Wednesday Show Prep – Ill-Advised Nap Edition

A Houston man charged with murder in his wife’s death admits to shooting her, but he says he isn’t fully responsible because he was sleepwalking at the time. He “accidentally” shot her six times.

Dumb criminal or dumbest criminal? A man who apparently left his wallet behind while stealing hundreds of dollars worth of electronics from a Walmart store went to police to ask for his identification card back.

Shock and Awwww story of the day: A 69-year-old Vietnam veteran is retiring early thanks to the generosity of his boss of over 13 years. He was planning to retire after paying off his mortgage next year. His boss called him into his office and wrote him a check for $5000, so he could pay off his mortgage right then and there.

A 51-year-old man accused of groping a cast member was arrested at Walt Disney World. I know Disney is pretty serious about their cast members not breaking character, but I would imagine they’d probably make an exception in that case. Also, it reminds me of the time my Mom was at Disney and she got a picture with Tigger. As the picture was being taken, he leaned in and said “If another one of those little bastards steps on my feet I’m gonna clobber them.”

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.
