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 halloween, you're likely to see people with those unusual costume contact lenses. I've seen all black, blood red, cat eyes, American flags and many more. However, did you know that they're not legal? Not without a prescription from your eye doctor! The only way to buy them legally is with a prescription from your optometrist or opthomologist.
Several government agencies, including the FDA and Homeland Security are trying to crack down on the sale of these things. The FDA because they've been known to cause eye damage including scratched corneas, and Homeland Security because they're a threat to our national security. Just kidding, it's because they're trying to stop the illegal importation of them.

Here's that video I was telling you about! Sara says it's "beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time!"
Anybody want Michael Jordan's house? His Highland Park, Illinois estate is going up for auction on Nov. 22, after a year-and-a-half on the market. It was originally listed at 29 million dollars, then marked down to just 21 million. Michael says "My kids are grown so I don't need such a large house." Large? I'd call a house with 15 bathrooms "extra large!" Interested bidders must post a $250,000 deposit! Keeps the "lookey-loos" out, I guess! Here's a tour!
With not just one, but two giant oarfish washing up on Southern California beaches lately, it's got some Californians worried. An old Japanese myth is that oarfish are harbingers of earthquakes. Some believe that the giant fish, which usually stay at least 3000 feet underwater, beach themselves when a large quake is immenent.
There were reports of several oarfish washing up before major quakes in Chile in 2010 and Japan in 2011. (The one in the picture is from near San Diego in 1996.)
Scientists, both biologists and geologists say there is no known connection between the fish and earthquakes. What do you think? Could there be something to this, or does it just smell fishy?

Thousandaire inventor Bruce Scott today unveiled plans for a new transportation system that he says could be built today, and could speed passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in "some amount of time."
The DynaPowrTrans system (short for Dynamic Power Transportation) utilizes high-tension "Next Gen" cables to send people in comfort and safety (helmets will be provided) to their destination for a fraction of the cost of airline flights.
"As for the details, well, I'll leave that to the engineers. The important thing is that I get the credit for coming up for this," says Scott. "This could revolutionize travel as we know it! You're welcome!"
The latest on Casey Kasem is that his health has apparently deteriorated further. Court records from his physician indicate that Casey has advanced Parkinson's disease, and he has major impairments in communication and logical thinking, and is also suffering from hallucinations.
And, strangely, his children from his first marriage are unable to visit him, and are battling Casey's wife Jean (shown here) for conservatorship.
Casey's 81, and I'll tell you he was a huge hero of mine. I never missed "American Top 40" and Casey was a big part of why I wanted to be a radio announcer! I hope Casey is getting the care he needs, and I hope he is allowed to be with his children soon.

I've been watching baseball playoffs and Duck Dynasty lately, and I've come to believe that the era of the giant super-beard is back. Back in the Civil War days, you weren't a real man at all if you didn't have a beard like this, and it was only a matter of time before it came back.
Brian Wilson of the Dodgers says the last time he shaved was 2007. So if I start today, this will be me in about 2020! Are you with me?
