Weekday Afternoons

So, the Winter Olympics are just about over.  What will I do with my evenings when they are done and I'm all caught up on the DVRed events?  I guess I'll go back to all the other programs I have recorded and get caught up on them!  But, some thoughts of the Olympics so far.  I've always had my favorite events...skiing, luge, bobsled, ski jumping, snow boarding.  But, this Olympics, I've found myself kind of wrapped up in the Curling.  I know, how can that happen.  I really feel that it is the thinking that is involved.  In that aspect, I liken curling to pool.  It's the strategy that goes into a shot.  Not necessarily going for the points, but, how to keep the opponent from scoring.  It is a very strategic game.  Another thought...why does the USA suck so much when it comes to the Winter Olympics?  The summer games, we expect to get medal in darned near everything.  In the winter games, it's like, "Oh well, we weren't supposed to medal in that event anyway."  Why is it so different between the winter and summer games.  We have winter and snow in the US just like we have summer, but our winter athletes aren't as good as winter athletes in Europe.  I wonder why that is?  Nuff said.

My radio career started right here in Hutchinson back in 1979, between my freshman and sophomore years in college.  I was studying Communications with emphasis on Radio/TV Broadcasting.  During my career, I've worked in Hutchinson, Wichita, Emporia, and Salina.  Got my first job on a country station in 1986 when KSKU in Hutchinson was sold and became KZSN.  We moved the studio to Wichita.  From Wichita I moved to Emporia worked for a short time before moving back to Hutch.  After 3 years, I moved to Salina.  After about 6 years there, I moved back to Hutch.  I llive here now for 17 years.  I married my wife, Julie, 12 years ago.  When I'm not working you can find me watching tv at home, playing bingo, playing golf, or riding my Goldwing Trike.  I'm a member of the GWRRA (Goldwing Road Riders Assn.)  I began doing public address announcing for the Hutch High Salthawks during the football season and will continue during the basketball season.  I've been at Country 102.9, this time, since 2000.  Really enjoy what I do and I love Country music.  My favorite artists are Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and as I go back a few years with a classic artist...I love Johnny Horton.  I plan on continuing doing this as long as I enjoy doing it or until people around this building don't want me around anymore.  They'll have to pry the headphones off my ears to get me out of here.
