It’s a morning show feature here on Mix 96.9…because I feel like we could all use a little more good news in our lives…all bad news has been CANCELLED – at least for the moment.
- A woman recently bought an old nightstand at Goodwill and found a note inside with her parents’s old PHONE NUMBER on it. It turned out it was her sister’s friend’s nightstand when they were a kid.
- Health care workers and first responders will be honored next month with a ticker tape parade in New York City. The “Hometown Heroes” event will be held on July 7th.

- Last month, a Waffle House employee in Alabama named Timothy Harrison asked for a day off to go to his high school graduation. But then he showed up that morning and said he wasn’t going, because he didnt have nice clothes or a ride across town. His boss and two other employees went to a clothing store to buy him some dress clothes. But here’s the best part: A community college heard about the story. And now they’re giving Timothy free tuition and books.

A thief who stole a van….got waaaaay more than he bargained for! And it is Crazy But True!
According to reports, Jose found a key fob on the ground next to a van that was parked at a convenience store. But this wasn’t just any van….it was a mortuary van…and he probably should have checked for other “passengers” before driving off.
Apparently mortuary workers had placed two bodies inside the van and were on their way to the crematorium. Armed with
descriptions of both the suspect and the van….cops quickly found him and arrested him for stealing the van, improper removal of a dead person and for drug possession. Yes, my friends…it’s…
Crazy But True!
