PURE MICHIGAN! I'm so glad to be back in my home state! I started out of CK105 in Flint and, man, was I AWFUL. From there I worked at 92.1 The Edge in East Lansing and Wings 103.1 in Lapeer. My first Detroit gig was Z-Rock followed by 102.7 The Bear with Ted Nugent: talk about fun! Ted was hilarious and so great to fight with in the studio. When Ted took his show to his house and out of Detroit, things got a little less lively, so I took a job at WMMR in Philadelphia.
In Philly, I met my husband and we had our daughter, Mackenzie. I left WMMR and went to work part-time for WYSP while being home with our daughter. When Mackenzie turned four, we moved to Washington DC and I worked for DC101... also a riot. Washington DC is beautiful! There is nothing like the Cherry Blossom festival: simply amazing. We checked out museums and took ghost tours: the city is incredible.
A few years later, I started working for WRNR in Annapolis. I love the Annapolis vibe and the amazing people that populate Maryland's capitol. While with WRNR, my husband and I had our son, Jake, and I worked from home as WRNR's Digital Content Manager.
If I may tell you what you already know, Jay Towers is good people. When I found out I was going to be Jay's co-host, I literally screamed like I'd won the lottery. This is the funnest "job" I have ever had. Jay is a BLAST and he's also genuine, decent, a hard worker and also family oriented.... all values I hold in the highest respect... just please, don't tell him I said that... I like to keep him guessing.
At 10am we had brunch at the amazing PALO.
Oh.my.goodness. The food was CRAZY DELICIOUS. I felt like every plate I created was a work of art. Chelsea had fruit and a light omelet. Jay and I could not believe that she did not take more advantage of the AMAZING CUISINE. I asked Chelsea if she was going to have an orange juiced soaked cotton ball with her brunch and she called me a bad word.
My plate was SPECTACULAR! Check it out below. Seriously. This food was beyond belief. If I gain 10 pounds this week, I don't really care. Fortunately, I have my fighting weight up to an acceptable level where 10 pounds won't matter. It's ALL GOOD.
Jay and I both got a Chocolate Pot as one of our desserts. Jay described it as “Chocolate cake with hot chocolate with lava cake with hot fudge.” His description was DEAD ON. It was so delicious. (It's the round brown dish on my dessert plate)
Our server, Toni, was nothing short of perfection. He gave us an overview of what was in store for us: heading through Tracy Arm. Glaciers galore, The Wonder will move at a crawl, literally pushing glaciers out of our way. Toni also said that people on deck are encourage to be quiet as to not scare off the wild life that will literally be ALL AROUND US… especially seals and their pups.
