Hi Mase here,

As we make our way through February, you have to hate it for our friends in New England. Sure the Patriots won the Super Bowl, but if dealing with 3 blizzards in a row is the price for a ring...they can have it. So far itís shaping up to be a great year for music with new singles from AWOLNATION, The Black Keys, Smallpools, Jack White and Interpol and weíre only a month and a half into the year.

I know a lot of you are excited about the annual pilgrimage to Austin for SXSW. Last year was the first one I missed in almost a decade. So the only ones that may be more excited than me are the rookies that are going for the first time. If you are one of those be sure to hit me up, Iím sure some of the other veterans and myself can help you out with tips on how to you make your way through it. For example, Tip #1...Comfortable Shoes!!! By the end of the week every step you take will feel like you are walking on fire.

Now itís time for my first installment of "Stuck In My Head". Just like everyone else from time to time I find myself humming as song to myself nonstop. Sometimes good...sometimes not to good. This time itís very good.

A few weeks ago Belle & Sebastian released their ninth album "Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance" and the first single from it "The Party Line" has been "Stuck In My Head" since I first heard it back in November. You might not have noticed, but it was even used as bumper music during The Super Bowl. Why this song hasnít charted is beyond me. The hook gets on a constant loop in my brain, itís got a great beat and itís easy to dance to...not that I would do something like that from time to time while working at home by myself.

So take a few minutes and check it out. If it gets stuck in your head too, your welcome.

Greg Beharrell

It's once again time for another episode of "WHO Is?" This time around we have fellow who is not only from some place called Canada (yet is allowed to live in San Francisco), but he is also going to start doing a column right here for FMQB. It's time to find out....WHO Is Greg Beharrell from KITS or better known as a little station called LIVE 105!

Going back in time, what was the circumstance that truly prompted you to make radio your career?
My face dragged along the birthing canal.  

You told me that you are so into radio that you "literally sit at work after my show, work on stuff for my program, then read articles, and study all the players in the game (I shouldn't know about the Tucson ratings, but I do!)". No offense to the fine people in Tucson, but how long has this been a problem?
If youíre implying that Iím OCD, Iím not.
If youíre implying that Iím OCD, Iím not.
If youíre implying that Iím OCD, Iím not.

What was the last book you read?
The one the prosecutor threw at me.

You mentioned that you worked in Toronto and Vancouver before San Francisco...they are in Canada right?

I still remember the day I left Canada: beautiful scenery, fresh air, the Prime Minister reiterating the terms of my ban.

Follow up question...Did you find it difficult to sound enthusiastic when you HAD to play all of those Canadian bands? Sure...there are some good ones, but really.
Everything I do must feature Canadian content, even this sentence: sorry.
