Folks, Dave S. has been a real boon and blessing to us here on The Mighty 1090 KAAY Blogspot. Even though he wears many hats at work and has many demands on his time, he STILL finds the wherewithal to jump in and take care of the computer aspects of the blog. Notice the new look? I'm not a computer whiz- never have been and, due to my own lack of time and heavy work loads over the years, I've not taken any more time than to be a computer operator. I am in awe of those who are fortunate enough to be able to absorb and utilize skills, ANY skills...and in Dave's case, who are willing to come alongside and help make a beloved thing all the better! There are a lot of things that go on behind the scenes of this blog many of us are not aware of (well, that's true in anything, isn't it?), and Dave makes it all look easy!
All of us have specific talents and gifts...and it is a wonderful thing when gifted people can come together on a particular matter and make it better for others of like mindedness. Look at the wide appeal KAAY had for so many people! Not only in the U.S.A., but outside the country as well...and we, along with others, have the opportunity and privelege to bring it to YOU, dear reader and enthusiast!
I'll paraphrase the great David B. Treadway, currently still the Voice of Arkansas over on US 97: Whoever's on the mic gets all the praise or all the blame, no matter the circumstances (or something like that). Well, most of my siglines might be on these posts, but there is a bevy of folks supporting this blog, of whom I'd like to share the praise. It may be in technical ways, it may be in contributing stories and anecdotes or materials and audio, but rest assured that it is a group effort. Without folks like Dave, this blog would be much more plain and kludgey.
Hats off to you, Dave! Keep up the great work!
