When Kay Ville was but a young lass growing up in the exclusive Dallas suburb of Highland Park, Ron Chapman could occasionally be heard on the radio saying, “Ok, get yourself a fresh cup of coffee and when we return you’ll be joining me on the roof where we will watch the sunrise together.
Oh, and if you’re already in the car, pop into a 711 where they’ve got a fresh pot brewing right now.”(of course, every cup had a big ol’ picture of Ron on it) As the commercials played, Ron (pictured above with me at one of his three ‘Hall Of Fame’ inductions.) would grab the mic with the extra long cord and quickly make his way up the ladder and through the trap door which led to KVIL’s roof. When the commercial break was over, he would begin to describe every nuance of the slowly rising sun that he could see on the Dallas horizon. It was one of the most exhilarating things I’ve ever heard on the radio. In fact, it sounded so good that I wanted to live in Dallas just so I could experience that breathtaking moment with them. Even the Beatles couldn’t compete with any of that let alone another Dallas radio station.
OK, IF YOU’VE GOT A MINUTE I HAVE A FEW OTHER THOUGHTS…
Ok, if not that, maybe some armed undercover guys at places of worship and other places that innocent people congregate. Lord knows what with all the different police departments, the FBI, the CIA, Homeland Security, the secret service, and the National Guard, we have a few folks that could help out.
Was that a Hollywood ending or what? A Rookie comes off the bench and wins Bama the National title.
Speaking of football, every game has a hero and a goat. I think the goat of the Saints/ Vikings game deserves as much camera time as the hero.
Ok, I’ve got my Superbowl plans all set, I’m gonna watch it in California. I know it’s not being played there but I was born 500 miles north of where it is being played, why would I wanna go there this time of year?
Did anyone else notice that Governor Brown who recently raised the gas tax plus a few other things in California, also gave himself a raise to cover his extra out of pocket?
Speaking of politics, If I was Oprah I wouldn’t move too fast towards the oval office. I don’t think all the women in America have forgiven her for turning her back on Hilary and backing Obama for his first term.
Speaking of Oprah, I love that picture plastered all over Facebook showing how close she and old Harvey were. I bet the ladies love that.
I wonder what Dee-Jays from this decade will end up in the National Hall Of Fame, hopefully not a voice tracker.
I swear, Brady just uses the second half to figure out what he’s going to do in the 2nd half to win it.
So what are we all upset about, the fact that Trump may have used the word shit hole or that the countries he was talking about are shit holes? If they weren’t, millions of people from them wouldn’t be trying to come to the US.
Wow, speaking of Trump, my recent posting about him is already bigger than my most read post of last year. If you missed it, click on the link below.
