The column ends by saying that Mr. Salk will be starting on WEII (sic) next week, after spending St. Patrick's Day in Ireland.
After Ireland, Mike will fly straight to Boston, where he'll have a few days to regroup before hosting his first show on WEII on Wednesday. Though knowing Mike, he'd probably just as soon start right away.
(Spoiler alert, Mike, SPD is a serious religious holiday in Eire, which even if it was not on a Sunday would mean that the day is duller than the Earmuff Festival in Farmington Maine)
It turns out that the trip is a sponsored promotion by Jameson's and will afford Mike Salk his last day on the air in Seattle. For a taste of what you have to look forward to, check this out (Salk is on the left):
