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.

Sign Me Up Now For The Sequel To “To Kill A Mockingbird”

Wow!  I'm absolutely fascinated and excited to learn there's a sequel to the Harper Lee novel "To Kill A Mockingbird".  It's my favorite book and movie.  The 1962 movie starring Gregory Peck in the role of Atticus Finch won three Academy Awards including a Best Actor Oscar for Peck.  It was long thought that the Pulitzer Prize winning novel was the only one Lee ever wrote until just recently when it was revealed there is a follow up.

Buffalo Sabres Losing Streak Is Over

The Buffalo Sabres have become a punch line around the NHL.  For one night at least their comedy show finally came to an end in Montreal.  After 14 straight losses the Sabres held on for a 3-2 win against the Canadiens with Brian Gionta scoring what turned out to be the winning goal against his former team.

For the sixth straight game the Sabres scored the opening goal of the game and built a 3-1 lead, but this time they were actually able to convert that early lead into a win.

Lockport Mentioned On Criminal Minds

You just never know what you're going to learn.  I was watching Wednesday's episode of Criminal Minds and toward the end of the show they mentioned Lockport, NY.  Two agents were reminiscing about a time in "upstate New York"....."Lockport where the only time it doesn't snow is the 4th of July." They also mentioned sledding down "rattlesnake hill".  I'd never heard of rattlesnake hill.
