An Amazing Weekend

It's great to live in East Central Illinois.  The Marathon, Ebertfest, a big tournament at the ARC on Sunday.....this is truly an amazing place to live.  Illini Men's Tennis and Men's Golf win Big 10 Championships over the weekend.....wow........

Friday's quiz question answer The Lover in Me.

We're the radio and streaming at 5.



Marathon Morning Requests!

I've talked with so many listeners over the past few days running during the morning getting ready for the marathon.  I will be filling in for Lee Marcus Saturday Morning, so if there is a song you'd love to hear while running let me know on the phone or via email     mitm @ whms.com mitm@whms.com


Kool & The Gang

As we approach the 7,000th different morning show quiz question during our over 8,200 morning shows since we arrived in C-U, I am always amazed at the great response it continues to get.  I love it when we can do a question where I don't get a right answer.......even after 50 calls........yesterday's was one of those days. 

A Day to Stay In My Office

The Cubs beat the Cards last night so the conversation will be lively in our building to say the least........especially around the newsroom.  I'm glad to be a Sox fan.....they won last night.

Yesterday's quiz question answer, The Pwer of Love.\

Have agreat day.

Approaching 7,000 Different Quiz Questions

Sometime in the next couple of weeks I will hit 7,000 different morning show quiz questions.  It is still a lot of fun to write new questions each day.  Some days are very easy, especially when there is so much good music coming out these days.   The connections that are bridged between today's hits and those from the last several decades are pretty cool.

Monday Already?

What a busy weekend......stop by Illinois Field and watched a little baseball......watched The Masters final few holes, Bubba was amazing.  What happened to Oosthuizen's Double Eagle ball is very neat, Brian and I will talk about it.

Friday's Quiz Question answer, Hall & Oates.
