Anna says "Ask us Anything!"
In which we'd like to take Anna's flub from our Grammy Party and turn it into a legit bit.
Let's celebrate National Pie Day!
Today is "National Pie Day" (no, really) and a local company brought us by some delicious apple pies. And while Anna Zap hoarded hers ("I've got a child at home!" was her cry) Big Jim was nice enough to see if some of his fellow co-workers would also like to enjoy all that's great about "National Pie Day"
Big Jim tries Scarp's Hot Sauce!
Late last week, Big Jim received an email asking if he'd "like to try some new, locally made hot sauce."
Well, considering that Big Jim loves both hot sauce and free stuff, he said "yes!" and today that hot sauce arrived.
How hot was it?
Was it delicious?
Snacktime with Big Jim & Anna
Why did Anna have to switch to the UTZ Pretzels in the (more expensive) container, rather than the regular ol' bag? Find out it today's episode of :60 Behind the Scenes!
More MLK History with Kevin Begley!
Our historically challenged afternoon DJ, Kevin Begley, failed miserably once again during our weekly bit "History Lessons with Kevin Begley" today. Well, we thought we'd give him one more shot, in hopes that some of Dr. Martin Luther King's message hasn't been lost on our pizza loving pal.
Help Big Jim & Anna find an Astrologer!
Way back in the day, when Big Jim was growing up, he remembered his mom listening to an astrologer on the radio named the "'Cosmic Muffin'' - Darrell Martinie. The guy was a legend, and spent three decades dispensing advice on radio stations in Boston and nationwide.
Well.... Big Jim & Anna would like to find their very own "Cosmic Muffin" type of character for their show. Are you a fun, wacky astrologer who'd be great on the air? If not, do you know someone who is?
If so, watch the video, an
Help decipher Anna's dream!
Poor Anna Zap had a terrible night of sleep, thanks to a nightmare that she needs help figuring out.

Every Wednesday, Big Jim & Anna have an after show meeting with program director Keith Dakin to get yelled at and be told what we're doing wrong (turns out, it's usually everything!)
Anyway, today was a "very special" meeting, because it was "ratings day" for the radio station.
How'd we do?
Would Big Jim & Anna lose their jobs?
And WHY is Anna Zap dressed like a Bumble Bee?
The New Trend in Portland
Earlier today, a photo popped up in Big Jim's twitter feed that featured a HORRIFYING photo of an apparent new piercing known as "The Front Porch" and it's like the "hot new thing" in Portland, OR.
Anyway, seeing as the photo is quite jarring to look at, Big Jim decided to take it around the office to get some reactions from fellow co-workers.
Office Golden Globe Speeches
Wether it was the fact that it's not as serious an awards show as The Oscars, or that the booze was flowing in copious amounts, it didn't seem like anyone had any kind of prepared speech during las night's Golden Globe Awards show.
So that said, if some of the Star 99.9 Staff were put on the spot the same way, Big Jim & Anna wanted to find out who'd be the first person that they thanked if THEY won a Golden Globe.
