So what’s up with KFR? First the regular scheduled “Thursdays at KayakFishingRadio” is not changing. It will still be on every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. eastern (standard or daylight, I can’t figure it out). You can find the upcoming and podcast shows at www.blogtalkradio.com/kayakfishingradio and yes I know the KFR dot com website is confusing and I’m working on that. The format will remain the same with yours truly hosting and a general roundtable discussion will folks who call-in and those in the chat room of what’s going on in the world of kayak fishing. I’ll continue to have “special” guests join us and I am talking to some ‘interesting’ people that I’d like to have on, but we’ll keep those a secret for the time being.
Changes - Rob “ABadBackcast” DeVore the host of what was the KFR “late show” has moved to a new time slot. Seriously, if you haven’t met us, we can all use the beauty sleep and late-night Thursday was beginning to be a chore for poor Rob. Anyway, he (Rob) will continue to host in a new time slot at 8:00 p.m. eastern (not again) on Tuesday evenings. His new show “ ABadBackcast LIVE” will be Rob and his ramblings on kayak fishing and probably something about Malibu… I digress. I’m going to let the new hosts tell you more about what they have planned in developing their broadcasts.
New – Isaac “the_Nothing” Miller has blasted off in the new Tuesday time of 7:00 p.m. PACIFIC, 10:00 p.m. eastern with “KayakFishingRadio – West”. Imagine this a west-coast based show about kayak fishing that is hosted by an accomplished WEST COAST ANGLER! I saw and heard from folks that the original late show that was designed to engage our west coast brothers and sisters of yak angling was, in fact, really Florida centric. I’m quite sure we have fixed that and Isaac has stepped up to the plate and started off with a hit! Again, I’ll let Isaac discuss his plans for the future of the West show.
Future – I think it’s important to keep things fresh to keep people’s attention. I have talked to lots of listeners and folks involved with Paddle sports and Fishing, and I am hearing important things that KFR listeners should hear in the upcoming programming. For instance, as great as the fishing in Florida is, not everyone lives or fishes there. Look for increased programming highlighting different regions and hosted by regional kayak anglers. Also, I have heard that you can catch fish in freshwater! Expect to hear more about Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Catfish and Bream fishing. Those are just a couple of things I am working to improve on KayakFishingRadio and you should hear it as soon as last Tuesday with Isaac joining the crew; listen-up for new stuff next week!
That’s about it in a few hundred words and I want listeners to know that it’s not all. I’m open to suggestions about the programming, the lineups, the times, etc.. The hosts of KFR and myself want to get out on the water and fish with every listener and I want to hear more from listeners about what they’re doing on the water and where they’re doing it. The best thing about fishing and kayak-fishing is sharing the experience with others and if I can’t be there, I like hearing about all the details! That’s it for now tune-in sometime or download a podcast for some talk about kayak-fishing! Tight-Lines!
