In addition to saying semi-compelling things on the radio, I am your Springfield Falcons game host all season at the MassMutual Center. Look for me in the stands & on the ice and maybe I'll hook you up with a puck or a t-shirt. The Birds are back at "The Nest" on Saturday vs. the Hartford Wolf Pack with a special start time of 8pm. Hockey night in Springfield!!

Hi there! Welcome to my little corner on the web. I come from far, far away… a place called... Hartford. I'm a huge hockey fan & the Falcons are my team. You'll see me in the stands all season hosting games at the MassMutual Center!! The Hartford Whalers will always be my first love and my dream is to get the NHL back to CT/Western MA. Radio has been my life for close to 19 years and I really can’t picture myself doing much else. On the side, I’m an instructor at CT School of Broadcasting and back-up P.A. announcer for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers AHL hockey team.
Music is a necessity… Kings of Leon, Counting Crows, Live, Train, Pearl Jam, U2, Sublime plus Zeppelin and the Allman Brothers Band are some of my favorites. Listen weekday afternoons for the latest entertainment news, contests plus On-Time Traffic to get you home and of course great music! Thanks for stopping by!! -K
Just a little more about what makes me tick...
Favorite Movie: JAWS... Robert Shaw's "Quint" is the best movie character EVER! (quick trivia question: What kind of beer does Quint drink? Clue: It's made a nice comeback) Tombstone, Beautiful Girls, The Hangover and Old School are right up there too.
Best Concerts: Blues Traveler at the Oakdale in ‘96, Gov't Mule at the Oakdale in ‘04, Edwin McCain at the Iron Horse summer ‘04, Pat McGee Band at the Webster Theatre winter '04 (in a blizzard!)… most recently Adele acoustic in the MIX studio! AMAZING!
On the menu: Jimmy Buffet had it right.. nothing beats the perfect Cheeseburger!!... oh and beer!... local beer! Berkshire Brewing Co., Olde Burnside Brewing & Harpoon to name a few. Always on the lookout for something new to try. Email me with ideas!

Here's what's new at the movies this weekend...
Out Of The Furnace
From Scott Cooper, the critically-acclaimed writer and director of 'Crazy Heart', comes a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell's brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so - with nothing left to lose - Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother. The impressive cast of Christian Bale and Woody Harrelson are rounded out by Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.
Here's what's hot...
Hunger Games: Catching Fire
'THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE' begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever. Starring: Jennifer Lawrence , Josh Hutcherson , Liam Hemsworth , Elizabeth Banks & Wes Bentley.
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind 'Tangled' and 'Wreck-It Ralph', presents 'Frozen' a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey-teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven-to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.From Scott Cooper, the critically-acclaimed writer and director of 'Crazy Heart', comes a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice.

... Microwave Day!! Microwaves excel at reheating most types of leftovers. Microwave popcorn is so popular that it’s become a source of workplace conflict. (Don't ever nuke fish at work... social faux pas) Lots of people find the microwave more efficient than the kettle for heating water for tea. Softening butter or chocolate is simpler in the micro than on the stove. Let's take a day and say thanks to our time-saving friend!
Nuke something tasty today to celebrate!!
...Christmas Tree Week -- The first full week in December!! Do you prefer a real tree or something less traditional?.. take a look!
MMMMMMMM Festive AND Delicious!
...Bathtub Party Day! Draw yourself a tub full of warm water. Add a few bath oil beads, and Voila! You're ready to hop in and "soak it" in the bathtub. Ahh, how soothing and relaxing!
Don't let anything disturb the peace, quiet, and serenity of your bath. Turn off your phone. Put on your favorite music to a volume where you can't hear the doorbell ring.
Open a bottle of wine, and have some snacks within reach. It's sure going to be a great time.
Did you know? Bathtub Party Day is a copyrighted holiday. It was created and is provided, courtesy of the great folks at Wellcat.com
Have a happy Bathtub Party Day.
...Santa's List Day! Have you been good all year? Have you been Naughty? Or, have you been nice? Santa knows.
Santa's Elves have been everywhere, checking up on children all over the world, to see who has been naughty, and who has been nice. Thanks to the hard work of his elves, Santa now has two lists. The short list contains the names of a few children who have been naughty. A much longer list is filled with the names of children who have been good all year long.
Which list are you on?
