For better or worse, The Johnny Dare Morning Show has been waking up Kansas City since 1993. You would think we could find a better show by now! You never know what might happen when Johnny, Jake, Gregg, T-Bone, and Nycki fire-up weekdays from 6 till 10am. Enjoy some of their best bits, parody songs…
Since 1994, Mitch Holthus has been the voice of the Kansas City Chiefs, the phrase “TOUCHDOOOOOOOWN KAAAAANSAS CITY!” echoing across the city with every game we play!And now that the Chiefs have their eyes on the playoffs, and hopefully the Super Bowl, Mitch stopped by the show to talk about tomorrow's big playoff game against Jacksonville at Arrowhead, how he was accosted by Aussie journalists at the Super Bowl…and help warm up Johnny's seat on the bandwagon!!
Comedian and Friend of the Show Josh is having a hell of a last few weeks...not only his he heading out on the road, he's gearing up to compete on America's Got Talent All Stars...but then there's the fact that his cabin in Colorado recently burned to the ground...so I think it's safe to say that our friend has had a lot on his plate.But, lucky for us, he had a little time to give us a call this morning to discuss everything from the cabin fire, AGT, weed and what might be the best idea for a Hallmark movie ever!!
'Round here we don't believe in that "new year, new me" bullshit...we here at JDMS HQ are committed to continue our quest to provide you, the faithful listeners, the level of high quality rubber lovin' that you have come to expect from a bunch of reprobates like us!!CHANGE IS BAD! MASTURBATION IS GOOD!!It's the Adult Toy Price Is Right, brought to you by Moonlight Adult Boutique!!
While we are a rock & roll station, we here on the morning show are fans of all kinds of music...and we know a legend when we have the chance to talk to one. Such is the case with country legend Wynonna Judd.Over 30 million albums sold as a solo artist...but alongside her mother, the late Naomi Judd, she was part of one of the biggest country duos of all time, The Judds...releasing mulitple gold and platinum albums and 14 number one hits. The pair were set to embark on a farewell tour before Naomi's untimely passing in April of '22...but Wynonna has decided to carry on the tour, and pay tribute to the music she created with her mother....and she called the show this morning to tell us all about it.
We here on the Morning Show have been friends with Whitfield Crane and the boys in Ugly Kid Joe for over three decades now...and, trust me, we've seen and done things in those three decades.And now, the band has a new album out, Rad Wings Of Destiny...and this morning we talked to Whit about the bands first US Tour in TWENTY SEVEN YEARS and it's bringing the band to KC May 15th at The Truman!!
The Chiefs are continuing their march to the Super Bowl this Saturday afternoon against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional playoff...and when it comes to all matters football, we rely on the wisdom of former Chiefs QB, now CBS analyst, Trent Green to break it all down for us!!And, as always, Trent gave us all of the insight we needed!!
Local KC business entrepreneur Behman Zakeri grew up in the 80s obsessed with the 1985 film classic, The Goonies...so much so that recently, he plunked down almost $1.7 million to buy the Astoria Oregon house featured in the film!! We caught up with Behman this morning to find out all about his plans to restore this iconic house to the way it was in '85, and his plans for it's future!!
There is one thing you can always count on when you talk to Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, you're gonna get opinions....and Dee has a lot of 'em. And we love him for that. And with the band looking forward to their induction into the Heavy Metal Hall of Fame, we talked to Dee this morning about that, and a myriad of other subjects...and as always, it was a hell of a ride!!
When you decide to break into someone's house, you are always going to take the chance of it not ending quite not you wanted....ESPECIALLY when the house you happen to break into belongs to pro-wrestling legend Hacksaw Jim Duggan...and HE happens to be holding a loaded .44 Magnum!!!My guess is that pants shitting ensued.We got Hacksaw on the phone this morning to find out all about it!!
