HERE’S AN UPDATE FROM THE TURNTABLE FOR ONE SPORTSDESK (12.14.13)

14 Dec

Looks like the final score tonight is going to be Storm Elektra 1 – Turntable For One – 0. The winter storm in the Northeast means I won’t get to the station tonight and we’ll be playing a show from the archive – an interesting show, nevertheless. I invited a special guest-host to join me, plus the CD players revolt and play what they want, and hilarity, as you might expect, ensues.

While we’re on the subject of Winter Storm Elektra…when did we start naming winter storms? Aren’t they just a lot of snow and wind? They don’t have personalities, hopes, desires, foibles or Facebook pages. Do we really need to anthropomorphize everything? Next companies will start paying to sponsor winter storms as they name arenas and stadiums (although Winter Storm Bank Of America sort of has a ring of truth to it.) But if we are going to name winter storms, isn’t that something we could reasonably ask Kanye and Kim to handle?

Something to think about…though not for very long. As you can tell, I didn’t.

Talk to you next week, unless Winter Storm Ford Fusion moves in.

    Wha? They named the flakes? Growing in (or under, as the case may be) Ohio, as we did, we called such weather Saturday. I do realize you get more snow in Connecticut than we do in the lower Hudson Valley, but I agree with you about the hysteria. Less, please. And get back on the air as soon as you can. We need you.
