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.
Tracy Arm is a fiord that The Disney Wonder is traveled through on our way to Skagway. To say the view is amazing is an understatement. The weather: SPECTACULAR... I actually heard a woman on deck complain that she was hot. Not to many days are sunny this far north and we really got blessed on the day. Disney brought in a local ranger to give a narrative of what we saw… there were times when the mics had to go silent as to not disturb the wildlife. We saw black bears, and seals and goats. I caught a picture of a seal (picture left). There was a ton of glacier pieces floating in the water. The ranger said that the snowflakes that formed this glacier probably fell around the same time that Christopher Columbus set sail for America. The ice pieces have a bluish coloring to them, which is kinda trippy. Now for the super trippy part. After we got as close to the glacier as we could, THEY TURNED THE BOAT AROUND. I have a hard time parallel parking. I can’t even IMAGINE turning an entire cruise ship around in this small space, but Disney did it. THREE CHEERS FOR CAPTAIN FEATHER THORD!
I got some amazing pictures of the glacier, but not as great as Jay’s. The glacier was literally RIGHT OUTSIDE HIS BALCONY. These are 2 of Jay’s pictures from Tracy Arm:
