Inner Voice Inventory

Saturday August 11th, 2012 – Fox Lake, IL

   I’ve been doing a lot of extremely satisfying work these last few months, and a huge part of me feels like a million bucks in crispy cash fresh out of the  mint. Life has been going exactly how it should in some ways. I’ve been having red hot comedy shows on a consistent basis and on the air a lot on more than one radio station. My creative itches are being scratched, and that’s my thing.

Unfortunately, it all runs in cycles and I feel the end of one is here. I had a lot of fun doing lots of things I love to do, but now I need to catch up on a lot of other things. Comedy work is scarce for a while, as is paid radio. I still love doing The Mothership Connection on Sunday nights from 8pm to midnight on AM 1050 WLIP in Kenosha, WI but I need to turn a buck sooner than later.

That may or may not happen, but I’m on a great roll with that project right now. I’ve got a new energy surge and everything seems to be falling into place. I’m getting great guests by the pound coming out of the woodwork, and it all just feels right. My inner voice tells me I’m hitting stride.

I don’t always listen to that voice, and that’s where a lot of my worst problems have originated. I don’t know who or what that voice is, but we all have it and it’s always right. We may think we can out think it, but it’s impossible. It always seems to have the answers, no matter the situation.

I’ve been talking to some radio people I know, and I just feel it’s the right thing to develop this project right now. 2012 and all the apocalyptic swirl around December 21st is making these kinds of topics more talked about than ever. Maybe I’ll be in the right place at the right time for once.

One thing I really feel developing in a good way is the whole ‘King of Uranus’ concept. That’s a sure fire winner, as I counted at least five or six people in traffic today that took pictures of my ‘URANUS 2’ license plate and ‘I (heart) URANUS’ bumper sticker. I usually see it in my mirror at a stop light, but sometimes I catch others tailgating or following me so they can snap a picture.

This is market research at its finest. I find myself catching someone snapping a picture EVERY SINGLE DAY. No exceptions. Sometimes they’ll shoot me a big smile and beep and a wave or a thumbs up, but it happens without fail. My inner voice is screaming at me to develop this as well.

Part of me is still afraid to pursue all this but another part is afraid not to. I keep saying I want a payoff for all the dues I’ve had to pay, but I never pictured it coming from Uranus. It sure would by satisfying to finally hit it big and be able to be of service to humanity at the same time. It’s the best of both worlds, and it just may happen if I keep doing what I’m doing. I feel a winning vibe.

Laughter changes people’s entire state. I see it every day. My head is usually wrapped around a problem I may be having or thinking of something totally out there as I tend to do, but then I will notice the people in the car behind me laughing and waving and it’s a game changer almost like a person seeing Santa walk into a room. I’ve seen people of all ages go nuts seeing Santa, and I am feeling the same reaction. I know this is a crazy idea, but it’s also a crazy planet and it just might work. Can the King of Uranus host a paranormal radio show? Why not? Nobody made any rules.
