After meeting with the kids, they met further with some of the teachers, this latter session lasting so long as to make it nip and tuck for Tom to arrive at the studio in time for his show.

Mayor Cavanagh issued a challenge to Detroit area newsmen for a game of touch football this past weekend at the Manoogian Mansion. From a 'very reliable source,' we learn that the reason our fearless News Director Phil Nye has had a little trouble walking this week is because he was one of the victims of the 49-0 slaughter administered by the Mayor and his team made up, in part, of very healthy police officers!

Mark Allen will be at the Auto Show this year, appearing in the Chevrolet truck and camper exhibit. Part of his activity will involve conversation with or about rare birds -- really! The tie-in is that these birds come from various sections of the country where these campers could be put to good use. No doubt this will create plenty of comments where Mark is concerned like, "Mark is fo! the..o " Certainly, this will be ammunition for Sean Conrad in the 'feud' these two have had going for some time.

Our Halloween "Spooktacular" prompted a number of calls to the switchboard. One woman listener wanted to know where she could buy the records with these spooky stories so that she could play them on an intercom in her backyard for the kids that night.

And a man called (sounded like he was in an office with a lot of others) congratulating Keener on this different programming.
