The MVR - MVP!

Written by
A few days ago, Windy and I took a short road trip over to Youngstown to see a Big Band Show (more tomorrow).  But she, as a native of The Yo, said we should eat first at a local place called the MVR   I Love This Sign On The Window! The amazing MVR has been there since 1927, or the year Charles Lindburgh flew across the Atlantic for perspective.  That's a long time ago,…

Browns - It's Leadership!

Written by
The entire area, Facebook, Sports Radio, and TV, are all talking about the 2-5 Browns.  They have been very disappointing, and fans are frustrated including me. I've heard all the talking heads, experts and fans.  Lots of yammer about this and that, but it's far simpler than most will articulate. It's not about a Left Tackle, who's playing and who's not.  It's not about injuries, or Cover 2, sealing the edge, running Chubb more, officiating,…

Garth Changed And Changes Everything!

Written by
Now that Garth has come and gone, and the dust has settled at the Dusty Armadillo we can resume our lives. What a show! The crowd was huge and so was the show.  It's always funny to hear Garth make fun of himself on stage, and joke about how half the crowd wasn't born yet when he hit the scene.  It's sort of true, but still funny.  But what is true, is what Garth did…

We Go Way Back!

Written by
Last night was one of the coolest things I've done in 38 years of doing morning shows on big Country radio stations across the country.  Garth Brooks came to the Dusty Armadillo for a Dive Bar Tour stop.  A place that holds about 700 ish.  What a great time!  Even to say the sentence, "Garth is playing the Dusty" still sounds strange. Windy and I were lucky enought to get to go, and it's an…

I drive by this business a few times a week in Portage County off RT. 43, that has this gigantic Rhino in its front yard.  Looks like concrete, and it has weigh about a trillion pounds. The funny thing is, it's on a chain that secures it to the ground.  I heard an urban legend that it was stolen once. I have no idea if that is true.  What, did Thor and the Incredible Hulk…

A 50 Year Wait!

Written by
I can honestly say I have never waited 50 years to see one of my favorites in concert. Until now.  As a young kid, for some reason, I became facinated with the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. Maybe because my parents were fans.  I mean I was about 4.  I have listened to his music my entire life.  From the old to the very new.  (He has a new album out  #1…

Joints And Dives !

Written by
A week or so ago, we were in Las Vegas for a couple days. When Windy and I travel, one of things we really try to do is find new places to eat.  We like the joints, Ma and Pa places, and dives in general.    As we pulled into Vegas after a couple days at Zion National Park, we found this taco joint who's name eludes me at this minute, but it was incredible. …

Garth - It's A Thing Now!

Written by
This Garth Brooks thing is far more than a contest.  It's a thing now.  I think most understand, although may be living in denial, that the Dusty holds about 700 people.  And clearly, there are more than that who want to go. Buy a  LOT!  But that is all the more reason to try to win your way in.  We have a ton of ways to possibly win, and you can take advantage of all…

Murray Made Me Misty

Written by
One of the coolest things that has just randomly happened to me in a long time took place this weekend. I was out in the yard taking a typical Fall mow, when an elderly man stopped in the driveway of the old house and started walking towards me.  He asked me my name and I told him, I asked him his, we shook hands and he said, "Murray."  (Not his real name) He told me…

Man, Do We Need This!

Written by
Yes, it is true! Garth Brooks is bringing his Dive Bar Tour to the Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown in Portage County October 28, it's a Monday.  Heck, it would make no difference if it was Doomsday, you would still go, and so would I!  It just feels good to say that, "Garth is coming to my favorite bar!" What a great day for Country Music, The Dusty, the area and of course us here at…
