Been a while since the last Monotony Breaker — as no radio shows to promote since mid-December. However, I think you might agree that it was worth the wait.
This week’s edition of “Oldies w/ the Old Guy” because it takes place on Valentine’s Day — features songs from the years 1957 to 1967 that include the word “Love” in the title. Not necessarily the “biggest” hits (like the Beatles and the Supremes) but the “best” songs — in yours truly’s humble opinion. Check it out at www.titanradio.org Tuesday morning at 11:00 am Eastern (8:00 am Pacific).
In the meantime, w/ all the snow that has been pelting the Eastern portions of North America — check out the Joy of living in Canada –
Finally — a clear explanation as to why there are more Men than there are Women. . .

And finally. . .
The children began to identify the flavors by their color:
Finally the teacher gave them all HONEY lifesavers. None
of the children could identify the taste.
The teacher said, “I will give you all a clue. It’s what your
mother may sometimes call your father.”
One little girl looked up in horror, spit her lifesaver out and
yelled, “Oh my God! They’re ass-holes!”
The teacher had to leave the room.
