Radio Geo’s Media Blog (Tantalizing Temptations) New 3/13/23

Recently I was writing about KVIL’s Ron Chapman’s retirement, which reminded me of having lunch with him when he was at the height of his popularity.
Not only did almost every female in Dallas between the ages of 20 and 50 listen to his show, but they also adored him.

Anyway, while we were having lunch one day in a popular restaurant in Hyland Park, a couple of lovely ladies came over to say hi to Ron.
After gushing over him for quite a while, when they finally left, and because they all looked like Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, I couldn’t help but ask how he resisted tantalizing temptations such as they were.

Ron responded, “Whenever a beautiful woman approaches me, I ask myself, is she worth paying all her Visa bills? Very few can pass that test.”
Rest in peace, Ron, miss ya!

The acquisition of knowledge could be the best purchase you ever made.

What I need help understanding is if Gisele loved Tom, how the hell could she walk away? No Man could ever do that.

So, as bad as women claim they’re doing, how come more of them aren’t on the street begging for money or part of the homeless? nation?

Who’s more corrupt, cops or politicians?

The talk at BJ’s is a backlash coming.

Don’t you think that each state should decide on the hard issues?

What the hell do the rich politicians from DC know about life elsewhere?

If you can’t trust the word of a corrupt cop or a politician, who the hell can you trust?

Is it just me, or does the left seem to support any issue or anybody that is ant-America?

Somewhere between your being too cautious or something being too risky is exactly what you should do.

Only the person in charge can be wrong.

Gun Control: Shouldn’t we take the crazy people with guns off the street first?

If you’d rather be at work, you’re closer to a successful career.

Unfortunately, the Laws and rules only change when they benefit one of our protected minorities, the rich.

How’s that old song go, “You Always Hurt The One You Love.” Well, it’s true; nobody else gives a shit. 

Somewhere Trump and Biden lies the Truth.

It must be very hard to believe in God when your child dies.

Do promises have an expiration date?

The only time politicians care about what the majority wants is when they’re running for reelection.

Most men dream about fantasy women; most women dream about a fantasy life.

I can’t be the only one that realizes that the protests about the Viet Nam war weren’t about the war; they were about the draft.
We’re still fighting the same bullshit wars, but when you look around, do you see any protesters?

Is anybody not doing it for the money?

I don’t believe that the color of our skin has anything to do with anything. It’s the cultural differences that will be tough to overcome.

Since the King Arthur days, we’ve been trying to convert the Arabs to Christianity; why do we care?

It’s not about working hard; it’s about accomplishing something.

Damn, the legendary coach, Bud Grant of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, just passed away at 95.

Jed Duval: George: Your comment about Hispanics not complaining about discrimination as much as perhaps other groups at this time is something true about most immigrants in this country.  The truly exploited and downtrodden ethnic groups in the history of this country (from the 1630s to today) have mostly found that despite the barriers of language, social customs, discrimination at many levels and so forth, men and women found that they had freedoms to work around those barriers, much like your journey to radio stardom.  When one reads of the poor Eastern European Jews, for example, who came to the U.S. and Canada at the turn of the 20th Century, like Adolph Zukor (Paramount), the Warner brothers, Louis B. Mayer, Samuel Goldwyn and Carl Laemmle (Universal), to develop the film industry on the west coast and elude the Edison patent police, one can make the case of how oppressed immigrants, once given opportunity to grow and prosper can do just that.  When I lived in Des Moines, Iowa, working at KIOA-AM and a couple years later at WHO-AM, it was resettled Vietnamese refugees that had developed a thriving community for small businesses that were catering to the neon cornfield crowd.  On the southside of Indianapolis, political asylum refugees from Myanmar (Burma), have in ten-years begun to assimilate and prosper (with many of their children in my K-12 substitute teaching classes within Perry Township now grown up working in businesses and attending college).  Sadly, our national, regional and local news coverage focuses on the bad things that involve a few immigrants (and I do believe that Bill O’Reilly’s statement that 10 % of the human race is truly evil is likely accurate), but ignores the achievements of those, like you George, who took great simple ideas and became an outstanding success.  I see many Hispanics and other immigrants who find ways to contribute to the great story that is this country.  We are, except for the Native Americans, who greeted the explorers when they came ashore, a continent of immigrants, and God bless us all in peace.(Sales Savages)
Geo: As usual, good stuff, Jed.

Bob Glasco: I know what you mean about protecting daughters, George. I have 4 of them, 3 of which I was a single parent to. Funny, as you get older, they try to protect you! (Punished or Blessed?)
Geo: That is so true, Bob, especially from other women. 🙂

  1. “I can’t be the only one that realizes that the protests about the Viet Nam war weren’t about the war; they were about the draft.

    – I think a lot of people aren’t interested in wars, but they are very interested in their kids having to fight them. (Tantalizing Temptations)
    Geo: So true, Steve. The only people fighting wars now, it seems, are those who want to.

  2. Tim Moore: Major Wars appear to be out of fashion. But maintaining the World’s best military helps keep it that way!
    My Dad flew 48 missions in WW2, piloting our fastest Bomber at that time (Martin’s B-26). Then, after coming home and finishing his Degree, he was recalled by SAC (Strategic Air Command) for Korea. He never resented it though It sure created havoc with his early coaching career!
    Geo: I agree with maintaining our military status, Tim, but as I’ve said many times, “We have to support our troops, but we don’t have to support the fools who keep sending them to war. I remember when folks used today, “Hey, what if there aren’t any WMD in Iraq?” Now they argue about Transgenders instead.
