Gary Michael Shannon’s career in radio has been one for the ages – a rags to slightly-nicer-rags story that, frankly, should be made into a TV show on a cable network or something.
Raised in the wild by a family of hyper-intelligent armadillos in Beaumont, Texas, Gary Shannon learned from an early age that if you’re not quick-witted, you might get hit by an 18-wheeler. He still occasionally rolls himself into a ball to escape predators, angry program directors or awkward situations.
Gary Shannon had his own nationally syndicated show on the ABC Radio Network for two years in addition to working in radio markets in lots of places you wish you could visit. But he discovered one of his truest passions one day when an upset fan beat him mercilessly over the head with an edition of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. That, combined with one too many viewings of the works of Wilford Brimley led him to a sideline career as an actor. Using his uncanny powers, he absorbed the entire history of drama and acting and began appearing on stage and in movies.
Mostly, though, Gary sticks around the 92.9 The Lake studios dreaming up new and exciting ways to annoy his morning show partner, Heather. He has been known to perform amazing feats of strength, bouts of international diplomacy in the Celtic/American arena, and to hold seminars on the proper ways to enjoy beers of the world. He is globally known for his knowledge of Chihuahua mating habits and was a pioneer of the late 1980’s “naked broadcasting” movement.
Oh, man, there was this one time when he said this thing on the air – man, it was like, funny and stuff. Woo. Good times.

Okay, this is a great opportunity to see Rod Stewart live,and in an 'intimate' setting. It's really easy to enter the contest and you can enter as many times as you like. Of course, there is a catch. You can't win if you don't enter and the only way to win this great trip is to be a member of 92.9's Lakehouse.
Hey, I thought George Zimmer owned the Men's Wearhouse. Well, as it turns out he not only doesn't "own' it, he no longer works for the huge corporation he helped build.
I'll be honest with you, before Men's Wearhouse became such a gigantic entity, I had heard stories of Zimmer's huge ego. Then I realized that you don't go from selling raincoats out of the trunk of your car to a multi-billion dollar business without a powerful ego.
So, why is the face that goes with the product in the unemployment line?
Authorities had high hopes for the latest search for the remains of the former labor leader, Jimmy Hoffa, but once again all the 'promising new leads' turned up nada. The dig has now officially been halted.
Here's a strange story. For some reason, I have a lot of friends that are chemist, engineers and biologist. I guess they keep me around because I make them feel even smarter than they already are. Now, you may think that all these highly intelligent people spend their weekends reading treatise on string theory and Schrodinger's Cat, but I'm here to tell you they don't.
I got a text from one of my friends that said, "Come to Seth's house. We're smashing a pool." I naturally assume that "smashing" is some new slang term I don't know yet, so I looked it up. It turns out that "smashing" is slang for 'coitus' as Sheldon on Big Bang Theory puts it. Well, I knew that the friend that texted me would never text anything about the subject of sex and that, factoring in the swimming pool, that there must be an even new meaning of 'smashing.'
Dorothy Baker-Flugence is not a woman you want to mess with. Dorothy has joined the ever increasing list of women who refuse to be victims. the man who tried to make her a victim went to the hospital while Dorothy continued with her errands.
Here's a great story.
Side note- the woman in the picture is NOT Dorothy. All her pics were copyright protected and I certainly don't want to cross her!
Just yesterday a friend and I were discussing the fact that Mondays just don't seem that bad anymore. Sure, we all hate when the weekend ends, but once you actually get into the day, it can even be one of the most productive days.
Well, according to a new poll, Monday is no longer the least favorite day of the week. So, what day to people dislike the most?
Celebrities are cool...they're wildly popular, they have amazing homes and drive fancy cars. They do all kinds of glamorous stuff and have great stories to tell. Who wouldn't want the opportunity to interview a celebrity?
I can remember when the name 'Jimmy Hoffa' was in the news just about every day. Not because of his disappearance, but because of all the allegations that the was a gangster and was suspected of La Cosa Nostra (by the way, that's Italian for "our thing") involvement.
Flash forward from the days when he was one of the most powerful labor leaders in history to July 30, 1975 when Hoffa just disappeared from the face of the earth. What happened to Hoffa and where was he "dumped' has been a subject of discussion for decades.
New leads in the mystery have surfaced recently and the search is on in the Oakland, Detroit area.
While searching for info on the other Beach Boys posts that I did this week, I came across this little gem. It's from a Brian Wilson tribute show back in 2009 and it features Paul Simon performing the classic "Surfer Girl."
Now, Paul Simon is a great artist, but "Surfer Girl?" Wait till you see it!
