July 5th WIKY Morning Show

It's a Thursday that feels like a Monday.....isn't it weird to have a holiday smack dab in the middle of the week?

We talked about Andy Griffith's passing. This is one celebrity obituary that really bummed out DJB and my husband. Both of them are big fans of "The Andy Griffith Show." One of Andy Griffith's later movie roles was in "Waitress." It also features Keri Russell and a pre-"Castle" Nathan Fillian. I can't recommend this movie enough....it's a little gem!

The fireworks on the Evansville riverfront were spectacular!

July 3rd WIKY Morning Show

With the ban on persoal fireworks, we invited Mayor Lloyd Winnecke to join us to talk about that and also the Evansville Fireworks show.  He said that as of right now, the riverfront fireworks show is still on, but he's in constant contact with the fire chief and if the wind condition pose a real threat to public safety, he'll pull the plug. But as it stands now, the show will go on as planned in Evansville.  The Newburgh fireworks show, however, has been cancelled.

The big news out of Hollywood over the weekend was the report that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. She also filed for sole custody of their daughter, Suri....what is THAT about? I found this article interesting....seems that Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Holmes all filed for divorce from Tom when they turned 33! Coincidence? Hmmmm.

**  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!

** 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!

**  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.
