Show Notes - 12/28/2010

Happy Holidays from all of us at the Behind the Mike Show!

Tonight, we had a conversation with Christina Wagner, a very busy person indeed. Christina manages several websites. One is DarnGoodDeals.com where she spends time featuring local businesses and local deals. She further informs us that by Googling the term, local first, you can learn more about the movement going on regarding moving people in the direction of shopping with local businesses versus the "big guys" because among other positive things, it puts money back into the local community. She also spoke about her other passion, social media and her website AZDealGirl.com which deals with all aspects of social media, how to use it and what you can do to change up your social presence a little. Her valuable information is just a browser step away!

From all of us to all of you, have a SAFE and HAPPY NEW Year! We want to see you back right here in 2011!

Show Notes - 12/26/2010

Another wonderful evening on the show..We spoke with Phil Blizzard who invented a little thing called the Thundershirt. This device is a shirt for dogs who have anxiety issues such as thunder fright, fireworks fright, separation anxiety and a host of other related issues. Simply put it is a device that calms you doggie down without the use of medication. Phil does a lot of work with animal shelters and animal rescues as well and has donated thousands of Thundershirts to them to help anxious dogs. In his first year and a half of business, this item has helped tens of thousands of dogs. Perhaps your dog needs one? Click his link below to learn more about Thundershirt and how you can get one.

Next up, our resident career coach Kay Stout joined us for a different Ideas for a Challenging Economy segment; she discussed some of her client success stories. We decided to take this route for the holidays and show people who are looking for work that there are success stories from all different people with different ideas of what they want to do. You might be surprised at one or two of them..we were! Also, Kay talked a bit about Facebook and some definitive DON'TS about posting in relation to your work status or job search status. Tune in and find out more.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!

Tonight on a very special Behind The Mike Show, we featured an Old Time Radio presentation of Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL for your holiday enjoyment.

The version that we aired originally aired on CBS Radio on Christmas Eve 1939 and was performed by the Campbell's Theater under the direction of Orson Wells. The title role of Ebenezer Scrooge was played by the very wonderful Lionel Barrymore.

We hope that you enjoyed this presentation as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. From the Behind The Mike family to your family we wish you the Merriest Christmas and a Happy & Joyous New Year!

2010 CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA

Tonight on the show, we celebrated our favorite show of the year, the Christmas show. We hung up all the news and politics and we focused on fun and holidays.

Some of the highlights included:

Santa Claus: That's right, we interviewed the very man himself. Santa came by to send out a Christmas message to all the boys and girls from age two to ninety-two. We spoke to him about preparations at the North Pole for the big Christmas Eve run and some hints on what Santa likes on the special plate set out for him.

NORAD Santa Tracker: Once again, Lt. Desmond James of NORAD joined us for a briefing on how the whole Santa Tracker thing works. He explained the sophisticated software used to protect Santa when he is in NORAD's air space and how simply that all translates to their web service that allows parents and children to track Santa'a progress all over the world on Christmas Eve.

We had a lot of fun playing some favorite holiday songs, telling of fond holiday memories and we had our two very good friends Ray Gauthier and Grango (from "Back To The 80s") check in from the North Pole and you would not believe what magical things happened to them up there. So if you missed the LIVE show, then consider downloading this one to your iPod or favorite MP3 player (or computer) and listen on demand.

Show Notes - 12/12/2010

Tonight's show was a bit off kilter as our guest was unfounded. We still made attempts to discuss some of the topic material of holiday foods, entertaining and parties. Tony and Joel discussed some of their own Christmas traditions and also some of the things about society that have changed in the past two to three decades.

Later some discussion into a partial list of the many adaptations of Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL and how it is one of the most adapted stories in literature. The story has been performed in theater, film, television, radio and more in a nearly countless number of performances. On the show Tuesday December 21, 2010 the Campbell's Soup Theater version, which was aired originally on CBS Radio on December 24, 1939, will be aired.

IN REMEMBRANCE:
Pearl Harbor - December 7, 1941
"A Day That Will Live in Infamy"

Tonight on the show we spoke with Phil Margo. Phil is best known for being a founding member of THE TOKENS. He has been a very busy man doing music production, television production, writing and here tonight talking about his book, The Null Quotient. His book is a well done science-fiction novel that is easy to follow and reads very fast. It has a terrific blend of action, romance and all the sci-fi you can handle. Phil spoke about many of the things that he does in life and if we learned one important thing about him, Phil is having FUN.

Please visit his websites below and get the book, it's a great book, it's a lot of fun. We'll sure have Phil back again as he was a lot of fun speaking with. In fact, Stan Lee had this endorsement for the book: "Wow! Leave it to the hyper-talented Phil Margo to come up with an original, exciting, thrill-a-minute take on the theme of Earth's immanent destruction. 'The Null Quotient' has best-seller written all over it- and I can't wait to see the ...movie that's sure to come! Have a good trip, Phil."

Show Notes - 12/05/2010

Tonight on the program we discussed "Brain Aging" with Mark Underwood. Mark is a Neuroscience Researcher who has found that there is a protein in jellyfish that compensates for a protein that our body makes to keep our minds fresh. Mark stated that around the age of 40, the brain starts to age and therefore things falter such as remembering where your car keys are or maybe even having a slip of memory while talking to someone. Mark tells of the supplement that his company, Quincy Bioscience, has created, tested and is marketing called Prevagen.

To obtain information or have questions about the product, you can call them TOLL FREE (888) 814-0814. You can also request a FREE booklet, Brain Health Guide. So give them a call or check out the website below.
