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!"

Ground Turkey…Literally! [VIDEO]

I proudly admit it...I am a "country boy"...and I THOUGHT I was married to a "country girl! I watched this YouTube video and quickly showed it to my wife. She just as quickly asked me, "are you out of your mind?". So what's the problem with cooking our Thanksgiving turkey, albeit, a little different this year? We won't have a mess in the oven.  You'll have more room to cook other things. Well OK, we'll have a hole in the backyard.

WHAT?! Who Was Chuckles The Clown??? [VIDEO]

I really like our afternoon guy, Brian Russel. He's somewhat new to our Joy FM family, but has fit in nicely. He's also our station's "Brand Manager", or what we used to call the P.D. (Program Director). He's a bit younger -- OK, a lot younger -- than me...but I just found out when I said, "A little song, a little dance...a little seltzer down your pants", that he had NO idea what I was talking about! (Of course you may be wondering why I'd be saying that to the boss!)
