The Van and Bonnie Secret Sound this morning was a t-shirt gun! Check out the video on our webpage...you'll enjoy it!
Today. we did a Van and Bonnie Trading Post for a pair of tickets to the Daryl Hall and John Oates concert on May 8th. We traded for a 12 pound cannon ball! What we'll do with it, we don't know....but we've never had a cannon ball before!
Tomorrow on Van and Bonnie, we'll give away our last pair of tickets to Daryl Hall and John Oates, plus we'll play the Friday News Quiz. Special guests will include John Erickson of Kidsave Iowa and Jim Bohannon of America in the Morning!
Enjoy the day!
