Having been interested in commercial art since high school and even starting my career in that direction, I take real delight when anyone does a good job of it. I had my very first job at Dunkin Donuts. I thought I was doing well  and I was fired within a week.  My boss said I […]

A few weeks ago at Concerts on the Square, Magic 98 fan and friend, Kurt Sonnenburg, stopped by Magic 98‘s VIP table to share his fantastic salmon spread. He and his wife, Monika, set up a brunch table to write home about! He could open his own restaurant. Every one of our guests loved the salmon […]

I was noodling through Facebook the other day where I watched a video of a few things that Coca-Cola will clean. Years and years ago, once I learned Coke would take the paint off a car, I stopped drinking all soda. Truly, I thought perhaps this video was a spoof. Thing is, I love my […]

One of Verona’s hidden treasures is not so hidden. It’s just that it’s got tight hours. It’s not a big secret, just not shared a lot until now. SWAP does not stand for Smart Women at Play, but it could! Salvage With a Purpose is the real name, and on Friday mornings at 8AM you […]

I’ve been minding my good friends’ pets while they are at a wedding. It keeps me popping back and forth from my place to theirs. I always let Joe the turtle have run of the apartment. When I call him, he may take his time, but he comes out, and I put him back in […]

This is the view I get to see every time I come to work at Magic 98. It’s our reception area. I’ve seen it countless times, sat in the chairs to do interviews, or waited for a listener to come and pick up a prize. The Memorial High School choir assembles here before going up […]

I really love to share something if I have found it to be more then wonderful. With an eye on putting better food into my body these days,  it is with great pleasure, and a little pomp and circumstance, that I recommend this latest breakfast! Toast, peanut butter and sliced strawberries. Satisfying and delicious! Sara […]

Several blog posts back, I wrote about a beautiful 100-year-old willow tree along the Yahara River Trail, where I walk all the time. It’s the very one where I first met the owl I photographed in yet another blog post. The picture you see here is that tree now. Several trees were damaged in the […]

I have been thinking about how many listeners I’ve known over the many years I have been working here at Magic 98. You are all so truly friendly, kind, and generous, and you always understand my sense of humor. I am very, very blessed to have such a fun, interesting, and challenging job. If I […]

I am so very lucky that the Yahara River Trail is just walking distance from my home. It’s wild enough to have deer, hawks, fox, snakes and and now the cranes have returned. It is along the creek that meets up with the Yahara River, so it’s mapped for you, too. Bikes are allowed, animals […]
