January 29th Show

In our first hour, you be the experts. We've been talking about the economy and your life on a recession. But what are we missing? What DON'T we know about how you are coping in this recession? How are you adapting to a recent job loss? Call in, email, or blog us your comments. Remember, you are our guests. The platform is yours. At the end of the hour, we'll hear audio from Governor Rod Blagojevich speaking in his own defense at his impeachment trial at the Senate earlier today.

Okay, so my favorite football team did not make the Super Bowl this year. But it doesn't matter. There's just something about the lead-up hype and the fanfare football music and the trail mix recipes and commercial sneak peeks that gets you so pumped for Super Bowl Sunday! And now there is more to get excited about! In our second hour, former sports columnist Allen St. John will talk about his new book, "The Billion Dollar Game: Behind the Scenes of the Greatest Day In American Sport" and his year-long journey documenting every nook and cranny that goes into preparing for the big game. What do you want to know about the Super Bowl? Here's your chance to ask. Then, are you a snow wimp, or a snow warrior? President Obama has put the people in D.C. in the wimp category because schools in the area closed with less than an inch of snow on the ground. And he just got here!!! So we close schools at the SUGGESTION of snow. What of it??!?!?!