We first met comedian Carlos Mencia right as his career was set to take off...then we watched as he landed his own Comedy Central show, starred in his own award winning comedy specials, and appeared in movies like "The Heartbreak Kid"!!And since he's rolling back in to KC in a few weeks to perform 3 nights at The Comedy Club of Kansas City, we knew it was time to catch up!!And we quickly found that he's still primed and ready to offend everyone who needs offending!!
KC native and Friend of the Show, Rudy Reyes rose from a troubled childhood that landed him and his brothers in the Omaha Home for Boys to, in 1998, In 1998, joining the USMC and was ultimately serving in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of the 1st Battalion Recon...eventually being part of the book and HBO mini-series, "Generation Kill"...and that is just scratching the surface of his story! And now he's part of the new FOX reality series, "Special Forces: World Toughest Test"...and he gave us a call this morning to tell us all about that and the myriad of other things he has going on!!
We failed to give away our big year end Big Ticket Items for the Adult Toy Price Is Right before we left for Christmas vacation...so now that were back? We're back in a big way!!...that was until FNG managed to be, well, FNG. IT'S THE ADULT TOY PRICE IS RIGHT!!Brought to you by Moonlight Adult Boutique!!
Dear Johnny,My name is Melanie and I am writing because we are desperate for help this holiday.The company my husband, Scott, was working for went bankrupt in November and they had to let all of their employees go. We didn't have any warning this was going to happen and we have 3 children. A son age 13, a daughter age 11, and a son age 6. It's a rough time of the year and we are really struggling to pay bills. My husband is a computer tech and has been doing all the freelance work he can to keep us caught up. Our furnace went out so we have shut our gas off. We live in a mobile home community and it has been really cold in the house and with winter here it's only going to get colder. We are relying on jackets, blankets and space heaters to keep us warm which is making our electric bill very expensive and I'm worried it will end up shut off as well. I just feel like crying and I don't know what to do. We are truly at a loss and could sincerely some help. My husband starts a new job at the first of the year and I just want to give my kids a warm home for Christmas. Thank you for time and consideration. Happy Holidays.Melanie Who Helped: Jerry, Shannon, Gilligan, Jeff, Consentino's plus Brian Moore w/ Hometown Heroes Heating & Cooling and Royal Supply. How You Helped: Installing a brand new furnace, took care of elec. & gas bills, lot rent, Christmas for the kids and groceries!
There is no one on WWE Raw with more heat right now than KC native Baron Corbin! The self-proclaimed "Modern Day Wrestling God" just made the jump from Smackdown to RAW, has aligned himself with wrestling legend JBL and is hell bent on burning down every town he strides into!!But this morning, while talking to us on the phone, he did battle with his most formidable opponent yet...his 3 1/2 year old daughter! And honestly...I think she can take him.
Dear Johnny,My name is James and I have a full time job in waste management. I've been a driver for 17 yrs. My wife works part time and our kids are all grown. On Sunday December 11th I didn't feel good and my chest felt really heavy. My wife called 911 and an ambulance arrived. It turns out I was having a major heart attack, and I'd just turned 50 years old. It was so unexpected and it will put me out of a job for a few months until I getreleased by the doctors. My wife and I are worried because we always struggle to getends met but we always find a way. Now with being out of work I'm worried about themortgage and keeping up on other bills. I have to say I'm so scared this was something I never planned for. I want to get back to work because I just don't want to feel like I'm letting anyone down. Thank you for reading my letter and I hope you have a good holiday.James Who Helped: Glen, Scotty, Ronni, River, Jacob, Seth & Pipefitters Local 533 How You Helped: Paid 2 months mortgage, gas & Electric bills
As the year winds down, it was great this morning to catch up with our good friend, Sevendust frontman Lajon Witherspoon to see what's up in his world and wish him a happy holiday...and it's also great to find out that, despite being a Grammy nominated, platinum selling rock star...he has to deal with all of the same Christmas crap the rest of us do!!!
