Do you have this problem?? I wake up some mornings with a wet face because of this! It's crazy, it must be because of sleeping very heavy. When you are worn out you sleep very deeply. I hope I'm not the only one who has done this! Hit me back if you have or I'm gonna think I have issues:)
Just came across a tv show that I didn't think I'd like all that much. Now a week later and into the 2nd season I'm officially HOOKED!! It's HOTEL BABYLON.. It is a pretty interesting show sex, drama, and a little bit of everything else. It's an English show originally aired on the BBC so if you've had your fill of Simon or any of the other peeps now on american TV you may wanna skip it! But if you are in the mode for something fun and not to heavy check it out on Netflix... Let me know what you think..
For some reason in the past few months these songs have come back to life!! Which one are you into?? The WOP is like the HOTTEST song on Chalmette.. Anytime you go to Daq Paradise it's the only song everyone asks for!! Wobble is huge in other circles.. It's top 15 with itunes in New Orleans and getting hotter!!
So I'm asking you what one are you jammin too?? WOBBLE OR WOP!?!? It;s your call:))
A few days ago I think it was 10/11/11 all across the country college radio stations where holding a day celebrating college radio... My question is WHY? Except for a few college stations in the area like KSLU on the north shore who actually have people that thrive on wanting to be in radio and want to make it in this busniess. I really don't know what college radio purposes are in 2011?!?!!? Many college radio stations are focused on being sooo far out in space with the music they play, only the dj playing the song knows who it is (or cares)! Give us a format that isn't currently on the in the city... It maybe jazz, dance, or ALT. rock, but god isn't the purpose of radio is to have people listen?? New Orleans college radio is totally unlisteneable!!! When was the last time you tuned your dial to anything under 92.1??? It's just unreal:(
I don't know why but I was really excited about the TV show PAN AM.. I don't know why but the coming attractions seemed cool?!?! Now that I wasted 60 minutes of my life I'm pissed... Why would a network like ABC waste it's time and money on the non-sense?? I would think after a show like Desparate House Wives something big should follow!! This shouldn't even be on the Lifetime Network (not that I watch it). I'd rather watch the Cartoon Network?!?! Any way stay clear of Sunday Night (the 9pm hour)on ABC soooooo sad:(
It's gonna be sooooo much better to be 2-1 then 1-2! Come on WHOP DAT nation.. If we lose to Houston all of the energy of the season could be lost. We can only have one outcome Sunday we win and we need to win BIG!! Where will you be watching Sunday??? Holla let us know:)
Everybody knew Drew and the Crew had to hit hard and hit often. We had to come out of the gate with a bang!! There is no way the Who Dat Nation could be happy with a 0-2 start on the season! Could you imagin the up rise if that happen??? It would have been hell on earth! Thank god we don't need to worry about that and we should be 2-1 by next week cause really the Texans??!! I know they are 2-0 but for real!!?!? All good just had to get that off my chest:))
Everybody has one and now it's time to get your prize on!! Starting Thursday we will call out Birthdays which means Month and Day... Not Year:)) So if your b-day is Oct 1st. and we call October 1st you win!! Our first time will be at 11:30am on Thursday morning!! Good luck and Happy Birthday:))
Ok by now I hope you know there is a storm in the gulf!! Not a Tropical Storm yet, not even a hurricane. But, it's moving our way and we will get drenched this weekend!! Are you supposed to go out of town this weekend and now your not?? It sucks when you thought you we're going to the beach for a long weekend and now you are stuck inside paying out of your A&& for nothing... So how will you be spening this weekend? Home or Away? Where ever you go make sure you know what's going on and the way to do that is keep it on B97 or tune into our sister station WWL870AM, 105.3, or WWL.COM!! Happy Labor Day Weekend!
First there was Lady Gaga.. We get it she's supposed to dress wild, be out there, get noticed! Then all of a sudden normal Nicki Minaj is dressing like a damn crazy person.. Almost like Lady Gaga di about 2 years ago...WHY???? Then Kate Perry starts dressing like she's in cartoons?!?!?! Just this past Sunday she had a block of cheese on her head for the MTV VMAs. Plus, I just saw a picture of her dressed up in a little drummer boy outfit!! What is going on here?!?!? Then, guess who comes to save the day? Rihanna!! She was dressed like a superstar... in a power outfit!! Looking great.. She doesn't have to have a block of cheese on her head or anything crazy like that! I hope the pop stars get it together and dress the part.. The little ones are watching!
