Hey everybody! I'm glad to be back visiting with you on a daily basis. If you've ever listened to Mid Ohio's Country WNCO, then we're probably already friends. If not , let me introduce myself. I'm Matt Appleby, a Lexington native and Ashland High School graduate who's been on the air in mid Ohio since the winter of 1980. And yes that is my real name (who'd make that up?) My wife Kelly and I make our home in Mansfield and our daughter Sara is out on her own working as a case manager RN for a home health care agency. And while this is my first opportunity to DJ on Y105, I have been a fan of this station for a long time and I love the music. I'd be glad to have you as a Facebook friend, too. Thanks for tuning in weeknights on Y105!
For some when you want something bad enough you'd go to any length to get it. What if the love for craft beers and the shortage of said craft beers could get Congress and the Senate to smooth over their differences and end the government shutdown?
The Alcohol and Tobacco tax and Trade Bureau is in charge of processing new applications from craft brewers; the ones who provide those dark & tasty seasonal beers you crave. If the bureau employees aren't working because of the government shutdown, they can't process those applications. If those applications don't get processed, some craft brewers can't distribute their product. And if the can't distribute then...you get the picture. No seasonal craft beer, no seasonal happiness.
All of this just when most of us could really use a tall frosty one!
