The baby New Year needs to change his diaper!


2019 feels like 2018 to me

With all the activities around the Christmas and New Year’s holiday I am dreading getting back into life.

A new survey on Yahoo says that the average person takes four days to get back into the swing of things after the holiday.  Well I am not average

I have the hum drums

You know the hum drums, were we just power push through the day doing the same things over and over.  You know what, I like it that way sometimes.

I get up Monday through Friday at 4:15am and arrive at the station at 5am.  Let me tell you I am not a morning person, I grumble take a shower and try to prepare myself for the rest of the day.  If you were in my car as I came to work you would hear me talking to myself and making strange noises to warm up my voice.

Then my Hum drum life kicks into gear as I go through my morning routine.  Yes I do more than just play songs and sing along all morning long……. Well I admit sometimes I do (I am glad we don’t have a studio camera)

My Hum Drum Life continues behind the scenes here at KOOL 103.9.  I have people who say I have a cushy job.  Pretty much so!!! No I love my job but it is not cushy. It is not a 9 to 5 job for sure and I am usually home in the afternoons.  But often after lunch I am back here working on different projects and ideas for KOOL

My Hum Drum Life takes me home where I work on the Podcast Turnbuckletrash.net.   I even find the time to do a few dishes and a little laundry.   (Notice the words few and little I am a man after all).

Then my Hum Drum life becomes great, why because my wife gets home and we get to Hum Drum together and that’s just the way I like it

I love the game of Football!

Watching the crazy finish of the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles just reminded me of why I love football and sports in General.

As the bear line up for the game winning kick and having it drink, not once but twice.  IT WAS A DOUBLE DOINK.

There are so many great memories of game winning plays.

The Music city Miracle with all the laterals that gave the Titians the win

Mike jones tackles Kevin Dyson as the Rams beat the Tennessee titans in the Super bowl.  My wife were at a Party with about 75 people with half for the Rams and half for the titans.   We had a blast.  The Party room at the old Ruby Tuesday’s in Logan would never be the same again.

BYU winning the Holiday bowl on Jim McMahons Hail Mary to beat UNLV.

Doug Flutie’s Hail Mary to beat Miami.

Boise State’s Statue of Liberty play to win the game against Oklahoma in the Fiesta bowl.  Ok Aggie fans you got to admit it was KOOL to see and then the Marriage Proposal.  OH YEAH.

But I would say my favorite was THE CATCH!

If I thought long and hard for other sports we could go on and on  moments like  Tigers put at the masters that seemed to stop just short of the  cups showing the Nike swoosh then dropping in !    John Stockton sending the Jazz to the Playoff or when Michael Jordan pushed of on B- Russ.  (Yes I am bitter)

I love sports and tonight I will be rooting for Alabama, not because I love the Crimson Tide or even Elephants. I just like to say ROLL TIDE

Why is it so hard to get back into our routine

Thursday was a day that made me respect the men and women who keep us safe even more.   A drug deal goes bad and guns were involved.  A huge fire in Smithfield.

Do we give enough credit and respect to law enforcement and 1st responders.  I can only answer for me when I say that we need to be better at it.

Like a lot of you I have been addicted to the A & E show Live PD.  Recently they added a Body Camera show too.  I think watching these shows can give you just a glimpse into the dangers they face every day and doing it willingly.

Traffic stops that become high speed chases, or a DUI case.  Things can get crazy very fast.  Domestic violence calls, finding cases of child abuse and more.

Then there are the idiots who think they know more than Police.  One memorable moment on Live PD was a traffic stop and the man told police while behind the wheel that he was not driving, he was traveling. SAY WHAT!  People being searched and police find drugs and you here “Those aren’t my pants, I didn’t know that was in there”

However there was one time that I Dave Denton did know something that an officer did not.   I wasn’t breaking any laws but I had been in an accident and the officer was checking my ID.  There was a problem with my address on the license.   I had recently moved and had place my new address on the back of license as instructed by the DMV (I am not sure if this is still the case).  The officer checked with dispatch and I was right!  Nany Nany BOO BOO!   Actually we had good laugh about that sitting in his patrol car.  The officer was so cool about the whole thing and making sure my wife and I were not injured in the accident.

Then there is the response to a question “How many drinks have you had “and the answer is “about 2 beers” all the while they have trouble standing.

I know there are bad cops out there and sometimes when we interact with them it seems they can be harsh.  Just remember they deal day to day with people who lie to them.  They don’t know me and they probably don’t know you but they need to interact with you and me in a way that protects both you and the officer.  Just co-operate the best you can.  Give them so R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

They come in three’s and that happened on January 2nd 2019…

Three celebrities in three very defend forms of entertainment passed away.   I was a big fan of all three.

