Where's the time gone?

It has been exactly one year since I moved to the Cedar Valley and took over afternoons here on Rock 108! I moved to the area from Ames so while I still lived in Iowa, I was moving to a place I had only visited a handful of times. When I moved up here, I didn't have my own place. I was able to move up here because a very close friend of mine, Chase Winkey, made arrangements with his Grandfather Terry to allow me to stay in a spare bedroom he had until I got my feet on the ground.

This day is even more special to me because Chase was killed in a tragic accident earlier this summer. He was the type of person that could light up a room. He had a personality comparable to no one. No matter what your race, creed, religion, the man treated you with the utmost respect. Up until his tragic accident, we had talked on the phone weekly. Whether the conversations were about how awesome Fred Hoiberg was or if it was just to shoot the s*it about what was going on in our lives, Chase always seemed to put me in a good mood no matter what was going on.

I can't believe it's been a year already. It feels like I was just moving up to the Cedar Valley and starting my first full time radio position yesterday! I think that shows how much fun I've had over the last year and hope to continue to have as much fun with my friends, co-workers, and most importantly you the listener!

Here's to more awesome times with you. Rock on!