This marsh fire was bad enough yesterday... But, today it really could harm people with breathing issues!! Why can't they wait until the wind is blowing over a NON populated area of the city? Whoever is in charge of this should be fired with no questions!! This is not good and somebody should get to the bottom of this ASAP!!
Is there another edition of the 4th grade dramam breaking out with in the Pop/Hip-Hop world? Lil Wayne, Beyonce, & Jay-Z... All of this over "BABY" money... You would expect this from NEW artists coming up in the industry not 3 well know, HUGE stars... So to that i say grown the ---- up... Really?? Put your hands up and the gunz down.. You know where this is going if somebody doesn't back upa nd be cool..
After a trip back to see my family this past weekend, I noticed it's happening all over the place.. When your flight is at C-15, or A-22 they make you pass everyone of the stores in that terminal...Is it just my imagination or do the airlines do this on purpose?? They want you to walk past every one of their stores and possibly buy something... I don't remember it being this bad before. On Friday Night in Atlanta I had to go from A-49 all the way to T-1 after a 20 minute walk to a terminal I didn't even know they had before, and a tram ride I got there. Oh I didn't buy anything!!! LOLOLOL.. Is it just me or have you have this experience?
WOW this summer has been LARGE in concerts!! From Britney, Katy, now the Script!! It's great to know all of these artists are so happy to hang out with their fans!! Some are SOOOOOOO NOT:) I won't mention names but the band I'm talking about rhymes with Bings Of Feon! As you can tell you haven't heard from them in a while and they may never have another top 40 hit?!?!! It just goes to show you that being nice all the way around is the best way to be.... Plus, if your a rude ass to the audience they will NOT be having it!!!
Let's see if the next wave of stars remember who is #1!! How will Beiber do in a year from now? Will Adele be oepn to meeting her fans? Cause she is NOT been so far!! Things that make you say hummmm that's all I got to say!
When I first hear this song a few weeks ago I thought it was going to be bigger than anyother song Bruno has ever done.. A few weeks later it hasn't caught the fire that I thought it would have.. Question is why? Are you getting alittle tired of Bruno? Is Eminem in the song a factor? Will it be big but is just taking a little longer? So many questions.. Nobody knows but we can talk about it... Drop my your thoughts!!!
Alot of people say.... People do stupid things and are more violent when it's hot out... I say HELL YES they do. The weather right now is INSANE... All over the country but really here in New Orleans it's so damn humid it's nutz!!! Do you work outside are you effected by this everyday??
I really wish sometimes that Rihanna would take a vacation!! How about a year... No Rihanna for 52 weeks, that would be cool.. But then it seems that everytime she puts out a song it's a different kind of song!! Sometimes she is slow, hip hoppy, then dance, and sometimes she blows your mind!! I still think she is a great artist but needs to take sometime off....
What do you think??
All this weekend we are going to giveaway tickets to Blue Bayou Waterpark!! Make sure you get in on this the park is awesome!! Depending on where you live it's a little bit of a drive but well worth it. The park is right off of I10 so it's REALLY easy to get in and out quickly:)) Call and get your tickets!!
It's finally over... The NFL LOCKOUT!! The details are still coming but all the news orgs had the info that the player and owners have agreed to a deal. NOW the question is where will Reggie be, and who else will come and go??? Lot's of stuff will happen this week.
All I can say is HOLY *%#!!!! How hot is that song... If you have no idea what I'm talking about it's the new song from "BAD MEETS EVIL" Eminem & Bruno Mars. Bruno is a monster of music right now and has sooooo many hits and it's just the start for him... WIll he be the next big thing?? YES he already is a BIG thing. CHeck out the song and let me know waht you think:) Remember it's "LIGHTERS" BAD MEETS EVIL.
This weekend you gotta be careful!! Alot of people get stupid and drink and drive or blow there hands off with fireworks.. How many times do you have to hear of things like this happening on the news, or someone you know??? REALLY!! Be cool and be safe.... At B97 we're gonna be safe with tix all WEEKEND long!! It's Red, WIZ, & Blue weekend!! Wiz Khalifa will be in town next week and you'll go!! Be listening for the exact time to call and win tix:) Happy 4th of July!
Ok so last week I blogged about how Katy didn't want to meet her fans... I got word today that she will now do a meet and greet here in New Orleans... I am very happy and can't wait to have this on the air:)) GO KATY!!!
I for one am very pissed about it.... I think Katy is great but I'm not sure why she can't do a meet and greet with her fans in New Orleans!?!?!? I could see if the artists aren't doing them. BUT, LADY GAGA meet her fans in New Orleans. BRITNEY SPEARS is going to meet her fans in New Orleans. Katy Perry will not... At B97 we can only ask that she thinks about her decision and reverse it!! We love what she has done for POP music in the past few years but absolutly don't agree with this!!
