Today is octogenarian radio icon Walt Bodine's 89th birthday. We didn't get Walt anything, but we'd like to wish him a good one anyway.

Bodine is broadcasting live on KCUR 89.3 from 10 to 11 a.m., talking today about "coming of age" tales in literature. Feel free to call in (816-235-2888) and wish him well.

Earlier this year, Bodine donated a handful of historical tapes to the Marr Sound Archives,

including Bodine's coverage of the 1951 Kansas City flood, the 1957

Ruskin Heights tornado and the 1968 riots. The tapes also feature

interviews with Robert F. Kennedy.

By the way, nice tributes from Present Magazine and Bottom Line.
