  • Life Lesson, Heather Donahue and Big J's Playoff Picks

    Big J’s “Life Lesson” today was a simple, yet very important message and that is to drive safely in the current weather conditions. Knock the snow out of your wheel wells, otherwise there’s a chance it freezes up and causes even more issues than you might already face. Get up a little sooner and leave early for work, as that option is better than being late for work or speeding to get there, putting yourself and others in danger. Drive slower and if people want to get mad that you aren’t going fast enough, they can go pound sand. If your truck or SUV says 4X4 on it, you don’t have magical winter weather driving powers. Safety first, friends.

  • Snapchat, Adam of Three Days Grace and The Red Light Variety Show

    It's Tech Tour time. Big J recently found out about a little app called Snapchat. It allows you to send text messages or photos with a time delay to self destruct in a set amount of minutes after sending. Basically you can snap a shot of your junk, send it off and it will end up deleting after someone sees it. The app is starting to reach the news in an attempt to create awareness for parents due to the rising popularity amongst teens.

  • Cosmopolis, Rich Eisen and Song Fights

    After a narrow victory over a great track from Bullet For My Valentine yesterday, Sevendust took on Eye Empire this morning on Cage Match. Needless to say, Sevendust rolled on with their track "Decay" and will endure another speed bump tomorrow.

  • DVDumbass, Dennis Haysbert and Miss Alabama

    Pete has returned from the Rose Bowl, which means Sports with Pete is back! As you probably know, there was a big college football game last night. Well, it wasn’t much of a game and all you need to know is this:

  • Parental Punch, Kim Iversen and Sevendust

    This morning, Big J punched a particular mall store right in the face for not having an 18 and over age restriction when venturing into certain parts of the store. A child of any age can just wander towards the back of the store and pick up any adult item of their choice. Big J never had to worry about this scenario during his younger years of browsing the store, but now that he’s a full-fledged father of two daughters, he has a slightly different opinion on the matter.

  • Ozzy Airport, Big J's Life Lesson and Sexiest City

    Your very own city of Boise has made the list of Top 10 Sexiest Cities, ranking in at #5 in the national. We also rank 10th overall in condom sales and 2nd in birth rate. So, what I get from this study is that Boise is buying plenty of condoms, but not properly using them.

  • Tech Tour, 2013 Predictions and Buckcherry

    To kick off a new year, we came up with a list of predictions that will be locked and sealed in a safe place until the beginning of 2014. At that time we will pull them back out and see where these predictions stand.

  • Val Kilmer, Big J's Pigskin Punch and the Return of Cage Match

    Val Kilmer was today’s target for Bad Impressions. The man, the myth, the legend of Val turned 53-years-old on Monday. Happy Birthday to our favorite honorary Boisean!

  • Big J's Surgery, Best Of Week and Happy Holidays

    Three important things for the week:

  • Andrew Dice Clay, Top 5 Lists and Christmas Vacation

    Funny man, Andrew Dice Clay, was kind enough to chat with us this morning. He has a comedy special called Audacious which airs December 31st on Showtime. He called to tell us all about that and what he’s been up to as of recent. Check out the full interview right here.

  • DVDumbass, Josh Stewart and Final Four

    During the last DVDumbass of the year, Big J took a pass on “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening” and “The Good Doctor” to watch a film called “Bro,” which is about none other than the world of Motocross. Check out the trailer below and tune in tomorrow during the 6 o’clock hour for the review.

  • Life Lessons, Boise Bombers and Toys for Tots

    Spencer, Jeff and Monica joined us in the studio this morning to chat about their big wheelchair rugby event taking place this weekend. It’s all to benefit Toys for Tots. Please, do what you can and check out this event. All the info is right here.

  • Camp Fred, Clue #3 and Mick Foley

    Yesterday, Big J picked up a movie called “Fred 3: Camp Fred” from the ol’ Redbox for his weekly DVDumbass selection. Well, as expected, the movie was just awful. Instead of breaking a rule from the DVDumbass handbook and pressing stop, he forged on, but spent that time to e-mail, fbook, etc. That being said, you can skip “Fred 3: Camp Fred.”

  • DVDumbass, Clue #2 and The Cake Boss

    During DVDumbass this week, Big J passed up on movies calles “V-H-S” and “The Occupant,” ending up with a high-quality film called “Fred 3: Camp Fred.” Tomorrow could bring quite possibly the most stellar movie review to date.

  • Face Punch Backfire, Clue #1 and Fred & Carrie of Portlandia

    We unveiled the first clue for “Find Santa’s Sack” and you can check Big J’s desk off the list of possible destinations. Tune in tomorrow morning around 7:30A for your next clue.

  • Free X Concert Announcement, Toys For Tots and Cage Match Madness

    The Marines stopped by this morning to chat Toys for Tots and how you can help make a difference for a child this year. It’s simple, just purchase a toy and drop it off at any donation location. Check for the boxes in front of any Treasure Valley Walmart, at tonight’s Idaho Stampede game or even right here at the station. There’s another Stampede game tomorrow night and if you bring by a toy, you will receive a free ticket to an upcoming game. So go out there and help out children in need this Holiday season. Your efforts make a difference.

  • Tech Tour, Pizza Perfume and Yelp Sued

    Jack Black was hand-selected from a list of the “Top 10 Overpaid Actors" as today’s “Bad Impression.” That list also includes Eddie Murphy, Katherine Heigl, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Nicolas Cage, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Denzel Washington and Sara Jessica Parker.

  • Stolen, Worst Wife Gifts and Find Santa's Sack

    During this week’s installment of DVDumbass, Big J once again selected another winner with a movie called “Stolen” over “Hope Springs” and “Thunderstruck.” This movie features Nicolas Cage so it can’t be too awful right?! Find out during tomorrow’s show.

  • Important Stuff, BCS Busted and Pissed Pantera

    A few bits of “Important Stuff” we learned this morning: there are talks of the government doing away with the dollar bill and transitioning over to dollar coins. For the record, Big J strongly supports this movement, while the rest of the country most likely will not. In entertainment news, the creator of Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane, will lend his voice to an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. After all the back and forth stabs at one another, it appears both sides are coming together to boost ratings for Fox in this interesting turn of events.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Half the World and Toys for Tots

    Big J taught us a little something today during this week’s “Life Lesson.” That is, to sometime relax and not always go with your first instinct. Last night before Thursday Night Football, he tried to make a last minute Fantasy Football lineup change, but it was too late as roster management was already locked. Well, turns out that the player who was locked up, actually performed better than the one he wanted to put in. There you have it. Sometimes it pays off to be patient and just let things happen.
