    Cool MOVIE NEWS!

    Got a couple cool movie news tidbits for ya. First, they have just released the new logo for the Batman v Superman movie. At first, I was a little apprehensive to liking this project, but the more I check it out, it's growing on me. I still think they could have chosen a better Batman actor other than Ben Affleck. Just sayin'. THEN, JJ Abrams kinda reveals a new Star Wars 7 character in a video where he talks about a new fundraiser that will let one lucky fan be IN the new movie! And yes, I donated for a chance to win! Click the links below for the full scoop.

    CASEY KASEM HAS BEEN FOUND!

    This has been one bizarre story to say the least. Long time radio host, Casey Kasem, has fallen into a bad state of health as of late, and at 82, his care is important. His childern have not been able to see him in years, and it's due to Casey's wife of 35 years. It's not known why, but it's alleged she does not like Casey's children, and won't let them see him. Sad. Earlier this week, Casey's wife removed him from a care facility and did not say WHERE she took him. His children took to TV and Radio to try and find his whereabouts. Yesterday, he was found, so to speak. Initially, it was thought he was removed from the country, but instead, he seems to be in Washington State. Now, his family hopes to get him back home and get this figured out. Click HERE for the story.

    Radio legend issues

    I have been in radio since I was 16 years old. I was a Junior at Hutchinson High School. Growing up, I was always a radio junkie. I made tapes from my jam-box, I called in to all the radio stations, bothered all the DJ's, and finally became one. Some of my favorite DJ's as a kid are STILL working here in Wichita, and in Hutch, and it has been a honor to be a part of their world. Another person that helped me decide to get in to this business is Casey Kasem. From Casey's Top-40 (which I used to play on the air) to his awesome voice as SHAGGY on Scooby-doo, he really was one I looked up to. Now, at age 82, Casey has parkinsons, and is having major family issues. His wife has taken him from the care facility he was in, and has taken him to an unknown location. Nobody knows where he is! His children are very concerned. Click HERE to read the full story.

    Is your milk REALLY expired?

    I admit it. I am a expiration date weirdo. I WILL NOT drink milk 1 day after the label says it has expired. I just wont. It creeps me out. BUT, this story I found talks about how much longer after the exp date you CAN still eat or drink those foods in the kitchen. Read it, do what you want, but I will continue to refuse day-old milk. Here's the expiration date story.

    Is R A T T no more???

    Yep. RATT could be no longer. Stephen Pearcy has QUIT RATT! For 30 years, RATT has been rockin all over the world, and now Pearcy says it's time to call it quits! He says the constant turmoil in the band is the reason for his exit. So will this be the end of RATT? Only time will tell, but looks like it might be so! My guess is he will still go out and do shows, RATT music, but by himself, and different band. Stay tuned for further developments. Here is what Stephen Pearcy posted as far as a "I Quit" letter....
