Hi, My name is Mitch Silver (before you ask, that name is real)...and they trusted me with a blog. I'm a born and raised CT guy, hailing from Waterbury, CT. You may have heard me do traffic, fill ins, weekends, or seen me out at events. I love radio especially because it's the only form of entertainment that's safe for use while driving. Thanks for checking my page out. I'll be posting all about some of my favorite things here, like dumb criminals, viral videos, food stuff, and ranting and raving about everything and anything that may tickle my fancy.
When are you ever near hot lava? I can't say I blame the guy for trying it to see what happens. I'd probably have done the same thing.

Turns out the Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte is back a little bit early...IF you have the password. Dropping the phrase "PSL 10" (Pumpkin Spiced Latte 10th anniversary could net you the drink earlier than the Sept 3rd release date. Just keep it on the hush hush though!

A lot of people are scared of spiders, but scared enough to call 911? This girl clearly was terrified, to be fair she recently had a relative get sick from a spider bite....but STILL!!!
