0:00 Well, this must be the most crazy start to our early morning show as our Host Irwin was stuck in Chinatown with his housing coop elevator broken. Yes, so we lost a few minutes at the start of our show, and no news headlines. oops! But things got going eventually, so fast forward!
07:00 LATE START! Irwin gets going! LOL
