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.

If Lions Go Extinct, I’m Going Chuck Norris On Someone
I'm not normally a soft, emotional type. Nor am I a member of PETA. In fact, I'm on a low-carb diet, so any animal that I see gets nervous. But, I saw a story yesterday that nearly broke my heart. Lions are not far from extinction. If that's true, I'm going Chuck Norris on whoeve…

Stop What You Are Doing Cause The Duchess Is Pregnant
Whatever you are doing, please stop it now. The Duchess is pregnant. That's not my advice, by the way. That seems to be what the press thinks you should do. Of all the incredibly important things happening in the world right now, a British EPT test result is number one. Forgive me if I choose n…
