We can't all be superstars like you, jjenkins.

I mean, SOMEBODY has to take all those crap jobs you turn down, right?

Although I gotta say.. YOUR accomplishments aren't real clear. Seems like if you really were (or had been) somebody in the radio biz, you'd be more than happy to share that info with the group.. so I'm going to have to assume you're just talking out of your ass.

I've had even broke ass stations in micro markets put me in a motel for a month and pay me relocation expenses. Gas, tolls, food, lodging on the trip, the whole 9.

It comes down to this: You're only worth as much as you sell yourself for.

You want me to uproot my life and come to your city and do a show, and make an impact in your community, that's going to cost you more than a liner card reader/board op.

And I don't think that's unreasonable.

The lesson we can take from dylan's story is simply this: Cross your t's and dot your i's.

Got a pet and need pet friendly lodging, get that in writing.

Because a piece of paper that says 2 weeks in a hotel doesn't mean 2 weeks in a hotel for you, your dog, your cat, your goldfish, three kids, your wife, and a puerto rician hitchhiker you picked up on the way to the sunshine state.

Get it in writing. Specifically. And don't leave home without it.

LOL attitudes like that is why radio continues to struggle and loose people in the business that are talented.. I don't work in the music side of radio I work in the Talk side and yet I see my friends in radio struggle and be marginalized and continue to take it..Sad but true..

And you sound like the kinda skunk who is willing to work for peanuts just so you can say your name on the radio and talk to groupies on the phone. This is why management treats many in radio like the bottomfeeders that they are.
