Podcast Episode 7

Some segments of this week’s podcast were recorded after I got home from Zambrano’s no hitter on Sunday, so my voice is a bit weak, for obvious reasons.

Along with the WGN Radio call of the final out of the no hitter, the podcast  includes a great guest haiku from Steve in Columbus imagining what a 1950’s Presidential candidate might think about one of this year’s big hurricanes.

The opening and closing music is from “Inside Joke” by Little Thom provided by the Podsafe Music Network.  Additional music is from “Hurricane Jane” by Collin Raye, also provided by the Podsafe Music Network, and from ““Ron and Pat” off the album “I Bleed Cubbie Blue” by Kevin Henrickson, available on his website.
