Thursday Show Prep – To Do List Edition

From the “It’s never too late” file: An 89-year-old woman who had never seen the ocean or mountains is now trying to visit all of the 61 national parks in the United States. I’m not going to be as eyeroll-inducing as to ask what your bucket list would be, but if you had the time to tackle an epic trip, what would you do?

A driver involved in a crash is accused of offering the victim free food from Chili’s Grill and Bar if the victim did not call officers to the scene.

An Arkansas woman claims she repeatedly failed a sobriety test during a traffic stop because her brother gave her a sandwich laced with meth. Nice to see families doing things together. She was pulled over because she was driving with her heads lights off. Because criminals are morons.

A teacher in Pennsylvania decided it was a good idea to give a homework assignment for first graders that involved two people running from the police.

Keith Conrad got his first job in radio in Huntsville, Alabama the day after the 2000 Presidential election when he was a freshman in college. He’s produced radio shows in Huntsville, Milwaukee, WI, Atlanta, GA and finally back in his hometown of Chicago. Currently he lives in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood steps away from the Red Line. The train goes by so often you don’t even notice it. Keith has been dabbling in the Internet arts for a while now, in various roles both professional and just for fun.
