Listen to Annie during your workday from 10AM to 3PM.

 
In 7th grade I wrote an autobiography for an assignment where I declared to the world that I wanted to be a Radio DJ. I’m sure my family wasn’t worried at first, seeing as my career choices before that included airplane mechanic, kindergarten teacher, and a firefighter. I’m sure they assumed this radio phase would pass and their daughter would get a real job as many have put it through the years. Well it hasn’t!  And I couldn’t be happier... unless I had a Taco Bell in my basement, that would be the ultimate situation.
 
Find me on FB, Twitter, email, phone... Nextel Two-way, smoke signals... you get the point!  And thanks for listening to Mix 106.3!

Some Confusion About HOW Tow Trucks Work

Aug 31, 2015 -- 12:10pm

If nothing else, this guy is determined... I'll give him that. However, he DOESN'T seem to have any clue how a tow truck works. Thankfully, that makes for amusing video!

Somehow he got the keys back, climbed up into his truck, and is trying to drive it off the hook.

Really - before he did that, what's the worst case scenario? Pay a few hundred dollars to get your car out of impound? You're an adult, figure it out. NOW who knows what kind of trouble he got himself into.

My main question... where was the tow truck driver during all of this? Hopefully just kicking back, eating a sandwich, watching this idiot from inside a restaurant. Good times, either way!

Michigan: Certainly Not The MOST Embarrassing State

Aug 28, 2015 -- 8:32am

Google. An endless source of information, harvested from everybody as we go about our daily lives. We Google anything that comes to mind, without giving it a second thought, which is what makes this list of Top Most Embarrassing Google Searches by state, so FANTASTIC!

So how'd WE do? The most embarrassing thing that us Michiganders serach is "pyramid scheme" (likely because we have a few companies that more than resemble a pyramid HQ-ed in this state). So really, not much to be ashamed of. We're searching for information.

HOWEVER other states did NOT fare so well, including our longtime rival, Ohio. Their top embarrassing search was found to be "bath salts", assuming the ones that when you ingest them, you eat people's faces off, not the Bath & Body Works kind. (I could be wrong. LOL Who knows?)

In no particular order, other weird ones:

Wisconsin: "Outhouse" [image search] (shopping for new bathrooms??)
Illinois: "Arbys"  (a delicious search result)
Louisiana - "Dog clothes" (rather dull, really)
North Carolina - "Where is the Internet"
Alabama - "Casserole recipes" (predictable, not embarrassing)
Missouri - "Vajazzaling" (don't search this at work, if you're not familiar with the term!)
West Virgina - "Chastity belt" ?!!? WINNER West Virginia wins the embarrassing search game!

To see the map for yourself, click here. The Internet definitely reveals our weirdness. Thankfully we in the Mitten State are fairly unscathed on this one! Follow on Twitter @AnnieOnAir or @Mix1063.

Magician Transforms His Assistant Into A Fiance

Aug 28, 2015 -- 6:17am

Few things spread the Warm Fuzzies like a well-planned, thoughtful, and sweet marriage proposal. A magician pulls this off beautifully by working his proposal into a magic trick. He starts eating letters and spaghetti, then grabs his girlfriend to volunteer, and THEN...

So cute, watching her face as she realizes what's about to happen! Public proposals are pretty risky, especially if it's going to be a surprise, so I LOVE when it goes so well. Was your proposal a big, public stunt or an intimate, simple event? Share your stories on Twitter @AnnieOnAir and @Mix1063

Can This Really Be His Voice?

Aug 26, 2015 -- 8:17am

If you close your eyes and just listen to this cover of Adele's Someone Like You, you'll hear a beautiful voice, belting out the song as good, or even better than Adele!

When you opened your eyes, chances are you'd be surprised. The artsit's name is Tom Bleasby and he is working his way into Internet fame with his covers. Check out his stunning voice:

Who did it better: Tom or Adele? This guy has major talent! I'm sure we'll be seeing MUCH more from him.

They Did It Again... On The Beach!

Aug 26, 2015 -- 6:35am

These ladies are so clever! The SketchShe group of ladies from Australia did a wonderful job earlier this year with the Mime Through Time video where they're in a car, dancing to a whole progression of music from the 50s to current, all while rocking lots of costumes, (looking gorgeous), and having a ton of fun!

This time - a similar theme - but they're in a sandcastle car or as they say a SandCARstle. Highlights include Baywatch (with intentionally, comically fake-looking boobs), the early 00's era with the Thong Song, and even a touch of Katy Perry. See it here:

Which are your favorite pieces of the video? Head to Twitter @AnnieOnAir or @Mix1063 to share

Gas Blocking Underpants

Aug 25, 2015 -- 10:14am

If you find yourself very gassy (or you know someone who fits this description) these new pants are a MUST HAVE. They're called Shreddies and while the name doesn't give us too much information, all you need to know is that they are flatulence-absorbing pants!

Yes. It's EXACTLY what you think. These pants allow your gassy self to fart and the company claims the smell will be trapped by the fabric of the pants. It's brilliant (assuming it works). Downside? So far, this invention does NOT block sound. So you're on your own there.

Other downside, currently the PJ style of Shreddies cost about $115, the jeans cost $150. Expensive. But if they work, I know a FEW people who I'll be giving these to for Christmas. Better start saving now! See the genius for yourself at MyShreddies.com.
