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!
If you're an out-of-work stripper, you can collect unemployment while looking for a new place to shake your tassels. That's the ruling from the Kansas Supreme Court, anyway, which said exotic dancers are employees of their clubs, not just contractors. The case reached the state's highest court when a dancer from Topeka's Club Orleans was denied unemployment because the club argued that she "rented" her space on the stage and earned money through tips. Based on the club's house rules — governing how the strippers interact with customers — the court ruled that the dancers were employees, not independent contractors. "[The ruling] was incorrectly decided," the club's attorney whined. C'mon, there's no crying in the champagne room.
