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.

New Justice League Trailer Takes Me Back To 1978 [VIDEO]

My generation would say seeing "Star Wars" in 1977 at the movie theater had a profound effect on them, but for me it was the first time I saw "Superman: The Movie."

I was 8 years old and I couldn't wait to see that movie.

I lived 30 miles from the nearest movie theater, so the car ride to the show was possibly the most excruciating thing a kid could endure, I was so excited that I was beside myself.

Is It St. Patty’s Day or St. Paddy’s Day? Take Our Poll [POLL]

Today is St. Patrick's Day, honoring Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. I saw a Facebook comment about someone being frustrated and offended when folks refer to St. Patrick's Day as St. Paddy's Day.
