After a chilly start, it’s going to be a beautiful weekend! Here’s some good stuff you can download and listen to while taking a walk, lying in the hammock, mowing the lawn or about doing anything else.

BackStoppers is one of the area’s great organizations, assisting the families of police officers and firefighters killed or severely injured in the line of duty.

On Thursday, within hours of the death St. Louis County Police Officer Blake Snyder, BackStoppers was in touch with his widow beginning what will be a lifetime of support. We spoke with Executive Director, Col. Ron Battelle, about how BackStoppers helps and how you can help them. You can hear that conversation here. For more information, click here. And don’t forget about the annual Guns ‘n’ Hoses fundraising event on November 23rd.

Saturday morning, 15,000 people took part in the annual St. Louis Walk Now for Autism Speaks at Forest Park. Executive Director Megan Hoffman tells us about the walk, and the advancements in autism treatment, here. Click here for more information on local Autism Speaks efforts.

The novel “The Girl On the Train” has been turned into a movie. Harry Hamm has his review here.

Birthday celebrants today include a long-time Hollywood reporter, a vacationing comedian and a Chicago Wolf. That list is here.

On Sunday, we’ll learn about the latest fundraising effort for Crimestoppers, plus have the latest news, sports, weather and more.

Have a wonderful day. We’ll visit with you Sunday!
