Episode Info: Podcast Changes Hello Happy Campers! This morning we’ll talk about Podcast Changes and how they will improve the Living the RV Dream Podcast. But first a little history. Radio Days In the fall of 2008, our son, who was a radio producer in Sarasota Florida, called us with a proposal. He had lost a sponsored show during the important Saturday morning “drive time”. Perhaps we could come in and do an RV show for him? We knew NOTHING about radio or broadcasting. Kathy and I looked at each other and said “why not?” That next Saturday morning, Living the RV Dream was born. Steve was a great coach and made us quite comfortable. “What should we say?”, we both asked. Steve said just talk about RVing, its your passion. And so we did. That was on WSRQ, a very small station with great reach due to an internet feed. // A Podcast is Born We did the show every week for over 4 months and then it was time for us to get moving as it would soon be pretty hot in Florida. What about the show? We had now gained a nice sized internet audience anoong with some dedicated local listeners. That’s when I discovered podcasting. It was pretty new then having only been around for a few years, but I dived right in and learned all I could. Six weeks later we were ready and we launched our first podcast. That was LTRVD0001. The sound was a little rough around the edges, but were now broadcasters! We grow as Podcasters As we got more and more comfortable with doing the show, we learned how to make the sound better and invested in some new equipment to help us do the work easier. We started attending RV shows as members of the “Press”. What a hoot! We would get in free to events we loved and talk about them on our show. How cool was that?! We did many interviews with other RVers and folks in the RV industry. We started a little Facebook group for our listeners. I started a web site. We were filling up our retirement time as “Media People”…LOL! Then you listeners ganged up on us by email and said we needed to write a book of all things. And we did…twice. Its 2017 Already All that started 8 years ago. We’ve put a lot of miles on our rig, the Dream Machine since then. We were on the road a total of 12 years and loved every minute of it.
