Rick Andrews

Hey there, Rick Andrews here. I thought I would give you a little background about me. I was born and raised in Bangor, Maine and was bitten by the radio "bug" since the age of 7. By the time I was 14 years old I got my dream job and "cracked the mic" for the first time and have never looked back. My career has taken me from Maine, New York, California and New Mexico. Rick has been described as a "walking encyclopedia" of music info and trivia. When not on the air at Mix 94.1, I enjoy reading entertainment Biographies, Sci-Fi and management books. I also enjoy sketching, painting, drawing and practicing card & coin magic. You usually can find me on the air Monday through Friday from 3pm-7pm.

Movie Trivia: The Wizard Of Oz [VIDEO]

It's hard to believe that 'The Wizard of Oz,' starring Judy Garland is currently celebrating it's 75th Anniversary.

I was sitting here this morning thinking 'where has this year gone.'

It's hard to believe that in seven weeks that we will be getting ready to ring in the new year.

For better of worse, Thanksgiving not only marks the day that we sit down with family and friends, carve the turkey and munch on candy yams, but it's also the day that  stores will be opening early to kick off the holiday rush. Some of the those store will open up at 6pm on Thanksgiving night.

Below you will find links to some of the Black Friday ads for 2013.

Let's be honest, no matter what, the holidays can be a very stressful time on any given good day. There's the prepping of food, coordinating family members who may be coming in from out of town, the hustle and bustle of fighting the crowds as you look for that perfect gift for a loved one.

The Mischievous Adventures Of Merry: The Elf On A Shelf [PHOTOS]

Excuse this proud Father as I brag on my eldest Daughter for a moment.

Tabitha is one of the most talented and creative people I know and as much as I would like to take a little bit a credit for that talent I have to admit that it all comes from her Momma.

My Backstage Experience At ‘The Red Tour’ Concert With Taylor Swift [VIDEO]

I had the chance last week to head to Tulsa, OK to see Taylor Swift on 'The Red Tour,' and I have to tell you it was amazing.

I've liked most of Taylor's songs, but decided that I really wanted to see what she was like live. I was not disappointed.

One of the perks of being in radio is that I have opportunities, from time to time, to go backstage and meet a performer. Luckily, this was one of those times.

4 Easy Card Trick Decks For A Budding Young Magician [VIDEOS]

Recently a friend of mine told me that his granddaughter was getting interested in magic.

He asked if I knew of any tricks that were available for a young budding new magician.

Since magic is one of my hobbies, I knew a pretty good amount of some of the self-working tricks and a few that need minimal setup.

The cool thing is that tricks I'll mention are inexpensive and almost anyone can perform them. Magic can also help kiddos get over shyness, make new friends, help with hand coordination and build confidence, so that's an added bonus.

Here a four that you can check out to get your budding magician on the road to magic.
