6:00 Happy Thursday!

Ben, Dana and Giselle had a big announcement later in the show and it involves $5000. Ben had a date last night with his mystery gal that not even Dana and Giselle know much about. They did the church and dinner sort of thing, and we hear there's a homemade dinner coming up on Friday. Yay for love! Dana played some video games last night and did the whole married thing. Giselle nibbled on a BD&G favorite, SotaRol sushi, because seriously, have you tried that sushi? Congratulations to Claudia, she's headed to Tennis for being the first caller of the day.

6:15 Who wants $5000? 

Ben, Dana and Giselle received some fun news yesterday from the big boss man. They have $5000 to just give away for fun. How should they do it? Who should it go to? What could you spend it on? Maybe pay off some bills, hand it over in all pennies, or play in a money catching machine. The ideas are flowing and we can do this giveaway anyway you want it.

6:30 The Trend 

Neverland Ranch was previously for sale for a small $100 million, but has now been re-listed for the discounted rate of $67 million. Papa John's is now giving you the chance to cut the line for $2.99. No more waiting for that drunk pizza you would have passed out and missed. The Nintendo Switch is for sale Thursday at midnight, there are some still available if you pitch a tent and wait in lines.

6:50 Is that cool or nah? 

Vice President Biden recently came out supporting his son and daughter-in-law in their new relationship. Here's why it's interesting... his daughter-in-law was previously married to Beau Biden, who passed away from brain cancer in 2016. Now Hunter Biden, Beau's brother, and Haley have started a relationship. Is that just a natural part of mourning, or is this a total no-go? The morning show is torn. What are your thoughts?

7:15 Ask A Cop

How does Officer Schmidt have fun? He's back from his vacation in Las Vegas, but who knew that he had clothing that wasn't cop stuff? B, D and G asked about those llamas that went missing, and what would happen if llamas, or really any exotic animal, went running around Minneapolis. Also: whiskey obviously don't want them, but what does it take to get them? How to avoid them though? Always find a sober ride.

7:50 $1000 Minute 

Alex wrapped up $1000 Minute today with a stellar answer snagging some cash just in time for the weekend.

8:15 Get To Know 

For Get To Know this week: What reality show would you want to win? Ben wants to be The Bachelor by losing in The Bachelorette or even Extreme Home Makeover. It is no surprise that Dana is a big fan of the reality show Survivor, he even plays in a fantasy league! Giselle just wants to be famous, post a couple of pictures, and get rich off of The Bachelorette. What do you want to win?

8:50 Seriously, how should B, D and G get rid of this money? 

If you haven't heard, B, D and G are giving away $5000. Yes, seriously. How should the morning show give it away? Call in, let B, D and G know how you want that money, and what you want to do with it. Keep on listening everyday for how we are going to do it.
