Bruce Mendelsohn's brother participated in the Boston Marathon this year, finishing the race in around 3 hours. Bruce attended a post-race party with his brother at a location approximately 20 feet from one of the explosions. Bruce spoke with KHUM this afternoon about that experience.
Eureka's Berit Meyer and her husband Brian Ferguson were a half mile from the Boston Marathon finish line when the runners slowed to a halt.
"Within a matter of a few seconds, I could tell something obviously was really wrong," she told KHUM this afternoon.

How many sets of headphones do you have? You probably have at least a pair of junky earbuds, if not some nicer headphones for your computer or stereo. But who decides what they're supposed to sound like, and how?
On Saturday at 1pm, it's another episode of "So What Do You Do, Again?" in which we ask people about their line of work.
In this episode, our guest is Fortuna-based C.Crane headphone expert and audio engineer James Adams. KHUM being a station full of audio enthusiasts, we jumped at the chance to pick his brain.
Having just helped C.Crane launch a new headphone line, he talks with KHUM about:
- Differences between Chinese and American listening preferences
- How audio experts adapt to genre popularity
- What kind of r&d goes into headphone design
- Why certain headphones sound great on mp3 players but not on stereos
"So, What Do You Do Again" with guest James Adams
Aired Saturday, 1pm on KHUM

Awkward Pause is BLOWING UP this afternoon (6/29/12) with a lineup of special features unprecedented in radio history.
First, sometime around 3:30, our dear friends Taarka will be stopping by to chat and play some amazing music. They have a show tonight at Humbrews and will have Grant Gordy, guitar player for the David Grisman Quintet, in tow. Warm up for the show tonight by listening to wonderful sounds this afternoon on the Awkward Pause radio show.
Then, as if that's not enough (which it certainly is), at around 4:30, we'll be welcoming Jared Huffman, Congressional candidate for California's 2nd District (that's us). There's no telling what might happen when The Huff enters the Some Spin Zone. Be ready for fireworks and gotcha journalism!
And then that's it. There's nothing else on the show, for the most part.
UPDATE Friday May 18th: Nada posted a video of her first few days on the road.
"On December 27th, 2011 I found a lump on my right breast. In early January I met with my primary doctor who did not feel cancer, and since I was breastfeeding my youngest—chalked it up to that."
At age 41, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Doctors soon removed an orange-sized tumor from her right breast, as well as 18 lymph nodes.
Fast-forward to tomorrow when she begins a bicycle journey from Arcata to Marin, where she'll undergo chemo and radiation therapies.
In other words, she's not taking this lying down. Nicole's enjoying every moment as much as possible, and she's blogging her journey at KickingMyCancer.com
"The more people I tell, the more support I get, and the more they learn which is fantastic," she told the Larkspur-Corte Madera Patch.
How are her kids dealing with it? What's her prognosis? Interviewed on KHUM today at 12pm, she opened up about all that, as well as the support she's found, life with a mastectomy, and whether or not she'd prefer to be tiptoed around.
