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).
Dick’s Bird Brings Excitement to the Cat Country Studios
I was happy to see Dick's bird today because when you see Dick's bird, it means warmer temperatures have arrived. Dick's bird does not like to come out when it's cold.
Any Big Snows Left Before Spring?
Any big snows left before spring? My prediction is we see another couple of snowy days, but no accumulation above an inch for either. If I'm wrong, I won't feel bad. There are many who go to school for this sort of thing and get it wrong all the time (except for Bob McGuire of course).
Good Samaritans in Montana
I won't say the name of the restaurant, because I don't want to get the guy in trouble, but on Sunday, I went to meet some family for dinner. About 10 seconds after I arrived I realized that I had left my wallet at home.
Granger Smith Coming to Billings
Granger Smith puts on a great show and we're excited to see him back at the Pub Station. The Pub Station is a cool concert venue, but it's not huge, so don't wait to get your tickets. They officially go on sale Friday, with a special pre-sale happening for Pub Station Facebook fans
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 …
