We have such a great staff here at Lite 97.5. We have many hidden talents too. For instance one of our "voice guys" Joe (a guy you hear but you don't even realize it) is also a blacksmith. How cool is that? This morning I ran across an article about him. Check it out in theHerald-mail.Way to go Joe! If you guys are at the 41st Annual Boonesborough Daysthis weekend, say hi to him!
Did you watch theMTV Video Music Awardslast night? I know I'm getting old because I don't care about that show anymore. It's all young people that I'm either not that interested in or don't know altogether. If you DO care, here's a boildown of winners...

Friday Toy Memory: Who doesn't remember the bright colors, the smell and the hours of fun playing with Play Doh? That's my memory. I loved this commercial particularly. I didn't have the hair growing salon but I thought it was might funny!
