From the southern outskirts of Puget Sound Media, it’s Rick Dees in the Morning recorded January 20, 1989. It happens to be the Inauguration Day of George H. W. Bush and Rick has a favor to ask of the President Elect. It also includes a Commander Chuck Street airborne traffic report for anyone missing a good traffic jam.
