Glazed donuts

Winning donuts for your workplace is fun for you, and for us too!

Supported By StickerYou StickerYou.com We had this idea last fall -- let's send a couple of dozen Krispy Kreme donuts every weekday to Sound listeners in workplaces from Tacoma to Everett, from Poulsbo to Carnation. Who doesn't like donuts, right? And then we had an even better idea -- once a week...

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,...

Blue pumpkin 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...

I'm listening

I'm Listening is this Sunday -- I talked to a UW expert about suicide and mental illness

I generally like to post stuff here about cool new places to eat around the Sound, or fun things to do with the family on the weekend, or the best places to have a drink with a view. But once in awhile, there's a serious subject that captures my attention, and -- I hope -- yours, too. This is one...

John eating an apple

Meet me at Sprouts Farmers Market in Mill Creek today from noon to 2!

Why am I eating an apple in that picture? Because I like organic fruit and vegetables? Well that's true. And because I'm going on a road trip to Mill Creek today and I'd like to meet you there. If you like your food fresh, natural, organic, or even gluten-free, your new favorite grocery store may...
