Nothing like unfiltered Camels to cure what ails ya.

KGLO Radio is still on the air, broadcasting from Mason City, Iowa, 1300 on the AM dial.

Spooky

The girl on the left looks just like a girl I used to know. She's only 25 now, but it's uncanny. I'd like to know more about these girls. What kind of beer is she drinking? And why isn't someone cleaning that window? Looks like someone cried for quite a while on that thing and forgot to dry it off.

[That would be condensation on the window. It's cold outside. - Dave]

Label Scratchers

Some habits will never die. The lady scratches the label of her beer bottle. We still scratch those labels off our beer bottles to this very day. Why, I'm scratching one right now!