Bob Einstein died at the age of 76.  Most people will remember his role on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” However Bob will always be SUPER DAVE OSBORNE.

Super Dave the character was a stuntman whose stunts never worked out.  Bob’s deadpan delivery showed what a massive talent he was.   He was a frequent guest on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson

Bob also was a writer and sometime actor on The Smothers Brothers Comedy hour.

In pop music of the 70’s a husband and wife duo was one of the hottest acts of the mid 70’s.  the Captain and Tennille burst on the scene and hit # 1 with” Love will keep us together.”  Other hits included “Shop Around” and “Do that to me one more time”  My favorite songs from them is a song I consider one of the greatest and sexiest love songs ever is “ The Way I Want To Touch You”

A lot of cold showers because of that song.

Then to hear of the death of Mean Gene Okerlund came as a shock to me.  His fame came in the world of PRO Wrestling.  I was watch Mean Gene when he was part of the old “AWA” But Gene would become a household name in the 80’s with the Popularity of such stars like Hulk Hogan, randy Macho Man Savage, Jake the Snake, the Million Dollar man and Psyco Syd.  Mean Gene always had that look on his face that always looked like “I know that your know, but don’t tell anyone else”

They come in three’s but I cannot remember a time when three celebrities from three diverse forms of entertainment all died on one day.

I am just glad I got to enjoy the talents the shared with us.

 January 2nd can really be depressing.  The holidays are over and there are very few things to look forward too.  It’s cold, we have inversion and dang we have to go back to work and school.  Did I mention it is cold?

“Sigh” it can be depressing on January 2nd.

Well I Dave Denton will try to bring a little hope a little joy to our worlds.  How?  Heck I don’t know,

There are some positives to January 2nd.

We actually have snow on the ground.  Winter sports lovers didn’t get much to play with last year.

The final season of Gotham begins this week, I will be depressed after that.

Sitting by a warm fire place is nice.

There are a few little holidays to that we can look forward to in January that can take some of the doldrums’ away.  Like tomorrow January 3rd is Women Rock day.

Friday is Spaghetti day

January 7th is Old Rock Day.  “As donkey said in Shriek.  “That’s a nice bolder, I love what you have done with that bolder.

I can’t wait for January 9th because it will be National Static electricity day (I am already rubbing my shoes on the carpet in anticipation)

January 17th is National ditch your New year Resolutions day.  Let’s meet at an ice cream store

January 22 is hot sauce day

And a Holiday that I am really looking forward to is Sunday January 27th.  CHOCALATE CAKE DAY!  There are so many variations you can go with.  My personal favorite Yellow Cake with Chocolate frosting.

So today January 2nd can really be a downer but having something to look forward to help.

By the way don’t tell Aaronee about the Static Electricity day.  I have something special for her that day!!!!!!!

Do you make New Year’s Resolutions, I have a few times but not to great success.  You know the ones.  I will lose weight this year!  I will exercise, I will stop being a jerk to people who don’t agree with everything I put on Facebook.

Well that is one I wish more people would do.


Here are some other New Year’s resolution you might want to try in 2019

I will stop worrying that I worry so much.

I will not bore my boss by with the same excuse for taking time off.   I will think of some more excuses!

I will do less laundry and use more deodorant.

I will give up chocolates totally.  I thought you might want a good laugh!

I will give up Bacon.  Yep I will no longer eat Bacon.  Oh who am I kidding!

I will find out why the correspondence course on “Mail Fraud” that I purchased never showed up.

I will start buying lottery tickets at a luckier store.

I will always “check for paper” when leaving the restroom.

I will try to drive closer to the speed limit. Oh who am I kidding

I will keep an extra safe distance when driving behind police cars.
I will stop saying,” Ooh, that feels nice” whenever the security guys frisk me at airports.

I will never again take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.


Happy New Year:

On a personal note I want to thank you for all your kind words during 2018.  I love what I do every morning.   Like most jobs being on the radio can be hard.  But I do love what I do.   When I think about my job I can honestly say, I don’t have a job I have fun.

Let’s be thankful for our blessing and strive to have a great 2019

On the Big Bang Theory Auqaman was a hero to make fun of.  Now Auqaman is so KOOL even the geeks and nerds love him.
I am one of the geeks who now is a fan of Auqaman.  (I am to KOOL to be a nerd) THE MOVIE WAS AWESOME…

My wife and I went to see the show on Thursday afternoon and from the beginning to the end I loved it.  Even if the 1st explosion almost made me spill my huge tub of popcorn with extra butter flavored gunk.

