  • VOTE!

    I might be a rare voter these days - but I actually LIKE to vote on Election Day. There's just something very exciting about being able to cast your vote on election day. We hear so much about the presidential election - and it's an important election - but don't forget there are also other people running for office. And in Wichita we're also voting on water fluoridation. There are some important decisions to be made so do your part and VOTE!

  • WOWeeee from Nashville Part 2

    Shoot! What a few days I've had here...you'll be hearing what I've been doing soon. Interviewing, interviewing, interviewing. It's really a crazy thing to do; you have about five minutes with each artist with no time to prepare before you talk - so you better be ready going in.

  • "Crazy Train" bluegrass style? Check this OUT!

    A LOT of artists have stopped by KFDI over the years and played for us - and we had an artist come by the other day who just really impressed me.

  • So what do Gary Allan, The Blue Angels and my niece Caitlyn have in common???

    I saw them ALL last weekend! In San Francisco no less. AND I also saw a new artist, Kacey Musgraves AND Alcatraz!

  • You HAVE to watch this - best Grand Ol' Opry invitation EVER!!!!!!

    I must say, I watched this a couple times and cried both times. I think Darius Rucker is an amazing artist and to see his reaction is priceless. And it will make you cry too. :)

  • Thank you McConnell AFB!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What an absolutely incredible show this past weekend. I can't thank them enough for putting it on. I go every year they host an Open House and every year I am absolutely blown away. Going to the open house makes me proud, patriotic, humbled and absolutely overwhelmed. I was like a little kid taking video - so here are some of my highlights.

  • Ghost Tours in Delano!!!

    I'll admit it - I love ghost stories. I love ghost shows. I love "Celebrity Ghost Stories", "The Haunting", "Ghostly Encounters"..."My Ghost Story" and on and on. Yes, I watch them all. Actually, I lived in a haunted house when I was a kid for six years! You'd think that after that I wouldn't be so fascinated but maybe that is exactly why I AM fascinated!

  • Walk with Buddy and me this Saturday!

    Buddy and I would LOVE to see you this Saturday at Woodard Mercantile for the First Annual Shelly Poynter Memorial Dog Walk...

  • Fun Times with Easton Corbin!

    In honor of Easton's new CD "All Over The Road" coming out today - I thought I would repost a super funny, undercover, video we shot at the Listener Appreciation Show this year. I was chatting with Easton today and we talked about this and if you haven't seen it - you should. AND go buy the new CD...it's a straight-down-the-road COUNTRY CD. I really love his sound. Money well spent.

  • Buddy's Strange Addiction

    I got a new toy for Buddy. It's the weirdest toy ever and says that dogs love it. I was wondering if he would but he is obsessed with it - to the point I have to put it up because I don't think he'd ever quit playing with it. That said, it makes me laugh so hard to watch him play with it that I can't quit giving it to him!!!! Here's a video I shot of him...

  • Check out Love and Theft videos from the benefit concert!

    I loved that show. I mean, I LOVED that show. Stephen and Eric are terrifically talented and they brought some great musicians with them - Jason was on guitar and Hubert on drums. Literally, sitting on a drum box. And we raised almost $3200 and all of that money goes to the Christmas in a Box Postage Fund - that will send a LOT of boxes to the troops this Christmas Season...

  • My cute dog and my wonderful neighbors...

    I love my neighborhood. I have some of the best neighbors - and there are a couple ladies who live a couple houses down from me and I just love them. Katherine lives there with her 91-year-old mother (who is still quite cantankerous!) and they have a Treat Tree. They have a container that they put dog treats in for the neighborhood dogs. So twice every day, Buddy and I go to the Treat Tree. And if Buddy should see one of them he gets VERY excited. He obviously knows who puts the treats out for him.

  • I love happy dog stories...

    Primarily because I love dogs...but this story has such a happy ending! A happy story, yet where the heck was she for three years and how did she end up 830 miles from home??? No one will ever know but at least she's back at home now!

  • Have a great night out AND help the troops!

    Now what could be better than that? You go out and watch a terrific, acoustic show from Love and Theft and all the money we raise will send boxes to our Kansas troops deployed overseas for Christmas. Now THAT is a win/win!

  • Check out this video of "Pontoon"...you'll LOVE it!

    This is just fun to watch because you never know who is going to pop up next. Too FUN!!!! (And I'm super happy for Little Big Town too, they're really close to a #1 song and they deserve it!)

  • Please allow me to brag on my friend Orin Friesen!

    I just could not be more proud of my dear friend Orin. This honor could not be awarded to a nicer guy...and don't forget we play his Bluegrass show every Sunday morning on KFDI. I'm proud of you Orin!!!!!!!!!!

  • So what the heck is Taylor Swift's big announcement?

    We don't know either...but you will find out tonight at 6:00 our time with her live chat. She has "exciting news" that she wants to share tonight. My hunch is it has to do with a new single and album coming out. I could be totally wrong. I frequently am. She will also be taking questions from her fans too - if you want to ask her something you can submit them directly into the live social chat during the webcast using your YouTube account.

  • Ouch! But I can relate...

    Now I can't relate completely...I have never been in an Olympic diving event, or any Olympic event for that matter. But I did do a major back buster off the high board.

  • Buddy's Next Olympic Event - The Chute...

    OK, so maybe he broke the rules a bit. Usually when you compete you don't get so excited that you can't help yourself and you immediately do it again. But you see, Dog Olympics are just different that way. That and you can kind of go at your own pace...as you can see in the video.

  • Buddy's Olympic Trials

    If there were Dog Olympics I'm sure Buddy would be a fine contender - and maybe I'd get a trip to London to watch him compete! I don't know that he has the drive to actually get the gold - but at least he finished in fine form!!!!!
