When I worked as a newspaper photo engraver in the only job I ever had, many years ago, I’d get the train home to Pukerua Bay where I was staying with my parents. An hour ride, 16 stops, and almost always, I’d have automatic wake-up, seconds before we pulled into my station.

Antony Starr

What do you mean you have my children at the police station? Why are my kids at the police station?
O. J. Simpson
There should be a whole book written about that one word: country. What does that mean, country? It’s such a huge umbrella. I would hope that what makes it country is that it all starts with a song. The story being told in three and a half minutes that is not being told on another station.

I think for me, personally, I’m a guy who has watched ESPN ever since I’ve been growing up. You turn it on, and it’s one of the first stories – the Blackhawks and hockey, which you don’t really see on that station. That’s cool to see.

Channing Pollock
