In 2005, we came up with an idea to honor local police officers who had made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their communities. We called it "Blue Friday" and since then we have been raising money each year to help support the families of those brave men and women who lost their lives protecting ours. This year will be our 12th year and the actual Blue Friday live morning broadcast will be April 29 at Hannaford on Wolf Road. We would love for you to plan on stopping by with a donation or to purchase any of the great items "Blue Friday Of NY" will have on-hand.

Before all of that though, we kick things off THIS Monday night. Bethany and I will be guest bartending at the 99 Restaurant in Wilton, just off Exit 15. We will be there from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and would LOVE to see you stop by for a drink, or even dinner. Last year we met so many great listeners and even made some new friends, this year I hope it's you.

I guess I should also let you know that Marissa from middays here on WGNA and Matty Jeff from afternoons will be at the 99 Restaurant on Wolf Road in Colonie. I suppose you could go see them too.

Don't forget to make plans to visit either location this Monday night and let's get Blue Friday kicked off right. Let's hope it is yet another successful year.
