I don't like to be around people smoking -- I was in mcdonalds today picking up a couple of vote -- every now -- -- I'm not the -- -- but every known them I'd like those original mcdonalds cheeseburgers opted for a couple of -- And published in the next two ago it was a heavy smoker I had to move about six feet away. Because the fumes were burning my god so that's how I feel about smoking but. This Maryland hospital will stop hiring people who smoke in other words they won't even consider you for a job. Shouldn't you be able to deny a person the right to work because they smoke. And if if it's getting that band. Is that just about time too. Outlaw smoking completely. -- really think about it should work you do on your own time away from work. As long as it is not against the law be a reason. For not being -- you know where president. What about maybe having a glass of beer glass of line or Margarita at home and they're going to give people you're into the seat whether or not they smoked at all. So 10 your thoughts on this should you be able to deny a person the right to work. Just because they smoked. I say absolutely not. If you disagree with Leo wanna hear premiere and I want you to tell me why you disagree 2601 late 7866889. -- of now a new report. We started this last night but I don't even think I took one column until we start going. And they totally different direction so a justices which would call a -- you know output at the refrigerator overnight a new report says. That eating before bed. Does not make you gain fat. -- -- You do -- your correct. Because you've been told for so many years -- if you eat before you go to bed. That's the best way to add a new report says that eating before bed does not make you gain that. It's actually quite the opposite eating before bed will help you build muscle. -- great. Now if those -- here. At a it can't be a banana split it's got to be like. Ruled Turkey or rolled chicken or the mother helping stuff. But let's have some -- -- are you a late nights nectar and what is your favorite bedtime. -- and we have video light caution of the night. Foo Fighters -- slated to headline on the 2014 voodoo fest in new Orleans city park this fall. Who is the greatest rock artist that you've ever seen perform. And who did you -- and perform -- I tried to answer that usually what I do these questions let's say OK let me see if I can answer. And if I can answer I think it's a pretty good question of McCain mantra that I say have to come up with something else. I don't think I can limit mine to one. I think I'd have to limit my central ball three. So since I have to limit the inside. Can't. Think less than three did you three also with me. The Eagles -- -- I think that you just rate him a couple times. The Euro Rolling Stones. Absolutely incredible. And I'm I'm holding my third and offered up details. I'm debating a couple but the top of -- -- of course would be the stones. The Eagles and then. Were probably right now I'm leaning. Rod Stewart I think was most of the incredible 2601 late seventy. 866 -- nine point seven and the potential on global -- this from the time the call and and applied and who. Did you ms. Sheehan performed. That would have to be The Beatles on all The Beatles performed here in the world -- at at at city park and I wish -- been there. But I wasn't so. Let's let's go to Phil -- the blanks so like the gonna give me the outline personal combat and fill in the blank for -- A hospital in Maryland. Will stop hiring people who smoke. The hospital -- tobacco use. Including. Hospitals have employs more than 40000 people. And current employees who smoke will not lose their jobs. But the hospital said it will now test for nicotine. As part of its routine drug screening your interest. And if they find nicotine. In and your -- then you can't work there doesn't matter what your job is you know you could you could be. Idol you could be a secretary. You could be a nurse. You could be -- the guy who carries the waste out from Leo. ER and Leo war. No matter what it is then you can't work there anymore I honestly do not think that is right about because which you do. On your own time away from more the longer it is not against. Then why why in the world shouldn't even be considered. As far as. The way you'd you do your job again I'm a nonsmoker. I don't like smoking in restaurants -- like I don't like smoking anywhere. But I I think that they -- if we're gonna go that far. We amount of what has been banned smoking completely. And we have our our our light question of the night. When it comes to rock artist. Who is the greatest rock and roll artist you've ever seen perform and well to give as many as three and who did you miss performing to a six year old -- seventy. 