Another week when we may have some late starts because of Blackhawks playoff games.  But, as we've said before, HEY, THE BLACKHAWKS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!!!!!!!!!

Also, another reminder that, in addition to this blog, you can find us on  Twitter, on Facebook and our Yahoo group

Plus, don't forget our current Monthly Photo Challenge.  We're knocked out over the photos listeners have been submitting for our current subject, "Signs Of Spring."  If you haven't taken a look at some of the great pictures, check 'em out and submit one yourself.  We'll announce a winner and next month's subject when ace photographer/photo educator, Will Crockett, joins us on May 18th. 

OK, so, in addition to covering and disecting any breaking news, what are some of the things we're planning for this week? 


This week our New Music Monday "Magic Laser" lands on Amanda Shires' latest album, "West Cross Timbers."  This is wonderfully unusual stuff from a wonderfully talented lady.


Unless there is another last minute reprieve, by June 12, 2009, all full-power TV stations will broadcast only in digital.  To make sure you're prepared and answer any questions, we welcome back The Video Guru, Michael Silbergleid.

New or used car questions?  Still trying to figure out what the heck is going on with the automotive industry?  Tonight Consumer Guide's Publisher, Frank Peiler and Associate Publisher, Tom Appel join us.  They'll try to sort it all out, give us the scoop on some of the vehicles they sampled at the Midwest Automotive Media Association's Spring Road Rally and answer your new and used car questions.
