If you’ve listened to bRight@Night over the last few months you may have noticed that I tend to ramble at times. That’s being generous, but it’s my post and I’ll characterize it as I like. That fact is, that when you get up around 4:30 in the morning you tend to be tired by 11:00 that night. Or maybe that’s just me.
In part, the show time is dictated by other outside, or rather inside, considerations. I can’t really do the show at noon since I’m at work. Besides, as good as bRight@Night may be, who really wants to compete with Rush?
Early evening isn’t a great option. I don’t think it would be great radio to have to repeat, “would you kids quiet down, I’m trying to do a radio show” every few minutes during the broadcast. I could do it when I get up, but really, how many of you would tune in at 5am?
So, let’s look at these options. I could do the show at 6am. That’s where it started a long time back. The problem there is for anyone listening in any timezone west of here. Another option is 8am. I’d have to make sure I got back from dropping the boys at school, and I’d have to end the broadcast and rush out the door to work.
Then there’s the evening. It doesn’t start “really” quieting down until after 9pm. I could do it at 10:30, but that’s just a little bit better (as far as that ready-to-sleep, dozing thing goes). 10:00? 9:30?
Why don’t I just open it up to a poll. It’s over there on the right. If you have any suggestions, leave a comment. Also, if you have any suggestions for content, the comments are a good place for that, too.
