CBC Radio One introduces new afternoon lineup (I Love Radio .org)

CBC Radio One introduces new afternoon lineup (I Love Radio .org):

"CBC Radio One introduces new afternoon lineup
Canada At Five and The Roundup are gone, and a new afternoon lineup will launch on CBC Radio One starting November 7.
Afternoons will kick off with a new daily program called The National Playlist with Jian Ghomeshi. The program is a continuation of the very popular 50 Tracks, but plays more to the iPod and MP3 generation. Every day at 11:30, Jian and Shelagh Rogers will bring together musicians, actors, producers and even politicians to debate which tracks will find a place on the ever-evolving list. From oldies, to classic rock, to the cutting edge of the Canadian independent scene, the audience will get the final say about what remains on the list.
Freestyle, with Vancouver-based hosts Kelly Ryan and Cameron Phillips, will be replacing The Roundup. This national show is an ongoing conversation about things that make the cut at the water cooler -- life, leisure and the newest trends -- mixed with a daily dose of pop music.
CBC Radio will be making changes to local programming in Vancouver, Winnipeg and Toronto by extending the afternoon drive shows, which will now begin at 3 p.m. in these markets.
It will also significantly augment its news offerings in the afternoon. It will add a new national newscast called The World This Hour, hosted by Marcia Williams. It will run at 4 p.m. and again at 5 p.m. replacing Canada at Five. The World at Six remains."

The Monitor Tribute Pages - NBC RADIO

The Monitor Tribute Pagesthe program ran continuously for 40 hours, from 8 a.m. Saturday to midnight Sunday. It had everything -- news, sports, comedy, interviews, remote pick-ups from around the world, music -- a true magazine of the air. Listeners could tune in or out at any time during the weekend, wherever they were -- at home or in their cars. During any "Monitor" hour, dozens of different people, places and things were presented -- all presided over, live, by hosts Weaver called "communicators" in mammoth New York studios NBC named "Radio Central."

If "Monitor" had failed, NBC Radio would have disappeared decades before it did. But it worked -- indeed, it was a smash hit with listeners, advertisers and critics. It quickly became NBC Radio's biggest moneymaker and almost single-handedly kept NBC in the radio business. Simply put, "Monitor" became the biggest thing in radio

NPR : Recalling a Media Pioneer: NBC Radio's 'Monitor': "Sunday, June 12, 2005 � Author Dennis Hart notes the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of Monitor on NBC. Hart wrote Monitor, The Last Great Radio Show, the story of then-NBC President Pat Weaver's attempt to save his radio network. Hart claims Monitor started many of today's media formats, including talk radio."

I Love Laughter - There are three engineers in a car; an electrical engineer, a chemical engineer and a Microsoft engineer.

There are three engineers in a car; an electrical engineer, a chemical engineer and a Microsoft engineer.

Suddenly the car just stops by the side of the road, and the three engineers look at each other wondering what could be wrong.

The electrical engineer suggests the electronics of the car be removed down to its parts and then try to trace where a fault might have occurred.

The chemical engineer, not knowing much about cars, suggests that may be the fuel is becoming emulsified and getting blocked somewhere.

Then, the Microsoft engineer comes up with a suggestion, "Why don't we close all the windows, get out, get back in, open the windows again? Maybe it'll work!?"

I Love Laughter - 2 and 2

A businessman was interviewing applicants for the position of
divisional manager. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person
for the job. He asked each applicant the question, "What is two and
two?"


The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was "twenty-two."


The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a calculator and
showed the answer to be between 3.999 and 4.001.


The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v.
Commr. of Stamp Duties, two and two was proven to be four.


The last applicant was an accountant. The businessman asked him, "How
much is two and two?"


The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door, closed it
then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a
low voice, "How much do you want it to be?"

I Love Laughter - senior personals

FOXY LADY: Sexy, fashion-conscious blue-haired beauty, 80's, slim,5'4" used to be 5'6"), searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion. Matching white shoes and belt a plus.

LONG-TERM COMMITMENT: Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband, and am looking for someone to round out a six-unit plot. Dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath not a problem.

