Juneteenth. (8)

A final photo before leaving Juneteenth.  Cory O. is a “radio personality” (we used to call them disc-jockeys) playing blues, hip-hop and smooth jazz via internet.  I met Cory at the annual Juneteenth community gathering in Neylandville, Texas.  As an old disc-jockey myself, I am partial to other radio folks.  In my day, we had to cue records by hand and carefully time our breaks— radio was an art.  Cory O. tells me that nowadays it is all computerized, so that even the breaks (when the deejay talks) are often recorded beforehand and played back automatically.  Much of the art of radio is now automated.  Aww… fond regrets for the old ways… but life goes on.

Please let us know what you think about what we see.
