Your Hometown Country Connection


Night time is the right time!
I've been a night person all my life and this is the first time anyone's appreciated it! I was born in Philadelphia and lived many years in the Baltimore area. I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to do it for a living. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I'm a writer, musician and cartoonist in my free time. And I'm a huge fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers as well as the Maryland Terrapins.

Behold the Humble Burger

There are few things I like more than a burger off the grill. Don't get me wrong, I think most burgers are pretty good. But there's something about a burger right off the grill, topped with a slice of pepper jack and some A-1 sauce, that I just can't get enough of. Don't leave me alone with the grill is what I'm saying, because then you'll have to knock me out and take the spatula away.

When I was a kid, my dad made the best burgers. He'd start out with a lump of ground beef about the size of your fist. He'd put it between the bottoms of two plates and then take it out and form it. The end result would inevitably be the perfect shaped burger, thin enough to cook quickly and evenly and big enough around that when it cooked up and shrank a little it fit perfectly into the bun. I tried for years to master the technique but never quite managed. I'd always end up with something that kind of looked like a broken cookie.
Now I skip a step and just get the pre-formed burgers from the supermarket. Lazy? Sure, I'll admit it. But the end result is worth it. The only problem is I don't have a grill. I have to go to someone else's house and use theirs. Gotta work on thatr...
