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!
This week, a couple co-workers have complimented me on my daily blog-posts by saying things like "nice blog." While I appreciate the compliments, it also hoists up a big red flag, because I was unaware that anyone in the company was actually reading my blog.
Usually I just sort of spit out some random thoughts in a panic at the last possible moment to avoid being put on the company's "Did Not Update Blog In The Past 24 Hours" list. Yes, this actually exists.
But people are reading it too? Okay, game change time. Starting now, I am going to attempt to give you what is expected of us in the radio business, the kind of stuff that we think people really want to read in blogs. Ready? Okay, here we go:
Did you hear about the crazy thing the Kardashian's did? (See how I added that apostrophe? All good blog posts have a few of those thrown in!) Yeah, they really did it this time! I guess one of them is married to a rapper or something, and he said something that really made a lot of people mad! And they sure do love to flaunt their bikini bod's, (And another one!) don't they? Yeah, they've gone too far this time! But hey, YOLO, right??? Twerking! Twerking! Breaking Bad! Hashtag!
Okay, that's just a first try, but I think it's a good, solid effort. I hope you like my new blog direction!
