Hi there! Welcome to my little corner on the web. I come from far, far away… a place called... Hartford. On-top on being your mid-day host on WSRS, I'm also the Program Director overseeing all things behind the scenes. I'm a huge hockey fan & the Hartford Whalers will always be my team (even though they've been gone for 16 years). Radio has been my life for close to19 years and I really can’t picture myself doing much else. On the side, I’m an instructor at Connecticut School of Broadcasting, game host for the Springfield Falcons and back-up P.A. announcer for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers AHL hockey teams.
Music is a necessity… Kings of Leon, Counting Crows, Live, Train, Pearl Jam, U2, Sublime plus Led Zeppelin and the Allman Brothers Band are some of my favorites. Listen workdays for the latest entertainment news, contests and of course, great music! Thanks for stopping by!! -K
Just a little more about what makes me tick...
Favorite Movie: JAWS... Robert Shaw's "Quint" is the best movie character EVER! (quick trivia question: What kind of beer does Quint drink? Clue: It's made a nice comeback) Tombstone, Beautiful Girls, The Hangover and Old School are right up there too.
On the menu: Jimmy Buffet had it right.. nothing beats the perfect Cheeseburger! Pizza rocks too!!... oh and beer!... local beer! Berkshire Brewing Co in Western Mass, Olde Burnside Brewing in CT to name a few. Always on the lookout for something new to try. Email me with ideas!
...National Candy Corn Day. Enjoy a handful of this sweet Fall treat. And, what perfect timing. National Candy Corn Day comes just a day before Halloween. That means you can eat plenty of it, before you go out trick or treating (I have it for breakfast).
Candy corn can be enjoyed all year long. Place it in a candy dish any time and watch it disappear by the handful. By far, the vast majority of candy corn is consumed during the Fall months, with both Halloween and Thanksgiving being the biggest times to eat it.
Candy corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger, and first manufactured by the Wunderle Candy Company. The Goelitz Candy company was the first to manufacture mass quantities around the turn of the century.
Candy corn consists primarily of corn syrup, honey, and sugar. There's lots of carbs (sugar), but it's fat free!? Happy National Candy Corn Day!!
