1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to one of my top five country artists of all time…CHARLEY PRIDE…CHARLEY turns 73 today…i had the most incredible experience with him one time at the BROWN COUNTY FAIR. i sat in a trailer out back and he poured his emotions and guts out to me about RCA letting him go in favor of “NEW ARTISTS.”  he was very candid and incredibly pleasant…A WONDERFUL MAN…

here’s my favorite CHARLEY PRIDE album, an album i had when i was younger. and when he was much younger…


and here is CHARLEY PRIDE today at 73….

how about a video of this great man?  here’s his biggest song ever…”KISS AN ANGEL GOOD MORNING.”



2.  also, actor KEVIN DOBSON turns 68 today…wow..pushing 70…you may remember him from “KNOT’S LANDING.”  remember him?

and here is KEVIN DOBSON today on his 68th birthday..

3.  in our “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO” file, we salute actor HOWARD HESSEMAN, who is the main reason that i’m on the radio today…HOWARD played “DR. JOHNNY FEVER” on one of my all time favorite shows “WKRP IN CINCINNATI.” he was awesome on the show, and inspired me to get into radio….

HOWARD HESSEMAN went on to star in the show “HEAD OF THE CLASS”, and has appeared in such movies as “THIS IS SPINAL TAP”, “POLICE ACADEMY 2” and many others…he is now 71 years old…here he is today, including one with his WKRP co-star LONI ANDERSON…

4.  by the way, the big debate back then over WKRP is, which babe would you take home to mama….LONI ANDERSON’S character “JENNIFER MARLOW”, or JAN SMITHER’S character “BAILEY QUARTERS.”

hands down…easy pick..i would take JAN SMITHER’S character ‘BAILEY QUARTERS’ in a heartbeat…she was a very down home, very beautiful young lady….LONI’S character was sexy, but looked like she came with a lot of baggage…

5.  country music legend FERLIN HUSKY died yesterday at the age of 85….FERLIN sold over TWENTY MILLION records back in the 50’s and 60’s, and is mostly known for an incredible song “ON THE WINGS OF A DOVE.”  remember this?



man, this one wouldn’t fly today…”THE FLINTSTONES” smoking cigarettes…WINSTON cigarettes….that would be a huge no-no today…


7.  i remember back in grade school when i used to sit at my desk and sniff SHARPIE MARKERS…i LOVE the smell of them…it was many years later that i found out that you can get “high” smelling those….well, that would explain all my B’S and C’S…ha ha

8.  researchers now say that the effects of hangovers get a lot worse as you get older…that would explain why mugs shots of BRITTNEY SPEARS, LINDSAY LOHAN AND PARIS HILTON are a hell of lot better than those of MEL GIBSON, GLEN CAMPBELL AND NICK NOLTE….

9.  a man told the DETROIT NEWS that he was so excited about drinking and partying yesterday, that he sat outside a bar at 6am until they opened later in the day….when the reporter told him that he must really love ST. PATRICK’S DAY, the man replied, “WHAT? IT’S ST. PATRICK’S DAY?”

10.  the state of GEORGIA is in trouble for using a lethal injection drug after THE EXPIRATION DATE…wow…yep, we’d hate for those people to get sick RIGHT BEFORE THEY EXPIRE….

11.  a wealthy executive from CHINA bought a dog for 1.5 MILLION DOLLARS…when asked about it, the man said, “I CAN’T BELEIVE THE RISING COSTS OF FOOD.”

12.  for the first time ever, DIET COKE is outselling PEPSI…advertising execs are crediting CHARLIE SHEEN for making the word “COKE” a household word again…

13.  HUGH HEFNER recently revealed that he didn’t lose his virginity until he was 22 years old…it was his late night before joining the UNION ARMY to fight the SOUTH….

14.  JERMAINE JACKSON is writing a book about his brother MICHAEL, and he’s been going thru MICHAEL’S papers..unfortunately, they’re mostly prescription pads…

15.  supermodel KATE MOSS ignited controversy the other day when she walked down the runway smoking a cigarette…she apologized for it and said she only did it because she was out of cocaine…


A blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so she goes out and buys a gun. She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and when she opens the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, the blonde is really angry. She opens her purse to take out the gun, and as she does so she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head.

The boyfriend yells, “No, honey, don’t do it.”

The blonde replies, “Shut up, you’re next.”
