    Mick Jagger turns 73! Mick once said he didn’t want to get older than 30. We’re glad and I’m sure he’s glad that he is 73 today and will soon be a father again! That anti-establishment, rock generation from the 1960s – has matured and that generation is now the Baby Boomer generation. What do you remember about being rebellious – with clothes, hair or the music you liked – that your parents’ generation hated? And as the new establishment – how have the Baby Boomers made the country better? Or – worse?

  2. Scoot Show 210pm First Lady Michelle Obama's Speech

    Audio

    Tue, 26 Jul 2016

    Last night on the first night of the Democratic convention – did you get a sense of a united America? Not everyone watches the conventions – but you all hear about and read about what was said. The Democrats are still somewhat divided within their ranks – but do you get a sense there was a message of uniting America? AND: Even if you don’t like President Obama – Michelle Obama gave a stirring speech last night to the convention and the nation. One part of the speech stood out. The First Lady talked about waking up every morning in a house that was built by slaves and she thinks about how her daughters – young black females – play in the White House yard. She said this in a way that made it seem as if she was recognizing that the past is over and we should look at and focus on the opportunities available today. How are you reacting to that part of the Michelle Obama’s speech?

  4. Scoot Show 310pm The DNC & Weekend Crime in the City

    A violent weekend in New Orleans and at a teen night club in Ft. Meyers, FL. Will it ever stop or is it just something we are noticing more now wih the 24 hour news cycle? AND: This weekend moviegoers throughout the New Orleans area saw advertisements inviting people to visit a local Catholic church. Are you open to the message? Why did you stop going to a Catholic church or any church? Do messages like this make you want to return or just reaffirm the reasons why you left? Bernie was right! The head of the DNC was working to make sure Hillary got the nomination and now Debbie Wasserman Schultz is resigning her position. The Clinton Campaign and many Democrats are blaming the controversy on the Russians, who they say, leaked the emails. But what about the content of the emails? That doesn’t change. Do you think this will have ANY effect on the Super Delegates who are for Clinton or any of the delegates she “won” in the primaries? Should the DNC on the basis of this email scandal allow the delegates to vote for who they please? ALSO: Do you think Hillary’s choice of Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, who was Governor of Virginia from 2006-2010....is a smart one? PLUS: Donald Trump gets a “bounce” in the polls and moves ahead of Hillary Clinton. Candidate’s usually get a ‘Bounce” after their parties convention. Do you think he can keep it or will Hillary get a “bounce” too, even in the wake of more email scandals for her?
