Friends it's Sunday night again, and time to relax. Warm up the tubes for another four hours of classic radio Americana.
*tonight's show will be available at the "Info" link starting tomorrow.
Of course we have a Mother’s Day show tonight...Jack Benny and Phil Harris/Alice Faye has the potential to be a very strong hour of comedy...
Tell Mom we all said Happy Mother’s Day!
Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms. Naturally, it's a Mother's Day lineup.

Hi, Viking! :-)
Viking and everyone, here’s a very cool (short) video you will LOVE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB3xM93rXbY
I back out at the ‘standing a lot’ bit. LOL
Yeah, it gets pretty darned tough! :-)
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
There’s a LOT of rip-offs of it today. :-D
Hey Gina, heading back home now and listening in the car
Very good! I hope you had a nice time with your Mom.
So, where did you take Mom, Vision?
Awesome video, Gina!
To a little Italian spot, mostly American dishes. It was good. What you up to?
What are you up to Gina?
Barbequing chicken for the wife, staying medicated, and trying to stay cool. It was kind of beastly down here today. Supposed to drop back into the upper 40’s at night by midweek, but it’s still 80 out there right now. Heck of a time for the central A/C to take a nap. And it was working back around New Year’s.
It was in the 80’s here today...
I rather live with the polar bears. LOL
“...I happen to know a guy...”
That’s a great one, BF! I put it on Facebook today. Good stuff! I’m afraid my computer is getting ready to die. I have an important column I MUST write tomorrow, so I pray the thing holds up.
Great picture, Vision!
Not much going on here. Trying frantically to back up my address book on my weird-acting computer, do laundry, etc.
I hope my computer doesn’t die before I do what I need to do tomorrow!
Otherwise, all is well here. Was your trip a good one?
Trip was really enjoyable, somewhat dream like.
This Phil Harris show is fairly funny... you think?
Yes, all these shows are funny! :-)
Dream like! That’s a great way for a trip to be, I guess. :-)
I'm heading to the radio and will post again if something noteworthy happens.
Have a great week Gina.
Good night, Vision!
