On Waking Up At 4:15 AM

OK, let's get one thing very clear - I am NOT a morning person. It can take me hours to become something approaching civil when the alarm goes off. So what exactly was I thinking when I agreed to do the morning show at WDHA when management at the radio station approached me with the offer last May?

My wife is what you might call "terminally perky." She can have a pounding migraine and come bouncing into the house with a big smile on her face, laughing with the kids. She's better known as the "anti-Jim" among people who know the two of us well.

So anyway, it's up at that ridiculous hour and off to two different, full-time jobs before getting home somewhere between 8 and 9 o'clock at night. Hey, it's a tough job, but someone has to do it, right?

You were never a morning person. Can remember the Sunday's I had to call you just to let you know that mass was starting in half an hour.
"Just wanted to be sure that you were planning on joining us." Good thing you lived about 2 mintues away.

Guess some things just don't change.

"Guess some things just don't change."

The only thing that's changed is that I now get paid to get up early.

Now how did you know that it was me?

Don't let it go to your head but I always keep track my friends.

Do you post your bands schedule anywhere?

Ellen -

It had to be either you or Chris Lewis! The band's schedule can be found here -

We'll be in Rockaway at Tavern On the Rocks in a couple of weeks.
