ON-AIR | 6AM – 10AM
I’ve hosted the morning show on Mix 100 since before our producer was born. And that’s not a joke.
Without a doubt I’m most proud of The Mindbender, the most popular radio contest in the world. You can have it emailed to you every day by signing up at MindbenderClub.com
Besides radio, I also write and publish. If you’re into action/adventure, check out the Eric Swan thriller series. FYI, they aren’t for kids.
If you ARE looking for books for your teens/pre-teens, I’d recommend either the Galahad series for young adults, or the Buster Blank books for grades 4 through 6. All can be found at DomTesta.com
Thanks for spending your mornings with us!
When you’re introducing a new car model to your lineup, one of the best things you can do is make it a head-turner. Get everyone’s attention first before the excitement wears off and it blends into the background with all its competitors. Infiniti did just that when they introduced the QX55 for the 2022 model…Continue Reading
Technically, the X3 falls into the category of small SUV. And yet, nothing about it seems small. It delivers big performance with some big-time fun. It’s been nearly twenty years since BMW unveiled the X3, and it’s been a fan favorite since that very first day. And really, what’s not to like? It delivers good…Continue Reading
For thirty years, Ford produced a sport utility vehicle called the Bronco, built to compete with Jeep. The two companies maintained a spirited rivalry until 1996, when Ford pulled the plug. And, for the next 25 years, the Bronco simply lived on as a legend as the F-150 took over the crown. Ah, but now…Continue Reading
As we like to say on the radio show, People are different. That’s never more true than when we choose the cars that catch our eye. Some opt for bigger and boxier, while others prefer smaller and sleeker. Then some people, I guess, like front grills that look like a beaver. Okay, so I’m kidding,…Continue Reading
The Q3 actually debuted in 2011, but not in America. For the first four years Audi kept the car in Europe, letting it mature a bit. But that was a problem, because when it finally did make it across the pond, its unveiling in the U.S. left many unimpressed. The problem was that it hadn’t…Continue Reading
Here’s the story of an SUV that went on a diet, and things turned out well. The original GMC Acadia was a full-sized SUV when it debuted for 2007, but ten years later the automaker lopped off a few inches, both length and width, along with about 700 pounds. Today, with some minor additions for…Continue Reading
You’ve heard of gateway drugs and gateway tech. Get ready for the gateway luxury car. Volkswagen has dabbled in the luxury sandbox in the past, with only a smattering of success. Now they’re back with a vengeance, proudly showing off a car that’s a little bit sedan, a little bit hatchback, and a good dose…Continue Reading
Here’s something that stood out to me when I sat down to write this review of the BMW X3. You can find a starting MSRP of about $42,000. The version I drove came in at more than $82,000. I’d say you have choices. And here’s the cool thing: All of those choices will be good,…Continue Reading
We generally buy an SUV in order to accommodate our oh-so-busy lives of hauling people and stuff around. We don’t naturally think, “Hey, I want something sporty and badass. Think I’ll get an SUV.” Well, my friend, welcome to the marriage of utility and fun. It’s called the Stelvio. Or, using the name on its…Continue Reading
The Chevrolet Equinox made its debut for the 2005 model year as a mid-size SUV before eventually dropping down in weight class to become a compact crossover. The results have been pretty stellar throughout the journey. In fact, last year Chevy sold more units of the Equinox than ever before, approaching 350,000. It’s a hit.…Continue Reading