866 -- and I know it's -- we have some one global shall give me a -- we're gonna go to Charles now. In a typical orient Charles. I'll I'll -- an -- right about now. But Charles -- first or did you give me your thoughts are you a smoker or non. -- OK I am a nonsmoker all -- But in all fairness it should a company be able to deny a person the right to work because they smoke at home in their own private time. -- On May be what's now acknowledges that it did it if you have a glass of wine and homeless and -- you. It is. All right the -- importantly you're in the back out. Here. Ought to -- it was a police radio. Thought maybe your -- Colin on the job may be honest they elements of the -- at our. Web site. In your opinion who was the greatest rock artists that you've ever seen perform and I'll let you apology go to three okay. Are well -- Are all those -- more. I'll probably I battled back. Now about the IL the at all. -- The the only Nine Inch Nails a little of the kind that I at a drive the boards on a mud down. The other half but a double where we're -- as well. I'll watch it. No big chill after urging them and it. Red hot chili pepper -- order show well. Now I do like the run that Chile Italy. What what artists that you miss performing somebody that you that you wish who has -- that you just never got around to see them perform. Okay I'm begun mail that went -- -- Yum I'm a little -- I'm I'm I'm a little more traditional however. I which honestly in The Beatles and I never did get a chance to see Led Zeppelin in concert of our. Hobble out of liked to have seen them. Charles thank you phoning in tonight. Are all right 260 lead somebody 866889. Point seven let's go to Jake and mentally how are you Jake. Good mister mister -- you don't. I'm doing -- mystery object. Look all right let's talk about this hospital that will stop hiring people who smoke is is that -- is that relief there. It's not right at. Indeed ornery. And they're in the first place in the whole country to ban. Outdoor smoking. At Orioles in. Sporting event. They're the first ones -- -- and smoking 500 beat than 1000 feet from. -- property. They like particular and so that is liberal TrailBlazer. Regarding smoking's. And I -- In the seventies and my mom -- no acute. And -- always our number -- always area. You know considerate and now she's still smokes on occasion that she refuses smoker I don't als and sure do smoker -- car. Our home it's ridiculous and it's just another infringement on rights and assists. I don't know I don't know how that -- and how that would hold up in the court of law are recruit from a surgeon working hospital. Being as well you know. As many surgeons slogan don't. Just cry pressure. A lot of nurses smoke a -- a lot of people smoke in the amicus I don't smoke. But I have friends that do and sometimes their art and normally they get outside and -- a very good yeah. It seem like pretty cool people so -- or out there with them. And the middles. No sir okay all right yeah. They've they go outside and smoke and that they're relegated to like. There is between. The garbage down. In other -- back in it since -- They have to make it illegal at this point recruits in a -- Maryland goes shortly after a liberal states. About their rules all of them pretty soon. Trickle down place like like -- I think you and I are off of the same nature here. I'm I'm an Abbott nonsmoker OK I'd I'd do not like being around smokers but I think what's happening to smokers that the that -- all their rights but just seemed to be. Thus slowly being trampled the way and I've never been able to understand in this country where. If -- smoker. They charge you more for insurance they put on the cigarette pack the stuff is going to kill you and it does and they do everything they can the to penalize smokers but yet it's legal you -- make it illegal. Well that's how I feel and then also you know a sorry. Little into our lives next door up to. An older -- in -- five Q so. Well I'm on the doing it and it rarely -- work of search and should try to catch it early in the morning. Run out of your stroke. So a doctor Jerry did you give me some cigarettes and you know this would be I would you know struggle that is all day. And I get our -- -- now. I don't care enough cash to buyer packer to a cigarette prepare so expensive -- impacts so much. -- ridiculous. Sparked a -- You know the best performers I don't know I don't know not a 100% circuit -- our interior. Producers. Are -- right there and you know I got two performers I saw.

These -- California conducted appealed to the you know rock -- country and if you can't go too far in one direction them or it's a case there's general Eric. It's all curled at the pilot. Did you see the Eagles will they were in concert last time at the arraignment. I did it and I'm not mentioned -- it was enemy on us.

I just yet half down a blue bell went out of -- -- -- there are no -- and dirty in a bowl because you have to either -- to are put at the dishwasher and then eventually put it back up so. Bypass the bowl if bucket bypassed this bill that would do that too but and though at the where where -- here. Is that you have things like. -- cottage cheese. Trachtenberg how how does that sound nice nice little common. That is not -- underdog. -- got to go to the -- or ice cream together. Yet -- not obligated port. My favorite -- lately is.

