    Vacation time! Check out this rollercoaster!

    I'm headed out on summer vacation next week. My daughter, Gabby, wants to go to Worlds Of Fun in KC. Ok, fine. We'll go, but I told her there will be NO rollercoasters for ole dad. Yes. Rollercoasters freak me out. Always have. And I don't give a damn admitting that to the world. HA! I have friends that LOVE rollercoasters and get a huge adrenaline rush riding them. As a matter of fact, when I interviewed Tommy Lee of Motley Crue, that was something he brought up. He LOVES roller coasters, and LOVES hitting theme parks to check out the coasters when they're out on tour. That explains his rollercoaster-esque drum set-ups he has on stage! Six Flags is always known for their bigger better faster coasters, and they have a new one for you to check out. It's called "GOLIATH" and is located at their park in Gurnee, Illinois. This is a triple record breaking wooden coaster! It's the fastest, tallest, and steepest wooden roller coaster in the world! Check out the video HERE, and take a virtual ride! Enjoy your summer vacations, and look for me WATCHING you ride em! HAHAHA!

    I started radio with Casey Kasem. RIP Casey.

    I'm gonna open up and tell you MY history of Radio. First, YES, I was a mechanic. I grew up working at my Dad's shop in Hutchinson. I learned a lot, and also learned I had a big love for music in my heart which eventually pulled me away from the shop. When I was even younger, I would have the radio on my bed's headboard, and listen, and listen, and listen. I would be the irritating kid that would call the DJ's and request songs and win prizes. I would win, then have my Grandpa take me after school to pick em up! I would also wake up early on Sundays and tune in to 106.1 KSKU and listen to "Casey's Top 40". I was mesmerized by Casey and the stories he would tell, and think to myself about being in that chair and talking on the radio just like him. Flash forward.... I was a Junior at Hutchinson High School, and my cousin Wade and I would deliver the morning announcements over the p.a. to the whole school. We were the class clowns. It was then I decided to get a job. I worked at Western Sizzlin for a couple months in addition to Dad's shop. The whole time, I would wear my cassette radio walkman and pretend to be the DJ. One Monday, I thought I would take a shot in the dark and apply for a job at KSKU. I walked in, filled out a app, and literally, the very next weekend, was put in the studio at 6am on Sundays making sure CASEY'S TOP 40 was on the air!!! I was in heaven! I got to be a small part of the operation of CT40! It was amazing! I made it! And here's how long ago that was. The show would arrive at the radio station every week on 4 RECORDS. Yeah, records. I still have a bunch of those in my collection. I did that for a long time before they took a chance and put me on the air (and boy did they regret that.... HAHAHA!!!!) Anyway, 25 years later, we have arrived at this day where Casey Kasem has passed. He will be missed, and I thank him for helping me indirectly get my start in radio. I'll never forget the first time I heard..... "KEEP YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND, AND KEEP REACHING FOR THE STARS".

    Dave Chappelle IS ALIVE!

    A few years ago, comedian Dave Chappelle vanished from the planet. He simply stepped away from his hugely successfull TV show, and completely walked away from 50 MILLION DOLLARS! And the big question is why, and where did you go? These questions were KINDA answered last night on the Letterman Show. Dave was a guest, so in my mind, this means he is sliding back slowly into the spotlight for some sort of comeback. At least I hope that's the case. He's a funny mo-fo! Click HERE for the story and video clip from Letterman.

    Can you believe... OJ Simpson case was 20 years ago!

    I remember it well. I was in college, living with my friends, and I came home to them watching a white Ford Bronco driving on the highway. When I asked what's up, they told me OJ was being chased for possibly killing his wife! DAMN! Hard to believe that was 20 years ago! Click HERE to see a retrospect, and see "where they are now".

    Is it the NFL, or the MAFIA?

    HA! I saw this and flipped out. When the NFL chooses a host city for the Superbowl, they really put em through the ringer! For example, Minneapolis won the right to host the Super Bowl in 2018. In order for the NFL to come to town, Minneapolis had to, or will have to comply with some tough regulations! Here's just one SMALL example. "If the host hotel's location has inadequate cell phone service, a portable cell phone tower must be erected there to insure quality cell service." THAT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE SMALL DEMANDS! Crazy!

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.

    NEW Led Zeppelin music!

    When a band comes out with "previously un-released" music, it usually sucks. Face it, the unreleased stuff is usually stuff that wasn't good enough to put out the first time! HA! Well, Led Zeppelin is changing that! A new, remastered box set is on the way with unreleased music, that according to people that have heard it, is BAD-ASS!

    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.
