IT’S THURSDAY…ALMOST THE WEEKEND..TIME TO “ROCK OUT.”

 

1.  happy birthday wishes today are going out to MAMA PARTRIDGE….that’s right, actress  SHIRLEY JONES is turning 77 today….that kind of makes you feel old, doesn’t it?  as i mentioned, she played the mom on “THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY”  to numerous kids, including her real life son DAVID CASSIDY…

remember their bus?

here’s SHIRLEY JONES today, looking very beautiful at 77….

and here’s one with SHIRLEY JONES and her kids….DAVID CASSIDY is in there, as is, “MR. DA DOO RON RON” SHAUN CASSIDY….he’s on the left side…..

 

2.  happy birthday wishes are also going out to master musician HERB ALPERT….he is 76 today..that’s hard to beleive, but, i guess we’re all aging, right?  (except me)….here’s a couple of early photos of HERB ALPERT…

that’s HERB and his band “THE TIJUANA BRASS.”

and here’s HERB ALPERT today on his 76th birthday….

3.  you may be asking yourself, “JAY, WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HERB ALPERT ALBUMS? ”  well, funny you should ask…here are my top three albums…

i have a strange craving for whipped cream…

in the mood to watch a HERB ALPERT video?  here we go…

here’s my favorite HERB ALPERT song…”THIS GUY’S IN LOVE WITH YOU.”  i didn’t know that he gave THE CARPENTERS their start in the business!!!

4.  in our “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO” segment, we wonder what happened to actor BILL DAILY, who played on numerous top tv shows….he was a great “second banana” and a great set up person for the jokes….remember him?  he starred with LARRY HAGMAN on “I DREAM OF JEANNIE.”

he also played BOB NEWHART’S crazy neighbor on “THE BOB NEWHART SHOW.”  he’s in the upper left corner….

in the past few years, BILL DAILY was a co-host on a radio show for a couple of years, and has been touring the country with jeanniebottles.com,  promoting the 45th anniversary of “I DREAM OF JEANNIE.”  here is BILL DAILY in recent years….and by the way, he is 83 years old now……

5.  it’s going to be a ROCKIN’ TIME…we’ll be “ROCKIN’ INTO THE NIGHT”….just found out that one of my favorite bands “38 SPECIAL” will be playing the CORN PALACE in MITCHELL later this summer…i already have a “boys night” planned with my brothers and maybe my sons…CAN’T WAIT…

6.  summer’s coming…right?  right?  anybody out there?  seriously, it is coming, right?  hello?

7.  CNN’S WOLF BLITZER annoys the hell out of me…..

HOWEVER, WOLF is a saint compared to the next four people…these are the four people that COMPLETELY DRIVE ME CRAZY…i actually have to walk out of the room and turn the channel as i feel my blood pressure going up watching them…here they are…

4.  RACHEL MADDOW…don’t know what it is, but she makes me feel like fingernails going down a chalkboard…

RUSH LIMBAUGH…it’s time to shut up already….

2.  FARGO’S own….ED SCHULTZ…you can almost feel the arrogance dripping off of your tv knob….

and the number one person who MAKES ME SEE RED…in one word….BLECK….NANCY GRACE…

8.  PRESIDENT OBAMA got criticized for the number of times he said, “I”, in his LIBYA speech the other night….BARRY BONDS said, “AND I’M ACCUSED OF HAVING A BIG HEAD?”

9.  some eggs for the WHITE HOUSE EGG ROLL will be made of WOOD….children will be very very upset, but not as upset and pissed as the hens that laid them….

10.  DENNY’S restraunt is offering a new menu of items with “BACON.”  this is seriously true….it includes an ice cream sundae with MAPLE SYRUP AND BACON…it’s for people who want to have a heart attack, but don’t want to have to wait around for it.

11.  AMC said that their hit tv show ‘MAD MEN’ will return early in 2012…..until then you’ll have to get your MAD MEN fix by watching CHARLIE SHEEN and LIBYA’S GADDAFFI…

12.  CHARLIE SHEEN is reportedly having trouble booking hotel rooms for his upcoming tour…apparently the hotels aren’t crazy about getting “TIGER BLOOD” on thier carpets….

13.  BARRY BOND’S former mistress testified that steroids caused physical problems for BONDS…apparently he was hitting home runs on the field but striking out in the bedroom…

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A blonde had just totaled her car in a horrific accident. Miraculously, she managed to pry herself from the wreckage without a scratch and was applying fresh lipstick when the state trooper arrived. “My God!” the trooper gasped. “Your car looks like an accordion that was stomped on by an elephant. Are you OK ma’am?”

