Okay, I admit it - I like Cher!

I'm a big Cher fan  have been for a long time.  She was on David Letterman Thursday night, and she KILLED!  Watch the video here...

I might be a little tired this afternoon

I hung around the newsroom last night helping with election coverage, and I know that many of you are SHOCKED!  Yes, I am a political junkie and enjoyed every minute.  After I got home, I started watching TV since the races in California and the West Coast were just getting decided, fell asleep in the recliner and woke up in a daze.  So if I'm a little slow or lethargic Wednesday afternoon, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Happy Halloween

As I've said on the air this week, this is not one of my favorite holidays.  But I'm trying to get in the spirit.  Check out the video link on my page to see some pretty good Halloween pranks.

I slept thru it.

Hope the storm didn't bring down any trees in your yard and you didn't lose power.  While all the experts say it was a powerful storm (what did DJB call it, a "land bomb" ) it didn't affect me much - I SLEPT THRU IT.

GLEE

I'm not sure I actually "get" Glee!  Dennis and Diane are crazy about this TV show on Tuesday night on Fox, Channel 7.   One thing I know is that the show and the music are big hits.  Music and songs from the show are always among the biggest selling songs on iTunes every week.  

Elvis back in Vegas!

Monday I played "Suspicious Minds" - the new version from Viva Elvis.   This is the latest Cirque de Soleil show in Las Vegas.  Cirque de Soliel takes the music and adapts it for their performance, and then gets dancers, acrobats and all sorts of special effects.  They did it with The Beatles and it was a rousing success.  If you want more info about it, here's the link to their website:

13 mismatched socks

First load of laundry in my new washing machine, I spend the evening washing, drying etc.  Go to fold and put away, and I end up with 13 mismatched socks.   How can, in one load, the dryer eat that many.  I know, I know, they are probably under the bed or on the bathroom floor, but it doens't bode well on my laundry sorting and doing future does it?

Somedays...

 So I come to the studio at 3pm ready for another great show, and here's what happens:

1) Our music computer is run with a touch screen, which has worked just fine ALL DARN DAY until I begin and it just shuts down.

2) We get a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Warrick County and I've got to get hold of Chad Sewich at 14 for an update.  He's not answering..

3) It's time to do the ATM game!!!!!!!
