If you follow what I do as an artist in Q*Ball and Return To Earth, and as the owner of an independent record label, you probably know that I also work in the wacky world of morning radio as a producer on the nationally syndicated Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.Â Radio has been a passion since high school and has put bread on the table for almost two decades.
Two years ago, the production studio in the picture above didn’t exist.Â Soon after Superstorm Sandy destroyed my home studio on Staten Island, my work studio in NYC was demolished to make way for the current on-air studio our morning show is broadcast from every weekday.Â I was banished to a studio inside our company’s employee kitchen until my new studio was built.Â For a little while, I was truly a man without a home.Â No matter where I sat, it was never really in my own chair.Â But at least I was real close to the plastic utensils and the vending machines.
A lot has changed in two years, and – as of late – I find myself settling into a groove as a writer and producer on the show, doing more podcasts, more voice work.Â Having more fun.Â That’s why I make music.Â That’s why I get out of bed and head to that production studio every weekday.Â It’s work all the time, but it’s fun a lot of the time too.Â And it’s when I’m having fun that I do my best work.Â More fun coming soon….Â Â xo -Ron
On October 29th, 2012, Tropical Storm Sandy sent a tidal wave to my home in New York City. The entire house was flooded, my music production studio and home office were destroyed, along with most everything inside of it – all CDs and merchandise from Q*BALL, RETURN TO EARTH, THE HEAD SET; all my gear, my memorabilia, my furniture, my history. It’s all gone.
I am still in business, and all our artists’ music is still available digitally thru iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital retail outlets. I am documenting the experience as I attempt to rebuild, relocate, and refocus my life, no less the focus of my business and my musical endeavors.
It’s all up on The Bald Freak Blog. I hope you will read about my journey.
And I hope you continue to take the journey with me….hurricane, Q*Ball, Return To Earth, Sandy, The Head Set, tropical storm
