Item for this week’s Ripped From Today’s Headlines segment:
A woman with her boyfriend and toddler in tow visits the zoo in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. She gets the idea she’s gonna feed the bear, and crawls over several barriers to do it. She sticks her hand in the black bear cage, and the bear chomps down on her hand, biting off the thumb and a couple fingers. Her boyfriend gets bitten trying to pry the bear’s jaws open. The accompanying news article offered that police suspect alcohol was involved. Jean recounts this story during the show, then editorializes:
The mad man returns! Abbi was frazzled from staying up all night getting ready for her lecture later today so Doug the Thug is back by popular demand. (His). The show digs deep into electronica with lots of local artists including some semi-rare tracks from Prince. More craziness is available at www.dougthethug.com
Two releases to check out if you like Sunny Day Real Estate or The Stone Roses or other dreamy rock music with big swells of sound: The Besnard Lakes and The Morning Benders. Both albums came out today, and we heard them back-to-back in the 6:00 hour this morning. We also heard new live Ben Harper Relentless 7, new Clogs, and local music from Dark Dark Dark.
