The railroad overpass that connects Old Town to Downtown is set to get a new facelift. When I was a teenager there was no "Old Town" so that overpass was just another part of Douglas that we cruised to pickup girls. People would rev the engines of their cars when they went underneath because the sound was so resonant. It was awesome!! As recently as after the Motley Crue/Alice Cooper show I drove underneath it and people were doing burnouts.
I know you might be sick of seeing people doing the ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" but you can't deny the positive effect it's having on the fund raising and awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
I admit that I like Skeeball, even though it would be cheaper to just buy the prize awarded, than to win it. On vacation Tuesday I played a game where your skill at skeeball results in horses advancing to the finish line. I was with some friends who reunite at the arcade in Manitou Springs every once in awhile and make it a point to "play the horses". I had never seen this game. apparently I don't get to carnivals often enough. Phil says he not only as seen this, he's run it and it's called "The Derby"! Have you played this game as an adult?

A few weeks ago we took an online poll and asked our beloved listeners what businesses they'd like to see come to Wichita. At the top of that list was MACY'S. I am so EXCITED! In an effort to woo MACY'S back and enjoy the jobs and affordable, great, merchandise they'd bring along, we are having a MARCH FOR MACY'S. Join us and bring a friend with you! On Friday, 9/5 at 11:15am, we will assemble at 2nd and St.Francis in the parking lot with the Rotary Clock Tower. I will bring the signs, you can bring one too, if you like. The Thunder Dance team members will teach us a little super simple choreography and at 11:45 we will being the MARCH FOR MACY'S..an easy processional down St. Francis to Douglas. We will cross Douglas and head west down Douglas to the little stone park directly EAST of Century II. That is Finley-Ross park. (it's a half-mile walk).There, we will do a little dance, say a little pledge, and get down with Macy's! Santa may even show up....Please shoot me an email at email@example.com and let me know you are going to be part of the MARCH FOR MACY'S. If you cannot come on Friday (peeps on Facebook requested Friday), we may have an assembly without the march the following Saturday at 11am and video that too. That assembly will be at Finley-Ross park. THANKS SO MUCH! Questions? Please email me. PLEASE don't think someone else will do it, we need you!~ Jan
As far as I'm concerned, Robert Plant is one of the few classic rock artists that is still making music that matters these days. One of the reasons he doesn't want to do a Led Zeppelin reunion is because "the expectation would be too high." I totally agree. Robert and his band The Sensational Space Shifters, have revealed a full list of dates for their 2014 North American fall tour in support of the upcoming album, Lullaby and...the Ceaseless Roar. The seven-show trek includes a stop in Denver Colorado!
