2 Strangers Questions

So many have asked the question "Do you know what the bride really looks like?" The honest answer is NO... and the staff here at Energy have worked REALLY hard keeping her away from us "on air folk". Have I met her? Maybe? I really don't know what she looks like. IN fact, I may have been riding the elevator with her all week for all I know.

Saturday night, MONDAY BRIDE slipped into the Whiskey this past Saturday Night... found her friends and then asked 1 friend to bring a note to Tripp West and me in the DJ booth.

We strained to see MONDAY BRIDE... and follow her friend back to the gaggle of gurls that accompanied MONDAY at the Whiskey. Alas, we lost her. So, nothing to report on what MONDAY LOOKS like. YET!

It's been about an entire month now of my ABS BY MAUI venture I'm doing with my friends ROD at If you've even begun a workout routine, you are well aware that you hit many plateaus that can be VERY discouraging. That is why I've invited you to make some of the diet and life changes along with me.

In reality, the biggest things I've done is eating organic yogurt for breakfast with mixed nuts, and one protein shake. Other than that, it's been eating fresh foot, and spreading out my meals every 3 hours, as I was clumping food and meals together in a bad way. Try that, and you'll see changes right away!

It's been busy,it's very hard stay motivated when we're all so busy. 2 days ago, I was reserved myself to the fact that I wasn't going to make it. Then, my bride paid me a compliment last night saying that there is a BIG difference in the squishy middle I had developed. It was nice, and I jokingly flexed in the mirror. And, sure enough... wait.. is that.. no. can't be.

Ok, no abs yet. BUT, if I pull my tummy fat out of the way, I can see ABS! How, I just need to keep trimming the love handles! LOL! Ok, there are muscles below my fat.. I know that.

It's OK to try it, get in front of the mirror.. and squish the belly fat out of the way. I'm sure you'll find muscles! Now, go do some crunches!!

Whiskey Saturday Night Live to Air

Every Saturday Night we broadcast the music from the Whiskey... we being Tripp and I along with Energy 101.5. It's a blast, tons of people... but mostly just a great place to DANCE!

Join us on the radio after 9p on Saturday Night, or even better just come down and join the fun.

This week, I think I've talked MONDAY BRIDE into coming down to the Whiskey. You see, last weekend, MONDAY was at home listening to Energy 101.5, and said she really wanted to go out dancing. So, THIS SATURDAY, the MONDAY bride is planning on heading out on the town for a little dancing. Here's the catch... I don't know what she looks like. She could come a request a song from me, and I wouldn't even have known it was MONDAY. So, come down to the Whiskey on Saturday Night. I guess you could always ask EVERY girl if she's the MONDAY Bride... not that she would admit it.

You never know, you could be the one last dance of MONDAY's single life before she gets married!

A friendly reminder...

Don't you love friendly reminders? I got one of those this week from my boss. Don't forget to keep your blog up to date! OK, things have been crazy!

So, I thought I would blog about my boss. He's crazy! But, he's fun crazy... and he's not really a nag at all. Although, he is a bit of a media ho, everytime you see Energy 101.5 on the TV, watch for the guy in the funny glasses (they're really cool) walking back and forth through the camera shot talking on his cell phone. That's him. And no, he's not ACTUALLY talking to anybody. In fact, I figured I needed to take some time to thank some of the people that AREN'T on the radio each day, but really do make this place tick.

With 2 Strangers and a Wedding going on, we really don't have to worry about it. Our teamates do. In fact, they tell us "Personalities" that "you don't need to worry, concentrate on your show and I'll get this". Great people.

In NO particular order...

Rob Kealy is our imaging producer, and has been here 7 days a week for weeks now, and LOOOOONG hours too. He puts together ALL those clips you hear on the radio of the Brides, etc. And the lie detectors.. and everyhing. And I mean EVERYTHING! He's the guy to ask what the Brides look like. He interviews them. And yes, I've offered him cash for info. No go. Although he does firmly believe that that hardboiled eggs are too much work for how much food you get to eat. He has a point there...
Rick Volpatti is our steady-eddy.. or steady-ricky. He makes my Boogie show and commercial recording so easy, it's absolutely no stress. Not to mention, he's the most forgiving guy in the building.
SUZE in traffic makes sure everything gets on the air each day... and puts up with us on the air. And I can't speak for others, but I screw up ALL the time... and she's the "OOPS POLICE". SUZEE is the best.
Khazma in promotions has been here from 6am until Midnight since we launched the station, it seems. But her dedication is something to look up to.
Shalini in promotions is all over the city for Energy. She's always running around EVERYWHERE making "stuff happen" for Energy!
Matt the Engineer will hit me no matter what I write here about him...
Doug the writer is ALWAYS there when you need him, both personally or professionally. thanks Doug
Rob the boss, as mentioned above has a crush on Sarah Palin (American Politics, the Alaskan Governor). Rob has already packed his parka and is ready to move to Alaska
James Something... I forget his last name. He's the GM. But he puts up with me, so I guess he's cool.

Our sales staff (Gavin, Conan, Leyland, Pietra, Monica, Claudia) are sales people with personalities. How many companies can say they have "FUN" sales people? Except Gavin, he's weird sometimes... but he looks like Superman.

We do have a new on-air lineup by the way.

Freeway and Meg in the Morning (with Ian MacKinnon and Heath Brown) - The BEST morning show in Calgary! I still think Freeway and Meg are Ex's from another life :)
Erin Wilde 10a-3p - Calgary's most popular mid day show, and that's because Erin is genuine with her listeners. She cares and it shows.
ZACK! (ME!) from 2-6p Weekdays
Tripp West Evenings from 6p-11p. Calgary's newest and FINALLY a fun radio show on in the evenings!
JOJO on the Radio - Weekends. JOJO has been on the radio in Calgary before, and is a total PRO, bringing fun and a Woman's perspective to Energy weekends.
Carlos the Goodwill Embassador. Hey.. he's Carlos, everyone loves that guy.

Don't forget, this Saturday @ the Whiskey! Saturday Night Live to Air starts at 9, and you can get VIP access on the ENERGY FM Facebook group.
