You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for…Barbeque

I am awarding WBKR Sales Manager Traci Davis the "Golden Smoke Pit." It's a hypothetical award because it doesn't physically exist; she'll never receive anything she can sit on her desk next to the computer. But anyone who brings in Old Hickory barbecue for lunch deserves SOMETHING. Even if it's mythical.

Conversation Threads: From Documentaries to Drill Sergeants to…Three Bean Salad?!?

 

This actually looks MUCH better than the slop I ate in 1972. (Gudlyf, Flickr.com) Let's see, how did it all begin? I was at the front desk today, chatting with Moon Mullins and Roxianne the Receptionist, and we began discussing fast food. This led to a mention of the Morgan Spurlock documentary "Super-Size Me" and the vague, if not a little dishonest, point it makes. Then came talk of the amazing and frightening documentary "Food, Inc." Then we segued to school lunches. Oh, yeah, now I remember...three bean salad.

Dave Spencer’s Favorites: The Cat, the Carburetor Fluid, and the Crazy Lady

My favorite pet when I was younger was our cat, Austin. We'd had dogs when I was a little kid, but only one of them ever took to me. And he was a great dog, but Austin ranks at the top. In fact, Austin acted like a dog--he'd come when you'd whistle. And he happens to be an integral part of one of my favorite stories.

Dave Spencer Recalls ‘Brushes with Greatness’ [VIDEO]

When I was in college, my friends and I were devoted David Letterman fans. I still am. In the 80s, Letterman had a segment called "Brushes with Greatness" during which he would go up into the audience and pick a random member and have him or her detail a "brush with greatness"--a meeting or encounter with someone famous. We sort of adopted the term and began cataloguing our own "brushes with greatness." But ours were with anyone who was even remotely famous. And over the years, I have collected a few.
