K-105.3 Newsletter – July 7, 2015


craig temp headshotThe holiday weekend is really over. For real. Now it’s July and Summer. For real. Hot and humid. For real. Last week I told a story on the air about my former boss and mentor who passed away. He was only 54 years old. Gone way too soon. Remembering him and how big and full of life he was, and now seeing how small and sick he had gotten reminds me about the preciousness of life. Not to get all preachy, but it’s a  reminder that people can be gone in an instant. It’s important to keep those close to you in the know about what they mean to you. Before it’s too late.

OK, back to lighter topics! Win Faster Horses Tickets with Scott Clow on Thursday at Promise Jewelers and on Friday with Subway in Michigan Center. And next week is Hot Air Jubilee time. Where has the year gone?
