The Buffalo Excellence in Media Awards were fun.
Friday the 13th did not prove unlucky for Sandy Beach, our 3 PM- 6 PM host on WBEN.
The Buffalo Broadcasting Hall of Fame member can add another tribute to his mantle, winning the Radio Personality of the Year Award.
WBEN AM and FM took Station of the Year, and Jeremy White was honored for his awesome use of social media.
I got a rock.
From the "Why do people do that?" file...
I had the pleasure of visiting the spring flowers on display at the South Park Botanical Gardens.
SPBG is a true treasure, so why do dillweeds throw cigarette butts and empty juice cans in the flowers beds? And why do they strew brochures on the lawn in front of this gorgeous place?
The grammar Nazi in me chuckled a bit when I saw a sign on a door inside by the orchids: "Authorized Personal Only."
Happy to see the Amherst Town Board following East Aurora's lead on the urban farming issue.
If you've never had a farm fresh, freshly-laid egg you don't know what you are missing.
The politicians in Amherst are now working on ways to make this work for the Marks Family and others.
Good for them!
Our show on guilty musical pleasures and forgotten hits is STILL generating a lot of feedback.
Your host is enjoying picking out the three musical bumps every day, and the selection process has become one of my favorite parts of the job!
Isn't it amazing how a song like Paul Young's "Everytime You Go Away" can sound so awesome when you haven't heard it in a while?
I am glad to see Ontario considering the de jure legalization of sex-workers.
No one wants to see street hookers, but what goes on behind closed doors between consenting adults is not my concern.
Eventually, perhaps they'll have the high-end places for those with money to blow and big box outlets that are more budget-friendly.
Can you imagine the hits President Bush would be taking during a re-election campaign if his Secret Service people were involved in alleged sexual misconduct? Or if his GSA had a big blowout bash on taxpayers' dime?
The media will use pejorative words when reporting on GOP/conservative folks, but they hold President Obama close to their busoms.
Remember all the shots Bill Clinton took at George Bush when Bush was president, even as Bush was generous and glowingly complimentary when unveiling the official portrait of the Clintons?
W has been silent on President Obama.
Why are Republicans so afraid to attack Obama's policies? Will they ever grow a set?
I am not a fan of David Bellavia or Chris Collins, but I'd vote for either over Kathy "She's Everywhere! She's Everywhere!" Hochul.
It is great that Mario Williams loves guns! Good for him and shame on the NFL for discouraging its players from enjoying their Second Amendment Rights.
