Potter’s Soda Challenge: Day 1

2796195

My name is Potter, and I LOVE Soda (or Pop if you prefer).  I know it’s not great for me but there are worse things I could be putting into my body right?

Candy (who also happens to be my wife) is concerned about my health and wants me to cut back. Today she became convinced that if I could see visually how much soda I’m drinking I’d probably quit right away. So she asked me to save every can and carry it around with me for a week.

Why in the world would I agree to that? 

Because she offered be a Free Day to do whatever I want, guilt-free. We have 2 boys under 4 at home so that is an AWESOME offer.

Our producer Jeetz is supporting the idea – Not because he cares about my health, but because he wants to see me walking around town with a big bag of empty cans.

So starting today, I will save every can of pop I drink and take it with me. If we’re at a restaurant with fountain drinks I’ll have to get extra cans to represent those glasses to fill my bag (which I can borrow from my Dad). This will last through Sunday.

I have’t promised to quit or cut back, but Candy is hoping seeing how much I’m drinking will shock me into improving my health. Probably not though. :)


NEW Candy + Potter Podcast Link

Candy + Potter

We have our permanent podcasts setup again! Thank you for your patience.

Every day after we get off the air we record a separate podcast with stuff we didn’t get to on the show, stuff we couldn’t talk about on the air, etc.  It’s us along with our new producer Jeetz without music or commercials.

We will be podcasting the actual radio show in the future but we’re launching slowly so it would be somewhat limited if we put the whole thing up now.

You can get the Secret Show podcasts here.  Click on each show and you can play it right in your browser. You can also subscribe through iTunes or any other podcast software or app using this link:

Let me know if you have any questions!


Secret Show #3

The plan is to record an additional podcast at the end of our show each day (assuming people listen to it).  It will cover things we didn’t get to on the air, things we can’t talk about on the radio for whatever reason, and more.

Today we discussed how the first on-air show went, Jeetz talked about whether or not Seahawk Richard Sherman trash-talked him when they met, and Candy found out a company is trying to copyright her name? Also Potter shares why his 3yo Tiny Human is NOT the reason he’s getting sick.


Secret Show #2

The plan is to record an additional podcast at the end of our show each day (assuming people listen to it).  It will cover things we didn’t get to on the air, things we can’t talk about on the radio for whatever reason, and more.

On Friday we recorded another one just to get used to using the new studio.  Check it out here…If you wanna. We also included reactions for both if the Seahawks lost and if they won (which we now know they did!)


Secret Show #1

The plan is to record an additional podcast at the end of our show each day (assuming people listen to it).  It will cover things we didn’t get to on the air, things we can’t talk about on the radio for whatever reason, and more.

Yesterday we recorded one just to get used to using the new studio.  Check it out here…If you wanna.  (Nice hard sell there huh?)


Thank You Madison and The Q106 Radio Family

Two years ago this month we launched “Candy + Potter Mornings” on Today’s Q106 with a lot of self doubt.

Anytime you’re facing a new audience you never know how you’ll be received. But we used the public speaking trick and pretended everyone was naked (and some of you probably were).  We were met with some expectant hesitation from listeners, but generally we couldn’t have had a much better welcome.  So thank you.

THANK YOU for hanging out with us at our Sweet Suite Parties, the Summer Kickoff Cruises, and the 5:01 Escape Parties.

THANK YOU for joining us on the Hole-in-the-Wall Tour.

THANK YOU for joining our No Shave ‘Til 60 Protest even if your spouses didn’t want you to.

THANK YOU for helping us raise a ton of money for American Family Children’s Hospital.

THANK YOU for listening so we can do this for a living.

Thanks to Jackson, Fletcher Keyes, Super Dave, Justin Brown, Ashley Kix, Mark Van Allan, and the rest of the amazing staff for the last 2 years.  We’re excited to be headed home to Seattle but will take many great memories from our time here.

The new morning show will be starting in a couple weeks – I hope you’ll give them the same welcome you gave us.

If you’d like to keep in touch, please join us on Facebook here, and subscribe to this blog – We’ll post info soon about how you can stream or podcast the show if you’re interested.


Leaving Madison

DSC_7353

Dear Q106 Radio Family,

Let’s do this like a band-aid.  With very mixed-emotions we have decided to leave Today’s Q106.

We love Madison and the people so this was a tough decision we didn’t expect to be making.  Believe me, we wouldn’t have bought a new house 7 months ago if we thought we might be leaving!

We have been offered a great job in Seattle, our hometown where most of our family lives.  The opportunity to raise our now 2 kids around grandparents, aunts, and uncles was something we couldn’t pass up.

The last 2 years have been amazing. I know we are giving up a lot of great things, from a great company in Midwest Family Broadcasting to an incredible city in Madison.  The Hole-in-the-Wall Tour, the American Family Children’s Hospital Radiothon, and our Summer Kickoff Cruises will always be some of my favorite memories.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Today’s Q106 is currently searching for a new morning show which we’re sure will fit their high standards for your entertainment. Jackson has recently been promoted to being a full time employee and is expected to remain on the morning show.  I’m gonna miss seeing him every day, but I’m glad the new morning show will be in his good, knuckle-tattooed hands…

Our last day on the air will be January 8th.  Then we’ll be joining The New Hot 103.7 in Seattle. If you’re interested you can get their App here.

We’d love to stay in touch with anyone who’s interested!  Hit us up via any or all of the methods below!

Also feel free to send questions if you have any – We don’t have anything to hide.

NOT SURE IF ANYONE WILL MISS US, BUT I KNOW WE’LL MISS LOTS OF PEOPLE

Thank you for listening,

Candy + Potter

Note from Candy:  This sucks, I know. (What more can you say when someone ups and changes your morning routine on you? I get it.) I love Madison and will continue to be a driving tourism force for South Central Wisconsin no matter where I am. I wish there was a scandal to report to make this news more salacious…you can tell people “Candy was fed up with Potter’s daily sexual harassment.” We’re married, so that’s funny…Sorry, I joke when I’m sad.
