and other extraordinary topics. My guest is Rod C. Davis of Las Vegas, NV. Rod is no KOOK; he is an experienced financial manager who has had a great deal of real work in his life. We have twice had the pleasure of meeting him and his lovely wife in Nevada.
Welcome! It's easy to hear this. Just click on the link to open up the audio, as well as my photo and a biography.
If you listen to this, and like what you hear, I'd appreciate a favor from you.
Please call Tara Taylor, the Vice President of Marketing and Planning at Oregon Public Broadcasting, at 503-293-1969. Tell her you want to SPEAK OUT LOUD for re-imagining radio and television for next year.
Kindly leave a brief message to tell her you do listen to Internet radio and have heard the Ellen Kimball Radio Lady on the Accessible Information Network or AccessInfoNet.
Also, it would be very helpful if you report back to this thread.
I am planning meetings with management here in Portland. Remember, I am a retired broadcaster, and am not looking for a job, just want to use my abilities to give some vision to people who seem to be either struggling with problems of listenership on an SAP channel. We don't want them to just wash away a 33-year-old radio reading service which was dedicated to the blind, handicapped, homebound, and senior citizens beginning in 1975.
Thank you for your help.

8. It's OK. I understand. However, I give people time to discuss their topics.

I've talked to Presidents and paupers, zealots of every kind of religion and non-religion you can imagine, even kindergarten kind of sex fantasy, and of course... politics... politics... politics.
When I tell people I'm on the radio, there is a pause. "What do you talk about?" is the usual question. My reply is, "Anything my studio guests or telephone caller wants to talk about, except sports." However, I am a closet supporter of the Boston Red Sox, NE Patriots, and the Miami Dolphins. Used to follow NY teams, but my ex-husband was the main fan, not me.
I'm sure if there are call-ins to my shows, as there have been in the past, you would have time to present your point of view. Interestingly enough, Rod is a very kind and interesting man whom I befriended when he contacted me to interview him about his book "River of Fear."
Hey, Art Bell discussed these theories for years, and so did I, usually on the overnight shift. Having a slow night? Invite an astrologer on a show! Or a psychic! Believe me, I've done my share of those. Also, we had a Date-A-Mate show (people called in and described themselves, then left their telephone number with the radio engineer and anyone could get it) and something I called "Ellen's Sellin' Corner." Have a used sofa for sale? Chairs? A desk? A collectible? No problem. Remember the show "Northern Exposure"? In the early 1970s, we were all friends on the all-night radio shift and there weren't any problems. It got much uglier after 1972. Daytime radio became shrill and uncompromising -- and when I finished my shift after dark on winter nights, CBS assigned someone to walk me to my car for security purposes. This was at the Prudential Center garage.
13. Hi Tuesday Afternoon -- The "tooth saga" continues. I am not hopeful of saving the darn thing.

Still having occasional pain -- in no particulr pattern -- after six months of treatment. Not abcessed, just irritation and inflamation -- a tooth that keeps grumbling.
I had an appointment to extract the molar on Feb. 5th, which I cancelled. (It was feeling OK that week.)
Now we're off to Hawaii on Feb. 25 and there is no time to do an extraction. I'll just have to manage it until March 14th.
This is the damnedest thing I've ever experienced. Cracked Tooth Syndrome -- look it up if you're at all interested. I don't know what I bit into that caused this. One endodontist said it was the toughest thing to figure out. Cracks in teeth DO NOT show up on X-ray. Therefore, the only thing they have to go on is the patient's description of symptoms.
Thanks for the comfort. Did you have a good Valentine's Day?
