In January of 2013 your humble host decided to try Blogtalk Radio as a platform. No broadcasting experience, very little radio experience. My motivation was to allow my dad, actor Ned Beatty, to follow my exploits without having to read as he, like myself suffers from Macular Degeneration.
  So Dr. Jahi Issa and myself came up with a program called Dr. J. and #douggiestyle. It was 'narrow' casting and we were pleased to have over a hundred listens when we only cared that my pops could listen and keep up with my adventures anytime, without tying up his phone line hearing me ramble on, and without having to use the extreme eyewear and display to read my blog that aging eyes may require.
   After three casts we decided to take on a topical issue, "gun control" ( unilateral personal disarmament ). With no promotion, no money, nobody knowing who the heck we were we got over a thousand listens. Not too shabby.

  In April of 2013 I was invited to WGMD Rehoboth Beach by then Program Director Bill Colley ( now with KLIX Twin Falls Idaho ) to discuss a part time announcer job. Through a twist of fate, in the spring of 2014 what passes for management at WGMD decided in an incredibly bone headed move, my opinion only, to replace Mr. Colley on afternoon drive with your's truly. BREATHAKING
   This show was my first attempt to reach a broader audience, and relevant and topical today.
