Rik Mikals

I’ve been up and down the radio dial as the famous "WKRP" line goes. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Wash., at KCLK – a country station -- and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I was on KMPS in Seattle in the 1990s and moved to Yakima in 1998 as program director of KFFM. I moved again and again until I was in Bakersfield, Calif,, and then Tri-Cities, and then back to Yakima, and again to Tri-Cities and more! I bought a farm in Prosser a few years back with my wife Megan, and we have three great dogs named Phoebe, Barkley and Roxy. My son is an aspiring musician and plays, performs and writes original music. I also have a stepson named Kyran. I’m known for having a never-ending knowledge of pop culture and easily get addicted to TV reality shows. I love "Star Trek," Mustangs (the car) and '80s music. I’m a huge comic book fan, having a comic collection easily totaling more than 6,000 comics.

An Unsolicited Virtual Tour Of Yakima’s 929 The Bull Radio Station [VIDEO]

I was at KFC for lunch today and the front service gal asked me "what time do you get started in the morning"? I replied that I go on air at 5:30 am which seemed to surprise her and as I sat down to eat my lunch, I noticed a new video on my cell phone.

I didn't take a new video but there it was. I closely inspected it and discovered that my phone was recording my walk to the studio as I start my daily shift and the video follows me until I start my show.

The video is crazy looking as it shows perfectly how I start my day and filmed it perfectly without my knowledge.

Nike is Raffling Off “Back To The Future” Shoes For Charity – Sweet!

A huge part of my childhood was the "Back To The Future" movie and it's awesome to hear that Nike has pairs of the self-lacing shoes that you can own. If you want a pair (there are only 89 sets in existence) you can buy a raffle ticket for charity.

Pow! Bam! Zap! Rik’s Tribute To Adam West

The definitive voice for a generation of Batman fans is Adam West. I grew up watching the 1960s "Batman" TV series long before Michael Keaton's Batman hit the big screen in 1989. It is hard to imagine that at one time Adam West struggled to find work as a serious actor after his "Batman" days. I salute Adam West today (Sept. 19) on his 88th birthday.

I Paid Someone to Blog For Me and It Cost Me $25 — and My Pride

I'm one of those folks who thinks he's pretty clever ... most of the time.

I have to do daily postings on our radio station website as part of the new era of radio broadcasting. I actually enjoy the exercise, but occasionally I get stumped on what to write about and or what might be amusing for you to read. I thought long and hard and I couldn't think of one thing to write about it until it hit me -- as all great ideas do.-- like the apple falling from the tree.

I would hire someone to write my blogs!

Things I Learned Going To Court In Prosser

I was off the show yesterday because I had to go to court in Prosser.

I had gotten a speeding ticket at the end of last month on the river road outside of Prosser. The Prosser Police have a little speed trap along the Yakima river and it was my own fault because I knew the Police would be sitting there waiting. I did decide to go to court and mitigate the ticket and I learned a few things in the process.
