Cold Open: It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Here’s a clip of the show that contains elements of what I talked about.
No Redheaded Sperm Wanted
Apparently, the demand for redheaded babies is pretty low. Sperm banks are turning away donors with red hair. Well, I pointed out the neither my wife and I nor my mother and father have red hair, but Amy and I have produced one redhead and my parents have two. Curious.

The recent official break-up of the very influential band REM prompted me to talk a bit about the two times I saw them in concert. Talking about their second show reminded me of the angry reaction I had when a fellow art school student asked if I caught the Bruce Springsteen concert that past summer. What does that have to do with REM? You’ll have to listen, the show is available for download in the archive.
Here’s a clip from REM back in the day.
