First of the 25th Anniversary shows

The first of a long list of 25th anniversary shows - all broadcast in October 1998 will be uploaded to the podcast on Sunday January 29th.

They are chock full of memories and voices from WXCI's past.

These anniversary shows fall into two basic categories.... The first kind is a bunch of talking and rememberances - the other kind is a smattering of songs they used to play on the air. Due to rights restrictions I had to cut most of the songs - leaving something that sounds like an aircheck tape.

That's the skinny... that's the poop... that's what's coming up next on the WXCI memories pod cast. Look for a bunch of 'em all during the next week. And remember, if you're going to be in the WXCI area on the 25th of February - call them now, or contact Hugh... get some alumni on the air - and if you record your show - I'll pop it on the podcast... In fact... that goes for any show that doesn't involve music. Contact me here, send me the mp3 file or even a cassette tape (I can even handle a reel) and I'll put it on the WXCI memories podcast.

What's a figligee?

I was up on my upper roof today checking out the views as one of my listeners just bought me a remote control panasonic webcam. The view is pretty good.

He's gonna build a housing and test it out then mail it over....

figligee...

You know, I'm not sure. Jean Shepherd made it sound like it was something really special... And it's brass, so you've got that going for you.

Still, I'm sure you know how radio is... something could have gotten lost in translation. In reality, it could be a "Fig Leaf G"... Or a "Fig Lee Lee" or "Fig Loogy"...

But whatever it is... it's coming to you in 12 equal monthly installments, C.O.D... Guaranteed never to rust, splinter or mutate...

So I say... Enjoy!

I 'm sure it was a "Filigree". Defines as something vrey fancy. And Shep, as Rich points out, spoke of a bronze one! Think of it like 'scrambled eggs' the gold colored junk on the hat bills of military and police/fire chiefs.

Right... Filigree... doh!!! I was trying to figure out what "figligee" was... What's even worse is - Jean pronounced it that way, and when you google it - there are about 32 results with that spelling associated with Shep... AND probably another 17 with the spelling of "figlagee"... but "filigree" makes more sense. Thanks D&C... and keep those recordings coming!
