Radio Day - Storytelling Part 2

Written by
With National Radio Day this week, we have been chatting about the essence of the biz.  I refer to what I do as storytelling, and it is.  But few are born natural storytellers. And for those who are granted the gift of gab, there are always those who help propel you to another level. Again, when I was a young broadcaster in Columbus in the early and mid-eighties, at WRMZ doing the morning show,  I…

Radio Day - Storytelling Part 1

Written by
Tuesday was National Radio Day.  I have been doing this for 38 years, and this seems like a good time to pull the curtain back on this a bit.  Many people ask me what I call my job.  I don't like DJ, or Disc Jockey.  That is a very different and great skill set, that I don't have. That is very different than what I do.  There are other names, but Morning Personality, or Morning…

Dinosaur Dinner?

Written by
For the first time in a long time, I was lucky enough to go to the Cleveland Natural History Museum.  I was there for a formal dinner with Windy, and it was sensational. Cool place, and the food was great.  Plus, how often do you get to eat dinner with a Tyrannosaurus Rex?    Our Table Was Right There!  And we got to see Balto! The REAL Balto, (although stuffed) but the one of the…

It's Tribe Time - NOW!

Written by
It's hard not to get caught up in what's going on with the Tribe right now. Erasing a 12 game defecit in the Major Leagues is pretty much unheard of, but they have done it.  What a season it has been so far!!  The past day or so has not been the best, but the Tribe is getting ready to make a strong stretch run. The Tribe sure puts on a GREAT show! I know…

Worth The Trip

Written by
Just in case you have never gone to this place, here's some information so you may. Maria's Field of Hope in Avon is a fantastic place to see, visit, take pictures, and simply reflect.   This is a really beautiful place! - Windy introduced me to the idea of going last year, as I had never heard of it. It's in an area that I know well, and one she doesn't. We made the trek…

Best I've Ever Seen!

Written by
I've been around this radio stuff for a few decades, worked many places around the country and have been a part of a lot of good radio promotions invented by good people.  But I have to say, that the WQMX Send Me Backstage T-shirts are about the best I've ever seen. We have been doing this a long time, and it seems to get better and better.  It's great to see all the colors of…

Play For The Guy Next To You!

Written by
Last week when the Browns played their first preseason game, my favorite moment was when Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi, a guy that walked on to the Browns camp uninvited (under strange circumstances) ran a kick back for a TD.  What a terrific underdog story. The entire Browns team ran after him and mobbed him with excitement.  That shows me the team is on the right track.  Football can be unique that way.  GO BROWNS!  (Cover Pic -…

Drive Around The Block?

Written by
I like all kinds of music. Yes, I have made a proud living on Country Radio, but most people in my industry like many different styles. Last week, I went to the Doobie Brothers concert at Blossom, and I was reminded of one of my favorite songs of all time!  China Grove - By the Doobies.   BTW I have always been a big DB fan!  It felt good to hear them play it in concert!…

All For The Hall!

Written by
Went to the Enshrinement at the Pro Football Hall Of Fame last week, and I hope it's not my last time to do that.  WOW!  The changes at the Hall are amazing, and what is coming too is also incredible.  We were also very impressed with the new Tom Benson Stadium.  What a fantastic facility!   The Hall and Tom Benson Stadium are simply great!   Of course we saw lots of cool things, and…

County Fair Fun!!

Written by
Windy and I were lucky enough to go to the Jake Owen Concert at the Medina County Fair last week, and man am I glad we did that!   Blossom is great, and so are all of the amazing music venues we have around here.  But I was reminded that sometimes a good 'ole county fair concert can be just as fun. Jake Owen is a singer who can sing both ends of the spectrum…
