Hello. I’m finally finished.
Welcome to the new www.kmryradio.com!
You can actually stop reading now.
Although if you do, you’ll miss the part where I admit I’m not ready to be finished with the new KMRY web site. And that I’ll never be completely happy with the way it looks. And that there are plenty of features that are still on the way because, even after a year, I didn’t finish all of the stuff I wanted to have ready when it came time to launch this new site.
I remember George Lucas once said about the Star Wars movies: “Great movies are never finished…they’re only abandoned.” Many ‘new’ web sites look great for a while then seem to be forgotten. Much of that is because good web sites still require a lot of technical know-how or knowing a geek.
In fact, to make some of the more simple changes to the previous KMRY site took a phone call (or three) and a few days to wait for that change to be made by a computer guru. With this site, we have begun to claw our way from that trap with this very site.
So much of what makes this new site cool is the stuff you don’t see. For example, you will probably never see the single, lonely button we use to change the entire look and feel of this site in a few seconds. Yes…seconds. :) You’ll never see the site which lives and breathes inside this site and automatically keep everything neat and easy to find. We like knowing that a radio station full of non-programmers can pull off some pretty technical (and neat) tricks without knowing a thing about computer programming because those things are now built-in and ready when we are to unleash them.
My inner geek hopes you appreciate all of the mechanisms we built into this new web site to make it so much easier to maintain over time. The ‘average Joe’ in me hopes you never have to care about any of that and that you simply enjoy using what’s here now and everything we have planned for the next several weeks, months and years to come.
