Saturday Morning May 26, 2007 Play List

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I think it's interesting how we in this country will use any three day weekend as an excuse to party and drive big boats too fast on small lakes, even when the reason for the three day weekend is a somber one. Perhaps a moment can be set aside, in between beers, to consider all those you have died or put their lives on the line regardless of the utility or purpose of the mission.

Here's today's playlist. Thanks for tuning in....

Public Radio Talent Quest

I have used this contest as a catalyst for producing a short radio story. You can check it out here if you like. Let me know what you think, and feel free to vote. I have no aspiration to be the next public radio star. But, I do want to start producing radio stories. Stay tuned. I will be expanding this two minute piece into something a bit longer, closer to 10 minutes and will post it when it's done by the end of June. So, fingers crossed. It's time for a bit more creativity in my life.

Thanks for checking in. See you Saturday Morning. What do you want to hear?
