No Joke, Tune In This Weekend For A Semi-Big Announcement
In the past, we've amused ourselves with some April Fool's Day jokes -- often at the expense of Neil Young, his management, crews and bands. (BTW, here's a few of our favorites from the past here, here and here.)
But not this year. No joking around. On the eve of the annual "Pink Moon", Thrasher's Wheat will be making an exclusive, semi-big announcement.
So what is a Pink Moon? When a full moon that appears in April is called the Pink Moon. This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. The Pink Moon of April is sometimes referred to by names associated with other signs of full spring. In other cultures, this full moon is sometimes call the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
And there you have it.
So tune in to Thrasher's Wheat Radio on Wbkm Dot Org this Saturday, April 4 at 9:00PM ET to hear all the details.
