Monday Wrapup

Tom and I enjoyed hosting our monthly Listener Lunch at Edna Valley Market on Monday and thanks to Delron for serving up another great buffet on the patio. We’ll do another one in late April and start signing people up this week. Meanwhile, check out EVM for breakfast and lunch — great soup, sandwiches, salads, etc. Good food. Cheap. In and out. The kind of place radio people can enjoy. Corner of Broad and Tank Farm in SLO.

Ben Greenaway is off on a well-deserved vacation starting Thursday. He’ll head back to Germany with his wife who is from there. Our own Tom Madsen will be helping to fill in on some days during Ben’s absence so Tom will be doing double duty on a couple days this month.

Very pleased with the show today. Dr. Louise Murray, director of medicine for the ASPCA, called in from New York and fielded listener phone calls on the pet food contamination issue. Very disturbing news in that even pet treats have now been found to be infected. The problem, according to the doctor, seems to be in the wheat gluton and experts think that the wheat, from China, is contaminated, perhaps by pesticides. I would encourage concerened pet owners to check out http://www.aspca.org to get the most-up-to-date information.

We also had a lively discussion with Cathe Olsen, who admitted she wasn’t the best mom for homeschooling and she’s glad her two daughters are now in public school. But many parents called in to sing the praises of homeschooling.

Assemblyman Sam Blakeslee sounded hopeful that there will be a positive resolution for employees at ASH and he surprised Tom and I when he came out firmly, as a Ph.D, on the issue of global warming, saying it is a serious problem that had to be addressed. He also predicted that California will be seeing a lot of the presidential candidates now that our primary has been moved up to February 2008.

Kathy Orton and Teresa Tardiff also put the community spotlight on CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, a very important group of volunteers who speak out for children caught up in our local court system. CASA needs volunteers, especially men. To volunteer, donate, or just to find out more, check out http://www.slocasa.org.

Program note: Michele will be back on Wednesday at 6 to discuss the most events surrounding the U.S. Justice Department. Gordon Mullin has also been added for the 13th to call for a revised U.S. tax structure.

    Sitting on “the other side of the glass” gives me a unique advantage in that I can be somewhat dispassionate in my view of Dave’s show each day.
    Yesterday, as Dave noted, we had Sam Blakeslee on and I was personnaly impressed with the frankness that he used to discuss every subject that was brought up. Most politcians will, at some time, equivicate on some subjects. Sam was very forthcoming and really made for an intersting hour.
    I was very dissapointed that Danny boy did not find a home as he would be the ideal cat for almost any household. I hope that you would go take a look at him. He’s definately worth the time.
    We are hoping to add some new wrinkes to the show over the next few months and we’ve got some terrific ideas working to further your enjoyment of the show….so “Stay tuned”.
    Caltrans is adding several new cameras along the 101 corridor and this will be a definite help in our ability to get you home safely.

    Blakeslee believes in global warming? Didn’t he run as a conservative? Sounds like he’s been hanging around Arnold too much.
