An hour each of morning news anchors Bill Radke (Sat. 6-7a, noon-1p; Sun. 2-3p) and Linda Thomas’ (Sat. 8-9a, Sun. 3-4p) conglommed news bits from the week past.
The same (Sat 1-2p Sunday 4-5p) for Rachel Belle’s fetching little feetches, Ring My Belle (or I’ll kill you, foo’) will be amagamated from the previous week's Ron & Don Show.
