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.

You may see people with smudges on their forehead today. This is a heavily concentrated Catholic area, so it’s pretty common to see it.

Today is Ash Wednesday – the beginning of Lent – a period of 40 days of penance, reflection and abstinence, not including Sundays, leading up to Easter.

Today Is National Anthem Day

Most people have a general idea of the inspiration behind "The Star-Spangled Banner". After a long overnight attack in August of 1814, the following morning the American flag was still flying over Fort McHenry, which guarded the harbor and city of Baltimore. The flag was battered and torn, but it was still flying.

What You Didn’t Know About George Washington

We always recognize George Washington’s birthday as February 22nd, but he was actually born on February 11th, 1731. The confusion is because the Julian Calendar was being used at the time he was born.  When Great Britain and the colonies went to the Gregorian Calendar in 1752 with the new year starting on January 1st, his birthdate was adjusted.

A Man In A Can Shot Into Space

For a lot of people it’s ancient history because they weren’t even born yet. But many still remember John Glenn’s historic ride in a space capsule called “Friendship 7” that was only 6-feet wide and 9 ½ feet tall. It sent the future Ohio Senator 100 miles into space making him the first American to orbit the earth.

You gotta remember there were a lot of questions back then. What would the effect of weightlessness be? Did we come up with the best design?
