Rocky



Proud Dad!



So proud of my son Dylan. I just got back from a fun weekend visiting him in Ohio. And on the way out, he gave me a copy of one of his band's new CDs.

I've seen these guys a bunch of times. They've got a killer sound that's a mix of blues & rock.



And in case you're wondering, that's my son guzzling the liquor bottle. Just a prop, right Dylan? :)

Rocky, Lissa & Freddie's DWTS Picks

"Every year someone comes out of this looking like a donkey!"
--Kevin Costner (Draft Day)

Today was DANCING WITH THE STARS DRAFT DAY on the morning show. We each got to pick 3 dancers. The first one to have all 3 of their dancers eliminated is the big loser and will feel the wrath of the other 2.

Who will be this year's donkey?

Our picks:

1ST ROUND
Freddie: Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air")
Lissa: Bethany Mota (YouTube Beauty Guru)
Rock: Antonio Sabato Jr. ("General Hospital" hearthrob)

2ND ROUND
Freddie: Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong, "Up In Smoke")
Lissa: Lolo Jones (Olympic Track & Field Star)
Rock: Janel Parrish (Mona on "Pretty Little Liars")

3RD ROUND
Freddie: Lea Thompson (Lorraine McFly in "Back to the Future")
Lissa: Sadie Robertson (Willie Robertson's 17 yr old daughter on "Duck Dynasty")
Rock: (Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels from "Mean Girls")

Those are the picks. How do you think it will all shake out? Which one of us will be this season's BIG LOSER?

Can We Talk? Joan Rivers remembered.



Another comedy voice was silenced today. But now, the more I think of it, Joan Rivers roared so loud, her words will live on forever. She was constantly pushing the envelope and was never afraid to say what was on her mind. Yeah, sometimes she pushed too hard. But that's what made Joan, Joan.

And without Joan Rivers, there would be no Roseanne...no Kathy Griffin...no Chelsea Handler...no Sarah Silverman...or any of the other great female comics that followed in her footsteps and tried roaring just as loud.

Here's a few of my fave lines that Joan leaves with us.

We're still laughing.

1--Why should a woman cook? So her husband can say 'My wife makes a delicious cake' to some hooker?

2--My best birth control now is just to leave the lights on.

3--Half of all marriages end in divorce—and then there are the really unhappy ones.

4--I wish I had a twin so I could know what I look like without plastic surgery.

5--I don't exercise. If God had wanted me to bend over he would have put diamonds on the floor.

6--I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking.

7--Looking fifty is great—if you're sixty.

8--The first time I see a jogger smiling, I'll consider it.

9--I must admit I am nervous about getting Alzheimer's. Once it hits, I might tell my best joke and never know it.

10--I've learned to have absolutely no regrets about any jokes I've ever done.

What Did You Learn from your 20's?

This week on GIRL TALK with Melissa from The Weekender we reflected on our 20's.  What was the biggest thing you took with you from your 20's?

I learned how to be independent.  After college, I moved to Ohio and lived in a small apartment on the first floor of a house.  I thought this was the coolest thing ever.  My own place!  But I didn't know the first thing about cooking, cleaning, or keeping the place up and running. It was on the job training.  And for me, the ultimate learning experience.

And I also learned how to drive a stick! :)

How about YOU?

Here's a few comments from listeners...

--I wish I had the knowledge in my 20's that I have now...but what I have learned is what is meant to be will ALWAYS find it's way & does not need to be forced.
--I didn't think that I had a look at price tags so in my 20s I had that same attitude so I was robbing Peter to pay Paul until one day they took my car so I went to my parents for help and for once my parents did not help me. They said "figure it out" and I did. I learned a really good lesson from that!
--In my 20s I learned that it's ok to be single. Worry about your goal because there is always time for a relationship.
--I'm only 24, and realizing just how real those college loans are at a few hundred $$$ a month on top of rent, gas, groceries, cell phone, etc. I have an elementary teaching degree and of course I'm still trying to get a permanent position.
--Don't loan money to friends!
--I learned to not compare my accomplishments to anyone else's.  We all do things in our time. Who cares if all your friends are married, that doesn't mean they are all happy.
--I learned to talk things out instead of getting angry and letting things ruin my day. This has made every day happier!
--I learned that student loans are real, and not "so off in the future".
--I learned it's all downhill after 25 (I turn 47 next month)
--I learned not to base life decisions on a guy. I have 2 daughters and my hope is they learn from my experience.
--I had triple digits partners, thought it was cool then, but now not so much. Alot of women don't take me serious or won't give me the time of day because of how many women I've been with....they think I'm after one thing. So my lesson learned is, don't sleep around.  Even though I was safe, its not cool. They remember.
--I learned the value of patience and taking my time with pretty much everything.

