Gooooooooood morning A2K.

And now we have all our staff together and ready for today:

Thanks to Joe for his political analysis of the state of the nation and the world.

To Ceili for that beautifully written commentary on "teaching the world to sing" and to listen.

To portal star for teaming up with eoe in their quest to keep the world well dressed and trendy.

To Raggedy for reminding us of our lovely celebrity's birthday. (who is she, anyway?)

For the delightful pillow talk between Seed and Colorbook as they listen to the midnight specials in front of a crackling fire and soft burning candles.

And................we are humbled by THE PRINCE's appearance all the way from London. Later, we will ask him to give us a detailed financial report, and ask Roger to apprise us of our red ink.

Please review C.I.'s WHO report and keep yourself fit, both with LaCrosse and preventative measures.

WA2K is now on the air with a review of a movie called The Seige. Our researcher, Phoenix, has alluded to the pre cognition of the film earlier in a past broadcast, and to justify her analysis, it's a must see again, especially in light of Joe's political observation.

Let's start the day off with a little morning music from the archives:
"Morning Has Broken" from the ex pat, Cat Stevens.





Allspirit Lyrics
Morning Has Broken
As sung by Cat Stevens
lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day.

Eva's talents qualify her to be manager of the entire complex, and in her capable hands, we will continue with our regularly scheduled programs.

When am I on? I have a whole thing where I proclaim everything is going great and how the French loving latte drinking snobs of the bluish persuaion just hate it hate it hate it.

Oh boy, Eva's our boss. She'll let us have doughnuts and coffee in the control room, but if I see one couqsan... coustant..... one of those French rolls in there I'll go ballastic with righteous rage.

We now return you to your regularly programmed stations.

And now for our trivia flash. For all of you in the US, who loved to shop at Woolworth's, be aware that the Grande Dame of five and dimes' (the place where I bought my first Tangee lipstick) may be a dinosaur in the US, but is alive and well at our neighbors' on the east side of the pond.

Well, Joe, you and Eva must work out some sort of plan to keep our station viable in a competitive market.

Phoenix, fantastic information. Seems to me that there was another attempt to keep the five and dime alive under the guise of Ben Franklin, but I could be mistaken. The demise of the original Woolworth was probably Barbara Hutton's fault; poor little rich girl.

Following Phoenix's trivia report, a blast from the past:

[Fanny:]
It was a lucky April shower
It was a most convenient dorm
I found a million dollar baby in a five and ten cent store
The rain continued for an hour
I hang around for three our four
Around a million dollar baby in a five an ten cent store
She was selling china
And when she made those eyes
I kept buying china until the crop got wise
Incidentally
If you should run into a shower
Just step inside my cottage door
And meet the million dollar baby from the five and ten cent store
Incidentally
If you should run into a shower
Just step inside my cottage door
And meet the million dollar baby from the five and ten
Five and ten cents store


BARBRA STREISAND - "I Found A Million Dollar Baby (In A Five & Ten Cent Store)" lyrics

Until further notice, I shall continue to post the Celebrity of the Day. As you will recall, yesterday's celebrity was Maria Callas. Today WA2K is delighted to wish a Happy December 3 Birthday to:

Who is Madame "X"? Could it be Lana Turner, from the movie of the same name?

And now let's walk down memory lane. I can remember my favorite cowboy, Tom Mix. He spawned a generation of kids wearing rings and badges that whistled.

One of the great legacies left by Tom was the song with which he was connected. In the good old days, a show was identified with a particular product, in Tom's case, Ralston Cereal. The kids of the time took the song, and changed it to suit their own personal needs.

As I remember it:

When it's roundup time in Texas,
And the dew it on the grass,
You can take some red hot Ralston,
And................................................. Laughing

And that, dear listeners, was my generation's idea of a protest song! Laughing

Sad It appears that WA2K censors are already working furiously and would not permit the nude <sigh> picture of Brendan Fraser so this will have to do. Happy Birthday Brendan!

Is that the recipe that starts out:

Take a leek and put it in a pot! Laughing

BigDice, lentils and rampions and rapunzel soups. Delicious.

And now a brief commercial message from a London bank:

Woman: I don't care what kind of new car we buy, just make it blue.
Man: Women. Don't you know there's more to a car than its colour?
Woman: Well, with the pound way ahead of the dollar in England, we can afford any car we choose. Just make it blue.
Man: Hmmmmm. You're right. Er, how about red?
Woman: Blue, dear.

Get a quick and easy car loan from The Bank of England. It only costs 50,000 pounds to have the steering changed to the left side and that includes shipping.
