Mental Health Monday w/ Carrie Danger

Happy Earth Day everyone!! 

Today I decided to quote Bill Nye the Science Guy “To leave the world better than you found it, sometimes you have to pick up other people’s trash.” 

Pretty straight forward... but I hear something more. Maybe you agree! 

Listen below for the full audio and thank you! <3 

Yours Genuinely, Carrie Danger 

Join me Monday afternoons at 5:20pm for Mental Health Monday where I bring you a little something motivational for you to start your week. It's only on 107.3 Alternative Cleveland with me, Carrie Danger.

Royel Otis w/ Carrie Danger

Hey guys! 

Last week I got to chat with Royel Otis about their upcoming show at the Grog Shop on April 28th w/ Girl and Girl. 

If you've heard The Danger Zone you've heard their song 'Sofa King' and their cover of Sophie Ellis-Baxter's 2001 song 'Murder on the Dance Floor'. 

In this interview you'll find out what inspired them to cover that song and so much more! 

Thank you for listening <3 
Yours, Carrie Danger

Holiday Thoughts w/ Carrie Danger

Hey everyone!

Been a while but here we are! With the holidays here I thought we should touch on one of the many reasons for all the pretty lights, the beautiful trees and the big family gatherings. 

Talking with my tattoo artist she made some great points about why the holidays are her favorite, it feels GOOD to decorate and share quality time with friends and family! 

Really, it can be hard to power through this cold and busy time of year but take a moment to remember it’s not about the savings and the spending and the gifting… it’s about having FUN and making memories with the ones you love. 

It’s nice to give and recieve gifts but don’t feel like you have to. A girlfriend of mine is saving for a wedding and just bought a house and she loves to give actual gifts but it’s tight this year. So I suggested she could just make everyone her soup or something that is her “thing”. 

What I’m saying is, have the most fun decorating your home if you’re into it. Go drive around and look at the house lights and don’t feel any pressure to actually buy things for others. It’s just stuff. Life is so short we don’t need to be so hard on ourselves especially during the coldest time of year.

Attached are some of my favorite holiday songs <3 


I love you all, have a great safe holiday season and take care of yourself!

You Should Be Proud Of Yourself w/ Carrie Danger

Hello everyone! 

This past summer I saw something random on social media and it said “Instead of “I’m proud of you” what about, “you should be proud of yourself”” 

That got me thinking, why don’t we say that to kids or even yourselves? Many of us rely on the validation of others. Maybe we weren’t taught that we could be proud of ourselves, maybe we don’t want to “brag”. There could be a long list of reasons why we focus on the approval of others. 

Well I’m here to tell you, YOU should be proud of yourself! For everything you’ve accomplished. 

Of course it feels great to hear “I’m proud of you” from someone you care about or look up to but when we don’t get that validation, we feel hurt… so why not be comfortable and secure being proud of yourself? 

Recently, I made some big changes in my life for the better and I was seeking that reassurance from people around me instead of reassuring myself that… yeah I’m doing this and I’m doing great! (Also, imposter syndrome we can dive into another time) 

Now it’s hard to break that habit for ourselves as adults but what if we could change the narrative for the kids? Now I’m not saying that we can’t say “I’m so proud of you” but why not add some new phrases so they know that even if they got a B on that test, they know they worked hard and that’s something to be proud of too! 

Here are some phrases I want to incorporate not only with my niece and nephew but also my adult friends! 

“I see the progress you’ve made”
“You should be so proud of yourself!” 
“You grew a lot from that experience” 
“That took a lot of work” 

Here is one of the many links I found that helps shift the narrative, this is more focused on children but I’m here to say it can go a long way for adults too!

You should be so proud of yourself for all your hard work because I am! 

Take care of yourself.
Love, Carrie Danger

Everyday I'm Shufflin'

Nothing beats teambuilding... unless you couple teambuilding with shuffleboard! 

Went out to Forest City Shuffleboard with the 107.3 ALT CLE squad (see photo) and lemme tell you, it was a BLAST! I'd never played before, unless you count gym class in grade school, which begs the question that was part of the cirriculum... But as an adult, I have a renewed appreciation for the game and it's all thanks to Forest City Shuffleboard. 

So I teamed up with Brady Marks, who claims to have never played as well. Word of advice: if you can be on her team, do it, and if she ever challenges you to a "friendly game of shuffleboard," hard pass! She's deceptively good, which leads me to believe she was sandbaggin' and is some kind of professional shuffleboarder (I'm doing more research as we speak). 

Since they've opened at 4506 Lorain Avenue in 2017, business is booming! Hosting leagues, work parties, party parties, reunions, and more! They do it all, and not just with the shuffleboard, but with their kitchen! I had the this chicken slider (see reaction photo below). Heavenly, really! And on a personal note, for someone who doesn't drink (me), Forest City Shuffleboard provides a lot more than just your average bar. Obvi, the shuffleboard, but there are arcade games, and more... They even have that punch game so you can impress your date... or embarass yourself, but that's not the point. The point is there's so much more! 

Forest City 2

And the staff is so cool! Lexi in marketing and Brian behind the bar - great folks! So book your next party and help support a terrific local biz! As for me, I'll be steady shufflin' shufflin' shuffle-shufflin'... You get it.

Mix it up w/ Carrie Danger

Hello everyone! 

If you know me by now you know I love to go for a walk and I am a big fan of routine to help keep me grounded. 

So you combine those and BOOM you’re left with a woman who likes to do the same trail the exact same way each time. Great but also it’s important to mix it up. 

Now I don’t get a ton of time to venture out to other walking places plus I feel safe where I go. 

Recently, I went on a walk and decided I would start the trail in the opposite direction… what a lovely change! I remember reading a study about mixing things up with the example of brushing your teeth but starting on the opposite side you usually do or if you brush in a clockwise direction go counterclockwise. 

"The science journal Nature Neuroscience found that adding variety to your daily routine can boost activity levels in your brain and make you feel happier.

It’s especially beneficial to mix up your environment, even in small ways like by taking a different commute to work."

So what I personally observed from my walk the opposite direction was different plants I never noticed before, the terrain was different of course but that worked different muscles. 

Now I won’t be mixing up my morning routine, lemon water first then coffee and so on… BUT this is a nice change of pace and my nephew seems to like it too! 

So challenge yourself to try something new or just walk in the opposite direction once in a while! 

I'm adding a song I personally enjoy and it gets me movin and groovin! 

Take care of yourself,
Love, Carrie Danger

Stress Dolls w/ Carrie Danger

Hello everyone! 

This week I was honored to have Chelsea aka Stress Dolls in for an interview and she was kind enough to play a few songs! Chelsea played her not yet released single ‘Ghostwriter’ that I’ll feature in the Danger Zone on Friday October 13th! You can hear her inspiration for that song in the interview, I love it! 

So I gotta tell you she was so wonderful to have in the studio. You can feel vibes from people and she has that calming aura that just brings a sense of peace and confidence, even though she goes by Stress Dolls! 

CD and Stress Dolls

Below enjoy our fantastic interview and her song ‘Curves and Edges’ along with the song I mention in the interview ‘Nervous’. 

Mark your calendars she will be at Westside Bowl in Youngstown on October 20th and at Magic Mugs on October 21st! More details and dates on the website stressdollsmusic.com

Enjoy and as always, take care of yourself. 
Love, Carrie Danger
