Not Because They HAD To…but because They WANTED to.

Posted in: Uncategorized

Its Friday and I need your help. Until midnight tonight I need you to help some folks that are in the midst of the worst moments of their lives.

Last Saturday, 30 American service members, most of them Navy Seals, including several members of SEAL Team 6 which killed Osama Bin Laden, lost their lives in a helicopter crash! Now, we are asking you to help us here at ENTERCOM UPSTATE help their families by going to myupstateperks.com and donating to the Navy Seal foundation.

I’m glad I work for a company that thinks of others and makes it a priorty. Things are tough and times are tight. If you can give I would appreciate it….very much.

Don’t do it because I think its a good idea…but because you do.

Back to school…..almost, and memories.

Posted in: Uncategorized

Next week most of the counties in the upstate will return to school and as I rode down the street in my neighborhood I saw the kid that lives next door. He was in his front yard with yo-yo and was having a ball.

It reminded me of my grade school days and my time with a yo-you.  Yes…..we had yo-yo’s WAY BACK THEN.  I was, at best average, while others were very good.  BUT…none of us came close to this guy. 

As you watch this, think of your kids (or grand kids).  Any of them have potential to be a yo-yo champ?

He was a character….and had character. Fred Imus.

Posted in: Uncategorized

Over the weekend one of the more entertaining men passed away.  Fred Imus.  Now that name probably means nothing to you but I loved to listen to him when he was a guest on the Don Imus radio show.  Fred ws 69, and was found in his mobile home Saturday.  Below is part of the the New York media reporting on his death.

Fred Imus, younger brother of WABC morning host Don Imus and a long-time songwriter and radio host himself, was found dead Saturday at his home in Tucson, Ariz. He was 69.

He was reportedly found in his trailer after he failed to show up for “Fred’s Trailer Park Bash,” a weekend show he cohosted with Don Collier and “Missy” on Sirius XM‘s Outlaw Country channel.

In 1976 he and a fellow railroad worker named Phil Sweet cowrote “I Don’t Want To Have To Marry You,” a No. 1 country hit for Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius. It was voted song of the year by Music City News.

Fred collaborated with Don on the 1997 book “Two Guys Four Corners,” which featured photographs and reminiscences of the Southwest, and with Daily News columnist Mike Lupica on 1998’s “The Fred Book,” which featured Fred’s thoughts on life.

Fred was best known to New Yorkers and radio listeners as a laconic, droll, funny and sometimes ornery guest on his brother’s syndicated show.

Hot Temps…..and Cold Cash!!! $5,000 Winner is Melony Petty.

Posted in: Uncategorized

Hot as hell.
Blinding sun.
$5,000 to one winner.
The stage was set.

I have no idea what we were doing..besides being stupid.

Just a portion of the crowd.  $5,000 draws a few folks.


 I think I just found my Christmas card pic for this year. :)

The Bud Bar. A popular place with both Beer and Shade.

$5,000 winner, Melony Petty…and 4 guys hitting her up for a loan.

It takes a lot of skilled people to put on an event like this. Until THEY show up, his is who we had. :)

A Great Weekend with Laurens Electric!!

Posted in: Uncategorized

Saturday dawned cooler than previous days…by over 15 degrees. Perfect for a 100 mile poker run ride.

The folks at Laurens Electric give back to the upstate by holding a number of charity fund raisers and in the summer its their Annual Poker Run.

Its great to see a business that cares about its customers and its clear LEC does.

A great crowd had a great time and I got to hang out with MY PEOPLE!!!! :)

I love getting a chance to see members of the Rock101 family.
