Dukane Abate 27th Annual Toy & Food Run


The cool people at Dukane ABATE are throwing their 27th annual Toy and Food Run on Sunday October 13th. This is a great opportunity to have some fun with other riders and help out local children.

Now I've been asked to jump on stage and play guitar with the performing band - Shooter. How can I say no to a charity, so I'll do it, however I have no idea what the hell we are going to play since I can't remember a cover song all the way through to save my life... but we'll try.

Here are the details from their flyer.

Radio Flashback 1995 - The Cornholing Incident

Me, Hardy Nickerson, Lee, and Harry on the bottom

Sitting in the daily after morning show meeting with my Program Director down in Tampa Florida. My co-host Lee to my left, and the typical cerebral news guy Harry sitting on my right. The office was very dimly lit, shades always drawn tight, and decorated with many cool items of rock memorabilia all over the walls. Little toys and figures were strategically placed in every inch of free space on his desk and shelves. He was rubbing his hand over the top of his freshly shaved head rocking back in his chair.
