    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.

    Tommy Lee gonna play with the Smashing Pumpkins!

    I interviewed Tommy Lee of Motley Crue about a month ago, and I asked him if after they play their last show if he was gonna go chill on a beach for a while. He said HELL NO! He said he hates to sit around and do nothing, and that he has some big projects in the works. Apparently, this was one of em! Next year, the Smashing Pumpkins have a new album coming out, and Tommy is drummin' on it! Pretty cool! Billy Corgan and Tommy are buds, so they talked, and the rest is history!

    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....

    Ya see Colbert on Letterman last night?

    When they first announced Letterman was retiring, I thought they could never fill his shoes with anything comparable. Then, they announced Stephen Colbert would be taking Lettermans place. I gotta tell ya.... I was kinda like "HUH"?? I watched the Colbert Report, I LIKE the Colbert Report, but the LATE SHOW? THEN, I was shocked to learn that Stephen Colbert was simply playing a character on the Colbert Report? WHA? So after watching numerous videos of Colbert as a "real guy" and watching him last night on the Late Show, I think he's gonna do good! He takes over at some point in 2015, so get ready for the NEW Late Show!

    Y'all know I am a Star Wars geek. Since a little boy, Star Wars has fascinated me. It has become a part of my life I guess you could say! When it was announced Disney purchased all things Star Wars from George Lucas, I was skeptical. Ok, I'm still a little skeptical, but from what I've seen so far, it has calmed me down a bit. Yeah, I know. Even writing this, I feel like a nerd. WHO CARES! HA! Anyway, a super-secret set has been spotted in Abu-Dahbi, AND it looks like a foot of an AT-AT! Could this be planet Tatooine? This is getting serious! Ok, I'll stop my endless chatter...... see it all for yourself! Click HERE for the story on the secret filming set!

HERE is a story about a cat that farts so much, he was returned to the shelter his owners got him from! MAN! They really need to put BEANO in cat food! HAHA!
