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.
We walked around a bit more then headed to lunch at Tracy’s Crab Shack. It really is a shack. A shack with the freshest most amazing crab legs you will EVER have. We ate our lunch in a tent across from Tracy’s and the meal was ridiculous. We had crab legs, coleslaw, and scallops with an apple cider that was a really nice accompaniment. Imagine eating crab legs on wax paper… (no plate) from a bucket. The bucket of crabs, coleslaw, rolls, and cider rang in at $123... and it was worth every cent. It was now short of spectacular and may have wrecked me for all other crab legs... still worth it.
After a bit more shopping, it was still really cloudy and rainy in Juneau, so we decided to pass on excursions and headed back to the ship to take… a nap! (Chelsea fell asleep on the bus two seconds after it started moving).
