If you could go back in history and spend one day with a person (or band) from the music, entertainment, sports or political fields, who would it be and what intrigues you the most about this person?
Jimmy Steal, Power 106: Steve Jobs. He wasn’t an engineer yet he had a sixth sense about what people wanted and how to build it in a way that resembled no other products.  He had an amazing eye for detail in design, functionality and most importantly cool.

Zach Dillion, KDWB: Just to not be cliché and pick a music artist for this question... I will pick Ken Griffey Jr. Growing up loving baseball in the late 80's, early 90's, there was NO ONE better. If I could go back, I'd love to be at a game of his and see that swing for just 4 more at bats. That's all I ask. 4 more at bats. Best/smoothest swing baseball has ever seen. It's like butter.

Rob Roberts, Q100: The Beatles on their “last day” playing on the roof of Abbey Road Studios.

Jared Banks, KUDD: I would love to spend a day with New Zealand sporting legend Burt Munro.  People may know the movie about his life The World’s Fastest Indian.  Burt is a Kiwi icon and I would love to spend a day on the Utah Salt Flats chopping it up with stories, turning wrenches, going fast and having a good laugh!

Jon Zellner, iHeartMedia: Music, John Lennon. Entertainment, Jimmy Stewart. Sports, Arthur Ashe. Politics, William Henry Harrison (to remind him to bundle up on inauguration day).

Big Rob, KSME: I would say Justin Timberlake or maybe even MJ while he was still with it. Both of those guys have been such a big part of the music industry and seem like super chill dudes. They could teach my uncoordinated ass to dance too!! #TwoLeftFeet

Matt Talluto, WBYR: Jim Morrison because I'm pretty sure he wasn't as baked as many claimed he was. And if he WAS, then it'd make for one hell of a night!

Chris James, WQXA: Is it wrong to say Hitler so I could take him out?

Mike Miller, WHKF: Dick Clark. He is the Godfather of radio and television broadcasting. Would love to go back and see how he prepared to do his broadcasts.
Chad Rufer, KZZO: Frank Sinatra... Who wouldn’t want to spend one day with the Chairman of the Board. 

Otis, WDJX: Tupac for sure! Favorite artists ever. He was a rose that grew from concrete. Gave me a lot of drive and made me realize we can all be anything we set our minds to. #ThugLife

Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. No explanation needed.

Java Joel, WAKS: The Beatles. Why? Cuz they’re the BEATLES!

Jammer, WEZB: Anyone who was has been killed and to go back and let them know to change their plans that and do things differently.

Jonathan Reed, WNOK: John Lennon. I believe he actually stood for something. Back then it was a time when he trying to make a positive change in the world.

Brian Mack, WXXL: John Lennon, only he could tell us if The Beatles would have ever toured or worked on a project together again.

Dave Dyer, Warner Bros.: I would like to spend the day clothes shopping with Miles Davis. While his ability to evolve and innovate musically is well documented it is easy to overlook that he was also on the forefront of fashion. He didn’t just stay in front of trends, he created styles that even the fashion business followed. It should be mentioned that even after the pros caught up, he was still doing it far better. And he did it more than a few times.

Chase Murphy, KXXM: Phoenix Stone. He was the original Nick Carter for BSB, who quit because he didn’t think the band was going to be successful.  I just want to ask him to repeat my order back at Starbucks. 

Randi West, WMTX: It would be Princess Diana. Just to meet her and have a conversation with her would be amazing.

Tony Waitekus/WHTQ: Elvis, because he’s the king!

Chris Michaels, FM 100: Ryan Seacrest or Carson Daly. I’d love to hang out with them for a day.  
Reid, KZZP: Cal Ripken Jr. He just had that no quit attitude and a real drive and passion for the game.

Jeremy Rice, WBLI: Pablo Picasso in Paris 1911 developing Cubism.  Igor Stravinsky in Russia 1913 writing The Rite of Spring. Winston Churchill 1945 in London for celebration drinks. The Beatles in London 1967 making magic.

Eric Chase, WVKS: Abraham Lincoln while he delivered his 2nd inaugural speech. He's one of my idols.

Mike “OD” O’Donnell, WKRZ: Given the current political environment, I would love to meet and spend a day with Abraham Lincoln, but not at the play. He was truly a great president. 

John Mayer, WFLZ: Johnny Cash, I’d love to be a fly on the wall and see that roller coaster ride that dude went on.

Kobe, WWHT: The original “Rat Pack” from the sixties. Couldn’t get much better than that!

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia/Atlanta: Walt Disney, what doesn’t intrigue you about him? As Walt said, “if you can dream, you can do it.”

Fish Boy, WKRZ: I’ve always been enthralled with FDR. I’d love to go back and see what he went through. He was in office for three full terms and presided over our country through the Great Depression and WWII. It would be fascinating to get his take on all that he experienced.

Tom Barney, iHeartMedia-Binghamton: Harry Truman. He’s my favorite President. We could certainly use him today. He did not have a college education.  Served in WWI.  Had been a farmer.  A failed business owner.  Really bad eyesight from the time he was born.  Did not get into Politics until he was 50. President Truman dealt with every issue in an honest manner and made his decisions not based on anything other than "is it good for America?"  He never wanted to be President so he didn’t do things to make himself look good. He retired a poor man financially as he didn’t use the Presidency to make himself wealthy.  Truly a great man and I’d love to sit with him and ask him about all the tough decisions he had to make

Slimfast, KRBZ: Jesus Christ, because he could do magic and stuff...
