https://www.radioworld.com/news-and-business/news-makers/larry-walk-60-years-of-oom-pahs-and-smiles      Thanks again, Boomer, whom I believe runs this dude's show. I am surprised that he's not huge in Buffalo, NY, where every weekend at least one AM station would do hours of Polka Music. (Some of you WNY'ers know exactly what I'm talking about there, right?) Gotta' give this guy kudos for keeping it going.
Correction:  Boomer runs a show called Oompha Hour. (There, my C.M.O.A..)

I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
