So, you are here reading this blog and what should be many more. Possibly, even have LIVE video feeds over time with me talking to you fans! The goal here is to encourage, share, and let you know the uniqueness about TMV Café Radio! What many of you might not know is I, the station owner, am disabled and fight through many struggles to keep giving you such exciting shows, great Independent Music Artists, and Positive outlooks on life! This year alone, I have even started trying to create a hashtag for the station called, #ThinkPositive2017! Why? Because I believe that if we think positive instead of on all the problems in this world, then we can start making a difference. It is making that difference that will help spark up a great feeling in our lives and keep a smile on our face and even help press us forward in our rough times.
Rough times! Take me for example. In 2008, I suffered three strokes! Take a deep breath and hold on to that question that just popped in your mind. It turns out over all these years. I got the answer as to WHY I had those strokes. It was because of a massive tumor that I had growing on my thyroid. It was cutting off the blood flow to my brain and at a few points enough to cause me to have strokes. Even worse, the blood loss and strokes caused me to lose a great deal of memories. Now, you will hear more about my situation over time. It isn’t because I want you to feel bad for me, but more to understand my situation and maybe even get encouraged to push past your hard times in life. We all have struggles and problems, but we ALL choose what will do at that moment. It is that defining moment that we either give up or not let the problem hold us down and we press on! Remember that! Because, I am going to fast forward to NOW!
You see the dated I am writing this, over the weekend, I suffered two falls. Since the strokes, my health has gone down and I struggle to walk (with the help of a cane). My second fall put me in bed with medication that practically keeps me in a sleep status! Not fun, if you ask me. However, I take moments of being awake and let my mind work, which helps me think of you guys.
Look, to be honest, I don’t want people to think about the station and think about how a disabled person runs it. I want people to look at TMV Café Radio and think about the GREATEST Independent Music Artists, the AWESOME shows, and the FANTASTIC Fans who listen to and support the station. You guys are my driving force, more than you know. It is because of YOU that I keep pressing forward and will push to keep this blog active. Yes, you get to know the FACE of the man behind the station! I have a great deal of people to thank for their help over the years, but one I never will forget who helped forge many aspects of the station and that is Greg Hall, aka the Funky Werepig! Thank you Greg for your friendship and support!
Thank YOU for listening to the station, supporting the artists, and
being just FANTASTIC!
