I am all about that '90s nostalgia and this week on the show we get into it in a real big way from a couple of albums, one of which is a collection of demos and rarities from the Boston band Helium titled Ends With And. Lead singer Mary Timony oversaw the collection herself, scavenging basements to unearth some of these tracks.

In this episode of Reel Talk, Collin and Peter discuss Cars 3. Does this movie redeem the downfall of Cars 2? Do we recommend that you give it a watch? You can hear all of that and more in this week's episode of Reel Talk. We'll see you at the movies.

Big white tents are popping up all over business parking lots, which can only mean one thing: firework season. The Cape Girardeau Fire Department has a few reminders and general safety tips on firework celebrations.


Fire Marshall Brian Shaffer says firework use should come with adult supervision, sparklers are not meant to be used by younger children, and if you come across a dud firework, let it cool off before handling it.

It seems like almost yesterday that George Frederick Bollinger led a contingent of North Carolinians across the Mississippi River into Missouri.  The young Mr. Bollinger had visited the small community of Cape Girardeau in 1797, established a friendship with Louis Lorimier who encouraged him to return to North Carolina and bring more settlers to the area.

This week on the show we're playing the latest from Roger Waters. He's a founding member of Pink Floyd and that band's foremost creative force from the period when Syd Barret left in 1968 until Waters himself left in 1985. His latest solo album is titled Is This The Life We Really Want?

Left Of The Dial airs Friday nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
