IS FRIDAY 13TH AN UNLUCKY DAY? The fear of Friday the 13th is paraskevidekatriaphobia. Many consider it to be bad luck when 13 people sit at a table for dinner. Allegedly, this is because Judas Iscariot is the 13th person to dine at The Last Supper. William of Normandy puts an end to King Harold II’s reign during the Battle of Hastings on Friday, October 13, 1066. Suzie and I hope that this Friday the 13th is the luckiest one of them all for you.
DEES RECEIVES AWARD On January 23, 2015 Pacific Pioneer Broadcaster’s honor Los Angeles radio legend Rick Dees at its annual celebrity luncheon at Sportsmen’s Lodge in Sherman Oaks, CA. Commander Chuck Street, Dees’ former KIIS FM Los Angeles airborne traffic reporter who is now the President of Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters, presents Dees with the Art Gilmore Career Achievement Award. Special guests include Wink and Sandy Martindale. We remember Rick Dees’ 1976 novelty dance tune Disco Duck.
DISCO DUCK Never have the honor to spin Disco Duck because by the time Rick Dees releases the single on September 4, 1976 Top 40 KXOL-1360 already flips to Country. Rick says his inspiration to write Disco Duckcomes from Jackie Lee’s 1965 novelty dance song The Duck. Even though Disco Duck becomes a nationwide hit WMPS-1210 management forbids Dees from playing the song on his own show. WMPS-1210 fires Dees when he mentions Disco Duck on the air.

WINK MARTINDALE [former WHBQ-560 DJ plus legendary TV game show host Tic Tac Dough (1978-1985)] (Los Angeles-Calabasas, CA) Good morning Jim! So nice to receive your note Please know that I am an avid reader of your report/ column on a regular basis. I learn so much from it. Thank God we have a persons like you and your wife who love our business so much. As you can imagine I’ve known Rick (Dees) for many, many years. Our careers are similar (in a way). I was the morning jock at WHBQ Radio, Memphis in the Fifties before being transferred by RKO To KHJ, Los Angeles in ’59. When Rick left WMPS, Memphis in the Sixties…he took over mornings at WHBQ and achieved enormous success. It was during this period in his career that he wrote and recorded “Disco Duck” (and sadly and ridiculously was terminated for playing it on the air!). He then left Memphis for KHJ in Los Angeles. Sound familiar. All of us know well how he eventually “ended up” at KISS-FM and took that station to ratings success never seen in Los Angeles, before or since. It was such a pleasure having the opportunity to re-new my friendship with Rick at the Pioneer Broadcasters luncheon recently. Both he and his talented wife Julie couldn’t have been nicer, more down to earth and giving of their time for conversation, interviews, and picture taking. He invited my wife Sandy and me to visit with them on their 3,000 plus acre farm in Kentucky If/when we’re in “the neighborhood”! Wouldn’t he be surprised if we REALLY DID show up on his doorstep;)! Kudos to Rick for all he has accomplished. Nobody nicer. Best blessings to you both, Wink (www.winkmartindale.com)

JAY WEAVER (KLBK – 1360, Lubbock; KBUY – 1540, Fort Worth) Jim, Bob was on KXOL (1360) doing the all night show shortly after high school graduation while at TCU. He was there pretty much in the early to mid 60’s. Prior to Bob doing nights on KXOL, Kenny Sargent did nights for years. Bob used his real name on the air, Bob Botik. As I recall, Bob left KXOL in the mid 60’s for KNOW in Austin. Kenny either passed while employed at KXOL doing his show or shortly thereafter. Sargent spent most of his early career as a singer for at least one of the lesser known “Big Bands”, Glen Gray and His Casa Loma Orchestra. Jay Weaver

I am delighted to research different people that have Godly wisdom or books that are anointed . I do love to put into most of my columns quotes from our Holly BIBLE. I hope this helps my readers and inspires them – Rhonnie Scheuerman
” Each of us has an internal dialogue, an inner conversation going on with ourselves throughout the day. In fact we talk more to ourselves than we do to anybody else. The question is, What are you saying to yourself ? What do you meditate on? Positive thoughts? Empowering thoughts? Affirming thoughts? Or do you go around thinking negative, defeated thoughts, telling yourself things like “I’m unattractive, I’m not talented. I’ve made many mistakes, I’m sure God is displeased with me.” That kind of negative self-talk keeps millions of people from rising higher.
We usually talk to ourselves subconsciously, without even thinking about it. But in the back of your mind, you have these reoccurring thoughts. And for most people those thoughts are negative. I’m clumsy, I’ll never overcome my past.
I Don’t have what it takes.
All through the day they allow defeated messages to permeate their mind and self-talk. They see somebody that’s successful, somebody that’s achieving, and that inner voice tells them, “That will never happen for me. I’m not as SMART as that person: I’m not that TALENTED .” Or they see somebody that is in good physical shape, somebody that looks healthy, fit, and attractive. That voice tells them , ” I’m just not that disciplined. I’ll never get back in shape.” There’s a negative voice on the inside that’s constantly telling the person that something is wrong with them.
” You’re not a good mother or father.” ” You didn’t work hard enough last week.” You are a weak person. ” If we make the mistake of allowing this negative self-talk to take root, it not only saddens our spirit but it also limits how high we can go in life. Many people are living in mediocrity because they are playing that negative recording day after day, over and over again.
I’ve discovered that often these wrong-thinking patterns stem from childhood. The people who should have been nurturing us and telling us what we could become, building our confidence; did just the opposite. I know people who are stuck in a rut because as they were growing up, somebody mistreated them, or somebody rejected them. A parent, a coach, or even a peer spoke negative words over the person . They didn’t know any better. They just let it take root. Now those wrong-thinking patterns are keeping that person from becoming all God intends him or her to be. We have to reprogram our minds. Please don’t lay in bed every morning thinking about everything that’s wrong with you. Don’t lie there and rehearse all your mistakes- thinking about what you can’t do or how you don’t have what it takes. It doesn’t matter how may times you’ve tried and failed. You have to shake off those negative messages and experience, and put on a new recording. remind yourself often: “I am a child of the Most High God. I I am creative, I have what it takes. I will fulfill my destiny .” We should be talking to ourselves that way, not in ignorance but in quiet confidence. Deep down on the inside, all through the day, we should hear things like “I am, anointed , I am called. I am chosen. I am equipped. This is my season.”Our internal dialogue should always be positive and hopeful. We should always talk to ourselves with empowering, affirming thoughts.
1. Today i will meditate on thoughts such as these
” I have everything I need to fulfill my destiny”
” God accepts me, He approves me,
” I know God has good things in store for me.
“I am valuable; I I have royal blood in my bloodline, I have a bright future ! “
” My best days are ahead if me ,”
2. I will make time this week to examine my life carefully,
identifying any negative patterns that have been part of my family’s past.
I have decided that I will be the one to set a new standard.
I will shake off negative mind-sets, and
begin living under the blessings of God rather than under the curse.
3. With God’s help I will overcome any challenges I face
that might inhibit my growth as I stretch toward the next level in specific areas of my life.
4. I will be more aware that the decisions I made today
will affect future generations as well as my own life. I will be more careful and deliberate
about making wise decisions. I will pray, search the Scripture for guidance
seek godly advice and take time to think before making major decisions.
I will make choices based on my desire to leave my family better off than they were previously.
