The Artist Formerly Known as The Outlaw Tommy Smith was working this morning on The Show With No Name with a toothache. David Bazzel's charming good looks and my quick wit could not wipe away the pain. The only thing that gave him any comfort was the old trusted bottle of Anbesol. This topical treatment, as we all know, is great........the first time you use it. After that the only thing it's good for is chewing on a numb tongue. Oh sure I'm the only one that's done that. Right!
On the other hand, not only did 'Wild Man' Steve Wilson bring a smile to Tommy's face, he also brought Steve Filiphek to warn us of the dried up creek beds. The Humanity!!
Matt Couch brings it every week. Today was no different for the guy that says man never walked on the moon. 'Cougar Bait' Couch also says to me.......T*%#@ $**I# Roger!! Alrighty Then! The next big thing that The Buzz is involved in before the official start of football season is The American Cancer Society Live In For Life. This is where most of the on-air staff live in the same building/space for 3 days and 2 nights. Newcomer Matt Couch and 1st timer Melinda Mayo of Good Morning Arkansas are all in this year. I know before it's all over there will be bloodshed. It just happens. Last year for instance, Pat Bradley woke up with blood all over his body like the man with the horse head in his bed in The Godfather. He doesn't remember to this day where it came from but, he did write an apology. I don't know. We will play some games to keep us occupied during our stay-cation. It won't be Match Game because that's regulated to Wednesdays on the program with Matt. Today's version included me enlightening the gang and flexing my street cred muscle.
It's that time of year good people. The tour of Arkansas Redneck Capital nominees is upon us. We should wrap up the competition on our drive up to Mt. Nebo this afternoon. Delight, Clinton, and Bald Knob are the club house leaders at this point. Sheridan has been placed in The Arkansas Redneck Capital Hall of Fame. We need to present them with a plaque for that accomplishment.
Rolling Stone Magazine has the latest list of the Top Guitarist of All Time. Christian Hoard spoke with us via the tele this morning. He can't explain why Elvis is not on that list! And so close to the anniversary of the death of the poor, humble, King of R&R, from Tupelo.
Good time for a Hump Day ....oh yea i almost forgot....Yesterday i said that I would speak about another portion of the trip to Boston. It involved my involvement with, well, some Goodfellas. I was forwarded an email from my immediate supervisor that suggested that I NOT speak about meeting certain guys that go by the names, Fat Tony, Lil Anthony, and Sonny 'Eight Toes' Palermo. These Wiseguys approached me and even bought me a cup of Ice Coffee. Not the other guys just me. I took that as a sign of respect. I got along with them just fine. At one point I was told that I put my life in danger. I didn't think so. As a matter of fact, I assumed that I was being talked to about becoming an Honorary Made Man. Was I nervous? I started to be when I was escorted to the roof of the building adjacent to Paul Revere's house. I am so enamored with the lifestyle of the Mafia that as a kid I wanted only two things......(1) To learn to tap dance...(2) To be a Made Man. I had my name picked too. Don Vito 'The Tapper' Giovanni ! My deal would have been that I didn't harm you, you harmed yourself. I would Tap Dance to Broadway Show Tunes and not let you sleep and then......BoOoOoM!!!... You would off yourself! Brilliant I thought! Anyway I digress. I came away with new friends and a deeper appreciation for The Family. I have new friends...And I will use them if I have to! You Know Who You Are!!
