A lot of people complain about the number of sequels that hog all the screens at movie theatres these days. And if you're one of them, then I hate to tell you....it's going to be a bad year for you. That's because there are 27 sequels flooding the marketplace. And that's an all-time record. (The previous record was 23 in 2003.) It also represents about one-fifth of all wide releases for the coming year!
For years, among the biggest secrets in the world has famously been the formula for Coca-Cola. It's up there with the secret recipe for KFC, where the government is keeping the aliens, and what happened to Jimmy Hoffa (who is not buried in the endzone at Giants stadium, Mythbusters proved that).
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.

I wanted to share with you one of the stories from the book and I hope it can inspire you like it did me.
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!
Thanks for all the calls and email about Flashback Friday A to Z. It was fun putting it together and I got to play a lot of MY favorite songs. If you liked it, let me know and maybe we'll do something like that again.
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.
