of zero, zip, nadda, nothing, goose egg. However, you want to say it or write it, it was the big O. I wasn’t going to let that continue to happen. So, I decided what types of hosts I wanted to go after. At that time, conversing with animals was getting big, an animal whisperer was interviewed on my station. She never left. She’s still here with me. Her program, What the Animals Tell Me is a big drawer. Another host came on board when she was interviewed about Alzheimer’s. Her mother had Alzheimer’s and she wanted to share the information that she’s collected for the last several years. This lady started her program last fall. It also is a strong drawer.

What would I consider a strong drawer?

Any program that’s retweeted. Any program that our listeners remain listening to for more than 5 minutes. Any percentage over 33% that keeps the audience glued to the audio.

Guess what all of PWRN’s programs work that way.

Lessons

One of the many lessons that a future talk show host should realize is that you don’t have to be rich, famous, or celebrity for your program to bring in a huge drawer. It only takes a good niche. An interesting topic that will lure the listener in and keep them listening for more than 10, 15, 25, 30 or 60 minutes.

More to come.

AstroFlash with Flash Silvermoon

Where Passion Meets Reality!

Where Passion Meets Reality!

AstroWelcome to the period ofcleansing and purification! Are we having fun yet? Not exactly fun that’s for sure but time to clean out all the closets and inner recesses of the mind body and spirit. The  Eclipses that started last month have clearly shaken a lot loose not unlike the recent storm Hermine that has shaken so many small limbs from the trees in my yard, Like a fine cocktail life has been shaken and stirred and as many of you may be feeling, we are still being stirred in some whirlwind of change. I apologize for the lateness of this column as the astrological aspects of these days has been really kicking my butt.

I can feel this within my own life and all of the clients who have been calling for readings seem to be wanting to make extreme changes in their lives or at least are on the horns of the dilemma as to how, what ,where and why to make said changes. Many are seeking geographic cures and do literally need that while others must reflect on the interior changes that will need to shift no matter where they are located.

The Solar Eclipse on the Virgo New Moon on September 1 kicked the month off with a real zest and burst of Solar Fire however the frustrating and stagnating effect of the Mars/Saturn conjunction kept most of us pretty grounded especially because that configuration also squared Neptune and was exact for Saturn and Neptune’s square. Not only did we experience the frustration of Mars wanting to get moving but the impulse was also held under water by Neptune. The exact Saturn Neptune square on November 10 has really heightened these challenges and has made it harder to even know what to believe,what is true? So many planets in Virgo too North Node,Mercury,Sun and til later in the month Jupiter. This very mental energy is what is making movement even more challenging as Mercury, the ruling planet of Virgo is retrograde.

Hurricane Hermine’s birth and passage through Florida was a metaphorical illustration of many of these energies.It seemed to take a really long time to make its eye and claim its direction and then it got much stronger.The rain and the tidal surges were the most damaging effects which fits with a very Neptunian storm. Nothing more frustrating than waiting for the electric to come back on during a 90+ degree day and yet with Venus moving into Libra the spirit of love and friendship moved many to support each other and bring aid to place that were the hardest hit. Let me not glamorize this scene too much though as HARRP could very well be at work on a storm that has had such an erratic and then intense formation and is still blowing up the East Coast! There is that potential too of deception which is also a Neptunian quality. Again that question, what is true? Mars and Saturn are both in the sign of Sagittarius which demands to know the truth, so you can see how difficult it is to purify appropriately and know what needs to go or stay and be as honest with ourselves as we can be.

Eclipses always have a way of turning energies upside down and inside out and we have been in Eclipse season since the middle of August and will be til September.16 This is indeed a major time of transformation, a time of major adjustment.
 

I know that I have said this before but under these circumstances where many are wrestling with disasters I am reminded of the words spoken by Hugh Romney of the Hog Farmers at Woodstock. “Hey this must be heaven cause there is always a little bit of heaven at a disaster area!” and he was and is right. Everyday people just step up and forget about the “ism brothers” as Flo Kennedy would call them, and jump in and lend a hand.Never mind the politrix of who is voting for what and what color is your skin, if there is a tree stretched across your car or home, you will see folks bringing a chain saw to help.

