I’m doing something this weekend I haven’t done in over 20 years: Seeing people with whom I went to high school!
My 25th reunion is here & I’ve decided to take the trip back to Hokes Bluff, Alabama to take part. They’ve had one or two
other reunions but we lived in California & I really wasn’t up for a 2,500 mile trip for a reunion. But now, at 43 years old & feeling
a little nostalgic, plus living much closer, I figure it’s time. Like anyone, I’m curious about my former classmates. Who will have changed the most? Who got heavy? Who got skinny? Who got bald? We were a small class so it won’t be any major throwdown, but
it should be fun to see adults who, the last time I saw them in person, were teens without a clue.
Have you done the 20+ year reunion? What were the biggest surprises? Any fights? Any hook-ups? I feel compelled to cause something to happen that will be remembered. I’ll keep you posted on what I decide & try to get pictures or video if the police are involved!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Relaxing around here. Although at one point on Saturday we did have 10 teenagers in our house. Yikes.
Watched a 9/11 special last night about the “Heroes Of The 88th Floor.” Basically how two regular guys who worked on that floor of the North Tower
of the World Trade Center helped save 77 people and inspired others to do the same. While we all thank fire, police, emt, military, etc., don’t forget
to thank the families of normal folks like you & me who did extraordinary things that day. How many of us would have stayed behind rather than go
down those stairs with our wives (which is what one of them did)? How many would fight to go up the stairs rather than down? How many would
sacrifice our lives to ensure that a few other people made it down? It was a remarkable, selfless act & the special was quite moving.
Kris & I saw it happen live. We followed the news & stayed on the air from 5:30 a.m. Pacific until well into the afternoon. We shared information &
encouragement, talking with listeners and letting them vent, cry & share. It was a day we’ll never forget & one of the rare opportunities two radio goofs
have the opportunity to do something that really matters: Help bring people together so healing may begin.

What’s up? Been busy here, had Danny Gokey on the show. His song “Secondhand Heart” is so good. A perfect song for anyone who has been divorced, gone through a break up, or lost a loved one. It really is amazing. Had a chance to hang with Tony and his family the other night which is always fun. We enjoyed a few episodes of “Hart To Hart” and few beverages.
We are getting into a busy time of year, Lady A, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean and more great stars are all on the show soon. We also are putting the final touches on how you can spend a week with us and some country folks having a great time! Can’t wait for the details of that to be released.
We’ve been adding some new stations to the family and really appreciate it. Hope you help spread the word. Yucca Valley, Ca.- KX96 ,Lewistown, Pa.- Star Country 96.7, and our latest Florence, S.C.- Wheelz Country. We have more coming. It’s very exciting.
Know anyone that is a webmaster? We use wordpress and are looking to revamp our site and need someone. If you know someone that is interested please let us know.
Had a chance to see country duo LOVE AND THEFT. They have a new cd produced by the famous Josh Leo coming in November. I was lucky enough to be at the studio and they played it for me. It’s REALLY GOOD. You will love it. While we were there Martina’s husband (owner of the studio) popped in and played us a remastered version of Thriller and Billie Jean by Michael Jackson that their is no way to describe. I may not hear for another year the sound was so loud and good!
Football season is ALMOST here. Can’t wait for my Crimson Tide to start the season. Who are you pulling for this year? Do you have any tailgate or gameday recipes that are MUST TRY. Let me know. Have a great day.
Thanks to Brantley Gilbert for stopping by this morning!

Hey! It’s been super hot around here the past few days and I’ve been trying to stay cool. Hope wherever you are, you have had better weather. I’m excited because most of my favorite shows are back with new episodes. The Closer (best show on TV), Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Entourage are all new. It’s Entourage’s last season so I’m bummed about that. (more…)
Whew. Busy couple weeks around here. Candy’s had special events at Anthropologie, Meredith has had her play (which wraps this weekend), Geoffrey’s
been working at his new job & I’ve been traveling (& will again next week). Glad to have a few days to enjoy home.
I have to say, seeing the sun today did me a world of good. I never thought I was someone whose mood was affected by the weather, but after so much bad stuff rolling through, I guess I am. Funny how such a seemingly small thing can lift your spirits so much.
My in-laws, like thousands of others, are still without power in Alabama. I’m still blown away by Mother Nature sometimes. My condolences to all who lost loved ones.
Hard to imagine storms like these that cause so much destruction and alter so many lives in just a few minutes. Please help your neighbors in any way you can.
I mentioned this on the air the other day but wanted to get it out here too. I’m so pleased Osama Bin Laden was killed, but I can’t say it’s a celebratory
feeling for me. Try as I might, I can’t get behind “celebrating” the death of another human, no matter how evil he may have been. That’s not to say I don’t
believe he had it coming. The dude was bad news & I’m so proud of our military & intelligence services for the job they did. I just think we were appalled when
we saw folks in the Middle East dancing in the streets over the problems in the U.S., so why should they feel any different when they see the same reactions happening
Counting the days for two things. The arrival of our oldest for a visit from San Diego & the opening of The Hangover Part 2. See the trailer HERE What are you looking forward to
as we head towards summer?
