The Onion Is Helping Salt Lake City with Tourism

The Onion has taken up the task of helping our fair capital city market our tourism and show off our valley has to offer. Reminding visitors they can, "experience the city on your terms" along with reminding anyone they can leave "anytime." 

The kindly folks at The Onion have even produced this well-shot and thoughtful video that may very well start running on local network affiliates some time this Fall.

What do you think of the new campaign?

Check out the video and enjoy the full story here.

To be honest, we are rather surprised that they didn't pull this song for the soundtrack. Hell, it even features Dexter Holland from The Offspring who just happen to be coming to town later this month.

Seven Lessons From Interning At X96 Richie T |

Seven Lessons From Interning At X96

Intern Zach here. Today marks my last day as an intern for X96 and the Radio From Hell program. Before I go, I thought I’d like to share with you some lessons I have learned from my experiences at X96

1. The meaning of “sleep-deprived” Getting up at the unholy hour of four AM everyday has taught me to never take sleep for granted. Not even one hour. Here’s an idea of what I look like right now:

2. Endless experience of audio editing I’ve stared at computer screens like this for longer than I can remember:

3. You will get headphone hair… you’ll just have to deal with it It doesn’t matter how many hours you spend on doing your hair, it will always end up looking like this:

Instagram.com

4. "Grammar Nazis" are everywhere

All over the chatroom, all over Facebook, EVERYWHERE. This has helped me become more self-aware of my writing and grammar. Or maybe it has made me become more paranoid. I can't tell.

5. Running remote events is kinda like babysitting You have to watch over expensive items, you explain the same things over and over, and you give away as much candy and stickers as you can in order to make someone happy

 

I FEEL YOU, FRANK!

However, I did get to go see a lot of cool events like the Reggae Rise Up Festival, RSL games, and Vans Warped Tour for free!

6. You never know who you might meet

 

I got to hang out with the guitarists of Anberlin, Christian McAlhaney and Joseph Milligan (left), and the vocalist/bassist, Roger Lima, of Less Than Jake (right). Anyone could stop by the studio at any given day.

ANYONE

 

npr.org

Okay, that was NPR. But I would freak out if the cookie monster made an apperance at X96. I would probably take his cookies. Maybe just one. 7. Anyone can be a writer or a journalist.  I never thought of myself as a writer. I’m just a guy who likes to talk about music. However, I realized that most people who work here at X96, and in music journalism, fall under the same category. Thanks to my time at X96, my writing has been viewed and opened up to a much broader audience.

         

Going back to school like...

All in all, my experience at X96 was rewarding. I lost a lot of sleep, got a lot of free food and donuts, saw a few concerts for free, met some of my favorite bands, and had a lot of laughs along the way. Sure, sometimes Kerry, Bill, & Gina and everyone else might make you feel like this sometimes:

But, your overall experience here will leave you feeling like this:

… And who knows where you’ll go from there. If you’d like an internship experience similar to mine, email Richie@x96.com

Radio From Hell Interview w/Charles Halford Richie T |

Radio From Hell Interview w/Charles Halford

This morning, Radio From Hell spoke with actor and Salt Lake City local, Charles Halford. Topics of conversation included: Charles' upbringing in Utah, why he chose to pursue acting, his run-in with Richard Simmons, his current project "Constantine" and much more! Listen here

Charles Halford on why he chose acting:

“I don’t know if I had one [a plan]. I was the youngest of four… I wasn’t allowed to take drama until the eighth grade… I was failing a lot of classes for the same reasons I got an A in drama, I was acting out. I got an A [in Drama class] for doing the same things that I was getting into trouble for in my other classes. This gave me somewhere to put my energy and it gave me direction.”

On "Constantine":

“Constantine the show, not unlike the Keanu Reeves movie, is based on the Hellblazer comics… in the DC universe. I play a character, Chas, which is essentially John Constantine’s best friend, his wingman, his sidekick. And if anyone is familiar, John has really bad luck with keeping his friends alive. So, Chas is his long, surviving friend and we do a lot of demon fighting… but John serves the higher calling, which means anyone between him and his purpose can be laid to waste for the greater good.”
