Saturday June 27, 2009: Title Cuts

Welcome to the fragrance free, chemical free, member-funded, hydro-powered, volunteer-run studios of WJFF 

This week we saw the news override each day's big stories: Iranian dissent, Madoff being stripped of some assets before being sentenced, picking up pieces of a downed plane off Brazil, the Governor or SC disappearing to Argentina,  and we lost Farrah Fawcett, we lost Michael Jackson, ed McMahon,  Its a bit overwhelming.
