Some Saturdays I feel like I should start my shift with NPR's Weekend Edition theme and the dulcet vocals of its host, Mr. Scott Simon (pictured). We weekend shift guys need to stick together, you know.
This weekend after Thanksgiving might find you indulging in a long breakfast or a colossal mug of overpriced coffee, which go with Weekend Edition like the Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Anyway, we've got a shortened report today and tomorrow to account for the holiday. Here's the deal: All standing weekend features will run at their normal times, beginning with this one, with the remainder of the posts spread out through the day on the hour, concluding by 8 p.m. There'll be eight items today and tomorrow.
Then, we're back to normal when Luke and Bash resume their regular shifts Sunday night our time. On Monday, I'll show up in the evening with my Kai Ryssdal voice. I swear, that guy reads the news like he's hitting on someone. And by the way, Simon looks nothing like I expected him to. Nor does Cory Flintoff, who I imagined as a cross between Willem Dafoe and Crecente's old nemesis assignment editor at the Rocky Mountain News. OK, now I'm just rambling. Here's the week in original coverage:
