WIKY News has had the story today about the new Wireless Emergency Alerts starting next week. It's an update to the Emergency Alert System (those obnoxious tones you hear on the radio before a weather warning.) If you have one of the newer smartphones you are already signed up and ready to get them (although you might need a software update.) Get more info here:
Here's the trailer for the movie Rock of Ages as we talked about on the Afternoon Show today.
Tuesday May 15th is Take a Picture Day. Pick up your camera and help capture a day in the life of the planet. The project wants amateur and professional photographers to capture an image of their home, travel, or work on May 15. The images will be published on the Internet, compiled into a book, and buried in a time capsule. You can see this project online now at http://www.aday.org
There are a lot of people who aren't what they seem.
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 Thanksgiving. Hope your holdiay is going well. Check out this video my friends in Northern Michigan sent me yesterday.
They spent the day taking about it on the air, but I think this is fake.

First thanks to Mike, Darrin, Carla and Casey for helping out during this years taste testing. If I get anyone’s name or booth wrong, blame Darrin he kept notes (and he’s on Facebook, so blame him directly.)
