MA anchor Robert Bradfield finished up this broadcast with one of those obligatory warm & fuzzy end-of-newscast features that are supposed to make people appreciate the cute little stories from the animal kingdom. You can chuckle right into Saturday's Thomas Dostal Developers Baconfest with his maniacal laughter.

Wonder if he still has that news gig. I'm also which of our fabulous bacon varieties will be the biggest hit with KRNA listeners at NewBo Saturday. There are several bacon-infused ice cream treats that I'm going to devour. If you'd just like to have a cold drink and gobble up a pile of bacon straight-up, that's another great option. Whatever your eating goals, get ready to enjoy Iowa's favorite pork product.

See you Saturday from 10-2 at NewBo City Market. The Hawkeye football game doesn't start until 2:30, so you have plenty of opportunity to devour the goodness at our pig gig, then get your pigskin on.
