I have dain bramage – told listeners to turn their clocks BACK. Caller set me straight. Had to issue a correction. Gah!19 sec.

Greetings,

<Stoner Alzheimer’s or Allegra-D fog? 19 sec.>

Gaah. Started off last week’s show with a fumble. It’s spring forward ever, backwards never. I advised listeners to wheel their clocks back!

So if you listened to me you would have been running behind two hours on Sunday.

Welcome Spring!

bless, robt
