Confidence is key in life!

What’s something that INSTANTLY makes you more confident? For me, I feel more confident with a new haircut, a new pearl snap shirt, and some great tunes! According to a new survey, the top answer for guys was . . . “A SUNNY DAY”.  Followed by a clean shave.

For women it’s a new HAIRCUT, and a sunny day came in second.  So apparently nice weather boosts our confidence?  Which makes sense.  But it’s probably skewed here because they did the survey in the UK . . . where obviously the weather ISN’T sunny.

Anyway, here are the top ten things that instantly make WOMEN more confident.

1.  A new haircut . . . unless of course it’s TERRIBLE.

2.  A sunny day.

3.  Walking in heels.

4.  Learning a new skill.

5.  Booking a vacation.

6.  Shaved legs.

7.  Lipstick.

8.  Having a tan.

9.  Wearing a little black dress.

10.  Designer perfume.


Now here are the ten things that instantly make MEN more confident.

1.  A sunny day.

2.  A fresh shave.

3.  A new suit.

4.  Brushing your teeth.

5.  Wearing aftershave.

6.  Being praised at work.

7.  A new haircut.

8.  Sleeping in fresh sheets . . . which is RARE for a lot of guys.

9. Learning a new skill.

10.  Asking someone on a date, and getting a “yes”.  Being asked out was number 12 for women.


What makes you more confident? Check out the full list for both men and women HERE.

Michelle Wie knows how to party!

So golfer Michelle Wie won her first major, the US Open, this past weekend. She celebrated like most other 24 year olds would. Had some adult beverages and danced! Now some people are looking down on her because those adult beverages were being drank out of her trophy and her dancing was twerking on the wall.

I mean seriously? People are getting upset about this? Ludicrous! Hockey players do God knows what on their day with the Stanley Cup, but some of the golf snobs are saying she has taken her antics a little too far. What do you think?

I say get it girl! Heck, if I won a trophy, you better EXPECT me to post pictures of me partying hardcore. Matter of fact, you are all invited to Northgate when I do and can drink out of my trophy!

DC finally taking a cue from Marvel?

As a kid, I always dreamt of a movie with Spider-Man and the X-Men battling some villain. Well that dream hasn’t quite come true, but the next best thing has, with Marvel putting out their Avengers movies. For years, Marvel has been on point with their movies. From Iron Man, Thor, and especially the latest Captain America movie.

As much of a Marvel nerd as I am, I do like DC Comics too. Many fans have been waiting for a larger DC Movie universe to pop up for the last few years. As good as the latest Batman movies were, fans were left disappointed in getting no real reference to any of the other DC entities.

Well that’s all about to change. DC recently announced that they will be doing a Batman/Superman movie in 2016 and it looks like the have an ambitious schedule of flicks to come out after that. STORY HERE

Looks like we as comic movie fans can look forward to the following:

  • May 2016 – Batman v Superman
  • July 2016 – Shazam
  • Christmas 2016 – Sandman
  • May 2017 – Justice League<
  • July 2017 – Wonder Woman
  • Christmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
  • May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

So, what do ya think?

Game of Thrones New Orleans style!

Just what Game of Thrones needed, a JAZZ RENDITION of their theme song!

WHAT?! ha, I love this! I love a good jazz band from time to time and throwing in some Game of Thrones music is just greatness!

Thinking about hanging out with the characters of GoT at Mardi Gras isn’t as fun though. Really the only ones I’d wanna go party with is Tyrion and Bronn. Most everyone else would be too moody, broody, or whiny to take to New Orleans for a week of debauchery. That’s why Tyrion and Bronn are the only ones that make sense! Most of Tyrions life has been like Mardi Gras anyway and Bronn can not only cut back and have a great time, but be the resident butt kicker if need be!

Adam Drake

Monday-Friday: 6p-10p

Howdy! Yes, another Adam joining in the Candy 95 craziness. I couldn’t be more excited to be here. Some people in town might recognize me as I’ve worked at a few other stations in the market, including a few month stop at Candy back in 2010. You might also realize that most of my time in radio has been spent doing country music. I do love me some honky-tonking country, but have a varied taste. Don’t believe me, just challenge me in SongPop and find out for yourself!

I’m a bit of a smart aleck with strong opinions, but also pride myself on being a pretty alright guy. Most of my time is spent with my wife and amazing son. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’ll no doubt see your fair share of pics of him.

If I can’t go to a place wearing boots and jeans, I probably don’t wanna be there in the first place.
