Two Divas in a Battle Royale

Two Divas in a Battle Royale!

WELL!! How ’bout that zany Etta James?  For those that haven’t heard, Etta is BAGGING on Beyonce Knowles who sang “At Last”, which is arguably Etta’s signature song, at a recent Barack Obama Inaugural Ball in Washington D.C.  Etta is saying “How dare Beyonce sing HER (Etta’s) song?  I’ll whup her *ss!”  You can check it all out HERE.  We played you the classic Etta “At Last” this morning and I gotta tell you, Beyonce’s no Etta.  ‘Nuff said!

The other bit in the news today that we found funny was the passage in the U.S. House of Representatives of the plan to extend the deadline for the conversion from analog to digital television by four months.  Apparently the government screwed this one up as well, and there’s millions of people not ready for the conversion because they either couldn’t get a coupon that pays for the converter boxes or the stores are all out of the units.

Congressman Bart Stupak voted for the measure, and according to a press release from his office, he has been critical of the effort from it’s beginnings.  If you click HERE, you can go to our interview section to hear his comments on this bill, which is expected to be signed into law by President Obama very soon.

The whole fiasco simply proves the one thing we all know here at our humble show…”Radio Rocks and TV Blows!”

See you all tomorrow!
