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!"

Christmas Shoes For My Christmas “Carol” [VIDEO]

This is personal, very personal. Today, December 17th marks the 6th anniversary of my Mom's death. I still miss her so very much. My Mother, who's name is Carol had been in ill health when God called her home that Saturday afternoon back in 2005. She had just turned 75 the month before.

This is the story of a pair of "Christmas Shoes" I bought my Mom...the day after she passed away.
