DECEMBER 4, FRIDAY
I picked up another Christmas music radio station 98.5 FM out of Terre Haute, Indiana and then 95.3 Sunny WJEK FM, Champaign-Urbana also with that music. I need my Christmas shot this time of year. It seems that soft rock/mix stations are most prone to switch to the Christmas format.
Stopped for gas in Mahomet, Illinois, near the southern terminus of Il. Highway 47. While filling up, a car from Iowa pulled in next to me and a whole bunch of people got out, all clad in Iowa Hawkeye attire. I sure knew where they were headed, Indianapolis for the Big 10, 11,12,13,14 Championship game.I wished them luck as I am pulling for them. I saw Iowa thoroughly trounce Northwestern earlier this year.
Made good time as usual on Il-47 heading north and home. But once you get to Yorkville, you start hitting lots more traffic and stop lights.
Of course, nearing Gibson City, I had to tune into their local station, 106.3 FM, Beautiful Music. Now, had you told me back in my college days that I would actually like listening to a "Beautiful Music" station I'd have told you that someone was out of their mind.
But, Not No More. --RoadDog
