I noticed there were 800 hits on my blog yesterday, the same day "The DSC" got fired. Yes, Dave, Shelly, Chainsaw, plus me, Boyer and Emily got fired from our long time radio job. I've been on the show for 15 of the 20 years it's been together. I'm sure the bulk of the hits were mostly from DSC Listeners looking for information and trying to find out what happened and what the heck is going on. So I want to share some things with all of you.
Every piece of art you see on this page is for sale, except for the one on top on this page, which Chainsaw purchased. Each one is an original created by me. Also, each of the greeting cards on the previous post is for sale for $5.00 each. Feel free to email me with any questions about prices at NReeba@aol.com. Serious inquiries only please. Otherwise, I welcome your comments after this post.
I added links at the bottom of the page where you can read what people are writing about us and fan pages for you to connect with other listeners.
I gained about 125 new "friends" on Face Book and Twitter today! Thank you for that and welcome! I'm happy to tell you anything I can, which isn't much, sorry to say. Yes, I'm unemployed. No, I don't have any severance pay this time and still no benefits. No, I don't have anyone to support me. No, I don't have anything else lined up. Yes, I'm doing well. I plan to file for unemployment this time, write a shiny, new resume and I have someone making a demo tape for me. No idea what will happen or where I will end up. But I know God has a plan for me.
I am remaining positive and that's what I need from each of you. Please think only positive thoughts for me. I know a lot of you are angry, sad, hurt, depressed, and unhappy - I have been reading your posts all day. I am trying to respond to as many as I can. I am overwhelmed by your love, support and loyalty. Your caring has given me a full heart and brought tears of joy to my eyes.
You are the best listeners/fans/friends anyone could ever hope to have and I appreciate each one of you. Thank you for reaching out to me and showing me so much love. I will miss making you laugh every day. ~Ruthie~ xoxo
(As of Thursday night, I have received 3600 hits on my blog since I got fired, more than 600 new friends on Facebook and 400 new followers on Twitter! You guys are the best!)
I would give a kidney for you to come back, let me know if that helps! Maybe even a portion of my liver! That grows back, right? ZB
Ruthie I'm so sorry that you and the gang are gone (for now, hopefully). Your story is so inspirational - both from the recovery side and the "budding artist" side. I thought of you this weekend while at Dick Blick's. I already miss your laugh :) Please hurry back... -FS
What a sad awakening this morning! What happened to the DSC? Are you going to pop up elsewhere? Hope you are good! -APR
Ruthie, you know you are so loved, women want to be with you, guys want to be with you, so flexible, we like that about you! You do know this big ass window just opened even if it breaks our heart that the DSC door was closed. peace! –CO
Love you Ruthie! Your strength and positive attitude is what gives a lot of people inspiration to overcome what Life throws at them. You are a role model. Muah...
start selling all that art ruthie!!!! do any of the gang... DSC, emilito, boyer... have a plan, or did they all retire with this action... if there is a plan to work somewhere else, lets hope they bring you too!!!!! good luck, god does have a plan!! -MM
I am sad that there is no DSC !!!
Been a fan since the Dawn Patrol! What am I going to do now? What are you going to do? The show was like family! Missing all of you!! -RH
Phoenix.. reborn to something fresh and good... I'm optimistic –QTJ
If you haven't already, I've got a book for you ... LIFE IS A VERB: 37 days to Wake Up, Be Mindful and Live Intentionally (author: Patti Digh) ... let me know if you have it or not, and if NOT, I will see that you get one ASAP. Love you -- Davi
Oh Ruthie.....this is awful! There are stations that can match the KGB music but NONE that came close to the DSC...keep us posted. I have nothing but positive thoughts for you!! -JKP
Ditto, Ditto...Just got out of my car and was sooo saddened by no DSC and Ruth 66. Well, when one door closes, another one opens....Much love and prayers to you. -SR
Will follow you anywhere Ruthie and the rest of the DSC gang! Love to you all!! -CA
Sending you lots of love and good thoughts, Ruthie. Selfishly hoping you guys will all land on another station and rise again. Mornings just aren't the same without you guys!! –PJ
Dear Nina, I'm hard to shock but the departure of the DSC is shocking. Is the earth also spinning backwards? I heard via SDRadio.net and immediately came here to FB to find out the real deal. Your sunny attitude is an inspiration. Yes, you are going to be just fine. You've been through the worst of it already, haven't you? I guess it was the dress rerehearsal. It's a privilege to know you and what a pleasure it was working with you all those years ago.
Attention folks: this woman is a FANTASTIC employee, co-worker, and energy booster to the people around her. Snap her up! -GF
I can't believe it! You guys will surely be missed...until you return somewhere else! No one can replace the DSC (and you). I looked forward to tuning in each morning. So sad! The best of luck to you in your job search. -AH
You are extremely talented and you will be okay! How about giving "Private lessons" to people that need help with Public Speaking? I am sending you "Good Vibes"! –PK
Ruthie you have more than 125 new friends, you have friends all around the world. And we all wish you the best and know we will be hearing more from you. Give Dave, Shelley and Chainsaw our best wishes also.
The DSC may be gone for now, but we still have you on FB and your cool web site. And we will miss Voice in the Head too. -SL
Ruthie, I was absolutely heartbroken this morning when I heard you and all my friends on the DSC were gone from KGB. I even missed Boyer!! Come back to us! TMD
Was laid off in Oct last year... I need you and DSC to keep me sane and smiling every morning... I hope I will find you on a San Diego station soon. -CM
My coffee tasted differently without the DSC. :( -LFM
San Diego is a town in mourning....don't know what you've lost til it's gone. -DSR
There were hundreds of messages like this all over FaceBook and Twitter; many to me personally. I did not include the angry ones or the ones which criticized my former employer. The point of this post is to show you the love I've been getting. I wanted to show you why I've been so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and caring from listeners, fans and friends. It helped more than you will know. On days where I might have trouble staying positive, I will return to this page and my spirit will feel lighter again.
