Zach’s Top 5 Favortie Songs About States [MUSIC]

As you listen to country music on The Best and Most Country Big Frog 104, it's impossible not to hear a song about a state. So, as I was listening to a few songs, I thought it would be fun to make note of songs that mention states and make a list of my favorites. And, while doing this, purely by accident, three out of the five songs

New Website Showcases Utica’s Beauty

Recently, USA Today took America on a photo tour of Utica titled "Tough times in Utica". It depicted Utica in an apparent state of disrepair highlighting graffiti and old buildings--the pictures were also taken on a cloudy day nonetheless. The photos were not only seen by USA Today readers, but also readers of the Albany Times-Union saw the photos with the title "Utica struggles". Now, a few days after those photos were published, a new website has emerged to not show the "though times" in Utica, but rather, it embraces the beauty Utica has to offer.

Today is Frog Jumping Day [VIDEO]

First, let me start out by saying Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. Yes, today is Mother's Day, but it's also another day for celebration--it's Frog Jumping Day. As I write this, I think what a fitting holiday for the one and only Big Frog 104. Now, I couldn't find much on how to properly celebrate this holiday, so, I say, celebrate by listening to the Best and Most Country Big Frog 104!

Today: Celebrate with a Limerick

Today is Limerick Day. Yes, a day to celebrate the form of poetry with a very distinct rhyming scheme. A limerick follows this pattern: AABBA. Meaning, the last words of lines one, two and five have to rhyme and the last words in lines three and four have to rhyme. So, to test out my poetry skills, I have decided to celebrate today by writing a limerick about Utica.
