In 1985, my radio career was soaring. I was co-hosting the hugely successful WQMF-FM morning radio "Show With No Name." My partner Ron Clay was a shrewd, sardonic, soured-on-life hippie guy. He was brilliant and always had something clever to throw out on the air. We could finish each other's sentences with goofy riffs about society, celebrities, and politicians. We did outrageous things. We used sound effects to make it seem as if we were broadcasting from around the world. We lied a lot. We giggled at each other's provocative setups. We were juvenile delinquents trapped in grownup bodies. Rude boys throwing conventional broadcast techniques out the window. Radio stations in Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia sent employment inquiries. None of those

Erin Calipari is the daughter of University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari. She regularly fights with people on Twitter. This one's a little stickier than others. Erin Calipari took offense to a social media post where Christi Mack, wife of University of Louisville basketball coach Chris Mack, applauded a post about supporting all of society, including police, during these tumultuous days of racial unrest. Erin Calipari deleted her clapback tweet less than one hour after posting it. Who in 2020 thinks it's OK to demand that a man put his wife in her place? Wut? Aren't you a Ph.D doing research at Vanderbilt? Did your husband say it was OK to go to college? Erin Calipari added this follow up: I’ve said this before
