Weekends

If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about people and animals acting badly and the wild happenstance of life. In that spirit each night during the 9 and 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.) Here are tonight’s stories:

Man fined for sitting in car during housemate's noisy bedroom romp

Two feet from Clearwater's past, father's funny legacy leaves a deep impression

When Tony Signorini died last year, he left his son Jeff an unusual legacy - one that shows what a deep impression he made on the Tampa Bay area's history. It also demonstrates how difficult it can be for sons to follow in their father's footsteps.

Be sure to tune in Monday through Friday nights at 9 and 10pm if you want to play along.
