What a week.
Last Wednesday, Cumulus Media officially announced that my show and I were relocating to New York. My new flagship station is 95.5 PLJ, where my show airs live every weeknight from 7 to 10 pm to millions of people throughout the Tri-State area. “The Ralphie Show” still airs on 97 BHT in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA, 92 PRO-FM in Providence, RI, and Q105 in New London, CT during its normal timeslots.
I’ve already welcomed Steven Tyler and Joe Perry on to the show. Adam Levine and Chris Daughtry join me before week’s end. A big guest is planned for Monday and Carly Rae Jepsen will call me, really, next Wednesday.
After a tumultuous search – yes, I think that is a fitting adjective for Manhattan apartment hunting – I “lucked out” (because that’s the cool thing to say) and found a cozy one bedroom in an amazing neighborhood. I’ve always dreamt of New York – working here, playing here, living here… and now I get my wish. To say I’m looking forward to living out my dreams would be a gross understatement. I’m ecstatic, and I feel blessed that I have this opportunity.
As I’ve mentioned a couple times in the trade publications (which naturally I’ll link to at the end of this article), I’d like to thank the Dickey family and Jan Jeffries for offering me the biggest break of my career. Jan isn’t simply delivering a company line when he says that Cumulus Media likes to recognize talent and promote from within, and I’m glad that I can serve as another example of that.
Again, I’m appreciative for my family, friends, and co-workers throughout the years. I’d like to give a special shout out to every program director that helped me grow as both an air talent and a person.
Trust me, I’m counting my blessings and as far as I’m concerned, we’re just getting started…
It seems the Toxic Twins are back and as strong as ever. The coincidence is that the latest issue to drive them apart – Steven Tyler’s involvement on “American Idol” – may have been what brought them back together.
“I didn’t have anything to give Steven as a present because I’ve already given him everything that I could think of that I know he likes,” Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry told me regarding his cameo on last season of “Idol.” He played guitar on “Happy Birthday” for the 64 year-old Tyler. “That’s the kind of thing you give your brother.”
Tyler confirmed to Perry that he had no idea his fellow “bad boy from Boston” would be showing up on stage that night.
“What do you give a guy that’s got everything?” asked Tyler. “It was quite the moment, man. It was beautiful. It kind of took all the bad vibes and the whole business that was going on at the time and made it be okay.”
Perhaps it also sheds a little more light on how the tumultuous duo was able to link up with their other band mates to release Aerosmith’s first studio LP in eight years on November 6 and extend its current “Global Warming Tour” through the fall.
“This is the first record that I can think of in a long, long time where everybody is really excited about it in the band,” Perry noted. He has no problem referring to Music from Another Dimension as Aerosmith’s best yet. “I’d say we’re our own biggest fans so we’re also our own biggest critics.”
Seems not too much has changed from those crazy days of touring in the 70’s and 80’s… but some things are different.
“There are some substances that aren’t back there that used to be,” said Tyler – in a more matter-of-fact than joking manner – about the scene at the show these days. “It’s just so crazy. Everybody wants the backstage ticket. It’s pretty cool.”
And for the first time, Steven Tyler actually came across understated.
I do it a lot, but eating before bedtime isn’t healthy. I also have a hard time falling asleep some nights. Voila! According to this article, these four foods below 200 calories may just do the trick…
- Caffeine-free tea or sugar-free hot chocolate
- A handful of dry cereal or slice of whole wheat toast
- Graham crackers
- Warm milk
