For years I have been trying to get things together to expand Parrot Earth, yet again. It began as a simple blog and then grew into a website with links to merchandise, product/movie reviews and links to national and international parrot events.
In this day and age it is important to keep up with the times and as much as I necessarily don’t like it, technology is the wave of communication and getting knowledge out there. As a kid I loved magazines and radio broadcasts, so I thought, “why not merge the two?”. Then the idea for From The Perch – Aviculture Today (click here for the about page) came from. I had done some work with Jason here on Parrot Earth blog and I immediately thought he would be a perfect choice. We have some things in common, but we are totally opposite personalities and to be honest, that’s what makes shows work. The listener needs to be able to related to someone involved in the broadcast.
I am not the person who keeps secrets well, and it’s been a struggle not to let the cat out of the bag. However, I managed. Especially after a couple of cocktails at our favorite watering hole, I wanted to let so many people in on it. But, I knew it would need to be a splash entrance.
Jason nor myself CLAIM TO BE EXPERTS. From The Perch is about friends and colleagues in the avian community, sitting around, sharing ideas and discussion topics. In no way does it substitute for good old-fashioned research, but hopefully our listeners can learn something along with being entertained by everyone involved. Every episode will have people interviewed and we hope that will bring the newest ideas, topics and education in a new and exciting media medium. Click here and “like” the FB page. (The sound may be a little off here and there, but we are still mastering the equipment and format).
For episode one we had special guest, Lara Joseph in studio. She is an internationally renowned trainer and an overall wonderful person. Anyone who can train pigs, goldfish, parrots etc, is okay in my book. For more information about Lara, click here!!
We look forward to many more shows and many more guests! Thanks for your support …
and now I can say thanks for reading and thanks for listening.
