I love it when good folks work their tails off, push their talents farther than they ever thought they could, and find success. My friend Pete Da Tech Guy was in a bit of a hard spot a while back. Out of work and unable to find a job in his chosen field, he needed to put food on the table and rebuild a career. Daunting stuff. Most folks, and I’ve been one of them, would have played it safe, found a job at WalMart or some place like that and struggled back up the career ladder. Not Pete. He went the other direction, where all the scary stuff lives, and launched a Saturday radio show.
Unlike a lot of show hosts, who get paid a salary, Pete had to live off the advertising he brought into the show (did I mention the scary stuff), but darned if he didn’t bring in the ad sales and the audience. He’s made a success out of a crazy idea that would have scared the bejeezus out of most of us.
Now, he’s going syndicated.
As of this week (well officially Feb 2nd) DaTechGuy on DaRadio goes into Syndication through Cameo Productions!
Yes DaTechGuy will be on DaRadio on 3 count ‘em 3 radio stations in New England at its new time Saturdays 1-3 PM EST
The deal won’t change, not yet at least. He’ll still need to bring in the advertisers and the audience, but if he did it at one station, I wouldn’t bet against him doing it at three, would you? I know he has some plans to make podcasts of his show available regularly as soon as his syndication folks get DaShow up and running, so you’ll be able to listen to him there as well as on the radio or over the internet.
Pete’s doing great things up there in Massachusetts and I couldn’t be more happy nor more proud of him. Listen in one Saturday. I bet you’ll really like what he’s building.
