Future Mother In Law Rips Bride in E Mail [AUDIO]

I happened upon another blog today written by a guy at our sister station, Q103. The odd thing about it is I read the blog and I felt weird that I didn't agree with him at all. It's about a woman who writes her future daughter in law a "rude" e mail and it gets out on the web. BJ, the author of the blog (and our traffic guy on the Sean and Richie show) thinks that this is a very mean e mail and this woman deserves "anything she gets" from it becoming public. I don't know why but I kind of agreed with most of the points the woman made. Here is what we said on the air about it.

Commodore 64 Coming Back

Talk about a trip down memory lane. Back in the 80s, I remember when a couple of friends of mine were the first to buy a home computer. When they told me about it, I asked them why. They told me because they could do some personal stuff on it, like writing letters or maybe categorizing music lists. I chuckled and said "I don't know why you really need one." I believe they had a Commodore 64. Well, The Commodore 64, the classic personal computer from the eight-bit '80s, is making a comeback. Sort of.

Too Lazy To Mow Your Lawn? Now There’s Automower [VIDEO]

Poor afternoon WGNA personality Jake Thomas.  As former President Bill Clinton would say, "I feel his pain".  In one of Jake's recent blogs he was lamenting over the fact it was the beginning of lawn mowing season.  He was looking to purchase a riding mower.  Dumb move, Jake.  Takes up too much room in the garage.  Plus, you have to go out there and actually sit on it.  There's a better way--AUTOMOWER!

A Thank You Song To WGNA FM Facebook Friends [AUDIO]

Where’s Your Music Collection? Look Up In The Cloud

Remember the days of rifling through your living room shelves to find a great CD to play?  Or maybe you'd buy one of those plastic tree stands with the slots in it  that stores 200 of the latest and greatest Country CDs that feature music you heard on WGNA?  Can you say OLD SCHOOL?-

Hi Tech Scouts Using Smart Phones And Credit Cards

Scouting was a part of my growing up, and, although I'm sure I resisted going to all of the meetings, I ended up enjoying learning how to do important things like CPR and tying knots (I still remember how to make a sheepshank---anybody?).

Don’t Throw Your Vinyl Records Out!

Vinyl Records.  Those were those round things with the hole in them that were placed on a spinning round turntable thingy.  Anybody???   We almost threw ours out at the radio station, but cooler heads prevailed, I guess--THANK GOD!!

I guess feelings of nostalgia are signs that you are old (getting there), but I really miss albums

Cowboys Like Technology! I Have Proof! (AUDIO)

I've been lucky enough to have been at WGNA for--can it really be?- 23 years now.  And I can remember distinctly being told not to talk too much about technology on our show because "country people don't have computers".  Holy Crapola, Batman!
