Talk Radio and Other Stuff

I was a devoted listener of the "Bob and Tom Show" during my morning commute for several years.  Then, my local station (Z Rock 99.3 if you'd like to write them a letter of protest) discontinued Bob and Tom and starting running something they call the Chainsaw Circus.  Maybe I'm just getting old (okay, so I AM getting old), but that's just not my cup of tea.  Still in mourning for Bob and Tom (and especially Chick McGee), I scanned the FM dial for something else to listen to on my way to the office and happened across a familiar voice.

It took only moments for me to identify the voice of Steve Hawkins.  Hooray!  I was a long-time fan of Steve when he was the news anchor of WCYB-TV (and frankly think they need him back DESPERATELY), and was happy to hear his voice at 92.9 on my radio dial.

As I listened to the show this morning on my way to the office, it was "Plug Something Wednesday", when callers can call in and plug a local event for free.  One of the events plugged was the "Fall Folk Arts Festival" at the Exchange Place this weekend.

My parents and I have said for a long time that we wanted to go to the Exchange Place "one of these days".  Well, if the weather cooperates, I'm hopeful that we'll finally go there this weekend.  Admission is only $1 for adults, and it looks like there will be lots going on there during the Festival.  Lots of demonstrations of skills that were necessities back in the 1850s, not to mention the anticipation of the aromas of Brunswick stew and apple butter being stirred over open!!

I personally am looking forward to demonstrations of spinning and weaving, but you know how I am about fiber crafts.  *LOL*  They also have some Cotswold sheep that I look forward to seeing.

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather!
