How David Letterman, Alan Jackson and Mark McGuinn Helped Me Return to Normal on Air After the 9/11 Attacks

Today is the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City back in 2001, perhaps the darkest day in our history.  Leslie and I were reflecting this morning on where we were when the attacks happened and what we were doing. I was on the air on WKDQ when I heard a sound bite on the ABC newscast I was recording about a small plane hitting one of the World Trade Center towers. I was just coming out of a break, made the announcement about what I had heard and said we would have an update after the song, not having any clue of what had just occurred.

Farmers’ Almanac is Predicting a Snowy, Stinging Winter

Since it's SO hot outside, let's get our minds off of the heat and talk about winter!! First of all, just let me say the outdoors is my favorite place to be. Whether it's winter, spring, summer or fall, I want to be outside. I just can't tolerate extremes. Normal is more my thing. HAHA! I know what you are thinking. You just did a spit take. OK, fine, let me correct; normal WEATHER is my thing. You know, normal temps, rain, snowfall, etc. Because of this, I always try and prepare myself ahead of time for what may come with the Farmers' Almanac. Not sure I like what the farmer has to say about this Winter.
