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!

Sometimes times I think there is a similar list going around the radio station about food too. Seems like every time there is food in the building, we are the last ones to know. So we end up with the table scraps and crumbs. I may have to do some investigating like this.

There isn't a whole lot of background on this story but this woman has to be a bit unstable.

School Under Fire As Students Play Jump Rope With Cat Intestine [VIDEO]

How did these kids even think this was a good idea. First of all, that had to be messy in general. Second, when did they start dissecting cats. When I was in school, it was worms and small shell fish. Now that everyone is a click away from the entire world, of course PETA was able to find this video.

I would imagine this will really help out with his mental illness defense. Instead of turning himself in for a mental evaluation, this guy decides to stream the whole thing on Facebook. Obviously this backfired as the police were watching it too and eventually called in the SWAT team.

Some people get really startled really easy. This mom was just minding her business hacking up a turkey when Nemo stopped by for a visit. I'm not sure how she didn't see that big ole thing coming at her but she's lucky she didn't stab herself in the face with that freak out.
