Happy Season Change!

Happy Season Change!

OK…Halloween is done and now we switch modes to full-on Holiday Mode!!!!  AMAZING as yes…I saw my first TV spot last night about Christmas.  Apparently November 1st is the official start of the holiday season?  This year it all makes a little sense as the weather is more like Christmas than fall anyway.  So when…Read more »

STOP TEXTING!

STOP TEXTING!

Ok…I recently took my annual trek to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for business.  In my travels there is a lot of dashboard time for sure.  It’s a long ride.  During that ride I couldn’t help but notice the people that pass me by while looking DOWN at their phones!!  Going 75 miles an hour and just…Read more »

Brats and Cheese Curds

Brats and Cheese Curds

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!

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 »

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 »

To Flu…or not to Flu…THAT is the question!

To Flu…or not to Flu…THAT is the question!

OK…So I’m a big baby!  I HATE needles!  For the last 5 years I’ve been getting allergy shots once per month.  ONE in each arm.  I get so stressed when I head off to the Dr. and I start to sweat when I sit down and then they SHOW ME THE TWO SHOTS to make…Read more »

SALUTE 50 years of Abby Road

SALUTE 50 years of Abby Road

Wow..what can I say but YES this is one of my favorite albums of all time.  Yes I can say I was just a very young “Duffer” when it came out but I remember borrowing it from my cousin to listen on my MONO turntable in my room.  I was an electronics NERD and took…Read more »
