JINGLE BELLS , JINGLE BELLS , JINGLE BELLS , JINGLE BELLS !!!

 

‘JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS’        It is the holiday season, People have already started shopping (My wife and I too).  Christmas lights are starting to pop up on homes and stores.  The Christmas sales began in ….. July and Christmas music is starting to be heard everywhere.  I MEAN EVERYWHERE!

On Thursday I went to get my haircut, the lady who usually cuts my hair broke her ankle and can’t cut hair for another couple of weeks.  My hair was long and really needed cut so I decided this once I would forgo my usual and get a haircut somewhere else.   I am kind of glad I did.  Not because of the stylist but for what happened afterward.

After my cut I decided to do a little shopping around and then I started hearing it.  A little girl singing “JINGLE BELLS”, one cute problems she only knew a few lyrics.  She sang over and over “Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, and Jingle Bells.  Everywhere I went I heard this sweet little girl singing ‘Jingle Bells”, it made my Grinch heart grow 4 sizes at least.

So this Holiday season remember I will remember that little girl and her beautiful little voice enjoying Christmas singing “JINGLE BELLS,  JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS ,JINGLE BELLS ,JINGLE BELLS”.\

I could let this weekend go by without expressing my gratitude to our Veterans.  I have always had the utmost respect for those who served.   I was considering a life in the Service when I started doing radio.   But I try to say thanks to Veterans every chance I get.

Several members of my family have served, including my Father and Uncle (his brother Edward) who was killed in France shortly after D-Day.  My Uncle Brent and Uncle Danis also served along with 2 Brother in Laws.  My admiration for these men is more than mere words can express.   So Veterans in a small simple way I say Thank You.

WHY , WHY , WHY THAT SONG

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head, you know the song that just keeps repeating in your mind over and over.   That happened to me yesterday and when I realized what song was there I wondered WHY?

Before I tell you what song it was I found and article from WebMD that gives the Top 10 “Earworm Songs”

Feb. 27, 2003 — They bore into your head. They won’t let go. There’s no known cure. Earworms can attack almost anyone at almost any time.

No, it’s not an invasion of jungle insects. It’s worse. Earworms are those songs, jingles, and tunes that get stuck inside your head. You’re almost certain to know the feeling, according to marketing professor James J. Kellaris, PhD, of the University of Cincinnati.

Nearly 98% of people have had songs stuck in their head, Kellaris reported at the recent meeting of the Society for Consumer Psychology. The 559 students — at an average age of 23 — had lots of trouble with the Chili’s “Baby Back Ribs” Jingle and with the Baha Men song “Who Let the Dogs Out.” But Kellaris found that most often, each person tends to be haunted by their own demon tunes.

“Songs with lyrics are reported as most frequently stuck (74%), followed by commercial jingles (15%) and instrumental tunes without words (11%),” Kellaris writes in his study abstract. “On average, the episodes last over a few hours and occur ‘frequently’ or ‘very frequently’ among 61.5% of the sample.”

Here’s the students’ top-10 earworm list:

  1. Other. Everyone has his or her own worst earworm.
  2. Chili’s “Baby Back Ribs” jingle.
  3. “Who Let the Dogs Out”
  4. “We Will Rock You”
  5. Kit-Kat candy-bar jingle (“Gimme a Break …”)
  6. “Mission Impossible” theme
  7. “YMCA”
  8. “Whoomp, There It Is”
  9. “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”
  10. “It’s a Small World After All”

Ok, I won’t make you wait any longer …The song that was stuck in my head all day yesterday was. Pause for dramatic effect……..

The Bunny Hop, don’t know why The Bunny Hop but I still can’t get that song out of my head……… HELP!

GET AND EXTRA HOUR OF SLEEP THEY SAID HAH!!!!!

 

This time is hard on me, I know we gained an extra hours sleep but this morning I woke up at 3:30am!  That would have been 4:30am last week right?

 

Well this is me at 6:30am

I don’t know why but this time change hits me harder that the one in the spring when we lose and hours sleep.   I really throws my body clock off.

