Wow, what a week–  I can’t believe it is already the weekend and the time change weekend at that.  I am one of the few people I know who has an easier time adjusting to this loss of sleep every year.  I guess there are advantages of getting up at 4:30 am.

This week was a tough one for me, why?  Last Thursday I tripped and fell bruising or cracking some ribs!  Yep, it hurt and continues to cause pain.   I found myself getting relief from the pain by “Playing Radio”.  Yeah, I call what I do play sometimes because it is just fun and this week I needed it to be fun.   YES I WAS PLAYING THROUGH THE PAIN!

From lots of weird strange stuff in the news – there was the interview with Former Miss America Debbie Turner Bell about a program that could put your pet on TV.    I had actually met Debbie back in 1991 when she was my co-mc at a Scholarship pageant in Missouri.  Not sure if she remembered me but I sure remember getting a hug and kiss on the check from Miss America!  You can still listen to the interview on

I also interviewed the bass player for Hotel California an Eagles tribune act that played at the Ellen Eccles Theater.   These tribute acts are fun to go to because you get a great experience at a fraction of the cost of the real thing.


Finally, I would like to wish USU AGGIE coach Stew Morrill the best on his retirement from active coaching.   I have never had to chance to meet the coach but I have watched him his entire carrier as the Aggie Coach.   I have often said that to me one of his best coaching attributes was his ability to get the most from his players!   I thought he was a master at this and that is a talent.    I also enjoyed watching him coach a game while the greatest student section in college basketball would crack up the heat on the visiting team.    Yeah Coach, you will be missed but I thank you for all the great memories!
