Kindergarten, Swearing, Church, Politics and Racism on the Radio – By Dr. Jeffrey

Did THAT headline grab your attention or WHAT? LOL ūüėČ
 
Like every group of friends with whom I’ve been affiliated since Mrs. Mathews’ Kindergarten (Class of ’69 – WOOO HOOOOO!!) , we’ve had to come up with a few rules for the Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan show. They are few, but apparently more controversial than your average Pictionary or Bunko game.
RULE #1:   No swearing.
Among many other folks, I want -nee’, NEED – for my 96 year old Aunt Edna Faye to be able tell the folks at the local retirement home, “There’s a boy on the radio you need to listen to. He’s my nephew.” George Carlin was my idol, but golly… ¬†we gotta try to keep it G rated for an hour.George !
 
REPERCUSSIONS: After over 30 shows, this one hasn’t been an issue with anyone. Just have to try and not smash my fingers with a hammer during taping. So far so good.
 
RULE #2:   No religious comments.
I explain this one in this way. If you want to say, “My God is my inspiration,” and leave it there, then we’re in good shape. A higher power is important. Ask any AA member. BUT, if you want to say, “Let me tell you about my relationship with Jesus / Allah / Buddah / Mephistopheles,” Uh, NO.
 
REPERCUSSIONS: Also hasn’t been a problem. BUT, if it ever becomes such, then I’ll be glad to give you some direction to the nearest place of worship. If you want my opinion, it’ll have to be off the air.
 
RULE #3:   No racial comments.
I don’t think I need to spell this one out.
 
REPERCUSSIONS: NONE. I can’t imagine anyone demanding that right on DJAMM. That’s all I have to say about that.
 
RULE #4.   No politics.
Now, I can’t speak for the MadMan, but for my part of it, this one is in place NOT because I PERSONALLY have any hard core beliefs or problems with any candidate at any level, (which I DO), but because I think the the state of politics¬†at any moment¬†is the most over-discussed,¬†banal, and ephemeral ball of primate poo I can think of.Perot It’s the SINGLE reason I no longer watch TV. Also the reason I’ve blocked posts and unfollowed about forty different FB friends since last October. I’ll unblock them after this November, or if my hair gets too thick and i need to pull it out before then.
I make it easy on our treasured guests; if you¬†HAVE to talk about this stuff, please do it on your own time, or start your own radio show. MadMan’s a WHIZ with anything technical. Either of us would be glad to help you. I’ll tell you everything I know about talking on the radio right now: “Read more than you watch TV. Listen more than you talk. Don’t be stupid. Be nice. Invest in a¬†good chair; your booty will thank you. ¬†The rest of it isn’t nearly as complicated.¬†
 
REPERCUSSIONS: THIS one, oddly enough, has caused a number of friends of MANY years to stop speaking to me, which I don’t get, but I still love them anyway. They’re all bright and cool and fun, but apparently sensitive about, something or another… I’m really not sure. I’m hoping their respective candidates at least make a decent showing, whichever they are. I’m not sure about that either, because when someone begins a sentence with “Well, Trump / Hillary / Bernie / Sarah / Cookie Monster,” et al, my attention goes out the window, and I’m back to sitting in Mrs Mathews’ Kindergarten again. If only I could jump in my time machine. I’d head¬†there and start over. Loved those little dollar store cookies and the watery Kool-Aid. Miss Coba Moore, you were an ANGEL !
 
Well there you have them, friends. There may be amendments as the show develops. Thank you all for listening, and as always, Peace-IN ! – Doc

DJMM 6-9-2016 Reliance Code Special

Will wonders ever cease? WE hope not ! Tonite was a very special night on DJAMM, first we kicked it all off with our favorite guest DJ, Uncle Gray the Mystery DJ, who hit us with some of his favorite vintage platters and talked about where life is leading him. As if that wasn’t enough, we were favored with the presence of a dynamic cast of burgeoning stars, aka, Reliance Code. The homegrown rock band from our hometown consists of Chris¬†Law, Josh Roach, Cody¬†Peebles, Todd Falconer, and Shane Diego. The energetic bunch opened up to us about the new face of indie rock, the trials and sacrifices involved in assembling and keeping a band together; THEN as a bonus, they dropped a FIRST-EVER public performance of an acoustic version of their crowd favorite, “I Just Wanna Be Me”. ¬†We also play their studio track Fight For Life! It just KEEPS getting better folks. If you’re missing us now, you’re missing OUT ! Peace-In, Dear Listeners ! -DJ & MM.

  3. You never listen to rock and roll before noon, unless it’s after midnight.
  4. You say ” I quit smoking five years ago,” as you’re bumming a cig and digging for your lighter.
  5. The first song you knew as a child was “Jesus Loves me”. Second song is a cafeteria choice; Either You Ain’t Nothin’ but a Hound Dog, Purple Haze, ¬†La Grange, Nikki Grind, or Big Poppa.
  6. ¬†The only other song you know all the words to is “Long Haired Country Boy” by Charlie Daniels.
  7. You think being a Yankee is a genetic flaw.
  8. Any outdoor event includes a plan to find a place to pee in the bushes.

  11. Your friends have given you at least three nicknames; none of which you will explain to a stranger.
  12. The only pronoun you ever use is “y’all.”
  13.  The last time you voted for President and were happy with your choice was in 8th Grade 4-H.
  14. You are a parent, or perhaps grandparent yourself, but you still say “Momma”, “Daddy”, “Gramaw” and “Ma’am.”
  15. You can afford anything you want for the house, but are most excited about your flea market finds, auction bargains and hand-me-down furniture from Gramaw.
