Andy West

I am originally from Los Angeles but grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In between I spent 2 years of my childhood in Montana. One in Great Falls and the other in Havre. My mom married a Canadian when I was 9 and we moved to Canada. Because the winters in Edmonton are too damn cold I moved back to California once I was 21. My radio career has taken me to Casa Grande, AZ, Palm Springs, Fresno, CA, San Luis Obispo, CA and back to Edmonton which is a great city that thanks to global warming isn’t quite as cold as it used to be but colder than I can handle. So I took a position here with Cat Country 102.9 here in Billings where the winters are much milder. In my free time I play poker, basketball and flag football. My claim to fame is that my wife Monica is sisters with the former Miss El Salvador from 1996 who came in sixth in that years’ Miss Universe competition. Of course I think my wife is prettier than her sister! I also have a 12 year-old daughter named Noel who is in Junior High and was the 5th grade champion high jumper.

The Least Romantic Things I’ve Ever Said Or Done

Well unfortunately my wife has endured the brunt of my insensitivity so let's start there. I met her in 1994 and on just our 3rd date I took her to a comedy show. Because I liked her I felt I had to do something but because it was only our 3rd date I didn't want it to be too serious so I bought her a card with a large letter "E" on it with whoosh marks in behind. Get it? For Valentine's Day I got her a "quick E". I crack me up.

What Men Want For Valentine’s Day

Hats Off To CVS Pharmacies

Let me be clear, I'm not for the government telling us what vices in which we can partake. I was personally miffed when the federal government outlawed internet poker. On the other hand I think smoking bans in the workplace

If You Work Out Less You Get Stronger Faster

I know it seems counter-intuitive but I've found that more days between workouts is more effective than working out the same muscle group every other or even every third day. Our company provides us with memberships to Billings Athletic Club and I've been taking advantage.
