New Years Eve 2023 Are You Ready? – Screamin Scott
Here we go to end another year together! Let’s just say this year was a bit of a challenge compared to other years. Still coming back from the COVID-19 era, and we’re still learning to get back to living again. Today, I made a pop-tart in the toaster right off the bat, it shot out of the toaster onto the floor. I’m ready for a new year of smiles and better times. I found some stats on everything around New Year’s Eve you might find interesting!
We’ll start with this one: 80 million people will travel this weekend. Heads up Southwest Airlines… 70% of people on average will spend 50 dollars or more on food and drink. 59% will spend the night celebrating with friends and family. 52% will ring in the New year at home. 12% (people who are like me and are accident prone) will spend the night in the emergency room due to alcohol or drug-related injuries. Less than 1% are injured by a champagne cork. Please don’t drink and drive as over 40,000 accidents happen on NYE weekend. 61% will not bother making a New Year’s resolution, and it takes on average only 36 days after January to mess up your resolution.
I’m thankful for everything I have experienced over this past year. Thanks to my bosses Jade Springart and Scott Jameson. Anne Erikson, and the I.T. crew for everything including their patience with me. All of my co-workers, Dave & Chuck the Freak, Lisa, James, Andy, Al Beck, Jason, Meltdown, Chuck Bean, Aimee, Jonel and Steve Black for keeping my smile going. William Spurrier and Morgan Holsworth for the funny videos we make. Everyone upstairs at work who I don’t get to see very often, but I will work on that this year. Sherri Powers and the engineering staff for keeping me on the air. To Kathy Flesher for being there since radio began. Lauren Conn for everything. Jennifer Williams for getting me up to speed. Mac Edwards for being not only my GM but a wonderful friend. To the entire staff at Beasley Media, I give thanks.
To the best cheese to please with my band Chit! Happy 10 years of rock and debauchery. To my Screamin’ Angels charity crew, let’s do it again. And to my wife, all my friends, and family, here’s to a great year ahead for 2023. Thank you!
