As part of the “being ready for anything” that should go along with treatment for a major disease, I am making some additions to the program. The idea is to make sure that the “show
must will go on” every week, even if I am sick or unable to broadcast for some reason.
I have asked Ashley Scontriano (pronounced as you’d expect) to be available as an occasional guest or fill-in host. Ashley is a fill-in political host at KSCO and former city council candidate. But, she also runs Bone-a-Fide Dog Care, a Santa Cruz boarding facility, and that makes her perfect for Pet Radio!
Also, our friend Laura Pakis has also been “promoted” to co-host and will be doing solo fill-in duties when necessary. Laura has appeared almost weekly for the more than a year and is quite capable of doing the show without me, so having her is a big win for listeners and me alike.
I am also creating two new back-up “best of” programs that will be immediately available to broadcast when needed. One will be all Dr. Burtch because her segments are so often requested by listeners.
