Chris Monroe

My radio journey began back in April of 2004. I started as an intern for the night show of a local Top 40 station. After making my way up through the ranks there, long story short, I caught wind of a weekend opening for The Banana and jumped on it. Now, I am the Promotions Director for the greatest station in the Universe. I feel very lucky to be doing what I'm doing now. The Machine Shop has become a home away from home and I love being apart of every Banana Event out there. My two favorites are the Bad Golfers League and the Bad Bowlers League. It's a blast to be able to spend so much time and hang out with our kick ass listeners. Life is good, cheers aholes!

Neighborhood Firework Finale, Filmed From Ground Zero [VIDEO]

While cruising all over the place this passed weekend, I was able to see a lot of cool fireworks displays. I am a bit disappointed I didn't make it to this display though.

Well that's exactly what this Miami stripper did. This is why cheaters always get caught, they're stupid.
