First Day Preview & Fire Up, Chips!!!

In need of some Sunday morning entertainment?  Well, don’t forget about the only local, LIVE, news/talk show in the Great Lakes Bay Region: First Day with Pat Johnston & Hilary Farrell.  Each and every Sunday from 6-9am, Hilary and I bring you the latest, breaking news, the AccuWeather forecast, numerous sports updates, an eclectic mix of Music Minutes, Movie Trivia, a little politics, and some witty, entertaining banter.


This will be the last time Hilary & I will be on the show together for a couple of weeks.  I’ll be in Ann Arbor next week for the Michigan-Notre Dame game, and then Hilary’s taking the Sunday after that off.

Our Music Minutes will feature a bit of an “End Of Summer” theme, featuring the Beach Boys, The Motels, Green Day, The Dirty Projectors, The Beatles Minute at 7:57am, and “Hilary’s Song Of the Week” at 8:45am.

I’ll have a tricky Movie Trivia at 8:40am, and I’ll have a poignant “Pat Political Point” at 7:40am.

Hope you have a relaxing Labor Day holiday weekend, and I can’t wait until those kids have to get back to school on Tuesday!!!
