Hempstead Lake State Park and Other Things

This is the week of the year that I live like a retiree.  At 9 AM I drove out to Hempstead Lake  State Park about 25 minutes away off the Southern State Parkway. I took a walk for about 1 1/2 hours and then sat on the proverbial park bench and did some reading.  Here is my radio log for the day:

6:10 AM - 6:50 AM - WCBS-FM Ron Parker for Dan Daylor

6:50 - 7:15 WFUV - Claudia Marshall

7:15 AM - 7:50 AM - WBGO Dan Karcher for Gary Walker their fund raising drive is over

7:50 - 8:15 - Sounds of the Sixties with Brian Matthew.  Since I watched the ball game last night I had to finishing listening today

8:15 - 8:45 - XM Radio - the 50s channel

8:45 - 9:00 WMTR Morristown.  I can pull this oldies station in during the day on my GE Superradio.  Otherwise I have to listen online

9:00 - 9:30 - WKJY Hempstead, Long Island.  Their transmitter is only 2 miles from the park.

12:30 - 1:00 - WCBS-FM Don Bombard filled in for Bob Shannon

1:00 - 1:30  WRXP HD2 - they moved the smooth jazz to the HD2 channel when CD101.9 flipped to Rock

3:00 - 3:30 - WFAN with Mike and the Mad Dog

Here is my reading log for the day in no specific order

I finished Sunday's New York Times.  There is a lot to read there.  I usually read it on the train on Mondays

Voices of Summer - a book with thumbnail bios of numerous TV baseball broadcasters

Bob Dylan - Performing Artist 1986-90.  The section that I read today discussed the 1990 CD Under the Red Sky.  So I listened to that CD from 4:00 - 5:00

Since Lee wore his Johnny Cash tee shirt to school today, he put on a Johnny Cash CD while we ate dinner.
