Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. PETA back in Lubbock (link)

I don't agree with PETA, but they have one hell of a PR team. Back in 2009 PETA sent two girls to lay on

a bed in their underwear on 19th and Buddy Holly. I don't think they convinced anyone to stop eating meat, but they did cause a scene. I volunteered to head out there and get photo's for KFYO, for news reasons of course.

This time PETA is back and they will be naked. Sorta. Two PETA girls will be showering behind a banner on the corner of Broadway and University at Noon today. I'm sure their message has something about going vegan, but I doubt many guys will care what their message is. Strangely enough, I've already had a few listeners volunteer to take pics for KFYO. Odd.

Speaking of vegans...

2. President Bill Clinton is a vegan (link)

Apparently former President Bill Clinton is done eating meat. The former President is now on a strict vegan diet.

The former president, known for his love of burgers, barbecue and junk food, has gone from a meat lover to a vegan, the strictest form of a vegetarian diet. He says he eats fruits, vegetables and beans, but no red meat, chicken or dairy.

Clinton, 65, who had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 and then stent surgery in 2010, is following this eating plan to improve his heart health.

I'll give Clinton credit on this one. I could never do it.

3. Jobs resigns (link)

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is now former Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Jobs has been sick and battling cancer and it appears as though it's taken a toll on the tech giant. According to FOX:

Analysts do not expect Jobs' resignation -- which had long been foreseen -- to derail the company's fabled product-launch roadmap, including possibly a new iPhone in September and a third iteration of the iPad tablet in 2012.

``I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come,'' he said in a brief letter announcing his resignation.

I know there are a lot of people who can't stand Apple out there, but you've got to give Apple and Steve Jobs respect. Apple has been huge because of Jobs and I don't expect it to slip at all.

These and many more topics coming up on Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News with Chad Hasty. Tune in mornings 6-9am on News/Talk 790 KFYO, streaming online at, and now on your iPhone and Android device with the radioPup App.
