Most Music Morning Show
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.
- A dog who has gone viral after catching a home run ball during the Kansas City Royals-Los Angeles Dodgers Spring Training game. The ball bounced once before the dog jumped and caught it in his mouth. Fans cheered.
- Then we have a happy ending for two teens recently caught stealing from a store at Haywood Mall. The store’s owner busted the boys and gave them the option of being arrested or working for her. The teens and their families agreed to work with the store. The boys returned the stolen items, apologized and are paying off their debt in the stock room.
- Spider-Man Saves a Family From Fire: A family started yelling for help as smoke was pouring from their second story apartment window. A man named Juan used his Spider-Man like skills to climb the building. He started handing the children down to other Good Samaritans. Juan eventually lost his footing and fell. He is okay. Firefighters arrived and rescued more people.
- And students at Drake University, Iowa, raised over $18,000 for their favorite lunch lady who is battling ovarian cancer. Students love her because she brightens their day by saying hello and getting to know them. Marietta says the money is going to pay medical expenses not covered by her insurance, and says “I don’t even know how to say thank you.”
March 27 – 31
Abby & Bill have movie passes to Cineplanet 15 PLUS certificates for 4 premium washes at Tidal Wave Auto Spa in Fayetteville, TN!
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!
Police officers have probably heard every excuse in the book when they pull people over . . . But THIS is a new one…and it’s Crazy But True.
Cops in Minnesota pulled someone over on recently. It’s unclear what the person got pulled over for . . . but it doesn’t sound like it worked. The driver handed them his driver’s license and a “Get Out of Jail Free” card. That’s not a euphemism, it was an actual, orange “Get Out of Jail Free” Chance card from “Monopoly”. It looked worn . . . so the person
probably had it in their wallet for a while, just waiting to do this. Police shared a photo of it on Facebook and said, “Unfortunately the state of Minnesota does not recognize this as a valid document. Points for the effort and humor though!”. and it’s…
CRAZY BUT TRUE!
