Me and my art at Circa in West Seattle

Where to see John's art on display in West Seattle

I'm a painter. Not the house-painting kind of painter; the hang-it-on-the-wall kind of painter. I started a couple of years ago, and I love doing it. I've sold some of my stuff at art fairs and local art walks, which is nice. It's very gratifying to think that someone wants to spend their hard-...

My Chia Pet fail -- Sorry, Estelle Getty of the Golden Girls

Supported by To tell you the truth, I don't have much of a green thumb. My houseplants wilt, the pots on my patio are filled with brown twigs, and my back yard is a jungle. So when my morning show partner Jeanne surprised me on my birthday with a Chia Pet -- in the image of Golden...

Meet The Sound's new morning show co-host, Jeanne Ashley

Here's a fact: Doing a morning radio show is more fun when you're not the only person in the studio. While I love interacting with listeners every day, there's nothing like an in-person human being in the same room to have a real conversation with. So after talking and meeting with many potential...

John & Jeanne

Starting today, it's John & Jeanne in the morning on The Sound!

When you're on the radio in the morning, you're up before most normal people. You drive to work at zero dark thirty. And if you're flying solo, you're basically talking to yourself for four or five hours a day. Well after eight months of that, I was starting to get a little lonely in the studio,...

Watch: My son and I carved a 94.1 The Sound pumpkin, and it's teal blue

Here's a little father-and-son project I tackled the other day with my charming 7-year-old kid Dawson. I was at Target looking at the Halloween stuff and I discovered this shelf of teal-blue plastic pumpkins that are carvable just like real pumpkins. I didn't realize that teal-blue pumpkins and...
