The upstate is pretty much home. I wasn't born here, but the family moved to Greenville 40 years ago when Dad took a job in the textile business. Went to J. L. Mann High, then saw my daughter graduate from the same school. I started in the radio business after one semester of college, which I found out was too hard. (College, not this!) I was lucky to get started here at WESC 30 years ago, and haven't found anything else I really wanted to do more. And I like the things we have on WESC ... I do like country music, I do like racing, I just don't like getting up at 3 am.
Thursday morning we get to visit with Talladega winner David Ragan. We’ll talk about Saturday night’s All-Star Race, and about his thrilling, last lap win at ‘Dega. Just to refresh your memory on that…
When Manny Ramirez was at the top of his game with the Boston Red Sox, he was one of the most feared hitters in the game. Anything else he did on the field was an adventure. Many times someone watched him do something odd and say, “That’s just Manny being Manny.” Ramirez is playing ball in Taiwan, but he’s still a highlight reel star! Watch and enjoy the worst…slide…ever!!
The video's a little shaky, so perhaps you should close your eyes while you listen! Outshyne's lead singer Waylon performed the National Anthem before the Southern 500 at Darlington, and did a fine job!
It was a very large silo in Redbank, Austraila. It needed to come down, so they called in demolition experts to implode it. I don’t know if somebody did the math wrong or what, anyway the thing refused to fall. So they got heavy equipment and knocked it the rest of the way down. At the end, notice the guy on the left getting the heck out of the way!
I found a page on facebook called American Monsters. Not like scary monsters, these are four-wheeled, American made monsters, like this incredible costom T-Bird. MASH RIGHT HERE to see a couple more, and the greatest baby stroller ever invented!
There is a grassroots petition drive underway to honor PFC Barrett Austin, a young man from Pickens County who died serving our country in Afghanistan. PFC Austin played football at Pickens High, and the petition asks the School Board to name the Stadium at the New Pickens High School in his honor. Seems like a nice idea to me. If it does to you too, MASH RIGHT HERE and sign up

It’s called “Palmetto Payback.” There is 380 million dollars currently unclaimed in the State of South Carolina, and some of it could be yours. It’s money from businesses, former employers and bank accounts, but they can’t find the owners. Maybe some of it’s yours! It just takes a couple of seconds to search, MASH RIGHT HERE to see if there is free money with your name on it!
I have no ink, but I have no problem with tattoos. Some of them are really quite spectacular. Others, sadly, are spectacular failures. Enjoy the extra 'm' below, then MASH RIGHT HERE to see some other ink disasters
