John Riggs

I've been in radio since 2001 and moved around a few times before landing where I am now. I'm married with three children. I'm an autism acceptance advocate. I love to cook, just don't like doing the dishes afterward. I have a knack for all things nostalgic from the '80s and '90s, love breakfast cereal a little too much and am a huge fan of video games, especially retro games from Atari to Nintendo and beyond.

Even if you're an expert at haggling, according to a money-saving guru, these seven simple words can save you a ton of cash.

My Dad and I Jam the Swallow Tail Jig [VIDEO]

I'm currently learning the ukulele. My dad, who knows how to play just about every instrument, and I hang out sometimes while he teaches me some uke tricks and, every once in a while, he'll bust out his viola (his preferred instrument of choice).
