They call the wind...pretty nasty

As I write this, we still have a high wind warning for about two more hours. So much for the spring preview, the temps are now going down. Good news is pitchers and catchers report today to spring training.

Going to work today, I was glad the current version of the WIXYmobile has better aeronomics than the older version. Made it easier to steer going over the I-480 bridge. Only dilemma was that my favorite morning show was short a body as Sue was taking a couple of days off. Scott had announced open phonelines, but I wasn't going to take my hands off the wheel to use my phone. Then as I was getting off the freeway I noticed the traffic signal was out of order. I turned on the dreaded bluetooth headset and called that in to Scott. I figured he would get it right over the air than the last time I called a traffic incident to a radio station. Cliff Note: I won't mention the call letters, but they call themselves "the big one" and their frequency is 1100-AM.

Anyway I am fighting a case of the "blahs" today. I hope to be back this evening with my latest installment if "I Like....Because." See you then.

Be safe out there.....don't want you to blow away. Still have not figured out your blue tooth? I would not even attempt it myself. :)

Bluetooth may have been a result of too much blueberry yogurt.

Wouldn't be from bleu cheese, because then it would be bleutooth.

Back when Jacor bought what is now WTAM, they took that branding from WLW, which they had also owned, and now Clear Channel calls several 50,000 watt stations "the big one". But WLW is the original Big one.

Tri-State Media Watch said...

Correct. WLW is the original Big One, in fact several stations DO use that moniker, one of them being WTAM.

That out of the way, I was struggling with the wind Wednesday night myself...whew!

We had quite a bit of wind earlier this week too. Knocked quite a few branches down around town, but otherwise we came through OK.
