Sgt Steve Hauck of the Utica Police and Loud Audio
LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Haling Device) is the new tool UPD has to communicate in crisis situations. They're in studio today showing us how it works and how loud it really is.
Post bit: Amazingly, the radio studio walls are incredibly sound proof. Still, we could hear it loudly in the studio. BUT- not nearly as loud as we expected. Somewhere out there I can see a radio engineer saying: I told you these walls were soundproof.
UPDATE EXCLUSIVE: The Dog Dragged by the Four Wheeler
This has been a big story locally, we have an exclusive this morning with a witness coming on air to set the record straight.
Her name was Nickie. She said the whole story is a false accusation. We'll post the audio later.

Bill says he could listen to Dr. Jerome Corsi all day long. Unfortunately, the doctor doesn't feel the same way about Bill. Bill eneded up hanging up on the doctor after the interview went bad. Cori's new book, "Who Really Killed Kennedy? The Ultimate Guide to Assassination Theories - 50 Years Later," explains his theory that it was the mafia that killed the President.