This past summer I experience some sleep problems and after a few months of little sleep it was starting to really get to me.  I would take naps in the afternoon but that did not replace that deep sleep we all need.  Finally we found a solution to the problem and now I get a better sleep and I am starting to really feel more rested and alert.

EXCEPT THIS MORNING!

 So excuse me while I go and take a nap!

DAVID LOUIS BUFORD EARL AKA THE RADIO GUY DR OF ROCK DENTON

So what’s in a name?  If you’re Sean P. Diddy Puffy Love Brother Love Combs it means you can change it to fit your mood.  Combs made headline by saying he wanted to be called Love or Brother Love from now on.   That didn’t sit well with Pro Wrestling fans like me so I had some fun yesterday and then I come to work today and Sean say’ he was only kidding.   More on that listen here:

This blog post is named David Louis Buford Earl AKA: The Radio Guy, Dr of Rock Denton.   I too have an identity crisis.  Those are the names I have been called for years.

David Louis Denton is my real name.  Louis was my father’s name.

Buford: is a nickname I picked up at Ricks College after a friend also named David found out I was from Tn.   He was a fan of a series of movies called “WALKING TALL”   Not the one with the Rock, but the ones in the 70’s which were based on a true story of Sherriff Buford Pusser.  The story was from a county near Memphis where I grew up and I was a big Redneck so he started calling me Buford.  A nickname that a lot of people still call me.  Yep my wife calls me Buford too.

Earl:  My sister Edwina always called me David Earl what a Pearl, why?  Because she is my sister Edwina and we both have twisted humor in our DNA.

The Radio Guy:  that name comes from my radio job in Montgomery city MO.   I was getting ready to broadcast a high school basketball game in Herman Mo. And the cheerleaders were doing a fund raiser and wanted my money.  They couldn’t remember my name and yelled out “HEY RADIO GUY” I talked about on my radio show and people started calling me The Radio Guy

Dr of Rock:  that is a name the guys here at the Cache Valley media group game me when they asked me to do a show on 95.9 KLZX.  Why the Dr of Rock, because I am a wiz at Rock and roll Trivia.  One of the guys who no longer works here said you are like a Dr of Rock.  And the Dr. was born.

Recently a new friend asked me what name I prefer and I honestly said.  I answer to them all so pick one.

That’s my name:

DON’T CALL ME DIDDY!

 

People always ask me “where are you going for Thanksgiving?’  My answer is “To the table for some Turkey and Dressing, then to my recliner to watch FOOTBALL” No really is I hate traveling on any Holiday, and a lot of times that is our busy time here at KOOL.   So I stay home with my wife and then we go to my Mother in laws house for dinner.   She lives about 5 houses from us so I don’t have to fight the crowds and that is a good thing.

I do like to take time during to holidays to remember the things I am Thankful for.   The list is long, but I will keep this short

I am thankful for my wife Teresa, I cannot imagine what my life would be without her.

I am thankful for my job (if you can call this “WORK”) Getting up every day at 4:30am is not always fun, but being on the radio knowing that someone is listening is.   So Thanks for listening.

I am thankful for my health,  I have had issues the past few years and I am sure I will have more, but whatever comes I am ok with it and enjoy my life ‘

Finally I am thankful the Pilgrim’s didn’t have Liver for thanks giving dinner!

Here are some travel tips from a website called The Insider took time to crunch  the numbers from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics to figure out the best and worst times to fly around Thanksgiving to avoid the biggest crowds and longest delays.  Check ’em out . . .

  1. The best day to fly out is the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  And the second best is on Thanksgiving itself.
  2. The worst days are the Sunday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving, especially Tuesday night.
  3. When you’re going home afterwards, Black Friday is the best day to fly.  Saturday is the second best.
  4. And the Monday and Tuesday after Thanksgiving are the worst times to fly home . . . they have the most delays.

 

If you are driving or flying this Thanksgiving be safe and be Thankful for what you do have

SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP

We get an extra hour of sleep!  That is the plus to the time change this weekend.  The time officially changes at 2 am Sunday and that means you can sleep in a little.   Recently a lot of people have been asking the government to do away with the Daylight Saving time saying it causes more problems than benefits.

