Rain Songs.

I sat in the studio this morning watching it rain.  For about 8 seconds I considered turning Mid-Missouri’s most listened to radio station into my personal Ipod, and playing all my favorite rain songs.  Then I remembered that much like a snowy morning, you’re not having near as much fun trying …

NAME THAT COWBELL!

Ok. I had our Cowbell out on location a few times this past weekend, and a listener asked what her name was… and I was like “uh – I don’t know.”  She then told me that, like a boat, it’s unlucky to have a cowbell without a name.  Therefore, I’m asking for your help with …

Whose Gonna Fill Their Shoes…

Prove Your Age…

Sure you’ve seen this email before or maybe even heard it used in a commercial on your favorite station:)  Even to me, a young’n, it seems crazy how much times have changed in the past twenty years

A Very Haggard Birthday.

Yesterday was my 41st birthday.  It was considerably less eventful than last years, which is fine.  Birthdays like last years should only come around every 40 years or so.  I’m not much on planning, but as I wrapped up yesterday I got to thinking I couldn’t have drawn it up much …

I had a great idea as I was reading this article about how Crawford, TX is getting ready for Jenna Bush’s wedding.  The idea is probably worth a lot of money, but I’ll let you have it for free!
