ESPN College GameDay in Fargo… and The Headgear Pick (video)

Tuscaloosa, Baton Rouge, South Bend, Ann Arbor… these are some of the cities that come to mind when you think of the near-iconic Saturday morning college football preview show on ESPN, College GameDay. On September 21, 2013, the “circus” (as host Chris Fowler called it on my radio program) came to Fargo, North Dakota. Fargo, […]

Counterterrorism Expert Dr. Jarret Brachman (audio)

Recently I was following several stories that centered upon al Qaeda. In each case, I saw references to someone named Dr. Jarret Brachman. I made a few phone calls about this Dr. Brachman, asking some questions about him to acquaintances who are dialed into the areas of Homeland Security and counterterrorism. Turns out, to borrow from former […]

How to Carry On: Lisa Fenn and Dartanyon Crockett (audio)

In 2009 ESPN aired a feature of what seemed would be the story of a couple of young men, Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton, attending high school on the wrong side of town in Cleveland.

Going Up North, to The Cabin, at The Lake (audio)

When I moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota more than a decade ago, there were cultural things I needed to learn about the region that would, allegedly, help me to assimilate. Specifically, things like knowing popular food items, participating in outdoor activities, and… learning MV, or Minnesota Vernacular.

Between the CGP: Episode 5

Between the CGP started as a short – very short – video series chronicling my journey to the next radio home for The Christopher Gabriel Program. Seeking out jobs to do in the interim, my thought was perhaps I’d find something I’d be really good at. I may have found that job. Is working at […]

The Greatest

The Greatest

Muhammad Ali died Friday evening at the age of 74. The date was June 3rd, 2016. It will be a date many of us who grew up marveling at the man known as The Greatest will remember forever. Much like we remember March 8th, 1971. You remember that night, don’t you? It was the first […]

Between the CGP: Episode 4

The hunt for the new radio home continues… and so does the search for new skills I can parlay into a little “transition income.” For that matter, maybe launch a new series on Netflix… …maybe that’s a reach. I decided limiting the search to opportunities in Fresno was, well, too limiting. So… on the road […]

As the epic, ground-breaking series Between the CGP continues – ok that may be excessive – today brings us to an elementary school. I’m a father of girls, so I’m certain this will be a good fit……. Though I’ve been wrong before.

Nothing better than working in the great outdoors. As the hunt for a new station continues, keeping busy is very important. If not at sea level, why not a bit higher up. Fresh air and clear skies make for a wonderful work environment.
