Kathleen Madigan On The Rocker Morning Show

Tune in tomorrow morning as we welcome back one of the funniest comedians, man or woman, on the planet Kathleen Madigan.  I've been a fan since the 80s and always thought she had some of the best material.  She seems to touch a "midwestern nerve" with a lot of her stuff and I can't wait to see her at the State Theatre on September 30th.

Watch Chris Evans (Captain America) Message To Local Cancer Survivor

One of our long time friends, Dustan Colyer has been battling and has beaten cancer since he was a baby.  To say that he's one of the bravest, biggest-hearted people I've ever heard of, let alone met, would be an understatement.  We have been fortunate to have Dustan and the rest of the DC Strong crew on the Rocker Morning Show several times.  Unfortunately, the fight isn't over and he's always in our thoughts.

15th Anniversary Of 9/11 In Bronson Park

It has been 15 years since that fateful day that, once again, changed our lives forever.  I say once again because, unfortunately, there have been many "fateful" days in our nation's history.  Sheriff Rick Fuller brought up an interesting point this morning on our show.  The 15 year olds weren't even born when the tragedy occurred.  For that matter the 21 year olds probably don't remember that day either.

Need Ideas For Labor Day?

I don't know about you but I've got a list of things to do for Labor Day weekend.  The list consists of one item: leave me alone.  What I really mean is let me just enjoy the simple pleasures in life.  Family, friends, food & drinks.  Then I got to thinking, what are the other simple pleasures that our lives don't seem to have room for anymore.