Have you heard the new song from Adele?? If you've downloaded the entire album then of course you have and you are probably loving that song more than Rollin in the Deep. It is just an amazing song that grabs you and has got to give you goose bumps!! Adele has been around for years but I guess it took that one song to really break thru and his us the mass!!! Oh btw if you haven't heard it you need to check it out right now:)) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njwvIPJlPN0
Next weekend June 6/23-6/25 B97 will give you FREE TIX TO NEWBEE FEST1 & the shot to Meet Cody Simpson, Hot Chelle Rae, and Porcelian Black before the show. All next weekend that's your only way to meet them:))
Many people are over stressed now adays by doing 2-3 peoples jobs. Are you one of those people who never want to get away? I say GO and GO far:)) Where will you be going this year on vacation? Will you go all out or kinda take a few days for a staycation?? WHAT UP?
It seems like it's happening every week now a days! Movie stars, political people, rock stars, and normal people getting caught with their pants down!! DON'T BE A WEINER!! I'm not joking, I'm being serious New York Sen.(D)Anthony Weiner now could lose his family and everything he's been working for just like that. For what? A quicky via Twitter or Facebook? Is it worth it? I think NOT!!! Don't be stupid and keep your paints up! Remember once you post it.. You can't get it back!!
How amazing is this?? You get a shot at meeting Lady Gaga just for doing a video! Can you do it?? Sure you can it's soooo easy.. Just go to B97.com and go thru the rules very carefully!!! Face to face with Lady Gaga would be incredible!!! Don't miss out:))
I have to say my visit today at the DMV office on the Westbank right near the Harvey Tunnel was amazing. It was 2:30pm and I SWEAR I was in and out of there getting my registration renewed (you know that little sticker thing on your license!!) in less then 10 minutes!! I should write a book about the DMV... The best advise i can give you is that you should go at a weird hour... I want at 2:30pm Lunch is over NOBODY there and the people working were nice!!! MAYBE THE END OF THE WORLD IS NEAR?!?!?! Seriously just a piece of advice go at off hours and best of luck!!
We are kickin off the summer this weeekend.. Offically Memorial Day is the first weeeknd of summer but we have been sweating for a while:)) What will you be doing this weekend?? Cook outs?, Parties?, Pool Parties?. Whatever you are doing make sure you do it safe!! Don't be a knucklehead!!
I thought the world was coming to an end! That was my first reaction when at about 9:25pm New Orleans time NBC broke in to the Celb. Apprentice with a split screen and the tones went DING DING DING(NBC tones sound) It said the the President would address the nation and world in 5 minutes.. WHAT?!?!?!?!!?!? Unless it is earth shattering news NO president is going to address the nation and WORLD at 10:30pm EDT on a Sunday Night!! So at that point I had to switch to CNN and they still didn't know why the president was going to address the nation. They did say it is HUGE and would effect National Security... SO I'm thinking one of two things.. One (not good) an astriod is going to hit earth in the next day or so.... Two (really good) they caught or killed Osama Bin Laden... But for about 10 minutes I was really sweating and heartbeating really fast!! I'm like wow WHAT THE %^**?!?! So in the end we all know what happened and how!! Thank god it wasn't the first possibility:)
How did you hear about it and how did yopu react?
Ok let me be nice about this.. It game 6 for the Hornets tonight and we proved we CAN beat the Lakers!! We CAN'T beat the Lakers if we don't take to ball to the basket.. We can't waste shots and think we are going to beat the Lakers!! No wasted shots!! I'm IN, You're IN, now lets get the BALL IN:)
I just don't understand what all the hype is around all of this mess!! Great I'm happy he's getting married, they make a great couple... All of this is just a ratings ploy. You maybe one of the people who care, but, if you think that tons of people are going to get up at 3am local time to watch this you are seriously NUTZ! William won't even be KING at least for another 20 years.
It's 4:18pm on 4/20/11 and so far nothing massive has happened around the country or locally! Usually on 4/20 there is something horrible that happens. From the: BP blowout last year, Columbine back in 1999, and a few other massive happenings on this date. Fingers crossed and praying nothing will!! Happy 4/20....
