Rik Mikals

I’ve been up and down the radio dial as the famous "WKRP" line goes. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Wash., at KCLK – a country station -- and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I was on KMPS in Seattle in the 1990s and moved to Yakima in 1998 as program director of KFFM. I moved again and again until I was in Bakersfield, Calif,, and then Tri-Cities, and then back to Yakima, and again to Tri-Cities and more! I bought a farm in Prosser a few years back with my wife Megan, and we have three great dogs named Phoebe, Barkley and Roxy. My son is an aspiring musician and plays, performs and writes original music. I also have a stepson named Kyran. I’m known for having a never-ending knowledge of pop culture and easily get addicted to TV reality shows. I love "Star Trek," Mustangs (the car) and '80s music. I’m a huge comic book fan, having a comic collection easily totaling more than 6,000 comics.

But Kayak daredevil Tyler Bradt has a different view -- he wants to break the world record of kayaking off the massive waterfall.

Can he do it?

Did Your Name Make It On A Coca-Cola Bottle This Summer?

I know the name "Rick" has made it on a Coca-Cola bottle before but I'm not so sure we'll ever see a "Rik" on a bottle. I'm totally bummed about that.

It's almost summer and Coca-Cola has started putting names on the side of Coca-Cola bottles again.

I know I didn't make it on a bottle but did you? I've got an easy way for you to check.

Insane Inflatables 5 K Brings The Fun For Families [VIDEO]

It was a beautiful day for Insane Inflatables at the Benton County Fairgrounds In Kennewick, Washington. I grabbed some snap shots and some video and even had a chance to go the top of the start and announce a wave and ended up getting knocked over.

At the top of the inflatable, it was like being on a waterbed (if you remember those) to keep my balance was tough but fun.

Roots and Vines Festival Returns To Downtown Yakima [VIDEOS]

The weather looks great for this weekend and if you are looking for a musical escape, why not attend the Roots and Vines Festival this afternoon?

You'll expand your musical tastes with several well known Pacific Northwest based  musicians and Brothers Comatose based out of San Francisco. I'd suggest checking out Sleepy Man which looks like a boy band for banjos. They are amazing in concert.
