I have always been a huge fan of new technology. It probably began when I was a child and thought the switch in our house from a rotary desk phone to one of those fancy slimline phones that hang on the wall was the coolest thing ever.

Later, my family switched from a black and white TV to a color TV. OMG, what a difference. I couldn't wait to see what would come next.

Well, technology sure has been like a runaway train in my lifetime. I can't even begin to explain the changes from the day I stepped into a radio station in 1973, to what it looks like today. Never did I think we would advance so far, but here we are.

From a corded rotary phone to a hand-held mobile phone that basically gives you the world in your palm. It would be mind-boggling if, back then, we were able to see what the future would bring forth.

Just think about the ways you can listen to The Whale. From a transistor radio to a boom box to a kick-ass home stereo system to an app on your phone, listening online, and now on devices like Alexa.

So much has changed, I wonder as I get older, will I say enough is enough? There are still people who balk at owning a computer, and that's OK. Whatever floats your boat, right?

As for me, I don't think I'll ever shut down to advancing technology. It's all still fun for me to tinker with, as long as my fading mind can figure out how to make it work.
