I'm a nomadic Ohio native who has called CNY home since 1991. Although a musician and teacher by trade, it's by complete chance that I'm even behind a radio microphone! I live in New Hartford with an amazing woman and 5 wonderful kids. Nothing engages me like a good conversation or new idea and I love winging life in the moment. When the curve balls fly though, there's no cure like retail therapy, a haircut, driving with the windows down or walking around barefoot! When I'm not on the air, some of my hobbies are: Flying Airplanes, Piano / Singing, Texas Hold-em, Competitive Pool, Skating and Movie Nights
Radio DJ Ignores In-Studio Fire While On-Air!
This is insane!! I have no idea what he was saying or why it was more important than losing his skin and station equipment in a fire, but this guy either gets the dumbest deejay award or is the consummate professional, I'm not sure which... Just watch, totally unreal!!

Workplace Of The Week (10/1) – Clinton Early Learning Center
Like something out of Dora the Explorer, the Light 98.7 van went up the hill past a construction site and several windy roads later I finally happened upon a playground and the Clinton Early Learning Center tucked away in the woods of Hamilton College.
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) Turns 61 Today, Where Is He Now?
Hey Star Wars fans! Mark Hamill, that once spritely 26 year old rookie actor whose name we all know today because he was encouraged by his buddy Robert Englund (Yup, Freddy) to audition for that little low-budget film that no movie studio would touch back in the day has a birthday today.
Spider Halts $15 Million Construction Project
No, this isn't something out of a science fiction movie, but the discovery of a new species has put construction of a new highway in Texas at a complete stand-still... And it's not a giant spider like in the movies that would halt our hearts much less construction projects! It's an tiny little dime-…
Star Wars Like You’ve Never Seen It Before… Anime!
Star Wars has seen many re-imaginings since the first time x-wings and tie-fighters graced our eyes back in 1977, from movie remakes to video games animated series to fan films. You've probably seen the most recent animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and you may've seen a fan film o…
Our Workplace Of The Week – The Oneida County Office For The Aging In North Utica
I'm telling ya, those Edible Arrangements are so scrumptious looking... It was so hard to deliver that fruit bouquet completely intact, minus the pineapple and all the other mouth-watering melons and fruit! But I exercised a little self-control and delivered the whole thing to Melanie and her c…
Vintage Cereals For Today’s Breakfast
Remember these? I honestly haven't even seen these cereals much less had them on my countertop in decades! Of course the boxes looked much different (and bigger) back when General Mills rolled these out in the early 70's a couple of years before I was born but I can remember chowing on the…
Corn Mazes In The Utica Area
No, they're not crop circles, but as we get ready for the 2012 Halloween season right around the corner, we thought we'd round up all of the goodies that you can go to and maybe even take the little tykes to for a season of fall fun and scares!

Real Life Balloon House From Disney/Pixar’s ‘UP!’ Actually FLIES! [VIDEO]
Watching the flying balloon house in Disney/Pixar's 'Up!' of course got my wheels turning thinking 'yeah right' that'd happen in real life, but looks like the folks at National Geographic decided to bust (or should I say pop) that myth!
Watch Noah Kalina Age 12 Years In Under 8 Minutes
I was first introduced to this awesome video, 'Everyday' back in 2006 when one of my piano students wanted to play the song that was written for this extremely unique project. Photographer, Noah Kalina at the age of 19 took a photo of himself in the same pose every day for six whole years and then s…
