It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

A group of four students in East Texas came just short of winning a national contest, but may have accomplished the creation of one of those "ear worms."

Guess what....it's going to be hot this weekend!  This time of year we don't really need a weather forecast do we?  It gets to at least the mid 90's every day and feels like 105 and that's about all we need to know.  That's the forecast we'll have again this weekend.

Time to hit the lake!  Go fishing, swimming, and boating with Dad on Father's Day weekend.

A Lufkin pool that had been shuttered for two years is open again too.  In fact, it had it's grand re-opening yesterday.
