The Movie that I am most interested in this summer…

Being a HUGE fan of Raiders of the Lost Ark, you’d think that I am all geeked out about Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. I am…but that’s not my biggest “must-see”.  What is it?

There you go…it could be the stupidest thing ever seen on screen, but for some reason, Steve Carell is Maxwell Smart seems like some incredibly inspired casting. Can’t figure out why “The Rock” is in it though, other than to give us the second jewel in the “Game Plan/Get Smart/Pacifier 2, Electric Boogaloo” triple crown of acting. (Okay, he hasn’t done the last movie yet…but it seems plausible)



My alter-ego

In addition to my day job of programming and announcticating on FM 100, I am also involved with a great online radio station on Live 365. It’s That 70’s Channel.

That 70’s Channel

It’s run by one of my oldest friends, Bud Kress. I am the image voice for the station…it’s too much fun! If you’re looking for a good time, check out the station…and if you’re looking for a new image voice…check it out and hit me up! I’m affordable! 🙂

Dunkin’ Donuts…and my level of relaxation.

If I haven’t made this clear (and being only post #2…probably not), I am a coffee junkie. To quote Barney Gumble: “JUST STICK IT IN MY VEINS!!!”

I have always liked trying different types of coffees, whole bean of course, and becoming a coffee “snob”. However, I have recently come across some good ole’ just plain joe…

Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee

Problem is, I’m sure there are those who think “You idiot! Dunkin’ Donuts has been around for years! You JUST noticed this???” Uh, yeah. You gotta understand, I lived in California most of my life, where the chances of finding a Dunkin’ Donuts were about the same as finding an NFL team in Los Angeles anymore. Even in Utah, Krispy Kreme had tightened it’s Vader-like grip on the donut world…and I just wanted Coffee. We even had a coffee bar in a radio station I worked for (that place is another story for another day). However, it all tasted like too-strong Starbucks wannabejava. Then one day I was in the office of my fellow Program Directors, Jeff McCartney of KZHT. He had BAGS of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee in his office. He said he had purchased them online since he grew up in Pennsylvania and missed it.So, I went online and bought some as well…


This stuff was awesome. Just plain coffee…and just plain good! However, I am a very lazy person. So, I rarely had the chance to buy it again.

Then came Memphis…

After we merged with Entercom, our Controller mentioned that she was going up to Boston and was planning on buying some DD Coffee. I immediately gave her $20 and asked for 2 bags… when she came back, it was gone within a couple of weeks. I knew that she couldn’t continue as my coffee mule to Boston every few weeks, so I had to hold onto the hope that Dunkin’ was planning on opening stores here in Memphis…in the next few years. We even made a trip to a Dunkin’ store in Jackson, some 80 miles away, just for the coffee (well, the Casey Jones Museum was there too…)

Then…during a fateful trip to Schnucks, there it was. WHOLE BEAN Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee! My life had purpose again…and I am now caffeinated and relaxed…

As Paul Harvey says: “Now you know…the rest of the story!”

Blog…huh! What is it good for?

Let’s start at the beginning. Hi, I’m Lance. I am 40. I am a Leo on the Virgo cusp…

Enough chit-chat, let’s get down to business.

I’ve come to realize that if I continue to prod my airstaff into blogging and using all of the tools of the internet, then to not regularly blog myself would be quite hypocritical. After all, I have a MySpace (why? Great question), and have linked it to the FM 100 MySpace account, so there is some avenue and reason why I feel compelled to share my mindless wandering.

What shall I blog about? Life. The Radio Industry. My Family. Pretty much anything is fair game.

For example, right now I am fighting illness. My throat is tightening up, and it is hard to swallow. So there. That’s post #1.
