The warmer weather brings the return of a longtime local custom that neighbors across the metro are "enjoying" tonight and until around August . . . Make that September.
KANSAS CITY'S LEAST FAVORITE GUESSING GAME IS NOW UNDERWAY: WAS THAT GUNSHOTS OR FIREWORKS?!?!
Longtime residents are REALLY good at this pastime and some of the best players can even identify weapons by caliber.
Meanwhile . . . Fireworks remain illegal inside KCMO city limits but that law is just as unenforceable as most.
Accordingly . . .
We want our readers to stay safe but remember that not every local explosion is something to fear.
And all of this inspires our playlist tonight on the topic of shooting and lesser booming sounds.
Enjoy . . .
A somewhat recent tune dedicated to gunfire and desperation confronted by the NextGen . . .
Yet another "empowerment" song that's not quite as convincing as most . . .
Another somewhat recent banger . . .
Classic rock on the topic of weekend antics and guns . . .
Nancy Sinatra finishes off this list with song about longing, regret, fireworks & shooting . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night . . .
