"DID I STUTTER?!"

Fans of NBC's 'The Office' know that line all too well, and this Saturday, August 24th, you'll have the chance to see Leslie David Baker, the actor that said those three words as 'Stanley Hudson' on the long running NBC comedy as he will make an appearance for the Rubber Duck's "The Office" theme night!

In addition, the first 1000 guests through the gates will get a 'Kevin Malone w/ his infamous chili' bobblehead that commemorates another epic episode.  (Brian Baumgartner who played Kevin Malone was originally slated to attend) 

First Pitch is 7:05 PM as your Akron Rubber Ducks take on the Richmond Flying Squirrels and there will be post-game fireworks sponsored by our sister station, 97.5 WONE-FM

Back To School

And so it begins.  Schedules change, lunches need made, school is back in!

I hope you enjoyed this summer with your children.  Before I came to WQMX I worked at The Summit for 3 1/2 years.  We were fully automated mostly 

and so I recorded my show each week day morning and was off.  Andrew was just beginning first grade when I started there.  I was able to be a "room mom"

for that time, and summers were spent  mostly at the JCC pool.  It was the most wonderful time and for that I do not ever regret leaving the previous radio station, 

WKDD.   To have that time with my child was precious.  Now he is in his last year at University, and as we took note Friday would be the last move, I was over overjoyed.

Not at that, but that he was back at school and I could get my house back in order!  My grocery bill will be going way down, and the need to cook will dwindle!

I never thought it would be that easy.  When he was young, I never wanted to be apart from him.  Funny how that can change!  I say this with a chuckle.  I do

however love being an almost empty-nester.  He wants to move to New York at some point after graduation, and I wish him the best.  I will visit no doubt, but 

there are many adventures for my husband and I to have on our own again!  Can't wait!

Dinosaur Dinner?

For the first time in a long time, I was lucky enough to go to the Cleveland Natural History Museum.  I was there for a formal dinner with Windy, and it was sensational.

Cool place, and the food was great.  Plus, how often do you get to eat dinner with a Tyrannosaurus Rex?   

Our Table Was Right There!

And we got to see Balto! The REAL Balto, (although stuffed) but the one of the most famous dogs ever, that did REAL heroic deeds, called, and calls Cleveland home.  (Pic Above)  

As we walked around I was reminded how cool that entire place is.  In fact, that entire area has been so revitalized it really needs to be seen.

That whole University Circle area is wonderful, and it's not far from Little Italy - Yum!

This Fall head on up there. Lots to do. Fun!

Scott and Sarah played it for you first this morning, and then we gave it another listen tonight during Trending Tracks, new music from Blake Shelton! "Hell Right" features Trace Adkins, reuniting the two singers. They last collaborated together on "Hillbilly Bone" which was a #1 hit for Blake and Trace.

This new song was once again co-written by Hardy, who also co-wrote Blake's most recent #1 "God's Country".

“This song is about taking things to the max,” Blake said in a press release. “You can raise hell or you can raise hell right. It’s about cutting loose and having fun the right way. I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles these days, but when I hear songs like this on the radio, I am immediately thinking about being back home and what I’d be doing if I was there. The first time I heard ‘God’s Country’ I was on my ranch in Oklahoma. As a guy who actually lives this lifestyle, ‘Hell Right’ hits me in the soul now just as much as ‘God’s Country’ did then.”

Blake Shelton will be bringing his new music to Youngstown State University's Stambaugh Stadium, along with Justin Moore and Tyler Farr on Saturday, September 21st! Click here for details and tickets!

MOVIE PREVIEW - New This Week!

47 Meters Down:Uncaged

Seems every summer there is room for a good "a shark might eat me" movie, and here we go again.  I'm fine with this. Seems we never get tired of watching to see if, and how bad someone is acutally going to get dogged down by a hungry shark.

 

 

Mindless summer action fun that's not a cartoon, or talking animals.  I'm in!

 

Good Boys

This is a hard R rated flick that stars a bunch of kids in early adolescence.  This looks really funny at times, and even though this stars kids, this is more than likely not nearly appropriate for young kids. This coming of age movie should be a pretty big hit.

 

 

I can't wait to see this, as it looks really funny and relateable.

Always one to give back to his Hometown, LeBron James made a trip back to Akron to unveil some new additions and improvements at his "I Promise" School on West Market street on Wednesday.

A media lab, a family training center, a family resource wing and an area called “believers bend”, which highlights the achievements of some of history's biggest underdogs, were among the new additions inside the facility, but the highlight of the day was outside:  An updated and state-of-the-art Basketball Court!

LeBron and the rest of the "Fab Five" (his former high school teammates from St.V) along with Head Coach Dru Joyce were all on hand to help christen the court with a 5 on 5 game against the kids.

It's Tribe Time - NOW!

It's hard not to get caught up in what's going on with the Tribe right now. Erasing a 12 game defecit in the Major Leagues is pretty much unheard of, but they have done it.  What a season it has been so far!!  The past day or so has not been the best, but the Tribe is getting ready to make a strong stretch run.

The Tribe sure puts on a GREAT show!

tribe 1

I know the Browns are the flavor of the month, but they don't play for about a month, and being more than fair, have not won anything yet.  I understand fans are excited for the Browns, and should be.  But the Tribe is a three straight time divisional winner, and on verge of a fourth.  We will have our time to be all Brownie, but right now it's time to cheer on the Indians.

 

The All- Star Game was an amazing success!

tribe 2

There seems to a a magic around the Tribe right now, and it's starting to look like they may be one of the real elite teams. Go to a game.  It's not as expensive as you may think, and you'll be part of something special -  and you can get tickets!  Go see the Tribe when they get back from New York! 

Go Tribe!

If you need a new pic for your Social Media, a quick trip to the 'Fields of Hope' in Avon or Sandusky the first week of September may be just what you need to find that perfect selfie!

Prayers For Maria, an organization started by the family of Maria McNamara, who lost her battle with cancer at 7 years old, has announced that both of their memorial Sunflower fields are expected to bloom in the first week of September. 

The first seeds were planted in 2014 at the Avon location on Chester Road off of Jaycox Road, and the newer location is next to Cedar Point's Express Hotel in Sandusky.

Check out Prayers For Maria on INSTAGRAM for the latest updates so you can plan your trip when they bloom!
