May 2, 2006 - Eli Polonsky fill-in for Larry Miller

As I drove to the station this morning to drop off my discs, then drove back home because there's no parking, and then caught the bus back to the station, I was thinking how nice it would be to be doing this at a station with employee parking spaces, and paychecks... but, stations with parking spaces and paychecks don't let DJ's do shows like this!

* Set below dedicated to former Fox News commentator and new President Bush press secretary designate Tony Snow, who was quoted in The Boston Globe on May 1, 2006 as saying: "If strident activism were the ticket to immortality, the truly intense acts of the age - Country Joe McDonald, Richie Havens or (The) Fugs - would be revered as gods. Instead, they have been forgotten for the good and noble reason that their music stank".

Only fitting considering our current administration, eh?
