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!
These Dolphins have a thing for Radiohead!
These dolphins who call Las Vegas home, react positively when Radiohead is played near their enclosure. According to Willow Withy, a yoga instructor who hosts a "Yoga with the Dolphins" class at the Mirage Hotel, the sea mammals are more friendly, curious and their play patterns become more fluid with Radiohead music.
Now, we know why dolphins are one of the most intelligent animals! They like Rock!

BEER MADE FROM THE CRUSHED DUST OF LUNER METEORITES
A Brewery in Delaware has come up with a beer with celestial origins. It's made from the dust that has been on the moon. The actual crushed dust of lunar meteorites.
The process included steeping the dust like tea, and adding the resulting liquid to more traditional ingredients like German malts and hops.
This "space beer" is a creation of the Dogfish Head Brewery. It's a result of a partnership with ILC Dover, the company known for creating space suits for NASA.
Dogfish is calling their brew, "Celest-jewel ale". So far, the only way to enjoy a sample is to visit the Dogfish Head brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
