Do You Like Your Job?

When I was a kid in high school one my first jobs was a busboy at Perry Boy's Smorgasbord in Salinas, California. You know, an all-you-can-eat joint, I lasted less than a week. I was lucky to get a gig working all night at KWYT-FM, which happened to be an automated "Beautiful Music" station.


I loved it and as they say the "rest is history." Are you happy where you work?






A job in Hollywood or the music industry might sound fun.  But would it really make you happy?  Don't think too hard, because apparently the answer is YES.


A new study surveyed people in a bunch of different industries to find out which jobs make us the happiest.  And three of the top five are GLAMOUR jobs that come with at least some level of fame.


The five jobs with the highest satisfaction rate are video game producer . . . film director . . . music producer . . . comedian . . . and neurosurgeon.


It seems like they should have put "successful" in front of a few of those though.  And since when have COMEDIANS been happy?


Unfortunately the five jobs that make us the most miserable are a lot more common:  Stock clerk . . . cashier . . . janitor . . . machine feeder at a factory . . . and telemarketer.


The study also looked at which states are most satisfied with their jobs overall.  The top five are Hawaii, Alaska, Wyoming, New Mexico, and West Virginia.


In last place is Massachusetts, followed by Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Oregon.

Flu Is Here

The flu has hit many families, schools, and businesses this winter with a nasty strain that has been deadly at times.  The nastiness that is the flu has even hit many of us here at the old radio ranch.  While there may not be a way to absolutely prevent you from getting flu, the CDC does offer some great tips on how to prevent it.  Good luck and stay healthy!

Who Could Use A Couple Thousand?

What would you do with $2,018?  What would you do with $30,000? 


There are a few things that come to mind when I think about what I would do with that kind of extra cash.  Buy a new vehicle, go on a great trip, or maybe just pay some bills.


Here's the bad news, I CAN'T win, but you CAN!  Starting Monday, listen for the keyword given at 7a, 9a, 1p, 3p, and 5p and then text it to 67760.  $2,018 will be given away daily and a grand prize of $30,000.
