Whad’ya Know, July 4, 1998 in Washington, DC!

July 8, 2017

Sorry to be a bit late on the upswing getting this up, but here it is in all its glory, Whad’ya Know on the National Mall, during Wisconsin Week, July 4, 1998!

The planets were aligned, despite the undercooked bratwurst I consumed from WI booth volunteer grillers who had never seen one before, and which set my departure date back home by 2 days.

Tommy Thompson (now there was a Republican governor) was supposed to join us for the show, but his pack of Harley Hogs must have stopped at a few too many roadhouses on the way in from Wisconsin.

The heart-stopping fireworks over the Washington Monument ruined me for pyrotechnics for all time, but it was truly memorable, despite Neil Diamond’s Coming to America, and great fun with the Whad’ya Know clan.


A Walk in the Park with Dad on Call Me Maybe Not 6-22-17

June 22, 2017

                    Anything Can’t Happen Thursday brings A Walk in the Park with Dad, featuring Bella Feldpoodle and Michael Feldman to the always puzzling goings-on at the Facebook Live sensation–maybe that’s too strong–Call Me Maybe Not, brought to you by the good folk at Whad’ya Know Podcast.

It’s more than a man walking his dog, or a dog walking his man. It’s inter-species co-dependence, and that’s a beautiful thing.  Call Me Maybe Not airs on the side of Live on Tuesdays & Thursdays at noon CDT on Michael Feldman’s Facebook page, and should take about 37 minutes of your lunch break.

You can call in for a chance at the Whad’ya Know One-fer Quiz. Also it’s on the Whad’ya Know Podcast mantle on iTunes. You can run but you cannot hide from Call Me Maybe Not.

Call Me Maybe Not–because you just have to go back to work.

Whad’Yo Y’all! 1997 was a very good year–David Foster Wallace on 4-5, the infamous Donutgate on 7-26, Dave Alvin in Pasadena on 12-6 and y’all throughout the year! There are 7 or 8 shows missing from my otherwise flawless cassette collection so if you have a tape (and can digitalize it) please send it my way- -and I’ll include it. BTW this goes for all other glaring holes you see in the WYK fossil record. Thanks!