For reallll!!! I was blown away by the show this past weekend.. Everything about it was top of the line... Did you see her play that piano??? She beat it's face up!! (In a good way) WOW and this is just the beginning of the GAGAness. Just think 5-10 years from now how big of a MONSTER she will be... Madonna has nothing on Lady Gaga!! Not saying Madonna wasn't talented, but GAGA will beat anybody and day with her eyes closed!! Now for a WHAT THE _*^$ was that moment:)) We didn't know who and what and why that lady was on stage before the shopw actually started.. It turns out she is GAGA's best friend.. Check this link out... http://askville.amazon.com/Lady-Starlight-specialty-onstage/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=43225930
WTH???? So last night during the tv show "THE EVENT" On NBC Cox cable went out.... Not sure if this was EVERYWHERE or just a few different places but it SUCKED!! It was also during the last half of the basketball tourny! Bottom line I had to resort to playing "Angry birds" and going to the gym to pass the time..
Just another thought.... What happens if a huge tornado came thru New Orleans during the storm last night? We never would have know would we?? If you have no cable & internet how do we know anything? Do we have Sirens in the area?? Just sayin... SAVE US SOMEONE:))
We just got the word that *^%(^$@ @$%^&* is coming this summer to New Orleans again!! You are gonna freak when you hear who it is:) If you didn't get to see her last time in New Orleans you def want to get you tickets! Oh, we'll let you know ASAP!!
ALL we can really say about Bruno is that he has come outta NO WHERE in the past year and now is almost a GOD in the pop world!! 2 BIG HUGE #1 songs and his new one is going crazy on the air right now at B97...Check out "THE LAZY SONG"
I had a conversation with a rep from her record company today and they informed me that Lady Gaga will NOT be doing any meet & greets before and after her show. That means to me that Lady gaga doesn't want to meet her fans. I may be wrong but I think that really sucks... I have meet "THE ROLLING STONES" in Vegas they didn't think they we're to big to meet fans.. If ANYBODY could be to big they would be the one's I would so OK, they are huge!
I was hopeing that woulnd't happen...But I guess it's only a matter of time that Lady Gaga thinks she is bigger then her fans... I'll say it again THAT SUCKS!! Lady gaga I'm NO LONGER A FAN!!
Am I the only one who wants to throw up when I hear the slight whisper of Lindsay Lohan.. Today she should be back in jail and I hope she is... She is stupid and should be put away for EVER!! Maybe I'm just mean or maybe she deserves it bit I'm realllllllly sick of hearing her name!
The New LADY GAGA is really growing on me. She has set so many records in the past week! It's been offically a week today and she is the number 1 song in New Orleans according to i-tunes. The song will debut inside the top 7 for the week!! Wow... The power of GAGA is just beginning:)
OK so I get it... There are tons of artists and songs out there that we've never heard of! There are tons of bands and VERY TALENTED people who will never be on B97 and may never be on commercial radio. The awards last night showed that the Grammy's doesn't, and NEVER will be swayed by just what is popular on the radio, sales, and what's happenening right now. I have had countless people call today and ask me who the F*%$K is Esperanza Spalding?? But I do have to say "JUSTIN BIEBER" should have won best new artist.. You may disagree, and even curse at me.. BUT! When it comes to selling records (downloads), creating such a HUUUUUGE BUZZ, and getting people so passionate about music again.. I think the ACADEMY shot themselves in the foot! How many CD's will Justin sell and how many will Esperanza Spalding sell?? Plus the Academy Of Music loves talking smack about RADIO.. Well without RADIO there would be no more ACADEMY!! And really?? does Esperanza have a 3-D movie out??
the National Anthem
The Star-Spangled Banner
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight'
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen, thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream;
'Tis the star-spangled banner: oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Oh, thus be it ever when free men shall stand,
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that has made and preserved us as a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust";
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
SO is the big game really a big game to us in New Orleans:((? NOOO It's back to watching the commercials this year.. I think I'd rather watch that puppy bowl on the animal channel. What are you going to be doing? It just sucks that there is no link to our city this year.. Maybe I'm a sore loser but that's cool:)
One year ago this week this city was INSANE!! It was 2-7-10 that the Saints won the first ever Superbowl for the city of New Orleans.. What a special time (in a good way) it was for everyone in the area. Besides a hurricane in February (not likely) this is the only thing that could EVER put Mardi Gras on the back burner. It felt like nobody even cared about Mardi Gras cause we all had one thing on our mind... WIN!! Just writing this brings goose bumps to my arms and body!! The city went nuts that night and even with another Superbowl win down the line will probably never feel the same way!! For a few days it felt like EVERYBODY in this city was one and there was no crime or issues!! It was great and I'll always rememeber that.... WHO DAT!! CHAMPS IN 2012!!
