Craig Matthews

I am a Western New York native, born and raised in West Seneca and now living with my wife Maribeth, who is an R.N., on our 65-acre farm in Marilla. We do not have children but plenty of "kids" -- our cats, dog and horses. I have worked in Buffalo radio since 1975 and at Townsquare since 2001. Presently, I work just weekends and some fill-in on-air work. My main career is in law enforcement; I'm a mounted lieutenant, chaplain and instructor for the Erie County Sheriff's Office. And, yes, I am the guy famous for the signature radio sign-off, "God bless you, God bless America, never say never!"

It’s Not Nice To Tease Your Dog! [VIDEO]

I love doing these postings for the website...but sometimes your mind just draws a blank. I am so glad they told us in web posting school that if that should happen you can always fall back on two things. Children and animals. Folks LOVE those topics and/or videos. Today, the animal will be in the spotlight!

Rubber Band And Pan Camera Trick [VIDEO]

It seems like everyone these days is taking video. Look at all the uploads on Youtube. I too have been getting in to it with my phone and a new video camera I just purchased. Have you ever tried and use a tripod only to have the video look "jerky" and unprofessional? Here is a little trick I found thanks to Youtube.

WNY Chapter of the NYS Horse Council Invites You On A Trail Ride!

                                                                          

                                                                     

As many of you know, in addition to my part-time on-air work here at Townsquare Media, I am also a proud member of the Erie County Sheriff's Office Mounted Reserve Unit. I joined back in 1996 and am presently a Lieutenant, Instructor and Chaplain. Our unit suffered a huge loss back in July when a freak malfunction caused our Captain's horse trailer to become disconnected from his vehicle. His horse, "Buffalo Joe", was killed instantly. (Incidentally, that trailer was only 8 months old...the investigation of the accident is continuing.) The outpouring of sympathy and concern from the community has been overwhelming! From Russ Salavatore purchasing a new horse, "R.J", for our division...to the not-for-profit Western New York Chapter of the New York State Horse Council's generosity.
