He and I had worked together off and on for more than a decade at WBEZ. While I hadn't been contributing to the radio station anymore, I thought it was a perfect way to get back into the world of blogging for an audience I adore.&nbsp;After 18 months of five-day-a-week posts, I've decided that it's time for a change. I'll be taking the summer off, recharging a bit, and will come back after Labor Day with a completely overhauled&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stevedolinsky.com/" style="color: rgb(2, 122, 198); text-decoration: none;">stevedolinsky.com</a>&nbsp;website.&nbsp;I want to thank Justin, Steve Edwards and Torey Malatia for once again believing in my work, and giving me this great forum for writing, podcasting, video sharing and schmoozing about food and drink.</p><p>I hope this isn't the end of my relationship with WBEZ - I always consider them family - and would love to return occasionally in some capacity. But for now, I want to thank all of you for reading, re-tweeting and commenting on my blog posts these past 18 months. I'll still be <a href="http://twitter.com/#%21/stevedolinsky">tweeting</a> about my eating experiences this summer, and you can always choose to <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Steve-Dolinsky/119433184771285">"like" me on Facebook</a>, to follow my exploits; as for my blog, I hope to see you after Sept. 6 over at my new address.</p><p>Cheers,</p><p>Steve</p><p>&nbsp;</p></p> Thu, 30 Jun 2011 11:00:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/blog/steve-dolinsky/2011-06-30/so-longfor-now-88494 DJ Series: DJ Jesse de la Pena gets into the public radio game http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-03-25/dj-series-dj-jesse-de-la-pena-gets-public-radio-game-84230 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/segment/photo/2011-March/2011-03-24/jesse de la pena.jpg" alt="" /><p><p><a href="http://www.jessedelapena.com/" target="_blank">Jesse De La Pena</a> has been a fixture on Chicago&rsquo;s DJ scene since the '80s.
