It kinda-sorta sounded like a good idea. We tried to go all day Sunday without any computers, ipods or other similar electronics.
8:00am The kids cover everything electric, including light switches, the microwave and the refrigerator with "violation" notices. We like that they were get into the spirit of the thing, but explain that we weren't becoming Amish, growing beards or putting on bonnets.
10:00 Jackson and I wash the cars. No electronics needed. Then I caught him reading a book!
1:00 Lauren and I went ice skating. Everybody happy so far, and the world hasn't ended.
6:30 After dinner. the complaining starts. "I'm bored. This is dumb."
8:00 The screaming begins. "You're ruining my life! My friends now think you're weird! Are you happy now?"
8:30 Screaming at full-throttle. Lisa is the first to cave. "Should we let her watch her iPod before bed?"
8:45 I cave. The screaming ends. Life returns to normal.
Okay, so we didn't make it, but I think we all learned a valuable lesson that day. That Lisa and I have no backbone!
I LOVE being on the radio, and it's all I ever wanted to do since I was a kid! So here I am living my dream, playing the music that I love! I'm married with 2 great kids. My son Jackson is 13 and my daughter Lauren is 10, and we're a tight little family unit! We go for walks and bike rides together, and we love to go for weekend trips. At our house, every Friday night is "Pizza and Star Trek Night" when we watch TV and have pizza delivered! I think everybody has one geeky obsession, and mine is the space program! No, I'm not a real astronaut, but I like to read about them , and have met most of my heroes, the US astronauts from the 60's and 70's.
I've worked in radio for 25 years, and have loved every minute of it! My wife's name is Lisa and we have two kids, ages 10 and 13. I'll be telling you a lot more about them on my show! We love to go for bike rides and weekend trips. We've gotten our kids hooked on old TV shows like "The Brady Bunch," "Star Trek," and "Batman," and every Friday night we have a pizza delivered and watch a great old show! I love to play hockey, and I read a lot about the US space program! Big fan of the 60's and 70's era astronauts! It was either astronaut or deejay for me, and, well, here I am!
