The Roatan Vortex Show – It Pulls You in and You Never Want to Leave!

March 5, 2010

Moving to Roatan, Honduras, was never optional for me…it was a calling. I posted a story on this experience  Roatan Vortex, there, I explained what happened. I ended it by saying that I wasn’t sure what would come next—well I have something pretty exciting to share with You.

I will be hosting, the “Roatan Vortex” radio show, broadcast live; Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, 10am until noon (Roatan Time, also known as Central Time; but we don’t do daylight savings in Honduras. You can figure it out.), each and every week on www.roatanradio.com

I want to clarify how that works before I fill you in on the highlights of the show. Roatan Radio is the brainchild of John and Barbara Morris (I’ve posted a story about them too, Passing the Torch). Roatan Radio is an on-line radio station. Which means you go to the website, www.roatanradio.com , once there, give it a few seconds to load—and you will hear the live broadcast. You can continue to do whatever else you want on your computer; surf the net (there is a convenient Google link on the home page), finish a report for your boss, visit with friends on Facebook, etc. etc., just keep Roatan Radio open (minimized is okay) while you’re on your computer.

So that’s how to tune in. Now, here is why I think you will want to. The Roatan Vortex radio show is (sorta) an extension of this blog; Life & Writing, on Roatan.

 There will be a different theme every show, including such compelling topics as;

  • I don’t live on an episode of Survivor—do you?
  • What’s for dinner? Yes, we have peanut butter.
  • Do you ever wonder what your back looks like?

I’ll get the ball rolling by giving you my point-of-view from Roatan, Honduras, and than…wait for it…I want to hear Your point-of-view, from wherever in the world you are! That’s right, the Roatan Vortex show, is a live, call-in, say your piece kind of radio show.

You will be able to contact me via skype, (request being a contact with roatanradio first), or even easier; during each broadcast I will remind you the number to call, from a regular phone (561) 283-4090, West Palm Beach number, (as long as you have a long distance plan that includes Canada and the US) there will be no charge, otherwise your regular long-distance charges will apply. You will also be able to send me messages, and emails. Details on those methods will be updated soon.

So that’s my exciting news! Be sure to tune in Monday, March 8th, for the first official broadcast of the Roatan Vortex show, with your host (me) Genevieve! My mom will be so thrilled that I’m actually using my full name.

The first show’s theme will be: Commuting to Work through the Jungle—and I don’t mean Concrete.

PS Doesn’t the word “theme” make you think of Ralphie from A Christmas Story, having to write a “theme” on what he wants for Christmas? …”You’ll shoot your eye out!”
