WIBX Keeler LogoHere’s a wrap-up of Friday’s Keeler in the Morning show on WIBX.   A huge morning loaded with a pretty diverse crowd of guests talking about everything from Nano Utica to Harry Potter.  Plus, Leon Etienne and Romy Low from America's Got Talent.

WIBX VIP Club Gripe of the Day is:  Advanced Medicine
Bill's wife is going through a colonoscopy today...despite the fact that we've come so far, Bill's gripe is the fact that we still need a probe...and not a magic wand like they used on Star Trek.  As far as we have advanced in medicine, these procedures are still somewhat invasive.
