Folks, we have all had those icons on TV that we were smitten with. It’s often a good idea to avoid ever meeting them, because they can’t always live up to the special being that we EXPECT them to be. Not in Julie’s case. Downtown is the most vibrant, spirited beautiful soul there is! SO fun!!!
Janna is one of those wonderful humans that’s spent serious time exploring one’s individuality, seeking to discover the identity of “who we are” versus “what we do”. Her book “Me, My Selfie & Eye: A Midlife Conversation About Lost Identity, Grief & Seeing Who You Are” paints that exploration perfectly, and her new podcast series (Eyedentity Talk) “offers meaningful support and insight for anyone in the throes of midlife identity loss and confusion.”
A self-identified “Heart seeker, word builder, practical dreamer, tequila sipper, photo taker, perpetual learner, thought conveyer, star gazer, aurora chaser, cynical optimist”, Janna goes deep, and I look forward to chatting about that depth, vulnerability and self-discovery.

One of the most enjoyable drummers to watch, Brad perfectly blends his influences with a style of his own. Hang out with us as we rap about his remarkable history!

Tune in right on my page at 3pm Pacific on Thursday to fall in love all over again!
“If you need a friend, don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt, and when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there…”
One of the most revered songs from the 80s, The Promise kept young lovers’ dates memorable, and propelled When in Rome to heights rarely achieved by any band. Clive, Andrew and I have crazy road stories from around the world, and you’ll get to peek in at a few of ’em!
The man behind SO MUCH of the music, you’ll get to know the magic behind one of rock’s most-loved voices. Bozyk came to the NW radio scene as a revered rock DJ, still casting his show across the country on syndicated radio stations. What most locals don’t know is how involved Dan’s been in all aspects of promotion, production and presentation of music in the region. On top of that, DB’s got a zest for adventure & the community. We love him for ALL of these qualities, even if he’s a Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic. Come make a best new friend!

MOTORIN’!!!! Yessireee, I’ll be catching up with Kelly in quarantine, talking newfound married life with the beautiful Jenn Attar Keagy, what Kelly’s doing to stay sane while Night Ranger waits out the pandemic, and how it feels to have everyone on the planet knowing your hit songs. I love this man dearly, and if you don’t know him yet, you’ll love his heart as much as you’ve loved his voice. You can still rock in America (just have to stand 6 feet apart)!
