Memories

Catchy Jingles
I saw a photo this morning that showed it was snowing up at Showdown Ski area. And because my dad was on the radio when I was a kid, I seem to remember a few of the catchier jingles. Showdowns went something like "Get up, get out, theses snow down at Showdown"...

If you weren't tuned in this morning, you missed quite a bit.
We shared our memories of the morning of the 9/11 attacks while we were on the air on that fateful morning.
We also took our first 5 qualifiers for our trip to Jamaica. If you'd like to get signed up, stop by the Stadium Club in t…
Eleven Years On Facebook
I like the "memories" that pop up on my Facebook page each day. But yesterday, FB reminded me that I've been on it for eleven years!
So, now I'm wondering how much time I've wasted staring at it.

Take More Pictures
I got "tagged" this morning about taking more pictures of your significant other. Which I need to do. But also, I just need to have to take more pictures of everything.

My Favorite Bike
Thanks to a post by Jay Burns on Facebook this morning, showing an old bike. it jolted my memory of my old "Aerobee Stingray".

Radio is a business where you meet a lot of people and I'm thinking back today on many of the really nice people that I've had the pleasure of meeting since I started on the air, here, in 1988.

As I sit and try to think about the most important aspects, events and people that I've crossed paths with working here for 30 years, it's hard to give you the best of each, but I'll give you some of them.

First Bike
I was leaving Walmart yesterday at the same time as a young family who had just bought their young daughter her first bike. She was about 4 years old and sitting atop a gorgeous new bike, complete with handlebar tassels and training wheels...
Kool Aid Stuff
I was just sitting in the studio talking to Paul about Kool Aid.  I'm curious if people still buy Kool Aid and add an ENTIRE cup of sugar like we did growing up. I don't even know when I last bought or made it at my house.
I had a friend in high school that had a 7 minute speech on how…
Homemade is Best….
My favorite Summer treat by far is homemade ice cream.  We always had it a couple times each summer.  Sometimes, if you got the first bowl you could taste the rock salt that crept into the lid.  I'm not sure if people even make it anymore because of the work involved but it was t…
