Alive

Nobody tells a story like JR Gach, and yesterday's show was about as real as it gets. Over the weekend near Speculator, the 94 Rock afternoon host took a mistep while making his way from a friend's cabin ---and became so bogged down in the deep snow that he nearly didn't make it out. A good part of yesterday's program had JR describing the incident, which under slightly different circumstances would have left us listening to the Pi show today.

I hate to describe someone's brush with death as great radio, but it really was. He may not be your cup of tea, but Gach is a brilliant monologist ---more on that later this week.
