Radio is like...

I thought about this today, but don't know if other people have said it: Working in radio is like being in love with someone who doesn't have time for you.

That's how I would describe what I read in The Cash Cage (check out the free excerpt) before I started working in The Biz, and I've discovered that type of situation as well.

If you are even thinking of working in radio, I highly recommend the book. The author, Corey Deitz, has been through a lot, and even though other people won't have the same experiences, it still serves as a kind of warning. It's just better to go into something with your eyes open, no matter what industry you're working in.

But I think I should read the book again--I'm sure my perspective will be different.

Update: I emailed my "Working in radio is like..." statement to Deitz, and he replied: "Well said!"
