Today we check in with Mark Caswell bright and early from the airport in Oklahoma City about the Utica Comets' big win last night. We will also chat with bar owner Brad Bohannan, who was featured on a hit Spike TV show, "Bar Rescue."

6AM Hour

We open the show by talking to Mark Caswell from the Utica Comets. He is the Communications Director and he talks about last night's win and what a great place the team is in. Also, the legendary B.B. King has passed away.

A man has been arrested for allegedly mowing over a family of ducks with a lawn mower and, Bill says, he looks like Grizzly Adams. It leads to the discussion of how to take a proper mug shot and the fact that attractive people are more apt to get away with stuff.
