You Know You’re From The Magic Valley When…

Recently there have been articles featured on the web about “You Know You’re From New Jersey When…” and we didn’t want to be left out of the fun. The staff of 95.7 KEZJ, News Radio 1310 KLIX, KOOL 96.5, and 98.3 The Snake had a lot of fun putting this list together. This one is for the locals.
