KU's KC Update

Greetings from Kelly Urich, the most trusted name in hit music!

The 75th annual Plaza Art Festival reportedly brought 300,000 people to the plaza this weekend. The real work of art was parking within a mile of the exhibits. This is considered one of the top 5 art fairs in the nation and many of the exhibitors say it's their favorite. Congratulations to everyone who won free tickets to the art fair on my show.

FYI, Kansas City ranks #16 in the best Art Cities in America, according to a survey from American Style magazine. Minneapolis was #9, St. Louis #22 among cities with populations between 100,000 to 499,000.

Long Distance Subscribers of the Week: Kevin Rolston, West Palm Beach, FL. One of my young Padawans of broadcasting and dark lord of radio BS in Southern Florida. Keep wearing men's clothing KEVIN!! Also, Casey Stealey in Bloomington, IL. I had to email her to let her know she was under a tornado warning Friday. The things I do for our Internet listeners!

Have a great week and be sure to listen to the radio show 3-7 weekdays on Mix 93.3. I have a funny feeling I will be giving away $5,000 dollars this week... But I'm not trying to bribe you.
