It's an ongoing process, after all.

Our local JACK (KJOK) is playing "Funkytown" this very moment :)

Well, I'll be damned.

Now if they could just manage better than a 0.6 rating, they might be around for a while. Then again, Arbitron doesn't have a semi-reliable method for measuring Webcasts, and I suspect rather a lot of Jack's listeners are resorting to the Web rather than try to pull that absurdly-weak signal out of the background noise. (I get no trace of Jack north of Waterloo Road.)

Ugh. Hide-chapping is one of those figures of speech I can't wrap my head around.

The fungus article was interesting--I also read a bit about that in a mycology text I finished last month.

What really chaps my hide is when somebody hides my chaps.

</old joke>

I have! My Grandmother lives in Guthrie. I assumed that on my trip to see her I would have to change stations.
Surprise of surprises it comes in nicely in Guthrie.

I saw the 0.6 rating. I hope they don't freak and cut and run because of it.

Now I'm confused (a not infrequent occurrence). When I first saw the term "noodling", I thought of the foam flotation aid that kids use while swimming, but then I saw that "noodling" was listed under Fishing. What is it?

It's a form of fishing that eschews fancy equipment like poles and lines.

Picture here.

It appears that "noodling" is a form of "extreme" fishing (I suppose it's more sporting than using dynamite!). Thanks, Charles.

Oh yeah. I saw a bit about that on "Country Fried Home Videos" a couple of weeks back. But I don't remember it being called "noodling" on the show.

Thanks for the referral link. Got another "error" posted today...
