HINT:

 

School may be closed for the rest of the year, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop learning. The word for this week  is contrafactum. Hear me use it in a sentence this Saturday night.

11 Mar

HINT:

What would a Turntable For One St. Patrick’s Day show be without Irish jazz singers, Irish-American jazz singers, and me eating an entire bowl of Lucky Charms on the air? It would be a lot healthier for me and my cholesterol for sure.

HINT:

I think you have several choices. Either the theme is “brain freeze isn’t funny” or “conjoined twins can have fun” or “Valentine’s Day.” You’ve got till Saturday to decide.
