It’s hard to believe, but this year marks the 36th anniversary of the Chrisman Morning Show. The original show officially kicked off in January 1976 – on the former Twin W (WWPA). After graduating from the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Communications in May of 1975 – I stayed in south Florida for awhile job hunting – ran out of money – came back to my hometown of Williamsport for a short stint with the intention of heading back that fall to Florida. And, I stayed – for 30 years. Now I get around with a walker and can’t eat much solid food.

The cast of characters has changed a little over the years, but Howard Smith was there from the start, and sidekick Rodney (loincloth and all) joined the show that very first year.

Members of the Colorado College Ultimate Frisbee Team took the viral video dance craze airborne during a recent Frontier Airlines flight. It was all for fun and resulted in yet another "Harlem Shake" video on YouTube. This one features a guy in a banana suit, but the Federal Aviation Administration was not amused once they got wind of the stunt. A FAA spokesman confirmed that they are investigating the video with one anonymous official saying the video "looks bad," but as long as it was not recorded during takeoff or landing, it probably wasn't a criminal act. However, if the clip was shot against the wishes of the flight staff, the participants could be charged with interfering with the plane's crew.
Matt Zelin, a member of the team, says, "We asked the staff and they said it was safe." A Colorado College spokeswoman also came to the team's defense, saying they "definitely had permission from the flight crew."
