Did You Know? A Speeding Ticket in Upstate NY Inspired Iconic Rock Song!
Did You Know? A rock legend recently explained how he was inspired to write one of the biggest 80's rock songs after he was caught speeding in Upstate NY while on his way from Albany Airport to Lake Placid for a show. Thinking that the speed limit back in the 1980s was 65 MPH, this lead-footed rocker gassed it up to 62 MPH, only to get pulled over.  Here's the rest of the story: The Lyrics "I

Ripe for the Pickin’ – GNA Pranks Listener Accused of Stealing Apples
Ripe for the Pickin’ – GNA Pranks Listener Accused of Stealing Apples
We got a great idea for a prank phone call from Angie, one our GNA listeners. She thought it would be funny if we called her husband Adam and questioned him about stealing apples on their most recent visit to the orchard.  While technically they didn't steal she did admit that they were a little wasteful,  taking a few bites from the fruit before discarding them.  Angie also told us that she and h

My GF’s Encounter With Alleged Sex Trafficker Allison Mack
A few years ago, I remember my girlfriend Samantha telling me she had lunch with an actress she met while working at a restaurant in Troy. Who would have ever thought that, three years later, that woman would turn out to be none other than Allison Mack. Mack is the Smallville actress who was charged on Friday with sex trafficking for her involvement in an organization that forced its members to ha

Lady-Killer Says He’s a Changed Man
Vanessa in Latham writes: I've been dating a guy for a few months and we're the talk of the town. He's 25, pretty successful, no kids, and very handsome.  But something in the back of my mind is telling me to be careful because his reputation is that he's a bit of a "player." Almost every girl warns me about his past which has included having multiple girlfriends at the same time.  I've

Finally, The Ol’ Barber is Back Doing What He Loves
Back on March 21st, a man who had only known one profession his entire life, was told he had to shut it down.  For this longtime Albany barber, who had been cutting hair since his early 20's, the shutdown was his most difficult cut ever.   It was a decision that came at the hands of CDC officials and the Governor of New York State, not his.  But this stubborn ol' man - resistant to change - rallie

Open Letter To My Son About Life and Times in 2020
Dear Brody, You were a bit too young to remember what life was like during the coronavirus pandemic that swept through the world in 2020, some 13 plus years ago.  Hard to believe it's been that long. Thankfully, we survived these very uneasy and uncertain times and and you are a grown-up now.  Soon enough you'll be off to college and ready to enter a whole new phase in your life. But back in 2020,
Beloved Albany Kitchen Closing It’s Doors
Beloved Albany Kitchen Closing It’s Doors
Debbie's Kitchen, a landmark cafe-style deli in Center Square Albany, is closing its doors on Saturday ending a run of great food and even better people that started in the mid-80's.  It breaks my heart to see this proud place go down- another local business casualty of Covid-19.  If you know anything about Albany food, you know about Debbie's Kitchen.  If you've never heard of it before, I'd like
