  • Hola from Mexico!

    Posted by Dan Stone

    What can I say.... this vacation has been our best Great Escape yet with Fox World Travel.  The Royal Playa del Carmen is in the perfect location here in Riviera Maya, Mexico.  We have it all... the beach, the convenient access to Fifth Avenue and shopping, pools, excellent service, food that is out of this world and of course amazing traveling companions.

    The week has been jam packed with country music so far.  Jana Kramer and Thompson Square had an autograph session with our listeners on Monday and then put on a heck of show.  Even after Jana had an accident hitting her head (she is ok), she was a still a trooper.  And Thompson Square... we can't say enough good things about this couple.  They are kind, great performers, and hey, maybe they'll even come back to Mexico again with us sometime!  It's been that fun.

    Yesterday, Jerrod Niemann and Edens Edge held their autograph sessions and private concerts for us. AGAIN, another great show. The entertainment has been great and they had the crowd standing late into the night.  This made it a little difficult for all of us to get up this morning for the broadcasts, but we made it!

    Jana had to go home, but everyone else hung out by the pool yesterday with our great escapers in the sun.

    We've been broadcasting from the lobby overlooking the ocean.  The breeze and sunrise are refreshing at time when we know it's cold back home. 

    On today's agenda:  The staff here at The Royal have set up a great area for our beach party.  Vicky from Fox World Travel is planning beach party games and then Edens Edge will be putting on another great show for us.  We can't wait for another day in paradise.

    Keep listening every morning for your tropical word of the day and check out our Great Escape photo gallery to check out photos from this week. Many more to come.

  • 7 year old handcuffed, interrogated for 10 hours...over $5 bill!

    A 7-year-old boy from the Bronx was pulled out of class, handcuffed and questioned for 10 hours by police over a missing $5 bill.

    The money had fallen on the ground in front of him and two other boys and it disappeared. Someone accused the 7-year-old, and he was handcuffed and held in a room at the school for four hours.

    Cops eventually took him to the station for another six hours of interrogation and verbal abuse.

    The kid’s mom hired a lawyer and has filed a $250 million lawsuit against the city and the NYPD.

    One of the other boys who were there when the money fell ended up confessing to taking it.

  • Dad forces daughter to wear embarrassing t-shirt..with his picture on it

    One dad did everything he could to humiliate his daughter after she broke her curfew.

    In an image posted on Reddit, the dad is seen smiling as he points at his daughter, who is wearing a T-shirt he had especially printed as punishment.

    The shirt has an image of him with the words 'Try me!!' underneath it.

    Dad forced her to wear the shirt for a week.

     

    ** By the way, the girl had to go to the laundromat each day to wash the shirt so it was fresh for the following day at school.

    What do you think, over the line? ~ Dan

    MANTI TE'O: YES, I LIED... BRIEFLY

     

    Manti Te'o admitted to Katie Couric that yes, he did lie about his phony girlfriend Lennay Kekua… but only after he found out that she didn't really exist.

    In the taped interview that airs today, Manti said: “This girl, who I committed myself to, died on Sept. 12. Now I get a phone call on Dec. 6, saying that she's alive and then I'm going to be put on national TV two days later. And to ask me about the same question. You know, what would you do?"

    I don't know if I get this whole thing, but for some reason it seems to be a big deal? ~ Dan

  • Another eye opening trip to St. Jude

    Posted by Dan Stone

     

     

    I went to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis this weekend. It was not my first time, I have toured the hospital for 7 years in a row now. Every time I walk through those doors I still get the feeling of HOPE for these children battling cancer. The families never get a bill from St. Jude and the research being done at St. Jude is shared freely with children's hospitals here in Wisconsin and around the world.

    As families shared their St. Jude moments with us there were tears. Yet there is this feeling of joy as we heard from young people that had been patients at St. Jude and are now healthy and continuing their education in hope of someday working at St. Jude to continue the dream that Danny Thomas had over 50 years ago, that no child should die in the dawn of life.

    We hope you will join us with your support and become a Partner In Hope during our Country Cares Radiothon February 14th & 15th.

    Please enjoy this video the kids of St. Jude put together for you.  God bless ~ Dan
