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!"

WNY Horse Council Invites You To Go For A Ride!

As many of you know, in addition to my part-time on-air work here at Townsquare Media, I am also a proud member of the Erie County Sheriff's Office Mounted Reserve Unit. I joined back in 1996 and am presently a Lieutenant, Instructor and Chaplain. Our unit suffered a huge loss back in July when a freak malfunction caused our Captain's horse trailer to become disconnected from his vehicle. His horse, "Buffalo Joe", was killed instantly. (Incidentally, that trailer was only 8 months old...the investigation of the accident is continuing.) The outpouring of sympathy and concern from the community has been overwhelming! From Russ Salavatore purchasing a new horse, "R.J", for our division...to the not-for-profit Western New York Chapter of the New York State Horse Council's generosity.

Andy Griffith Remembered [VIDEO]

My July 4th holiday is a little bit sadder this year. We lost an American original. The much loved Andy Griffith died yesterday morning. He was 86. Yes it's true, he lived a good and long life, yet there are certain folks who are just never supposed to leave us. He was one of them.

A Redneck Pool Heater! [VIDEO]

Earlier this year my wife said we need to get a pool heater. Though our pool gets a lot of sun and we use a solar cover, solar pills and the black solar mat, my wife would like our pool to be even warmer. Personally, I don't mind 75 degrees. She, on the other hand would like it closer to 90! So rather than spend a lot of money on a heater and of course the gas we would use I decided to check on line to see what other folks do.
