As November ratings approach, let’s remember that the Topical writer-producers are going to be handling prime time promos – very important spots. So if you’ve been asked to do Topicals when you have been doing image or management duties, it’s a compliment. Add how much those prime Topical spots would cost if you bought them. Sure, the hours aren’t “normal” (as if there is a normal anything). But the importance of getting the best on-air possible is the goal. Feel the love.

Seen the Sprint spots with James Earl Jones and Malcolm McDowell? Great spots. Wish their service was.
Think About This: “Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in he shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut
