I’ve made no secret about the fact that one of the reasons I’ve made radio a career instead of writing is that my spelling is, without question, some of the worst you’d see anywhere.
The reasons are pretty simple!
I was bored with spelling as a child finding myself far more interested in music, electronics, and girls.
Since I have written everything I read on the air in braille, and since there often isn’t time to pre-read the copy, I have over the years grown to spelling everything like it sounds instead of the way it should be spelled.
The software I use to write these blogs dates back more than 10 years, so many of the words that have become part of our everyday vocabulary aren’t even in it’s spelling database.
Google, blog, Youtube, Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter are just some of the words that weren’t being used when the program was created.
So Billy Elvis, our Fun 107.1 Program Director, is tasked each day with entering the content so that it appears professionally done.
It may be time for a software upgrade!
That’s the way I see it.
