I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids Area. I started working in radio in Whitehall in 1985. Went back to Grand Rapids for less than a year and got a better gig in Muskegon in September of 1986. I also worked at a few restuarants and in construction while going to school before going full time in radio.
I started rockin' with WMRR in March of 2009 and never looked back! I always loved rock music and finally get to work with it everyday!
Can Layovers Be Worse Than This One?
Tom Wagner fell asleep on the first leg of a United Airlines flight from Lafeytte, LA to Los Angeles, CA. When the plane landed in Houston, Texas...nobody on the flight bothered to wake him up! He woke up on his own, all alone in a darkened cabin. After realizing the exit doors were locked, he had to use his cell phone to call his girlfriend to ask her to contact the airline! Once she realized he wasn't joking, she made the call. The airline representative didn't believe her at first when she told him that her boyfriend was locked in their plane! After a half hour, maintenance workers found him in the cabin and asked to see his badge! They could hardly believe it when he told them he was a passenger!
ExpressJet is the company that operates this connecting flight for United. It was obvious the flight crew didn't do a sweep of the aircraft before turning down the cabin lights and locking the exits!
United Airlines did offer Mr. Wagner $250 and a hotel room in Houston for the night.
(Watch the video to hear his explanation!!)
How long would it take you to exit this lot?
