A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: ‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together. So th e doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you want me to do?’ She said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’ The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’ She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.
The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child! ‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’ The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

TROGGS WILD THING EXPIRES Over the years there are many song titles that describe our girlfriends but in 1966 British group The Troggs nail it with their hit Wild Thing. More than 45 years after its release, Wild Thing is a garage Rock Classic that turns The Troggs and its lead singer Reg Presley into international stars. According to his agent, Keith Altham, Reg passes away at 71 on Monday, February 4, 2013 from lung cancer which forces him and his band into retirement. The Troggs are a part of the 1960s British invasion brought on by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. American songwriter Chip Taylor pens Wild Thing. Recently, Reg Presley suffers several strokes. He dies at his home in Andover, which is 70 miles west of London, surrounded by his family and friends.

STUBBS GETS 30 YEARS Remember the days when we radio DJs choose our own play lists and talk about recording artists and song writers with knowledge and respect? Computers and consultants do not tell us what to play on the air. Well, radio is still alive on Music City’s WSM-650 Air Castle of the South from 7 pm – midnight with Eddie Stubbs. Country music legends gather at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater to celebrate Eddie Stubbs’ 30 years on WSM-650. Tennessee Music Commissioner Hank Adam Locklin brings a citation from Governor Bill Haslam that proclaims January 14th in recognition of Eddie Stubbs day in Tennessee. Country musicians praise Stubbs’ Grand Ole Opry announcing, plus his membership in the Disc Jockey Hall of Fame.
DO YOU REMEMBER 1964? That is when I attend Elkins Institute of Radio in Dallas, TX to become a radio DJ. In March 1965 a 1st Class FCC license arrives in the mail that allows me to be both radio DJ plus engineer and takes me to the top on KLIF-1190. In those days radio stations hire DJs who also are engineers. They get two for the price of one. Also in 1964, British Rock group The Beatles strike America’s shores like hurricane Ike wallops Houston, TX in 2008. My how time flies. In 2012 Beatles drummer Ringo Starr plays Nashville, TN’s Ryman Auditorium for his 72nd birthday along with Rock greats Steve Lukather (Toto), Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rollie (Journey, Santana), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Gregg Bissonette (Billy Joel’s band), Mark Rivera (Toto, David Lee Roth) Joe Walsh, Vince Gill, Brendan Benson (Raconteurs), Brad Paisley and Kix Brooks (Brooks and Dunn). All of this excitement releases on DVD on March 11, 2013. Can you dig it baby?

FRANK HALEY [News Director KKIM-1000] (Albuquerque, NM) Subject: Jim Rose Remembers Radio (#1162) January 07, 2013 [Monday] Well, I never got to meet Joe Long or Ted Agnew, I really would have liked to work for Joe. However, I did get to work a little with Gordon McClendon… I saw him one day in the production room cutting spots, he had a fifth of juice sitting on the table next to his mic, and as the level went down, he got better. It was amazing. I don’t really have any stories from KLIF (1190), it’s not that there weren’t any, I just can’t remember any. Have a good one, give Lacy a treat for me, OK?? Frank

DANNY MACK [McWilliams – GM KRNH FM Country (The Ranch 92.3)] (Kerrville, TX) Subject: Ed Stern. I will try to get Chuck’s (Stern) email for you. I worked for Ed from 1987 – 1992. We became best friends and he becomes my second father. When my dad passed away a decade ago, Ed reminded me I still had him as my second. That was most comforting. Sadly we drifted apart as my radio career took me all over the state. Luckily I wound up back in the area and was able to see him a couple of times in the last six-months.

[Gentleman] JIM CARTER [KONO-860, KBUC FM] (San Antonio, TX)Subject: Jim Rose Remembers Radio (#1168) January 28, 2013 [Monday] Hi Jimbo: I got tickled at Dave Michaels remarks about radio dreams/nightmares. I’ve been out of radio nearly 30 years and STILL have those stupid things! Sometimes records keep running out on me, I can’t find a particular record, cart machines don’t work and on & on. Just last night I was dreaming I was out of work and couldn’t land a gig for nothin’! It was awful! In reality it’s a living nightmare when you’re between gigs and can’t land another one. You call all your friends, run up a big phone bill (which seems to follow you forever). And then when you finally snag one you find yourself walking on eggshells around your new PD hoping you don’t say or do something on the air to make him look at you sideways or avoiding eye contact altogether, (that’s the worst!). Sometimes I get lucky and have fun dreams when everything goes right. I usually have 3 or 4 of these every month, sometimes more often than that. Who can explain why these things happen to some people and not to others? Maybe it’s a deep seeded fear many of us had of eventually working at WOLD someday! Lol. Gentleman Jim Carter/San Antonio, TX
TRIVIA ANSWER: The first Super Bowl game played in a dome is on January 15, 1978 in New Orleans, LA when the Dallas Cowboys beat the Denver Broncos 27-10 in the Mercedes Benz Superdome (then known as the Louisiana Superdome) to win Super Bowl XII. Prior to that game, New Orleans hosts three NFL championship games in Tulane Stadium. For the first and only time, two players win Super Bowl MVP honors: Randy White, defensive tackle; and Harvey Martin, defensive end. It also is the first time that a defensive lineman is named as Super Bowl MVP. The game places Cowboys’ current quarterback, Roger Staubach, against former quarterback, Craig Morton.

Trust is a golden pathway to heaven. When you walk on this path, you live above your circumstances. My glorious Light shines more brightly on those who follow this path of Life. Dare to walk on the high road with Me, for it is the most direct route to heaven. The low road is circuitous: twisting and turning in agonizing knots. There the air hangs heavy, and dark, ominous clouds predominate. Relying on your own understanding will weigh you down. Trust in Me absolutely, and I will make your path straight.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
