Brad Paisley’s ‘Beat This Summer’ Video – A Sweet Look at Summer Romance

As the temperature gets warmer, my mind goes back to the summer before I turned 17. That is when I experienced love for the first time. NOOOO, not THAT kind of love - I was a good girl. ;- ) I mean the first butterflies, first kiss...(ok, MAKE OUT) first attempt at a relationship. His name was David and I fell for him so bad. The summer I shared with him will always be one of the best memories of my life.

In Brad Paisley's 'Beat This Summer' video, he goes back to first love and sweet memories. It's awesome. Check it out...

He TOTALLY would have quizzed her just like this...

Why Are Expanded Background Checks for Potential Gun Owners a Bad Thing?

This has been a very difficult week in light of the bombs at the Boston Marathon, the explosion at the fertilizer plant in Waco, TX. and yesterday's defeat in the Senate of a bill that would have expanded background checks to purchase a gun and banned the sale of some semi-automatic weapons like military assault weapons. My question to the Senate is, what's wrong with expanded background checks?

Does the Word Easter Mean Religion?

It is Good Friday and Leslie and I got into a spirited discussion with listeners this morning about a story out of Washington State with regard to using the word 'Easter' with eggs, candy and egg hunts.

The Easter Bunny Has Been Spotted in the Tri-State

On the show this morning, we had a lengthy discussion about Easter. It involved everything from Easter candy to a debate on whether to take the word 'Easter' out of egg hunts. Which, by the way, got VERY heated. I will address THAT over the weekend. :-) Any way, I mentioned that I had actually seen the Easter Bunny hopping around in downtown Evansville hiding his eggs. A listener has ALSO seen the furry little guy, but he wasn't hopping around. He even took a picture.
