Chris Stevens, on Northern Exposure: What is it about possessing things?
Back in 2016, Hit 105 on Facebook posted a series of funny “Shane” whiteboard signs like this. Apparently Shane also tends to send customers to other stores, and asks customers if this is their “final answer” when they place an order (at which point he lets them phone a friend).
westword.com has this great interview with Alfred Williams. He’s a former football player who played at the University of Colorado, and then played for the Broncos at the end of his career, helping them win two Super Bowls. These days he’s on the radio, and he’s great to listen to in the afternoon. He seems like a really nice guy, and I’ve wondered how he gets along with his radio partner, who occasionally doesn’t seem like a nice guy, and the article touches on that.
On my list to listen to: A TED Radio Hour discussion, Why Does Time Exist?
I was driving in western Kentucky around four o’clock on Friday morning, and I was able to get in radio stations from Arkansas, Iowa, Chicago, Cleveland, and Atlanta. That was pretty cool.
There’s a guy on a local radio station (104.3 The Fan) named Darren McKee (who guys by the name “D-Mac”), and he constantly uses a phrase that drives me crazy:
“To be honest with you ...”
As I wrote in my book, A Survival Guide for New Consultants, you should never use that phrase.
Why? Because using it for some sentences implies that you aren’t being honest with every other sentence that comes out of your mouth.
A note October 22, 2010: “I’m listening to the Armed Forces Radio Network while getting some work done at the Talkeetna Roadhouse.”
For those who have been waiting for it, Sandy Clough will be returning to 104.3 The Fan this coming Monday.
Update: July 20, 2016: According to the link I share below, Sandy Clough will be returning to 104.3 The Fan this coming Monday in a new time slot: 10am to noon, a time slot he occupied when I first moved to the Denver area. He will be replacing Cecil Lammey in that time slot, and much to my chagrin it appears that CJ and Stokley will continue in the noon-3pm time slot.
