Todd was born up north, but both moved to Florida at a young age so he's technically a "cracker." Speaking of crackers - does anyone remember "Sociables?" Those were some seriously good crackers. Can you still buy those?
Anyway, after studying very hard in high school and college, Todd decided to untertake the lucrative career of being a full time radio personality, and part-time underwear model. Todd's been at it ever since and has spent the last nineteen years of his career right here at KIX Country 92.9.
Todd has become as much a southwest Florida tradition as blue-tarped roofs and red-tide. Wait a minute, there's got to be a better way to put that. Well, let's just say a lot of people wake up with Todd each day and have come to depend on our easy-going yet fast paced, fun morning program.
What does the future hold for this veteran of the local airwaves? We can't reveal all the secrets quite yet, but rumor has it Todd is putting his doctorate in Organic Chemistry to good use and is working on inventing a cheap substitute for air, and will follow his interest in potato figure sculpting and pesticide-free lawn and garden maintenance. Okay, none of that is true. After all, this is Todd we're talking about!

Here's more on that Tim Tebow controversy. Tim
and his lawyers say a tee-shirt website is using his name and likeness to help sell
religious/NY Jets themed shirts. The website owners say they won't back down. Who should blink here? Take a look at this from the actual website:
Sales info on the shirts:
We're not generally fond of broadcasting our faith, or mixing sports and religion...but we're also not the kind of guys who would ever tell others how to worship/root/live, and if Tebowmania is any indication, there are millions who like to mix their Sunday pleasure and piety.
This Fall, Tim Tebow will be in the uniform of the New York Jets, potentially taking the Tebowing phenomenon to a whole new level.
Now that the NFL's most popular player has moved his pulpit from Denver to New York City, he'll no longer simply be delivering sermons from the mountains -- he'll have the attention of the world's premiere media market. Jets for Jesus! Whether his message -- or his playing skills -- will thrive under the bright lights of Gotham remains to be seen...but we know that a legion of believers will have faith in him. He's not just looking to cure lepers, but heal Gang Green!
This fun design is not officially endorsed by New York's backup quarterback or the Son of God, but plays off the themes of Tebow's faith and his new team - borrowing from the J-E-T-S to promote J-E-S-U-S, with a fish for a football, and "MY" replacing "NY"
The shirt itself:
Here's that new contraption I've been talking about from Honda. It's a one-wheeled wheel chair - not for handicapped people, but for LAZY people!

The Boca Grande Area Chamber Of Commerce’s Tarpon Tournament is this weekend, and I want to salute them a little.

The song is also this year’s “Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation’s Song Of The Year” and isn’t available on Youtube, but can be purchased on Itunes.
