FRIDAY JULY 24, 2015 10:00 PM.. Had a great time talking with Bud Buschardt, author of The Sump'n Else Show (along with Sam Sauls). If you're a fan of early rock and roll dance shows, this is an incredible period piece you'll want to add to your collection-- even more so if you grew up in the Metroplex or just enjoyed the many phases of Ron Chapman's career. No trivia tonight-- I forgot to come up with a question, but we did have fun with some obscure oldies.
FRIDAY JULY 17, 2015 11:00 PM MT... Longer show tonight (it lasts as long as you call). As for our trivia question: In 1915 this was mailed to every American with a listed telephone number. (Hint: It was a private company that did the mailing.) What did they mail? Answer: Chewing Gum. Wrigley mailed 1.5 million packs of gum to the listed households. They did it again in 1919 and had to mail out 7 million packs.
Next Friday (July 24th), we'll talk with Bud Buschardt, author of The Sump'n Else Show joins me at 7. We'll play trivia and maybe play a couple oldies that will bring back memories you never even had right after that.
FRIDAY JULY 10, 2015 10:00 PM MT... Looking for the trivia question? Here it is: In 2000, Michael Jackson was upset. So upset he paid $150,000 to do this. Do what? Put a curse on Steven Spielberg and David Geffin for not giving him the role of Peter Pan in Hook, which came out 9 years earlier, cost $60 million to produce and bombed. should have sent Spielberg a thank you note, instead he paid a witch doctor $150,000 slap a curse on him. It was reported that 42 cows were slaughtered in the “ceremony”.
Looking for the download of the show, or the podcast? Stop now. I'll let you know when I can manage to upload the files. First I've got to figure out why I can't. But at least the replay is running continuously on the stream. That's as good as it gets for now. Apologies and promises to stay on it.
FRIDAY JULY 3, 2015 11:15 PM MT…. Happy Birthday Jerry Blavat! Hard to believe The Geator turns 75 today— even harder to believe when you see him in action on stage— like you will again tonight at Memories In Margate.
Tonight’s trivia question: More people do this per capita in New Hampshire than in any other state, followed by Nevada, North Dakota, Montana an Wisconsin. What are they doing? Drinking Beer... spo dee o dee (yeah, another beer-related question. (We'll move on to something completely different next week.)
Oh and this just in: There won't be a podcast this week. At least not at this writing. The file won't load. I won't belabor the details, but I will try to find a work around. Thanks for your patience. Remember you can always access the download at rollyestream.net.
FRIDAY JUNE 26, 2015 10:30 PM MST… The Downloads are up, Podcasts are out, and Stream is playing (the first half of the show, anyway— for some reason I haven’t been able to get the whole file uploaded to that space, but I won’t stop trying)… you’re probably here for the trivia answer, anyway. First the question: A private company paid NASA $130,000 to see whether this could be done in space— what?
The answer? Brewing beer— Beck’s paid to place a tube with beer ingredients aboard the space shuttle to determine whether beer produced in a weightless environment fermented faster and was less likely to produce a hang over — no word on the result, but in a related study Researchers at Denmark’s Delft University of Technology spent a year devising a way to get beer out a a keg and into astronauts mouths in space’s zero gravity environment. No word on who funded that either, for all I know, the astronauts pitched it so they could enjoy the results.
Talk to you next Friday 7PM Pacific (and Arizona), 10 PM Eastern.
FRIDAY JUNE 19, 2015 11:00 PM MST... As usual I forgot to give you the answer to the trivia question— but then again, all of you forgot to take a guess: Owners think they’re creative when they name their boats, but it turns out the same handles keep popping up. In the ‘90s, the number one boat name was “Serenity”. By the middle of the first decade of the new century (around 2005), it dropped to number 8. But what were the top 3 names in 2005? (Any one will do): Happy Hours, Carpe Diem, Reel Time. Other than complete lack of interest in that, it was a pretty good show, thanks to your calls. Over 3 hours long. I appreciate your participation!
FRIDAY JUNE 12, 2015 10:00 PM MST... Tonight's show is streaming, downloadable and about to go out as a podcast. But if you're just wondering about the trivia question: 11% of dating Americans have ended a relationship over this. More common causes of romantic breakups include poor communication, financial problems, lack of commitment and infidelity. But for more than 1 in 10, it's this. What? Their cat! Talk to you live next Friday night.
FRIDAY JUNE 5, 2015 11:00 PM MST... If you're looking for a replay or podcast for Friday's show (June 5th), stop now. You won't find it. I've played it here, digitized it several times and not once would it upload. So, for what ever reason, the internet overlords feel you shouldn't hear it. I know when to give up. Talk to you live on Friday (June 12th). I'd tell you this won't happen again, but until I have some semblance of an idea as to why it happened this time, it's a promise I can't make. Catch the live show if you can.
