[EDITOR'S NOTE: THIS POST IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED.  CHECK BACK for THE COMPLETE SHOW NOTES AFTER 3:00pm TODAY.]

6 AM Hour

Keeler is sleeping in - well, kind of.  Bill is participating in a sleep study at the Mohawk Valley Health System Sleep Center to determine whether he has sleep apnea or a sleep disorder.

Kitty Logan from Fox News joins us to discuss the latest on the terror attacks in Belgium.

Tonya J. Powers talks about the 25 pieces of audio being added to the Library of Congress.  Some are songs but there are other pieces of audio that are memorable - e.g. George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can't Say on TV."

We'll talk about Apple security and the FBI.  Does the government really have the technology to break into the iPhone of the San Bernardino terrorist?  Has it had the technology all along?

Keeler is awake and in studio!  He is earlier than expected and said that he went to bed much earlier than he usually does.  He had no "weird" incidents during the night.  Producer Andrew suggests that the reason that Keeler has night terrors is because he usually does not get enough sleep.

There is a battle on between Glenn Beck and Matt Drudge and between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

There are some weird news stories out there, including one woman whose home was torn down by mistake.

7 AM Hour

There is a new twist to the Free Money Question of the Day.  Rules are listed on our website.  John from Utica is the first to try and...he wins $200!  Marty calls to challenge the answer.  And Marty is just the first...a bunch of people call in to talk about the finale of the television show M.A.S.H.

Happy Birthday to:

  • Cindy Noriega
  • Dave Rowlands from Utica

The birthday cake from the Florentine Pastry shop birthday cake goes to Dave Rowlands.  Congratulations!

 

We speak with Oneida County Assistant District Attorney Rob Bauer who is running for the Oneida County Court Judge's seat being vacated by Barry Donalty.  He faces former District Attorney and Congressman Michael Arcuri in that race.

 

Comedian Ralphie May joins us to talk about his upcoming appearance at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino.  He was going to call the show a day ago but got held up at the airport because of the terrorist attacks in Brussels.  But he'll talk about that:

8 AM Hour

Broadcaster Glenn Beck, a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, said that evangelicals are not listening to their God if they do not vote for Ted Cruz.  The comments were apparently made during several rallies for Cruz in Utah.  Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report called attention to statements at the rallies.

John Naegel of McCraith Beverages is in with Adirondack Brewery's High Gravity 12-pack.

Utica on Tap is coming up and there is still time to get tickets.

We try another Free Money Question of the Day.  Rick from Marcy calls in.  He plays for $100.  He gets a gift certificate for Carmella's Cafe.

Mark Caswell, Jr. from the Utica Comets joins us on the telephone to talk about the new song from the Street Rock Mafia and, of course, the Mohawk Valley's favorite AHL team.  He says that it is a tough run right now for the Comets.  There have been 46 consecutive sell-outs for the team.

Bill talks more about his sleep study.  He had more wires attached to him because of the fact that he has an issue with night terrors.  He will post the photos on wibx950.com later today.  He FaceTimed his wife before he fell asleep.

The man in the tree finally came down and was brought to the hospital for a mental health evaluation.  Keeler remembers the Woodstock concert in Rome.

Joe Gargiola has passed.
