There was an interesting contrast, on campus, between my last shows of last summer and this first show of the new summer. My last summer shows coincide with the first days of classes in September. Those Thursday nights find the campus alive and kicking with the students out and about in large numbers until well into the wee hours, enjoying life in a raucous manner! Yeah, baby! This Thursday I found the campus, on the last days of classes, in a much quieter mood. Random students or small groups of students sort of sprinkled by the station here and there. No music filled the air. Term papers and final exams had put the kabosh on the usual Thursday night start to their weekend. Maybe some of them were listening to WCNI while studying?
The first show of the summer schedule went off on an African tip.
