In case you were ever wondering, here's a little more about me...I was born and raised right here in southern Wisconsin - I was born in Waukesha and raised in Oconomowoc (proud graduate of OHS, class of 2003!).
I moved to Milwaukee after high school and got my first job in radio. I'm very proud to have worked at FM106.1 with Karen, Scott and Radar and Kerry Wolfe.
In 2011, I was offered a job "transfer" to be the Online Content Director for the Clear Channel radio stations in Madison. There, Mr. Mike Ferris offered me the job of host on 96.3 Star Country - and I couldn't be happier.
I'm a self-proclaimed nerd, mama's boy, homebody and all-around nice guy. Next time you're near a radio, turn it on and enjoy the music on 96.3 Star Country. I'm playing it just for you weekdays and Saturdays 10a-3p.

Five-year-old Claire isn't deaf, but her parents are. Since Claire knows ASL (American Sign Language), she "sings" in sign language to her parents at her school holiday concert.

UPDATE: TVLine's Michael Ausiello recently did a Q&A session and when asked who might die in this epsidoe of Nashville, he responded with "What if I told you that two lives will hang in the balance at the end of Wednesday's winter finale?"

E! Online has the exclusive scoop on which character on the TV show Nashville is going to be killed off this season!
Remember - during the season finale of the first season, Juliette's mother Jolene and her drug counselor Dante were killed off in a murder-suicide. Since then, the ratings for Nashville have been steadily increasing. Clearly, the show's creators are trying to capitalize and inject even more drama into the series.
According to the preview for the 12/11 episode, it looks like we'll find out next week, but if you just can't wait, you can RT [this article] and for every 100 RTs, they'll eliminate a name from the list of possible choices.
I don't want to spoil anything here, but if you want to see who's left on the list (and still has the potential to be killed off the show), click here.
Sometimes I feel like the "Elf on the Shelf" tradition has been around forever...but it's really only less than 10 years old!
The story of the little guy comes from a 2005 children's book called The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. In rhyme, the book explains how Santa Claus knows who is naughty and nice - by having an elf watch over the kids during the Christmas season.
The book was even made into an animated TV show back in 2011, but critics said that it wasn't great because it came across as just a big commercial for the book and the toy elf.
BUT WHATEVER! If it's working in your house, go for it! In fact, there are plenty of websites dedicated to great places for the Elf to show up, or activites for the elf to do. For example, visit www.elfontheshelfideas.com
