The Big JD's Good Morning Show
Friday, December 15th, 2017
Good morning and happy Friday to you! It's a busy weekend ahead but before we talk weekend, I just wanted to say a big congrats to the Olds Fire Department for an amazing fundraiser put on yesterday. We had the chance to hang out with them as they raised money for the Olds Christmas Angels, the Mountain View Food Bank and Chinook Arch Victim Services with their Fireman's Bucket Challenge. They absolutely blew away their original goal of $2500, raising $9,224! They also raised 2,250 lbs of food for the Mountain View Food Bank! Great job by everyone involved and way to go, Olds! As for this weekend, it's all about hockey on 96.5 CKfm. The Grizzlys play their final two home games before Christmas and it starts tonight with the Lloydminster Bobcats in town. Tomorrow night, the Grizz play host to the Sherwood Park Crusaders. The black and gold are looking to lock up a pair of wins and go into the break on a good note. Tune in both nights for the action, starting with the pre-game show at 6:55 pm. As for this day in country music, it was on this day in 1990 that George Straight topped with charts with "I've Come To Expect It From You". Here's a bit of King George for your Friday! Have a great weekend!

Good morning! It's a big day in Olds with the Fireman's Bucket Challenge taking place. We'll be hanging out throughout the day with members of the Olds Fire Department as they try and raise money and food donations for the Mountain View Food Bank, the Olds Christmas Angels and Victim Services! They'll be placing one of their members in the bucket and hoisting him high in the air. The thing is, he can't come down till we reach our fundraising goals of $2500 or 2000 lbs of food. Head on out and make your donation today. Today is also the day Billy Swan scored his only #1 hit on the country charts. Here's his chart-topper form 1974 for you.

Good morning! What a win by the Grizzlys last night! On the road, in Camrose, the Grizz pulled off quite the comeback. Jeremy Klessens, who already had two goals in the game, completes the hat-trick to tie the game at 5-5 with 1:29 to play. Then, with just 10 seconds left in overtime, Klessens nets the OT winner. His four-goal night gives him 14 on the season and gives Olds a big win coming back home. They'll close out their pre-Christmas schedule with a pair of home games on Friday and Saturday. Today is a big day for country music with both Taylor Swift and John Anderson celebrating birthdays. Here's the birthday boy with one of his biggest hits to help you celebrate.

Good morning! It's GAMEDAY for the Olds Grizzlys as the black & gold make the trip to Camrose tonight. They'll be back at home this weekend though with a pair of games against Northern opponents. They'll host Lloydminster on Friday before Sherwood Park drops by on Saturday. Here's hoping they go into Christmas with a couple of wins! It's Tuesday which means another Top 5 Tuesday video. Today, we take a look at Christmas songs, but not the ones you're thinking of. There's plenty of carols that have been around for years and are standards this time of year. I'm talking about my top five non-traditional Christmas songs. Check it out!

Good morning! Just 14 days left till Christmas and we are ready! It doesn't exactly feel like Christmas though with all the mild temperatures we've been experiencing. It was a rough weekend for our local hockey teams with the Olds Grizzlys falling 8-2 in Brooks on Saturday and the Colts going 0-2 over the weekend. They dropped a 6-3 decision to Ponoka on Saturday before a 10-1 loss at the hands of Red Deer yesterday. To get you feelin' better, it's Brenda Lee's birthday today. The hall-of-fame talent was born on this day in 1944 and at the tender of age of 13, recorded this Christmas classic.

Good morning! Happy Friday to you as another weekend is upon us. This one features Crazy Carstairs Christmas events getting underway today and continuing into tomorrow. The Mountainview Colts also have a busy weekend. They'll play host to Ponoka in Didsbury tomorrow but before the game, come out early for the Colts alumni game. See some of your favourite players of the past put on the gear one more time for a fun match-up before this year's crop of talent takes the ice. Today marks a sad day in country music. It was on this day in 1982 that Marty Robbins passed away. The legendary singer and song-writer was one of the true icons of country music. Here's his signature tune for your Friday.

Good morning! Well...it was a tough one for the Grizzlys last night. The Black & Gold fell 8-1 to the Brooks Bandits but they'll have a shot at redemption this weekend when they make the trip to Brooks for the back half of that home-and-home. Meanwhile, our hockey coverage continues tonight when we hit the road to Three Hills for Heritage Junior Hockey League action. The Mountainview Colts will look for another win over the rival Thrashers, starting with puck drop at 8:00 pm. You can tune in for the pre-game show at 7:55 pm. Listen to our weekly chat with Head Coach Mike Galye to get you in the mood for tonight's game.

Good morning and welcome to an Olds Grizzlys GAMEDAY!!! The Grizz are back on home ice tonight as they welcome the Brooks Bandits. The last time Brooks was here, the Grizzlys stunned the defending champs with a 3-1 win. Can they do it again? Tune in tonight for all the action, starting with the pre-game show at 6:55 pm. We had some fun on today's Top 5 Tuesday, taking a look at my favourite Christmas movies. This one is sure to cause some debate so enjoy and make sure to watch a couple of these to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Good morning! Welcome back to your work week and what should be a pretty nice week weather-wise as well. It's also a return to the airwaves for both local hockey teams this week. We'll have the broadcast tomorrow night of the Grizzlys facing off with Brooks. Then, on Wednesday, we'll have all the action from Three Hills when the Colts hit the road to battle the Thrashers. Make sure you're tuned in for some great hockey. Meanwhile, today marks one of the greatest days in music history. On this day in 1956, Carl Perkins was laying down some new tracks at the Sun Studios. Jerry Lee Lewis was helping on piano. While the two were working, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash stopped in and an impromptu jam session began. Sam Phillips was smart enough to hit the record button and we got "The Million Dollar Quartet". Check out the recording.
