boomer1949 On December - 30 - 2009

My alarm goes off every morning without fail; for better or worse, it has a battery backup.  My alarm doesn’t blare rock or  heavy metal, smooth jazz or classical.  Rather than be scared-out-of-my-mind-awake, I prefer “The Voice,” the soothing voice of  Carl Kassel on NPR’s Morning Edition.  Well, today was Mr. Kassel’s last morning news broadcast. Now what? What am I going to do?

Hear his interview with Renee Montagne and listen to his final broadcast:

Carl Kasell: After 30 Years, A Chance To Sleep In

    Besides Carl, Bill Moyers is retiring this year. He will be missed by most progressives.
    Today I heard Ellen Goodman is stopping her column today!

    I remember the day “Morning Edition” came on the air. I was PO’d, the “local” NPR station had a program that I really enjoyed. Well, after 30 years,4 states,every morning, I sorta like it. 😀

    I have three kitties, and although they don’t sleep with me, they are usually sitting outside my bedroom door in the morning. And, mostly on weekends, if I’m not up when they decide they’re hungry, they make quite a bit of noise to get my attention. Meow! 🙂

    Hey boomer!

    I could loan you my two doggies! It’s for sure you would wake up!

    The first thing I am usually aware of is my little black shih tzu, standing up on her hind legs at the bedside, watching to see if I move. If I lay still, she will snort in frustration and go away for a while longer. But if I move, she goes nuts! The unconditional love is incredible! Maybe not the soothing voice you require….but it works! 🙂
