Hello, my friends!
 
I am over the moon to be a part of the Dom and Jane Show. I am finally living proof of that old saying, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”
I was born in New York, although I call myself a Ken Caryl girl… A Chatfield graduate to be exact. And my many adventures have brought me everywhere from Europe to California. The stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, to the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. And after years of soul searching, two broken engagements, four different colleges, and millions of hours in the restaurant industry, here I am. Yappin yer ear off on Mix 100.
 
A quick breakdown of moi includes, but is not limited to:
 
1. I would gratefully eat sushi for each meal every day of my life if I could afford it.
 
2. My dirty little secrets include, but are not limited to: a full-on nail polish addiction, Bryan Fuller television series, live bar trivia, Goonies/Pretty Woman quotes, Daddy-Daughter meals, boxed-wine consumption, Marilyn Monroe and Beatles snapshot collecting, and The Gin Blossoms. I freaking love the Gin Blossoms.
 
3. My doggie, Kramer, is the cutest Shih Tzu on the planet; quite possibly the cutest dog in the world. It’s really not fair to other pups how ridiculously adorable my Kramer is.
 
4. Friends are my family, and my family is my life… And oh how I love to embarrass my sucker friends and family.
 
5. I, without fail, say what everyone is thinking but too scared to voice out loud. It’s a blessing… And a curse. (As I’m sure you know from listening to the show!)
 
Let's be friends! I'm good for a chuckle or two. Find me on Facebook. And please, keep listening to the Dom and Jane Show weekday mornings for hours of laughs, stories, and general merriment. You, my dears, rock my world.  Check out my Instagram, Facebook or blog below!
 

The Fray Song You Need To Hear

by Emily Makinzie posted May 29 2014 5:57AM
 
Lead singer and pianist Issac, and bass/guitar player Joe of The Fray stopped by the Mix studio yesterday. They are one of Colorado's beloved namesakes, with all 4 members of the band growing up in Arvada, and they are just simply cool gents. 
 

Every time I've dreamt of meeting a huge musician, I had imagine someone who engages with me. A star who is sweet and genuine, laughs at my jokes, and makes me feel like an old friend. And, to my bliss, Issac and Joe were all of these things and more. There's something wonderfully comfortable about being in a room with just some dudes from Colorado. That's what connected us, and turned a meeting of pop superstars/little radio girl into a meeting of neighbors. I mean, at one point in time The Fray had the best selling digital album of all time. But you'd never know it by the humble demeanor of these awesome guys.
But I digress... The Fray performed 3 perfect songs. And the last song they played was a little gem that you would never hear on the radio. They did a sort of acapella version of it, and added a few verses at the end of a powerful hymn. It was stunning. I'm pretty sure it brought some to tears. And while right now I can't post the Mix 100 version of it, I'd like you to listen to the album version. 
It could be about love. Or a higher power. Or friendship. Or Colorado. But whatever you think it's about, it will mean something to you. And if you're not already, this song may turn you into a Fray fan.
*sigh*
