  • 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.

  • Middle of week!

    ...You gotta love Wednesdays.......i mean it's like they mark the official beginning of the downhill slide into the weekend!!!....we are yet another day closer to Rob Zombie/Megadeth out at Hartman and that is going to rock!!!!!!!.....am still kicking myself for missing Rockfest this year....but hey there is always next year!....Ribfest this weekend get all the dirt on that at T95.com.....nothing like some outstanding smoked ribs!!!!!....willl be at Bourbon Street on Friday night, Rusty Eck 2-4 and Midwest Drum from 4-6 Saturday afternoon......as always I do hope to see you out and about soon! Rick

  • Today 05 15

    ....wassup!!!!! I hope I find you having a great Tuesday!.....on this day in 1941.....Joe Dimaggio began his yet to be duplicated 56 game hitting streak.....a record which no one has really even came close to since....on this day in 1953 Rocky Marciano snagged his 44th pro boxing victory over Jersey Joe Walcott....it took him about 2 and a half minutes of the first round to do so....and on this day in 1981 Len Barker....a 25 year old pitcher for the Cleveland Indians pitched a 3-0 win against the Toronto Blue Jays.....and he did so while not allowing a single runner to reach first base....thus making him only the tenth major leaguer in history to toss a perfect game.........I do hope to see you out and about soon!!! Rick

  • Beasties

    ..........I vividly recall the first time i saw the Beastie Boys on MTV.....I also recall the impact they had.......on an entire generation......everyone has their own story when it comes to this band.....to me it was never so much about their music as it was simply what they were....if that makes any sense at all.....they not only stood up to the man,,,,,they took great pride in letting the world know the man could kiss their hind ends....and i think that's what made it work....they opened up an entire generation to the concept of just saying in big bold letters....WHY NOT?.....and they took it to a level never before seen in the mainstream......and that is what i will always take with me from them....Rest in peace Adam. Rick
