Heard late Friday from my friends attending the EMA Awards that I did not receive either Radio Manager of the Year or Best Radio Show. Win some, lose some. It was nice to be in the finals.
I had sent the following note to my friends if I had won:
"John wishes he could be here this evening…but he’s tied up with business in Pennsylvania...he said, he’s very honored...and to quote one of his favorites, Frank Sinatra:
“When I was thirty-five
It was a very good year”
It was a very good year for radio awards...tonight’s EMA(s) [plural if I won manager of the year] and the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award!
“The Best is yet to come”
I think I'll reference ol' Blue Eyes in December.
