Greg Bishop takes over the airwaves from 10 to noon on the day before the day before Christmas! Tune in for a brief review of the Federal Reserves on their 100 year birthday, the true history of Christmas, and we'll crowdsource for a review of the top stories of 2013. That's all ahead with Bishop On Air only on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Did you miss a show? Get it with the Bishop On Air Podcast.
The Federal Reserve is 100 years old today. Given that it takes $127 today to match $1 of income value back in 1913, should we rethink the impact on our monetary policy? We'll review the run up to the Fed and why there needs to be some more sunshine on the central bank, especially in the shadows of Quantitative Easing.
The Yule Log Resembles What?
A penis ... that's what the Yule Log resembles. The historic celebration (and we're not talking about the 19th or 20th century here) of Christmas have some pretty raucous celebrations that we'll reveal on the air today. For more, check out this video:
We'll also talk about how all that doesn't matter and any holiday, regardless of whatever religion attempts to hijack, should be focused on taking time away from the daily rigamarole to spend time with friends and family and to give to those in need.
Top stories of 2013
This is where you come in and sound off ... What are the top stories locally and nationally? We won't necessarily rank them as much as we will just get them all out. Later in the week, we'll actually open up a poll with the suggested stories to allow for you to vote on what the top stories of 2013 are.
