Do You Remember?
Posted 4/2/2012 7:34:00 PM

Do you remember when you would listen to the radio years ago and you'd hear your favorite songs? You would also hear that voice, that personality of your favorite disc jockey. They would seem larger than life.

This was all before you had any idea what face that voice on the radio came with. Since the years of the internet and radio station websites, you can find out what your favorite, or any radio personality looks like with the click of a mouse. The reason I bring this up is because I've always wondered how you the listener felt about that.

Did you like the mystery of not knowing what your best radio jock looked like. I know I would always try to picture in my mind what color hair they had, or how tall they were, or if they were slender or husky etc... Do you enjoy putting the face with the voice now? I'm sure you've heard the old addage... "he's got a face for radio." I often wonder if people still hold their favorite personalities in high regard like we used to. What do you think??

    I still hold my favorites in high regard. I think it is so much better now. If the voice alone can attract and keep listener's, it's so nice to be able to connect the voice with a face. It is also great to be able to comment to a dj on air, about something they just stated, or about a song, that was just played, or just be able to say hi!
