...Tis the Season/Before It Doesn't Matter Anymore

...tis THE Season.. As Tom Waits said in The Fall of Troy: “It's hard to say grace and to sit in the place Of someone missing at the table…” We’ve just come out of the other side of Thanksgiving, barely a belch before the rush in our attempts to fill ...

Gloat Not, Lest Ye Be Gloated

Untitled document Early, during this morning's  show,my brother on the other side(Mc Farren) and  I saw a news piece from MarketWatch.com Vegans gloat, meat eaters  shrug over WHO study  linking red meat to cancer I checked w/my friend Oxford   to be sure I understood the definition of  "gloat":   gloat (about/at/over something) to ...

Who Wrote The Book Of Love

I know that most y'all who read this don't remember the Monotones' Who Wrote The Book Of Love, circa 1958, hey, I was just about 5 years old! Well, I know *who* wrote A Book of LOVE ,and had the honour of interviewing her, Judith Newman on today's show. I ...

We're Still chasing The Wrong Dragon

Everyday we're hearing about the ' opioid epidemic'. The blame game, most often, wants to demonize physicians for prescribing pain medication. Physicians are no more to blame for heroin deaths than gay men for the 'aids epidemic' ,or Blacks for the 'crack epidemic' . I realize I'll make no friends ...

Pete's Parade

Last week, legendary area broadcaster, Pete Gabriel was in studio with his lovely wife,Sandy! I had the best time with them both....and,of course, learned a lot. We talked about Pete's journey to Youngstown, and to WKBN radio Sandy(after some initial reluctance to chat) really opened up about what it was ...

"Louie, I'm Losing My Mind..."

I have a friend who tells me that his brain is no longer his ally . He tells me that he knows he's 'losing it', yet no one around him wants to believe it. His memory is fading...he gets "lost in time" and fears for the future, the near future. ...

Thank You, Dr. Heimlich

Just over 30 years ago, I was in a room where a 5 year old reached up and grabbed his mother's beautiful long blond hair....his lips were blue...he was choking on a piece of hard candy that someone had given him . A man standing close began hitting him on ...


ThanksLoving Are we wired for LOVE? The answer to that is way out of the range of intelligence of this auto-didactic radio artiste. What i do know, is that this time of year is so hard for so many. I have a dear friend who's 19 year old daughter's cancer ...

"My Mom is Dying. If You Pray, Please Pray for Her..."

I received this from  a  friend: "My mom is dying. If you pray, please pray for my mom..." -from a friend my age. We always think of how awful it is when young people lose their parents.  Someone loses mom when they were 6...someone loses their dad just before high ...

The Democrats and Republicans Win AGAIN or The 1st Gentleman of the United States of America

Today, I spoke with a dear friend who said, "When Hillary wins, Bill will be First Gentleman !"   Former president, William Jefferson Clinton, came to 'our community' recently  - now, let's be honest, what's the first thing we think of when we hear Bill's name:   Infidelity? The disappearing cigar? ...
