Today is my brother, Erik’s, birthday! He is 24. We celebrated by mixing “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” on our upcoming Christmas album Jazzy Christmas To You II! (Check out Jazzy Christmas To You! on iTunes.) We also voice tracked “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night” yesterday!
Okay, so maybe that wasn’t actually part of the festivities…but we did have a fun breakfast of German Pancakes (an oven soufflé dish, click here for a recipe that’s similar to ours), presents (of course), Dairy Queen® ice cream cake (a Chaston tradition), birthday signs all over the house recounting his accomplishments and activities during the previous year, game playing, and movie watching. All in all, a pretty sweet birthday! (We had Happy Joe’s® Taco Pizza yesterday to kick off the day’s celebration!)
A highlight birthday present for Erik was an orange label LP first edition release of Chicago’s first album when they called themselves Chicago Transit Authority–a title that the CTA required them to discontinue using, hence the band name simply being Chicago!
I only have two days left of my internship at Y105. I am really going to miss being on-air with Chris Farber on the Y105 Wake-Up! I have absolutely loved interning with Cumulus® again (I interned last summer, too)!
After doing the “Olympic Moment” during the Olympics on the morning show, I started doing a “Back-to-School Tidbit.” I love researching for the spot! Tomorrow, I’m going to talk about safety tips for college students and their parents. Tune in at 9:50 a.m. CST on Y105.
