Al B. Love! has logged over 25 years in the industry and he reflects on how he became interested in broadcasting and production. "I've been interested in "sound" for as long as I can remember. I used to have a portable cassette recorder and I found that when the batteries would run low, when I recorded my voice, it would change the pitch and sound. I also used to make tapes for a cousin of mine in L.A. We would always try to outdo each other. He was very good at mixing but I was better at putting together elements that could be played between songs. So when I would send him tapes, they would sound like a radio show complete with liners, drops and even commercials I would make up. When I first started out, I didn't own a lot of elaborate equipment.-just a Radio Shack mixer, a cassette recorder, a really cheap microphone and some old scratchy sound effects records that I would use to create drops and things".

EMPLOYERS CAN MAKE THE WORKPLACE A HEALTHY PLACE
Good Eating, Good Drinking & Exercise - The Answers to Good Life
Healthy eating and proper exercise can enhance workplace performance. Employers can contribute with the development of thoughtful practices that encourage employees to engage in healthy activities.
Employers can establish programs within the work space that would create and improve partnering and group interaction. There is a special dynamic that develops when employees share diet tips, food dishes, recipes and in general fruits and vegetables that can be distributed throughout the office and can be appreciated within the work environment. Technology has opened the door for creativity and sharing that has never been offered previously. Hassle-free information is just a click away.
Employers can contribute by designated a specific time and day that they will provide health information professionals to be available to their employees in order to keep them apprised of new and cutting edge information about food, exercise and beverages.
The employer can establish a once a week Farmer’s Market on site of the workplace for employees to purchase and consume healthy foods for themselves and their families.
Employers can install an alkaline water machine in their facility to offer water that contains a high ph balance for their workforce.
Employers can create healthy competition within the work space. By working with the health care providers that provides medical insurance for their employees, the employer can create a program where the staff can monitor their steps, cholesterol, blood pressure, and glucose levels. All personal medical information will only be handled by health care providers and with the written permission of the employee.
Employers can provide extra time mid-day for workers to participate in walks, cycling, yoga, eliminate stress activities, exercise and other activities that will enhance body movement.
Employers can provide monetary or gift incentives for the winners of specific competitions. For the employer, the goal is to improve job performance, longevity and fewer critical illnesses which lead to loss of work hours and stress on others. Some programs are free to California Health Care Providers.
