Rick Andrews

Hey there, Rick Andrews here. I thought I would give you a little background about me. I was born and raised in Bangor, Maine and was bitten by the radio "bug" since the age of 7. By the time I was 14 years old I got my dream job and "cracked the mic" for the first time and have never looked back. My career has taken me from Maine, New York, California and New Mexico. Rick has been described as a "walking encyclopedia" of music info and trivia. When not on the air at Mix 94.1, I enjoy reading entertainment Biographies, Sci-Fi and management books. I also enjoy sketching, painting, drawing and practicing card & coin magic. You usually can find me on the air Monday through Friday from 3pm-7pm.

Christmas Music Trivia: Bobby Helms – Jingle Bell Rock [VIDEO]

I mentioned earlier today that I was kinda shocked that Band-Aid's 'Do They Know It's Christmas' beat out John Lennon's 'Merry Xmas (War Is Over).' In my head I guess I thought, 'age has its privilege,' but that's what I love about letting you cast your vote and be heard

How To Cope With A Loss Over The Holidays

The holidays are usually associated with families and friends getting together, but there are many people out there that are also dealing with a loss of a loved one, some for the first time.

Let's be honest, no matter what, the holidays can be a very stressful time on any given good day. There's the prepping of food, coordinating family members who may be coming in from out of town, the hustle and bustle of fighting the crowds as you look for that perfect gift for a loved one.

Your First Look At This Year’s Black Friday Ads 2013

I was sitting here this morning thinking 'where has this year gone.'

It's hard to believe that in seven weeks that we will be getting ready to ring in the new year.

For better of worse, Thanksgiving not only marks the day that we sit down with family and friends, carve the turkey and munch on candy yams, but it's also the day that  stores will be opening early to kick off the holiday rush. Some of the those store will open up at 6pm on Thanksgiving night.

Below you will find links to some of the Black Friday ads for 2013.

The Mischievous Adventures Of Merry: The Elf On A Shelf [PHOTOS]

Excuse this proud Father as I brag on my eldest Daughter for a moment.

Tabitha is one of the most talented and creative people I know and as much as I would like to take a little bit a credit for that talent I have to admit that it all comes from her Momma.

Tabby has her own photography business and also has begun crocheting some cool hats for family, friends and even has starting taking orders through her Facebook page. She's making me a 'minion' from Despicable Me as we speak.

Merry, a little Elf from the North Pole, has also noticed her creativity and actually has allowed Tabby to take some pictures of her when she comes to visit as the Holidays get closer.

So, ‘When Is Mix Going All Christmas Music?’ [POLL]

The joke is that you can only count on two things, death and taxes, but that's not necessarily true. You can always count on Mix 94.1 to bring you the Holiday hits 24/7 as we get towards the end of the year.

Just like last year, at the The Great Turkey Drop with the High Plains Food Bank, Lori and I were asked one of the most famous questions we get starting in October, "When are you going to start playing Christmas music?"

Well keep reading to find out IF I actually know the answer.

5 Fun Facts About PEZ

Growing up as a child I always remembered loving PEZ candies. To be honest, I STILL love PEZ candies. Thank goodness I never became a collector of these little pieces of plastic that dispensed sweet treats. I'm sure I would have gone broke if I had.

The word PEZ is taken from pfefferminz, which is German for peppermint. The original prototype was created in 1927 in Austria. Currently they are being made, round-the-clock, in Orange, Connecticut.

Rico Suave’s Gerardo: Where Is He Now? [VIDEO]

Rico.

Suave.

If you listened to pop radio in the winter of 1991, then you're very familiar with those two words from Gerardo.

Gerardo is considered a one-hit wonder with that top 10 hit, it peaked at #7 on the Billboard charts. He did have a follow up single, We Want The Funk, which reached #16 on the same chart, but he will always be remembered as 'The Rico Suave Guy.'

The big question is what has he been up to since dominating the airways in 1991 and what is he doing now? You may be surprised.
