Ever since I moved to the Seattle area back in December of 2000, and checked out the local radio, I have been a fan of BJ Shea. His show - The BJ Shea Morning Experience on 99.9 KISW, the ROCK of Seattle - is the number one morning show in the Pacific Northwest.
BJ has been in Seattle for ten years now, and he and his crew threw a party at the Snoqualmie Casino to celebrate with friends and listeners. Dian and I had to check it out...
The Setting: Snoqualmie Casino Ballroom in Snoqualmie, Washington.
Getting ready for the party
Meeting The Rev (aka The Reverend En Fuego). His shirt cracked me up. It showed a midevil knight flipping someone off with the text, "Fuck Ye!", above.
With STP (aka Steve The Producer), a truly great guy.
With Double R
Dian with Topshelf and 'Rock Girl' Katie
Bullshittin' with Toppy.
He was a really cool guy.
He received a gift from one of the listeners: Two copies of Mario Kart Wii. He had only wanted the two steering wheels for the game (one comes with each copy). So upon learning that we had also just bought a Wii, he made us a deal. He gave us one of the games and told us to go out and buy another steering wheel. He would do the same, and then we'd both have the game and two steering wheels. How awesome is that?!
Meeting one of my heroes, BJ Shea
He was one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.
Me, Toppy, Dian and Jared (a former member of the show)
Dian and I had a total blast. Not only did we get to hang out with the guys and meet them all, we also got to check out the fairly new Snoqualmie Casino, which we had never been to. We met some cool people, and even took home a free copy of Mario Kart Wii thanks to Toppy!
The BJ Morning Experience. A group of really great guys.
