"The Big Broadcast is a Sunday night tradition for families throughout the WAMU listening area. Each week, Big Broadcast host Ed Walker offers listeners priceless recordings of popular radio programs from the '30s, '40s and '50s. Priceless, especially, for a man whose first sentence as a child was, 'Turn the radio on.' "

Hey Gina, I've been reading most of today but took time to watch the last few minutes of the ATL/SEA game. What an ending! Did you hear Baltimore's game yesterday? Unbelievable grudge match. When it ended horns and fireworks were going off in my sleepy neighborhood.

My week was great. Started a new job downtown and it couldn’t have gone better. Weather here today is awful...thick fog all day. I got some grilling in yesterday.

How are you?

Hey, congratulations on your new job! That’s great news!

We did hear the Ravens game yesterday. We wondered if you were a Ravens or a Redskins fan. It was a heck of game, too.

We’ve had fog and cloudiness for several days now, and we’re expecting more rain over the next few days.

The week was okay—not too eventful, but we have to go to bed early tonight to get up early in the morning. I may have to listen to The Whistler another evening.

I grew up on the skins but live about 10min from Ravens stadium.

What’s going on tomorrow?

A funeral. Keith’s nephew died, natural causes. He was in his thirties. It’s very sad.

Lance Armstrong is scheduled to be interviewed by Oprah on Thurs night. I have Directv, & I don’t believe I get her network.

Can’t imagine what he’s going to say after all the lies he told in the past.

Armstrong and Oprah. Disgusting.

Yeah, Oprah is a commie—at least she loves Big O.

Our nation is on the brink of terrible, terrible things, much worse than any sports “scandal” imaginable.

That didn't come out right. I was saying she's a commie, but then I qualified it by (meant to say) whatever she is, she's an Obama-lover--either way, not good. She may not be a full-blown communist, but she is certainly useful to the Left.

*CAUTION: DISINFECT BEFORE READING*

Evening, folks, from Flu Central.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I don’t see her as a communist. I believe she is a drug addled, blasphemous, narcissist who got rich teaching women to feel entitled and worship themselves.

Read the whole book & it’s going to stay on my Kindle. At some point I might re-read it. Tyler Hamilton seems to have rebuilt his life.

The paperwork (and a fat check of earnest money) is with the federales, and the contract should be back by Tuesday. Once it comes back, the missus will work with the closer to get the restoration company to restart the utilities and get the home inspector in while I beat on my loan officer like he was a red-headed stepchild. Due diligence window, and all that. We outlasted two investors and the Devil himself to win this bid, and we're in full pit bull mode now.

I've been so laid out the last two days, I didn't make it to church this morning. When my wife got there, the pastor was greeting everyone at the door and handing out canisters of foaming hand sanitizer. It's bad everywhere.

Thanks Vision...I've enjoyed Gunsmoke for many years. Recently Encore has had the early episodes [the 30 minute program] and many of them follow the same story line and uses many of the the same actors, such as James Nusser, John Dehner as on the radio programs.....

Yea. Antioch play Benny every day from 7-8am est. Love waking up to that. Benny and Phil Harris are the funniest guys who ever lived IMO. I'm looking forward to listening to all the years. It will make you cringe at how bad culture is nowadays. But we still have them.
