During this time, he produced a daily radio show with an estimated audience of more than 1 million listeners as well as producing several TV programs. A unique opportunity was presented to him to purchase a television license. Within six short months he built an Independent 24 hour per day Television Station as well as building the first of its kind Digital Film and Video Production Company with the latter being set apart as a Sony Broadcast of America Premier Facility. He won contracts to produce and broadcast Professional Indoor Soccer Team Games as part of the channel line up as well as to produce and air several live concerts. Two notably being Pat Boone and Larnelle Harris. He was the host of two daily television shows, a radio program and opened an accredited college and was approached to be a consultant to help develop a revolutionary television network designed to bring accredited education into the homes of America by means of television. Today we see this same concept being implemented within our Public Education System in High Schools as well as Colleges and Universities today only now by means of the Internet.
During the late 80’s and into the early 90’s Mr. Kelso made a decision to diversify into the construction industry becoming a successful builder in South Florida while at the same time volunteering in a Church Plant being undertaken by his brother, The Reverend Brian Kelso.
As technology and the Internet began to rise as a prominent industry with immense opportunities, he partnered with other visionaries to develop and market an International Internet Acceleration Software Company while also developing a National ISP with Software clients around the World. As the world moved into the new Centennial, he was asked to serve on a Federal Advisory Council in the arena of Business development. This Federal Advisory Council led him to an appointment to a Presidential Commission, by then President George W. Bush, headed by House Majority Whip, Tom Delay of Texas.
In 2009 he began work on a new concept of Interactive, Artificial Intelligence to impact the shopping experience of consumers. This led to the development of a unique retail consumer experience of interacting with a “digital assistant” to assist shoppers with their shopping needs reducing the staffing needs of sales associates with real to life Hologram Sales Associates.
During this time and while in semi-retirement, he contracted Meniere Syndrome and was completely disabled for 2 ½ years as a result. He learned one of the side effects of Meniere’s was loss of hearing and he began learning about hearing aids.
