State of Confusion November 7, 2012 | 6:00 am

For the past several weeks, I've had a clear sense of what Your Wednesday Morning Buzz should sound like. Three weeks ago, it was music for eradicating poverty. To weeks ago, it was music that unites nations. Last week, it was Halloween. This week, it's the day after Election Day, and I don't know what that will look like, let alone sound like. How can I go forward, when I don't know which way I'm facing? (Wait, that's a good song to use!) I beg your input for how this show should sound. Email me at murfeeee@yahoo.com, leave a voicemail in advance at 816 994 7870 or call me Wednesday morning at 816 WEstport 1 KKFI (931 5534)
