one good turn deserves another

Although I (fortunately) have no connection to the dreaded disease of MS, I made a contribution as payment for a fabulous broadcasting workship on Saturday called "From Idea to Air" by CBC radio guru Tod Maffin.

His wife was diagnosed with MS shortly after their marriage a few years ago and he is working hard with her to raise money for the MS Society of BC for research on the disease. Apparently breakthroughs are being discovered so it is well worth donating to.

The workshop was fabulous, as expected, and as usual. Tod is very knowledgeable about the radio biz. Not about Ukrainian music or anything, but just about everything else! Anyway, I picked up some nifty writing techniques as well as broadcasting tips so it was more than worthwhile. Hope to attend more such workshop.
