Guest Hosting on Caribbean Runnings

“Sometimes the best plans are the ones that reveal themselves right before your eyes!” ~Inga O

On Fridays The Press Kittens are on air from noon to 1pm EST. Katia Kool, savvy Life TIP and I, Inga O host a weekly radio talk show on WRFG 89.3FM in Atlanta called The Press KIT with Inga O & Co. (streamed live at http://www.wrfg.org) loosely formatted with the television show The View in mind. We open with our version of Hot Topics called “Perspectives” and have a few musical interludes and usually an in studio guest who is interviewed for about 45 minutes. I’ve posted a few shows here before.

In the past we used to go for lunch and casually enjoy the “Post Show Glow” as I like to call it. Now we all seemed to have responsibilities that are pulling us in a variety of different directions. This past week I decided to press pause on my post show plans and stay at the studio. I am very fond of Caribbean Runnings, one of the shows that closely follow us.I get to hear great Caribbean music and learn all the going ons within the local and International Caribbean communities.  From time to time I’ll lend my voice to their 2 hour show.

This past week  Red Carpet Shelley and I had a blast listening to great tunes spun by DJ Superpec between interviews about this month being Caribbean Heritage Month and speaking with the highly intelligent songtress Anita Antoinette, the 2016 Caribbean Heritage Month Musical Ambassador.

I’m thankful for all the opportunities being a part of the WRFG Family affords me. I’ve met great people, all who love what they do enough to do it for free. I laugh often and I’ve come to realize that you don’t have to know exactly where you are going to know that you are in the right place.

Dance Like No One’s Watching

When I am old and gray I really don’t think I’ll care about the amount of stuff (designer; expensive or labeled with other peoples names) I have accumulated or the corporate ladder I had to climb but instead that I enjoyed those who came into my life. That I laughed often and danced without a care as to who was watching, even when my feet hurt. So I aim to do that now. I don’t want to have regrets so I try to be a little better today than yesterday. I try to bring a little sunshine into the lives of those I interact with while I’m around. I never know how long I’ll be around, nor do I know how long they will either.

Last Saturday night I went to the WRFG 89.3 FM Pledge Drive Wrap Party. I brought an abundance of fruit, I convinced people to buy raffle tickets for the station and I engaged with as many people as I could. I got drinks for people sitting in the audience and overall did what I could to make people feel welcomed. That to me is what having a good time is, connecting with new people and ensuring that we all have a good time together.

I guess one good turn deserves another because I was offered the chance to go to Angie Stones’ Album Release Party for her new album Dream. The chance to see her in concert was not planned but right on time. It happened, I’d say, because I chose to show up and as a result, was rewarded by the universe because I don’t believe in coincidences. I even found a dime on our way into the venue!
