Lloyd and Jay just finished up. Woodson on right now. (And Check out his cool T-Shirt for a $50 donation--)
But there's a lot of other gifts for different donation levels (see- http://www.wtka.com/Month-Of-Mott/9714929 )
 
If you aren't in radio range, some other options-
 
The above link also lets  you watch the webcam.
 
Listen Live here-
 
 
 
And for those later, or who haven't been up, new podcasts seem to be up, if not the catalog yet-
 
 
At least 3 Carr and Feely podcasts up so far.
 
 
So, if you're listening, and here anything great you want to comment on, here's the place.
 
They were talking with Lloyd and Jay on the instant media, twitter and all that, and Lloyd said he was talking with Hutchinson about when people were just first getting cell phones even, and only like 10 guys on the team would even have them. One time when a cell went off in a meeting, Lloyd said "The only people who have cell phones are doctors and drug dealers.  And I KNOW there aren't any doctors in here!"  
 
Ah, how times have changed....
 
(Edit: Sorry about the pic size...I've twice changed the width/height parameters, but it still posts at full size.  I guess you just can't contain Charles).

....there was no coaching being done under Rich Rod. Woodson plainly said and I paraphrase, "you could see it during the games, there was no coaching."

 

Woodson is VERY EXCITED about Hoke.

Feely is always a great interview. To hear him and coach Carr reminisce about the time Feely got a late hit penalty on a kickoff was classic.  I hope after his playing career he makes a run at NFL commish or goes into politics because he is one smart cookie.

You can hear the affection for the kids at Mott, the program, and the university in their voices.  It makes one proud to know that we have great people willing to give back long after their playing and coaching days are over and to be part of something greater than themselves.

Like Griese were wondering where the defense was. (He was doing the Illinois game). He's analyzing how Denard will read the defense and make things difficult as a multi-pronged threat.

Go to WTKA.com and click on the Mott thing in the middle of the page.  Near the bottom of the page there is a "Donate Online" link that will take you to an official UM page.  The only issue with it I saw was that I gave my $50 and I'm not really sure if I'll get a t-shirt since it didn't say anything about it and there was nowhere to put size.

1-800-559-2657.  Since you'll be talking to people, you can make sure you get the gimme gift you want.

And the link: http://www.wtka.com/Month-Of-Mott/9714929  Click the highlighted "here."

[Forgive the big font.  Came with copying the 800 #.]

PS: They added a signed "bling" Woodson jersey, with his name in something flashy/sparkly (sequins?).  $1,000 donation.  Adding things as the day goes on.

Just read an article about the Griese/Hutchinson/Woodson golf fundraiser on the Freep.  (I know, sorry).  Their goal this year is to raise $1.2 million, which is $200,000 more than they raised last year.  I just think that the university is so very lucky to have such generous alumni like the three of them and many more.  One thing I found interesting is that Brady Hoke took the time last year to participate in the event even while he busy with coaching at SDSU. I think that says alot about the man.
