Abe Goldstein was our special guest this morning just after the 8:30 news. Abe came in to make us aware that June is National Accordion Awareness Month (not National Accordion Appreciation Month)! He took a few requests by phone this morning and did a fabulous job playing! Check it out on the Van and Bonnie Facebook page...we did a Facebook Live! Abe will also be making his debut at the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market this Saturday...look for him on the corner by Spaghetti Works. Check out his new business card...
Also on the show this morning was Mark Wyatt from the Iowa Bicycle Coalition. The Bacoon (combination of Bacon & Raccoon) Ride is this Saturday morning from 7-10AM on the Raccoon River Trail. This 71 mile bike ride begins and ends in Waukee with 10 bacon specialty dishes along the route. You can register thru Friday at www.bacoonride.com.
Ryan Bickle of the Blank Park Zoo joined us by phone just before the 7AM news to tell us about the Giraffe Building ribbon cutting this morning. This building will house the giraffes during rainy weather as well as all winter long and will be open to the public for viewing of the giraffes! Check out all the new baby animals at the Blank Park Zoo!
Today's mystery sound was the Outlaw Roller Coaster! Congratulations to those of you who got it right!
Tomorrow on Van and Bonnie, we'll have the last pair of Bob Seger tickets to give away...we'll have the Friday morning news quiz and the Iowa Barnstormers will join us to talk about the biggest game ever in Barnstormer history!
Have a super day!
