World's Worst iPod: The Stroke by Billy Squier
The song "The Stroke" sounds like an intimate party for one, but despite the sexual innuendo, or because of it, almost everyone who called in this morning wanted to hear Billy Squier's first hit.

For some reason, Kitty gets creeped out by the song...but she was won over (somewhat) after learning that Billy Squier played for a time with Ringo's All Star Band. If he's good enough for a Beatle, he should be good enough to play on the air, at least once.

Added piece of trivia: the bass player for Billy Squier, Kenny Aaronson, is now with John Eddie's band. He's the one with the cool shades in the video.

World's Worst iPod: Disco Duck
We dedicated today's song to Channel 27 Meteorologist Brian Olson and his wife, after we found out he and his wife and fostering a couple of a ducks in their house.

He had never heard of this song, from Rick Dees and His Cast of Idiots, but a lot of other people did, and demanded that this #1 hit from 1976 be played.

This video is almost as awesome as I'm sure Jonathan's puppetry performance was in Miss Treadwell's 4th grade class.

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...

In honor of National Punctuation Day
