It’s always baffled me how and why people celebrated birthdays of those that had passed. I mean, isn’t the purpose to “celebrate” the birth & life of the individual? Then last year it hit me (nine years after losing my mother), the celebration is for us. It’s our way of saying YOUR LIFE HAD MEANING…WE WILL REMEMBER…YOU ARE STILL WITH US. Long Live The King Of Pop Music! Let us know your favorite Michael Jackson memory in the Comment Section below
Today marks what would have been Michael Jackson’s 54th birthday. V101.9 will celebrate his life throughout the day and tonight at 9pm I will dedicate the entire 9pm hour to MJ by playing an entire hour of his music, his legacy. What I love about his music is every song takes me to a specific time and place in my life…it helps me remember.

Once I realized the purpose behind the celebration, I began to celebrate too. Last year I went to my mother’s favorite chain restaurant, ate her favorite foods, had a really good “drank” that she would have loved and I laughed. What better way to celebrate and keep someone’s memory alive?
The best conversations begin with…”Do You Remember the Time?”
Happy Birthday Michael…tell my mom, dad and grand-parents I remember!
