My morning commute is not a long one, averaging twenty minutes. I live in-between San Francisco and Sacramento nested in a valley; which means that I have a mountain range on either side of the roads upon which I travel.
We are lucky enough to pick up broadcasts from both cities, although, as great as FM radio is, it travels in straight lines, which means that when I get to a point on the road that said signal is BLOCKED by a huge chunk of protruding earth, I lose reception.
I am not a fan of (most of) the morning radio available to me. The personalities they offer do not fit with mine. I found, after some desperate searching, Adam Carolla, being broadcast via KWOD. I was happy. the signal got a bit fuzzy for a traffic signal or two during my drive, but for the most part i only lost clarity for about two minutes, and, I was happy.
That morning program is no longer an option, thanks to the (BIG NETWORK AFFILIATE), which decided to drop the program altogether. I was unhappy.
Adam, loving what he does, has continued his show, with somewhat limited technology and the help of some friends working with what resources are available to them, from Adam’s home via Podcast. (Thank you for doing this).
I put some linky love in the sidebar (look to the left menu bar on this page) to the forums for the show. I called it “Gotta Have – ACE“. There, you can give Adam feedback and download the latest Podcast.
Adam will need listener participation in order for this project to be successful, so go there now. Send him ideas, questions, links to topics or oddities that he may be interested in discussing and things of that nature. Let him know I sent you and be sure to thank him– because he is doing this for FREE.
We Love You, Man. Thanks for continuing your show.
