Weekdays 7pm - 12am
Posts from November 2012

Hi there!!..I've been enthralled lately reading the latest biography on Bruce Springsteen entitled "Bruce" by Peter Ames Carlin. And since we're just two short days from Bruce and The E Street Band at the Rose Garden, I thought this would be a good time to share this review from the Boston Globe. It's just my humble opinion, but if you're a fan, give this book a go.

Celebrating Zeppelin
Five years after Led Zeppelin's historic reunion in London, the concert film and album "Celebration Day" lands in stores today. I had the privelege to speak with the film's director Dick Carruthers, a fascinating gentleman, who's enthusiasm for the project is obvious. And why not?, he's directed what very well could be one of the greatest concert films of all time. Check it out!

Hi all!!...Tomorrow is a big day for all of us here at KGON, actually it's THE BEST day, our annual KIDSGIVING event to benefit the Community Transitional School and the Oregon Food Bank. Come join Iris, Amy the KGON'sider, Concert Dave, myself and the KGON crew at the Farmington Thriftway Store, 17675 SW Farmington Rd. in Aloha from 9am-7pm. We've joined up with Western Family Foods for this year's event, as we collect donations of non perishable food items and money to help those less fortunate in our community this holiday season. Who knows, you might walk away with a KGON t-shirt, a CD, DVD or maybe tickets to see TSO for your generosity. Hope to see you there...Happy Holidays!

Thoughts on 11/6/12
Hi all!!...Well here we are, November 6th, and as I rolled out of the rack to start my day, some random thoughts entered my  brain space as millions of voters head to the polls. First off, I hope you had/have the opportunity to cast your vote, it's the strongest statement we can make. Second, has it really been 18 months since all this craziness started?..Yes it has, no wonder I'm exhausted!.. Third, how can I make this evening more interesting, entertaining and enjoyable instead of frustrating, maddening and making me feel like smashing my t.v.?...BEER!..Fourth, why do people who are highly educated, intelligent and want to lead this country often act like little whiny jerk wads? And finally..after today, NO MORE POLITICAL ADS, JUNK MAIL OR ROBO CALLS...HAPPY ELECTION DAY!!