“Yes officer, I’m just fine!” the blonde chirped. “Well, how in the world did this happen?” the officer asked as he surveyed the wrecked car.

“Officer, it was the strangest thing!” the blonde began. “I was driving along this road when from out of nowhere this TREE pops up in front of me. So I swerved to the right, and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ANOTHER tree! I swerved to the right and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ………” “Uh, ma’am”, the officer said, cutting her off. “There isn’t a tree on this road for 30 miles. That was your air freshener swinging back and forth”.

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN

 

HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY…

 

1.  i know that we featured “HOLLYWOOD SQUARES” host PETER MARSHALL a few weeks back, but we need to give him a plug today, because he has a milestone…PETER MARSHALL is 85 years old today…wow….

here’s PETER MARSHALL today on his 85th birthday…

2.  also, GOMEZ ADDAMS has a birthday today…well, not GOMEZ, but the man who played him. actor JOHN ASTIN turns 81 today….i always loved his sense of humor, especially when he played a crazy man on NIGHT COURT.  he would tell of something stupid he did, or how crazy he feels and then he would say, “BUT I’M FEELING MUCH BETTER NOW.”  here’s GOMEZ…

and here’s JOHN ASTIN today on birthday number 81….

3.  in our “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO” file for today, we check in on FESTUS…remember him?  actor KEN CURTIS played this wonderful character for years on “GUNSMOKE.”  FESTUS was MATT DILLON’S counterpart and was the wisecracker of the bunch….

KEN CURTIS was also a cowboy actor before his big break on “GUNSMOKE.”

KEN CURTIS died peacefully in his sleep in FRESNO, CALIFORNIA on april 28th, 1991 at the age of 74…..he was cremated and his ashes were scattered in the COLORADO flatlands…..here’s a later photo of KEN CURTIS…(click on the red ‘x’ to see picture)

4.  okay…i’m sorry that i have to say this again, but, THE LEFT LANE IS FOR PASSING….man, yesterday people were out in full force, driving about 15-20 miles per hour in the left lane of sixth avenue….so, we were all blocked in either lane by people going the same speed limit…..you hate to be a butthead and honk at them, but it’s almost getting to that point….road rage maybe?  ha ha

5.  a good friend of mine, and former broadcasting buddy of mine, brought back a memory yesterday that i was telling somebody about around a week ago.  BRUCE DOUGHERTY was the news and sports director at KQLX in LISBON, ND while i was up there.  one day, BRUCE was over at my place talking to me outside when my HORN STUCK on my car…..and IT WAS LOUD….we had the hood open trying to find the horn so we could rip the wires off of it, and if my memory serves correctly, my neighbor came over and pulled the battery cable off of the battery….WE LAUGHED OUR BUTTS OFF ABOUT THAT….BRUCE was the same one who was with me helping me clean two feet of snow off of my roof one winter when i took a nosedive off of the roof into a five foot pile of snow….i didn’t get hurt at all, but WE LAUGHED OUR BUTTS OFF AGAIN….good memories……

6.  i went to bed last night at 7:45pm, and got up this morning at 4:15am….i don’t know why, but lately i’m in desperate need of sleep…maybe my hectic four job schedule has caught up with me…..

7.  authorities are still looking for that poisonous cobra that escaped from the BRONX ZOO….don’t worry, after a few days of mingling with residents of THE BRONX, he’s quickly come slithering back…

8.  a TEXAS prosecutor says that legendary singer WILLIE NELSON can resolve his marijuana possession charge if he agrees to sing in court…WILLIE said he would be glad to after he sparks up a doobie first….

9.  new statistics found that women in RUSSIA have the world’s largest breasts, with the average size being larger than a D-CUP…and here they wasted all that money on the IRON CURTAIN to keep men from leaving….

10.  the U.S. east coast and the midwest are experiencing unseasonably cold temperatures for this time of year…or as CHARLIE SHEEN would tell you, “MARCH COMES IN LIKE A LAMB, AND GOES OUT LIKE A LION WHO HAS TIGER BLOOD….WINNING…”

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:  (love this one)

A husband comes home one day to find his wife on the porch, bags packed waiting for a taxi.
     The husband asked, “Where are you going?”
     The wife replied, “I found out I can go to Las Vegas and earn $200.00 for what I give you for free, so I’m going.”
     Before the taxi came, the wife turned around and found her husband standing behind her with his bags packed, too.
     The wife asked him where he was going.
     The husband replied, “With you … I want to see how you are going to survive on $200.00 a month!”

