Then, now, next


















-kyla, from over the weekend at Smithsonian Air and Space at Dulles, visibly unhappy at a warning sign telling me that I can't carry her on my shoulders. LOL. 

Peets' holiday blend is amazingly flavorful this morning.

Maybe it's the blend, or the time of the year motivating me this morning, or the white noise of the morning rainfall, but I'm a bit nostalgic today. It could be the coffee mug from the "then" incarnation of a station I worked at after a "revolution" but which is still from a "then" time in my life.

Then. Now. Next.

The 'then' and all of it's successes and even what some might call failures in life, love, and experiences, have been the best lessons I've ever had. They influence my now and guide me - even if I choose at times not to pay attention to lessons learned then. And, they're guiding what's next for me, those closest to me, and more.

On to the next.

Football Jesus (11/20)


Week ELEVEN is here... here's the week's FBJ podcast!
Will the EAGLES have the same sort of week they had against the Washington Wigwams last week? Will the Wigwams be slightly better than the Lanham, Maryland Land Sharks Flag Football Team at the YMCA?

What about DALLAS?! Is Jason Garrett, the former QB for the 'Boys in the Post-Aikman era, and the man who made the team wear ties at Valley Ranch, be the man who will return the 'Boys to some sort of glory this year?! The sportswriters are sounding like it... but what will the week bring?

And WHY did the DOLPHINS blow it at home causing me to be 0-1 going into this week's picks??!?!?!

Howard Stern, Billy Joel: Best interview ever. Period.




I couldn't sleep the other night, and I aroused myself early and turned on my Sirius XM receiver. Howard Stern was on... and he interviewed the great Billy Joel.

It was by far the best - and I mean - best radio interview I've ever heard.

You can see the whole thing here. 

It was so amazing I listened at least three more times, and watched the interview on Howard on-demand. 

I know there are people who have issues with Howard's content. I know some people don't agree that he plays on the cheap and easy, the sexual and the shocking, but his thing is his thing... and it's, as he says, always real. 

But the other day, when he talked to Billy Joel, it was just magical. A pioneer in his field talking to a master of music. 

I listen to my colleagues from around the industry do interviews and they're all, well, with all due respect and without trying to be insulting, you just can't compare them to Howard's selfless, disarming manor. He's never hokey. He's never cheesy. He doesn't do "Howard Stern Radio Exclusives..." Instead, Howard has conversations. With heart. With emotion. That connect and which cut through the noise to make a difference in the mind and emotion of the listener. 

It was magic. Radio magic. 

I've interviewed hundreds of people from all walks of life and I can only pray that I interview as well as Howard did with Billy. 

It was that good. 

He's the King of all Media... and he might just be the greatest of all time. 

Thank you for the graduate lesson in interviewing, Howard. It was just effing brilliant. 

If you work in radio, and interview anyone, you should find his interview, watch it, and learn. It was just effing brilliant. 

Okay, I'm done now.

Can you do me a favor, friends?

Hi!

So there have been some pretty interesting changes happening over at the HOT and KISS blogs. I've been experimenting with something totally new, and different for how most radio types do things...

... and rather than just cutting and pasting other people's stories, like say, from Perez, or TMZ or Defamer or Fark, I've decided to, well, tell the stories I see.

Some stuff is based on the gossip headlines of the day, but with a twist. Other stuff, like say the Veteran's Day coverage, the Nats coverage and more, well, that's all from my life, things which I experience which you might find either interesting, or not so interesting. A lot of it is from my life, as well.

Bottom line, and I think you and I have a relationship where I can say this: I think - in a world so full of noise - I want to make noises, and create content, which connects. And that's why I'm trying new things. And I think that so much of what you read on sites like ours, well, is just regurgitated BS. It's interesting, sure, but it's all a repackage of something someone else made.

And, to me, that's not original.  But it's not about me...


I want to know what you think.

Can you please take a moment to give the site a read. Let me know what you think... is it what you think I should be doing? Is there something you'd rather see from me? Or, no? I'd really like you to be honest... and I'll try to adapt my content appropriately!

If you're in Dallas, click here.

Feel free to email me and share your thoughts...

Thank you for being you. It means a lot that you took the time to read this... and it means even more that you listen like you do. I don't take you for granted... and I never will. I promise.

Tribe, I'm listening... thanks in advance for sharing!

Free Picks, Da' Bears, Redskins, Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Favre, Minnesota, Vegas, the NFL and more: Here's the Football Jesus podcast (11/13)

Will there be HAIL or FAIL this weekend in DC!??!

Football Jesus and American radio presenter Toby Knapp chatted about the upcoming NFL America weekend following a stunning Thursday night win - called by Football Jesus - by the Falcons of Atlanta!

"He called it, and that's all I'm gonna say about that, now on with the show," Knapp said.

This weekend's match ups are of some importance to Knapp, who has seemingly faltered in his luck over the last couple of weekends. While careful not to blame his shaman, Knapp pointed out that in football, and life, anything can happen.

"On any given Sunday, the Joes can win, and screw the sports books, or the sports books and line makers can win, and screw the Joes, and it's called "gambling" for a reason," Knapp said. "You can't win all the time, and I'm satisfied with how things are right about now."

You can hear the podcast here!

I think it's cuz she's got hot eyes. And boots. And I like the new uniform she's modeling...

Football Jesus talks NFL week nine (11/5)

Football Jesus and Toby Knapp looked back at a dismal Halloween weekend in the NFL, made abysmal by the ridiculously poor performance from the Dallas Cowboys, while looking forward to week nine action last night. 

Knapp and Football Jesus spoke somewhat earlier than usual, since the American radio presenter is on weekend holiday in Chicago with colleagues and friends from the US radio, concert and television industries. 

"There's much optimism that this week will be better than the last," said Knapp spokesman Richard Peterfeeler. "After last weekend, God knows he could use it, and Football Jesus feels that Knapp's outlook for success is strong," Peeterfeeler added. "He's also given an amazing free pick for free this week, a blessing for those who reach out and touch faith."
