    Shannon, time for a contract. Now! The Fox is no more and will be Alt 93.1. Hopefully you are still going to be on there.

    Uncle Matt, how was the Twister video last night in downtown Lexington? I almost went.

    In case anyone missed it, the interview of the now infamous “Mayfield Tornado Couple” was completely epic! The shirt that the dude is wearing absolutely makes the video, and I get the feeling there have been other times that she has yelled “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” than during a tornado.

    I think it was Jeff Foxworthy who said “If you have been on TV more than five times describing what the tornado sounded like, you might be a redneck!”

    I started at Asbury before transferring to UK. Don’t remember a basketball team, but apparently there is one.

    Well, at least classic rock stations like WQMF are now playing Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana, so Shannon won’t feel too much out of place.

      Both Lexington “rock” stations play the same exact rotation: Led Zeppelin – ACDC – Shinedown – Aerosmith. Repeat until everyone turns off the radio. Maybe we need Shannon.

      Yep, the radio stations in this area absolutely suck. That’s what happens when a company like ClearChannel comes in and gobbles up all the stations and puts forth their formulaic playlists. I have started listening to public radio stations like WFPK just to get some variety and to avoid all of the boner commercials.

      Every time I am in a city outside the state I am amazed at how much better their radio stations are. It’s just sad.

      I used to love WKQQ when I was in high school and UK, but nothing has changed. You can listen to 30 minutes of their music today and it is the same songs they played in 1990. I still listen to Zeppelin and AC/DC, just not the same 5 songs they play over and over. Play some B-side tracks to change it up.

    OK, here we go with the interview…

      That newswoman heard three words out of that lady’s mouth and said “I’ve got a live one here, we have to get these two on film!”

      I don’t know how she did that with a straight face.

    Maybe you can put Pitino in that group, but for different reasons. 😉

    I am a Coach Mitchell fan, and want him to turn this around, but it’s hard to imagine it happening at this point. When I think about how all of the transfers have to sit out a year, and still made the call to go, I have to think it’s worse than Coach was absent too much.

      Agree. Even if he adds some players to the current roster, the pall hanging over the program is going to be a drag on their psyche. I just can’t see them having a very successful season with all of this going on, and it’s going to get much worse before it gets better. I have to wonder if we would be better to cut and run and hire a new coach rather than ride things out like it is now.

    I met Matt at Rupp. He was a nice guy and hell of a journalist and radio host. People just don’t like him; why is that?

    You think Bill Clinton will get himself one of those shirts while he is in the state?
