The Morning Brew-HaHa!
Weekday mornings at 7:15
Join us weekday mornings for a little comedy.
Very little. :-)
We'll feature short comedy clips from America's Stand-out Stand-up comedians to get your day started. Enjoy! And no heckling, please. :-)
*Caution: Sudden unexpected laughter can cause you to spew your morning coffee right out of your nose in unlikely places...like in the middle of rush hour traffic. We assume no responsibility if this happens.
It's Twofer Tuesday on ROCK103!
We're doubling down on the rock songs today. Double-shots of all your favorite rockers.
Another cool thing about Twofer Tuesday is it gives us a chance to dig a little deeper in the library for some songs you might not hear very often on the radio.
Enjoy the variety, my friend...and don't be a weenie.
It was two years ago today that I lost a friend and colleague. John "Bad Dog" McCormack lost his battle with Leukemia on March 10, 2011.
Before I started working at Rock 103, I was a fan. The man brought me more laughs than I can possibly remember.
Once I started working with him, I quickly realized that his hijinks were'nt limited to well thought out Twilight Phone episodes. He was a master of impressions, and often played them out on us around the radio station as well. I still laugh about a few fake "Hotline Calls" that I got as the new guy on the team.
I consider myself blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him as Producer of the Wake Up Crew for a number of years. It was surely a once in a lifetime opportunity, because there is no one else like him.
Before he got his diagnosis, I remember atttending a Wake Up Crew Anniversary party at Minglewood Hall. Tesla was playing. The house was packed. I remember commenting on how he had lost a lot of weight. He looked good, and seemed to be in great shape.
When it came time for the Wake Up Crew to hit the stage for a stage announcement, he grabbed me and said "Come on! You're part of this too, ya know". Even though I wasn't producing the Wake Up Crew any more, and was across the hall at our sister station, he still insisted that I join them on stage.
That's just the way he was: Anxious to include you in the fun. John wasn't somebody that ever insisted on being in the spotlight. The spotlight just naturally followed him.
It was only a few weeks later that we learned of his diagnosis.
The number of lifes that he touched is amazing. And these days, when I walk into the studio each morning, I walk right past his empty chair, pausing a moment to tap the chair a couple of times like I was patting a good friend on the back or something. It's my way of wishing he were still here and acknowledging the influence he had on us all.
This is the last time I'll buy Apple gear from a guy at a gas station.
Okay, now that I have your attention...we remind you that Tuesday's are kinda special around here. It's Twofer Tuesdays, with double shots of rock all day.
We're doubling down on the rock all day Tuesday, and digging a little deeper into the ROCK103 Library for some songs you haven't heard in a while.
Twofer Tuesdays....they're worth waiting all week for! :-)
