It was another amazing Father’s Day on IWS Radio. The show started out in the usual way with some fun and frivolous witty banter between the Mat-Daddy and JayPa. We did have to play “Cat’s in the Cradle” earlier than we usually do, but it was still fun. Both Matt and Jay are excited to get a few days of high temps and NO RAIN! Plus Jay had a minor health scare Saturday morning and Matt and Schmoop had an EPIC Friday of togetherness.
There were lots and lots of Happy Father’s Day wishes handed out by the IWS Players. Some were funny, some were touching and a couple of them were … uh … angry. Then we talked about different ways of daddying. One way is the James Evans from “Good Times” way which involves beating the hell out of the kid with a belt. Other is the Andy Griffith style which is to lay on the guilt until the kid is emotionally devastated and ready for therapy by the age of 12. We make no judgements as to which is the best style.
We mourned the passing of friend of IWS Rosemary with a snippet of her legendary call back in the early days of the show. Then we somberly moved on to a brief discussion of the Charleston Shooting. By “discussion” I mean we made fun of Dylann Roof’s hair and gave him the nickname “Old Mushroom Head.” We then went on to mock Fox News and Mike Huckabee because, why not? Plus we heard from South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham who is running for president.
After that it was time for bad songs, more Father’s Day talk, and then the phone calls began. Robert the Taylor called in from all the way across the Atlantic in Scotland! IWS Radio is truly an international show. After Robert told us all about his Father’s Day activities and a bottle or two of wine it was Canadian Bureau Chief Jamie Mapleleaf’s turn to call in. Jamie was her usual sweet and charming self and brought a little class to the proceedings. Well, kind of.
Good LORD what a show! Damn, you guys really gotta check this one out! Listen early and often!
