Andy At The Capital Y Tri

Saturday was the Kennebec Valley Capital Y Tri, and B 98.5 had a few participants/teams on hand, me being one of them. Seeing as I'm a terrible swimmer, (I sink faster than a mafia snitch with a cinder block attached) the idea of doing a tri has always been out of reach. Plus, after being hit by a car a few years back, my running game has been next to zero. However, in the same vein as Chris Janson's Fix A Drink "but I can ride a bike!"

Andy Looks Back On The 25th Anniversary Of His First Air Shift

It's 10:42pm on a Saturday in August of 1992. I'm laying on the couch, and practicing the same words over and over. Endlessly rehearsing with different inflections, I still couldn't get it right.
