Please email resume to Letter to the Editor The Power of Radio KISL has been featuring local disc jockeys as part of their 'Meet the Voice' series introducing the many people involved in the local radio station. This week KISLs Community Outreach Director Jordan Monroe wanted to take the time and share why radio is so im- portant to him. Turn on the radio, and what can you hear? What can't you hear? When you turn on the radio it is possible for everyone in your city, county, state, and nation even, to be listening to the same thing. But that doesn't seem so revolu- tionary these days. These days we find ourselves with more and more access to peo- ple and things further and further away. Television, telephones, cell phones, computers and internet, not to mention the good old postal service, all provide similar func- tions- they connect us all. And each form does it in a different way, highlighting different charac- teristics that tell their own special side of the story. Story: Communication is anchored in stories; conveying what is in one thought to more than one person. This is not the simplest of ac- complishments, whether we are expressing the everyday routine, the everyday lovely, or the every- day amazing ... everyday things are happening that people want to share. Share to remember, share to understand, share to do better, share to look into the future, share to connect ... Sharing: That is the entire fnction of ra- dio: music, talk, news, performanc- es...sharing. And yet still, radio seems no different in purpose than any other communication means already mentioned. The feelings, the insights, the music, the mes- sage, all brought directly to you by means that can reach the masses. To You: Radio is communication to the masses. And the story sharing of radio is powerful like a book. As you turn each page, as you listen to each segment, the greatness of the narrative is only reached in the world of your mind, in the vast of your imagination. So while ev- eryone around you is listening in, only you can recreate the story in your mind as it is told to you. It is an incredibly personal experience shared by many. And each time the story is recreated in a mind it is a little different. Not that the story itself changes, but the understand- ing, the pictures all are brought to- gether by you, and only you. The Power of Radio: The power to reach millions, and to be only understood one at a time. The power to tell a story that everyone can listen to, but in order to capture, you must +bring in your whole mind and hear for yourself. There is a great story I heard when I first-started working in radio: When television came roaring in after World War II, they did a little school survey asking children which they preferred and why - television or radio. And there was this 7-year-old boy who said. he preferred radio, "because the pic- tures were better." They say radio is the theater of the mind, and the more I get involved with our local radio station, the more I come to appreciate and want to share the power of radio.
