We'll take a look at the names of listeners on our list for this August 5th in a bit, but first,  today could be the day you find a pearl.

It's National Oyster Day!

How much do you know about oysters?  For starters, there are over 100 different species of them.  They are usually named after the body of water in which they are found, because they take on the the characteristics of the water in which they live.

Chesapeake Bay, on the east coast is the largest oyster-producing body of water in the world.

Here in the United States, east coast oysters are often smaller, milder and saltier, while west coast oysters are more creamy and sweet.

World-wide, about two billion pounds of oysters are consumed each year.

Your chances of finding a pearl in an oyster are very slim.  Only one out of 10,000 oysters will produce a pearl.  So, good luck.

To celebrate this day, here in the Concho Valley, how about a bowl of oyster soup.

Concho Valley birthdays include:

Kaisn Daniel, 6.  From Nanna K and PaPa T.

Chris Lawrence, 32.  From all the guys in 505 A & B and the staff.

Allan Baughman, old enough.  From his son, Calvin and the rest of the family.

Beth Trather, old enough.  From Jackie.
