Matt Meyer (who is me, I'm the one writing this, the station doesn't employ a biographer) is a Central PA native. He's been on the radio in Harrisburg for some time, across a variety of formats. He lives with his sweetheart and three cats and enjoys rocking.
Matt (who is me, still the one writing) enjoys NFL football and LOVES to play fantasy football, which is why he hosts The TFP, a weekly football podcast found here. Matt also enjoys Phillies baseball, but chooses not to express that love in podcast form.
A fan of live comedy, Matt can occasionally be seen hosting local comedy shows around the area.
A fan of live music, Matt can often be found at shows or jamming with his homies in Project Awesome.
A fine of fine living, Matt cooks a mean omelette and knows what quinoa is.

Oops! Up until last week, the city of Boston was home to a semi-pro women's basketball team named... well, I'll let you see the logo for yourself:
Yikes. These things happen. Circumstances change, and all of a sudden words that nobody thought twice about become wildly offensive. Fortunately, the team is handling it the right way. From Gawker:
But after last week's marathon bombing lent their namesake global infamy, the Boston Bombers have judiciously decided to rename their franchise. "We changed it due to the events Monday," a spokesperson confirmed to us over email. “Our fans [were] not happy with the name."
The team plans to unveil their new moniker sometime this week, but they’ve already taken measures to erase their former franchise’s footprint from the web, abandoning BostonBombersBasketball.com, shutting down the team’s Twitter account, and deactivating its Facebook page.
This sort of thing has happened before. For example, the NBA's Washington Bullets became the Wizards in 1995 to avoid the violent associations. Then there's the Washington Redskins, who OF COURSE would change their name rather than keep such a patently offensive racial stereotype-oh wait, they haven't changed at all. Well, two out of three ain't bad.
Today is Earth Day, which I plan to celebrate by spending the entire day right here on planet Earth. Every year on this day I think of this song, by 90's band Dramarama. It's the only one I've ever encountered that was specifically written about Earth Day. I had trouble finding the original music video, but here's one done in an all-white filter for some reason:
And here's a live clip in case you want to see actual people:
Happy Earth Day!
We can safely award the Greatest Headline Ever trophy now. This will never be topped:

On this day in 1991, a band took the stage in a tiny ballroom at a Seattle hotel, and debuted a new song they'd been working on.
The band was Nirvana, and the new song was 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. Here's footage of that first performance:
'Smells Like Teen Spirit' is a rare thing: a song that legitimately changed the course of mainstream music. Once 'Teen Spirit' broke, every other rock band sounded dated and irrelevant. Record labels scrambled to sign new bands (especially from Seattle) and dumped their old ones. The Lollapalooza era hit full swing. Equally important, it gave us Weird Al's 'Smells Like Nirvana'.
Here's Nevermind producer Butch Vig (who also produced Smashing Pumpkins and was the drummer for Garbage) talking about hearing the song for the first time:
