Friends, it's Sunday night again. Warm up the tubes for another 4 hours of classic radio programs...
Interesting lineup tonight...
We’re looking forward to it, Vision.
we’ll miss Steel’s synopses, though...
Hi Gina, it is what it is.
How was your week? What do you like tonight?
Vision, it looks like an all-around good lineup. I’ll like hearing Escape and the Lux Theater, as always.
We had a fair week. I got most of a load off my mind in nearly completing a speech I’ve been asked to give at two different Tea Party groups coming up. One group wants me to talk for half an hour, so that’s quite a bit of writing (I don’t trust myself to go impromptu). I’ll find out how long the other group wants, and just edit the same speech down. The groups are in two different cities in two different states, so I figure I can get by with doing that.
Right now, Keith is watching golf on the laptop, and I’m doing laundry—just cracked our first beer for the evening. Gray sky day here today, but nice mild temperatures in the 60s.
On the Frank Race, I'm just going by the date, since the program says it has no title, even though a title is given at WAMU.
OH! I almost forgot: SPOILER ALERT!!!

Nice Gina, good job.
Oh, one more thing this week... I came under the Daily Kook radar:
Badge of honor.
Amazing. So how does it feel?
Hi everyone! Thanks for the Ping.
Bizarre. Of course, with the Left, "logic" is a foreign concept. I did get a few emails from the Kooks, because one of them posted my work email down in the comments section. I shot gaping holes in their "arguments" they emailed to me (after wading through the profanities hurled at me by one of them).
Hello, Dr. Scarpetta!
It’s good to see you an hour early this week. Changing the time twice a year is the pits. I always ask why we can’t split the difference by half an hour and leave it alone!
Keith said he really liked that episode of Challenge of the Yukon. It was a good one.
I liked it too. Can’t remember a show set like that before.
Caught a cold that’s going around the family...we’re all sick...
won’t be here next 2 Sundays...going on vacation
It seemed like a Long day with the time change!
Have a good time, Dr. Scarpetta! It will be pretty quiet around here with just Vision and me.
We have wondered about Viking...
I’ll say it again...I love the Lux opening theme...
It really is very lovely!
I’m going to find out what Steve does from the radio. Night Gina.
Goodnight, Vision and Dr. Scarpetta!
Hope you feel better!
