It was a great day at Cowessess Gas and Grocery yesterday for Customer Appreciation Day. It was as busy as one might expect, considering they were offering free burgers and dogs, not to mention gas at $114.9! Those pumps were full all day long!
I got a chance to see my old friends Brad and Fabian, who work out there and make sure 620 CKRM is blaring in the background everyday!
I also got a chance to run into some long time listeners who dropped by to make sure they let me know how much they enjoy the station. One couple, Ray and Sharon Agecoutay, even had to get a photo of the three of us, while the Wingerters said they have their radio glued to 620 CKRM. It’s always nice to hear that, but it doesn’t always happen that way.
When we were broadcasting from the Brier a couple of months ago, some ladies walked by our broadcast location. One lady stopped and told me she listens all the time and loves the morning show and the Flea Market. While they were walking away I heard one of the other ladies say, “I can’t stand that guy!” Hey, you can’t please ’em all! That’s my personality for you. People either love me or they hate me. There doesn’t seem to be any “in-between.” I have no problem with that, whatsoever.
Henry Ford once said that although he didn’t know the surest way to succeed, he did know the surest way to fail was to try to please everyone!
