With the change of season and the colder weather approaching, coughs and sniffles may begin. While it is often difficult to avoid the viruses that cause colds and flu, if your body is at it’s strongest, you are more likely to fight them off before they settle in, and recover faster if you do get a cold or flu.
1. Have a flu injection before winter
2. Eat a balanced, healthy and varied diet
3. Supplement your diet with a good multivitamin
4. Exercise regularly, unless you are sick
5. Get some fresh air and sunshine
6. Get enough sleep – 7 to 8 hours a night
7. Use a humidifier when you are sleeping
8. Wash your hands regularly
9. Drink plenty of water
10. Avoid contact with sick people

IS COUNTRY RADIO CONSULTANT SEXIST? In April 1965 on my first radio station KASO-1240 in Minden, LA they tell us DJs to not play two female artists back-to-back. Radio consultant Keith Hill cautions radio stations against playing too many songs by women, and they shouldn’t be played back to back. This brings anger from some Music Row female artists. Hill receives death threats and name-calling. What do you think about the airing of female artists on Country radio? Let us know at Rosekkkj@earthlink.net.

LEE ANDERSON [Morning DJ/GM on KNED-1150] (McAlister, OK) Subject: Retirement. Hello Jim. Really enjoy reading your news letter. After 54 years of doing a morning show, I am going to give it up Wednesday May 27th. It’s been a long grind with a lot of fun and have made a lot of good friends. First job was doing weekends on KBER in San Antonio in the early 60’s when that station had only been on the air about a month. Jerry Wilder did weekday mornings, Bob Wolfe did mid days and the engineer, Dick Jones did afternoons. KBER had to sign off at sunset. Myself and another engineer his last name was Swanson did weekends. In mid 1962 I met some folks building a new station in Pearsall, Texas. Moved there and worked for KVWG until late 1965. I had met a State Senator from Oklahoma who owned a station and he offered me a job, since my wife was from McAlester, Oklahoma, I accepted, and have now spent 50 years here. I also had job offers in Victoria and Corpus Christi when I moved here. I am still going to be General Manager and partner in Southeastern Oklahoma Radio LLC, which owns and operated KNED-AM. KMCO.FM, KTMC AM And FM in McAlester. I have been lucky enough to serve on The Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Board of Directors 13 years, was President one year. Keep the newsletter coming and keep up the good work…Sleepy Lee Anderson.

DR. JEFF CUNNINGHAM [ex KXOL-1360] (Austin-Kyle, TX) Subject: JIM ROSE REMEMBERS RADIO May 29, 2015 [Friday] Issue #1411. Thank you for the story on the floods, especially about the weather caster who lost his family. I know a fellow that was acquainted with Mr. McCombs (who survived) and had recently met one of his daughters who is missing. This is really a bit too close to me. The floods were about a mile away from where I live and I can only thank God that everyone in my area was OK. However, I am still stunned at the stories that are coming out in the media. It is like a horrible movie that just won’t end. Jeff Cunningham, DC, MA; Kyle, TX

DON SUNDEEN [DJ/Hi Records promotion/TV ad production] (Dallas, TX) Scott Seagraves sent this in yesterday, I must tell you I got goose bumps listening to Morgan on KHJ in ’69 again. Whether you ever heard him live on air or not, he was one of the Triumvirate of Great Jocks: Morgan, Lujack and Imus. The only one left standing is the I-Man, and he almost bought it in an Horse riding accident a while back. I’ve been told that the loss of his friend and peer, Morgan, was very difficult for Don. Besides the loss of a friend, those kind of things can remind one of their own mortality. I can testify to that.

My first Guitar was a toy Mickey Mouse guitar with plastic strings. I used to strum that and sing Sneaky Snake all the time
I have enjoyed music ever since I can remember. There was always music playing in the house, either records or the radio. At a very young age I had interest in the guitar. My first one was a toy Mickey Mouse guitar with plastic strings. I used to strum that and sing Sneaky Snake all the time. A few years later my parents got me a real guitar, it was a Fender acoustic. I was probably 7 or 8 at the time and the guitar was as big as I was (it was a full size guitar). I took some group guitar lessons but didn’t really learn much in that atmosphere so then we found a guy to give me private lessons. His name was Crowbar, he taught me some chords and a couple songs but I wanted to learn more. So we found another guy for me to get lessons from and he taught me all the notes string by string and chords and songs. After a few years I stopped taking lessons but kept learning on my own. I bought books, magazines, and tabs to my favorite songs. I kept playing and learning all through high school and also got myself an electric guitar.
Music was such a love of mine that I decided to go to college for it and learn more about it. It was then that I realized even after all my years of playing so far that I really knew very little about music. I attended Concordia College in St. Paul, Mn majoring in music. It was there that I learned about classical guitar. That was a whole new style for me, holding the guitar differently, finger picking, and playing on a classical guitar with nylon strings. The music theory was also very interesting and one of my favorite classes. I studied there for four years and had to do a senior recital. For that it was just me on the stage with my guitar and for some of the songs my instructor or a flute player would join me.
That was a great experience, I enjoyed playing in front of my peers and my teachers. At the end of college I graduated with a bachelor degree in music. After college I found a job, not in music unfortunately, but it paid the bills. My Mother, sister, and I started a band called Family Tradition. We played a few gigs but it didn’t last very long, but it is how I met Jeff. He is the drummer that is still playing music with me to this day. We have been jamming together for 20 years. After Family Tradition I have been in several bands, the most recent of these is Ransacked. We play a variety of music, anything from Johnny Cash to Van Halen. We play about twice a month and love every minute of it. I also started giving guitar lessons about a year ago. There is not many options for guitar instructors around here so I thought I would give it a try. Music is a wonderful thing and I love sharing that gift with anyone who wants to learn, no matter what their age is. I have about 12 students right now and hope to gain more. It is a great outlet for kids. I have also started recently to play guitar with the worship team at church. We do contemporary religious songs with a full band. It is a blast and a challenge at times to learn 3 to 5 new songs every week but it is well worth it. I love my life and I love music. The more music in my life the better!

When you are suffering, My care may seem imperfect and inadequate. You seek relief, and I make you wait. Just remember: There are many different ways to wait, and some are much better than others. Beneficial waiting involves looking to Me continually-trusting and loving Me.
Thank Me for this time of neediness, when you must depend on Me more than usual. Do not waste this opportunity by wishing it away. Trust that I know what I’m doing-that I can bring good out of everything you encounter, everything you endure. Don’t let your past or present suffering contaminate your view of the future. I am the Lord of your future, and I have good things in store for you. I alone know the things I am planning for you-to give you a future and a hope.
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. -Lamentations 3:25 nkjv
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. -Isaiah 40:31 nkjv
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28
For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. -Jeremiah 29:11 nasb
