A big "thank you" to Comedian Willie Farrell for coming in this morning to fill in for Van. Here you see him pictured in the "big chair" where he felt he was being ejected forward all morning long! Willie does corporate parties, he also performs at The Funny Bone and does numerous appearances in Las Vegas. He will be at the Italian Festival in Western Gateway Park the end of July, the Funny Bone the second week of the Iowa State Fair and back in Las Vegas the end of August. If you would like to book Willie, e-mail Willie at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call Willie at 515-491-0349.
Matt Blake on the Urbandale 4th of July committee joined us in the studio just after the 8:30 news. It's Urbandale's Centennial and they have a huge party planned with Ice Cream Socials, Urbandale's Got Talent, Open Mic Night, carnival rides, a street dance, a huge parade and of course, Fireworks at 10PM on July 4th. Matt says they have gone all out for the Centennial celebration with $25,000 worth of fireworks! To get a full schedule of events, go to www.uniquelyurbandale.com/4th_of_July. Events start already tomorrow night!
Tomorrow on Van and Bonnie, Dave Campbell, Editor in Chief of Wood Magazine and former Radio Tradio Host on WHO Radio, will be my co-host. Plus, we'll have Ed Capen of The Good Guys Car Show and our good friend, Kyle Barton, who will be talking about his time on the Gong Show! Plus there's a chance we will have an Indy Car driver on with us...maybe he can give Leila some "driving tips"!
Have a super day!
