Dale Mussen

I've been doing this radio thing for over 35 years now. I've been a part of the Breakfast Club morning show since 1986. Since I was a kid, I've loved to read. I read the newspaper each day nearly cover to cover – usually not the classifieds though. I get a lot of ideas for my Daily Data segment just by reading the paper. I’m a lifelong Bills and Sabres fan, and I've been a regular in the press box of both teams since 1979 -- but I'm still waiting for one of them to win a championship! Four cracks at it for the Bills and two for the Sabres, and they came up short. I was born and raised in the Buffalo area. I went to school at Niagara University, and since Clay went to Canisius, we get to raz each other twice each year when the Eagles and Griffs meet to play basketball. I have a large collection of records. I'm one of the few that still has the old vinyl, including a lot of old 45s in their original sleeves. Some kids probably have no idea what I'm talking about at this point. My favorite things to do in my spare time are bike riding and fixing things around the house, and each fall, I officiate high school football games.

45 Years Later Earth Day Was Worth It

Today is the 45th annual Earth Day. The first one was April 22nd, 1970 at a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught fire.

In 1963, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson began to worry about our planet – the water and air was being polluted. Plants and animals were dying and he wondered why more people weren't trying to solve these problems. It was talked about in Congress. The president made speeches, but not enough people were working on solutions.

Late Goal Sinks Buffalo Sabres

You just know it's coming.  Even on a night when they give a full effort during this season to forget, the Buffalo Sabres are going to give up a key goal that loses another game.  The Sabres played the New York Rangers eyeball to eyeball for 58 minutes Thursday night in New York but a bad line change led to the Rangers' best chance of the night and they made it count to defeat the Sabres 2-1.
