The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,but in having new eyes”

Nearly eight months have passed since we discussed – The Last.

Including – the discovery of Stevie Nicks, Adam Corolla, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Pepper.

Among others.

At times it’s seeing talent – with NEW eyes.

Rick is now a Life Skills Coach with The Washington Nationals.

The 1991 PGA Championship.  Eventual winner (and 9th alternate) PGA rookie John Daly drove all night from Memphis to play a course he’d never seen – with a caddie he’d never met.

This week, Dan Vallie’s annual Radio Talent Institute gathers in Georgia under the tutelage of radio pro John Dimick – beating the drum

Days filled with ‘finds’ in all aspects of media – with young, passionate talent.

Remember – The Biebs was discovered – on You Tube.

It’s – Out There!
