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.
The Bud Shootout is this weekend. Except it's not called the "Bud Shootout" anymore. The powers that be (and the lords of corporate sponsorship) have determined the first NASCAR exhibition of the year will be called the "Sprint Unlimited". Did I mention that I hate my cell phone? Different subject. Bottom line is I get to get me some NASCAR on TV this weekend and that's all that matters.
This Friday will be my last day on the radio here at KICK-FM. I didn't make a big deal about it on the air because...well...I hate it when radio people make a big deal about their "last show". KICK-FM will go on without me and do just fine. I didn't want any of my time on the air to be one big tribute to me. That being said, there are a few things I would like to say before I go.
My brain has been pretty much empty this week. In other words, things have been completely normal. But, I did have one random thought appear today...and that random thought is "boy, I'd sure like some watermelon". Note, I did not say that my random thought was profound.
I could try to be all diplomatic about this, but I'd prefer to just come out and say it. Valentine's Day sucks. I'm not sure that I can prove this scientifically. But, the fact that Taylor Swift and the girly man from Twilight starred in a movie called "Valentine's Day" should be evidence enough all by itself.
What do other drivers do that irks you the most? There are some universal irritations when it comes to driving. But, in the tri-state area, we have some unique roads and situations that tend to drive some of us crazy. Here are a few of our (non) favorites.
If you know me, you know I like to live in the world of "pretend". So, as the rest of the world gets ready to enjoy the actual Super Bowl in New Orleans on Sunday, I will grab my controller and play the game now. If you don't like spoilers, look away now. Cause otherwise you will know who wins the big game before the big game happens. Either that or you will witness some of the evidence that will be presented at my insanity hearing.
There have been widespread reports from all over Hannibal that the internet is down in the city. It's a bit odd to be posting this news on a website. Kind of like calling someone on their cell phone to tell them that cell service is down. Leave it to me to notify everyone on the internet when they would have to have access to the internet to see it. Let's just say I've never been accused of being the sharpest knife in the drawer.
If you don't like storms, you probably aren't gonna have a great day today. We have a pretty intense day of thunderstorms going through the area and it's not going to be fun. Unless of course, you are Reed Timmer or as he's known on Facebook, Reed Timmer, Extreme Meteorologist and Storm Chaser.
