Born and raised in Hannibal, Missouri...I stopped maturing at age 12 and I have the radio show to prove it.  Authorities found me at age 19 in a corner talking to myself...so they decided to give me a pair of headphones, a microphone and a brand new room (with padded walls) for me to talk to myself in...and they called it radio...and that brings us to today. I have been torturing (I mean "entertaining") listeners for 29 years and have been fortunate to win many Missouri Broadcaster awards along the way...which just proves how much everyone else sucks. Truth is I have the best radio listeners in the world who treat me better than any human being could possibly deserve.  And that special relationship we have will continue...at least until K-Mart starts hiring again.

Well Done, Cathy Smith, Well Done

If you ever watched the TV show 'WKRP in Cincinnati,' then you know all you need to know about radio salespeople. The stereotypical Herb Tarlek type of salesperson that wears a big white belt and would sell absolutely anything no matter how awful it sounds on the radio. Cathy Smith has been a sales person here at KICK-FM...well, pretty much forever. But, she's is no Herb Tarlek. (And I mean that as a compliment) Today is Cathy's last day here at KICK and we can only say one thing to her..."Well done".

Christmas Doesn’t Mean Anything To Me Anymore

I know that many will misunderstand this, but I have to admit that Christmas doesn't mean anything (positive) to me anymore. Go ahead and throw the Scrooge accusations my way. I probably deserve them. But the holiday that used to be my all-time favorite is now the time of year I dread the most. I've done some soul searching and asked myself "what's changed?".

It’s Hard To Do A Radio Show When You Have No Voice

Good thing for me that there aren't a lot of requirements to have a radio show. If you have less than seven felony convictions and have the skills to unlock a door every morning, then you are qualified to have a morning radio show. Oh, and you have to have a voice. Thanks to a seasonal cold/sinus thing, I haven't had one of those for a few days. Dang the luck.

One Week Later – Heroes Remembered, Killer Forgotten

It doesn't feel like it's been a week yet. Seven days since we learned of the murderous rampage committed against precious children in Newtown, Connecticut. I didn't want to know the name of the killer then and I won't remember him now. But, I am actively working to remember the names and stories of the teachers and students. Here are a couple that have inspired me personally.

I Am Part of an Exclusive Driving Club in The Tri-States

It's no secret that I'm not really the country club type. No offense intended at those who are, but I'm the last guy most folks want in their "exclusive club". I am however a member of a club that most people probably don't think about much. The club is called "Those That Drive The Speed Limit On Highway 172".
