Potbellied bastard Assistant Stavin tripped over and broke my loop antenna. (Bent it in half) Tried tuning in without it and I hear just heavy noise.   >:(

Hearing spooky movie clip now fading in and out as I have salvaged the loop a little bit. Hearing the decemberists now with a song.

Awesome zombie news clip at 0:18

Very grateful for weekday show. Thanks comrades.
