This is seriously one of the hardest things to do is write about ones-self. I mean no one knows me better then me right? So why is it so dang hard !


Over 25 years in this crazy business and  what have I learned? That no matter how I age I'm still that  Redwood Falls small town shy  girl that will always prefer to talk to you from a box then awkwardly in person.  That our( My)  listeners are not your typical radio  fanatics. Doctors, Moms, truck drivers, etc.  We have them all and I have been asked it all  over those years.I mean everything from marriage proposals ,asking to "swing" for the other team,  my face on ice cream containers  to "hey you wanna make a movie?" wink wink!  I'm a very  private person with a  public life. How does that work when our listeners come all the way from Italy to meet ?  My 4 "babies" are my pride and joy.  I would rather be sitting court side somewhere cheering them on then any other place. 7 mile beach Negril,  Jamaica is a close second.I No more topless sun bathing out of the country as I found that my listeners are everywhere . WTF on a small island in  Mexico!??
 Being married to Jim and his pagers as been an interesting journey! He has found that the  bubble I'm encased in is quite resilient.Thank  goodness so is he. 

Rock Rise and Shine morning show 6:30-9 and the Melanie Eckhart  midday show 9-1 Mon-Fri . I must have "arrived" in some capacity if I have my own named show right? !   Kisses Loon fans ! (through the bubble)