Dear Johnny,My name is Sherry and I'm writing to you because my family really needs your help.My son Josh and his wife Kayla lost everything they own in a house fire last night (12-16-22) in Cameron Missouri. Luckily no one was in the house at the time, buttragically they did lose two of their beloved pet dogs and literally everything theyown. They are a family of 7, with 5 children ranging from ages 2-6 years old.Firefighters believe the fire started from a faulty outlet in the bedroom. They are now having to start over and right before Christmas as well. Times are already hard as it is and now they really will be facing some difficulties to overcome this as a young family who puts every penny they earn into providing for their kids. Josh works so hard to support their family and for all those things they now have lost, they are beyond devastated by this. If there's anything you could do to help them get through this rough patch so close to the holidays, I would appreciate it beyond words. Even the bare necessities likeclothes, shoes, household items, etc. Anything you could do would be much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.Sherry Wolfgang
Comedian Tom Papa is a rarity among stand ups in that you always walk away from watching him thinking as though you learned a little something along the way. From his last special, and the accompanying book, "You're Doing Great!", to his latest Netflix special, "What A Day!", he always has an honest and hilarious look at the world around him. And we got the chance to catch up with Tom this morning to find out all about it!
Dear Johnny,My name is Aaron and I am writing in hopes to get help for my mother, Mary. My mom is retired, but she has been a caretaker for the last 14 years helping with my grandpa until he passed in 2009, then my grandma who passed in 2016 and now my uncle who suffers from Parkinsons. He is in and out of the hospital and rehab facilities a lot.My mother has health issues of her own (stage 4 of kidney failure) but continues to help everybody all she can. My mom came and stayed with me from the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving to Monday. The plumbing in her house has been backing up and causing problems. Yesterday she had a plumber come out and take a look, and they found out her main sewer line is broken 28 feet from the house. They quoted her $4000.00 to fix itand on a fixed income, she just doesn't have it. She doesn't have that kind of money and has had to shut the water off to her house and is coming back to stay with us. She has been so strong and is always there for family. I just wish I could be there to help her. It just seems it is taking a toll on her physically and emotionally. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. Hope you guys have a happy holiday.Aaron Who Helped: Amish Adam, Adrian, Chris, Q & The Creepy Horseman Community, Kevin & Muddy River Tactical, Consentino'sHow You Helped: Raised money to pay for sewer repair, grocery gift card
Dear Johnny,My name is Jamie and I'm writing because on November 2nd, I lost my husband, my best friend and the father of my kids unexpectedly at the age of 40. That day I was headed home from work and my 2 teenagers were trying to resuscitate their father and wait for emergency services. He was taken to the hospital and placed in ICU, but neverregained consciousness. My husband was selfless and so great to our family. He always had time and if youneeded something, you could count on him. He was the life of any room and lovedconcerts. He had a lot of knowledge and love for all music...and man could he dance.As of right now, we are still waiting for a death certificate. Doctors are trying todetermine if it could have been a brain aneurism or a blood clot. We both work, but he was our bread winner. This year I have had to tell our kids I can't do Christmas because I'm trying to keep a roof over our heads. I work everyday and it just isn't the same without that 2nd income. Of course my kids understand, but I just don't want to fall behind and have so much worry. If nothing else, thank you taking the time to read this. In loving memory, love you Marc!Jamie Who Helped: Jason, Jeff, Bobby, Jennifer, Erin, Ashley, Joel, Bill Ludwig III & WFL3 Drums
AC/DC is one of the most iconic rock & roll bands of all time. Brian Johnson is one of the most recognizable voices in rock history. If you do not like AC/DC, you are likely an asshole. These...are facts.And today, we had the distinct pleasure of spending a few minutes talking to Brian about his new book, "The Lives Of Brian"...and as is with every conversation we've ever had with him...he is one of the most humble, kind and friendly rock legends you could ever hope to meet. We only got to spend a few minutes chatting this morning, and that didn't EVEN scratch the surface of his story...so hopefully soon we'll get him back in to get deeper into the story...but for now, enjoy 10 minutes with a true icon.
