TGIF: Company hosts Beer Cart Fridays

This final note today — my last as host of this radio program*. Because I’ve found a way, way better place to work.

From now on you can reach me, care of Advanced Medical, they’re down in Port Orange, Fla. And yes, it may sound strange to toss a promising young radio career for the unknown, but my new boss — CEO Jennifer Fuicelli — has a policy which honestly is just…awesome: Beer Cart Fridays.

Crackin’ open a cold one, on the company’s dime and on company time. Corporate culture before profits, the boss says.

APM, you listening?
