What an honor…how the hell did this happen?

What an honor…how the hell did this happen?

Well, I’m not real good at blowing my own horn.  I’ve always been uncomfortable with attention, being in the limelight, etc.  This year I’ve been chosen as one of four Local Broadcast Legends in Wisconsin.  At first I was thinking “Oh no…the spotlight”.  As time gets closer to the Keynote Luncheon at the WBA Summer Conference on June 13 I’m starting to beam a little.  It is an honor to be recognized in this field along with three other great Wisconsin broadcasters. A LOT of very talented broadcasters have graced the airwaves in Wisconsin over the years.  To be chosen as one of them has finally hit me that it is truly an honor. I have such wonderful people that I work for and incredible people I work with that are a big part of this.  Also having a part in this is the wonderful listeners over the years.  I’ve met so many people and many have become lifelong friends.  I’ve also had the pleasure of working with some great people over the years too!  Now granted there have been a few ass-hats I’ve worked with (don’t we all) but they are few and far between LOL.  I had to get that in there. The folks I have the pleasure to work with now are BY FAR the best people I’ve been associated with and I thank them so much. To have a great boss and co-workers that are like family is indeed a luxury in today’s world.  Raising two Daughters completely on my own as well as trying to have a career in broadcasting wasn’t easy. That experience helped mold my career and having the support of family and many co-workers has been priceless.  So there…I blew my horn and life goes on.  You can read more about it here.

Thank You ALL.

With this week having National Cheese Curd day in it I was wondering a few things.  First…National?  Do they celebrate cheese curds in other states like we do in Wisconsin?  Also, it seems another Wisconsin tradition, the bratwurst is expanding.  You hear more and more mention of those delicious tube steaks cropping up all over…read more »

Thank You!

I’ve been doing this for so many years now.  I won’t share how many because that will date me BUT I can tell you that it’s been a few.  In all those years I’ve met MANY wonderful people.  Listeners can be very fickle.  Especially back in my Top40 years.  You play one song and the…read more »

Congrats…We’re getting old(er)

So with so many of our Classic Rock stars passing away do you find yourself starting to think a little more about it than usual?  I remember years ago not even thinking about it.  Somehow it has a slight impact as of late.  With the passing of Eddie Money I actually deleted the Series DVR…read more »

Dan Rather interviews ROCK STARS?

Dan Rather interviews ROCK STARS?

It’s called The Big Interview with Dan Rather.  NEVER would I have thought these would be interesting.  Nothing against Dan Rather but I just never saw him as a rock fan nor someone who has been in the trenches of Vietnam that would conduct interviews with rock stars.  I gotta tell you….I was wrong.  These…read more »
