Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)

Legendary singer/songwriter Janis Ian, who has lived in Nashville for 25 years, also won a Grammy earlier that day for the Best Spoken Word.
I talked with her about what she's doing now, and about being nominated. Hear it here:
And another Memphian had a role in one of the high points of the night - the tribute to Bob Marley. Kameron Whalum is a member of Bruno Mars' band, and played alongside Sting, Rhianna and the Marley sons during the tribute.
I caught up with Kameron when he got back to Memphis. You can hear my segment on it here:
