Get Your 2014 Fair Tickets Here!

August 1, 2014

The highlight of this morning’s show had to be Deana Martinez spilling her Naked strawberry juice all over the front of her new Nevada County Fair shirt. Those are the moments on-air I live for. The very first pair of entrance tickets to this year’s Nevada County Fair went out this morning on the Morning… read more

August Already? Party Tardy!

July 30, 2014

With just one day remaining in the month of July, it’s time for our area students–young and old alike–to start getting routine ready. The radio and television ads  are constant. Major retailers are promoting the latest back to school fashions, accessories and scholastic gadgets. My personal favorite at the moment, hands down, is the locker chandelier. This summer break has flashed… read more

In Fair Gear

July 29, 2014

As I scanned my emails this morning looking for local birthday requests, timely musician news and other FM fodder, I came across an email from Tom Fitzsimmons, the station program director. The subject line read “Gazebo Schedule.” Immediately I craved a Treat Street corn dog. The Nevada County Fair is eight days away. The station… read more

Sweeeep!

July 28, 2014

I had a more than usual pep in my step this morning while getting ready for work. Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Dodgers paid the San Francisco Giants a visit at AT&T Park for a three game series. What resulted was the Dodgers outscoring the Giants 17 to four, taking a one and a… read more

Battle In The Bay

July 25, 2014

I’m going to make this week’s blog short and sweet. Tonight the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants begin a three game series at AT&T Park. This is the first time the two teams have met this season since a jury awarded Brian Stow $18 million in damages for the brutal 2011 attack by… read more

Here Comes The Heat Again

July 24, 2014

Last night, for the first evening in weeks, I slept comfortably with the assistance of just a single ceiling fan set to low speed. No late night water glass refills or midnight showers. No panting bulldog or 2A.M. damp t-shirt launch. I awoke this morning feeling like  I hadn’t just spent six hours rotating on… read more

Inked and Fried: First Day Back from Oahu

July 23, 2014

What a trip. After five days in Oahu, Hawaii, we touched down at San Francisco International Airport Monday morning at 5:57 A.M., and I’m stoked to be home…and am VERY sun burnt. Today was my first day back at work with Deana on the FM morning show, and my first work day ever as a… read more

Malama Pono

July 15, 2014

Our bags are packed…almost! All week around the office my co-workers have been reminding me that the  “countdown to freedom lost” meter is ticking, and that at 9:30 P.M. (California time) on Thursday, July 17th, I will be a willing participant in a small, sunset wedding ceremony with my fiancee Amelia. Dropping our dog off… read more

Party Like Its Deutschland 2014

July 14, 2014

As I sat and watched the World Cup championship match on Sunday between Germany and Argentina, I couldn’t believe how fixated I’d become on a sport I have always considered to be humdrum and inferior. I really caught what the media has been referring to as “World Cup fever.” I also realized after watching hours… read more

Here Comes The All-Star Break : How Are We Doing?

July 11, 2014

With less than a week before Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, neither the San Francisco Giants nor the Los Angeles Dodgers have managed to gain much separation from one another in the National League West. That’s not good for LA fans. Having grown up in Orange County, I have been a Dodger fan for a… read more

From A Gurney To Paradise

July 10, 2014

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions for me and my loved ones. After a sleep deprived few weeks of spinning the wheel of mortality in my mind, throwing all sorts of scenarios against the wall, I finally had my appointment Tuesday at the Placer Center For Health. Doctors examined my esophagus, stomach,… read more

2013-14 NFL Football : What Will You Remember?

January 21, 2014

For the first time since 2005, I’m genuinely looking forward to watching the Super bowl. That year, my beloved Philadelphia Eagles fell short in Super bowl 39 to the New England Patriots. We came darn close to capturing our fourth NFL title. That’s right, professional football was being played, and was relevant– even rings were… read more

Autumn Bound : A Summer for the Books

September 17, 2013

With just four days left until Autumn kicks the door in, I recently had a moment to reflect back on a Summer that turned out to be one of the most playful and gratifying in recent years. From concerts to ball games, camping to Micky Mouse, Sunset Boulevard to Yosemite, the last 14 weeks have… read more

“The Beard” in LA : Let The Jokes Begin

July 31, 2013

It was in the wee hours of July 21 that my morning co-host exposed me to the now viral, shirtless selfie of 70-year-old Geraldo Rivera. As visually horrific and mystifying as that experience was, it was a Tuesday sports headline that ultimately triggered my gag reflex. The Los Angeles Dodgers this week offered former San… read more
