VW Micro-Bus Is Officially Dead

Born in 1950, Volkswagen’s “Microbus” has been produced in Brazil since 1957 but will reach the end of the road this December.

Volkswagen will end the run with 600 blue & white models that will be the last made, due to tighter safety regulations that just could not be incorporated into the rig.

Tell Us Your Favorite Blizzard Story

Have you survived a Spring blizzard?

Tell us your favorite story of making it through a big storm. Who knows, maybe part of your story will be a good lesson for someone out there to help them survive in a blizzard.

As I write this, Cheyenne has received about 2 inches of snow from this Arctic blast but the winds are howling and creating drifts more than a foot high in places already.

When I left the radio station Monday night, a drift in the parking lot must have been ten inches deep and the heavy wet snowflakes hurt as they blew sideways into your face. Visibilities on the roads home were diminished to whiteout conditions when I passed Holliday Park on 19th Street.

Over the years, I've lived through several blizzards in Wyoming and have Grateful Memories of many of them. Thought I'd share one, if you have one, share yours too.

Grateful Memories from the LA Memorial Coliseum June 1, 1991

Do you have a favorite sports stadium?

Mine would have to be the L. A. Memorial Coliseum.

When I was growing up, I'd watch quarterback Roman Gabriel and the Rams playing football at the huge structure in southern California.

On June 1, 1991 I was sitting in the coliseum watching the Grateful Dead play.

Sin City is a mecca for entertainers, but one of the best shows I've seen there wasn't at a casino or theater, it was a concert at the UNLV football stadium.

The Grateful Dead played the Sam Boyd Silver Bowl on the last weekend of April in 1991.