Ice Bucket Challenge is On!!!


Friday I was issued the Ice Bucket Challenge by my friend Brian Coe of the Penguins.

It's a simple concept.  Someone accepts the challenge, records themselves dumping a bucket of ice water over their head, then challenges 3 or more friends to do the same.  If you are challenged, you have 24 hours.  It's all about raising awareness for charity.

Ice Bucket Challenge


Get a bucket of water and fill it with ice.


Lift the bucket...


Dump the bucket...


Feel the chill...


Call out at least 3 of your friends to complete the challenge for themselves.

I issued the challenge to Lissa & Fast Freddie Friday afternoon.  I'm still waiting...

Pens for Plugs



I know you have probably followed the continuing saga of Freddie the pen thief.

Yesterday we came up with a way to keep Freddie from stealing our pens. It involved string and duct tape.
Yeah we basically turned the KRZ Studio into a bank lobby...a pen attached by string!

And now we want to take it one step further. That's where you come in.

Send us your pen and we'll mention your business on the air. It's PENS FOR PLUG!
You send us a pen...and we'll plug your business on the air.

Deal?

Here's the address:

Rocky and Lissa
98.5 KRZ
305 Highway 315
Pittston, PA 18640

*Must be a working pen

*Pens becoming the property of Rocky & Lissa
*We'll do our best to keep them out of the hands of Freddie

It's a twister with teeth!

Good news SHARKNADO fans.  They'll be more sharks in the air next summer!  SHARKNADO 3 has already been given the green light.  Keep your eyes to the skies.  Maybe sharks will hit PA!

As we recover from Thursday night's shark attack on NYC, here's my favorite lines from SHARKNADO 2.


Tara Reid:  The shark kept chasing me, like he knew who I was.
Ian Ziering:  He didn't know who you were.  If he did, he would've run the other way.

Ian:  Anyone plays me in a movie, it's gonna be me!

Matt Lauer:  I don't want to alarm anyone, but there is a concern that New York could be facing a Shark storm.

Al Roker:  Think of it this way, this is a twister...with teeth.

Ian:  Even the Sharknados are tougher in New York.

Mark McGrath:  You know what it just did, don't you?  It jumped the shark!

Robert Klein:  This is the big apple.  When something bites us, we bite back.

Ian:  They're sharks.  They're scary.  And no one wants to be eaten.

We Rocked Knoebels



What a GREAT day of fun we had at Knoebels yesterday!  Early Thursday we filled a bus (THANK YOU JZ Tours) wiith littles that are on the waiting list with Big Brother/Big Sister of the Bridge.  The idea:  give kids on the waiting list a taste of what the mentoring program is all about.



Right after lunch, we let everyone loose at America's largest free admission amusement park.  It's Friday morning, and I'm still recovering!!!



That's my new buddy Dylan as we started our trip up The Flume.



I didn't get the memo about bringing a towel.



We helped celebrate the Twister rollercoaster's 15th birthday...by screaming & yelling.


I would've been lost without these 2...Liz and Pilar from BBBS!


Alan Stout from BBBS presented my boss OD and I with a few tokens of his appreciation. 

There are SO MANY kids just like the littles we had on this trip waiting for a match with BBBS.  That is why there is such a desperate need for volunteers to join the mentoring program.  Becoming a Big Brother has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.  And I promise it will have the same impact on you!

I can't urge you enough to get involved with this program.  A few short hours a month can have an amazing effect on a young kid's life here in NEPA.

If you'd like more info on how to become a Big Brother or Big Sister CLICK THIS LINK or call 800.955.4376.

Have a GREAT weekend!

-Rock
