Day 212: Gave A Radio Shout Out

Have you ever loved someone so much that you wanted to shout it from the rooftops?  That is how I feel about my wife.  Well, I have gone up to the roof of my building before to yell to the world how much I loved her just so you know, it isn't that easy.  My building isn't even that tall, but not a single person on the street below could hear me.  I even followed up by yelling directly at passersby to grab their attention, but alas, it was a miserable failure.  I needed to think of a way to let the world (or at least the greater Chicagoland area) know just how much my wife means to me, but how would I do it?  That is when an idea struck me.  Back in February, I was invited to go join Brotha Fred and Angi Taylor on their morning show (Chicago's greatest and most listened to) on Kiss 103.5.  I decided I would reach back out to them to see if it was possible for me to use the morning show as a forum to let as many people as possible know just how much I love my wife.  They were more than happy to do it, thus reinforcing how awesome I already thought they were.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I called in to Brotha Fred's Neighborhood and gave a radio shout out to declare my love for Lindsey.  Fred followed it up with a song dedication of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up," and Day 2 of Pookie's Acts of Kindness was in the book.  I once again want to thank Fred and Angi not just for having me on, but also for their support in getting the word out for 366 Random Acts.


  1. It's because of this radio shout out, I'm now following your blog. Such a cool thing to do!