HA HA HA….HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY…

the JIM WITTER concert was a HUGE success on sunday night when he did his ELTON JOHN AND BILLY JOEL tribute in ABERDEEN….well, we’re thinking about bringing him back, and we need to know what show you want him to do….

please go to the SUNNY 97-7 PAGE at hubcityradio.com  and vote on this…..you will help us decide which tribute he should do next….

 

THIS TUESDAY MORNING REMINDER…DO NOT BATHE YOUR CAT….

 

1.  KISS MY GRITS…..today we feature actress POLLY HOLLIDAY who played FLO on “ALICE.”  she was a spitfire, especially when dealing with MEL from “MEL’S DINER.”  here’s a picture of POLLY back on the show…

since “ALICE”, POLLY has appeared in such movies as “MRS. DOUBTFIRE”, “GREMLINS”, “PRIVATE BENJAMIN” and one of my favorite movies “STIR CRAZY” along with GENE WILDER and RICHARD PRYOR….

POLLY HOLLIDAY is 73 right now and still working. here she is today…

 

2.  in our “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO” section, we feature comedian RED SKELTON…or “SKELETON” which many people accidentally call him….

RED SKELTON was a great comedian who portrayed such characters as “FREDDY THE FREELOADER”, “CLEM KADIDDLEHOPPER THE CLOWN” and many more.  he also had a very very popular tv show back in the day.

RED SKELTON continued to act and entertain his millions of fans, up until his death in 1997 at the age of 84.  he is buried in a vault at the FORREST LAWN MEMORIAL PARK in GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA…

here’s a couple of pictures of RED SKELTON from his later years…

3.  okay, i admit, the this post is a selfish one for me….tennis great JENNIFER CAPRIATI turns 35 today…she is one of my favorite tennis stars EVER and, yes, she is incredibly gorgeous, so i probably had a bit of crush on her…ha ha….remember her?

here’s JENNIFER CAPRIATI today on her 35th birthday…still incredibly hot…

4.  okay, yesterday i was wondering just how many people on the ESPN boards still have their NCAA backets correct after the onslaught of top teams being elimated.  teams like BUTLER, and VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH have totally screwed up people’s brackets…well, here are the amazing stats…

ESPN has 5.9 million people that sent in their brackets…of the 5.9 million people, TWO PEOPLE HAD ALL FOUR TEAMS PICKED CORRECTLY…TWO PEOPLE..i’m actually suprised that it’s that high….and one of the guys has VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH picked to win it all…obviously a homer….

5.  i received a big suprise while taking DAD to MINNEAPOLIS last week….we stopped for a break at a gas station in MINNESOTA, and i noticed an old DORITO’S bag….remember this one?

well, i found out that the company has released the original bag with THE ORIGINAL TASTE OF THE CHIPS….and man, did that take me back…..you should try them….haven’t seen them around here, but then again, haven’t been looking for them….

6.  we sat down last night and took a break from reality, and had a pizza and watched a movie…A HORRIBLE MOVIE…i had wanted to see the new MATT DAMON movie called “HEREAFTER.”

NONE OF US LIKED IT…it was very boring and took forever to get over with…..the disappointing this is that it’s a CLINT EASTWOOD film, and i LOVE CLINT EASTWOOD….of course, i believe this is his first movie since “GRAN TORINO” and NOTHING will beat that movie…

7.  secretary of defense ROBERT GATES said that LIBYA wasn’t a threat and was of no vital national interest….pretty much the same thing the KANSAS JAYHAWKS said about VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH before sunday’s game….

8.  HARRY WESLEY COOVER, JR. the inventor of SUPER GLUE, died at the age of 94…friends say that he was tired and didn’t want to STICK AROUND ANYMORE…(oooh, that was bad….)

9.  researchers say that FACEBOOK can cause severe depression…especially to the creators of MYSPACE…

10.  WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY researchers say that people will start scratching themselves if they see someone else scratching…..is it psychological?  no stupid…maybe the first person has fleas….

11.  it’s being reported that KATIE COURIC is losing the “CBS EVENING NEWS”, but will show up on “60 MINUTES.”  here job there is to thaw out ANDY ROONEY before every show….

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

what do you get when you cross a PIG with LIBYAN leader GADAFFI?  nothing…THERE’S CERTAIN THINGS A PIG WON’T DO….

HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN

 

it was on this day in 1987, our great president RONALD REAGAN made the following comment to the WASHINGTON GRIDIRON CLUB…

“since i came to the WHITE HOUSE, i got two hearing aids, a colon operation, skin cancer, a prostate operation, and i was shot….the damn thing is, i’ve never felt better!!”  

ha ha….that’s awesome…

HAPPY MONDAY..OR NOT…

 

1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to actor KEN HOWARD…he turns 67 today….he is best known for his early 80’s tv show “THE WHITE SHADOW”, where he plays a basketball coach for a bunch of misfits.  and of course, he helps turn their lives around and become good students and good basketball players…he played coach KEN REEVES, who was also a former star for the CHICAGO BULLS, on the tv show only…he also portrayed THOMAS JEFFERSON on the show “1776.”

today KEN HOWARD is known for playing the role of MAX in the tv show “CROSSING JORDAN.”  here he is today…

2.  have you ever wondered whatever happened to TELLY SAVALAS?  well, he was best known for the awesome tv show “KOJAK”, where he always sucked on a lollipop, and uttered his famous line shown below…

TELLY SAVALAS was known before KOJAK, as appearing as ARCHER in the classic movie “THE DIRTY DOZEN.”  TELLY SAVALAS died in 1994 at the age of 72, one day after his birthday….

here is TELLY with actor WILLIAM CONRAD and another man.

did you know that TELLY SAVALAS’S brother GEORGE played on KOJAK, too?  yep…remember him?

3.  i would like to say a personal huge thank  you to GREG ODDE and his family for bringing the ABERDEEN WINGS to town….you guys need to be commended for taking a chance to bring junior hockey to town…and what a success it is!! on saturday night, 1573 packed the ODDE ICE ARENA to watch the WINGS win their second game of the weekend…our beloved WINGS won in a shootout on friday night….

i’ve already gone into depression over hockey ending..ha ha….and i’ll tell you this…september cannot come quick enough, so i can get back in the seats and watch hockey!! 

4.  from all accounts that i’ve heard from JIM WITTER absolutely was awesome last night….he of course, was doing a tribute to ELTON JOHN and BILLY JOEL…..i’ve talked with a few people already and everyone of them loved it, and said they hope he comes back soon….

5.  i couldn’t make it last night, because the WARNER SCHOOL had their annual “NIGHT AT THE THEATER.”  and my son MITCHELL had a hand in the event….MITCHELL did a hilarious comedy piece with BRADY FUHRMAN…plus he was in the one act play…there are tons of talented people in the school, but the one that blew me away was LEXI BIERMAN…seriously….she could be on “AMERICAN IDOL.”  she is that good….

6.  our “almost” first female VICE PRESIDENT died over the weekend…GERALDINE FERRARO passed away at the age of 75….

she was the running mate of WALTER MONDALE, who lost the 1984 election to RONALD REAGAN, who won in a landslide….MONDALE was the VICE PRESIDENT of the presidency of JIMMY CARTER….

by the way, WALTER MONDALE is now 83 years old and is back home in MINNESOTA…

7.  have you seen the video of PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA trying to get back in the WHITE HOUSE when he got locked out? 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL9wBEjeAh8

it reminds me of the 1990’s when HILLARY CLINTON changed the locks to keep PRESIDENT CLINTON out…ha ha

8.  NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY discovered that people who go to church regularly are more likely to be heavier in weight…that’s why my church is now using diet communion wafers!!!

9.  LEONARD NIMOY’S original SPOCK ears are being auctioned off….the auctioneer will sound something like this…”LET’S START THE BIDDING ON THE SPOCK EARS…YOU SIR, THE 37 YEAR OLD MAN LIVING IN HIS MOM’S BASEMENT, HOW MUCH DO YOU BID?”

10.  LINDSAY LOHAN dropped her last name and wants to be known by a single name….or the last name of DEFENDANT…

11.  officials have closed the reptile house at the NEW YORK CITY BRONX ZOO, after a poisonous cobra disappeared from the enclosure….authorities are looking for something cold blooded with it’s fangs out…they accidently arrested the women from “REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK.”

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

An old man lived alone in Ireland. He wanted to spade his garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison.
     The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament. Shortly, he received this reply, “For Heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up the garden, that’s where I buried the GUNS!”
     At 4A.M. the next morning, a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, without finding any guns.
     Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son explaining what happened, and asked him what to do next.
     His son’s reply was: “Now plant your potatoes Dad, It’s the best I could do at this time.”

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY..
