Time Flies When You're Having Fun

March 24, 2019


It's been two years. TWO YEARS! Since I joined SiriusXM Classic Vinyl as weekend host.
How's that possible?
And I've loved & cherished every single day with you.
Thanks for putting up with me and my growing pains.
Leaving hard news journalism after 20+ years to become a classic rock DJ was a big switch.
In just a few months I went from reporting on the 2016 Presidential Election for NPR to hosting a classic rock show.
From full-on stress to full-on bliss.

Slowly I'm morphing from who I always thought I should be, into who I am.
It's terrifying! But also so damn fun & liberating.
Thank you so much for listening. And thank you for all your messages on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. I read them all!

Most importantly, thank you to each and every one of you who took the time and made the effort to stop by the SiriusXM studio in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and say "Hi!" I love meeting you!

You are the best.
It is an honor and a thrill to rock out with you every weekend to the best damn music in the world.
And dressing up & wearing heels in the coolest museum in the world. 
'Cause that's just how I roll.
Rock & Roll. Hoochie Coo. Lordy MaMa, Light My Fuse!
Rock On!

What I Learned At Yale

June 18, 2018


Yale University has a unique program for storytellers.
It's called THREAD at Yale.
And it changed me.
My biggest take away: Trust in you.

A delicious stew of 59 unique storytellers from around the globe flew, drove and boarded trains to make the life-changing journey to Yale University. They came from places like New Zealand, India, the U.K., South America, North America, and even Cleveland.

We all met for the first time at an on-trend beer joint, creatively named BAR. It's smack dab in the mid...

Off To Yale!

June 10, 2018


Gosh, I love to tell a good story.
Been working at it for 30+ years now. 
During that time I've worked with some of the best in the broadcasting biz.
And some of the worst. Ew.
Learned from them what to do, and what not to do.
My favorite mentors had a zeal for life. And a voracious need to keep learning. 
Me too. 
That's why I applied to Yale University's storyteller program "Thread at Yale."
And holy mackerel, they accepted me.
So, it's off to New Haven, Connecticut, to learn from some of the best s...

Rock Hall Induction 2018

March 10, 2018


Crazy that it's been a year now since I joined SiriusXM Classic Vinyl as weekend DJ.
It flew by!
The first few weeks I trained under the legendary DJ Dusty Street. Not only is she smart, witty and cool, she's really sweet too. A one of a kind lady. Still can't believe I work with her!

Every time I walk into work, at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a big ole grin spreads across my face & my heart fills with joy. "I work here!" I scream inside. "I work here!" 

The building is stunning and it's filled...

Celebrating A Friend's Dream Come True!

January 11, 2017

I met Karen Siat eons ago when we were competing in the Mrs Ohio America Pageant.
We became immediate friends.
She just had a spark and drive that drew me to her.
And I vividly recall how she told me that weekend that her dream was to one day be a celebrity makeup artist and own her own makeup studio.
Well, this weekend, that dream comes true.
After years of working as a make-up artist for stars, world-renown photographers, magazines, and advertisers, Karen is opening her own makeup studio.
