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.

Rik’s ’90s Lost Classic — Hanson ‘MMMBOP’ [VIDEO]

I grew up listening to the radio, in an era when you couldn't just dial up a song anytime you wanted. You were at the mercy of your local DJ.

You had to sit by the radio with a tape recorder, and when a song came on that you liked, you pressed "record," hoping to grab the song in its entirety. The only issue was that at times the disc jockey's voice covered over your song. For me that didn't matter, though -- it just made the mix tape more interesting. I dedicate this blog to the various songs that have come and gone, but will forever remain in that Walkman of the past.

Our Tribute To The Fallen Officers In Dallas [VIDEO]

The shootings in Dallas last night leave a constant reminder that hate and violence are still rampant in our country. It is sad to see a peaceful protest become a vehicle in which terror rains down on innocent people. We sadly lost five police officers last night and lives were crushed and chained. The families that bare the tragedy will possibly never recover and think of the children that are left behind.

MTV Is Re-Branding – Should Music Videos Come Back? (POLL)

Viacom, the folks that own MTV (Music Television) are re-imaging and re-branding MTV for the next generation. MTV right now airs very little music videos and airs shows like Teen Mom and Reality Shows that have nothing to do with music. MTV was founded in 1981 on the premise of music videos playing 24/7 but through the years has abandoned much of it's heritage.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ — Love It Or Hate It? [POLL]

"Batman vs. Superman" made over $400 million this weekend, making it easily DC Comics' highest grossing opening weekend ever -- but the critics have trounced it. I saw it twice over the weekend, once at The Majestic and again Sunday night at The Sunnyside Grand Cinema. I think the critics were being a little harsh.

We've all been there. Just as you hit "send," an electrical jolt pulses through your stomach.

Did that text go to the right person?

It's one thing to accidentally send a joke to your friend in Seattle when you were trying to send it to your brother in Bremerton, It's another thing altogether if you make the mistake an anonymous woman made recently: She sent a Snapchat with a picture of herself -- topless -- to what she thought was her boyfriend's account with the message "What ur missing this weekend:)"

Instead, she'd accidentally sent it to her boss...
