Happy Groundhog Day!

Yep, it's that time of year again - where America wakes up early to find out if a rodent is going to say Spring is coming early or not, lol. I've never been like Phil Connors to travel to Gobbler's Knob to experience the whole day, and I don't put much into what the groundhog says when humans with computer technology can't even get it right!

Either way, Happy Groundhog Day whether you celebrate or not. And if you have seen the movie (who hasn't?), whenever you are in a restaurant and hear plates drop on the floor, say what I do..."Set that down anywhere!" :)

Boxing is Fun!

For the last few weeks I've been taking a boxing class and it's been an awesome experience! I've been wanting to try it for a long time, and I finally took the plunge after signing up for a gym membership at the start of the year. It's been super fun learning a new sport, and punching things is always a blast. I'm hoping to get stronger yet leaner, and have some good self defense moves along the way. Afterwards I feel so many different things. Proud, like I had an amazing workout, and a LOT of muscles that I didn't know I had been really sore. It really is a full body workout, and it's been a great start to the new year having a consistent routine!

I'm so looking forward to continuing my boxing journey and getting better along the way!

Farmer's Only

FarmersOnly.com had some very interesting commercials a number of years ago and a jingle you could sing along to.

It always infuriated me that Farmers were were generalized and labeled...  When most farmers are the salt of the earth, genuine good hardworking folk.  I mean, I'm sure you have listened to a country song before... Luke Bryan, Rodney Atkins, Montgomery Gentry and many others have had songs about farms and those that keep them working and thriving.

So I can only imagine what is coming with this next reality dating show.   'Farmer Wants A Wife' on Fox March 8th.

 I do appreciate that with Blake Shelton's Barmageddon and other shows.  Farmers are getting their own niche fame.

So what's on-deck next... the Farm-Dashians, the singing show Farm Voice... Then the talent show America's Got Tractors.   

Yellowstone sparked a more mid-western flaire even that of reality tv I guess.

And speaking of jingles, still trying to get this one about Farmers out of my head.

A Cleveland baseball icon silenced

A couple days ago, we learned of John Adams' death. If you have been a Cleveland baseball fan at any point since the '70s you know who he is. He was the guy with the drum sitting out in the bleachers who rarely missed a game. In fact, it's calculated he attended over 3,700 games since 1973!

Growing up here in the '90s and going to games I always thought it was a recording when I was little. Then my dad explained that nope, John Adams is sitting out in the bleachers doing that in person...I was amazed. I personally thought to myself I knew I couldn't do what he did - sit through all of those slow pitchers duels, the rain delays, extra innings etc. I'm glad he did though. It made for a very unique baseball experience at Progressive Field. Guardians games won't be the same without the sound of John's drum from the top of the bleachers in left field.

Calling hours are this Friday and his funeral is at St John's Cathedral in Downtown Cleveland on Saturday. John Adams was 71. RIP.

Last Call for Dry January!

It's the last day of Dry January! This is the first year that I've actually taken it seriously, and I think it was a great start to the new year! In all honesty I don't drink a lot, but I was in quite a few situations where I wish I could have. It honestly surprised me how often it came up. But I have an awesome support system full of people who are sober, and some who appreciated having a designated driver. I'm excited to do it again next year, and I'm also excited to have a nice drink this upcoming weekend. If you're dry, damp, or the DD cheers to you and have a great February!

More-gan Wallen

Well when you have a massive album coming out in March...  You can release 3 songs out of the gate.   

Morgan Wallen announced an extensive one today.  The 36 Track album called "One Thing At A Time"  will drop March 3rd.  He didn't really follow the name when he released 3 songs at a time.   I guess it could have been to promote the new tour but that sold out instantly with HARDY, ERNEST, Parker McCollum and Bailey Zimmerman on the bills.  Here are the 3 tracks to hold you over till the new album drops in March.

Tyler Hubbard on TV!

First of all, I have to say Happy Birthday to Tyler Hubbard! What an exciting time for him too! He just released his debut solo self-titled album on Friday and he has a made a couple of TV appearances in support of that album. This morning he was on Good Morning America, and last night he was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! On both shows he sang his current single, "Dancin' In The Country"!

Yeah, I dreamt that...pt.3

I had another one! Sometime on Monday I had a weird dream that was work related this time. In this one, all of us at WQMX went on a fieldtrip and took the station on the road...to Columbia,SC. HAHA

All of us were broadcasting from a 19th century themed inn that we were staying at. We were in the ballroom with a lot of locals hanging out and listening to us in person. Then, in the evening we would go to another room for movie night.

Let me tell you though...these people were STRANGE!!! lol. That's the only way I know how to describe it. At least my dreams keep me laughing!

WYNN - The End Of The Queen Of The Skies

SW small Logo Since 1968 the Boeing 747 has been the Queen Of The Skies passenger plane.  A gigantic wide bodied plane that changed many things about long distance flying with its huge size and distinctive front hump design.  Boeing will not make anymore of them.

They made about 1,600 over the years and it fought off others who tried to challenge it, like the Lockheed L-1011 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10.  It had a great safety record as well, plus it was so "American."   It will be replaced by the 777, The Dreamliners,  and others, as far as new production is concerned.  It dominated the skies for a half a century as the best wide bodied passenger plane on earth.

It was a mighty aircraft too, and for those who don't remember the NASA Space Shuttle Program - they used to fly the Shuttle back to Florida from California once in a while strappedon THE BACK OF A 747!!  Can you imagine being that pilot?

How Cool Is THAT?

Here is a cool article about it.

SW small Logo I got an e-mail from Jeremy a couple weeks ago asking where he could see some of my Memory Lane articles from a long while ago. They are all here at WQMX.com, but I have been doing this series for almost three years, so for the next couple weeks, I'll post some articles you may have missed. This is week two remembering some great country bands that I have written about over the years.  These bands all had GREAT success! 

And THANKS for reading and listening every week!
