Enjoy the next few days, because a heat wave is on the way.

1 - Another great day on tap with sunny skies and temps in the upper 70's, but get that air conditioner in tip-top shape because a heat wave is on the way for the weekend and next week. WQAD Meteorologist Eric Sorensen has the forecast details here.

2 - Three chances to win this morning. I've got tickets to Matchbox Twenty's October 7 show at the iWireless Center; family 4-packs of passes and food vouchers to this weekend's Greek Cultural Festival; and tickets to next weekend's MuddyFest in Davenport. Get your dialing fingers ready and keep listening.

3 - The Cubs won their fifth straight game last night on the strength of big bats from Rizzo and Heyward. The Cubbies host the Marlins again tonight at Wrigley Field. Catch the action on our sister station ESPN 93.5 with the pre-game show beginning at 6:30pm. More scores when we do That Sports Thing at 7:40am.

4 - Lots of theatre this weekend in the Quad Cities. Music Guild opens The Little Mermaid at Prospect Park in Moline, and QC Theatre Workshop performs Peter & The Starcatcher. Details when we do That Hollywood Thing at around 8:40am.

Have a great Wednesday.

- Craig
