Drive Time Divas

I remember as a kid hating the ticking clock at the beginning of 60 Minutes. It meant an hour of painful TV watching/listening while my parents actually sat and relaxed for moment. I mean all that talking about real life stuff... seriously... who cared when an episode of Fraggle Rock was being missed? If you told me if I would eventually become full time "talk" radio-er I would have called you a big-fat-liar. And now? When I get into my hubby's car (yes the stinky one, remember?) I can't spin the dial fast enough from KFAN & 830 to where I belong on FM 107.1 (I still grieve the loss of DRIVE 105 which is now a station with all love songs ALL THE TIME-I could gag). The highlight of the station is the Lori and Julia Show from 3-6pm Monday-Friday. These gals are hilarious and I love listening to Donny try and reign them when things go a titch South (lets just say he works hard). The "Minnesota Brogue" runs thick over the airways, but if you think you sound any different you are kidding yourself. This trio talks the really cerebral, important topics rooted in economics, politics and philosophy (you know JUST like this blog). O.K. seriously think of it as US Weekly (because the subscription is more gossip less real junk and half the price of People) without having to read. Tune in on Sex Mondays' where the mission (pun totally intended) is to teach ya about all the stuff Ms. Hauser left out of 7th grade P.E./Health. They talk celebs, gossip, books (the good one's like Candy Girl), gossip, fashion, gossip and even give you the 411 on whatsup in MSP on the weekends (ALMOST, almost, as good as a girls night out). I mean this gang is really providing a public service the way I see it AND the cherry on top? If you log onto the website now you can sign up to pick a time to listen and if they say your name at 4:10 or 5:10 you can win $1k. If you win we are so going halves-ies on the prize moo-lah. Tune (in Tokyo-try and name that movie) back in tomorrow-for, well, um, I'm not sure yet...

Well, I'm a hundred, so I'm addicted to WCCO 830, splashed with a little KFAN. Never thought it would happen to me.

I am totally with you, but I have to say "LoJ" comes in second to "Colleen and The Boys". Perhaps that is due to the fact that some think I am a boy--I KNOW!! I try to wear pink when I drive the bobcat!
I have to say my kids are a bit more forceful than you must have been with LL and UT cuz we've almost had fist fights in the car over which radio station to listen to--I let them "win" if one of my favorite songs is on.
