Producer Joe Targets Improving His Firearms Skills at Barracks 616 [Sponsored]

Producer Joe is known for his no-holds-barred stunts on "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show."

Running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Getting an early start on an I-196 ribbon cutting in downtown Grand Rapids. Giving his own rendition of 4 Non-Blondes' "What's Up?" Taking a bath at a real-estate open house. Doing a duet, of sorts, with Hot Wings to sing Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" with a German accent. Trying a bed of nails with Hot Wings on a visit with a circus sideshow performer.

The stunts, coupled with his off-beat insights, regaling repartee and signature laugh, highlight his passionate approach to life and work.

He shows such passion with his hobbies, and is taking aim with handgun instruction at Barracks 616.