This is in stark contrast to other events that are happening in the world where all matter of violence manifests daily to refugees as well as the First people of our own country trying to keep frackers from raping their land and all of the earth’s water. Amazing how an ongoing demonstration of thousands of Native Americans of many tribes and people of all colors are gathering together and there is no mainstream coverage, NONE! This is the largest Native American demonstration in history and many more are coming. Today finally there is a restraining order on the Army Corp. May this stay in place! Thank you Obama for stepping up today and hopefully this won’t just be talk. It hurts my heart that the European establishment of this country continues to play fast and loose with treaties and sacred lands of the First Nations that there is still such inequities for people of color and then there are the causes of women,children and animals.

I don’t want to just add to the appalling negativity floating around as that is not my way. If anything I know and see my job as one who lifts the vibration and yet these are harder times to manifest this levitation game. This time is not for the faint hearted and we each need to find and use all of our best tools to heal and be healed of old trauma that has lingered and regressive thoughts that get in the way of our forward movement. After all it is Mercury Retrograde in Virgo and we can cause ourselves more hassles with cyclical thought processes that tend to take us nowhere. Action is challenging at best but if we can at least freeze these spinning thoughts we will be way ahead of the game. As I said before this is a time of purification and Mercury in Virgo surely seeks to purify on all levels and this can be quite rewarding as long as we don;t lean too heavily into perfectionism.

Oh happy day, Jupiter has moved into Libra! This is some very good news as it does offer some light at the end of this misty tunnel. This may account for a temporary cease -fire in Syria,Obama supporting Planned Parenthood and the halting the North Dakota Pipeline. I add the word temporary and this is key. Hopefully all these objectives will remain in place after Mercury goes direct but you know how politrix can be when they think we have rested our resistance. Through this time it is critically important that we keep our Third Eyes wide open and trust our guts for the  real story every time. All that being said, I do believe that this shift will be a blessing and lift us out of some of the funk.

On September 11, that day of infamy, Venus will square Pluto so be careful and conscious with all relationships especially those of the heart as this aspect can really awaken power struggles so please for everyone’s sake don’t allow yourself to be pulled into that mess. If you feel it coming dodge the bullet and go home. That is one of the good uses of astrology. We don’t need to fall into every possible hole just because it is there. On the positive this could be a most passionate time if handled well.

The Full Moon in Pisces Lunar Eclipse will occur on September 16 and will finish off this Eclipse season and will likely be the most intense and profound of the whole group at 24 Pisces. There is quite the bundle of energies all converging on this day as Chiron conjoins the Full Moon which as always opposes the Sun and at this time is also squared by Mars.

The softer lunar energies are confronting the harsher energies of Mars, the more warlike  planet which is likely to incite some of the more aggressive energies that have been held in check by Saturn and Neptune. This is a great time for letting off a lot of steam. By using the more physical expressions of Mars this will be a good time to release some of the pent up emotions that have been pooling inside. Chiron tends to tell us where the old pain lives but this is a moon that will support our recovery from Patriarchal conditioning. Out out damn shame and misogyny! We can find ourselves delivered from regressive thoughts and behaviors that have been stirred up over the summer. Also there is nothing like a Full Moon in Pisces to bring out the psychic vibes ,dreams and just plain MAGIC! Nothing plain about magic of course but we will all be feeling more tuned in. If you need to go more deeply into some mystery that has been eluding you now is the time for the answers to manifest.

Venus opposing Uranus will see women leading the charge as can often be the case since we have the least to gain from the “good old days” of the patriarchal paradigm.Venus also reminds us to work with and through the heart as a major force for healing. Both the Moon and Venus will bring us to a greater resonance with our emotions which can be a good balance with all of the mental energies since the beginning of the month.

