The reason I got into radio was to make a difference. I'm personally involved with many local organizations, as well as the hundreds we work with through the station. Here are just a few of the groups I spend more time helping:
University of Iowa Children's Hospital, CMN, and Dance Marathon
The ARC of East Central Iowa
Knights of Columbus
Marion Youth Baseball
I enjoy coaching baseball, playing tennis, kickboxing, listening to music, playing board games with my kids, riding rollercoasters and taking long walks on the beach.
My favorite teams that I follow:
· Minnesota Vikings Football
· Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
· Univ of North Dakota Fighting Sioux Hockey
· Linn Mar Lions
· Iowa Hawkeyes
· Minnesota Twins & Cincinnati Reds Baseball
Do you have a pet? Do you torture it by dressing it up for Halloween. My family insists on including the dog and cat as part of our Halloween costume plans. The dog gets to accompany us around the neighborhood and the cat is chained up near the door so the trick or treaters can see him. Needless to say I'm on the fence about this. Dpending on the year, sometimes it's cute, other times I would vote to use the costume money for wings and beer. Saw this video of two dogs who look like they have been sedated so their owners could make a video. No pets really want to dress up , do they?
No need to get a license or shots for this puppy. It's an 8 minute live version redition of the song 'Black Dog' with Robert Plant and Juldeh Camera from Gambia. It was recorded this summer in Boston.

Gibson just put out the top 10 list of the greatest Supergroups of all time. The criteria as I see it are groups who actually got along, no ego, no drama. Who did they leave out that belongs on the list. Maybe Damn Yankees, Humble Pie, ELP, Power Station, Mike & Mechanics,Bad English, Templ of the Dog.. who am I forgetting.. I'm sure there are more, just maybe not as popular. I think Clapton had 3 or more bands he was in too.
Here's their list in no certain order: Cream, Bad Company, C,S,N&Y, Chickenfoot, The Hiwaymen, Blind Faith, Asia, The Firm, Traveling Wilbury's, Them Crooked Vultures.
Do you watch scary movies with the light on or off? I like it really dark. But did you know that the light doesn't have as much to do with your watching experience than sound does. The sound actually controls more of your emotion during a movie than the light. Test it our. Watch a scary movie with the sound off. It's not very scary at all.
