Thanks for reading my blog. Both of you. I hope you find some points of humor or entertainment in them, and if you don't, well...email me some! I am always looking for more. By the way, my boss just told me that I'm not sharing enough information about myself. He wants a bio. So, in the interest of any of your curiosity and for a little more job security, here I go:
Hobbies: Radio. Although I am seeking another to supplement.
What I Do In My Free Time: WHAT?
Favorite Foods: Pretty much anything that doesn't make the kitchen stink after it's cooked.
Favorite Singers/Bands: Coldplay, Jars of Clay, Hillsong, Train, Colbie Caillat, Sting, Eagles, Chicago.
Favorite Women: My two girls.
Favorite Men: My two boys.
Favorite TV shows: American Idol, Fringe, Burn Notice, Swamp People, Fox News, The NEW Two and a Half Men.
Favorite Movies: Romance, Sci-fi and comedy. The trifecta. (Yep, I like CHICK FLICKS...don't judge me.) Favs include Star Trek, You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, Dumb and Dumber, Caddyshack, Rat Race, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Airplane!
Political View: He said WHAT?
Religious View: If Jesus can save me, He can save anybody.
Favorite interview: It's a three way tie. Billy Preston, Kenny Loggins and James Taylor. Three of the nicest guys you could ever meet. The late Billy was the best in making me feel comfortable when I was a little nervous.
Favorite concerts: Billy Joel and Elton John. Maroon 5 and Train. Chicago's still got it, but I think the late Dan Fogelberg wins out in the "older school" category.
Favorite Quote: Phillipians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Favorite job: This one! Love playing your favorite songs.
Someone once told me that working out is FUN!
Here's elyptical candid photo from my 14-year-old daughter.
So, what's a sweaty DJ to do?? Go to Jared and ask him...He just told me "eat fresh." What a company guy.
Hey, shouldn't we be judging a gumbo cook off or something??
Andrew Garfield took a break from filming The Amazing Spiderman to play a pick-up game with some NYC inner-city kids on an outdoor court...IN FULL COSTUME! Check it out!
I mean, c'mon. LOOK at the ingredients here . You just can't go wrong with lots of sugar, evaporated AND condensed milk, peanut butter, and 10 crushed Butterfinger bars. But here's a word of warning...Stash some away for yourself. Because if you have a church ice cream social or family gathering this holiday weekend, count on it to be the FIRST freezer to run out! And please avoid the temptation to have your weight, blood sugar or cholesterol checked immediately after consumption!
Feel to copy, paste and SHARE!
1 CUP SUGAR
1 EAGLE BRAND CONDENSED MILK
1 CAN EVAPORATED MILK
1 CUP CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER
1/2 GALLON MILK
8-9 BUTTERFINGER CANDY BARS
Beat eggs; add sugar, then peanut butter. Add Eagle Brand, beating as you add. Add evaporated milk, then enough milk according to your freezer-1/2 gallon is just right for mine. Add vanilla to taste and blend. Crunch up Butterfinger bars--kids and dads love doing this-but watch out for needless snacking-then add to the mix (the freezer movement will distribute through the ice cream). Makes one gallon.
And you thought Mark Zuckerberg was rich.
Ok radio campers, here's live Paul McCartney footage from the kick-off of his Out There tour on Saturday night in Orlando. It's Sir Paul performing Helter Skelter from that show.
Now, the Way Back Machine will take us to the anniversary of his song With A Little Luck reaching number one on the Billboard charts 35 years ago today. Here's that video from 1978.
Can you believe that dude in the pic below is almost 83? If my math is right...Let's see -- May 17th, 1930. After seeing the pic, you'll understand why I say, "I'll have what HE's having!" Indulge me as I wish my Dad...Papa Floyd...a happy 83rd birthday.
Here he is at lunch last week offering his wise counsel to moi...as I recall what he said when I first got started in radio,
"Son, from what I know, the average DJ only works about 4 hours a day and worries the OTHER 20 hours how long he'll be working only 4 hours a day! "
I like the camera in this iphone...Check out what I captured in the past week or so.
