SOME STUFF ABOUT SANDY
Sandy is a funny, sarcastic stand-up comedian who loves puppies, penny-slots, and anything with frosting.
She grew up in Milpitas (don’t be JEALOUS) and did midday radio in San Jose for 10 years before getting "the opportunity of a lifetime” here at Star 101.3. While she loves making listeners laugh every morning, she admits that waking up before Starbucks is even open "just isn’t right."
Sandy has completed the Nike Women’s Marathon twice (run-walked….which means walked), hosted red-carpet interviews for Nickelodeon’s TV Land Awards, worked comedy clubs like the San Francisco Punchline and Riviera Las Vegas, and most importantly; bowled a perfect 300 at age 15. She then used her bowling scholarship money to pay for her tuition at Ohlone College in Fremont. This bio gets sexier by the minute.
Sandy's future goals include traveling the world, becoming a philanthropist, and working as a late-night talk show host. In the meantime, she’s just trying to wake up when her alarm clock goes off at 4am.

SOME STUFF ABOUT FROSTY
Frosty is a seasoned radio veteran, having hosted shows in nearly every radio format for more than thirty years. Before joining the Star 101.3 morning show, Frosty enjoyed an enormously successful decade hosting one of the most popular talk shows in Los Angeles. Before that, the ‘90s found him in Denver and Milwaukee doing morning talk radio. In the ‘80s he woke up morning radio listeners in Milwaukee, Louisville, Indianapolis, Omaha, and Grand Rapids. Originally from the Midwest, he entertained radio audiences in Indiana for several years early in his career. But Frosty has been happy to call California home since 1998.
An accomplished musician, Frosty owns a professional recording & broadcast studio back in LA. He has recorded extensively as a professional keyboardist, including recording session work for other artists in Los Angeles. As a singer/songwriter and keyboardist, as well as music producer for others, music has been a second career through the years.
Perhaps surprisingly, Frosty is a certified teacher for K-12. However, broadcasting turned out to be his calling. A world traveler, he has spent time in over 30 countries, and every state in the USA. Ireland is like another home where he tries to visit at least once a year, and he is part owner of a pub there. His hobbies include creative writing, with a book in progress. His love and care for animals is widely known and dogs carry a special place in his heart. And in an obscure note, it is rumored there isn’t a person alive who can beat him in 1970’s music trivia.
You can hear Frosty bantering with cohost Sandy Stec weekday mornings 6-10am on Star 101.3, where he brings his insights and commentary to the world of morning radio. They always have a good time keeping the topics of the day fun and interesting, while enjoying the best music of the 80s, 90s and today.
So......from Thursday until Sunday, I was "on vacation" at the Tony Robbins seminar in San Jose. I'd wanted to go to this forever, but for whatever reason, this seemed to be the right time. I turned my phone off and didn't go online because I really wanted to be "present" and enjoy this experience. (also, it was a 50 hour seminar!) Little did I know it would be a HUGE news story that "21 people SEVERELY burned at the Tony Robbins event in San Jose."
First, I walked on the hot coals and was FINE. He gave us instructions for 3 HOURS. And, it was optional! Secondly.....this story was fabricated by someone who lied to the press. I was there; there were no ambulances and people "screaming in horror" as described.
Anyway......I had an absolutely INCREDIBLE time. It took me a while to get into it because I was tired, bitchy, and too "connected." Once I slept, turned technology off, and let go...life happened. Also:
* One day I slept in and ordered room service. I wanted an omlette and pancakes....but couldn't justify paying full price for both. So, I ordered an omelette and "kids" pancakes. I had to lie and say there were 2 people in my room. It was quite possibly the lowest food-moment of my life. Still don't regret it.
* The "hot coals" experience felt like a cross between "Survivor: Hawaii" and "Survivor: Silicon Valley." Midnight, 6,000 people, fire pits, and bongo/island music playing. My feet are fine. They're ugly, but that's because they're a size 10.
* At first I HATED interacting with people around me. Didn't want to high-five them, hug them, or even make eye contact. By day 4 I cried in their arms. Also, I got a massage from 2 strangers at the same time. It felt kind of slutty and I LOVED IT.
* On the first day, my stomach was CRAZY gassy. I don't know how or why this happened, but I'm blaming my Cliff Bar. And of course, what did we end up doing? Jumping up and down- repeatedly! Suddenly "Unleash the Power Within" hit a little too close to home...
* Overall, this experience was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I'm very excited for what the future brings! (Including Mastery University. OH SNAP!)
(Sorry about the red-eye. Bleh!)
