What does Gabby have to say?





Saying Good-bye to the East Side.

Come July 4th, I will do something I never thought I'd ever do. I am moving to the West Side.  Gas prices and the beltline have finally done me in. I have been in Madison for the majority of my 30 years in Wisconsin. I first moved to  Sun Prairie to work at  92 WMAD back when it was a rock station. At the time, there was nothing but green space between SP and East Towne. I have lived near Woodman's east, near Oscar Mayer and for a very long time, in the Monona area. In fact, I have lived in my apartment for 12 and 1/2 years, longer than I have lived in any one residence in my life. I loved the East Side, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. I have a  LOT of stuff. I have things that were in my parents house that I inherited when my dad moved out here from NY. I have furniture that was his when he passed in 2005. Tim actually moved in HIS stuff ( how dare he! ) in 2006. Here are just SOME of the boxes:   

  

                                                        

We have 33 crates for the records and CD's, and probably 15 boxes of books. Thankfully, we are moving into a large townhouse. Wish us luck!

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
