Studio On Fifth

Downtown Springfield, Illinois plays host to Studio on Fifth. Studio on Fifth is a mini radio broadcast center used by WMAY/WNNS/WQLZ on a rotating basis. As the name implies it's located on Fifth street. Look for it on the east side of Fifth street half way between Adams, and Monroe.

Opening the door I was greeted by on air radio personality Deb Kennedy, who graciously allowed me to photograph her at work, and ask a few questions.

I like the whole idea of having a mini-studio right downtown, it's a great idea, and a fine addition to downtown.

Hi "Prophet"!

Your blog is tremendous!! One of the best I've seen. I'll be sure to check it out from time to time. Great photos from around Spfld. I think you're an excellent writer. What do you do at *@#$%^&* ?

You should be with the SJR in some capacity!

Take care,

Thank you for your most generous comments.

SJ-R? Hmm.., I don't know that sounds like a real job.

What I do at my current place of employment involves a great deal of fly by the seat of your pants problem solving, and communication skills.

The writing I do here is a way to cope with the stress from that flying by the seat of your pants.

I've deleted the name of my employer from your comment. It's sort of a Superman vs. Kent Clark thing for now. Eventually, One of these days soon I may come out of the telephone booth, or closet without my JeromeProphet suit on, but just not yet.
