Michael Rose

Michael, please. Not Mike. I was born and raised in Chicago. Even though I have not lived in the “Big City” since 1992, I still consider myself a Chicagoan (Go Bears!). Other than listening to music, I love to cook. Most weekends you can find me in my kitchen creating something. Nothing fancy, just something out of the ordinary. If you check out my blogs I will occasionally post a recipe I have created. Of course, I had to wire speakers in to my kitchen so I can have music playing while I create. Preferably some Jazz selections – Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Haden, Vince Guaraldi, and the like. When I am not cooking, you can either find me curled up on the couch watching a movie (Blues Brothers, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Goodfellas, Casino), or in my car just driving around.

Is Age Relative When It Comes To Music?

I love this album. It ranks #14 on my "If I were stranded on a desert island and can only take 20 albums with me, what albums would they be" list

Gas or Charcoal – What Is Your Choice For Grilling?

On Tuesday I had the privilege to broadcast from the parking lot of the County Market at 24th & Spring for the appearance of Johnsonville's Big Taste Grill.

This thing is awesome! Its 25' tall, 65' long, gas fired, and can cook 750 brats at a time, or 2500 brats an hour.

What Time Is Dinner?

No, really...what time do you eat dinner? I never thought that this was an issue for discussion until a very good friend of mine started making fun of me about it.

There is usually so much going on with our family, that dinner time can come as late as 9:30pm
