  • Pro Wrestling Apitomizes America!!!!

    ...I love pro wrestling and am not at all ashamed to admit it...WWE is truly the "greatest show on Earth".....and I mean that with absolutely no offense whatsoever to Ringling Brothers.....I guess what i like most about it is the carnival like atmosphere it brings...the "anything can and usualy does happen" mentality......yes I am well aware of the fact that the matches are pre determined and the moves are mostly staged.....but I don't care and that is the real beauty of it.....it is by far entertaining enough and just insane enough to make me not care about that....if that makes any sense at all.....to me it represents what America is and hopefully always will be....it's a realm in which nothing is impossible and where one who puts their mind to it can accomplish anything.....it's a place where being the underdog is not even remotely a bad thing....and it's a place where starting over is not a death sentance but rather a challenge.....Yes I will gladly watch the 3 hour special edition of WWE Raw tonight......and enjoy every second of it! thank you for stopping by as always ..... Rick

  • Nickelback Show, etc

    .....I thought the show was outstanding!....My Darkest Days brought some great energy and Seether as always rocked the house!!!....Bush.....WOW.....exceeded my expectations easily.....Gavin Rossdale covering Come Together while up in the actual stands amongst the audience....that was awesome!...Nickelback is one of those bands who it is always great to see live considering they can just play hit after hit after hit.....overall I would have to say no one was disappointed! thanks for stopping by.................Rick

  • Huge weekend!

    Riverfest wrapping up this weekend and a huge show in town tonight!!!!! Nickelback/Seether/Bush/My Darkest Days.......WHAT AN INCREDIBLE LINE UP!!!....doors at 5 show at 6 tonight at IBA!.....and yes tix still available but going fast so get em if you haven't yet!...we will be hosting the Party on the Plaza starting at 3 in front of IBA.....Barrelbright cranking things up at 4......prizes....including last second meet and greet for Nickelback!!!!.....I will be at Pleasures tomorrow night by the way......9-11p broadcasting live.......I do hope to see you soon! Rick

  • Axl

    ....wassuppppppp! I hope you are having an outstanding Thursday.......just 24 hours till the BIGGEST show of the summer!!!!! Nickelback/Seether/Bush/My Darkest Days......IT IS GONNA BE OFF DA HOOOOOOOOK!.....Party on the Plaza starts at 4pm with Barrelbright......hope to see you there!....Axl Rose get's his jewelry back after an attempted (alleged) heist....I am probably one of the very very few people on planet earch who actually defends Axl to some degree....I mean don't get me wrong....I get the fact that he comes off as a total diva....I get the fact that it is irritating at best when he decides to take the stage at 10 instead of 7......I get the fact that it is childish and flat out stupid that he can not seem to put his differences aside and co exist with Slash long enough to attend a hall of fame induction or even actually re unite for just one night.....I get all of that and I totally understand why he rubs people the wrong way as a result....I guess the only reason I half way defend him is because .... well....there was a time when rock stars were SUPPOSED to be that way.....we expected it....applauded it.....encouraged it....and lived vicariously through it.....maybe Axl is kind of a throwback to the days when rock stars just didn't give a rat's *ss....when they actually took pride in flipping the bird to the man and rebelling against the norm......some times I do think that's what rock seems to miss now.....I mean I absolutely looooooove the rock format......I am thankful as all get out that I get to be exposed to it daily......but I do sometimes think that just maybe.......and I realize this sounds insane....but just maybe a little more Axl is what rock needs right now.........thanks for stopping by!!!! Rick

  • Sports Fans!!

