Hi! I’m Sarah from Melbourne, Florida. I like to spend my time traveling
with my friends, going to the beach, working out, and reading. I am currently
a member of Kappa Delta at University of Central Florida and plan
to go to law school once I graduate. I am so thankful to be recognized as
the model of the month!

Behind the Mic: Riggs
95.7 the Hog, Daytona Beach
On our daily Morning HOG radio show, we are
constantly challenged by the bosses to talk
about what is relatable to YOU, the listener.
And short of coming to your house or grabbing
a beer and shooting the shit, there’s no exact
science to knowing what that relatable radio
content really is. So we at The Morning HOG /
95.7 The HOG try to connect with our audience
through many different avenues. There is extensive
research, data collection, and a tremendous
amount of ratings minutiae that I won’t bore
you with that leads us to knowing what may
work on the air. But obviously this comes with
some bad reads and failed attempts. I decided
to reveal some of the segment ideas we have
tried and for whatever reason, they just didn’t
The 8 o’clock Donut Toss - This plan involved
flinging Krispy Kremes out of our 3rd story
studio window toward cars racing down International
Speedway Boulevard. Passersby would
get to keep the donut that landed on or in their
car and redeem it for a clean one at participating
locations. The idea failed for several reasons,
including the lack of openable windows
and ants … lots of ants. Also, police frown upon
donut-related traffic snarls.
Captive Date - Lots of radio shows across the
country have attempted this rather innocent
idea where 2 callers are connected and sent on
a date… to our storage room, where they are
“sequestered” for 24 hours and are kept awake
during their date by a series of air horn blasts
every half hour. While our first couple did have
an emotional connection, we had to discontinue
the segment after our lawyers threw around
words like “kidnapping” and “false imprisonment”.
- Tell Off My Boss - Another great idea taken
down by unfortunate circumstances. I mean,
who hasn’t wanted to speak freely to their boss,
right? Well we solicited callers who wanted to
tell off their boss and had Guy do it for them.
This was hilarious radio until we found out one
“boss” was the Sheriff. Guy apologized, but the
damage was done. We made a donation and all
is well now.
- Find The Mustard - How frustrating is it when
you are dining and can’t find the condiments?
We know, VERY. So we sent Intern Steve to
a local eatery, mic’d him up, and had him announce
that he had taken all the mustard and
that whoever finds it first gets a limited edition
Morning HOG Mustard Bottle, numbered and
signed by Riggs and Guy. There were scuffles
and the threat of a man promising to “beat the
Grey Poupon out of him”, plus the novelty of a
unique morning show collectible was not as big
of a draw as we thought. We got the last laugh,
though, as the mustard was in Steve’s speedo
the entire time!
- RIGGS’ Rapid Paternity Test - Look, there’s
clearly still an audience for this stuff ‘cuz Maury
Povich still has a show, right? I did a lot of Internet
research and realized that helping people
find answers doesn’t have to take so long, so I
spent a substantial amount of slush fund cash
on the chemicals and equipment. Listeners
dropped their swabbed DNA in our radio station’s
mailbox and we would do a weekly test
and announce the results. While the segment
was time-efficient for the show, it proved scientifically
inaccurate and we ruined a lot of lives.
- Request A Sound - We play plenty of music
but not nearly enough sound effects. So this
idea involved listener requests for their favorite
sounds. It went smoothly for a couple weeks
but our research showed after week 3 it was
87% fart sounds and a large jump in requests for
silence. Message received, segment suspended.
- The Morning HOG Birthday Piñata - This involved
a monthly drawing from our listener
database for a special delivery of the birthday
piñata. We stuffed the thing with 95.7 The HOG
t-shirts, stickers, candy, cash, and some beverages
from our Brew Review.
But paper mache is messy and difficult to get
dried and hardened, so the weight of the prizes
frequently broke through the HOG piñata
and turned the winner’s birthday into a mess of
mopping and apologies.
- What Letter Is In Intern Steve’s Fanny Pack? -
This segment combines listeners love for guessing
the alphabet incrementally and Steve’s love
of his fanny pack. Seems like a win-win, but
there’s always one turd in the punch bowl who
wants to argue that the Greek alphabet is alive
and well… we may have to re-tool and bring this
show sizzler back into rotation. Stay tuned.
- Velvet or Velour - We put Intern Steve on the
corner of ISB and Nova Road in a tank top and
kilt then had people reach under and determine
if he was wearing velvet or velour trunk briefs.
Again, the sensitive times we currently work in
left this segment in the dust as several contestant
complaints read “I’ll never be clean again”
and “What’s wrong with him?”.
Riggs & Guy Pudding Bus - This plan was
doomed from the start. Take a tour bus, a keg
of Lagunitas, lots of metal CDs, dancers, Madden
2019, inversion tables and a large inflatable
pool full of vanilla pudding and you have the
makings of one hell of a party. Then you hear
what you didn’t want to hear…
“Shit, we forgot the waivers”. Paperwork always
before pudding, so the bus never left the parking
lot. But don’t give up on this one either…
we know a guy.
If any of those happen to catch your attention
or if you have something you think we should
try on-air, swing by 957thehog.com and drop
a note in The Morning HOG Listener Suggestion
Box. We will be selecting some of your
ideas each Monday and test driving them on
the show. As always, reach out at 957thehog
on Facebook and Instagram and hit the studio
hotline at 386-866-0957.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Be a part of it!

10. Which album was the band’s bestselling
The question of the day seems to be, where to go to eat, whether they’re
open, whether they have curbside service and whether they deliver.
There are so many things that are different now that we are dealing with
Covid-19. Believe it or not, several venues have gone out of their way to
make it easier to get food during these difficult times.
One of these places, Prima Pizza Cucina in New Smyrna Beach, indicates
their business has been skyrocketing ever since the start of the Coronavirus.
In speaking with one of the restaurant workers at Prima, he mentioned
that the reason business is bigger than ever is the fact that they
have limited seating and to go orders come in faster than having to turn
One thing is for sure, they don’t slouch when putting to go orders together.
I’ve had their dine in food several times and there’s no doubting
the consistency in the taste and quality. On my first take-out visit, at the
recommendation of a friend, I decided to try the meatballs and ricotta. He
was absolutely correct - these were some of the best meatballs I’ve ever
had. They were served with garlic bread and a rich and tangy sauce - absolutely
perfect, and left me full for the night.
On my second take-out visit, I went with the vodka pie pizza and this
experience was almost better than the first. It was cooked to perfection,
which is not always easy to find when getting a pizza to go. They definitely
pulled it off.
While the atmosphere isn’t quite as fun at home as it is going to a place
like Prima Pizza, there’s no doubt in my mind that the food experience is
almost the same, which isn’t the case for all of the restaurants in the area.
In writing this, I couldn’t help but pull up the menu and I think tonight will
be the third time in the last month that I’ll get a to go order; the baked
sausage and peppers just seem to be calling my name.
Make sure to check out Prima the next time you’re in New Smyrna Beach.
As usual, it will be packed (as much as is allowed by law, anyway). But you
can always count on the same quality when you get it to go.