Just in time for the Fall Equinox Mercury will come out of retrograde as will Pluto on the 26th.Forward motion can be quite exhilarating but one must also remember that issues that have been held back or postponed may also show us a different picture than the one we had visioned. Hopefully the positive gains made will hold together and the destructive elements will be transformed as the month comes to an end

Fall Equinox will occur on September 22 and marks the time of equal day and night. Such a fine time to put it all together as the Sun begins its journey through the sign of Libra. Might this Venus ruled sign bring us more peace or will her need to be fair and egalitarian move us further into conflict? We shall see.

As I have been writing this piece I have felt an extreme downloading of psychic and electromagnetic energy and I think that this is part of the benefit of this extreme time of  purification and dramatic shifts from this season of Eclipses. As we step further into the light what will be illuminated. Is this the month that we begin in earnest to Save the Planet and feel the inter connection of all life? I sure hope so and may we start by being kinder in every way and reaching out from the heart. Blessed Be Flash Silvermoon

LET’S GET PERSONAL

ARIES – I don’t always play fair but sometimes I just want to play. Haven’t had anywhere near enough of that this summer and thank Goddess Uranus is still in my sign which means there is hope for surprises especially when I dare to truly be myself.

TAURUS – I am looking for a smooth groove and more subtle moves. Music and art to warm my heart and let my spirit sing loud and long. Yeah that feels right got to lift out of the summer funk.

GEMINI – Ain’t no two ways to it, I am tired of the gossip and back biting that I have been privy to. It’s enough to keep me off social networks for good. I do like a good conversation so I guess I can’t take that too far but I will think before I post and take a breadth before I get pissed off.

CANCER – These eclipses have me absolutely moony. I feel everything to the nth degree and that can just really be rough especially with so much loss and hardship in the world. I know I incarnated to be here now but damn what was I thinking!Yeah I know I can help nurture the world and ease the suffering just can’t always be caught up in all that.

LEO – Just passed my big time so I still have some light to share. Feeling rather magnanimous and I do want to bring my very best out into the world. I feel like I have been truly blessed and it just might be time for me to give back some.

VIRGO – Oh my so many planets in my sign but oh no, by by Jupiter. I was so liking that feeling of living large especially when I can get so caught up in minutia. Jupiter has been with me for so long though that I have learned a thing or two about the property of expansion and prosperity and I can let myself be more generous of spirit and everything else, sure does feel better.

LIBRA – Yes finally coming back around the wheel to my sign. Sometimes I am just in love with love and I am feeling that urge to merge but this time I insist that I find a relationship that consists of two equal partners. Way too hard to do a relationship all by yourself. Isn’t that just beyond the point? More beauty and more harmony and I will be one happy camper.

SCORPIO – This time has been way deep even for me a Scorpio so engaging though. I feel like I have gotten a good look at the insides of my psyche as well as a few other key folks. Now we must talk about intention and how one operates in the real world. Insights and incites abound and I am ready to take it all on.

SAGITTARIUS – Let me be honest with you. I am so tired of Mars and Saturn tap dancing  around in my sign. Keeps everything so completely slow. When I want to get up and go I do not like to have to wait. You know we Sagies like to keep it moving and travel often.

CAPRICORN – Should be interesting to see how things feel when Pluto goes direct. Pluto has been running my world for so long and Pluto is so demanding. Forward motion should free me up a bit to experience more choices and choice works for me. I will still work hard to make a difference no changing that.

AQUARIUS – Politrix has become even more confusing.Nothing seems to be absolutely true and ethics are more relative. I still want to be honorable in my choices and hope that most folks will do the same.So many issues that can have dire results other wise so please think twice and go with your gut.

PISCES -My third eye is 20 /20. So many images and vibrations making themselves  known to me. This is a time when I want to join together with my tribe to feel peace.I can hunker down on my own and create serenity but sure would feel better to share those feelings with others of a like mind.