SERENITY NOW: I am into solitude, long walks, sunrises, the ocean, yoga and meditation. If you are the silent type, let's get together, take our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.

WINNING SMILE: Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a dedicated flosser to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.

BEATLES OR STONES? I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my Camaro on Saturday nights and still like to play the guitar. If you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and listen to my eight-track tapes.

MEMORIES: I can usually remember Monday through Thursday. If you can remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.

MINT CONDITION: Male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves. Isn't in running condition, but walks well.

Food Spoilage Test

Food Spoilage Test

FINALLY, a way to know what to throw-out and what to save!

THE GAG TEST:
Anything that makes you gag is spoiled (except for leftovers from
what you cooked for yourself last night).

EGGS:
When something starts pecking its way out of the shell, the egg is
probably past its prime.

DAIRY PRODUCTS:
Milk is spoiled when it starts to look like yogurt. Yogurt is spoiled
when it starts to look like cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is spoiled
when it starts to look like regular cheese. Regular cheese is nothing
but spoiled milk anyway and can't get any more spoiled than it is
already. Cheddar cheese is spoiled when you think it is blue cheese
but you realize you've never purchased that kind.

MAYONNAISE:
If it makes you violently ill after you eat it, the mayonnaise is
spoiled.

FROZEN FOODS:
Frozen foods that have become an integral part of the defrosting
problem in your freezer compartment will probably be spoiled - (or
wrecked anyway) by the time you pry them out with a kitchen knife.

EXPIRATION DATES:
This is NOT a marketing ploy to encourage you to throw away perfectly
good food so that you'll spend more on groceries. Perhaps you'd
benefit by having a calendar in your kitchen.

MEAT:
If opening the refrigerator door causes stray animals from a three-
block radius to congregate outside your house, the meat is spoiled.

BREAD:
Sesame seeds and Poppy seeds are the only officially acceptable
"spots" that should be seen on the surface of any loaf of bread.
Fuzzy and hairy looking white or green growth areas are a good
indication that your bread has turned into a pharmaceutical
laboratory experiment.

FLOUR:
Flour is spoiled when it wiggles.

SALT:
It never spoils.

LETTUCE:
Bibb lettuce is spoiled when you can't get it off the bottom of the
vegetable crisper without Comet. Romaine lettuce is spoiled when it
turns liquid.

CANNED GOODS:
Any canned goods that have become the size or shape of a softball
should be disposed of. Carefully.

CARROTS:
A carrot that you can tie a clove hitch in is not fresh.

RAISINS:
Raisins should not be harder than your teeth.

POTATOES:
Fresh potatoes do not have roots, branches, or dense, leafy
undergrowth.

CHIP DIP:
If you can take it out of its container and bounce it on the floor,
it has gone bad.

EMPTY CONTAINERS:
Putting empty containers back into the refrigerator is an old trick,
but it only works if you live with someone or have a maid.

UNMARKED ITEMS:
You know it is well beyond prime when you're tempted to discard the
Tupperware along with the food. Generally speaking, Tupperware
containers should not burp when you open them.

GENERAL RULE OF THUMB:
Most food cannot be kept longer than the average life span of a
hamster. Keep a hamster in or nearby your refrigerator to gauge this.

I Love Laughter - Dear Spike,

Dear Spike,

I have been unable to sleep since I forced my daughter to break off her engagement to you. Will you forgive and forget?

I was much too sensitive about your Mohawk, tattoo, and pierced nose. I now realize motorcycles aren't really that dangerous, and I really should not have reacted the way I did to the fact that you have never held a job.

I am sure, too, that some other very nice people live under the bridge in the park.

Sure, my daughter is only 17 and wants to marry you instead of going to Harvard on a full ride scholarship. After all, you can't learn everything about life from books. I sometimes forget how backward I can be. I was wrong. I was a fool. I have now come to my senses, and you have my full blessing to marry my daughter.

Sincerely,

Your future father-in-law

P. S. Congratulations on winning the Powerball lottery!
