News - This week we forego Weather (it is raining, still) and Cityscape (which will be available online soon, we have come to know...) and instead embrace the beauty of this early emerald summer of '09. Really, does anyone remember the last time we went into June with this much green around us ~ makes you feel all healthy and vulnerable to the call of outdoor activities.
We collected 8 segues from today's show: One Tyrus and Joni talk about this awfully odd weather we've been having lately.
