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!

Muppet Memories

My wife and I went to see The Muppets on Sunday afternoon.  Yeah it was out Thanksgiving weekend; we wanted to go then, but didn't make it.  Since that time it's been a constant barrage of "life getting in the way."

My favorite Muppets were the Swedish Chef, Beaker and Statler & Waldorf (the old guys in the balcony).  I always enjoyed the old guys because, even as a kid, I liked to bitch about things just like they did.  And the Swedish Chef did things that made me laugh every time.

Fred Meijer Public Visitation

Everywhere on radio, TV or Facebook, there are stories and links about Fred Meijer. Maybe you've seen or heard the stories. Maybe you've shopped in one his many stores. Maybe both.

And maybe hearing the stories has made you think "wow, he was a normal person that I probably would've gotten along with."  Such was the case for my wife and I.  (We also are interested in his business background and stories of innovation, growth and treating people well, but that's secondary.)

So we attended the public visitation today at Meijer Gardens.

Check The Calories AFTER You’ve Eaten Cookie Dough…

Last night after the "KO Cancer" event at the JW Marriott, my wife and I went to find some food.  When all three of the places we wanted to hit on 44th Street were closed, we opted to grab some frozen pizza at Family Fare.

During our run through the store for pizza, we spotted EGG NOG.  We grabbed it.  We also had a craving for COOKIE DOUGH.  So we grabbed that too.

Unhealthy?  You bet.  But oh, so good.

For The Love Of God, Get Out Of The Left Lane!

Let me preface this by saying I'm not a patient person.  I've been accused of having road rage once or twice. And I probably drive faster than most people, most of the time. But that doesn't make it any more acceptable for you to drive slow in the left lane
