The “Most Music Morning Show” is LIVE with Abby & Bill – it’s bright, fun and family-friendly, with lots of music, frequent weather and news updates from WAFF 48, plus traffic reports from Bill Taylor, and up-to-date information about what’s happening in and around the Tennessee Valley!
Our Traffic Guy, also Bill Taylor – keeps you up-to-date on your morning commute, and your trip home in the afternoon by giving you the heads-up on traffic coming in and going out of the Huntsville area!
In the midst of all the negative in the news, Abby will be bringing you some “Happy Headlines” – each weekday morning at 6:45 and 7:45am! Listen to hear some HAPPY news for a change!
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.
- We start with FREE Admission to the Huntsville Museum of Art. THIS Sunday, Nov. 27, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. You will be able to view collections from African American Art and Artists and the final day of Encounters: Visitors can also take part in Museum Store Sunday.
- Havoc Teddy Bear Toss is Thanksgiving night (tomorrow night). Bring canned food donations for Manna House as the Havoc celebrate Thanksgiving by throwing Teddy Bears on the ice after their first goal! The puck drops at 7.
- They’ve been golfing together for years….but these two golf buddies just got back-to-back holes-in-one. It happened on a 145-yard par three. They're 69 and 72 years old, and it was the first time either of them have aced a hole.
- A guy in Florida was using his metal detector at the beach last month when he found a $40,000 engagement ring. And he ended up giving it back to the woman who lost it. He said, “Karma’s always good. Every time I return an item, I find something better.”
Abby & Bill have 5 pairs of the coveted Taylor Swift tickets for their trivia winners this week!
It’s those news stories that are true, but on the “crazy” side, bringing sometime laughter, and other times leaving listeners scratching their heads! Crazy But True can be heard at 6:15 and 8:20 each weekday morning!
A new type of Holiday Porch Pirate that is CBT
These days we all have to be on the lookout….and when you think of porch pirate you think of some random person stealing your packages off your porch….but this porch pirate is way more sophisticated than that. Not only do they deliver….but they steal too!
Law enforcement officials are warning people about crooked DoorDash drivers. who are being caught on camera delivering packages, photographing them for delivery confirmation, and then stealing them. People are posting videos of the DoorDash thieves online. Just something else to watch out for and it’s…
CRAZY BUT TRUE!
