Bringing In The Weekend

Spent all afternoon into the early evening at the Arlington Hooters as KZPS was doing their Bringing In The Weekend party live remote.

So sad -- we are sitting at the table closest to where Magoo is broadcasting and it's just cramed full of empty Corona bottles. Naturally I hadn't eaten all day so I had a good buzz going.

Luck smiled on me and my name was drawn -- I love swag. As I got up, Magoo is announcing, "Oh yeah, Raine -- she'll put that Royal Purple to use. This girl has her own bike and she can RIDE!!"

I got a KZPS bandana, shirts, a coupon for all sorts of free Royal Purple stuff (which is exceptional for a bike!) including:

  • 6 Quarts Royal Purple Motor Oil
  • 1 NAPA oil filter
  • 1 bottle of Purple Ice
... and a very kewl DVD I look forward to watching -- The Old Grey Whistle Test. Included on this DVD are live performances by:

  • Heads Hands and Feet
  • Roxy Music
  • Loggins & Messina
  • The Who
  • Judee Sill
  • Argent
  • Average White Band
  • Jim Croce
  • New York Dolls
  • Tim Buckley
  • Montrose
  • Bruce Johnston
  • Nils Lofgren
  • Hall & Oates
  • Joan Armatrading
  • The Adverts
  • Patti Smith Group
  • Meatloaf
  • Siouxsie & the Banshees (YEA!!!!)
  • Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark
  • Aztec Camera
  • Thomas Dolby
  • The Style Council
  • Suzanne Vega
  • Simply Red
  • Prefab Sprout
  • The Pogues
  • The Undertones
  • Squeeze

Cracked me up because my guy from KZPS is oo'ing and ahh'ing over it -- he had no idea they had it to give away.

Tomorrow should be interesting -- depending upon the weather I will either be riding or not. Sunday will be a good day for the Germanfest in Muenster. I think a pretty good crowd is up to riding up there. I've got to get a digital camera!
