today's headlines:

  • a bill in Springfield would let police sieze guns from people considered dangerous,
  • four days of bike racing in southeast Iowa begins today,
  • and the Channel Cat begins its 24th season today.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
