  • 'Tis the Season of Giving!!!!

    I know how hard this year has been on local families. There have been so many people laid off in the Wichita area and so many of those families just don't have the extra money to make it a Merry Christmas for their kids. This is the time of year when those of us who can step up and help out those who can't. Even if it's just a small toy for a toddler that's one toy a little boy or girl wouldn't have otherwise.

  • People who are WAY more talented than me...

    I've always been a music lover - just not a great musician! I do play piano - for myself only - and I did play clarinet for two years and I have no idea why I quit. I seem to have fond memories of me playing the clarinet. But you couldn't be in the marching band if your only instrument was the piano. (However, now that I said that I really would like to see how you might push a piano around a football field!)

  • Top 10 Countdown!!!

    This week on Wednesday and Thursday I will be doing my yearly countdown of MY Top 10 CDs of 2010. And it is TOUGH!!! There were so many good CDs that came out this year and I keep debating and debating which CDs will be on the list and what order! I definitely know my Number One fact, I had a super secret interview with "the artist" two weeks ago.

  • Dogs in snow video

    Since we have a lot of beautiful snow today, someone posted this and it makes me laugh. If only we had hills and I could teach Buddy to do this!!!

  • Check out this Keith Urban video I took!!!

    When I was in the Nashville I had the opportunity to go to a Keith Urban acoustic performance!! I immediately bypassed the food and drinks and went straight to the front of the stage. (Everyone else was still eating!) Needless to say, I had a great spot. The guy to his left is Dan Huff, his producer. I think Dan has worked on most of Keith's CDs. The guy to his right has played with Keith Urban since their Ranch days. This is his new single "Without You"...ENJOY!

  • More Chris Young...

    There are very few artists I can tell you exactly when I became a fan. I can tell you exactly when I became a Chris Young fan.I was watching Nashville Star and it was original song night and Chris Young sang "Drinkin' Me Lonely". It was one of those songs I fell in love with immediately. So when he was in the studio, I asked him to play it. It gives me goosebumps! (And that 12-pack of Blue Moon next to him was a little thank you gift from me!)

  • Check out Brett Eldredge!

    I'm really excited that Brett Eldredge is on the line up for our Listener Appreciation Show this year. (Starring CHRIS YOUNG!) As soon as I saw him perform here I was pushing for him to open the show. I just really liked him. He's a great songwriter and a great performer and I hope you like him as much as I do. I actually did something that day I never do with a new artist - I had him sing his new single live in the studio. This song really touches my heart and I knew he had written it too and I thought it would be really cool to hear him sing it - and it was.

  • St. Jude Radiothon Day One

    First off, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who donated today. I was so touched by all of the donations. I am so lucky to be in a situation to where I can help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by being on the air and getting the word out about the amazing things they do. But it's tough! It's so hard to be in a room by yourself all day immersed in it and just hoping the right words come out; hoping that you say something that motivates someone to call and hoping that the phones in the conference room are ringing. (We can't hear them in the studio.)

  • Is it March 26th yet? Check out this video...

    As you know, I've been following Chris Young since his Nashville Star days and I am SO happy he's finally getting the recognition he deserves. He has a new CD coming out and his first single off that new CD is my new favorite song. I'm hoping he plays it like this at our Listener Appreciation's an awesome version with just him and his guitar!

  • Laughing Feet

    I love my friend Jenny Mitchell's big heart.

  • Lost and Stray Animals

    I can't tell you how much my heart was breaking when I heard about the poor dog stuck at the Canal Route this week. Despite numerous people calling Animal Control the animal wasn't rescued until Brian and Kellie put it on the air. Perhaps it was a coincidence.
