    Gah! I can’t believe I almost missed Scoop! I’ve passed by the poster everyday since they put it up! Hope I’m not too beat to see it tonight… Wonder what the chances of a wide release are. I’ve heard it’s the best Woody in years. Nice to hear WXJM again, still wish they’d ditch “Metal Middays.”
