GARYTALK.COM – I’ve not written anything for my GaryWords section of Garytalk for quite awhile. It’s not that I’ve taken a vacation, or anything as pleasurable as that. It’s quite the opposite. During my retirement years, I’ve been partially busy writing and editing content for eight websites. Additionally, I’ve been occupied with curating and processing photos for optimal internet viewing on and for the same websites. I also maintain each of the websites as webmaster, which requires a little, internal, technical work now and then. But, that’s not all.
GARYTALK.COM (GaryTapes No.1) – The first recording of conversations entered into the GaryTapes section of the GaryTalk.com website features a former, popular, Republican Wisconsin Governor, and a former Wood County, Wisconsin County Supervisor. During a career spanning from the mid-1960s until the year 2000, and beyond, Gary W. Morgan held thousands of broadcast radio, on-air conversations, with a variety of people, including elected officials. Many of the interviews were heard on a Central Wisconsin AM radio station. What follows is a recorded excerpt from one day in the life of the Morgan and Michaels Radio Show on WFHR in Wisconsin Rapids, WI.
GARYTALK.COM (03/16/2016) – A recent study continues to point to the rapid growth of digital mobile phones and the use of smartphones to listen to music. On the surface, this would lead one to believe this would, correspondingly, increase the total audience for “radio” of all kinds, both internet-only, and over-the-air stations that feed their programming onto the internet. However, the increase in music listening on phones does not mean the music being listened to is truly over radio in the traditional “radio” sense. Unfortunately, some internet website marketers call what they offer, “radio”, but that is not always accurate.
GARYTALK.COM (02-14-2016) – In this presidential election year, as in every election cycle, people are influenced not only by political advertising, but, also by the voices they hear on their radio, tv, internet and cable stations. It’s true, opinions are shaped also by commentary in newspapers, magazines and website blogs, but this is about the fact that those who control the airwaves have control of the thoughts and actions of voters.
