Have a great night everyone!
This is what I am doing four out of five nights this week at 4:35 p.m.
The segment airs on the local radio station @ 5:20 p.m. on 92.9 the Breeze!

At first I was scared to death to talk on the radio...but, now that I know that I don't sound like a child (at least not as much as I thought I would) I don't mind doing it. It's actually kinda fun. Kinda.


  1. A daughter on the radio.
    A son on TV.
    Do you think there is a future for Oakley or Molly on "Dock Dogs"?
