CHAZ RIDDLE AKA THE CHAZMAN BLOG

2/19/24  Just a heads up to folks. I’m headed to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame this week so, if you have any suggestions, things I should look for or questions I should ask….let me know. 

2/16/24 Hey, everyone, it’s mid-February and things are getting exciting around here! I am heading to the Rock
N Roll Hall Of Fame next week and I’ll be doing some interviews and going behind the scenes of some of
their most popular and famous displays. I’ll bring back lots of video and pictures and hopefully it will be
fun for you to hear about and see what I have in store for you.
In other news, I went over 100 shows this week and thanks to you, it’s been a blast. Congrats to
Kemosabi Joe as he celebrated 59 years in broadcasting so suffice it to say, I have some catching up to
do. With your support I’ll keep chipping away. Before you know it, it’ll be 200 shows and then who
knows?!  We lost Toby Keith this month and as a tribute I put a little video on Facebook and wow the response
was overwhelming. It got over 17,000 views and we gained over 70 new followers, so welcome
everyone. When something like this happens it really brings us all together so thank you and welcome
to WTHU. I hope you’ll join me every morning from 9-12 as I play some of the greatest songs ever made.
I hope everyone who made their new year’s resolution is sticking with it and I wish you much success.
Remember, I ran health clubs for over 20 years and if you have a nutrition or fitness question, hit me up!
I’d love to help. I’d also love to hear your song requests so again, HIT ME UP. Just send me a message on FB and I’ll make
sure and respond asap. Have a great Month everyone and welcome aboard to all our new followers!

1/22/24  WELCOME LOYAL LISTENERS AND CLASSIC ROCK AFICIONADOS LIKE MYSELF. THE CHAZMAN IS DOING
GREAT. LOADS OF VOICE-OVER WORK AND PLENTY TO DO SHOVELING SNOW, DOING THE MORNING
RADIO SHOW AND TRYING TO BE A GOOD PERSON. SOMETIMES ITS DIFFICULT WHEN YOU RUN INTO
MORONS BUT GOD HAS A PLAN FOR THEM TOO SO I TRY AND BE KIND.
DID Y’ALL KNOW I WAS THE CHAZMANIAN DEVIL ON THE AMERICAN GLADIATOR TV SHOW? YUP I HAVE
THE BROKEN RIBS AND BAD SHOULDER TO PROVE IT! I AM A FORMER ACTIVE DUTY U.S MARINE, AND A
MR MARYLAND BODYBUILDING CHAMPION AND I RAN HEALTH CLUBS FOR 20 + YEARS. I ALSO WORKED
AS AN EMT AND A XRAY TECH AMONG OTHER LITTLE JOBS ALONG THE WAY. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY
GOAL TO WORK IN BROADCASTING AND THANKS TO WTHU AND YOU, I AM FINALLY REALIZING A LIFETIME DREAM AND WHEN FEBRUARY 13 TH ROLLS AROUND, I WILL CELEBRATE MY 100 TH SHOW! I LOVE PLAYING MUSIC AND ENTERTAINING AND YOU MAY HAVE SEEN ME ON A FEW TV SHOWS AND
MOVIES AND DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE IT. I HAVE A ROLE IN THE UPCOMING NATALIE PORTMAN SERIES
CALLED LADY IN THE LAKE WHICH DEBUTS SOON ON APPLE TV. MY FAVORITE ARTISTS …. THE ONES I ALWAYS STOP WHAT IM DOING AND TURN UP THE VOLUME FOR ARE ELVIS, NEIL YOUNG, JIM CROCE, GLEN CAMPBELL, THE CARPENTERS, ELTON JOHN, LUKE COMBS,
MICHAEL BUBLE AND CHRIS STAPLETON. THERE ARE OTHERS BUT MY LIST COULD GO ON AND ON. SUFFICE IT TO SAY, MY TASTES ARE ECLECTIC AT BEST AND IM LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR BEATLES WEEKEND!
IM A DIEHARD BALTIMORE ORIOLES FAN. I GO TO AS MANY GAMES AS I CAN AFFORD BUT IVE NEVER CAUGHT A BALL AND I USUALLY STAND IN THE MEZANINE AREA OVER RIGHT FIELD. THERES A BEER VENDOR THERE TOO SO ITS CONVENIENT! ITS NEW YEARS RESOLUTION TIME SO TAKE IT FROM ME. PACE YOURSELF. BE LIKE THE TORTOISE, NOT THE HARE. SET SMALL GOALS, EAT AS CLEANLY AS POSSIBLE BUT GIVE YOURSELF A CHEAT DAY OR CHEAT MEAL ONCE IN A WHILE. YOULL REALIZE HOW MUCH BETTER FOOD TASTES WHEN YOURE NOT BINGING EVERY DAY. TRAIN YOUR LEGS IF YOU CAN. BIG MUSCLES NEED ENERGY AND YOUR CALORIE CONSUMPTION WILL GO UP. THAT MEANS YOULL BURN MORE CALORIES AT REST AND THEREFORE WEIGHT LOSS AND YOU’LL FEEL BETTER AND SLEEP BETTER TOO. UNTIL NEXT TIME FOLK, HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT. SONG REQUESTS, QUESTIONS ON EXERCISE OR ANYTHING YOU WANNA COMMENT ON. IM OPEN!
