How do you do all of what you do?

That’s a very good question. I’m very fortunate in terms of the radio show, we have a whole team that works on the radio show. Not only do we have people who help us out right here, at KTTZ, but we also have a team at WFIU in Bloomington, Indiana, which is where the program originates from. So yes, I have helpers.

Tell us about what you do at the school of music.
