This is episode 23

Did you enjoy the holidays?

I like Thanksgiving a whole lot more than Christmas.

I'm sorry but when Santa Claus outfits have to fight for shelf space with turkeys and pilgrims outfits, that tells me that Christmas has simply just got too commercial.

Since Canada had its Thanksgiving much earlier than the 'States (mostly because the harvest comes much earlier,) if Christmas intruded in on Thanksgiving there, I'd have grown up a very upset child, what with the image of a fat, blood spattered Santa Claus his snow white beard flecked incarnadine with the very life's blood of his victims, (really, why do you think the suit's red?) holding a dripping hatchet, seared into my young febrile brain.)

"You Upset My Soul" by "Billy Jones" ( ) here on WSPCs ThymeWarp.


We got PSAs:


Campus Safety urges students, faculty and staff to sign up for text alerts, online @

This will be used to inform students, faculty and staff in an emergency.

This was useful last year in the bomb scare.

To sign up, students must know their Spirit ID # (Bring their Saint Peter's College ID.)


There are still no prerecorded promos so I'm going to fake one right now.

How about if I tell you about "Dan and Dave on Sports in the Morning"

"Looking for quality sports talk?

Then look no further than Dan Drutz, our own assistant director of athletics, and David Freeman.

They’re here to give you all the latest news and discussion in both college and professional sports.

If you’re a sports fanatic, you won’t want to miss a second of what these two guys have to say.

So be sure to catch “Dan and Dave on Sports in the Morning.”

Every Tuesday from 11 to 12 noon. Only on WSPC: The Sound of Saint Peter’s College.

I just caught their show here in the studio and its "pretty darn good!".


There are still no prerecorded promos, well except for "moi."

bed: Oilsands by John Jack

Tuesdays at 5 at WSPC:

"Peak Oil" , what it is, what it means to us all (and believe me it does, if you thought that $4.00 a gallon gasoline was bad, (and don't let the election slump and sag fool you,) the price of oil will reveal just how incomodious a commodity it is.

I'll be featuring podsafe music so I can retransmit them on a full-blown podcast, with an RSS feed, on iTunes without having to pay my soul out to ASCAP/BMI.


Now Mr. Obama's been elected, we can get onto the business of hating him for his own personality and his own self, instead of punching at straw men and shadows.

All will return to normal as his promised change is turning out to be the same tired old faces from past administrations, spouting the same time worn policies that we'd already grown tired of and cast from office and into the pit of general oblivion.
