Why so tired…..

By | Leah Holiove, News

I was sitting here at my desk after hosting my on air show and I was thinking to myself, why am I so tired lately? It could be because I have been a vegetarian for around 7 months and I know that can cause fatigue since I don’t consume as much protein as I should, however I have been trying to find my right levels to make it work.  Earlier I was chatting with another host at our station Neil Morrison, and we were talking about our cats and how they like to sleep. He has a cat named Deedee and I have two cats, Patches (AKA) Boo boo and Bella.

Neil and I were discussing how cats like to take up most of the bed when they like to sleep, it’s a cats attitude for sure and any cat owner will most likely agree.  My Bella loves to sleep right at the foot of my bed right were my feet should be so I have to sleep diagonal and Boo Boo loves to sleep right above my head or right beside me. The more we discussed this the more I realize this could be my cause for being tired since I don’t dare move my cats during the night! They would be appalled, so I just make do and sleep all twisted up!

So the more I think about it the more they are the culprits!  I will definitely monitor the situation but it’s not like my cats will allow me to sleep any other way!  I digress.

My Flashback 90’s song today came out in 1991 by Dutch group 2 Unlimited. “Get Ready for This” is still the most frequently played songs at sporting events around the world. It  has been the opening song at one time for two different NBA teams, the Orlando Magic and the San Antonio Spurs.

My Flashback 90’s song today came out in 1996 by New Zealand musical group OMC. “How Bizarre” topped the singles charts in New Zealand, Australia, Austria, Canada and Ireland.

Interestingly the lead singer Paul Fuemana was a gang member in Auckland, New Zealand before achieving major success with this song. Sadly he died after suffering from an illness for several months on January 31, 2010 at only 40 years old.

Flashback 90’s

By | Leah Holiove, News

My Flashback 90’s song today was actually a ballad that became a hit for two different acts in 1993. Initially, it was a #1 single on the U.S. Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for American country music artist John Michael Montgomery. A few months later, American pop group All-4-1 covered “I Swear” as well and achieved great success in many countries.

The All-4-1 version won a Grammy in 1995 for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. You can hear “I Swear” in TV shows like South Park & The Vampire Diaries as well as movies like Just Friends, The Social Network & Despicable Me 2.

Today’s Flashback 90’s song was Crystal Waters debut album from back in 1991. “Gypsy Woman” was famous for its “la da dee, la dee da” refrain and its  keyboard riff. Alicia Keys actually used big portions of the song and renamed the track “Brand New Me (Part 2)” and released the song in January 2013.

Flashback 90’s

By | Leah Holiove, News

My Flashback 90’s song today was “Praise You” by  Fatboy Slim which came out in 1999. The song features a guitar sample from the opening of “It’s a Small World” from the Disneyland Records-released album Mickey Mouse Disco. The music video won three major awards at the 1999 MTV VMA’s: Breakthrough Video, Best Direction and Best Choreography.  You can also hear it in the 1999 movie Cruel Intentions.

Interestingly enough, Al Gore actually used “Praise You” while campaigning for president in 2000. Slim’s response: “Thank God it wasn’t the Republicans. I would have had to sue.”
