Andy’s monologue today was a recap of the Top Four Stories of the day. He talked about Governor Chris Christie ordering American and New Jersey flags to fly at half-staff in honor of James Gandolfini just like he did for Whitney Houston. Andy discusses why the flag honor should only be for military or other major events. He also talked about Howard Dean hinting at another Presidential run in 2016. NPR got a major upgrade to the tune of $201 million, wow! He also spoke about the Wall Street Journal’s report that then Senator John Kerry netted Massachusetts an additional $3.5 billion due to an Obama Care provision. I came in studio for a short Bizarre News where I gave details on James Gandolfini’s last meal, an ironic yet probably expected death of a snake expert, an 11 year old father, and the amazing rescue of a falling toddler. Peter Goelz called in to give insight on the conspiracy theories that came out this week surrounding TWA Flight 800, as the Managing Director for the NTSB at the time, he has expert knowledge of exactly what happened.
Will Richard phoned in for the News Wire, HPV free (or so he says…) then Dr. Robert Rosenberg returned to the show to explain the revelation that broke today about Michael Jackson. Apparently he did not enter REM sleep for 60 days before he died, which is a human record. Andy also asked him about whether insomniacs can die directly from insomnia and how much sleep we actually need every night.
I don’t even really want to mention this part of the show because I’m so angry with her but Producer Michelle called in for the Entertainment Report. They talked about SOME of the new movies coming out: World War Z, Monsters University, and The Bling Ring (I DID tell her grr.) They also talked about funeral plans for James Gandolfini, a sequel to one of Andy’s favorite movies Bad Teacher, and Gerard Depardieu’s DUI. I came back in studio to finish the show off with more Bizarre News including Aaron Hernandez being dropped from Muscle Milk and Chicago Police looking for some base jumpers that leapt from the 92nd floor of Trump Tower. As if the Chicago Police Department has nothing better to do!
Have an amazing weekend!