    ....Let's see....My beloved Yankees are 6 games over 500 as of this very second......which puts them a half game back of Tampa/Baltimore (who are tied for first) and even more importantly....a full 2 games in front of Boston!!!!!!!!! Any diehard Yankee fan knows very few fates worse than trailing the Red Sox......so for now......thank god they are in front of Boston!!!!!!.......Speaking of Boston....how can anyone not fall in love with the effort put forth by those pesky Boston Celtics???? I absolutely love it.....not because I am a Celtics fan as much as the simple fact they were told by the media all season long they didn't have a chance....they didn't have enough star player talent....they are too old....they are not fast enough......etc etc etc.......I think it is awesome that they refused to listen to any of that and are now up 3 games to 2 against a favored Miami Heat team.....granted the series is far from over so we will just have to see what happens next! thanks for stopping by.............Rick

  • Hollywood.....Foo Fighters!

    ....Did you see this??? Taylor Hawkins will be playin none other than Iggy Pop in a new film entitled "CBGB"....which centers around the now defunct iconic rock club and punk scene...should make for some very interesting cinema!!!

  • Seether...let's shoot some video....etc

    .....Another day closer to Nickelback/Seether/Bush/My Darkest Day!!!.....If i had to pick a favorite out of those....as difficult as it may be.....don't get me wrong I think they are all outstanding.....but I do have to admit I am definitely a diehard Seether fan...Their lyrical content alone has me hooked every time I listen to them....and they seem to just keep getting better!....shot some good video of the Dodge Ball tourny at Riverfest the other day....check it out at T95.com when you get a chance...had a great time doing it and by all means if you have any good ideas for my next video shoot please let me know!.....am always looking for the next video trek/adventure so to speak...text me at 316 768 1010 if you have any ideas or simply email me!...(rlthomas@t95.com). thank you as always for stopping by! Rick

  • Memorial Day

    ...I hope you are having an outstanding Memorial Day!...Every time I see military personnel....whether they are in uniform or not....I always make an effort to shake their hands and thank them personally....if not for them I would not be able to do what I do for a living...not to mention the fact that none of us would be able to enjoy the freedoms we have today if not for them....I will never forget those who have paid the ultimate sacrafice for us and I will also never forget those who put their lives on the line in the line of duty in order to secure our freedoms...as well as those who continue to do so today....tonight before I go to bed I will light a candle and put it in my window...it's not much....but it is my way of paying tribute and respect for those who are no longer with us because they chose to put their lives on the line defending you and I from tyranny...if you get a chance light a candle tonight as well......thank you for stopping by! Rick.

  • Zombie!!!

    ...What a huge show tonight at Hartman!!!

  • Radio

    ....When I started in this business I was all of 15 years old and could barely see over the control board.....believe it or not I actually cued up records on occasion......when is the last time you saw someone do that??..I started at a news/talk station in Great Bend Ks.....KVGB....it was news talk on one side and country on the other....my first job in radio involved me basically doing 2 minute news breaks and 1 minute psa/weather breaks a couple of times an hour......not long into it I received a call from a program director in Hoisington Ks at KHOK (a CHR top forty station at the time)....he had heard one of my breaks while in his car one Sunday morning and for whatever reasons liked what I did.....he asked me if I would be interested in doing overnights (back then they actually had live over night radio) at KHOK on the weekends .... basically midnight to 6 friday and sat nights....I was thrilled to death at the oppurtunity and within a couple weeks I was developing my craft on the overnight shift sat and sun mornings from midnight to six....I was all of 16 and doing overnights on a top forty station on the weekends and I couldn't have been more excited about it....sure I missed alot of weekend events throughout my high school days but you could not have dragged me out of that studio....to me there was nothing like managing a gigantic stack of cds....carts.....and a reel to reel recorder for phones in the middle of the night......creating magic so to speak between songs and in breaks.....I flew by the seat of my pants and didnt always land softly....but that's what getting your chops is all about....Radio has evolved and definitely changed since then...the technology we have today is nothing short of incredible compared to back then...but I do have to admit....sometimes late at night...when the moon is bright and the stars are shining bright as well...a piece of me misses those days of having to create magic at the drop of a hat so to speak...those were fun days...and nights.......hope to see you out and about soon! Rick.
