Today, we have Kerry Junior, aka KJ, perform live in the studio. Have you heard of him? The local singer-songwriter sensation tells his intriguing personal story and also sing a tune or two for Lakeshore listeners.
Also, Lake County Recorder Mike Brown will tell us about a service that his office offers NWI military veterans, something that most of them probably have no idea about.
Plus, we talk with a Casual Fridays listener who told us, AND I QUOTE “I would not live in Indiana if I didn’t have to. I believe there is an above-average number of poorly educated people living in Indiana.”
A 59-year-old Porter County man wrote in great detail about the woes, troubles and challenges in our corner of the state. He spoke of our poor educational system, our ignorant motorists, and why so many Hoosiers see the world through dogmatic, even simple-minded stereotypes.
“I just have the impression there are a lot of middle class people in Porter County and throughout the state who live rather meaningless lives, despite their relative affluence,” he wrote.
Plus, we revisit our newest feature, the Region Festival Roundup, by telling you about thisweekend’s Pierogi Fest in Whiting. It is festival season and here on Casual Fridays, we give you the skinny on them throughout the summer.
All this, plus the randomness of three recent deaths in this region, the hazards of public dozing,the art of apology, the double-edged sword of capital punishment and how to use regrets to motivate yourself.
