Wow! There's a lot going on in Des Moines! Our first guest this morning was Craig Armstrong with the Iowa Speedway. The Iowa Corn Indy 250 is coming up this weekend, June 22-23. Tickets still available at www.iowaspeedway.com. Chris Connelly of the Iowa Events Center joined us just after 7:30 this morning to announce a special ticket discount for Gang of Outlaws (ZZ Top, 3 Doors Down & Gretchen Wilson), $15.00 off a $49.00 ticket. Just go to www.whoradio.com and click on the link. Use the promo code "DAD" now thru June 18th for your discounted tickets. The concert is June 26th at Wells Fargo Arena. Kris Knapp joined us in the studio just after 8:30 this morning to promote the Celtic Festival this weekend at Living History Farms. The date is June 16th, 9AM-5PM. Admission is $10.00 for adults...get $2.00 off for donating canned goods. If you have a military ID, admission is FREE! Randy Lawson did a find job on the bag pipes!
Just a reminder...Thursday is our day to broadcast live from the rubble of the Tom & Roseanne Arnold's "mansion-to-be" by Eldon. You can find driving directions as well as a map on the home page of www.whoradio.com. Friday we'll be broadcasting live from The Comfort Suites Hotel from 5-9AM for Van's big "0" birthday bash. Please join us for some free eats from the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant and if you can, please bring a musical instrument with you to join the all-WHO-listener-band in playing "Happy Birthday" to Van under thee direction of Maestro Joseph Guinta. If you can bring a musical instrument, please let me know by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm not getting many replies...I don't want to ruin the surprise for Van, but if I don't get some more replies, I'm going to have to announce it on the radio so we get some people there for the band (and that will ruin the surprise for Van). You don't have to play well...in fact, it will sound better on the radio if you don't!
Have a wonderful day!
