Yesterday was my boss' birthday...so why should I care? Read this & you'll see why I love this industry!
I've decided I'm going to just keep turning 49 as long as I'm in Radio! (This was the 5th time...) This business has a way of keeping people young--at least between their EARS. (...don't even go there!!)
Working with all of you is a privilege and an honor. Seeing people grow and develop in every department, entertaining & informing the audience, getting results for clients and impacting our community are truly gifts that many business owners never have a chance to enjoy. Because of your hard work, I see those things every week.
I'm very lucky! I hope I NEVER grow up...and have to get a REAL job. And I hope YOU don't either.

Hang on, I'll get it posted to the web soon!
Amazing how 1 week can change your brain's position.

Please keep us in your thoughts
We had some tests done and knew she wasn't healthy, and now she is in a better place. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Julie, I love you.

It's official: I can do radio!
Just got back from the Great Lakes Broadcasting Conference where the Michigan Association of Broadcasters gave their Broadcast Excellence Awards. I won 3 of them and have the winning pieces posted here.

Hey boss...how 'bout that raise for your Award Winning Creative Services Director? What's that? But I didn't ride in here on a horse...

Thanks for the Support...
From my pal Wolfie at the office: He says that if I were having a boy, I'd have to worry about 1 penis in the neighborhood. But since I'm having a girl...well, I'll have to worry about ALL the penises in the neighborhood.
Thanks Dave. Ya ass!

It's a GIRL!
OK, now what do I do? You think I didn't know what the hell to do with a boy, I know even less to do with a girl! This is shaping up to be one helluva adventure.
The pictures we got today are pretty fuzzy...she was moving around quite a bit and apparently sleeping on her stomach. Not the best pose from our angle. We'll head back in a month to take more pictures and try to get a shot of her face. We did see feet, spine, heart, brain & other major parts...and they all looked just perfect!
Stay tuned for more details!
