Did you know that originally this blog was supposed to be a radio program? Babushka's Baile was to be on blogtalk radio... but then BB realized she needed someone to talk to, guests, listeners. Not that Babushka couldn't talk all by herself for at least 30 minutes, Cubana al fin, but it's more fun with others. So the show was put on the back burner for awhile, 'till there was more of an audience. That back burner turned into a slowcooker; it took almost 5 years to come full circle. And once again, it was thanks to Hispanicize that it came to be.
The true start of Babushka's aventuras were thanks to that fateful time BB approached Maria de los Angeles during a Travel Blogger panel in the 2012 Hispanicize. Because it was asked, the chance taken, the offer to be part of the American Latino Heritage Fund Roadtrip was made. And Babushka's never looked back.
In 2015, another panel was given, tambien en HIspanicize, and this one was on podcasting. The panel was fascinating, and here was where, Felix Montelara, The Potential Millionaire, became special in Babushka's vida. Aqui lo bautize, The Preacher of Podcasting, porque even as an audience member, Felix was especially informative and entertaining. The memory of BB's original vision returned, pero honestly, it was a bit intimidating this new, technologically heavy world, so although we spoke briefly on the vision, the show estaria cocinanco otro año.
Come 2016, another panel on podcasting at Hispanicize, no denying las ganas, y cuando Felix approached BB, remembering her from the prior year and asking if she had started her broadcast yet, it was taken as a sign. The audience and following had been made, there were guests who could be invited, it was time to do the show.
"BB's Blab 'Bout 'Buelos",the program where Grandparents Gloat and Grandchildren Remember. A place where we never tire of hearing how precious and precocious son los nietos, and also how precious and dear were your abuelos. Our first show was on Sunday, and since the S Sisters continue to bless BB, guess who was the first guest? None other than Mr. Felix Montelara himself!!
Just as it had happened w/My Capitan Maria, paso con Felix. By Babushka taking the initiative of approaching them, she ended up working with them. BB not follow a dream? JU SO FONII!!! Remember this Beautifuls, take that chance, tu nunca sabes...
Hope to see y'all on the next broadcast.
Babushka Besos a todos. Cuidensen.
