Weekends

Hey, I’m Pamela J, nice to meet you. I come from more of a music background than radio, but worked for local stations 99.3 KWAY in Waverly and 89.1 KWOF in Cedar Rapids, on-air and in sales.

The Slippery Slope

I’ve officially started doing things I said I would never do.  My dog now has clothing.  Not 1 sweater…. but 2.  She’s a DOG and doesn’t NEED clothing, but they were cute and if I waited until it really WAS cold, then maybe they wouldn’t have her size.  Don’t worry… I’m rolling my eyes at…read more »

Most Wonderful time of the Year !!

I admit… I love fall !!  Not the “pumpkin-spice” invasion of everything, (toilet paper will probably be next) but FALL.  Chilly mornings, baggy flannel shirts that hide the weight I meant to lose over the summer, chili, football and pulling my favorite scarves out of the back of the closet.  Fall festivals?  Yes, please !!…read more »
