Okay, if you knew me 10 years ago you'd know that I had a MAJOR crush on Jimmy Chunga from 107.5 The End (now 101.9). I even went to an appearance he did at the opening of the theaters at Jordan Landing and hugged him- lame I know, and I didn't care. I used to listen to him on the radio every morning on my way to work. My opportunities to listen to The End have drastically tapered since I've had kids, until today when I listened for over three hours. Do you want to know why? Because when I turned it on when I was driving home from the gym this morning, who did I hear on Chunga's show? MATT MATTSON. That's right, MY Matt, the Matt I know was on The End. I was freaking. I still am a little.

Matt is an actor, song writer, singer, artist, comedian, and all around big 'ole teddy bear. He's extremely talented and I love cheering him on. So GO MATT! You're my new idol. Chunga, Chels and Court were nice to you, and you really did great. You won the contest against Court, and you made them laugh a bunch of times. It was perfect. I was so proud.

(I need to recognize Meghan in the background of this photo, she's Matt's sweetheart and she's delightful and this picture does not do her justice).

I love the new backdrop. Very cute. So why was Matt on the radio?

THe backdrop is probably different now. I don't like it when they make the photos transparent, you can't see them as well.

Matt was just a guest host. I don't know why, but it was thrilling for me.

...and totally worth the phone call at SEVEN IN THE MORNING. (She woke me up to hear you Matt, I hope you know how much we adore you!)

It was fun to listen to- and if I could wake up to his voice EVERY morning, I totally would!

PS I really like the background, you made it work! Good girl.

I heard the whole thing this morning also! I love Chunga and now I love matt. I feel kinda famous because I know you and you now Matt and he was on the radio with my 101.9 homies. I once called in and Chunga said I sounded sexy, they called me the heart girl.

I bet that was weird to hear him! It is always so shocking to see someone we know from high school or otherwise on TV too. But its fun to say, "Hey I know that guy!" Those words instantly upgrade your social status. ;)

I'm diggin' your background too!

Matt Mattson said...

Michelle! Thanks for including me in your blog. I am flattened.

As far as being on The Chunga Show - it was SUCH A BLAST!

I was surprised with a call from Cort telling me that they were auditioning for a person to be a part of the morning show. I guess Chunga, knowing that I improvise, mentioned my name. So I jumped on it!

I hope you're doing well:)

I HATE Matt!! [I can say that because he's my (big) little brother]. I would have let you know, babe in boysland, had I known you were still alive :)
