2.18.11 Founder and Editor of The HookHawes Spencer joins Coy for “Fun Fridays with Hawes.” When Coy and Hawes get together, no topics are off limits, and today is no different. The conversation in this installment opens with a debate over some outdated technologies: 8 tracks vs. cassettes, before moving on to address the closing of Padow’s Deli in Barracks Road, the fattening of America via all-you-can-eat buffets, Hawes the alleged smoothie master’s blender issues, and the local Donald Trump story.

1.19.11 Charlottesville Mayor Dave Norris and Senior Editor of The HookHawes Spencer join Coy to discuss breaking news no the water supply plan. Last night, a motion asking for a brand new dam at Ragged Mountain passed in the Charlottesville City Council meeting. Hawes was present at the vote last night, and he says this plan is far more akin to the plan proposed by Albemarle County as oppossed to that which Norris was championing, and the merits of each proposal are considered. Last night’s vote seems to have caught the Mayor by surprise, and he reacts to the breaking news in today’s conversation.
