HOMETOWN:   Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300... counting dogs & cats)

CAREER HISTORY:   When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station. I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me.  Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St. Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.

FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE:   Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung to, like a coffee shop.  Here in town I love the Circle Theatre and Symphony on the Prairie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO:   Garth Brooks, The Eagles, or Fleetwood Mac. Tough to decide between those 3.  

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recently got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!

TELEVISION:   Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that... any "whodunnit" murder show (Dateline, 48 Hours, etc), and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

WEBSITES TO VISIT:   You mean aside from b1057.com? I’m semi addicted to Facebook and Twitter. The things people put out there for public consumption greatly amuses me.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:  I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean, and I once ran for political office (and lost).

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS:  Marrow, Zydeco, Iozzos, Napolese.. I could go on. Seriously. That’s like asking a mother to name her favorite child. 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK:  Getting up in the middle of the night... oh wait, I thought you said “least” favorite thing.

TYPICAL BREAKFAST:   I don't usually eat breakfast (don't judge me).

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + dinner at a fun trendy spot = a great weekend!

LIKE TO COOK?  Yeah... I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby... low and slow).

PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.

THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:  Coffee, diet pop sweetened with stevia, water with organic lemon juice  (I’m very beverage centric).

THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:  1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 465... please stop and help).

Some of the more obvious answers... Respect. Talk openly. But a surprising answer to some: Get good at fighting!
Lots of excitement over Portillo's opening their first Indy area location soon ( read that story here ). But you don't have to wait for them, because you can get a Chicago Dog NOW at DJs Hot Dog Co. First of all -- There is no ketchup on a Chicago hot dog. Repeating. There is no...
White Castle is now taking reservations for their 26th annual Valentine's Day dinner.
My apologies for the title :) Gregory's Russian Restaurant may be Indy's only full service Russian eatery. The live piano music is a little unexpected, yet charming. The food -- comforting and perfect for a cold winter day. I'm not sure I had ever experienced Russian food,...
The question: What does the north-side have that you wish your side of town did? It's inspired by this list from IndyStar naming things the north-side has that the south-side wants, but being an east-sider ( I live in Irvington )... I thought "Hey, what about the E & W sides...
Sharing my desire on the air to lose 20 lbs in the next two weeks.. ha! I won what amounts to an alumni of the year type award at my high school and I'm going back home to Soutern Illinois in a few weeks to claim it. I'll be on the basketball court in front of everyone.. that's...
