* Um…



The Google Maps link is here.

* Fox St. Louis

The lagoon with the interesting name is located near the broadcast tower for Bible Broadcasting Network station WCPQ. Google lists the radio station location as WBUS-FM. The call letters have changed several times over the years. The last time the station was called “The Bus” was in the 1980s and 1990s when it played rock music.

A post to a fishing forum from 2015 sheds some light on the area, “You can find it, but I don’t think you can find it by googling for it as a phrase, and it’s not really a lagoon. It just happened to be the closest spot that FishMap had for me to check out for Rainbow Darters and Southern Redbelly Dace. Neither of which I found while there, unfortunately. It’s a small spot on the Rock Creek as it passes under S. Center Road SW of Peotone.”

* I was never into hair-metal bands, but I did kinda like this song

Take a bottle, shake it up

    And, yes, it’s a bit of a slow news day.

    Back when I had hair, I used to really enjoy me some hair metal.

    Sirius XM helps bring the nostalgia.

    Hair Metal Band? How about Arena rock band.

    pool boy, get your own blog and you can call them whatever you want.

    Lagoon Rock?… fitting destination for Hair Bands…if you ask me.

    Now you’re really bringing on the heartache.

    …and in other Hair Metal news, former Motley Crue frontman will be playing the Illinois State Fair.

    Good grief, it looks like Vince Neil has been visiting the Waffle House instead of the Doll House in Ft. Lauderdale…

    With recreational marijuana coming soon, the phrase “fire me up” in the song Rich referenced will probably take on a whole different meaning at Def Leppard Lagoon…

    For a few (erm) decades now, a few friends & I would make sure that if we were at a wedding, we’d tip the dj enough money so that Pour Some Sugar on Me got played during the reception…
