Rik Mikals

I’ve been up and down the radio dial as the infamous “WKRP” theme song sings. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston,Washington at KCLK/FM (a country station) and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I was at KMPS-FM in Seattle in the 90′s and moved to Yakima in 1998 as Program Director of 107.3 KFFM-FM. I moved again and again until I was in Bakersfield California at KBKO taking on the legendary Buck Owens as crosstown rivals. I then moved Tri-Cities Washington to be closer to my son and finally have come full circle back to Yakima as the Operations Manager for Townsquare Media.

I bought a farm with my wife Megan in Prosser Wa and have 3 great dogs named Phoebe, Barkley and Roxy who are spoiled. My son is now an aspiring musician and plays and performs and writes original music in his band No Hope. I’m also known for having a never ending knowledge of pop culture and stupid facts and I’m a huge comic book fan having a comic collection easily totally over 5,000 comics.

http://youtu.be/uNLdia5Mt10

I was adopted in my teens, and for the past few years I've been thinking about going back to my birth name.

But my son isn't convinced. He doesn't want to change his last name.

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.

David Letterman’s First Radio Audition Tape Exposed (AUDIO)

I couldn't believe the Shane Company has been in business as long as it has when I listened to the first David Letterman radio audition tape. Dave had to get his start somewhere, and radio was his first stop on the long road to a successful broadcasting career.

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.

Free Coffee With a Random Act of Bullness [VIDEO]

Cefus and Michele headed out this morning for another Random Act Of Bullness, surprising listeners with free coffee at 40th Ave. Espresso. Listeners had to know the code word "Michele Is The Best" to get a free cup of java ... which seems a little suspicious to me.

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.

Yakima Crossfit Isn’t At All What You Might Think

Not that I NEED it or anything, but the other day I wandered down to Yakima Crossfit, 730 N. 16th Ave., and took a look around.

I'd always figured it was a place where the extremely fit worked out -- you know: Muscle-heads who spoke in grunts and washed down their energy bars with power drinks

Puppy Wakes Up And Sings Along To ‘Let It Go’ From Frozen Movie [VIDEO]

The song "Let It Go" from the Disney movie "Frozen" is on repeat in my house these days, and apparently it's an even bigger hit with dogs. I'm not sure if Idina Menzel's high pitch is the cause for the puppy reaction or a genuine love for the song.
