  • Aerosmith in da houuuuuuuuuuse!!

    ...There are only a handful of lead singers that can just reach out and grab an audience and pull that audience into their world....into their lair so to speak....only a hanful who have that "swagger".....who apitomize what a lead singer of a rock band absolutely should be....someone who not only connects with his audience....but someone who drags them kicking and screaming if he has to right onto the front of the stage.....those that can do that make a very good living....because there are so very few that can pull it off....when I construct my list of performers I have seen do that and do it on a level so far above most....I think of names like Jagger....Axl Rose..(love him or hate him....he had swagger)....Jim Morrison....even David Lee Roth.....and after last night I would definitely add Steven Tyler to that list...I had never seen Aerosmith live until last night and the first thing that hit me while watching them was Tyler definitely has the "it" factor....can't really explain or define it.....but I know it when I see it....Not so Silent Night tickets up for grabs this week during the show so by all means don't miss out on your chance for those...and as always I do hope to see you out and about soon!! Rick

  • Someone gets to kick it with Aerosmith!

    .....Am actually pretty stoked right now!!!...in just a little bit I will be notifying our grand prize winner of the VIP Aerosmith package that he or she will be kicking it with Aerosmith!!!...someone will end up not only going backstage to meet Aerosmith......but will also be sitting on stage during their set!!!! I can not wait to notify them during today's show!!!...not only that I STILL have one pair of FRONT ROW tix left to give away today!!!.....what a great weekend it is going to be!!! Rick

  • Are the Atlanta Falcoms for real??

    ...The only unbeaten team in the NFL right now is the Atlanta Falcons.....are they for real??...Superbowl bound perhaps?....if I were in Vegas right now and had to bet on it.....I would say this.....they are definitely an outstanding football team...their roster is peppered with pro bowlers and they are starting to develop a well above average running game which makes them even more scary.....Shaub is on his way to establishing himself as one of the league's few premiere qbs....Gonzalez is on his last legs of his careeer and yet is having one of his best years.....they are capable of beating anyone in the NFL this very second.....but something deep down inside of me says they are NOT a superbowl caliber team.....I don't know why exactly....just one of those deeply rooted gut instincts that I rarely ignore because they are almost always right on.....in the NFC this year I like the 49ers.....as a sleeper i would say GB Packers.....in the AFC this year I like.....Houston......(if not for an injury to Ray Lewis i would say Baltiimore).....as a sleeper...get ready for this.........Denver. Remember you heard it here first!!!! Rick

  • would you like some flouride?

    ...I guess I am kind of at a loss on this whole flouride in our water controversy....I will be the first to admit perhaps I am just not educated enough on this particular issue...I guess what I don't understand is why flouride is a bad thing in some people's minds....I thought it was supposed to be good for us....for our overall dental health......again, I am sure there are many things about this issue I am simply not educated on.....but I could swear we had flouride in our water when we were kids growing up.....at least I thought we did...Aerosmith in town Sunday!!!!!! Rick

  • Are you ready for Aerosmith?

    ...Aerosmith in town on Sunday.....should be an outstanding show!!! I mean even if you are not the world's biggest Aerosmith fan.....EVERYONE at least likes a couple of their songs if nothing else...they will roll hit after hit after hit at us,,,,,gonna be off da hook!!!....speaking of which I will be giving away 2nd row seats on today's show.......FRONT row on tomorrow's show!!...if I had to pick my favorite track from them it would not be easy,,,,would have to narrow it down to maybe 3...such as sweet emotion.....livin on the edge.....same old song and dance.....anyways hope to see you out and about soon!!! Rick

  • DId your guy win?

    ...Another four years of President Obama.....I watched for a good couple hours last night as the election results came in...and to be honest I was suprised....not so much that Obama won...but more so by how much he won by.....I really thought it would come down to the wire....I will say this as well....I do not envy the president....I would not want that job!Can you imagine how much daily pressure is piled upon him?...how much he ages while in office?,,,,,,,On a lighter note still giving away Aerosmith tix this week during the show so make sure you get in on it!!! Rick

  • The NFL season is at the half way point!

    ....Hard to believe, but we are already half way through this year's NFL season......and there are most definitely some suprises to say the least...I mean who woulda thought the Cowboys would only have 3 wins at this point?....I am not saying I had them picked to make it much past the first round,,,,,but only 3 wins at this point??? wow.....and who woulda thought the Bears would have only one loss....or that Seattle would be looking like a contender....or that New Orleans would be in a must win situation this early on?...makes me wonder what the next half will bring,,,,,,speaking of New Orleans.....Saints Eagles tonight on MNF! thanks for stopping by,,,,Rick

  • Had a great weekend!

    ...what a great weekend!....was good to see everyone come out to the Jesse James Dupree signing on Sat afternoon....even saw someone had a chainsaw for him to sign!....The Jackyll show was off da hook Sat night from what everyone says,,,,and I understand the Primus show was something special as well on Sunday!....Ron Schneider in town tonight at the Loony Bin,,,i understand as I type this there are still some tix left for the late show....I do hope you are having a great Monday! Rick

  • Turning back time

    ...Have you ever wondered what you would say to yourself if you could go back in time....say ten years or so?......what if you could go back in time for one day and tell yourself anything....let's say you went back to ten years ago....while retaining all the info/knowledge you currently have today....and you could talk to ... you......what kind of advice would you give yourself?....obviously it will differentiate depending on each individual....i mean we all have our own blueprints so to speak...when I think about it I honestly don't know for sure what I would tell myself....I can think of some things in general I might say....but not specific things.......I think I would tell myself to perhaps take more time for the little things that in all actuality are the HUGE things that will be cherished as life goes on....things like calling an old friend I haven't talked to in way too long.....taking a day off just to...well....take a day off and maybe jump in my car and drive to somewhere i have never been....just to do it.....perhaps introduce myself to the neighbor i have seen time and time again and have yet to say hi to......spend the day at the zoo......ask a friend what their favorite book is....and then read it.......go visit my uncle who I NEVER see despite the fact he only lives a couple hours away....now that I think about it these definitely are specific things lol....I will be out and about this weekend and I definitely hope to see you out and about as well! Rick

  • favorite games to play

    ....A friend of mine and I were discussing this just the other day.....do you recall the games you and other kids in your neighborhood used to play?....and do you think kids sill play them today?...I can vividly recall spending entire afternoons playing sandlot football....or kick the can......or capture the flag.....and of course when we had enough of us we would play some good old fashioned sandlot baseball.....those were magical days to say the least....sometimes I wish i could go back and be ten again for just one week....just so i could relive some of those days.....we honestly often thought they would never end....thanks for stopping by..........Rick

  • Baseball season ends,,,,,Football takes the wheel.

    ....Congratulaions to the San Fransisco Giants!....not only did they win the World Series and therefore are now world champions, they did so via a four game sweep of a Detroit Tigers lineup that is chalk full of good hitters.....that is an impressive accomplishment if I do say so myself!....I watched my fill of NFL action over the weekend as well....Dallas just cant catch a break....Kansas City is already looking forward to next year.....Peyton continues to roll in Denver....The Bears are proving to be an NFC powerhouse this year.....The suprise this year so far in the NFL?....would have to say either Minnesota....or Indianapolis......I would have to say both so far have exceeded expectations.....but then again the season is only half over so we will see .....thank you for stopping by as always!
