  • Mike Marvin doesn’t just like oldies music. He knows everything there is to know about it.

    A disc jockey for WAKY 103.5, he’s earned the nickname “Mr. Oldies.”

    He spins oldies in the evening time slot at WAKY and also is the go-to guy for any question about rock ‘n’ roll history.

    Station general manager Rene Bell never has worked with anyone with a “vast warehouse of knowledge” like Marvin’s, she said.

  • The 2012 Summer Olympics are in session, and the pressures have begun. This competition brings out the best and worst of world class athletes.

    You might remember one of the devastating images of the 2008 Games. The event was the women’s 100-meter hurdles. U.S. hurdler Lolo Jones had a commanding lead but clipped the ninth hurdle, stumbled, fell on the track and finished seventh. It was a devastating turn of events. Her Olympic dreams came crashing down. Later, Jones would say she was thinking too much about technique as the race drew to a close.

  • For the life of transition that Claire Seifert has lived, music has been a common thread running through every new place she’s called home.

    The heat is back with us. If working out, do be careful you don’t get overheated. Be sure to drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks. We had an appointment in Elizabethtown Monday afternoon, and the heat was practically unbearable going to and from the car, to where we needed to go. At one of the grocery stores, there were some men on a platform working on the sunny side of this brick building. I hardly can understand how they stood it. I know we sort of get adjusted to things, but that seems beyond adjusting to.
