  • We made it through safely!!

    What a wild ride Wichita!! No fatalities!! Lots of clean up to do but we made it!! Special thanks to all the Weather pro's!! All of our good friends here in the KFDI building are the BEST PERIOD!!!! Great KFDI Weather crew!!! YOU ROCK !!!!! One thing stands out in my mind from the other night while I was at the Hyatt downtown Wichita during the storms. There was a guy who was obviously from another part of the country that doesnt or hasnt experienced Tornadoes before. The entire bunch that was with him for that matter. They were taking pictures of the tv as we were watching Merill Tiller forecast the situation. They were just texting away to there families and friends back home that they were part of the storm. In a weird way I think they were having fun. They acted like it was COOL!! WOW!! The nations eyes were upon Wichita the other night!! This morning on the weather channel there was a guy named Randy Keith who lost his house on the southside of the ICT and all he was happy about was that he found his Beatles Vinyl in the reckage!! Thats awesome !! We are alright!! Be safe Wichita!!

  • Queen with Adam Lambert? He might fit well!!

    In a new interview with Billboard, Queen's Roger Taylor says the surviving members of the band will play four shows in total with Adam Lambert this year. Currently only a June 30 gig in Moscow has been announced, but Taylor says Queen and Lambert will play alongside Elton John in Kiev this summer, as well as a pair of shows at the Hammersmith Apollo in early July. "We're really excited about it," Taylor says. "Adam... of course he has this unbelievable range, like Freddie [Mercury] had range. Adam can really cover it. He's an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality."

  • Do people at stoplights take longer nowadays?

    Since the days of cell phones are upon us and texting it seems that everyone loves to text while at the red lights. That is safer than driving but it doesnt help getting people moving when the light turns green. I have been doing a test at all the stoplights and have been watching who doesnt see the light turn green cause of them textin. It just seems that now if there are 15 cars at the light that only a low number of them get through before the light turns red again. Just make sure when your texting at the light you also pay attention to the one thing you should be doing at that moment and DRIVE!! I am going to tell you that I am guilty too!! :0) Good Day to ya!!

  • My new neighbors to the east....

    Well it's springtime again and I have been spending my free time out in the yard bagging leaves picking up tree limbs and of course any stray dog poo. We also got new neighbors to the east of us and they bought the house that has been rented out for the last 12 years to every crazy person in Kansas. So now all of the neighborhood is hoping that these new PERMANENT neighbors are alot cooler than the last 10 renters who have the cops next door every other day. We hope the house isnt cursed. All of us neighbors got together last summer and we all wanted to throw in 50 bucks a month and rent it out ourselves so no one weird would move in. Is that bad ? I didnt think so ...I thought it was funny!!

  • Is Keith Richards one of the reasons for the delay of the 50th Annivesary Tour ?

    Well Fox listeners if you were hoping The Rolling Stones would hit the road to celebrate their 50th anniversary this year, it looks like that won't happen until 2013. My sources told Rolling Stone that one reason for the delay is the questionable health of Keith Richards, which has raised concerns about his ability to make it through a worldwide tour. Instead, it's possible that the band will avoid traveling in favor of camping out in major cities for multi-night stands in arenas.

  • I have the answers for the bright light!! Maybe!! lol

    Here is the website for the lowdown on the flash of bright light this morning here in Kansas!!

  • 60 minutes to air this sunday a profile on Aerosmith from the past few years

    This Sunday on 60 Minutes, the show will air a profile about Aerosmith and all the personal turmoil the band has endured over the past few years. In a CBS News clip posted online, interviewer Lara Logan tells Steven Tyler that his bandmates love and respect him, but that Joey Kramer also said Tyler "tortured" him, while Tom Hamilton characterized him as "unspeakably cruel." Tyler acknowledged that, "I've said many things to all those guys that I should never have said, that I didn't mean," but he also stood up for himself by explaining, "You know what? I'm going to be big-headed right now. I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone's chops is what got this band to where it is today. In the end, I get a really good song and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I'm that good." Despite the interpersonal drama, the band has stuck together for 40 years amid many highs and lows, and they have overcome many rifts. Today, Tyler says, "This band's better than it's ever been. It's not because I'm old now and the band's been around forever and it's our last tour. It's because this band is that good."

  • The latest on the new Tenacious D album and tour!!

    More details have come out about the new album from Tenacious D, Rize of the Fenix, which is due on May 15. For the new work, the duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass re-teamed with longtime collaborator/drummer Dave Grohl, who also performed on both of the duo's previous LPs. Under the Radar reports that the band reconvened at producer John Kimbrough's home, where they recorded the album in his garage. The D will play a number of festivals this summer, including Sasquatch!, Download, and Rock am Ring & Rock Im Park.

  • Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary photo book is for sale

    The Rolling Stones will issue a 50th anniversary photo book, aptly titled The Rolling Stones: 50, on July 12. July 12 is significant because it's the exact the date in 1962 when the band debuted at the Marquee Club in London's Oxford Street. The new book will feature 700 illustrations, 300 of them in color and many taken from the archive of the U.K.'s Daily Mirror, which contains the largest newspaper collection of Rolling Stones photography. The band said in a statement: "This is our story of 50 fantastic years. We started out as a blues band playing the clubs and more recently we've filled the largest stadiums in the world with the kind of show that none of us could have imagined all those years ago. Curated by us, it features the very best photographs and ephemera from and beyond our archives."

  • The story of Stairway to Heaven ...

    The lyrics came to Robert Plant in a flash of inspiration when he and Jimmy Page were sitting by the fireplace at Headley Grange with Page strumming the intro chords. Said Plant: "I was holding a pencil and paper, and for some reason I was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out the words, 'There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold/And she's buying a stairway to heaven.' I just sat there and looked at the words and then I almost leapt out of my seat."

  • Do Tattoos Make a Person Look Sexy? ? Here is the latest Poll!

    Thirty percent of people with a tattoo say the ink makes them feel sexier, but 45 percent of those without the permanent body art disagree, saying it makes those individuals less attractive. The findings come from a new Harris Poll that shows one in five U.S. adults have at least one tattoo.

  • The Classic Rockers are still a rocking!! Here is what they are up too!

    It looks like the planned Buffalo Springfield reunion tour is not happening this year after all, according to guitarist/vocalist Richie Furay. In a recent radio interview on WBAI/New York, Furay said that "I was actually told, 'We’re doing this 30-day tour.' And Neil [Young] is just fickle, and even though it boils down to all three of us making a decision... without the three of us, really there can't be anything that would even resemble a Buffalo Springfield. I gotta say that we probably lost a little bit of our momentum. That isn't to say it couldn’t be picked up again, but I certainly don't see anything happening this year." Buffalo Springfield played their first reunion show at Young's Bridge School Benefit concert in the fall of 2010. The next summer they played a six-date theater tour in California before performing at the Bonnaroo festival in 2011.
