Happy Friday the 13th! Be afraid. Be very afraid.
On today’s River Mornings with Melissa & Jack (9-13)
Guinness Ridiculous Book of Records -
The new Guinness World Records book hits stores yesterday. The 2014 book features records like the Largest Lollipop, Largest Walking Robot and Tallest Rideable Motorcycle. "Small" records include The Shortest Donkey — standing at 2 feet, 1 inch — and the Smallest Living Dog, who stands at 3.8 inches tall. Ozzy, a Border Collie and Kelpie crossbreed, holds the title for the Fastest Crossing of a Tightrope by a Dog, after he performed the trick in 18 seconds. Are these really records? C’mon.
After Work Social w/ 103.7 The River and Jack –
Be sure to join us tonight and every Friday at Southern Railway Taphouse (111 Virginia Street, right across from La Diff) from 6-9p for drinks and food and after work relaxation. Then – knowing Jack – probably some more drinks.

Hollywood Hot Mess –
HELP! Nicole Kidman has fallen and she can’t get up! Nicole Kidman was knocked over Thursday when a photographer hit her with his bike on a New York City sidewalk. The actress, 46, is reportedly pressing charges against freelance paparazzo Carl Wu, who rode into her as she was returning to the Carlyle Hotel from the Calvin Klein show at New York Fashion Week. Jack’s Take: ‘Let’s hope she was wearing her life alert bracelet!’
