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.

But I just checked out a new upcoming country music tribute album to Motley Crüe. Yes ... Motley Crüe. Justin Moore's version of "Home Sweet Home" is coming and looks to be a big song on the album.

Lyrics That You Didn’t Realize That You Messed Up On [VIDEO]

Michele and I were talking on the morning show about lyrics that we've messed up on.

For instance, I thought for years that England Dan and John Ford Coley's song said "I'm not talking about millennium," only to discover 20 years later that they were really saying "I'm not talking about moving in" -- I even have the video to prove it. It started this whole conversation about lyrics that you didn't realize you'd misunderstood. Take a look at some other famous lyrically challenged songs.
