My radio show is short and earlier today…

Shepherd University is loaded with alumni this weekend and there is a home football game which is covered on WSHC starting at 11 AM. That means that my show, Talk To Me, is only 1 hour long and starts at 10 AM.

I’m putting my short list of songs on my playlist now and that will keep me from blog posting until I’m back home after 10 AM.

If you want to listen at 10, but are outside of the fifty mile or so tuning radius for 89.7, you can listen live on the WSHC  web site: When you get there, click on “Listen Live”.

I am so mad at CBS…

I absolutely hate Sunday nites when the creeps at CBS schedule 60 Minutes (which I wait for all week) at 7:00 PM and I make plans for my evening around it … then they let Football run over it’s time and change the schedule by one hour at the last minute!

The trick, of course, is that they think I’ll stay with CBS all night... so I’d like to tell them that a.) I don’t like football and b.) I have no problem turning off CBS and watching other Networks or Cable stations. I do feel very unsatisfied when my 8:00 PM plans have to be put in a “choose or die” mode if I have to watch 60 Minutes out of sequence (tonite I chose to watch Once Upon A Mattress on the Ovation Channel… and I didn’t feel like breaking away from it. It’s one of my favorite musicals.)

I think they should program football earlier in the afternoon since they ho it will, as it always does, breach the 7:00 PM deadline. I am not the only person who thinks so…I’ve brought this up before over coffee with friends and they feel the same way. So if you are listening, CBS, don’t turn off your audience of you don’t have to. It is unappreciated.

So what do WE do on Superbowl Sunday?

As many of you know from past years, Elly and I have absolutely NO interest in football. And, while as designers and production directors, we get a kick out of the commercials that are made for the Superbowl,  they will be rerun on other television shows and on the web in a “let’s compare these things” kind of situation and we can see them there.

The sun has come out today and we have about 26 inches of snow to shovel and get off our cars… that will take up some time. This is also, usually, one of the best movie days on television… plus C-Span radio replays all the Sunday News programs (which, even with channel switching, we don’t see all of) in sequence in the afternoon… a great service.

I’ve got lots of Hunting Of The Snark jobs to work on… and speaking of jobs, I have my daily search of the online classifieds for work and probably three or four applications to do there.

So Superbowl Sunday is just like most Sundays, except that most of our friends and neighbors are crazy.
