Casual Friday: First we talked with Angela Howard and Maggie Hunter, the director and star of PACE Youth Theater’s upcoming production of The Legend of Redwall Abbey. I highly recommend the series of novels by author Brian Jacques on which the musical is based. My daughter’s read all 18 of them!
Then the Columbia Daily Tribune’s video game columnist, Greg Miller, talked about the popularity of MMORPGs like World of Warcraft and Second Life. There must be a reason that companies like Wells Fargo, Coca-Cola, and Wal-Mart are setting up shop in virtual reality.
Finally, Kyle Elfrink of sister station ESPN Radio 1580 KTGR gave us his expert analysis of the Cardinals and Tigers games this weekend. His take: Cards win the Series tonight and Mizzou beats Oklahoma by four.
I’ll miss that game because I’ll be in St. Louis for the Greater St. Louis Marching Band Festival tomorrow. In addition to Hickman and Rock Bridge, my daughter’s high school marching band, Parkway South’s Spirit of ‘76, will be on the field at the Edward Jones Dome to compete for band geek bragging rights for eastern Missouri.
Let me hear you at the Dome, Kewpie Groupies!
