Sunday night after the Grammy Awards, KCBS reporter Serene Branson was giving on on-air recap and her words were complete gibberish that were unintelligible.  Many people were concerned that she may have suffered a stroke on the air.  However, she was examined by paramedics at the scene and her vital signs were normal.  Some people were critical of her going home and not getting a second opinion.

We were discussing Valentine's Day on the show this morning and the how our spouses do little things that show us they love us.  In my case, I call it "DVR Love."

Here's the scoop: in case you somehow missed this.....I am a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan, while my hubby Jeff is a Chicago Bears fan.  First, we had a house-divided over the NFC Championship Game, which the Packers won. They then went on to win Super Bowl 45 last Sunday in Dallas.

I hope you'll join us on Saturday night at The Centre, when DJB, myself and Mark Elliott from the WIKY Afternoon Show will once again be a part of The Really Big Show to benefit The Evansville ARC. This year, we'll be celebrating radio from 1953, when the Evansville ARC was founded.....all the way through present day.  Plus, we'll have the "WARC Word" of the day and DJB and I will actually give away a great prize during the show!

Yesterday's accident at the Westside Steak and Shake was a major topic of discussion on the WIKY Morning Show.  Since the accident involved an elderly gentleman who mistook the gas for the brake as the cause, the subject of seniors behind the wheel was predictably at the forefront of the conversation.  In fact, Diane had noticed this story from ABC News just last week -

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and if you're looking for something really cool to get your sweet baboo.....this is perfect!  On the show, we chatted with Fletcher Newburn from yournovel.com.

How would you like to star in your very own romance novel??  They have over 25 different plot scenarios for you to choose from, and the book can be as "mild" or "wild" as you want it to be!  They're even available as an E-book if that's what your honey wants.

A Wall Street blogger recently listed a number of familiar business, including some with locations in Evansville, that might not make it to the end of 2011. 
 
Here are the businesses we talked about on the WIKY Morning Show -

If you're a long -time listener of the WIKY Morning Show, you'll know that I am a life-long Green Bay Packers fan. My husband, on the other hand, is a Chicago Bears fan.  With both teams playing for the NFC Championship this Sunday, Jeff and I are officially living in a divided house!  To make matters worse, Sunday is our wedding anniversary! This is going to be a very interesting week in my house.

This week on the WIKY Morning Show we discussed a new study that found the ancients had it wrong. Thanks to a typo, you’ve been assigned the wrong Astrological sign. Well, not so fast.  Thanks to WIKY loyal listener Ralph Merkley who ran across this from CNN.com –

Huge news in the world of astrology that Diane and I were talking about on the WIKY Morning Show.
 
Astronomers took the zodiac and adapted it based on the way the Earth's axis was shifted during the Babylonian period, when the original astrological charts were created. The scientists found that all of the dates when the sun is in each zodiac constellation's "house" have changed!
 
So, if you want to

We’ve all watched prison movies where cigarettes are the currency of choice among inmates. Well, now that so many people have quit smoking, including inmates, cigarettes have lost their value as currency.

On the Friday before Thanksgiving you may remember me mentioning that it was the last day of 2010.  Diane scoffed, listeners scolded, and even my family said I was nuts.  But I still think I was right.  Here we are, well over a month later, and schedules and routines still aren't back on track.  And won't be until the Monday after MLK day in a couple of weeks.

We've been trying to get to our annual list of favorite Christmas movies for the last couple of days but due to the weather, we haven't had the time.  But it looks like we'll be able to get to it in the morning between winter storms.

It wasn't that 3.3 inches of snow, the official total yesterday, was such a big deal, it was more that it was the first snow of the season.  That always throws us into a spin, usually along I-164 somewhere.  But since most schools cancelled classes the night before, it actually went pretty smoothly for most of Monday morning.

A few weeks ago on the WIKY Morning Show, we talked about some of the hottest gifts this Christmas and ebooks really look like they're set for a big year but lots of question linger about what's best for them.  Amy Mangold of the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library visited the show yesterday with news of an exciting event.  Tonight, December 8, 6:30 at the Central Library, EVPL will conduct a "Meet the E-readers" party.  There will be a number of available devices to try out and compare.  Plus, it's free!

This morning's Culture Quiz had to do with 34% of Americans refuse to decorate their homes for the Christmas season.

Obviously, these people don't fall into that percentage! Check out the video and be thankful you're not their neighbor!!

We had a very interesting discussion on the WIKY Morning Show about the misconceptions of common Christmas legends.
 
First, the candy cane – you may have heard the story or read the email making the rounds for years about how an Indiana candy maker designed the candy cane to represent the story of Jesus.  Some think of the candy cane as a shepherd’s crook but the story goes that the candy maker made it a “J” for Jesus.

The night before Thanksgiving is the second biggest bar night of the year. It’s also the biggest pizza delivery night of the year. It’s all gearing up for the big get together tomorrow with friends and family.

On the show this morning we brought up an interesting topic......is there anything other than dishes that you wash in your dishwasher?  My dad has washed his baseball hats in the dishwasher for years and swears by it!  He says they turn out just great, so who am I to argue with his logic?  It turns out that a lot of people are in agreement with my dad and keep their chapeaus clean the dishwasher way!