Dear Johnny,Thank you for taking the time to read this email.We have struggled these last few months and my family could really use your help. My husband was involved in a serious car crash and was severally injured inSeptember. He broke 7 ribs and lacerated several internal organs. We were so worried while he spent a few days in the ICU. And then he was off work to recover for 6 weeks after. We both have jobs, but he rushed himself back to work because he knew the bills were adding up. The kids and I are just happy that he made it through and is still here with us.We are keeping up as best we can, but we have an outstanding electrical bill that I know is weighing heavily on him. I just want to take a little bit of that load off if I can. Thank you very much for reading,God bless and merry Christmas.
We've had the chance to talk to a whole lot of rock stars over the years...and there are few that can truly be considered rock royalty like legendary bassist Rudy Sarzo. A Cuban immigrant, he chased his dream of playing music to spend time in some of the most iconic and influential acts in heavy metal. Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dio...and that's just scratching the surface. He rejoined Quiet Riot in 2021, at the behest of late drummer Frankie Banali, to carry on the band's legacy....and now they've unearthed an unreleased recording. "I Can't Hold On", featuring both Frankie and late frontman Kevin DuBrow....and we talked to him all about it this morning!
Dear Johnny,My name is Kimberly. My family and I could really use some help this holiday. Myhusband is 33 and has been type 1 diabetic for most of his life (he was diagnosed at 6months old). In October, he had a heart attack and has been off work a little more than 2 months while recovering. We are doing our best to survive on my income alone. He just started back to work last week and it worries me because his job is heavy labor, but the bills are piling up and he wanted to get back to work. Right now we are struggling to keep our lights on, pay rent, put food on the table for our 3 kids and the insulin and other medication needed for my husband. We usually have no issues, but have just fallen behind and I worry about Christmas for the kids. They see us struggling and it hurts me to see the way this has affected them. Thank you for reading my letter and thank you for everything you do. We appreciate it. Happy holidays.

Dear Johnny,My name is Jessie, I'm a 29 year old single mother of 3 amazing children. In 2021, I had been experiencing some headaches and they would come on strong and all of a sudden. After visiting the doctor in February, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was small and not growing so we had MRI's every 6 months. In August of 2021 it grew just a little bit, but by February of 2022 it almost tripled in size.I had several tests done and at the end of March, I saw my neurosurgeon and he told me in 5 days, he'd be performing a craniotomy to resect all of the tumor that he could get, but due to some complications he was only able to get a biopsy. I came home 3 days after my surgery with 72 staples in my head and severe swelling. I made it through and my kids stepped up and helped more than a parent could dream of. At the end of April I got information that the biopsy was inconclusive and that I need to undergo a second craniotomy, which happened on May 20th of 2022. This time I had 42 staples and lost all feeling in my left leg (I can still walk, but sometimes have numbness). I had to re-learn how to walk on my left leg. In late June/early July, we were told that it is cancer. They weren't able to remove the tumor due to its location and it could cripple my left side. I started radiation and chemo and have continued on my treatments. Then I was laid off from my job, but thankfully was able to find another job and started the following Monday morning. In between all of my medical issues, my father passed away from Alzheimer's. And, I'm doing my best to keep up, but we are falling behind. My kids have been so good through all of this and I'm just worried about Christmas. My next check is going to have to try and cover bills and I just want them to have a good holiday. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my letter. Happy Holidays.Jessie Who Helped: Pinball Jeff, Wendy, David, Consentino's How You Helped: Caught up on electric bill, car payment and phone bill, Christmas for the kids, groceries
Holy shit...some of the best damn mornings we've ever had is when Josh Wolf comes to town to perform at the Improv...but he always stops by the studio and we always know it's going to be a hilarious morning....and today was no exception!Pop a cold one, sit back and enjoy!!!