I like to celebrate the coming of the Sacred Love Goddesses starting on Feb 1 or 2 with Imbolc,  Candlemas,  Brigid’s Day and so on.
Mainstream culture likes to deify St. Valentine and give this bloodthirsty slayer of women the one day of the year that Love is supposed to Rule. If you want to burn your own candle  for this ritual choose from these colors

RED TO SET PASSIONS FLAMES, PINK FOR SWEET WARMTH,AND WHITE for a clean slate to start over.That is more like colors for European/Wiccan magic. If you prefer to work with Oshun the Yoruba Orisha/Goddess of LOVE you would want to use Orange,Gold or Green

How 2 Know When Your Parent Stops Driving

Where Passion Meets Reality!

Where Passion Meets Reality!

9.10.16 How to Know When Your Parent Stops Driving

myg-podcast-091016 – Mary Yamin-Garone

Good afternoon. Welcome to Demystifying Alzheimer’s. I’m your hostess Mary Yamin-Garone.

Today’s topic is “How Do You Know When Your Parent Should Stop Driving.”

According to a survey conducted by the National Safety Council and Caring.com, an online site for baby boomers caring for their parents, adult children would rather talk to their parents about funeral plans than about relinquishing their car keys.

Twenty-five percent of the adult children surveyed said they’d like to see their elderly parents limit their driving. Some 33% favored some form of mandatory testing or restrictions on elderly drivers.

When your father scoffs when you suggest he give up his car—he insists he’s safe because he drives slowly, not very far and not very often—he may have a point. If he’s physically healthy and in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, he may not pose a danger to himself or others.

It’s not always easy to tell when your loved one is having difficulty driving. They may not realize that their driving skills are deteriorating or they may not want to acknowledge it. While we all want our parents to maintain their independence as long as possible, don’t wait for an accident to happen before you intervene.

Here’s what you can do:

Take several drives with your parent at the wheel. Observe their driving with an open mind. Do they fasten their seat belt? Are they tense? Are they aware of traffic lights, road signs, pedestrians and the reactions of other motorists? Do they lean forward in their seat and appear worried or preoccupied? Are they often irritated at other drivers? Do they seem particularly tired after driving? If so, they’re probably having some anxiety about driving.

Notice whether your parent is reluctant to drive. For example, they may decline invitations to social events that require them to drive, especially at night. This may be their way of recognizing that they’re aware of their own limitations and they’re taking steps to avoid an accident.

Watch for slowed reaction time. Do they consistently wait too long to respond to traffic lights or other driving cues?

Notice their awareness of their driving environment. Do they tailgate? Do they stay in their own lane or let the car drift close to the median? Do they complain of getting lost more than they used to?

When they’re not with you, walk around the car and look for signs of damage. Everyone’s car gets nicked now and then but does their car have the kind of scratches or dents that could indicate driving mishaps? If so, ask about them.

If you’ve noticed some questionable driving on your parent’s part, ask whether they’ve been ticketed for speeding or other traffic violations. Do this in a neutral, non-accusatory way when they’re not behind the wheel.

If you’re not comfortable asking about tickets, ask if their car insurance has gone up. If their rate has increased, it may be a sign that they’ve had driving infractions.

Check in with trusted friends and neighbors. Don’t wait for them to call you if you’re worried about your parents’ driving. If you don’t live close by, try to identify one or two individuals who’d be willing to keep you informed about your parents’ driving and other safety matters. Contact them regularly and be sure they have your contact information so they can reach you if anything comes up.

Have your parent’s eyes checked regularly. Many older people have vision problems but won’t admit it and they’ll go to great lengths to avoid seeing their eye doctor. Schedule an appointment for them. Reassure your loved one that they may only need new glasses. Seeing the eye doctor doesn’t automatically mean you parent will lose their license. It may just clear up a vision problem and they’ll be back on the road before they know it.

Have their hearing checked regularly. Few of us age without some hearing loss. In fact, one-third of those over 65 have hearing problems. Hearing loss can happen gradually, without your loved one realizing it. It can weaken their ability to hear horns, screeching tires, sirens and other sounds that would normally put someone on high alert.