They had been growing call for your love. Right. For your over understandably -- only. Who retreated. Into our are both so open or if at all opera about that in our favor. Concert all that was support ground. And they've played with a cheek and strong. In between. The atomic rooster crux of the that was so warm -- favored but. She's really strong and atomic rooster and -- -- to -- -- -- -- -- -- -- sounds like you play something to -- ball. Today. A lot of people were into our. Ports support program. Lot of national group and every bit. -- And populated. And -- Richard most recent -- great it would Jimmy bought. Him out balloons and Stevie ray on -- Okay. That. They played played by themselves or what. I know it is to be it would ban caught a bad coach under bird. No no no the fabulous for the -- their wrestlers. -- on the -- on the scene and in the ring aren't tight. No live particularly at a top here -- it. Not. Oh I don't know all the Fabulous Thunderbirds there aren't they a couple of wrestlers. No well it could be but there's also banned because the background on from off the deck. I think I think you put me on there I think the Fabulous Thunderbirds are wrestling group anyway. But I appreciate your call and report like before you go on the halfway serious side do you think you should be able to. Discriminate against us someone you think you should be able tell someone. I don't know what you do for a living but you think should be able tells someone. I'm not gonna hire you. If you -- a smoker. Well yeah it is if it was a hospital related I would say yes stupid anybody out though. One and a little jingle you you know it matters. It's recruitment. You leave -- Puerto. Cigarette pack it. And for people who smoke no ordinary comment that. No I mean people who smoked at home so you're you're you're telling me if you don't smoke of the hospital. That -- that you should still be discriminated against. What. A little. -- -- hypocrite. Didn't smoke in and working on law and donated a great note. They know the cock record and readers -- anybody. Yeah he will with a Fabulous Thunderbirds are they smokers to. They're probably where ultra right the I still think you put in Milan go to Google the fabulous that absolutely are rendered her Fabulous Thunderbirds all right -- And taxes a great etiquette -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If someone is listening either technical lead is that really a group called the fabulous on the boards or is this I just -- Or. Artery. -- I thank you -- to -- to the other bobbled the -- Bob divert the Fabulous Thunderbirds. No sir. -- want a -- group I don't know. -- They might well be. Oh wait here we go here we go to a text message but that's what a -- -- my audience Fabulous Thunderbirds as the band three birds. Where the rest of the free birds was a song right. I don't know it wasn't free bird by let -- dinner. Alright let's talk about this hospital. That's passing a policy that says. We will not hire smokers is that right. I agree we realize caller. Hospital in the business of saving lives and if you think about it 1000. People. That's a lot of ignorance. Or between a smoker and non smoker. But then it. Why limited to just a hospital than anyone could do that. OK then anybody should be able to her bed and they'll have their workforce. Reduced but sank about. It is going to be difficult to enforce for one. I told they're gonna make them take urine test and they have a screen of from the detain. Yeah I understand that and it's still going to be difficult. Just like it is -- NFL. Think about that time it all these people lose people that smoke and they have the -- and so -- illnesses. You know I'm sitting here and a cold beverage and smoking a cigarette myself. All right you're supposed supposedly passed the law. That you can have a cold beverage -- the passed the law. Oh -- oh -- remember they drive. -- it didn't work very well. But couldn't they do the same thing -- they say. Alcohol kills alcohol causes a certain disease alcohol causes. Liver problems and things like that was and I'm a total nonsmoker but I think it is terribly unfair I don't know how that would stand open court where you tell someone. Even if you smoke on your own time and you don't smoke around the hospital and you -- you smoke only at home. That we will not even consider you for a job I'm I'm just against I I think. If they like that the the expression that they like to use today and that's a slippery slope. Well you know I -- slippery slope. That that this is the. That the corporate decision. And I think it -- step ahead of the government and I think it is the right way to go. All right well we disagree but that's okay who -- the greatest rock artists you've ever seen perform. And who did you miss the -- In the 1957. I had the opportunity to watch. Still lists present the well being rolled into San Angelo Texas with his big Cadillac you. He put on one show Friday night we've got to go to were.
