I was going the morning show, as per usual. We were most likely chatting about something completely absurd and off topic when I received a message from an old friend.

Her name is Heather Turcotte and she is a kick-ass bus driver for Greene Central School, Bus #37. She told me that when she's transporting them to school, they listen to our show and are super-fans. She went onto say that when we play songs they like, they all dance and sing out loud.

Heather wanted to surprise her kids so she asked if I would surprise them with a song and a shout-out on-air would make their day!

The next day, I added a special shout-out for them on-air and what happened next was completely unexpected.

They specifically requested the song, Flo Rida, "Apple Bottom Jeans." We played the song for them and after the shout-out and song was played for them, Heather sent me an incredible video.


The kids were screaming and yelling with excitement as my personalized message just for them, aired.

This is so beautiful because their is nothing better than starting your morning off, enjoying music. That is why I love my job so much.

Their was an Australian study done and reported on by CNBC that states,

"Songs with melodies seem to have an energizing effect, “increasing arousal, cognition and attention,” which helps you feel less groggy as you wake up, researchers from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology

Scientists are serious and smart so obviously they are right about this.

All I can say is,

Dear Bus 37,

Keep dancing, singing, and making your bus driver happy. Thank you for your love, I am here to serve you!

Love, Lizzy
