Manley in the Morning

I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville).  I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family.  I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won).  When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department.  So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.

 

I'd like to know what you are up too.  Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material).  Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page.  By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

 

 


Manley's History lesson...

 

 

Tuesday August 22, 2017:

 

August 22nd is the 234th day of the year. There are 131 days remaining until the end of the year

 

  • There are 13 days remaining until Labor Day
  • There are 19 days remaining until Grandparents Day

 

Today is:

 

National Be an Angel Day, National Eat a Peach Day, National Pecan Torte Day, National Tooth Fairy Day and Take Your Cat To The Vet Day

 

This Day in History:

 

--In 1787, inventor John Fitch demonstrated his steamboat on the Delaware River. Not only did it power itself along the river, but it also removed wrinkles!

 

--Colonel Harlan Sanders of "Kentucky Fried Chicken" fame was born on this date back in 1890. He was the original reason why the chicken crossed the road.

 

--On this date in 1902, Teddy Roosevelt became the first American president to ride in a car. It was also the first time a vice-president had to get out and help push it.

 

--In 1906, the Victrola was patented... just like the one in our studio. It was the predecessor of the record player, which was the predecessor of the cassette player, which was the predecessor of the CD player which is what we use to listen to before our phones.

 

--On this day in 1928, 79 years ago today, Mickey Mouse's first movie, "Steamboat Willie" made its debut. Critics said it was good, but a little cheesy.

 

--In 1980, the record for coconut tree climbing was set when 17-year-old Fuatai Solo ascended a 29.5-foot tree barefoot in 4.88 seconds. It's a record that no one has cared to break since.

It's "National Be an Angel Day" and quite frankly, this is probably the easiest day for me to celebrate since it's simply what I do everyday.
