April Fool’s

NPR’s at it again. Every April 1st, my husband and I listen intently to Morning Edition to see how quickly we can identify their April Fool’s story. It’s done straight; indeed they get mail from outraged listeners who miss the joke. This year, they got us – two stories, not one!

You haven’t missed out on the fun. Not only do we link you to today’s stories, but you can use LexisNexis Academic to read transcripts of favorites from the past. Can you find the missing story (April 1, 2008) in Radio & TV Transcripts in  LN Academic? Find the story and get your name on our blog!
