I drive a lot to work (around 65 miles each way). During my drive a listen to a lot of radio (regular terrestrial radio, as well as SiriusXM). I start by listening to The Hawk Morning Show with Rick Michaels (99.9 The Hawk). Like the daily Dead Guy in the Envelope contest each morning. Then as I travel east, and start to lose the signal, I will switch over to The Morning Jolt with Jim Monaghan. Have been listening to 105.5 WDHA as long as I can remember growing up in New Jersey. They still play the best mix of old and new rock music. As I get to work, I will also switch over to 101.1 CBS FM and check out Scott Shannon. I know I am old school, but I like listening to live DJS, and the randomness of regular radio. Throughout my drive, if a song comes on that really don’t like, I will then switch over to Volume Channel 106 on Sirius and see what They are discussing. I like listening to Nik Carter and Lori Majewski on ‘Feedback’ as they are usually talking about music and bands that I can relate to.
On my way home, it been Mike Francesa on WFAN as long as I can remember. It’s crazy that the FAN is celebrating 30 years of Sports Radio, and I have been listening from the beginning. Side Note – I am really looking forward to ESPNs 30 for 30 on Mike and the Mad Dog on July 18th
I really don’t know what I am going to listen to when Mike retires at the end of the year. Will be really interesting to see who they choose to replace him (whether they stay in house or bring somebody in from the outside.
And finally its back to Volume Channel 106 on Sirius for Debatable with Mark Goodman and Alan Light. Again been watching / listening to Mark Goodman all they way back to 1981 when MTV premiered. Where has the time gone
Also if there happens to be a Mets game on, I will usually switch over to 710 WOR (AM) and Howie Rose and Josh Lewin The Mets have been so bad lately that it’s a tough listen but no matter how bad they are, listening to a Mets game on the radio (in my car, at home, or when going for a evening walk) is very relaxing and makes me happy.
Back to the title of this Blog “Wishing You a Great Day”- I have started a thing, where for every song that comes on the radio during my dive, I think of the 1st person that pops into my head, and wish them a great day. It a great way to think of all my friends and family and see how they remind me of a particular song. Sometimes a song will remind me of multiple people (I choose the 1st person) , and other times a song will remind me of nobody. But for each song eventually narrow it down to 1 person and wish them best wishes and a great day. Anybody reading this should give it a try. It not only makes me feel happy but the world needs more love and positive thoughts and I’m doing my best to help
That’s it for now.
