"Cro" has the distinction of being at KFI longer than anybody else with the exception of the legendary Mike Nolan... not sure if that should be a point of pride, but there you go. Michael started as a board operator for tons of shows, including the L.A. Raiders(yes, they were on KFI), Marilyn Kagan and Phil Hendrie, where he ended up writing for many of Phil's "guests". Michael also performed and co-wrote many of the skits and parody songs played during the Bill Handel Morning Show. He was eventually thrown into the newsroom as an anchor, where he works the much envied weekend shift. His versatility (lack of social life) allows him to fill virtually any time slot on the station. That's why you might hear him any time of the day or night... or weekend... or overnight... or Christmas Day... or New Years Eve. You get the picture.

My daughter Sydney figure skates. It's taken a long time and a lot of different activities to find something she really has stuck to. Skating has, so far, been that thing. I initially put her on ice so she could work on her balance because she was fearless playing soccer but was also often on the ground. Turns out she really gravitated to the ice and it's great to see how, after a couple of years, she is just starting to go show the grace in her movements that come from repitition and practice. Props to her mom for also taking her so often and supporting her. This is from her holiday program. Since she wasn't competing, she just got to have fun with it. She usually asks me to come up with some song selections and I always loved this song, especially this Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's version. It fills me with HUGE joy and pride to see my kid enjoy and excell at something I know I couldn't do. Enjoy!
