... what are the educational facilities (trade schools and colleges and universities) who relied on this as a profit center doing about it? I spent a lot of part-time hours over the years teaching students the skills I learned on the road to my career. Got paid some pretty good bucks for it, too.
A couple of those years I taught in Mike Lemmon's broadcasting courses at Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey IL. Mike ran the absolute best college radio station and educational unit I have ever encountered and with my experience there and Mike's encouragement I became a better teacher.
I only left because I had a heart attack and subsequent surgery and the 45-minute drive became too much. I left teaching in 1996 or so, and now, with all that has transpired since then in the industry, I have to wonder what an education in Broadcasting really means.
Not much, I bet. You tell me.
