Sunday Nights Beginning @ 11e/10c/9m/8p ::Obvious World::

50 million years ago, dolphins were land dwellers. Today they live in the waters of this great planet, yet continue to breathe air. The earth's rainforests provide a sizeable chunk of available oxygen and also help to regulate the temperatures and weather patterns of our planet... Scientists have recently proposed that dolphins be declared the world’s second most intelligent creatures after humans, suggesting they are so bright that they should be treated as “non-human persons.”

IF the ability to leave land and live in water is any indication, dolphins could be even more intelligent than we humans are. This broadcast is in honor of the oxygen-bond we share with dolphins as well as our collective dependence on the sanctity of our rainforests. rock ON

Bloggers to Authors on this week's GREAT TASTE

Ariella Elizabeth-5 days oldAriella Elizabeth Severin is the sole reason last week's GREAT TASTE episode came from our archives.  I can ecstatically report that she is a terrific eater; weighing in at 5 pounds when she left the hospital and tipping the scales two day's later already back to her birth weight of 5 pounds 7 ounces.  As a proud and thankful first-time nonno (grandfather in Italian), I look forward to many meals together as we explore the diverse and delicious world of food.   


Bob Dylan - singer-songwriter, author, artist, Grammy/Oscar/Pulitzer-winner and pitchman for Victoria's Secret, Cadillac and Pepsi - turns 70 on May 24.

He recorded his first album in 1962 and has released an average of at least one album per year ever since.  Counting live albums, compilations and The Bootleg Series the total of official releases now stands, coincidentally enough, at 70.

By way of celebration, this week's entire Whizbang will be devoted to Dylan's best-known songs as performed by other artists, from early champions like Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary and The Byrds to contemporary performers like The Black Keys, Cat Power and Elvis Costello.

And the party will continue on Friday morning from 9-10 AM on my other show, Hepcats' Holiday, with even more cover versions of songs by His Royal Bobness.
