Please say Hello! - 04/22/14

One of the great things about living and working in Nashville is getting to meet so many musical heroes!  They come from all genres of music to live and work here.  To my fortune, my job brings me in contact with many people I have listened to on the radio.  I've marveled at the chance to actually speak with some of the folks I sing along with in my car.  This week, Tiffany was in our studios to talk about a fund raiser for the "Go Red" campaign.  Yes, that Tiffany from 1987's "I think we're alone now" fame!  She became a teenage icon.  She is as nice as you would hope she would be.  She and her husband live in middle TN and she has been on our morning news before.  I'm proud to say she also watches Fox 17 This Morning too!  As we were talking in the hallway, she asked if I enjoyed it when people come up to me and talk to me as if they know me because they watch me on TV.  I told her YES!  Absolutely!  And it's true.  It makes me feel as if I have thousands of friends.  So please, if you happen to see me somewhere around middle TN or southern KY, say hello!  I guarantee, just by saying "hello", you will make me smile!  I really enjoy meeting new "friends"and I look forward to spending some time getting to know you too!
