Is Your Cell Phone Hurricane Ready?

A year ago today, we were bracing for Hurricane Irma. And nothing has changed. Your cell phone is probably not ready for another hurricane. My neighborhood was the first of the mandatory evacuation zones. Most Floridians went without power for days. Cell phone batteries died and there was no electricity to charge them. It broughtContinue reading “Is Your Cell Phone Hurricane Ready?”

“Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. An Alligator

It doesn’t get much more Florida than this. Although I don’t know where this actually happened. But I’ve watched it a dozen times and I’m 59.41% sure this was faked. What do you do when a gator is approaching in the water? Get out? Nah. Too easy. Climb to the top rope and unleash yourContinue reading ““Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. An Alligator”

Why Florida Loved Anthony Bourdain

You know why we loved Anthony Bourdain? Because there’s no way Gordon Ramsay would go to Waffle House. For a guy who traveled the world and ate every conceivable delicacy from scrumptious to revolting, the fact that Anthony showed some serious love to Waffle House is everything. He was well-traveled, well-spoken… but he’d still beContinue reading “Why Florida Loved Anthony Bourdain”

If you’ve listened to my show anytime during Florida Strawberry Festival week, you’ve no doubt heard me obsess over what is probably my favorite food ever.

Throwback Thursday: The Patriots and Bucs at Raymond James Stadium in 2012

With the big Patriots/Bucs Thursday Night Football nationally televised game coming up next week, figured I’d dig out the pictures from their preseason game 5 years ago at Raymond James Stadium. It’s kind of eerie looking back at these photos of Aaron Hernandez playing alongside Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman.

Brett Eldredge at the WQYK Fun ‘N Sun Country Concert in 2012

When Brett took the stage that day, he didn’t have any big songs on the radio. Only a few dozen made the 3 minute walk to the back of Coachman Park to watch his performance.

Moxie Soda In Florida… Why?

Growing up in Maine, there are certain things you miss when you move away. Lobster rolls, Italian sandwiches, whoopie pies and the leaves changing color in fall.

6 Years In Florida And I’ve Never Seen An Alligator

I posted on Facebook a couple weeks ago when I was down in Miami that after 6 years of living in Florida, I’d still never come across an alligator. Oh sure, I’ve seen them at Busch Gardens and some tourist trap type places. But in my daily life, I’ve never spotted one. People actually gotContinue reading “6 Years In Florida And I’ve Never Seen An Alligator”
