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

Did I Mention That I am SO EXCITED for the Fair?

July 31, 2014

The Fair is  getting closer. It’s the last weekend before the fair and I can almost smell the corndogs. See all the lights and hear the kids screaming from the rides. I might even be looking forward to the dirt lines on my feet (okay, probably not). Today I’ll be shopping for the prizes for… 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

Are They Really Calling THIS Art?

July 30, 2014

I was perusing Facebook last night before going to bed  and saw the most ridiculous thing ever- and they were calling it “art.” It was a hipster guy on a leash, followed by a Chinese artist on a Segue. I think the term “art” has become entirely too loose. When I think of art, I… read more

River Time!

July 29, 2014

This is my preferred spot on summer evenings. It’s a great end to most days when it gets over 90. I have no air conditioning. And while I’m happy not to pay the electric bill, some days it would be really nice to have. However, I wouldn’t have as many days to enjoy at the… 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

Where Did the Summer Go?

July 28, 2014

I am very excited about the fair. It’s something I look forward to every year… but it also marks the end of the summer and the beginning of the school year. I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone! It seems like just a couple of weeks since we worked on the graduation party…… 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

Tim McGraw Fan Slap

July 23, 2014

I heard that this was “no big deal”,  of course that came from Tim McGraw’s people. But as he’s strutting down the catwalk amongst fans, one woman reaches out and  grabs his pant leg- and he clobbers her on the side of the head. Watch the video here…… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaDdhZ599lA

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

Great Parodies

July 14, 2014

I have seen many great parodies of some of the most popular songs on the radio and this one is no exception: A dad’s response to “Rude” by Magic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzyQx6AL1MQ

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
