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.
Ever try a craft project only to discover is was WAY MORE INVOLVED than you thought? My sister decided to make pinatas for the kids for our upcoming family reunion. She thought it would be a make one day / decorate the next kind of thing. I told her I'd help out and finish them when the project became way more than a simple couple hour project. I have been making pinatas ALL WEEK. Waiting for the flour and water to dry, painting them was a pain (till I switched to spray paint lol), and I had glue everywhere.
Every try to DIY and find out the project was a pain in your "pinata?" What was the project? Please share!
I'd love to know what else to stay away from... haha!
If you're hardy crafting folk and want to try out making your own pinata after my ringing endorsement, you can get started here: DO IT YOURSELF PINATA The site has easy to follow instructions and cute ideas... but it will be time consuming and messy. JS.
BTW, having ripped the pinata project, the kids LOVED the pinatas... which made it totally worth the labor and glue encrusted hands. They went nuts for the Mike Wizowski, Monsters INC pinata!
