There’s never enough time in the day!

I wish there was more time to work on this site, because it could be great. Back in my heyday on the chrisjonesgaming.net domain we were riding high, mostly on the coattails of a major game modification, which we could not make money on. My idea for this site, Chris Jones Media, is to take it commercial – with, among other things, gaming news from a lot of sources, and the marketing of merchandise related to gaming – an all in one gaming hub, if you will. Also – some major web projects – and an expansion of my Internet Radio presence.

I am inviting you to watch this site – follow it on Twitter, as we grow into an empire. Those are some of my goals. Lol, that Twitter account can get political – enjoy yourself.

I realize you have choices in how you get your lifestyle news and related items. Thank you for reading this here on Chris Jones Media.

The Radio Bug

It would be safe to say I still have the radio bug in me. 0ne of the original reasons I got into radio broadcasting was because I was annoyed at hearing a song and not knowing the name of it or who the artist was. I kid you not – that was one of my main motivations. In 1979-1980 I was an aspiring radio announcer at the Plattsburgh State University College radio station called WPLT (different now). I spent some time on that Campus perfecting my craft, and after a while I decided that an actual job in radio was what I was after. If I recall, it was in April 1980 that Gordie Little at WIRY 1340am must have seen something in me, and I was hired at WIRY. This was a pretty awesome thing for me, as Gordie’s guidance was the catalyst that kept me going in radio for a very long time after I had left Plattsburgh. The man was a gem, the purest human being you’d ever want to meet. His style of radio inspired me. The way he communicated with everyone, on and off the radio, was inspiring and formed the basis of how I went from radio into sales, and how I still communicate with people on a daily basis.

I stayed at WIRY in Plattsburgh, NY USA until sometime in 1981 when I had desires to check out nearby markets, namely Burlington, Vermont. For a while I was employed at WJOY 1230am, and made some good friends there. In Burlington I did a few stints on the University of Vermont campus station, WRUV, just because I could. In 1983 I decided that another move was in order, and moved back across Lake Champlain, but down the lake a bit, into Ticonderoga NY. In Ticonderoga I did some work on two different radio stations, an AM and an FM. That was fun until about 1984 when I found myself down in Glens Falls NY at WWSC 1450am, where a professional by the name of Dave Covey taught me a few things about how radio is done. WWSC was a lot like WIRY in that they were/are both hometown radio stations, broadcasting at 1000 watts of power, in their respective markets. I stayed in the Glens Falls NY radio market until about 1993, having then got into sales.

Once I was in the radio Industry, the radio bug has never left me. There’s just nothing like a tight transition from an upbeat song to a fancy station id or promo and then tight into another upbeat song. I must say I still enjoy the concept of tight music and good programming on AM Radio. You can get that now on XM Satellite Radio, and of course FM. I have heard some pretty poor programming out there – like when I hear a nice upbeat ‘jingle’ into a slow boring piece of music – but I digress.

The Radio bug is why I maintain my Internet Radio Station. Thank you for reading – now back to your regularly scheduled program.

Major Online Project to Watch For

One of my major online projects, in addition to building up this site (Chris Jones Media), is ObitsOnline.Net. This a New Concept in Online Obituaries. Obitsonline.net was created through the joint efforts of James H Cole, Robert & Pat Smith and Chris Jones. James H Cole is the owner of several newspapers and saw the need for a less expensive way for families to tell their loved one’s life story. Robert and Pat Smith were the owners and creators of a company that produced, among other items, Harmon Homes, a national real estate magazine. Their marketing expertise is why they were sought out to be part of the team. Chris Jones is the design technician and site programmer, with over 20 years experience in the business.

As of this post, ObitsOnline.Net is ‘Coming Soon’. Will update..

Towel Stealing – A Problem for Hotels

Towel Rack

NORTHBROOK, ILLINOIS, USA, July 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — When guests find comfort in a hotel room, they want to tuck everything in the bag and keep it for themselves. Guests have to behave decently especially in the case of stealing towels.
It happens with many guests and the ones having a luxury stay will definitely perform such acts. It is entirely wrong because guests pay for the room to have a cozy and comfortable stay but are not entitled to the hotel stuff. From large hotel chains to 2-star hotels all have reported about the theft of stealing towels, bed sheets, bathrobes, hangers, mattress covers, and everything they find that is not fastened down in the room.
