A new college graduate gets his first job in a hardware store. When he asks his boss what task he is assigned to, the man tells him to begin by sweeping the aisles. "But I'm a college graduate," replies the young man. "Oh," says the boss, "In that case, let me show you how it's done!"

I love the new host. I have been listening since 1975 faithfully. The new show is wonderful, updated, great music and keeping close to the same format. Thanks so much!

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It was a hot day, and lovely, and so much celebrating going on all ‘round. Fourth of July weekend, what marks mid-summer for me, and we celebrated with a cookout and a bunch of brats from a butcher shop where you can find just about any flavor you want. We had tater tot hotdish brats and whiskey peppercorn brats and beer batter cheese curd brats (I didn’t get the blueberry brats, but next time for sure). Oh my. And there were hickory beans and potato salad and corn on the cob, some broccoli salad with cheese and bacon, and for dessert, homemade shortcake with fresh berries and whipped cream. Pretty much what we had last year, and what a time we had together. Read more
This job all began when a shady-sounding outfit named Jack’s Auto Repair called for softball players on public radio. I was on a St. Paul architect’s beer team at the time, making up for my lack of a high school letter in anything. On Jack’s team I became the pitcher. Garrison was playing right field. After some random pickup games we joined an office league. At the team dinner ending the first season I learned our hard-hitting athletic center fielder was a city cop and the fun guy on second base was the director of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Dennis Russell Davies, who is now a musical giant living in Stuttgart. Still smiling, at least in the photos. (Probably not playing a lot of softball, though.) Read more
