    Not only Americans but tons of ex-pats from other countries as well. My cousin's host explained that when they have village get-togethers there are about 30 different languages being spoken. There are even a goodly number of Mexican ex-pats (if they can be called that).

    That's why the stations that are successful right now are all about the last three and not the first.
    That should be printed out and put in the studios of many radio stations!

    Well said.

    And whatís crazy is the record we broke today was from 1905, 112 years ago, when it was 115 degrees. Can you imagine having to live in this heat before air conditioning, evaporative coolers, fans, and even electricity? And to show you how old that record was, there wasnít even AM radio yet, and we all know how old AM radio is!

    The best thing you could do in Phoenix back in 1905 to survive the heat was open your window, hang a damp cloth over the window and hope for a breeze to get some cool air. We donít know how lucky we have it these days!

    Anyone on this board around back in 1905 to give us a first-hand account of that dreadfully hot day? Lol

    Anything Phoenix can do, the Coachella Valley can do better.

    And David you might be interested to know your old stomping grounds of Prescott set a new high temperature yesterday (07/07/2017) with 101 degrees. As you well know, temperatures above 100 degrees in Prescott are very rare. Just shows you how hot things were yesterday in Arizona and southeastern California!

    I've been in Tempe since 1944 and can add a bit of historical perspective.

    You might notice the old homes in Old Town Tempe all had big porches. They were called "sleeping porches" and early in the 20th Century all members of the household would hang wet sheets surrounding these porches and sleep outside. Us old navy guys did the same thing on our ships when in S.E. Asia (minus the sheets of course).

    The only businesses that had A/C in the old days were the theater downtown Tempe, the dairy and the ice house and maybe Laird and Dines pharmacy. It always seemed cool inside. Everybody else used swamp coolers but they worked very well back then because there was very little humidity then and the metro area tended to cool off overnight (as does Tucson today). I don't ever remember it being "too hot to sleep" when I was a kid.

    But it's only 1:59 in California? Just got back from a year long boycott of Carl's Jr and the Chevy CRUZE said 122. Needles Carl's was just as bad as ever!

    It also uses radio as a believable plot device -- the songs Bat decries as jinxing a heist are all FM staples. Meanwhile, none of the songs on Baby's iPod ever got airplay in this town except for on college/LP-FM's.
