Saturday, June 22nd, 1974

Picked up Dad's virus. Just sat around and read most of the afternoon and even that hurt my eyes.

There were some terrible storms today--one really early this morning and one this evening. We were listening to WKRQ when it went off the air. Later we heard it was struck by lightning and the disc jockey knocked unconscious.

NOTES: That particular DJ was new on Q-102, the big Top 40 FM FM station in town, that year. I remember we were all worried and later stunned to read about the lightning strike. We were stunned more some years later to read about his arrest for soliciting sex from a minor on the Internet (who turned out to be a police officer).
