Join the Conversation on Tuesday, October 21st at 6pm ET as we expand our weekly Birth in the News segment to dig a littler deeper into the stories making headlines today. We'll chat with the author of a new study, the curator of a groundbreaking book, a picketer on the British midwifery lines, and an attorney for the rights of pregnant women. Have a question for our hosts or guests?

UTC Malls Very First Week End, Attendance is NOT Mandatory.

With our weather nothing short of SPLENDID this coming week-end,  you just may want to take a pass on our new upscale mega-mall's debut.  Tune in to The Friday Morning Breakfast Bar from 7 til 9 and hear the Big List near the bottom of each hour.  At least a dozen different options that have nothing to do with the UTC Mall will be presented for your consideration.   Great weekends start on Friday mornings with The WSLR Breakfast Bar. 96.5 FM, stream at or use one of the free listening apps available for Apple/Android devices.

Thanks to the Country Dance and Song Society

Thanks to the Country Dance and Song Society for supporting our Monthly Contra Dance Series.  Come out and join us this Saturday to show your support.  Beginners are welcome.  Contra dancing is very social, you don't need to come with a partner - you'll meet lots of new people and have a good time.  

The Surreal News 9-10 am Friday 10/17/14

Terri Wonder (left), candidate for District 6 Commissioner-at-Large on the Manatee County Commission, will join Steve and Lew this week to offer her side of what has become a contentious campaign fight with her opponent incumbent Carol Whitmore, who was on the show last week.

We will also be getting an update from Rhana Bazzini on her walk to Tallahassee to raise awareness of the broken campaign finance system that is hurting us all.

And as always, more surreal news was made to be reported this week.
