MLB All-Star Week!

July 8, 2019


This week all eyes are on Cleveland as it hosts the 2019 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
And at the heart of all the festivities is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Many of the major MLB VIP parties, galas and get-togethers are being held at the Rock Hall this week.
Just for the occassion, the hall built a pop-up disco on the front plaza, filled with clear acrylic tables and chairs, a half-dozen bars, and a dance floor illuminated with sputnik chandeliers. It's so cool!
It's also been so fun to look out of our SiriusXM Classic Vinyl studio window and see the huge crowds of baseball fans taking it all in. I've met people from all over the world this week. And it's been a thrill to meet listeners from all over the U.S. and Canada.
You know I had to wear my favorite Indians jersey to work today. Topped off with heels & sequins, of course.
Rock on!

Another amazing new development this holiday weekend: They built a disco on the Rock Hall Plaza!
Yup, a whole disco, complete with clear plastic tables and chairs, ...

Thanks so much for rockin' with me on SiriusXM Classic Vinyl each weekend.

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 thoug...

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...
