Jim posted this in Yellow, so it was heard to read:

Good Morning, WION "Early Risers!" Rain today, supposedly ending around 3PM. Penny will Join us, making it the PB&J Show again today. (Ever notice how she gets first billing on Wednesdays??)....and we'll work on our wake up call...."Sweden has more WHAT in proportion to her population than any other country?" Our clue from last week: "Sometimes sharp, but usually FLAT"....

Let's hear from you this morning! Phones open around 7 AM at 616-527-9466 or e-mail to "morning@i1430.com" and you could win a Burger of the week from the Lamplight Grill or, for "far away" (streaming) listeners, a $10 Amazon dot com gift certificate!


And the reason I get top billing...is because I do the work to fix things and make it easier for everyone to know what is happening in the WION Community! LOL

It depends on the theme you're using and there were no complaints previous to our upgrade. I love what Scott's done for our site, and we'll be adapting and changing as well. Sorry for your difficulty. Try a 'dark' theme and it'll be fine for reading older entries. There's some adapting to do to the new site, and we'll be doing some as well. Scott had a "custom" site for us in the past if you read his post. With all the possible combinations of colors and themes there's no way to know HOW you view this site on your particular PC. Again, we're sorry, please, for those posts, temporarily change your theme and you should be fine.

We'll also be SELLING CLUES to the wake up call, with all funds raised going to WION's "Relay for Life" efforts, the event coming in July on the 11th and 12th!

It's Wednesday...Good Morning WION Early Risers! Today you awoke to CBS news, and the OFFICIAL Freefair Anthem, "I Am Cow" by The Arrogant Worms. We play that each day to honor the agricultural roots of our fair. (And despite large protests from the fair board.)....

Our WAKE UP CALL QUESTION returns: A MAN IN FORT WORTH TEXAS ONCE HAD A STRANGE WAY OF MAKING A LIVING.....SOMETIMES EARNING OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS AN HOUR...WHAT DID HE DO? The correct answer good for a burger of the week from the Lamplight Grill in downtown Ionia! (or if far away, a $10 gift certificate from Amazon dot com.)

That is all! (that Jim Carlyle can think-of right now.)

Good Morning WION Early Risers! Let's clear the "fog" from your brains with a new wake up call question:" IN COLONIAL TIMES, OUT OF NECESSITY, PEOPLE RECYCLED SOMETHING THAT TODAY IS VERY COMMON AND WOULD NEVER BE RECYCLED. WHAT WAS IT?" Answer correctly and win a burger of the week from the Lamplight Grill and two meal tickets for the pig roast at the WION 10th anniversary party, September 13th at the Ionia Moose!
