Monsters & Hamsters is taking a sanity sabbatical through the end of 2016.
In addition to the usual ongoing behind-the-scenes tasks and chores around the station, I’ve been trying to catch up with deferred maintenance and needful upgrades… the sorts of things that go unnoticed until stuff goes off the rails and suddenly there’s a cascading series of emergencies.
It’s too much. I can’t do it all.
The quality of Monsters & Hamsters has suffered, and you good people deserve better. And I’m getting stressed and not having fun, and I deserve better (particularly since I, like everyone else at the station, am a volunteer). Plus I wanna get the www.stage33live.com project actually rolling, which is gonna require time and effort too, and if the station falls apart it’ll mess with that. So while I’d rather do my show than station grunt work, I gotta be strategic.
Some of our other hosts from other time slots will sit in on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 from time to time, and when that doesn’t happen, syndicated talk programs from the Black Sheep Radio schedule that you might have missed will air.
I’ll still be poppin’ ’round the station to get things done, but I’ll be off the air until January. Catch you in 2017! Probably. Happy New Year!
