Mother plays hilarious prank on ten-year-old girl who can't wake up in the morning. by getting a jazz band to play in her bedroom Ten-year-old Sophie struggles to get out of bed for school in the morning Her mother enlisted the help of an Atlanta radio breakfast show A five-piece jazz band started playing in her bedroom to wake... Ten-year-old Sophie has her mother to thank for the stunt, which was made possible by radio show presenters at The Bert Show, a feature of WWWQ FM in Atlanta, and filmed for their website. At her wits' end, Sophie's mother eventually enlisted the help of the radio staff and invited the five-piece jazz band called Blair Crimmins And The Hookers into the youngster's bedroom.

Who’d ever guess that in the age of having maps on our phones that shift to our current location automatically, that there would still be joy in using an old paper map. There are a lot of people who still like to use a paper and pencil for everything. I like to use a mechanical pencil and paper to make notes. I could use a keyboard or Siri on my phone to add items to a grocery list, but there is something about carrying that piece of paper that gets the job done better. You can’t beat unfolding and snapping a paper to attention in front of you before you read it. I sent a thank you note using the old-fashioned postal service the other day. You can text people and email people and Facebook them, but have you gotten something in the snail mail lately. We had the friend move her vehicle out of the driveway blocking the garage before she left with my daughter for the day so it wouldn’t block the garage, in case we needed to get the car out of the garage. OUR LANDLINE phone recently quit working, and we didn’t know it for days. We thought about getting rid of it but there’s some security in having a wired phone in your home. I use the alarm on my phone, but we.
A few days before I left, a dear Door County friend called and told me he would like to give me an antique radio that belonged to his father. This is one of those tall, console radios that sits about four-feet high in a beautiful wooden case. The wood case was in absolutely perfect condition and I was so honored that my friend was passing this along to me. I got it back to New York (this is a complete story unto itself to be told on another day) and took it to another dear friend who... He had to replace a few tubes and a transformer, plus some of the old cloth wiring, but in a few weeks, it was very carefully placed in my living room in a prominent place. The only problem is that the next year when I returned to Door County, I caught the antique radio bug. At the end of the season, I purchased a little 1950s Philco clock radio. I put it in my bedroom and enjoy its timekeeping and alarm clock capabilities all year long. One thing I can tell you is that the buzzer in this old clock radio can wake the dead. Again scouring the many fine antique shops in Door County, I found yet another vintage radio. This was also a 1950s clock radio made by the Automatic Radio company.
Could this possibly be the cruelest wakeup call?
Think the sound of your alarm clock is the worst noise you could wake up to? Think again! Imagine being woken by a live jazz band performing in your bedroom instead. That's exactly what happened to one 10-year-old whose mother was finding it impossible to ...
