Rudy Fernandez

I love people and I love what I do. Whether I am at a concert, a local fundraiser or a 'live on location' broadcast I get to meet listeners. I am also a huge music fan and I am crazy about the new music as well as the old classics. One of the blessings of the morning show is talking to you and learning the needs of our community. When I'm not at the radio station, I enjoy spending my free time with my beautiful wife, my five wonderful daughters and three awesome sons. I've been a Boy Scout all my life, therefore I believe we all need to spend more time in the great outdoors camping and enjoying quality time together. Mostly though, I am the happiest when I'm on the radio.

Watch a Trespassing Hunter Get Blasted With Paint When He Sets Off a Booby Trap

A trespassing hunter gets blasted with paint when he sets off a booby trap intended for trespassers. First off, I believe he got what he deserved. Secondly, it was only paint and it didn't kill him but I will admit I couldn't stop laughing. Beware the trespasser starts swearing, I'd be swearing too if that had been me, but I know better. Check it out.

Armored Up SUV’s for 2014 From Dartz and Mercedes-Benz Look Like Military Vehicles

I believe both Latvia's Dartz Motorz and Germany's Mercedes-Benz are determined to change the way we look at SUV's. Mercedes-Benz recently released their G63 AMG 6x6 armored-up SUV (inspired by the MRAP as seen in the movie Die Hard 5).  This vehicle looks like a six-wheeled militarized Humvee on steroids and can take on small arms fire and IED's. Both companies claim their 11 thousand plus pound vehicles can keep their passengers safe. The price tag for feeling safe is rumored to be around 3.3 million dollars for the newest model. Check out the videos.

Guys Shotgun Goes Off in This Funny Video of “How Not To Handle a Shotgun”

While I find this video funny I feel inclined to remind everyone to treat every firearm as if it is loaded and keep your fingers off the trigger at all times. To learn more about firearm safety visit the National Shooting Sports Foundation's website.  That said, it's like watching a train wreck about to happen and there's nothing you can do to stop it. All I could do was squirm until the big moment. Check it out.

Townsquare Media Abilene Shares What’s in Their Workplace Survival Kits

Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm always carrying some survival stuff on me at all times. So during our weekly meeting yesterday, the topic of a 'workplace survival kit' came up and what one might have in their workplace survival kit. I thought that a video inventory of what all was in mine would be cool, then I asked my co-workers about theirs. It's only about ten minutes, but it's well worth watching to see what your kit might be missing. Check it out, tell me what's missing.
