Gus talks about what happened to him last Saturday night as he was driving to the vigil mass. He had on one of the classic rock channels on SiriusXM and heard Rick Derringer’s “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo” before pulling into the church parking lot. It stuck in his head and became a wholly inappropriate earworm throughout mass. Gus invites listeners to call in and talk about what their routines are as they’re driving or walking to mass.

Later, Gus is joined by Valeria Gurr, a senior fellow for the American Federation for Children, who wrote a piece for the National Catholic Register that talks about St. Anne’s School, the oldest Catholic school in Las Vegas, being shuttered over politics. Five years ago, the school was thriving thanks to Opportunity Scholarships, but met resistance from the majority Democrat state legislature who is by and large against school choice. They argued that these scholarships benefit the students of wealthy families, which is patently untrue. The East Las Vegas area, which St. Anne’s serves, has an average per-capita income lower than 98.4% of neighborhoods in the U.S. Valeria talks about how the vote was greatly influenced by the teacher’s union, was politically motivated, and not done in the children’s best interest.

Afterwards, Gus invites listeners to call in and share their Catholic school experiences.
