and yes, I could have bought Miracle Whip in a five gallon bucket…….

it’s my “peanut butter and miracle whip sandwiches”…..here’s the deal….I am a fussy consumer of some products…It MUST be Jif….it MUST be Miracle Whip…..not mayonnaise, and not Peter Pan peanut butter……..Back when I was on the radio, we talked about these sandwiches at length one morning….and so, we bought all the necessary ingredients and made peanut butter and Miracle Whip sandwiches for our listeners…..and yes, a lot of people stopped by….what amazed me was the incredible number of people who ALREADY ate these sandwiches all the time like me….good stuff…..makes me want one right now…….

3. I am funny about my “products list.” I absolutely have to have HEINZ ketchup….anything else tastes like crap to me……..the same goes for pork and beans…they have to be VAN KAMPS….not anything else…….I figure this…I don’t ask for a lot of things in this lifetime, so my craziness about this should be okay…….

4. I haven’t been excited about the past few weeks of movie releases…..My wife and I both think that some real “stinkers” have been out in the theater lately….That changes this week….

I cannot WAIT to see the new movie “SON OF GOD.”

Son_Of_God_poster_small

Just in time for the Lenten season and Easter, it’s a great story of the life of JESUS….and the previews look exceptional…..This is one movie that we are going to HAVE to take our youth group to……….

The last great Christian movie, in my opinion, was MEL GIBSON’S movie “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.”

936full-the-passion-of-the-christ-poster

yes it was gory……yes it was gross….yes, parts of it were hard to watch…but, I say this…HOW DO WE KNOW IT WASN’T WORSE THAN WHAT THE MOVIE SHOWS? This is one movie that is required of our youth group and confirmation class each and every Lenten season…..maybe “SON OF GOD” will be like that, too……

And I can’t wait for the Easter season, because a movie is coming out that I have been waiting for……

heaven-is-for-real-poster

that’s right, “HEAVEN IS FOR REAL” based on the best selling book about a true story of a young boy, OBVIOUSLY, going to heaven and back….I say OBVIOUSLY, because there is no way this young child could have made this stuff up……my wife and I teared up during the PREVIEWS on this one…I can’t imagine how emotional the movie will be…….

5. I haven’t taken much time to talk about the U.S. hockey teams agonizing defeat in the Olympics…….and believe me, there was a LOT MORE riding on the U.S./CANADA hockey game that a gold medal……

DANG IT…..we have him for another few years…….This alone should have given our boys the power to win the game………

6. I have been singing some great TV themes in my head…….and I want to play a couple of them for you…..get ready to CRANK UP YOUR SPEAKERS and sing along with these two……

The first one was a show starring WILLIAM KATT, CONNIE SELLECA, and ROBERT CULP….remember “THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO?”

AND NOW….THE THEME FROM “THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO.” this song made it to number 2 on the Billboard charts…..and the singer of the song is JOEY SCARBURY…..get ready to sing along!!!

And, for our second TV theme song, we switch to a show that ran from 1974-1976….It was a song about “trucking” that starred CLAUDE AKINS and FRANK CONVERSE…..remember the show “MOVIN’ ON?”

CLAUDE AKIN starred in the show….You might also remember him as “SHERIFF LOBO” on TV back in the 80’s……CLAUDE AKIN died in 1994 at the age of 67 due to cancer……

FRANK CONVERSE co-starred on the show….He has been in numerous TV projects since them…He is now 75……..

The theme song from “MOVIN’ ON” was actually a NUMBER ONE country hit back in 1975 and was performed by the legendary MERLE HAGGARD….See if you remember this…..

7. I was thinking about my Grandma Haaland the other day…..I was thinking about her cooking….There is nothing out there today like Grandma’s cooking back in the 70’s…..I would be there watching her make homemade doughnuts…..I got to eat the center part…..she made incredible banana cream pie, only rivaled by Max and Erma’s banana cream pie…..Her homemade applesauce was better than any I have ever tasted…….and she made a blueberry desert that made our mouths water…..My beautiful MAMA can make that blueberry desert just like Grandma did……AAAHH…THE MEMORIES……

8. Happy birthday wishes were going out yesterday to the great FATS DOMINO…he turned 86 yesterday……..I remember great music by this legend……

FATS DOMINO made headlines a few years back during “HURRICANE KATRINA” in LOUISIANA back in 2005…..FATS chose to stay in his house, mainly because of his wife’s poor health…..He was presumed dead, even causing one fan to write “R.I.P. FATS” on his house!!! Well, needless to say, FATS DOMINO and his family were rescued….some say he was on the roof of his home…..don’t know if that’s true or not……..

here’s FATS DOMINO recently….Happy 86th!!!

Mardi Gras Fats Domino

and, of course, we have to play a couple by this legend…..OVER 35 TOP TEN RECORDS…..many of them “GOLD” records with sales over one million copies……

Here’s the all time classic “BLUEBERRY HILL.”

and here’s one that I played the heck out of on my turntable when I was a kid….Mom and Dad had this song and I loved it!!! it’s called “DON’T COME KNOCKIN”…..

9. My main inspiration for getting into radio has a birthday today….actor HOWARD HESSEMAN turns 74 today….He was “DR. JOHNNY FEVER” on the TV show “W.K.R.P. IN CINCINNATI”….loved that show…It honestly is the reason I got into radio……I tried to pattern my show after “JOHNNY FEVER”….I felt that people needed to be entertained in the morning….people needed to wake up….so, I got wild and crazy……just like JOHNNY….

11. JOKE OF THE DAY:

There were three guys in a bar boasting about the amount of control they have over their wives after getting drunk. One said my wife never says no to me, the second one says my wife always says yes to me. After a while one of the first two turns to the third and says, “well, what about you, what sort of control do you have over your wife?” The third fellow says “I’ll tell you. Just the other night my wife came to me on her hands and knees.” The first two guys were amazed. “What happened then?” They asked. She said, “get out from under the bed and fight like a man”.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYBODY!!!
