The Dude's Bio
After breaking into the radio business in 2003, it didn't take long for The Dude to get his name. When all the fox jocks heard that there was a new intern named Shannon their reaction was "Ohhhh! Is she hot?" However to everyone's disappointment Shannon turned out to be a "Dude" which is how the name came about. After a long three years of enduring constant harassment from Dwight of The Rude Awakening which included lap dances and daily groping, The Dude finally made it to the air waves in February 2006 catering to the stoners, drunks, and 3rd shifters of the world while still providing visual proof of his man-hood when neccessary..
Shannon The Dude's Booty Shakin' Contest!
From partial and full nudity to chics hurling on stage from shaking their ass so hard, you never know what to expect at The Dude's Booty Shakin' Contest. And yes, all of these things have happened in previous weeks at the contest. You can see it live in person every Wednesday night at Phoenix Hill Tavern in the saloon at 1:00AM!
This past Saturday night at the KROQ Weenie Roast, 3/4 of Stone Temple Pilots walked on stage and the well known opening to "Vasoline" blared through through the amplifiers but no one in attendance knew what was going on. Then out walks Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park. At that point I'm sure that most of the crowd was still confused as there was no previous explanation of what was happening as the entire performance was a surprise show. The band played through an 8 song set with Chester Bennington fronting the band including a brand new song that they wrote with Chester called "Out Of Time" which you can hear below along with an interview after the show. According to Chester, he is not only the lead singer of Linkin Park but is also the new lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots. Wow!
A man in Mt. Washington, Kentucky went on an eating binge that would make Fat Albert proud. Everybody say hello to Trevor Runyon! Believe it or not, I actually know this guy. We went to the same schools but I never remember him stealing anybody's lunch money to get 2nd helpings in the cafeteria. However, one night this past week Trevor hid in the Mt. Washington Value Market restrooms until the coast was clear and then proceeded to feast like a king. First he fired up a grill from inside the store and gulped down 6 steaks, 2 pounds of shrimp, a birthday cake, salad, and 57 cans of whipped cream. Damn! I couldn't eat that in a week! But the story doesn't end there. After stuffing his face, he then reportedly pooped himself and cleaned up by snatching a pair of Bullitt East High School boxers off the shelf and putting them on. After eating all that, I'm surprised they had a size that fit. Finally when he was finished with his midnight snack, Trevor cleaned up, crawled up into the store attic, found himself a nice cozy spot and fell asleep. After watching surveillance cameras the next day, management was able to locate Trevor and rescue him thanks to the Mt. Washington Fire Department. Did I mention that this is my hometown? I can now officially say that I am hometown proud! Way to eat, Trevor! Now the real question is, "I wonder if I can get him to enter the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest coming up in July?"
