Head Scratcher
I don’t know much about a broadcasting company that competes with Mid-West Family and Magic 98, but when I  saw this headline I thought “this is a mistake.”

ENTERCOM’S WMMM/MADISON, WI midday host PAT GALLAGHER is exiting the station after 21 years due to budget cuts.  His last day is 9/26.
I regularly check out every Madison radio station … AM, FM, Public, Religious, Rock … everything, just to know what’s happening.  Pat Gallagher has the music passion, rapport with listeners and a long list of positive projects for Madison. I guess I should be happy when competitors make dumb moves, but not this time.

Back to School

No kid likes to see summer end, and since I’ve never really grown up that may explain the slight melancholy I feel every fall. Once school got going I liked it.  I liked it more when I had a “good” teacher, which I’ll define as “patient, friendly, positive.”  Second grade Oregon teacher Mrs. Prestegard was that way. 


Gorman & Company now occupy the building where I attended 4th grade.  I remember Miss (BLANK) mainly for her discipline, ordering “20 sentences” whenever we talked without permission.  Thanks to the 10,000 sentences I wrote on the blackboard that year, my printing is excellent to this day.
