I grew up in: Polo, IL – home of the Polo Marcos!
Year of Magic debut: 1986. Perhaps I should just round up and say 1990 so that it doesn’t seem quite that long ago
First radio job was: Being a jack-of-all-trades (farm, sports, and news anchor/reporter, DJ) at WSDR in Sterling/Rock Falls, IL.
I regret: Eating entire boxes of (6) Pop Tarts over the years. I should have learned to stop at just five.
Dream day: Any day that includes pizza.
I’m afraid of: Driving in downtown Chicago. I don’t know my way around very well, and – as a farm kid – I get a little claustrophobic and can’t wait to get back to wide open spaces.
My unfulfilled dream is to: Do a back handspring, or at the very least, a back walkover. Can you tell I really wanted to be a gymnast when I was a kid?
My family: Consists of lots of kitties – indoor and outdoor – who do a fabulous job keeping the mice population under control
I’d like to change this about my body: Just once tiny thing: switch mine with Halle Berry’s body.
Song that has moved me: Moved me as in “shake my booty” – “Boogie Wonderland.” Moved me emotionally – Sting’s “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You.”

Even though I was born and raised in northern Illinois, I've spent so much of my life in Wisconsin that I've slowly but surely morphed into a Milwaukee Brewers fan. However, it was difficult not to be a

. . . as soon as I get close to Lien Road on Madison’s east side. That’s because of all the tastiness that’s inside a new store called The Cinnamon Stick. Each and every aisle is stocked
I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 17 years old. It started as a way to stay awake at my early-morning nursing-home job after a late night cheering at high school football and basketball games. I didn’t
I'm asking not literally, but figuratively. My life has been quite a bumpy ride for the last 12 months, but it appears to be calming down somewhat now. It was August of 2015 when my elderly mother
. . . when I visited Decorah, Iowa, as part of a "girls weekend" with some relatives. Part of our weekend plans included a quick drive north of Decorah to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum
The Aerosmith guitarist had a health scare on Sunday, July 10th, during a show with his side band the Hollywood Vampires and was taken to a hospital. This news was extra shocking to me because I had just
Even though summer technically got underway just last week, I’m sure one of the highlights of the entire season will be my trip to Summerfest in Milwaukee to see the Hollywood Vampires. The band's name sounds much more menacing
. . . I'm coming for you at the U.S. Open! Because I've signed up for Advanced Beginner tennis lessons! Surely I should be ready to defeat the world's best female tennis player after a few
