I grew up in a place where it snows a lot. I loved it when I was a kid. Things changed when I got a job. I've spent nearly my entire adult life in Acadiana and it's the place I'm pleased to call home. I raised my children here, and my grandson Nathan is growing up here. When I was a kid, my brothers & I would "camp out' on the porch on summer nights, listening to a portable AM radio. We got great reception of stations in New York, Boston & even WLS out of Chicago. My favorite was "Cousin" Bruce Morrow. My brothers loved listening to it and I said "I want to do that"...

Please Don’t Share The Drew Brees Car Wreck Story

The above photo is a screen shot of a story that's been periodically popping up on Facebook since 2012. That was the first time I noticed it, anyway. It's bogus, and could potentially harm your computer. Over the past three years, I've seen the same story shared, using the same photo, but the name of the player is changed.

Is The Hoverboard A Reality? Lexus Says ‘Yes’ [Videos]

In "Back To the Future Part II" Marty McFly travels forward in time to 2015. There's a chase scene eerily reminiscent of a similar chase that took place in the first installment. This time Marty's getaway vehicle is a hoverboard. I reported last summer that Marty's hoverboard was to be auctioned by a London auction house, along with other movie props. It obviously wasn't functional. It's 2015. Has the hoverboard become a reality?

Lafayette Arnould Blvd. Piccadilly Robbed

When I arrived in Lafayette, as a young man of 22, I took a job as a manager trainee at the Piccadilly Cafeteria on Arnould Boulevard. That was along time ago, but I recall there was a section in the policy manual containing specific instructions about what to do in the event of a robbery. To paraphrase, the message was "Don't be a hero." ...

Happy National Martini Day!

I was browsing Facebook when I encountered a status that caught my eye. Old friend, former co worker, former roommate, Ed Dufilho, posted that today (June 19th) is "National Martini Day"! Martinis are quite popular here at 99.9 KTDY. Debbie Ray likes quite a few variations, while CJ& I are a little more traditional.

Everything comes from somewhere. Great art is usually inspired by, or stolen from (depending on your perspective) that of someone who came before. Michael Jackson has mesmerized 2 generations with his moves. He wowed us with his epic performance at the Motown 25 special. The legendary Fred Astaire called Michael the next morning to say how much it thrilled him. What about Michael's influences?...
