**  With all of the celebrity deaths we've reported over the past couple of weeks, we had some good news this morning concerning Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees.  He was near death last week in a coma as he battle pneumonia.  But, he woke up from the coma over the weekend, and although he is quite weak, he is responding to his doctors well!

**  Huge news in the world of Major League Baseball over the weekend: Phil Humbar of the Chicago White Sox pitched a perfect game over the Seattle Mariners!  It's only the 21st perfect game in Majo

** Another celebrity obit this morning to pass along, and this was a big one for Diane.  Jonathan Frid, who played the vampire Barnabus Collins on the original "Dark Shadows," passed away at the age of 87.  For a whole generation, their afternoon wasn't complete without watching the gothic soap that was "Dark Shadows!" Diane even had this Barnabus Collins "Dark Shadows" Board Game!

AB on a Keyring

With the passing of Dick Clark I remembered a number of years ago getting a package in the mail with a 50th anniversary keychain for American Bandstand.  It had the famous AB logo on one side in blue and "50 years of Bandstand" on the reverse.  With it a handwritten note from Dick thanking me for my support over the years.  It was just so cool.  I wore that keyring out in my pocket and had to retire it when the loop broke.  Dick Clark was one of my heroes.

**  Of course, the big news item yesterday afternoon was the passing of Dick Clark at age 82.  I think everyone has their own memory of what he meant to them, whether it was watching him on "American Bandstand," on "The $10,000 Pyramid," or watching him countdown to the New Year on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve."  The man was a pioneer in so many facets of the radio and television industry.  I found this obit on  Dick Clark online yesterday, and I thought it was fascinating.  Click on this link to check it out.

There are a lot of people who aren't what they seem.

The Space Shuttle in Washington


Thanks to Tom Goeble (from Evansville) who now works at NASA.  He was in the air over Washington DC today as the Discovery Space Shuttle was being transported to it's new home at the Smithsonian.  I was chatting about the shuttle today on the Afternoon Show and a friend of his mom sent me this picture.  SO COOL!!!

** Happy Tax Day!! Yes, don't forget that your taxes are due today by midnight. We mentioned that due to budget cuts in the U.S. Postal Service, many post offices won't be open late this evening, so you'll have to get them in during normal postal office hours.
