John Riggs

I've been in radio since 2001 and moved around a few times before landing where I am now. I'm married with three children. I'm an autism acceptance advocate. I love to cook, just don't like doing the dishes afterward. I have a knack for all things nostalgic from the '80s and '90s, love breakfast cereal a little too much and am a huge fan of video games, especially retro games from Atari to Nintendo and beyond.

Experiencing Terror on the Ave in 3D

Wednesday we got a special behind-the-scenes tour of Terror on the Ave. From what I saw, this is bound the be the greatest haunted attraction I've ever been to in any town I've been in. Not only are there different areas, each with their own theme, but it's longer than last year and will be in 3D.

Good news! If you haven't seen "Cement Suitcase" yet, you can watch it now on Hulu!

6.0 Earthquake Rattles Northern California

Did You Know? Washington State Has About 1,000 Earthquakes Every Year

The weekend earthquake in California got me thinking about what we would do if there were an earthquake in Yakima. We're no strangers to earthquakes, but we rarely get anyhing we can actually feel. If you look at the geology underneath us, though, it shouldn't be a big surprise that Washington state has its fair share of earthquakes.

Kids Reacting to the Original Game Boy [VIDEO]

The Game Boy by Nintendo was one of the first handheld systems I owned. For me, it was technology ahead of its time. Never mind it was in black and white (or shades of green), I could play video games so long as I had batteries. I wasn't allowed to bring my Nintendo on family vacations, but this was portable enough that I could.

It breaks my heart that kids today don't realize how much technology has advanced and that something like this didn't really exist before.
