During my radio career I’ve always enjoyed talking to listeners “on and off” the air. As a result I’ve struck up friendships with some very “cool” people like Jayson. He heard me one morning and called in to give me “road & traffic” conditions going over Sardine Canyon on a snowy day. We hit it off immediately and he’s become a “regular” on my “Morning Show” with a 645am feature. I christened him “Jammin’ Jayson” and he’s a “Desert Storm” vet who works in Logan. He’s the Utah coordinator of the National “Veterans Awareness” Organization, and again this year he’s spearheading the Utah Chapter for the “Ride to the Wall” in Washington D.C.
We’re getting the word out about this GREAT cause and event and even taking donations like: DVDs, CDs, puzzles, games, books and other “entertainment” items. Jason and the guys will be stopping at the SLC Veterans Nursing Home this Thursday at 1pm to visit with the Vets and give them the donations. For more info please call 801-200-1798.
Living in the Cache Valley has many “pros”, but on the flip side there are more than a few “cons”. In addition to some of the “worst” air in the country there’s an epidemic of “HORRIBLE” drivers. As if the potholes, lack of “left turn” signals, and massive congestion on Main Street weren’t enough there’s a LACK of common courtesy and manners. I’ve been in the area for over four years and it’s been a major pain in the butt to deal with so many rude and clueless drivers. I’ve developed a severe case of “Road Rage” and I don’t drive in the busiest times. Come on people I’m tired of being “tailgated, cut off, and flipped off” etc etc.
I hate to vent but it’s caused me to talk about this on the air, and I don’t like having to resort to those tactics. If we all try and improve our road etiquette things just might go smoother on the “Asphalt Jungle”.
Over the years I’ve been at tons of radio station remotes, and on-site events. Up until this past Saturday I had avoided injury out in public. So much for good luck and keeping yourself out of “Harm’s Way”….while broadcasting at Valley Recycling’s “Earth Day” event at the Fairgrounds I was hit in the back of the head with one of these. It was thrown from a long distance and I’ve never been hit so hard. Needless to say it hurt and bled like hell. The culprit said he tried to warn me, but I never heard “fore” or anything. The nice folks at Valley Recycling came to my aid and bandaged me up. The guy apologized and I finished the broadcast and didn’t need stitches(thank goodness). I think he learned his lesson when I told him any medical expenses were his responsibility. Thing turned out okay for all concerned and I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of telling the story “on” and “off” the air.The next time I’m out in public at a station event I’ll be using one of these. I learned first hand that Radio can be a “Dangerous” job.
Join us this Friday and Saturday at Valley Recycling’s annual “Earth Day” celebration. We’ll be there for the highest prices of the year for your scrap metals. Bring your aluminum cans and copper scrap to the Cache County Fairgrounds. Take your steel and scrap vehicles to the 10th West facility. Free lunch plus thousands of dollars in “cash and prizes”. “Go Green” and get green with Valley Recycling.
