It's been said, "If a man at 20 yrs old see's life the same as he did 20 years ago, he has wasted 20 years of his life." Things change, people change, and time changes by the second. 20 years ago I received a pay check to rock the mic in radio, 20 years later, I have no desire to even visit a radio station.
On the weekend of November 14, 2008, I spent my weekend training with Marice Tobias for promo/trailer, and it was nothing like I expected... in fact... it was a life changing experience. During that weekend I discovered, to tell a story.... you must first become part of it. There have been times when ZUREK has been dead on, and other times when "Rick Party" just didn't get it. When you live your life in character, sometimes you lose who you really are.
I almost lost someone...
My car radio stopped working a year ago, and I never bothered to fix it. The sound of nature pressing against my windshield has been music to my ears, and it has never sounded as good as it does today. For the past year, I've noticed many things when I drive... things that have always been there, but you just don't notice when the true sound of music is not playing. While listening to this beautiful music I have also slowly re-discovered ZUREK, and as the spotlight has dimmed on "Rick Party," it was now time for the rightful owner to rock his own mic (crowd silent), and to make it official, a dear friend agreed and Marice Tobias said, "I love it! So much more distinctive and mysterious, which is sooo you. And, it's an iconic name for the future."
So without further ado, I introduce you to me.... ZUREK (my real name), and Rick Party has officially left the building (crowd cheers and follows him OUT the door.)