You got to admit, the extra hour of sunshine in the summer is nice, but for those of us who have to get up early it can be hard to go to bed when the sun is shining and you want to be enjoying yourself with friends outside.

Now the sun will go down earlier and it will be dark at 5pm soon.  But with winter coming having it become daytime earlier makes safer conditions for kids going to school.   And face it the extra hour of sleep in the fall is NICE!

Here are a couple of things happening here at KOOL 1039.  We want to congratulate our winners in the FALL HARVEST OF PRIZES!

Amy pope of Hyrum wins One Thousand Dollars in flooring from Hart Floor Company.

Nancy Lara of North Logan wins One Thousand Dollars of Christmas lighting from Christmas Décor

Brain Gardner of Wellsville wins One Thousand Dollars of fencing from Arrow Fencing.

ALSO:

Be checking your mailboxes for the” FOOD FOR FURNITURE FLYER” in it you will see how you can win your part of 20 thousand dollars of furniture from Fishers.  Not only that but you will be filling the Cache Community Food Pantry for the Holiday season.  But as they say in infomercials   ‘WAIT THERE’S MORE”   You will also find money saving coupons from area stores.

GIVE ME A HEAD WITH HAIR!

 

On the classic TV sitcom Seinfeld George was always talking about being bald.   I have thing hair myself but I am not bald —-YET—.  But really if I was I wouldn’t care.  I go with what the good Lord gave me.  Right now that means gray to almost white hair.

One day I looked in the mirror and noticed how gray I was and thought should I color it so I could look younger?   The answer was no I work on the radio, nobody sees me and besides I have the perfect face for radio.

So how did my hair get so gray so fast?  I think it was a serious illness I had in the year 2000.  Not to get into too many details but I wound up having a major surgery in 2002.  It was during that time my hair went from dark to gray.

I know a lot of people color hair, heck some go wild on color, I recently saw a woman with multicolored hair.  I told my wife her head looked like a bowl of rainbow sherbet!

I decided to write this about hair, not because I am vain (well maybe a little). But we had a stupid news story today about a lady freaking out after getting a speeding ticket.  Listen to Stupid News here

And the morning Laff lines was also about being Bald.

As a bonus for blog readers here is George Carlin and his classic poem about HAIR!

DID I REALLY HAVE CANDY FOR BREAKFAST? YEP

Admit it you had candy for Breakfast today, well most of us did….. Yes you know I did.

We were prepared for a lot of Trick or Treaters and I even put some of my Star Wars and Super Hero collection out for people to see.  But where were the kids.  We had a few but not near as many as last year.  I would talk to a lot of the Trick or Treaters and comment on the costume they were wearing.  One family had a child dressed as Batman (you know I loved that) and Venom.  I said “Wow it’s Batman and Venom too”.  Then there was a young man who didn’t have a costume on who immediately said “And a Human”.   Made me laugh out loud.  Thanks Human Kid.     Just before we finished for the night there was a whole family of Humans 6 kids no costumes, nothing, nada, nope!  But we had gobs of candy so HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

We have a new voice starting today on KOOL 1039.  Please welcome Aaronee.   She joined me on the air today and told us more about her.  Listen here

STINKING TO HIGH HEAVEAN

 

There are times in your life you just know that you will remember something that happened that will be the source of laughter in your family.    One of those happened to me this weekend

My wife and I were on I-80 on our way to Park city on Saturday to see some friends play Hockey.   As I approached a slow moving Semi I put on my turn signal (safety 1st) and as I changed lanes there it was in the middle of the road with no time to react A DEAD SKUNK!  And as the song says “Stinking to High Heaven”.   Yep, that smell got all over my car!   You can stop laughing now!   The smell is almost gone?

That was just a part of a great weekend!  We had a visit from two little girls and I spent most of the weekend laughing as my wife and this 12 year old and 8 year old were having a great time.   I wish I had just a little of the energy of these two kids.  Heck I wish I had any energy at all.

That was my weekend a smelly fun weekend that I will always remember!