Have a conversation with your loved one. Ask them if they think they can still manage and are comfortable driving. You might get a suspicious or serious look or an argumentative tone. Stay calm and remember, you’re talking about their independence. Think how you’d feel if someone tried to take away your license. Don’t treat your parents like children. Just find out how they feel about driving. You might be surprised. They may have been waiting for you to ask.

Talk to your parent’s doctor. You may want to enlist the aid of the family doctor to discuss driving with your parent during their next appointment. While your loved one may not want to hear it from you, they’ll listen to their trusted family physician.

Ask about prescription drug interactions. Many drugs can compromise your parent’s driving ability by causing drowsiness, blurred vision, confusion, tremors or other side effects. Certain drugs taken in combination also can interact and cause serious problems. If your loved one takes a lot of pills every day, it’s important to educate yourself about each medication and its possible side effects. Even herbal remedies and over-the-counter medications can affect driving ability. Talk to your parent’s doctor and pharmacist about possible drug interactions and side effects.

No one likes losing their independence at any age. When safety issues are at stake, however, you may have to accept the fact that your parents can no longer drive by themselves. Enlist all the help and support you can get if and when that decision needs to be made.

That’s all for today. Thanks for listening. I hope this information was helpful.

Join me next time for more Demystifying Alzheimer’s.

Anxious Moments & the Future Talk Show Internet Host

Anxious Moments & the Future Talk Show Internet Host

Mobile Bue

Lights!  Cameras!!  Action!!

The producer just waved their hand. You’re on the air. Now is the time for all good talk show internet hosts to get on the air with a positive surge to their voice.

Right?

Wrong!

Perhaps!

Right, wrong, perhaps…

Not all talk show internet hosts operate alike. Some come prepared. Know what they’re going to say, how they’re going to say it, and will say it with that special know-how that comes to them easily.

There are to other talk show hosts that have prepared for their big day(s) with a script in hand. They glance at it from time to time, not exactly reading it but knowing where to pause, take a gulp of air, and then peruse their script to finish up the conversation, dialogue, introduction, or ending to the story or show.

And then there are the dregs of the barrel who believe that by reading their script that the audience won’t know because they can’t see the host(s) reading directly from their script or teleprompter.

But, these hosts are fooling themselves. The audience knows when someone is following a script, helping themselves to 3 by 5 index cards, and outright reading of several pages of triple-spacing from a prepared text.

How do these listeners know this?

Well, because

listening to a prepared speech is like listening to someone who has read their verbiage from a prepared script.

Have you ever interviewed a guest who already knows the answers to the questions beforehand? Remember this the next time a guest asks you for the questions before the interview, and listen to what happens.

The audience already knows that this material was prepared beforehand, and they don’t have to listen to it because they have already heard it before.

When you go on the internet to do your first-time research, most hosts will search for the standard questions that many people ask to get them started. You know which ones they are, but let me refresh your memory.

What made you start writing?

How old were you when you started writing?

What do you love most about writing?

Who influenced you to right?

Do you have your spouse’s approval? family? friends?

And, so it goes. Generic questions that anyone can answer easily without really having to work hard at it. And, if you listen close enough, the answers given by your guests will pretty much sound the same.

Do you really want that for your audience?

Once again, this year

PWRNetwork was invited by The International Miami Book Festival to come down for an extended weekend and interview authors from all over the world.

The interview times are 10 minutes each. There’s allot of questions a host can ask within a 10 minute period without using the classic questions from above. First you’ve got to introduce yourself, your station, and your author plus their book, then you launch into your questions. If you’ve listened carefully when you introduced your author, you can tell whether or not this author has read their book and is ready for an interview.

Usually you ask a question about the book itself to break the ice, then you listen to what the author has to say. From there you go on. Always make sure you save enough time for the author to brag about themselves, talk promotion and marketing of their book, and where their next interview is taking place. Only then can you ask one classical question like, “What’s the name of your next book and when is it coming out?”

That’s the only classical question you should be asking.

What about if the author veers to the sameness of questions because it’s safer. Then, do it without sounding trite. “The customer is always right!”

The interview is about the “author” not you.

As long as you remember that, you both will score victory for both sides!