We've been fans of the band Steel Panther for damn near 15 years now. And not only because their songs are hilarious...but because behind the image and salacious lyrics, they are a phenomenal group of performers!Now they've released a new single that pays tribute to, what they feel, is the greatest year in music..."1987", And now, as the band gears up for the release of their full length album in Feb '23, followed by a full slate US and European dates...we thought it was time to catch up with our old...and I do mean old...friend, Steel Panther guitarist Satchel, to see what's up in his world.
Dear Johnny,I wanted to write to you about my family. My son, Nolan, is a 5 year old little boy who can light up any room. He has a twin sister and a 14 year old sister as well.Nolan was born with Down syndrome and has been overcoming hurdles since birth. He had open heart surgery at 6 months old, and 2 years ago we found out he will need another at some point. In August, Nolan started limping. He would get better, then limp a few days. Multiple X-rays, doctor visits, and labs were done with no answers. We made the trip to Children's Mercy on September 6th of this year, and received the devastating news no parent wants. Nolan was diagnosed with ALL, or Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.He has had many ups and downs in his short life so far. I have never known a little boy to go through so much and still do it with a smile on his face most days.He loves the simple things in life, going on wagon rides, playing with cars, and being at home with his family are just a few of his favorite things. The reason I am writing is because we have put so many miles on our cars. Ourprimary van which has 160,000 + miles is now leaking oil and I can't figure out how to fix it, but I was able to put 4 new tires on it. We are having to drive the 1 hour trip to Children's Mercy now every 10 days, but in January we will have another 30 day in hospital stay which means that me and my wife will switch on the weekends staying with him while he is in the hospital. After that 30 day stay we will have to start going weekly for visits, then back to treatments every 10 days. This takes a toll on the vehicle. With my wife having to take my son to appointments and therapy, and now chemo, she can't work. So I am working two jobs just to try and make ends meet with him being in and out of the hospital since September. We are caught up on most of the bills, but I'm worried about our mortgage payment in January. It's difficult to write this letter and ask for help, but I just wanted you to know Nolan's story and how strong this little boy is. Thank you for your consideration,Justin Anderson Who Helped: Nick, Tammy, Glen, Benjamin, Ryan, Trevor & Christian Brothers Automotive How You Helped: Paid January mortgage, fixing the van and a rental car.

Dear Johnny,I am a single mom of 3 and have had the roughest year ever. Last August (2021) Iwas diagnosed with breast cancer (I had a large mass in my right breast, stage 2).Starting in September I began chemo. I had treatment until February this year and in March I was told I was in remission. I worked all through chemo in order to pay the bills and provide for my kids. I had my first surgery in March which was a double mastectomy and had to take 6 weeks off from work. I also had to have a procedure to put in expanders to prepare for breast reconstruction. In September of this year, I had to have my ovaries removed because my cancer is estrogen fueled. I missed 3 weeks of work. I'm 38 years old. I have one more surgery that I have to have done but I have been putting it off to January because I can't afford to take more time off right now and my oldest son is leaving in a few weeks for his first deployment. Through it all I have to smile and keep pushing because we are still very blessed no matter the obstacles we've had to overcome. I am working so hard to keep up with doctors' appointments, bills, work and kids. Just normal life things. And it will be my son's last Christmas home for a few years. I would be so grateful if you could help us. I just want to have a goodChristmas and not fall behind. Thank you for reading my email and thanks for all you do.Brandy Who Helped: Carrie, Glen, Jason, Consentino's How You Helped: 2 months rent, Christmas for the kids, groceries
Dear Johnny, My name is Adam and my wife is Tonya, and I'm writing because this year has been tough for us. We have a 1 year old daughter that we just brought home from Children's Mercy Hospital last week. We live in Maryville and we have made lots of trips to Children's Mercy this year. My daughter's name is Hexley and she was diagnosed with Hypo-plastic-Left Heart Syndrome at 21 weeks in utero. We have been in and out of the hospital for the past year. She had surgery last November at just 8 days old and a second surgery in May of this year. I have missed quite a bit of work and with everything that has gone on money has been tight. We have fallen behind on bills and are just trying to catch up. Our little girl has a long road ahead of her and we want her to have a special Christmas since this will be her first Christmas home and with family.Thank you for taking the time to read our letter. I appreciate it. Adam Peak Who Helped: Sabrina, Joel, Steve, Dawn, David How You Helped: 2 months rent, caught up on car payment and electric bills
Our old friend, Comedian/Podcaster Dan Cummins, is one of our favorite entertainers, not only because his particular brand of comedy is truthful, weird and prone to make more than a few folks cry in the overpriced cocktails...but also because his hit podcast, Timesuck, is one of the in-depth, informative freak shows on the internet!! We're stoked he's coming back to KC on Jan 27th...but we're even more excited about his new episode of Timesuck that explores the world of one of the most mysterious organizations right here in KC, The International House of Prayer!!We caught up with Dan this morning to find out more!!

