Cassingles and Freaky Beach Things

You know it’s going to be a good week when you get to play Def Leppard first thing in the morning. Since Wally’s away, I get to play “DJ Jazzy LBF.”

This weekend, I found a stash of music from the ‘80s, which inspired my “Cassingle from Home” today: Def Leppard’s “Photograph.”

Hello 1983, Z. Cavariccis, Aqua Net and crop tops. How I’ve missed you so.

In case you missed “3 Things with LBF”, here are the three stories you need to know today.

1.) Planning a trip to Switzerland? Does your vacation include prostitutes? Well, you are in LUCK, buddy. Because Zurich is set to open a series of drive in “sex boxes,” which will provide “a discreet environment for prostitutes to meet clients.” What a country.

Basically, a “sex box” like a small garage on the side of the road. Prostitution is legal in Zurich, but the country has struggled with sex-trade related violence because people who HIRE women to have sex with them aren’t usually the pillars of society.

Anyway, they’re open to the public starting August 26. And dude, if you don’t have a car, you are out of luck. The fine folks on motorcycles and pedestrians have to find someplace else to kindle a roadside romance. Also, if you don’t have a car, you might want to save your pennies for things other than a prostitute.

2.) Yeah, this happened. And my guess is someone is going to get fired.

“OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (AP) — Residents in a Connecticut shoreline town say they were startled when the local public address system instructed them to seek shelter because of a terrorist attack.

Police in Old Saybrook say the message was sent out by mistake over loud speakers around town Sunday afternoon, after a public safety dispatcher made a series of errors. Town authorities sent out reverse 911 calls to residents telling them there was no terrorist attack and apologizing for the error.

Town officials say they’re investigating the dispatcher’s actions and taking steps to make sure the same mistake doesn’t happen again.

Some residents say they’re concerned that someone could make such errors.” - Boston.com

3.) Going to the beach? Have fun, but watch where you fall. This story has officially messed me up.
