Madison East Poms 2014

Madison East Poms 2014

Max Ink Radio: Happy 3rd Birthday to MIR! And give it up for Jimmy K too! He has worked with our team of DJs to reformat Max Ink Radio. The new format still allows for our anchor shows like the Jimmy K Show, Burn Baby Burn with Jake Boyardi, The Record Store, and BS Live Rocks in the evenings and weekends, but Monday through Friday from 6am-7pm central time will have consistent DJ’s in two hour slots, slightly themed. Go Maxinkradio.com!

Adventures with Lizzie & Nikko: Lizzie finished the first-ever Madison East pom-pom season with a series of performances showcasing the squad’s routines from the year. The best one (I only say best because that’s the one I attended) was in the school’s theater. Nikko came along with me (he was on early release that day) to video capture the event for grandpa & grandma in Florida. We sat in the silent theater waiting when the bell rang. Suddenly, the theater was filled with the din of a few hundred high school students, Nikko and I in the middle, front row. The lights dimmed, the curtains opened and we were rocked in our seats. Congrats to Lizzie, the team, and Ms. Frankenberg for your successful season!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful wife Allison Rocker! Give her a shout on Facebook!
