Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

‘Free Beer & Hot Wings’ ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Video

This morning, the Free Beer and Hot Wings crew took their ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!  They'd been called out quite a bit to do it, and they decided to take p the challenge in as fun a way as they could.

So what did they do?

They invited all their past intern victims to come and shower them with ice water, and each intern got to select which FBHW member had tormented them the most to soak!

Pop Evil Playing a Charity Concert for a Radio DJ with Cancer

This time last year, I was working at one of our company's stations in El Paso, TX, KLAQ.  Very similar station to WGRD, and a bunch of great people down there, too!

The afternoon guy on KLAQ is this completely insane maniac named Scott Ronson, who sounds like you're having a conversation with a chainsaw.  That's really his voice.  He's a great guy, and funny as hell.

This summer, he was diagnosed with cancer in several places in his body; lungs, spine, liver...it really sucks.

Pregnant Actress Named the Sexiest Naked Actress in History!

Mr. Skin has announced the top 150 nude scenes in Hollywood history, and you probably won't be surprised at who came in at number 1.

Okay, so the headline is a little sensational, since she's not really known for being pregnant, and she wasn't pregnant when they filmed it.  I don't think...holy crap, maybe she was?

Either way, here's the top nude hottie in Hollywood history...and she won for her first full frontal nude scene ever!  Awesome.

Should the Washington Redskins Change Their Name?

Football season is here, and everyone is getting set for the end of the meaningless games, and the beginning of the real season.  Go Texans!  Sorry, I'm from Texas.

One off-season controversy that we heard a lot about this past year, is the movement to change the name of the Washington Redskins to something "less offensive to Native Americans".

First off, maybe we should make sure it's actually offensive to them.

Check Out WGRD’s New Studio – It’s Done!

You've heard us all talking about the new studio we finally got to get into this week, and how we're all getting used to it.  It's really cool, and really open, which is unusual for a lot of stations.

Most of the time, you're buried behind a million computer screens, hoping the other people in the room are still there, and you're not talking to yourself.

Way to go, guys!  That's awesome!
