About Steve
I have been the host of the Indiana 105 Dawn Patrol for the Last 15 years. I originally hail from Louisiana, but have lived in Indiana since 1983. So at this point I think it is safe to say I'm a Hoosier. However I will always be a New Orleans Saints Fan, no matter what kind of trouble they may get into. My man cave is called the Voodoo Lounge Deux. The Original Voodoo Lounge was taken out by what was left of Hurricane Ike a few years back. The center piece of the Voodoo Lounge Deux is my hot sauce collection. Some people collect coffee mugs on vacation, I collect Hot Sauce. The Sauce of choice right now is brewed in Northwest Indiana by the Scoffeld Brothers. Be very careful with the Heavy Metal Sauce. However my favorite is a sauce from Barbados called Delish Bajan Sauce. Very hard to find. If you are going to Barbados and can hook a brother up......

My wife Colleen and I were married in 2000. Her grandmother used to own Ma Cole's dinner for all you old timers. And yes we met on the the radio. She was my first winner with Movie trivia 15 years ago. We have helped to for a new Theatre Company that raises money for charity. The Valparaiso Theatrical Company give 60% of every ticket sold back to a 501C3 charity. We have two sons and 4 grand children.

How to Find The Deals Hidden in the Price

Steve's Blog


Prices ending in $0.99: you’ll be paying full retail price.
Prices ending in $0.97: the price of a discontinued item on clearance, but price could go down even further.
Prices ending in $0.88: the final markdown price.
Prices ending in $0.99: full price.
The prices of some items may end in 8 or 4, such as $7.88 or $7.24, which typically indicates that the items are on clearance.
Consumers should look at the top corner of price tags, which sometimes reveal the markdown percentage of the item from the original price. If it says “50,” it’s 50 percent off the original price. Items will usually stay at the current markdown percentage for 10-14 days before getting marked down further.

Odd pricing like those that end in a 79¢, 49¢, 89¢ and others are usually regular priced merchandise. 
Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic
Prices ending in $0.47, $0.49, $0.97 or $0.99: The item is marked as clearance or discontinued and is probably the best price.
Home Depot
Prices ending in a 6: 6 weeks to go until the next price change. These are often printed on a yellow tag, but not always.

Why You Should Always Order the Large Pizza

Steve's Blog



The findings across the board: always buy the bigger pie. The bigger the pizza, the cheaper the slice. 

It’s akin to looking at the “price per sheet” breakdown in the fine print at the grocery store, and opting to lug home 24 rolls of toilet paper instead of four. 

The best bit about the graph: It’s entirely interactive, so you can move a slide along its X-axis to find out how much money you might be saving by buying a bigger pie
