So at the end of last month, I said it was KMON's 75th birthday/anniversary. I chose the date I did, September 27th, because that was the date the broadcast license was issued according to FCC records. The thing is, KMON was on the air months before that date. The difference between when it was done in reality and when it was official according to the government, I guess.
When I was a kid, the phrase 'dog days of summer' didn't mean anything more to me other than a reference to the hottest part of the summer. It was kind of like 'the Ides of March', another reference I didn't get until I was older.
Now that the weather is finally starting to stay nice, grills are starting to be pulled out of storage in anticipation of all kinds of summer cookouts. I'm no different, and I'm sure that's true for some of you as well.
