I'd like to take a moment to say a big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who attended the 2013 Smokeout Chokeout at the SpeakEasy Sports and Spirits last weekend!

I had so much fun seeing old friends, meeting new ones and getting to spend time talking and listening to tremendously cool KATS listeners like you!

I have to also give a shout to the following:

*Jason, Brad and Siri Stiles and the staff of the SpeakEasy for putting on another epic weekend,

*Merle Travis and the boys from Cold Hard Cash for letting me bend their ear and buy 'em a beer,

*Pete Hernandez and Nigel Goodwin from Crush for playing me a Black Crowes song during their set,

*Kelly West for letting go of the microphone for two seconds to let me help bring Saliva on stage,

*The guys from Powerhouse for hanging out with me at the radio station booth and being generally cool,

*Sunshine Talbot
from Sunshine Photography for capturing some great pics,

*The ladies from Moulin Brew Espresso for letting my wife and I get a pic with them and last, but not least...

*Brad 'SloAss' Barnes
from the Combat Veterans Bike Club for making sure my lovely bride made it back to the car safe and sound Friday night!

Let's do it again next year!
