Show Notes - 12/18/2011

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Tonight we had our BIG season ending 2011 CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA! We always have a blast doing this show each year and celebrating Christmas on the air. As usual, we played some great Christmas carols and had a visit from Santa Claus who has gone slightly digital with the iPad to help him accomplish his tasks during the year and especially on Christmas Eve. Santa states that electronics are at the top of the wish lists this year and he also said that he is hearing more of the Christmas spirit this year from children, which means that maybe commercialization is not hindering the spirit of Christmas.

Later, Stacey Knoll of N.O.R.A.D. stopped by and explained the Santa Tracker system and how it all works. According to Stacey and as printed in Wikipedia; The program began on December 24, 1955 when a Sears department store placed an advertisement in a Colorado Springs newspaper which told children that they could telephone Santa Claus and included a number for them to call. However, the telephone number printed was incorrect and calls instead came through to Colorado Springs' Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Center. Colonel Shoup, who was on duty that night, told his staff to give all children that called in a "current location" for Santa Claus. A tradition began which continued when the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) replaced CONAD in 1958.

Here is a list of all the various ways that you can track Santa Claus using the Santa Tracker system:

Show Notes - 12/11/2011

Tonight on Behind The Mike, we featured musician Kara McGraw, who is instrumental in bringing acts to the show. This time she is on the show to feature a beautiful Christmas song that she wrote entitled "The Chandelier". The proceeds of the song are being sent to help aid the local Vermont farmers who were devastated by Hurricane Irene. Please visit her Facebook site below to download the song and make a donation to help the cause.

Later on the program, Barry Slinker from OldTimeRadioUSA.com stopped by to do some OTR Christmas. We talked about some nostalgic Christmas moments and played music and clips from the OTR era. We had lots of fun talking about the origins of some things from yesteryear, reminiscing and listening to some great holiday moments.

Show Notes - 12/04/2011

Tonight on the show we featured the singing duo, AZALEA. Benjamin and Mia sat down with us and talked about their "outside the box" style of writing music and we featured their hit single, Abilene, from their EP Coffee & Kisses. Check out their website below for more information and where you can grab your copy of the EP, you Hoser!

Later, we covered some real pulitzer winning news like the 30 year old Jennifer Harris, who tried to burn her friend's home down while her and her husband slept because her friend un-friended her on Facebook. Be careful who you un-friend. Then, TSA agents in Virginia razzled a 17-year old woman because she has a designer purse with a 2" embroidered handgun on the purse. Apparently, you cannot have pictures or embroidery of handguns on planes and apparently, you could get a job as a TSA agent even if you are DEAD!

Herman Cain has suspended his political campaign due to allegations of sexual affairs. Though he may have been a front-runner, he certainly had his issues with foreign affairs. Not sure he was as much a front-runner as he may have looked. However, looking at the rest of the candidates in the Republican choices, it does not look like they have anyone who can beat Obama in the election...scary!
