State police say a Firestone tire blew on a Ford Explorer in Roanoke County overnight... causing an accident that sent two people to the hospital... The Northbound lanes of Interstate 81 were closed at the 581 exit for several hours... The accident scene is clear and both lanes ARE open now. State police say the driver of the '98 Ford Explorer does not believe his Firestone tires had the serial number of tires that have been recalled in the last year. Both the driver and his passenger are from Tennessee. They were reportedly in stable condition this morning after the tire blew, sending their Explorer over a guardrail and into nearby woods.

(( ((nats piano)) ((nats talk))
..TALK RADIO.. JUST ABOUT EVERY TYPE OF RADIO.. IN YOUR CAR, IN C-D QUALITY, AND THE STATION NEVER CUTS OUT OR FADES.. EVEN IF YOU DRIVE FROM HERE TO L-A: THAT'S THE PROMISE OF SATELLITE RADIO.
THERE ARE TWO COMPANIES THAT'LL BOTH OFFER 100-CHANNELS STARTING LATER THIS YEAR ...X-M, BASED OUT OF WASHINGTON, DCTERMS. AND SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO, BASED IN MIDTOWN.

(SOT-Joe Capobianco: "you can be into metal you can be into classical.

you could be into both and also listen to the BBC. You can now scratch whatever itch you have at the push of a button. And radio just hasn't been designed to do that.")

EVERYTHING TO DO THAT IS RIGHT HERE IN SIRIUS' 150-THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT HEADQUARTERS.
FROM SATELLITE CONTROL, WHERE WORKERS MAKE SURE AT LEAST TWO OF SIRIUS' THREE SATELLITES ARE SHOOTING SIGNALS DOWN TO THE U-S AT ALL TIMES... TO 76-STUDIOS WHERE D-JS AND PERSONALITIES WILL HOST JUST ABOUT EVERY GENRE OF PROGRAM ...FROM HARD ROCK TO GOSPEL TO LATIN LOVE TO SPORTS.

(SOT- "We are not a New York radio station an LA radio station or an

Idaho radio station, we're a national station. So that when bob marley's sons were up here last week for a reggae channel people around the country who are into that music can bond over that and that's the same with all our channels.")

SIRIUS SAYS SIMPLY BEING HERE GIVES ITS SHOWS GREAT ACCESS TO THE TOP NAMES IN MUSIC AND SHOW BUSINESS:

SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO LAUNCHES SERVICE NATIONWIDE LATER THIS YEAR. IT'LL COST 12.95 PER MONTH, PLUS THE COST OF THE RADIO, WHICH MAY RUN YOU FROM 100 TO 300 DOLLARS.
X-M SATELLITE RADIO LAUNCHES SEPTEMBER 12TH IN THE SOUTHWEST, THEN NATIONWIDE IN NOVEMBER.
ITS SERVICE WILL COST 9.99 A MONTH PLUS THE COST OF THE RADIO.
ALL THAT'S LEFT, IS FOR BOTH TO WAIT AND SEE WHETHER OR NOT AMERICANS WANT MORE CHOICES IN MUSIC ...AND WANT IT ENOUGH TO PAY FOR IT.))

Kirby Puckett had the grace and Dave Winfield brought the power. They, along with Bill Mazeroski and Hilton Smith will be inducted today into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
Mazeroski is probably best known for his game-winning homer in the seventh inning of the 1960 World Series. He's been passed over by the Veterans Committee 15 times, but this year he scored a nomination.
Here's a look at last night's scores.

Well-- a rather famous bird. After trading their nuptials, Jamie Hinkle and Steve Matteo were whisked away in a pink cadillac yesterday evening sporting one of Franklin County's most visible outlaws. The owner of a Smith Mountain Lake miniature golf course took his zoning dispute with Franklin County on the road by making the car the bird's perch. No word on whether the pair came close to chickening out on their vows.
