Gabe, Thelma, and Dad

gabe_thelma_dadSeeing this pic right before going to bed last night was like finding a gift after Christmas, seeing a cotton candy sunset, and getting a quarter from the tooth fairy all at the same time.  That’s my Uncle Gabe, my Aunt Thelma, and my dad.

Return of the Modern Rock 500

97XBAM! A few hours ago I found out that WOXY’s Modern Rock 500 Countdown is coming back one more time! All of my favorite DJ’s who went down with the ship when the station went off the air 20 years ago will be there too! I’ll get to hear Mike Taylor, Barb Abney, Shivvy, Sledge, Joe Long, Bryan Jay Miller, and MANY others. Honestly I get happy anytime I hear the word “BAM!” because it reminds me of WOXY and all the great music and voices I heard there.

A Change Is Gonna Come

01 martyAre you ready for the time shift?  This weekend most of us will travel into the future exactly one hour.  Hawaii and Arizona will stay in the past while the rest of the United States saves the living daylights for the next 8 months.  I wonder if residents living near time zones that separate Pacific, Mountain, Central, and Eastern time zones ever get used to it.  I imagine that they travel through time faster than a clock ticks off the minutes.  In my home state someone driving west from Brewster to Goodland can go back in time in the span of 20 miles.  It would be cool if there was vertical map of cities that straddle the time zones, and tourist attractions with a time travel theme could thrive to bolster those rural communities.  Until then standard time will resume November 5.
