It's from the John F Kennedy Library. They have digitized a lot of video, papers, speeches etc and have put them together in an interesting online exhibt. I will enjoying slogging thru it later tonight.
Okay, I will admit it. I have never watched "Jersey Shore" the program on MTV that is the current rage. (The Corner Bar on the West Side even has a "Jersey Shore" night.) But I am obsessed with "Snooki" - I think her real name is Nicole something or other. She has really become a larger than life celebrity and I am really impressed how she let David Letterman make fun of her to promote her book. I think it would be fun to have her on as a guest on the Afternoon Show.
This video came up today (there is a Star Trek exhibit coming to a museum in Louisville) and I thought everyone around here had seen this. I worked at a station in Cincinnati in the 80's and this was for a promotion with Star Trek - The Next Generation. They flew us out to Universal Studios and we met the entire cast of both shows. (And FYI, Shatner is a pain in the posterior.) Diane Douglas saw this and now calls me Secret Squirel.

After I got home, I started watching TV since the races in California and the West Coast were just getting decided, fell asleep in the recliner and woke up in a daze. So if I'm a little slow or lethargic Wednesday afternoon, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Hope the storm didn't bring down any trees in your yard and you didn't lose power. While all the experts say it was a powerful storm (what did DJB call it, a "land bomb" ) it didn't affect me much - I SLEPT THRU IT.
Monday I played "Suspicious Minds" - the new version from Viva Elvis. This is the latest Cirque de Soleil show in Las Vegas. Cirque de Soliel takes the music and adapts it for their performance, and then gets dancers, acrobats and all sorts of special effects. They did it with The Beatles and it was a rousing success. If you want more info about it, here's the link to their website:
First load of laundry in my new washing machine, I spend the evening washing, drying etc. Go to fold and put away, and I end up with 13 mismatched socks. How can, in one load, the dryer eat that many. I know, I know, they are probably under the bed or on the bathroom floor, but it doens't bode well on my laundry sorting and doing future does it?
WIKY and our digital partners at South Central Media have been working for a long time to develop this new and hopefully easier to use web page for WIKY. Take some time and explore it, check out the menu items, and let me know if you see anything that doesn't work. Email me at email@example.com.
This is my new blog posts. I'll try (and I do mean try) to post something about the show every day. Got an idea? Please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you on the radio.