Dear Johnny,My name is Mandy and I need some help this year. I'm not writing for myself, but my husband Tommy. We've been together for 8 years and actually got married in June. Tommy's had it rough these last few years. He was diagnosed in 2018 with a braintumor about the size of a grapefruit. He beat the odds and was out of the hospital from having it removed in 48 hours. He was also back to work within a month, and we thought we had this beat. In May, we were told he had 2 new tumors and we started radiation and chemo (Glioma brain tumors on left side of the brain). Soon after radiationhe had a stroke and a grand mal seizure. He works as a large machine mechanic in a factory and has continued to work as much as he can during treatment. He's continuing treatment and continuing to try and work. He is very proud and we aren't sure how much time he has. We feel like we've just been buying time. He has battled multiple brain tumors and still keeps going. He is just a fighter. The doctors say his health will continue deteriorating and even though they don't like to give a prognosis, they figure somewhere between 7 and 15 months. The reason I'm writing is because he will soon have to use a wheelchair and the basement area that is accessible isn't framed in or finished off for a wheelchair shower or proper flooring. I was able to install a sink and a toilet, but want it to be a comfortable area for him to live an fight this. I've been in contact with a contractor near us in St. Joe and have gotten a bid of $2000 to finish out the area, install the shower, frame it in, run the plumbing, do traction flooring and make everything wheelchair accessible. He has such a huge heart and has given all his life. I don't have the extra funds, but I would really like to do this for him. Thank you forreading my letter and happy holidays to all of you. – Mandy Who Helped: Robbie, Gene, George, Consentino's How You Helped: Raised money to help finish out the basement to make it wheelchair accessible, groceries
Dear Johnny,Hello, my name is AJ and I desperately need assistance.It all started in September 2021, I had to call 911 for my husband who had gotten covid.He had gotten really sick with covid and pneumonia and was on a ventilator for a month and a half. He was at KU for 67 days, then a hospital to have his tracheotomy taken out, and then more of a hospital stay for physical and occupational therapy. It was so hard and painful for him to go through therapy and learn to walk again. He was away from home for a total of 150 days and didn't return home until February 2022. I needed to say the hardest thing to our children, in our lives. That their dad may not make it. You just can't believe it when the medical staff asks you if his heart stops do you want to resuscitate. He continued his therapy every Wednesday and went back to work part-time. I work part-time as well at a daycare. I work all the hours I can, but sometimes it's difficult because I was diagnosed with MS in 2006. I knew it is going to be a really hard Christmas this year with all the setbacks. But,during Thanksgiving this year all 4 of us had the flu. Of course it is harder on myhusband than the 3 of us. I had to take him to urgent care this last Sunday, because he was coughing and having problems breathing. He is still on oxygen after the urgent care, but he is getting better.Needless to say, we've gotten behind on bills (gas, water electric, trash). We have a daughter 18 and son 13. They understand the situation and are helping all they can. I was able to make our mortgage payment, but it just doesn't leave any extra to get caught up. My husband is ready to go back to work and will be cleared to go back full-time at the first of the year. It was a tough Christmas last year in the hospital. I just want to be able to make itthrough the holidays this year. Thank you for taking the time to read our letter.AJ Who Helped: Mike, Shane, Candy, Kevin & Muddy River Tactical, Brandon & MC Electrical Contractors, Consentino's How You Helped: Catch up on bills (gas, water, water, trash), 1 month mortgage, Christmas for the kids and husband, groceries.
