It is said that a movie as great as “The Godfather” will never be shot again. One of the reasons being that no modern director will ever let the amount of time go by without action as Coppolla did. In God Father II he showed Michael arriving home one night and while still dressed in his coat and hat he stood quietly in the doorway just watching his wife sleep. Suddenly he pulled her to the floor only moments before bullets riddled the room.
That scene reminded me of one of my favorite listens to Ron Chapman, the Godfather of Morning Radio.(They actually pay me to do this sort of thing.) On this particular still dark out morning Ron says … OK get yourself a fresh cup of coffee and I’ll meet you after the break from high a top KVIL. He actually crawled up a ladder and went through a small trap door which led to the roof while dragging an extended microphone cord behind him. After the commercial break Ron came back on the air and said, Alright lets enjoy a little coffee as we watch this beautiful sunrise together. He then spent about 12 minutes describing in intimate detail just how magnificent that sunrise really was and also explained how lucky we were to be living in Dallas Texas where this kind of thing happens all the time. It was a breathtaking performance which is also unlikely to ever be heard again. Sorry you missed it!
Fear is a great motivator. I remember the chill that swept through my body when my Father informed me that if he bought my clothes he was going to buy me the clothes he wanted me to wear. I became part of the work force very early on.
Women don’t realize that the special night they gave us as a reward is not special anymore, it’s now on the menu!
Why does the far left and the far right both call their opinions balanced.
I’ve been asked if I’m a Womanizer. I don’t think so, but if I am, I’m not very good at it.
A great Man accomplishes a lot more great things when he has a great Woman in his corner.
What if the Hokey Pokey ain’t what it’s all about!
My relationship with sales began with a guy by the name Cy Brownstone in Winnipeg when I was a production board op at CKY. Occasionally when I helped him out of a bind he would reward me with one movie pass. Surely I’ve let that go by now.
I still remember all the things that used to get my attention when I was just a listener to Radio and they still work till this day.
The real you is the person who does what he does when he thinks no one is watching.
Becoming successful is one of the most stressful things you’ll ever go through.
