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.

What are you looking for, underwear size?? All that stuff above isn't enough?? Fine. You can email me email@example.com. That's about it, until I write a book or something.
This past Sunday night featured two monumental, culture-defining TV moments: Miley Cyrus twerking and a new episode of Breaking Bad. Let's combine them!
(hat tip to Slate)
Quick - what major world event set the all-time Twitter record?
DUH!!! Obviously it happened during an early August broadcast of the 1986 Japanese movie Castle In The Sky!
"We're being attacked by robot dragonflies! Tweet!!! TWEET, DAMMIT!!!"
It's true - a legion of Castle fans (which I'll just assume are the Japanese equivalent of Star Wars nuts) noticed the movie was on TV and decided to GO FOR THE GOLD! From Slate:
In what has become something of a tradition, fans of the Miyazaki film apparently conspired to tweet the word “balse” at the exact time that it’s uttered in a pivotal moment of the movie. The result of the “Balse Festival”: a global peak of 143,199 tweets in one second, destroying the previous record of 33,388.
I've never seen Castle In The Sky (I have seen several of Hiyao Miyazaki's movies and they're all excellent) so I have no idea what this scene is, what "Balse" means, or why people want to Tweet about it. But records are records, and history is history! WE DID IT, AMERICA*!!!
*by America, I mean Japan.
I remember when Family Guy first aired. I HATED it. I was a Simpsons loyalist and Family Guy seemed like a pale imitation at best. Then came one scene that changed my opinion of Family Guy - the Chicken Fight.
You've probably seen it - a nearly five-minute long fistfight between Peter and a giant chicken that stretches across a variety of action-movie-cliche locations. It's become one of the signature Family Guy bits, they've even done a number of "sequel" fights.
Now, two Hollywood actress/stuntwomen, Jessica Graff and Tree O'Toole - have recreated the original Chicken Fight in live action. This is why we have internet!
Original, for reference:
2013 will be remembered as the year that gay professional athletes finally began to come out publicly. Some do it with magazine covers and carefully planned release dates. Others do so almost by accident.
Darren Young is a WWE wrestler, and he was stopped at the airport by a random reporter trying to get a filler sound bite on whether or not a gay wrestler could make it in WWE. Darren Young chuckled, and said he believed it could work - because he's gay:
Darren Young isn't a big star by any stretch. He's part of a fun tag team called the Prime Time Players. His gimmick is picking his afro all the time. Still, sports (sort of) history! BACK TO THE MATTSPACE!!!
