The 19th Annual MEET AC Atlantic City Airshow was record-setting, with an estimated attendance of 550,000 spectators.

Thousands more listened on our live, uninterrupted WPG Talk Radio 95.5 broadcast.

It was a truly spectacular day by any standard of measure.

Early in the 6:00 a.m. hour of 10 hour live broadcast, without warning, a squirrel appeared at “Show Central,” right on our live remote WPG Talk Radio 95.5 remote broadcast studio.

This pleasant entry to the scene occurred during our live interview with Dr. Harvey Kesselman, President of Stockton University.

The squirrel was completely unafraid of our presence and  it traveled freely, very close to us.

For a brief moment, the squirrel became an unavoidable part of our live broadcast.

The squirrel just couldn’t be ignored because of its close contact with us.

We love Disney World as a family and we’re very used to squirrels, ducks, birds and other small animals being totally unafraid of nearby humans.

I’m just not used to seeing a squirrel behave in this domesticated way here in New Jersey. They usually keep their distance and run away, timid anytime humans are in close contact.

I know that one squirrel is not a big deal and won’t change the world as we know it.

But, it sure was fun and unexpected to interact in such close contact.

The keen eye and steady hand of the sensational Jennifer Doughten Smith took the photos of our uninhibited “little visitor.”

On this special day each year, when “Hurley in the Morning” takes the show on the road and has the wonderful opportunity to engage with our fabulous community … we were joined by “Squirreley in the Morning” and it sure was a lot of light-hearted fun.

Look at The iconic United States Air Force Thunderbirds. They fly at a high rate of speed within 18 inches of each other.

They were traveling at least 700 miles per-hour in this fabulous photograph taken by Mark Giannantonio. There were two more “Thunderbirds” nearby, not pictured in this formation.

As you can see, it wasn’t just about a little squirrel … a record-setting airshow was also held, to the delight of 550,000 spectators.

Make that 550,001.
