Context: For a few months in the summer of 2011, I worked for a community radio station. I had only been employed at station a few short weeks when, on the Fourth of July I was charged with being the LONE rabbit behind the wheel at mission control supporting a live remote and fireworks show at Holiday Island. A baptism of fire to be sure, but I loved every minute of it.
Even though my time at the station was short, it was long enough for me to realize that both my creative and technical self had a thing for the broadcasting environment. After I left I took the skills I developed with me and put together a little hobby online ‘art radio’ station so I could continue to tinker around with the technology.
My station, Eureka Art Radio, was hosted on Live365 for about a year and was doing well. I even worked out how to broadcast ‘live’ from my home office. Unfortunately, Live365 went down for a few years. Many independent radio DJs were devastated. Including me.

Reflection: At both the terrestrial station and the online station I learned a lot about working on a complex project with many moving parts.
