5 years and more...

I write this and I have stopped writing in the blog because I don't really know how many of you actually read this.  Sure I have a thing that tells me the amount of readers and it shows quite a bit, but I haven't heard from you guys.  However, I want to let you know something and that is why I am writing on the blog today.

May 18th, of 2008 is when I started doing Live Radio broadcasts.  Many of you came to listen and have supported me ever since.  I can actually remember my very first interview, it was with an author friend of mine named T.M. Mason.  A great writer and wonderful friend.  It was because of him, I learned to be an author you shouldn't have to pay to get published and boy is that right.  Do you pay your employer to work? So why should we pay to get published, isn't it a job?

Anyway from there interview after interview.  Sure, I had my fair share of ups and downs.  Some with health, some with the poor choice of friends, some with just making the wrong decision.  I don't mind confessing when I am wrong, it helps with the next step of moving past the problem and getting to the next.  Now, I know you ask, "Why is he saying this part?" Truth be told that is how I moved along in radio to find myself where I am today.  I made some choices, I listened to some people, and I finally decided what many of us want to do, branch out on our own and make something of ourselves. It was a process but it did bring the birth of TMV Cafe Radio.

You guys have helped all the way.  Many of you my great friends, family, and fans have helped me make decisions along the way.  Some of you by talking, others by just listening to you.  You the fans of the shows have helped too, I know you might realize how, but I have listened to you guys too. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for ALL of you.

It is hard to believe it is going to be 5 years this month, but truth be told, I am proud to say it. 5 years is a long time for some and not long enough for others, but in 5 years look at all the people I have spoken with, met, and even had the opportunity to sit down to a meal with.  I would list names, but then I would have to write a book on just the names. Each and everyone of you that I have had the opportunity to speak with or even meet in person are awesome.   Thank you for allowing those chances to happen.

What is in store for the next 5 years?  Well, let's start with health permitting, I continue to grow with TMV Cafe Radio.  I have things in the works, films, events, Youtube shorts, and so much more.  It will all fall under the TMV Cafe umbrella and I can't wait to meet more of you guys. With my health improving some, I can say I plan on making conventions more regularly so that means you will get a chance to see me as well as more involvement in the community.

San Antonio is the roots of TMV Cafe Radio and I will continue to get out there and meet all of San Antonio as well as helping businesses get known, Indie Artists get heard, and people that are just plain amazing get seen. It's a goal and one I plan on trying to make happen sooner than later.

What about you guys?  What would you like to see in the next 5 years?  Let me know.  Let's see if we can make it happen!
