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.

George Thomas Thornton, an Oregon highway engineer whose 1970 decision to use a half-ton of dynamite to blast away a beached dead whale has died. In November 1970, he got the call to remove a 45-foot-long sperm whale that washed up near teh town of Florence. He decided to use dynamite to disintegrate the animal. Never having tried it before, George wasn’t sure how much dynamite to use. Turns out he used WAY too much! The blast rained down pieces of whale that covered spectators and flattened the roof of a car. A Portland TV station filmed the explosion, and it is spectacular! Enjoy their original report here

"When I see pumpkins, something just kinda wells up inside of me Something must have happened in my childhood. Don't know what it was, maybe my mother dropped a pumpkin on my head, or dropped me on a pumpkin, I don't know what it was, but when I see them, something just comes over me." Enjoy the carnage!
