Pennsif’s Progress – As Steve said, “Do one thing well”

Do not try to do everything. Do one thing well. - Steve Jobs

We have spent the last couple of days moving two of our daughters to start at their new universities.

These are big days. These are important life points. These are times that are a-changing.

Long drivings mean long thinkings.

Right now I am sure I have so many pies, in so many ovens, with so many fingers in them, that none of them are tasting quite as good as they might.

And I am in danger of falling asleep at the wheel.

I cannot do everything that I would like to on steem. I need to focus. I need to do one thing well.

Or at least cut down a bit.

I know what makes the most difference – that is my work with A Dollar A Day.

I know what makes the least.

So I will no longer be broadcasting The Alternative Lifestyle Show on Fridays.

I will pick up the best bits of that and merge them into my longer and stronger Thursday show that currently runs with the moniker of Here Comes The News. But that might change.

With all the guests I have on my radio shows they take many, many hours to organise and put together.

So dropping one will free me a good chunk of time to concentrate more on A Dollar A Day. That can only be for the better.

Thank you everyone that has been part of The Alternative Lifestyle Show – both listeners and guests.

Since the show started in January I have had well over a hundred great guests on the show, who have given some extremely interesting interviews. I will miss you all. But not too far. Just move back one day and you can be on the Thursday show.

Thank you and good night.

My Life in 8 Songs – Thursday 14 June – with @darrenclaxton, @d-vine & @zipporah

https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/my-life-in-8-songs-454×278.jpg
This week’s My Life in 8 Songs has a little twist.
All three guests are musicians who write their own songs. So instead of 8 songs from the big wide musical world they are choosing 8 of their own songs.
The twist doesn’t end there. Instead of telling their whole life story each guest will be taking us through their musical journey from first discovery through learning their skills, developing their talent, growing their following to their current situation.
Darren Claxton @darrenclaxton from the UK is in the acoustic indie folk vein, D-Vine / ELLi @d-vine from Germany is more electronic and dance, and Zippy Lomax @zipporah from USA spans acoustic and electronic genres.

The shows airs from 8pm – 11pm UTC on Thursday on MSP Waves Radio.

Darren Claxton joined steem in March this year.

He is from Derbyshire in the UK.

Darren Claxton is a songwriter, musician and producer of his own music. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’.

Most of all, it is his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.


@d-vine

ELLi @d-vine is a female audio engineer, producer and DJ, currently located in Germany.

Since arriving on steem last November ELLi has been actively involved in many areas of the steem music scene including the Steem Music Alliance and the Steemit Music League Challenge. She has also regularly put out new tracks on DSound.

ELLi started in the underground electronic scene in Europe in 1993. She made her professional debut in Germany in 1998, and her first release on the label Risk Industrees in 1999. In 2015 she began to focus more on production and in 2017 got her certification as an audio engineer.


@zipporah

Zippy joined the steem platform in January.

She is based in Portland, Oregon in the USA.

As well being a musician and songstress, Zippy is a photographer, writer and illustrator. In her steemit profile she describes herself as “seeing with heart – listening with eyes – founder of The Kindness Collective”.



I have already got some really interesting steemians lined up for forthcoming shows. But I am still looking for more guests.
