the ‘treadmill’ that’s actually getting me somewhere.

It’s always nice to see an over-used word get a some literal meaning.  Around this place, it’s the word “Godsend”.

This week marked the One Year Anniversary of the first airing of the satellite radio series, “Billy Graham Presents An Evening At The Cove.”   Since April of last year, I’ve been editing, producing, and writing continuity for this five-day-a-week radio program on Sirius XM from my studio.

A slower than expected pre-production ramp-up meant the series started without a large backlog of finished programs, so it’s been a literal treadmill ever since.  Even the odd re-run needs re-editing and re-mixing.  That means 52 weeks worth…260 shows…and some much-appreciated work at a time when so many folks are without it.  And I at least  have lots of tangible progress to show for the constant work cycle…as well as a lot to be grateful for. 

Even nicer:  the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association decided earlier this year to continue the program (and me with it), meaning another guaranteed 12 months of production work.  This is in addition to other freelance jobs I field along the way. 

So when the blog lapses, or I sound a little sleepy on the phone, it just means there’s a flurry of activity going on here.  Sometimes, day and night.  And that is truly a Godsend!
