Hey, I’m the “new guy” here at 100.5 The River.  We’ll get to hang out for part of your workday and the drive home while you’re listening to Today’s Best Mix without the rap. Some people asked “why would you move HERE?” when I started.  I answer that question with disbelief and realize that people in GR simply don’t realize what a great city they have.  Grand Rapids is just a fantastic city.  The people, the downtown, the festivals, the philanthropy of our ‘famous families’ … the list goes on and on.  The VIBE of this city is just incredible.  Those who say “why would you move HERE?” clearly don’t realize how crappy most other similar sized cities are compared to GR. We moved here from the vibrant and clean city (#sarcasm) of Toledo, OH where I was the Operations Manager for six radio stations.  Before that, I was on-air or programming stations in Philadelphia, New York City, Milwaukee, Madison, Cedar Rapids (Iowa) and Waterloo (Iowa). My wife and I met in Madison and were married four days after 9/11.  We have two “furry kids” named Ollie (yellow lab/bassett/corgi) and Chester (bassett). I’m also the Program Director for Channel 95-7 and 100.5 The River, so if you have any comments, suggestions or complaints (I welcome compliments, too), just email or call me!

Madcap Coffee (Downtown GR) Voted One of Best In U.S.

We're a little behind the curve on this story, but a great story like this is better late than never.  The website Delish.com rated coffee shops all over the United States and our very own MADCAP COFFEE on Monroe Center was on the list!

Here's what they had to say...

“Before The Skates” at Rosa Parks Circle

I've said many times before that lifelong Grand Rapidians don't know what a great city they have.  From the philanthropy that built the arena, convention center and a lot of the Medical Mile, to the savvy business owners who continue to invest in downtown, GR has a vibe that few cities (smaller or bigger) can match

Santa’s Official Reindeer Cam

Are your kids getting excited for Christmas?  Santa has a live Reindeer-Cam where your kids can see what Comet, Dasher, Rudolph and the rest of Santa’s reindeer team are up to.

We’re not sure which of the reindeer are in this camera angle, but Rudolph appears to be elusive in all of our viewing so far.  And it looks like there hasn’t been much snow at the North Pole, either!

Funny: A Michigan Map

One of my Facebook friends posted this today.  I got a pretty good laugh out of it, only because it seems like every state has some similar myopic view.

When I lived in Milwaukee, the running joke was "What's a Wisconsinite definition of coast to coast?  Driving from Milwaukee to LaCrosse."  And there was a lot of truth to that.
