It is a blog talk radio show produced by me, five-time self-published author, G. D. Grace, and it highlights upcoming writers, musicians, poets, as well as other creative individuals.
Since its premiere on September 2cnd, 2010, an array of talented individuals have stopped by and shared their remarkable journeys with loyal listeners who have taken time out of their busy schedules to tune in.
The last quarter of 2010 was an exceptional ending to a phenomenal year for me — especially since it started off with me being a guest on a blog talk radio show. My networking activities eventually led to me producing the author segment of those shows. The funny thing about it is that I had no idea that I was actually producing shows, so when the host gave me props over the air during one of them I was in awe.
So, that pretty much sums up things. My flight from the nest of that show was an amicable one — I had outgrown my purpose there, so the inevitable occurred — I started my own. The host of the show where it all began had pretty much already planted the seed in my mind about producing my own show and, viola, “A Touch of Grace” was born.
With a trail of successful shows beneath my belt I started preparing myself for 2011 by booking new guest, but the unmentionable happened. My lap top crashed. Needless to say, I was numb — especially since I had booked a couple of shows into February of 2011.
Well, instead of tucking my tail between my legs and scurrying off I utilized the public library and my aunt’s computer to stay connected. Knowing that there would be a challenge to be able to conduct all of the interviews, I decided that there was one that I could not miss and that one was the one I hosted on January 1st, 2011.
That show stretched my interviewing abilities because instead of one or two people, I was interviewing the entire cast of Andrionna L. Williams stage play “In Laws From Hell”. I was motivated to get creative and make this one happen and successfully accomplished what I set out to do, thanks to my aunt’s generosity (Thanks Sha, love you).
I must say this, if that show didn’t happen I wouldn’t be in the mental place I am right now. You see, if an entire cast can be on time for an “A Touch of Grace” interview, then why would I accept anything less.
I owe it to the faithful listeners to deliver when a date is set. While I understand that everyone’s schedule can be hectic, I cannot allow theirs to affect mine.
Path forward, any guest that has accepted an invitation to appear on “A Touch of Grace” must have the same commitment to it’s listeners as I do.
— If there has been no effort of the potential guest to establish a sound professional relationship, then this show is not suitable for you.
— If a live dialogue is not possible, then this show is not suitable for you.
— If you cannot provide the number you will be calling into the show from, then this show is not suitable for you.
— If punctuality isn’t important to you and you cannot call in 5 minutes prior to show time, then this show is not suitable for you.
In my eyes, these expectations are not unreasonable, however, I thoroughly understand that some people’s values may differ from mine. This is the main reason why I have opted to list the expectations I have so that potential guest have a clear understanding about how I roll.
As a radio personality my commitment is to the listeners.
