American Idol: A Little ROCK, A Little ROLL!
Last night, the Top 9 contestants on American Idol tore into the songbook of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, again, for the most part, delivered ROCKING performances.  In fact, Moon and I were chatting this morning about the fact that this season of American Idol is very much like this season of…
Winning UGLY!
Has March ever been THIS maddening?  Monday's National Championship game had all the makings of a classic.  On one side, you had the U Conn Huskies, who rebounded from a rather average 9-9 record in the Big East conference to storm through the conference tournament and the NCAA tournament.  On the o…

My Bloody Brackets!
In my 13 years here at WBKR, I have acquired quite a reputation for doing very well in the NCAA Tournament pool.  I have won the jackpot a couple of times and am almost always a force in the final weekend of action.  But, as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end . .…
Handicapping the Dancing Stars!
Season 12 of Dancing With The Stars debuts tonight and the pressing question is "Will anyone watch?"  The producers of Dancing have taken a lot of heat for this season's cast.  In fact, many faithful fans have suggested that there really aren't "stars" in this year's batch of hop…

4 Ways To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
If you’re “celebrating” St. Patrick’s day by simply donning your favorite green t-shirt, you’re doing it wrong. Do it right this year: parade through the streets, pack your bags for Dublin, get pelted by the contents of t…