As you know I love Superhero’s stories. DC heroes are my favorites.   I grew up watching show’s like Super Friends so I geeked out at a scene in the movie when a young Arthur was on a class field trip at an aquarium and he used his abilities to talk to the fish with a special effect similar to one they used on Super Friends.

The people of DC really got this one right.   The other movies are good but when compared to the Marvel movies they are mostly not as good.  (Thor’s Ragnor Rock is the exception, boy that movie was awful!)  How did they get it right, moments that mad you smile or laugh.  Look back at the other Dc films and they were so dark.  The powers that be at DC forgot the element of fun in the movies.   Without Harley Quinn Suicide Squad would have been as bad as Ragnor Rock.

I won’t get into any spoilers because I highly recommend this movie.    Go see it.

I spent a great Christmas day with family and friends.   Opening presents to each other watching the reaction of a friend’s teenage boy getting the gift of his first car, feeling the emotions of love that come with Christmas.

But let me tell you something Christmas wore me out!  I am bushed.  I suspect it is a combination of things that added up.  Fun, stress and lots of food!

The hustle and bustle of Christmas time kept adding up until about 3 pm when it was all I could do to not go the bed.   Yes it was nap time but it wasn’t enough





Such a wonder phrase, wishing someone the best.  Expressing your believe in Jesus Christ.  At the same time it means wishing someone happiness.

How did saying Merry Christmas become controversial in today’s P.C. world?  Without getting to political I think it comes from people who are not happy themselves.  Let me explain.

I am a happy man, with a wonderful wife and a great job.  I try not to let things upset me too much.   So a few years ago when the thought police started saying they were offended by the term “Merry Christmas” and its use in retail and in our Government.   I ask what the big deal is.  I know there are people who don’t have the same beliefs as I do, and I respect that.   But by trying to limit my use of the term “Merry Christmas” you offend me!  So who is more offended and who is more harmed.


I offer you this, those that get offended by Merry Christmas.  Say whatever you want back to me.    I say Merry Christmas as a way to wish you the best.  If you would like to wish me the best say it whatever way you want.  The only way you will offend me is by making a big deal out of a salutation that means a lot to me.

So lighten up, life is too short to be angry over very little.

Reserve your anger for more important matters.

Let’s take this time of the year which can take on so many meaning from religious to the secular and just lighten up and enjoy our friends and families in what every way you would like.  You won’t offend me just like I am not trying to offend you when I say.





Have a KOOL Yule!


Clark W. Griswold had a memorable Christmas, but not just the kind we usually associate with Christmas.  But we all remember his trials of the season.

I haven’t had horrible things happen on Christmas, but they have been unusual enough that every year I flash back to them and some even kind of fondly.

I was just a teen when one of my sisters was in the hospital and her husband went to see her but did the wrong thing by leaving packages visible in his car.  Yep someone stole everything.  Not a great memory but a lesson learned.

There was a great memory with it.  My sister was on some heavy duty meds.   In other words she was whapped out and talking to her was really funny.   She even looked out the windows and started talking to the clouds who she thought were actors from “Days of Our Lives.”

I was working at a station in central Louisiana and had volunteered to work all day on Christmas.  One problem – I had the flu.  I was really sick but wanted my co-workers to be with family.

My boss’s mother found out I was working without family near and sick.   That would not do for Mrs. CoCo.   She showed up at the station with her son and in a very strong Cajun accent told me she had a Cajun cure.  Better than Chicken soup.  SEAFOOD GUMBO.  I thanked her and thought I time to chow down on some good Cajun food.

One problem, I had the flu and when I opened the Tupperware looked in the bowl to see a large crab and lots of shrimp still in the shell which seemed strange to me but the smell of seafood gumbo was overwhelming.   I thought I was going to well lose everything I had consumed in my life.   Luckily I controlled the urge to purge but the Seafood gumbo wound up in the garbage.

Another Christmas found another sister in the hospital and I don’t think she was happy that her sisters and baby brother didn’t wake up early to o Christmas presents.  She wanted to listen to us open on the phone.   That was actually pretty cool.  But Judy needed to open her gifts so we packed them up and off the hospital we go.   To see her.   As we neared her room I slipped into a Santa voice wishes everyone there a Merry Christmas.

Being away from home or being alone at Christmas can be depressing. However over the years I found ways to enjoy the season including a tradition that had to stop when I got married.   Every year I would buy me a present from Me to Me.  I would even do my usual horrible wrapping skills and on Christmas day I would wish myself a Merry Christmas.

As I write this I think that a new Christmas tradition will be started.


I hope you can find joy in the Christmas season even if times are tough.  There is still magical things to see and do.   Some as simple as saying Merry Christmas to yourself.
