Born in West Virginia, raised in Ohio, and a graduate of Sprayberry High School in Marietta, GA,

RIGGS has held music-related jobs for most of his life.  He worked at Turtle’s Records from 1983-1993, gathering a wealth of music & artist knowledge.  Upon graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in English, RIGGS went to work full-time at WNGM Television in Athens. From then it was on, a life of beer, babes & rock-n-roll.  He thought playing rock on the radio would be a better gig than living in a teepee in the woods of Georgia, so to the beach he came, with nothing but a pair of shorts, flip-flops and a beat up Boombox with Metallica’s Greatest Hits.

Listen to Saturday Night Loud every Saturday from 9pm-Midnight.  He’ll crank it to “11” with stuff you’ll never hear during the week on the HOG.  From Buckcherry to Slipknot to Barry Manilow’s greatest hits!

Smart girl…Sounds like FIJI owes her some money!

Here’s why you don’t try to rob a UFC fighter….

There are some parts of Rio de Janeiro where a woman shouldn’t be alone at night.  Unless that woman is a UFC FIGHTER with a 10 and 2 record. On Saturday night, POLYANA VIANA was sitting outside her apartment complex in Rio waiting for an Uber, when a man sat next to her and demanded her phone.  He claimed to have a ... Read More »

Dumb ass of the day

If you can get arrested for having a huge bulge in your pants, I better find myself a lawyer.

NFL has changed Parkeys MISSED field goal to BLOCKED kick.

If you’re a Chicago Bears fan, you’re probably still upset about CODY PARKEY missing the potential game-winning field goal on Sunday. For everyone else, it’s still pretty amazing that he somehow hit both the goalpost AND the crossbar . . . especially since he’s hit the goalpost on five OTHER kicks this season alone, including FOUR times in a single game.  (Here’s video.) Well, maybe there IS ... Read More »

And the woman ran . . . right into a karate studio. ... Read More »
