Radio Wowsville 7/15/12: Crystal Ball

This episode of Radio Wowsville marked the 18th birthday of "our little problem," even though there is some dispute about when RW actually started. We do know it was sometime in the summer of 1994 but that's as far as our research and long term memory will take us.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Wowsville without the dim witted announcer making a major on-air fubar. For some reason, I kept telling listeners that Wowsville started in 2004, instead of 1994. This is wrong - a blatant attempt by an oldster to look younger than he really is. Don't believe him, er, me. It was definitely 1994 because I was still wearing flannel.
