Rik Mikals

I've been up and down the radio dial -- as the infamous "WKRP" theme song says. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston Wash., at KCLK -- a country station -- and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I was on KMPS in Seattle in the '90s and moved to Yakima in '98 as Program Director of KFFM. I moved again and again until I was in Bakersfield Calif., and then Tri-Cities. Finally I have come full circle back to Yakima as the Operations Manager for KFFM. I bought a farm in Prosser and have two great dogs named Phoebe and Barkley. My son is an aspiring musician who plays, performs and writes original music in his band, No Hope. I'm known for having a never-ending knowledge of pop culture, and I'm a huge comic book fan -- I have a collection easily totaling more than 5,000 comics.

Rock Icon Releases New Country Song Video (VIDEO)

Steven Tyler is already famous for fronting Aerosmith for several decades, but sometimes the line between rock and country can get musically murky when artists like Tyler embrace a new genre. I don't think it's too much of a stretch these days -- rock guitars have replaced steel guitars on recent country hits from artists like Eric Church and Jason Aldean. Tyler, who has a new song and a new video, is just the latest to bridge the two styles.

The Greatest Lesson My Father Ever Taught Me

I wasn't one of the lucky ones who had a father around all the time when I was growing up.

I grew up in foster homes, finally having the good fortune to land in the home of a couple who I came to love as much as any biological parents.

My real father was the black sheep of the family. I saw him every seven years or so, when he'd stop by and drop off another new bike. But after my grandfather passed away, he taught me a lesson that has stuck with me for years.

Willie and Merle Release ‘It’s All Going to Pot’ on 4/20 (VIDEO)

It seems fitting that two of the biggest outlaws in country music decided to release a song called "It's All Going to Pot" on 4/20. Willie, at the tender age of 81, still has the vocal chops to make this song a fun romp. Merle's distinct vocals also bellow through, proving there's still quite a bit of steam left in those lungs.

Miraculously, Car And Driver Escape Black-Ice Semi Slide (VIDEO)

I noticed over the weekend that Eastern Oregon roads were closed due to a massive wreck. Black Ice is one of the scariest things to experience as you never know when or where you'll encounter it. This video is a great example of how easy it is to hit black ice. Luckily, no one was hurt in this accident.

Paul Rudd Shrinks For New Role As Marvel’s Ant Man (VIDEO)

Marvel Comics is on a roll after Guardians Of The Galaxy, a lesser-known Marvel Comic property featuring a talking raccoon and walking tree that has managed to make close to a billion dollars at the box office. Marvel steps up to the plate again with Ant Man, a 1960's Original Avenger and early Silver Age Marvel hero that never managed to have his own comic book series. The new tease trailer is out and we finally get to see how realistic a shrinking man riding on the back of a bee and fighting crime is.
