I am originally from Michigan, born in Detroit, but I’ve been here in ENC for about 16 years now. I love radio, love music, and love being involved in things happening in the community. If I can make you laugh by saying something silly, make your day better by playing your song, or just be there to chat when you need me, then I am a happy camper. I can’t imagine doing anything other than radio, and frankly, I’m not qualified to do anything AT ALL, so this is the perfect gig for me.
I’m on the air Monday through Friday, 10am-2pm. Got the Workforce Block at 10 – a big looooong block of uninterrupted tunes (this is when I troll Facebook!); the all Request Classic Pigout at noon, which is when you get to shout out what you wanna hear at 252-633-1065 or 866-484-1065, and then Live 1 at 1. Thursday is my favorite day though – that’s when the Theme Park takes over the Pigout, and all the songs have to follow the theme. Could be one word band names, guitar greats, songs with day and/or night in the title……I make YOU do the work, and you sure do keep me hopping, with suggestions coming at me from every direction.
I hit the jackpot in the dude lottery and got married in 2015. Maybe you’ve met my husband when we’ve been out at a station event – I call him my “handler”….lol. He has infinite patience with my chattering and three second attention span.
I love sports and regularly lose my voice hollering at the TV, which cracks my husband up. I cried when Peyton Manning retired. I cried when Steve Yzerman left the Red Wings. I cry when the Patriots win anything, because, well, I just don’t like the Patriots. I think Tony Dungy is an incredible human being – you should read his books.
We have a rescue pup named Poe. She is a black and white mixed breed ball of energy – pit bull, lab, terrier, boxer. After we lost our mastiff, Loki, we decided to downsize, so we went from 170lbs to about 45lbs for Miss Poe. She’s only a little bit spoiled. Okay, she’s really spoiled. Oy, you got me….she runs our household.
I am addicted to Jeopardy.
I am a foodie. I would eat myself into a coma if nobody stopped me. My husband and I have a passion for Italian cooking, and we spend the occasional evening drinking wine, making pasta and whipping up chicken saltimbocca or some other delicious dish.
Travel is my favorite hobby, if that can be called a hobby. I want to go EVERYWHERE and have been fortunate enough to visit London, Paris, Florence, Rome, Venice, Mexico, the Bahamas, Canada and many of the states in the US.
I love animals and would have a farm if I could.
I kissed the Stanley Cup.
I adore the beach. The sound of the ocean is my lullaby.
I love the smell of horse manure.
I always have my nose in a book. Favorite authors: Leon Uris (tops the list), Richard Adams, Lee Child, Chuck Klosterman, Robert Ludlum, Sue Grafton……I could go on all day!
A digital artist in New York named Max Kolomatsky has been helping out random people by redesigning their flyers for things like cleaning and babysitting services. The kind with a phone number at the bottom that you tear off. He does it for free and doesn’t even tell them. For example, he found a boring…
A four-year-old kid left his favorite stuffed animal at a Holiday Inn Express in Virginia. So employees went the extra mile to get it back to him. But first, they did a photoshoot and posed it in different spots, like the gym and the front desk……… A 30-pound rabbit that was rescued from a meat market…
Back in December, a doctor in the U.K. put her diamond ring in the pocket of her scrubs before a procedure and forgot about it. By the time she realized, the hospital had already sent her scrubs out to get cleaned. But then another doctor at a different hospital 100 miles away ended up in…
Brian May never really liked “Under Pressure”, because a lot of his guitar parts were removed. (Full Story) Robert Plant performed “Stairway to Heaven” last October at a cancer charity event. It was his first time performing it in 16 years. He called that performance cathartic and a trial by fire. He’s not sure if…
This is a good news, bad news story: Back in November, a lady in Florida got gored by a bull. But it ended up being a good thing, because scans at the E.R. spotted lung cancer. So being gored ended up saving her life………..A guy in Michigan bought his first-ever lottery ticket and won half-a-million bucks. …
