Evening steel. Never heard of Let George Do It or The Clock.

Am looking forward to it.

How are things?

“Let George Do It” is pretty good. It was Bob Bailey’s regular gig before YTJD.

Sweltering. Don't mean to complain but my air conditioning has gone out. The repairman failed to show when we got another torrential downpour at the appointed hour.

Hello, SteelYourFaith and Vision!

Keith and I are in under the wire. We’re installing a new irrigation system with zoysia sod to come at a customer’s house. It’s a big job, and very hard, hot work. We’re tired and looking forward to the shows.

I hope you both are well!

Very good mix of shows!
Many of my favorites!
Probably have to record it for later, but I’m certainly looking forward to it!

Sorry to hear that. When can the guy come out?

Baltimore is hot, humid, and rainy and I'd be unhappy without the ac.

These damn pepsi commercials. Maybe people don't want to be sociable with a bossy chic like yourself lady. Barf.

Lux and Gunsmoke!
I love how the movies on Lux are every bit as good to listen to as they are to watch!
The stories and production values on Gunsmoke are not to be surpassed!
We are so lucky that those 2 shows in particular went on for many years!

Do you have favorites series?

The Pepsi lady is irritating. She tries to sound “sultry” and bossy about—Pepsi? Good grief. Sociability-pshaw! People have beer, wine or cocktails to be “sociable.”

Oh, man! SteelYourFaith, I know how hot it is down there! Bless your heart. It’s hard to sleep when it’s warm. I hope it gets fixed soon.

You smoked some cheese! How do you smoke cheese without getting it hot? I guess there’s a trick to it! It sounds wonderful!

Thanx, Gina. It’s one of those things often taken for granted but when it’s gone it sure is missed.

All those are very good, especially Jack Benny!
I’m working on completing my Jack Benny collection.
Good stuff!

Evening, Vision.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Got it! Wonderful! Thanks, Vision. Keith said he recently saw some smoked cheese discussions, too. We’ll have to try that. Great photographs, too.

I hope you have some fans to aim on you while you lie on top of your covers! :-)

I also hope you’re not in for that tropical storm/hurricane headed into Florida. It does not appear to be going into the Gulf, but it’s really to early to say.

What a rude blow to the Big Broadcast! A young info-babe blabbering about the illegal war Obama has us in in Libya.

The station screwed up. I don’t know if we’ll get the show back.

Yes, right as Bob Bailey starts doing his thing NPR does into propaganda mode.

The local line is busy some everyone must be calling in...

They’d better HEAR about this. This is a scheduled program, and many people listen to it.

I have no doubt that some flaming leftist hit a switcher on this program. I know those punk communists who inhabit NPR don’t like this all-American program.

I am quite angry.

National propaganda radio is rejoicing over yet another north African country falling to “You know who”.

Yea, the few minutes I listened the two propagandists were telling listeners how great Hillary and Obama are. Barf. If they’re so great you don’t need paid government radio telling people this...and people will think it on their own.
