I was born in the southern U.S. and raised by a 21 year Marine Corps Vietnam Vet and his hard working, successful, Tennessee born bride. They set the bar pretty high for their three kids...so I decided to just walk under it and go into radio at age 16. After years of "town to town, up and down the dial", I made my way to Billings in 2005. That turned out to be the best decision I ever made. It lead to a great job, and the love of my life, my daughter, Eliana. I'm happy to be raising her in a place with a great mix of conservative family values and progressive ideas about inclusion and embracing the differences in people (provided they are not too liberal or from California).
Camping With Kids at Headwaters Country Jam
If we do this, we'll be in a tent and I'd rather use the Cat Country campsite, but if you've got some first hand experience and recommend the family area, I'd love it if you'd share your thoughts in the comments section.
You Can Tell A Lot About Someone by How They Treat Animals
A brief disclaimer before I get into this: I am not an activist, a PETA member (a critic of them in fact), or otherwise. I do not make a cake for my pet's birthday, get him a Christmas present or the like. I believe in the right to hunt and I consume animal flesh on a daily basis. In other w…
Ever Fallen Asleep At Work?
There has been one time when I fell asleep at work and it did coincide with Daylight Saving Time. I was working at a radio station in Knoxville, Tennessee and had to be at work 5 a.m. Sunday mornings. These days, the computer handles playing the songs, but that wasn't the case back then. If …
You Never Know Who’s Watching
Headed home on Broadwater yesterday I saw the cops had somebody stopped and they were driving an unmarked car. If you look closely at the photo, you can see the right rear taillight flashing blue
Mackenzie Samples #MilkCoke
This gross concoction known as #MilkCoke apparently has thousands of fans around the world. It's not always good to rush to judgement on things, so I thought I should sample to confirm...then I thought it sounded too gross, so I asked Mackenzie to do it for me.
MSU Roof Collapse Could Have Been Tragic
I've been watching various social media feeds and of course there are many Griz fans leaving some pretty funny comments about the school known for architecture and engineering, but personally I am extremely happy we're not having to report some horrible tragedy and loss of life on our airw…
Top Five Places You’re Most Likely To Wreck in Billings
I made this video a few years ago (I think in 2016), but the list seems to be standing the test of time....at least it seems that way to me. Do you agree with my list? What would you add or remove?
Top Five Things That Make Me Curse While Driving
According to an article I read today on Mirror, we swear 41 times for every 100 miles we drive. I've not metered myself, but that sounds totally possible to me. In the article, they give a list of the top things that set us off behind the wheel, but without looking at that, I can easily tell …
Ranch Dressing on Pancakes?
Today is "International Pancake Day" which reminded me of a phone call I got one time while discussing the many uses of Ranch dressing in Montana. I had people calling in to tell me they put Ranch on spaghetti, tacos, garlic bread, etc., but the one that really sticks out in my mind is pa…
CB Radio in Montana
Is there a place for CB in a modern world of smartphones? I think so. I mean, even with the latest tech, car to car communication isn't super easy and with the hands free laws, often not even legal. Of course, here in Montana, there are miles of road that don't even have basic cell serv…
What Temperature Do You Call Warm?
For me, it's short sleeves and jackets by 40, and shorts by 50...but I'm one of those "always hot" kind of people. In fact, now that everyone is gone, I have the A/C on in the studios.
Socialism in School
I'm a fan of capitalism because it's the closest thing we have to "you get what you deserve". We trade value for value. If a rancher wants to make more money, they raise more cattle....value for value. I believe that people of sound mind and body in this country have the oppor…
