Since I am now officially retired after 30 years of service with the New Jersey Division of Taxation, (my official last day of work was December 28th 2018 and I have a few photos “Last Day Photos” posted on our Flickr page) I have the luxury of not keeping regular hours and sleeping in and staying up late and pursuing hobbies and all that fun stuff. In December I proposed to my boss Neal Ellis at “Radio Once More” the idea of me occasionally “popping on” for an impromptu Live Show for a quick hour. This is in addition to our regular 3 hour Live Show every other Wednesday evening from 9PM-12AM (eastern) known as “Woo-Hoo Wednesday”.
During the 1 hour impromptu Live Show, we would not have our regular segments, and open up the “Holmsey Listener Line” (609) 845-3570 for anyone that would like to chat or simply say “Hello”!!!! Ordinarily, I would not have a planned theme, just some “Old Time Radio” programs and music ready to go to accompany the conversation. Although, if the opportunity presents itself, I can use the hour for a specific theme or topic, as we did recently when we focused on Groucho Marx and played some Groucho songs and clips along with an episode of “You Bet Your Life”.
Additionally, this gives me the opportunity to have additional guests on Live, either by Skype, Zoom, or they can join me in the studio and chat Live and chat with our listeners on our “Holmsey Listener Line”. The Big Boss Loved the idea of this impromptu Live Show and we decided to call it…..”Woo-Hoo Extra”!!!!!! We’ve already done a few and it’s worked out very well. I can pop on at any time, day or night for a quick hour. Keep an eye on the “Radio Once More” Facebook Page, I’ll make a post before we “pop on” for another installment of “Woo-Hoo Extra” on “Radio Once More”!!!!!
I’m looking forward to chatting with you on “Radio Once More” during a future installment of….”Woo-Hoo Extra”!!!!!!!!!
