Unfortunately, this morning I had to work. As I was sitting in my big rig, I was flipping through the stations to find something good to listen to. I wanted to find something uplifting, but didn't think I would, considering the lousy radio reception we get in our rail yard. However, before long I found that 101.9 fm plays the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast from Salt Lake. I listened to little of it, as most of my job this morning was outside loading. I did happen to catch the tale end though. I heard the classic farewell from Lloyd D. Newell in Salt Lake City just before the radio station went to a commercial break. What was the first commercial to be heard? Budweiser - real men of genius. It made me laugh.
