Craig Matthews

I am a Western New York native, born and raised in West Seneca and now living with my wife Maribeth, who is an R.N., on our 65-acre farm in Marilla. We do not have children but plenty of "kids" -- our cats, dog and horses. I have worked in Buffalo radio since 1975 and at Townsquare since 2001. Presently, I work just weekends and some fill-in on-air work. My main career is in law enforcement; I'm a mounted lieutenant, chaplain and instructor for the Erie County Sheriff's Office. And, yes, I am the guy famous for the signature radio sign-off, "God bless you, God bless America, never say never!"

So What’s YOUR Sign?

No, I am not talking about the old pick up line. I am remembering the old 70's pop tune called "Signs" from the Five Man Electrical Band.

                                         "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign,
                                   Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind,
                                 Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?"

I think signs are important. They give us a message. They warn us, remind us...personally, I like this one. Not quite sure where it's located, but kinda doubt it's in New York State (someone would find it offensive). Nice reminder though as we get ready for the long holiday weekend.

A Tribute To Law Enforcement

As many of you know, besides my radio career, I proudly work  in law enforcement as a Lieutenant and an Instructor with the Erie County Sheriff's Office Mounted Unit.  I also serve as a liaison Chaplain. 
I am honored to tell you that this week coming up marks National Police Week. Did you know on average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 53 hours?

For My Mom, Your Mom…An I.O.U.

Mother's Day is Sunday. This will be the sixth Mother's Day without my Mom and twelve years for my wife Maribeth's Mother. No doubt tears will be shed when we visit their graves...much like the tears that are welling up in our eyes as we listen to the late Jimmy Dean Mother's Day classic called, "I.O.U."

Tribute to NYS Trooper Dobson [VIDEO]

The other day while traveling down the 400 (East Aurora Expressway) I observed a New York State Trooper car with it's lights flashing having just pulled over a motorist. I was so pleasantly surprised to see all the vehicles in front of me slow down and immediately pull over in to the other lane as is required by law and of course is just plain common sense.
