    Would it be ok with you?

    Would it be ok with you if people came up to you and blew cigarette smoke in your face? Would it be ok with you if people would shoot guns at you if they said they promised not to hit you? OF COURSE NOT! You might even say that's a no-brainer! Then WHY IN THE HELL would you allow yourself to be a passenger in a car where the driver is texting & driving? Have you ever heard this.... "Oh stop, I'm good at it! AND I'm keeping my eyes on the road!" Uhhhhh, not good. Numerous studies continue to show that cell phone use behind the wheel is very bad. Whether your talking or texting, it's just bad news. Unless you're a fan of death. If you are, text away! Sheesh. The FCC, which governs all media, has a great article regarding this issue. Check out the startling facts, and what they want to do to stop it. Click HERE to read it. Also, we want you to join us and Davis-Moore in taking the pledge to DON'T TEXT & DRIVE. Take the pledge HERE, and you'll be entered to win a iPad Mini.

    VIDEO: NEW Pink Floyd album coming out SOON!

    HOLY S***! For the first time in nearly 20 years, Pink Floyd has a NEW album coming out! This is freakin sweet! It's gonna be called "The Endless River", and it's a tribute to the band's keyboardist, Rick Wright. Wright died in 2008. The album is mostly made up of music that Wright, David Gilmour and Nick Mason put together during a session in 1993. That's when the last studio album, "The Division Bell" was released (1994). They said that because of the technology of today, they were able to get this done in such a way that sounds incredible. In the meantime, enjoy one of the new songs, MAROONED.

    Mythbusters is one of my FAVORITE tv shows! These guys are like me. We LOVE TO BLOW STUFF UP! All for a good cause of course! In one of their many different "myths" they have done on the show, one was very similar to the point we've been trying to push. Cell phones while driving are a BAD idea! How bad? The demonstration was to show that using your phone behind the wheel is as bad as drunk driving! Check out the video.

    VIDEOS: Will Ferrell & Chad Smith team up for a good cause!

    If you didn't know it, or have been living under a rock, Will Ferrell and RHCP drummer Chad Smith look like twins! For years, people have been making the comparison. After all the talk, the two finally got together for a "drum-off", and since then, they have capitalized on their looks. Now, it stops there. Wil Ferrell is NOT a good drummer. Chad has nothing to worry about. HA! Most recently, Ferrell joined Chad, and a all-star group, to provide something he can play well. The cowbell. He was in Seattle for a benefit called "Cancer for College". This all-star group included, along with Chad Smith, was Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, Dave Matthews Band bassist Stefan Lessard, Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan and singer Brandi Carlile. They played under the name "I Pissed My Pants". This is the video of their performance. Also, check out the video of the "drum-off" from the Jimmy Fallon Show.

    REAL stories about texting and driving incidents

    You've been hearing us for a few weeks now talking about the perils of texting and driving. This isn't something we just decided to cook up just to be cool. We decided to do this with Davis-Moore, because Dawson Grimsley is known for caring deeply for the community, and this has become a huge problem in the United States. We have a radio station. We have the power to reach your ears. We have the power to beg you to don't text and drive. We care about you and your kids. We have Dawson and Davis-Moore on our team. I am a parent, and worry that when my daughter is with someone's family in a car, that they will not be texting or playing with the phone while driving. Click the picture for a bunch of stories that will hopefully show you how bad this could be for you and your family. Then, click the link to take the pledge. When you do, you'll be entered to win a iPad Mini.

    Scott Weiland arrested! Oh wait, no he wasn't. Or was he? HUH??

    This is freakin weird. Police in Beverly Hills were called to a drugstore for a shoplifting report. When they arrived, they arrested a guy for stealing razors, and posession of meth. The man told police he was Scott Weiland. He provided police with all the details that "proved" he was Weiland. They bought it, and threw him in jail. Then, they proudly announced they ARRESTED SCOTT WEILAND! Yeah, the REAL Weiland saw this, then posted a video saying he was NOT arrested, the man in jail is NOT him, and he's currently touring, etc, and NOT in jail! So police were a bit embarassed, and upon a thourogh fingerprint check, etc, they found out it was in fact NOT Scott Weiland, but instead, a 44 year old named Michael Hurley. Whoops!

    Star Wars 7 photo LEAK!

    As you all may be aware, I am a Star Wars GEEK! I have always been a huge fan, and when they announced Disney was taking over, it took me a while to digest it. I immediately thought it was gonna turn to crap. Who knows! It may! HA! But right now, my thoughts are on the positive side, and early leaked pictures of sets, characters, etc, have kept me positive. Today, I came across another "leaked" photo. And this one is allegedly from a reliable source. It's a helmet, the head if you will, of a Stormtrooper from Star Wars 7. I'ts pretty cool! Check it out for yourself. Click HERE to see it.