We love comedian Brad Williams, not only because he's damn hilarious, but because…for the longest time…he was a man who has a hot Asian wife who likes to have threesomes…So we basically had to live vicariously through his exploits!! And Kansas City loves our boy Brad too, proven by the fact that all of his shows this weekend have sold out, with another show added this Sunday! Between sell out shows, not to mention his appearance in the new Reno 911 Christmas special on Comedy Central, things are blowing up for they guy!We caught up with him this morning to talk BBQ, sex after kids, pinball, and so much more!!!
Dear Johnny, I don't even know where to start. My family really needs help. My husband Richard and I both work full time jobs, we have 4 children. This summer we had to move out of our home we had lived in for over 8 years. The landlord had sold the property and we needed to find a new place to live. Not long after moving, Richard was in a car accident. He was T-boned as someone ran a red light near Kansas Avenue and K32.His car was totaled. We are now down to one car and doing our best to keep our heads above water with Christmas on the way.We have fallen behind on a few bills, but most importantly I owe $200 to get my tags registered (they expired in September). As it is our mode of transportation, we are in a tight spot, some months we both worry if we are able to pay the bills and keep food on the table for our children. I have applied for food stamps but simply put we make $67 too much to qualify. I sometimes feel like I am failing my children, but I know...where there is a will there is a way. I would love to get our only car legal if anything else, as well as make sure our children have some sort of Christmas.We are grateful that you took time to read our letter. I promise to pay it forward once we are able to get back on our feet.Thank you for listening,Sincerely Abby Packer Who Helped: Jim.

My dad, Preston Brown (57), is an amazing person. A father of six children, he's been a hardworking man his entire life and has sacrificed so much to always take care of his family. He's the type who will always help out anyone who needs it and will never askfor anything in return. My family loves him so much and I don't know what we would do without him.But in September of this year he started to feel bad, had a hard time eating and anupset stomach. After being pushed by my mom, he went to the doctor to have some tests done. In early November, my father was diagnosed with Stage 4B esophageal cancer. Tests and biopsies reveal he also has several lymph nodes affected, spots onhis liver, and a malignant mass on his kidney. They have now scheduled tests for spots on his spine also. He will be undergoing an aggressive course of both radiation and chemotherapy to battle this cancer and our hope is that he will eventually be cancer-free. While he's battling cancer, he's unable to work. My mother, a cancer survivor herself, has been working two jobs and picking up as many extra shifts as she can to support the family, including my three little sisters who still live with them. My mom has been working herself insanely hard trying to keep them afloat, but with all of the tests and treatments he's undergoing, they're starting to fall behind.I don't want my mom to have to be so stressed about finances on top of everything else.I just want to help them not fall behind and my mom and family to be able to spend time with him while he battles this disease. They are spending so much money on gas to and from his appointments (he has several each week and all are 1 to 2 hours away from their home.)I appreciate you reading my letter.Brittany Brown Who Helped: Brandon & MC Electrical Contractors, Nathan, Ken, Curtis, Whitney, Tom, Charlie, Grant and Consentino's How You Helped: Gas Cards, paid gas bill, Christmas for the kids and groceries
In a world of professional boxing and mixed martial arts, there's a new combat sport that has been growing bigger over the last couple of years…and it's one of the most ridiculous ever (in the best way possible)…and that's SLAPFIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!Grown ass men and women, slapping the ever loving shit out of each other for sport. The man behind it is promoter JT Tilley…and he stopped by the show this morning to talk all about their next big event from the Grand Glaize Resort in Osage Beach, SLAPFIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP 21!!
