MIKE's DAILY PODCAST effizode 282 Thursday April 12th 2012
"Internet Talk Radio For Your Imagination!"
Today was the first man up in space in 1961
His name was Yuri Gagarin, I think that's how you say his name
we should also remember the first dog in space just the same
Her name was Laika which is Russian for "Barker"
she unfortunately died during the flight so that's darker
space history yet the Russians made a monument to her
a dog standing on a rocket is the statue for us to remember.
Today is also Big Wind Day named for the strongest Earth winds ever recorded at Mount Washington Observatory
the winds reached 231 miles per hour
that is some serious wind power!…Nothing matches my dog's wind power…Basil has blown out the doors of the LAST PLACE ON EARTH a couple times! Today we hear from Valentino, Bison Bentley, and Madame Rootabega, PLUS we bring you the segment MIKE RIPS SOMEONE A NEW ONE, and on NEWS RANDOM, is the CD era finally over? Tomorrow we bring you the segment MIKE's ABSOLUTELY USELESS REVIEW, plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer: three people who have no idea what the space race was. They think it was a race for two obese people to try to grab that last available space in a crowded BART car. They're a little mistaken.
