• As many of you noticed, I wasn’t on air yesterday (for those that didn’t notice – thanks a lot.). Last week I made an appointment to see a chiro that I had been putting off for probably, a year. As I get older, I notice that parts of my body that were once strong and straight, are less than that and will need regular maintenance. Like a car over 75K miles, it needs work that it didn’t before that… Oil changes more frequently and, maybe, a synthetic blend to keep the pistons clean and running smoothly. Radiator flushes and fills. Transmission flushes and fills. Tune-up, etc.

  • With the many drawbacks of social media, there are things that work REALLY well for interaction with you, the listeners. Besides the Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc., we also have the ability to connect immediately via instant messengers. Before this, the good ol' phone number was listeners way to talk to the DJ. In my years in radio, I've found that we are the friend you reach out to at just the moment you need someone. When no else is available, we become the bartender, the confidant, the psychologist, the sound board for them to discuss an issue they have and can't get past. We also become part of the family. When we are live and local, we are heard on the radio when you get ready in the morning and get the kids ready for school. Everyone is listening so you get to know us, the people behind the mic. The personality that welcomes you into our world.

  • Go ahead. Call me names... (under your breath please.) I have just never liked hot weather. Even as a kid, if it was really hot, like over 85 (yes, that is too hot for me), it's just miserable. I was a very fit kid. Not like now.... But heat just never appealed to me. I've always said, you can only do so much to cool down when it's hot. Take off all your clothes to cool down, and you are still hot. However, when it's really cold, you add more layers and eventually, you can get warm.

  • This Brit-American band came out of nowhere When Mick Jones left his gig with Spooky Tooth, he was looking for more control over decisions regarding creativity.

    S.E. Hinton published the book "The Outsiders". A view of teenage life from a teenage girl. She had a keen sense of the time, living it, but with some artistic expression, of course.

  • Hard to pick out just 5, but, here we go!
    I’ll have to do this by memory of when each one hit me. Going back to the earliest memories of music, for me, defines what started the influence of music. Each artist or album that I got into, most likely came from something the main influential album lead me towards.