Anyone who listens to the Morning Show knows our undying love for Henry Winkler.It's just the plain truth…we love him. He's an icon. He's one of the kindest people we know.And, as we all found out a little while back that he's a huge fan of Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes!And this past Sunday, Henry and Patrick FINALLY got to meet when the Chiefs played the Chargers in LA…and the whole city beamed with pride at the truly heartfelt meeting between the two.It was just plain amazing to watch.So we HAD to get Henry on the phone to find out all about it…and hearing him re-tell the story was just magical.
The legend and myth of the Bermuda Triangle has long been a source of wonder for many who believe in such things…ships, airplanes, people…vanishing without a trace.And now a new History Channel 6 part series looks for answers in “The Bermuda Triangle: Into Cursed Waters”…but in looking for these wrecks…the crew found something they didn't expect…and it could be one of thr most historical finds ever. We talked to diver Jimmy Gadomski all about it this morning!

Over the last few years, director Eli Roth has become one of our favorite people to have on the show. Not just because we're huge fans of the films he's directed, and of his work as "The Bear Jew" in "Inglorious Basterds"...but because when you talk to him, you realize he's just another nerd like us...albeit one with a really fucked up sense of humor!And now that he's back on Travel Channel executive producing the new series, "Urban Legend", we figured it was time to catch up!
Let's face it...we're children on this show. Things like rubber ball sacks still make us laugh uncontrollably. Which his why it's fortuitous that we have a friend like Billy of UK-based Billy's Ball Bags!! Hyper-realistic scrotums that make perfect gifts...and now, just in time for the holidays, Billy's made some special Christmas themed nuts to decorate yer tree and more!!! https://billysballbags.com/
The story of Dennis Rader, aka The BTK Killer, gripped Wichita KS and much of the Midwest with fear for two decades before he was eventually arrested and found guilty of the murder of 10 people. A seemingly normal family man, community leader, held a dark, evil secret…his need to bind, torture and kill. There are two great documentaries out now, A&E's “BTK: Confessions of a Serial Killer” and the season 2 debut of Netflix's “Catching Killers”…but this morning we talked to the man who finally slapped the cuffs on him, former KBI senior special agent, Ray Lundin…and he gave us even more insight into mind of one of the most terrifying criminal minds of all time…a man with no guilt, no remorse…and man who reveled in telling the police all of the details of his kills…and man Ray Lundin calls “An unfinished soul.”
In our lifetime there have been a lot of magicians and illusionists. From the hippie dippy magic of Doug Henning in the 70s, to the giant illusions of David Copperfield and the sarcastic take on it all from Penn & Teller…one man took it all to another level…a bigger, more rock and roll, gigantic level….and that's Criss Angel!!His Vegas show has been one of the most consistently HUGE draws on the strip since 2008! So much that he was named “Magician of the Century”!And now he's pulling back the curtain…slightly…with the new CW celebrity competition, Magic With The Stars!Each week, two celebrities go head to head, learning and then performing some of Criss Angel's biggest illusions, competing for the ultimate prize of The Golden Wand!We caught up with Criss this morning to find out more!
Working with a successful ensemble cast like Topher Grace did on "That 70s Show" can be a once in a lifetime thing...lightning in a bottle...but luckily for him, he's found that again with the cast of his hit ABC show, "Home Economics"...and he told us all about the family vibe and more this morning!
We know Jack McBrayer mostly from his more "adult" roles in such films as "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Talladega Nights", not to mention his work on "30 Rock"...but these days he's on a crusade to help raise a generation of kinder humans with his AppleTV children's show, "Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show"...bringing back the feel-good vibe of "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood"...and, listening to him talk about it this morning, we think he's on the right track!
I have but one word to describe today's edition of the ATPIR.....JOYCE. Wonder what I'm talking about...listen and learn!It's THE ADULT TOY PRICE IS RIGHT!Brought to you, as always, by Moonlight Adult Boutique!
