Bust a Groove with Cody Morton

If you're like most kidz you like to crank up the radio for the latest tunes. Cody Morton likes radio so much that he runs his own radio program called Bust a Groove on CHOO FM in Tofino, BC, Canada. There are a ton of radio shows out there but how many of them are run by 12 year-old boys?

Most guys his age are off playing baseball, video games or hangin' with friends. Of course Cody does normal things too, but Saturday mornings he gets up at 6:00 am, drives two hours to the station with his mom and does a two-hour program. Now that's dedication!

Cody's show is made up of pop and new music. "I play Shaggy, Soul Decision, Nelly Furtado. And I throw in some jokes and really stupid stuff. It's relaxed and laid back," Cody told The Vancouver Province. Cody gets his music off the net cuz it would be too expensive to buy CDs. Besides playing great tunes, Cody's also interviewed some great people on his show like Blue Rodeo, The B.C. Lions football team, Soul Decision, Edwin and even the Prime Minister of Canada Jean Chretien. Now that's something for show and tell! He writes and prepares the scripts at home before warming up at the station. His Bust a Groove show has been on the air for over a year now and shows no signs of slowing down.

One of the major highlights for the grade seven DJ was covering the 2001 Juno Awards show (Canada's answer to the Grammys.) When he discovered he was the youngest person with access to the media room he said, "I'm the youngest person ever?! Whoa! That's really cool. I'm really hyped about it. It's all good." Word on the street is that Cody's a natural and people love him. He was voted the Best DJ in the city of Port Alberni in a reader's poll by the Alberni Valley Times daily newspaper.

He's taken his radio show to the next level with his own Web site www.bustagrooveonline.com. The site will include online video and radio broadcasting. A word of advice from Cody is to "follow your dreams and they'll come true." He's proof that if you believe in yourself you can make things happen. It looks like Cody has a really bright future ahead and who knows, one day he could be taking over MTV.

I mean, you're forcing me to choose between two of my greatest loves: Harry Potter and Star Wars.  BUT... if I  had  to choose one **drum roll** I would have to say...Rogue One. *cringes away from angry mob of Potterheads* yeah, I know. Rogue One was really freaking sad and how could I not love the ever adorable Newt Scamander. I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult this choice was. But Rogue One's plot..and how well it connected with the prequels and the original trilogy-that was awesome, and thus it wins by a miniscule margin :P I will say that Fantastic Beasts is a much more light-hearted film and ergo a film I'd likely watch more, especially since Rogue One is right before A New Hope which would probably cause me to go on a Star Wars Movie binge. Not that Fantastic Beasts wouldn't cause me to go on a HP binge. I mean, given the choice between the two on TV I'd prob chose Fantastic Beasts but I still think Rogue One is the better made film, for lack of a better phrase. exactly mate.
