The Big JD's Good Morning Show
Tuesday, November 13th, 2018
Good morning! We are back at it today after the Remembrance Day weekend and we got right into it. Head Coach Joe Murphy of the Olds Grizzlys dropped by for the Coach's Show and filled us in on a busy weekend of Grizzlys action. The Black & Gold fell 6-1 on Friday in Spruce Grove before bouncing back to best the Bobcats 4-1 on Saturday. Your next chance to see the Grizz will be this Saturday when the Sherwood Park Crusaders come to town. We'll have coverage of that game, starting with the pre-game show at 6:55 pm. We also focused on man's best friend for our Top 5 Tuesday video, looking at the best dog songs in country.

Good morning! Another Friday is upon us and first things first, last night's Brett Kissel concert was amazing! It was an honour to introduce both Brett and Dan Davidson to the stage at the Trans-Canada Theatre. Thanks to everyone who came out and made it an evening to remember. The Olds Grizzlys are on the road today as they spend the weekend up north. They'll be in Spruce Grove tonight before a trip to Lloydminster tomorrow. For our Flashback Friday today, we went back to 1983. That was the year the Canadian government officially adopted the metric system for weights and measures, "Fraggle Rock" debuted on CBC and Bob & Doug McKenzie got their own movie when "Strange Brew" hit theatres. That was also the year that John Anderson rocked the #1 spot on the country charts with this classic.

Good morning! It's finally here! Yes, today is Brett Kissel Concert Day! Brett Kissel and his We Were That Song Tour hit the Trans-Canada Theatre in Olds tonight. We'll be there and I am looking forward to hearing all of his hits, including his newest release "Cecilia", written for his beloved wife. It's a great tune. Not only do we get Brett Kissel in Olds but his opening act will be Dan Davidson. What a great show! I hope to see you there! On this day in country music, one of the genre's biggest stars recorded her first big hit. It was on this day in 1956 that a young Patsy Cline entered a studio and recorded "Walkin' After Midnight". She only got the song because it had been rejected by Kay Starr. The single would be Cline's first huge hit and help to launch her career.

Good morning! Well, it wasn't exactly the Tuesday night the Olds Grizzlys had in mind. The Black & Gold fell 4-0 to the Drayton Valley Thunder, dropping their record on the season to 2-18-1. We'll see if they can get back in the win column on Friday when they visit Spruce Grove. It's a busy day in Red Deer as Agritrade kicks off. Our own Cory Noel is there all day today so drop by and say hello. On this day in country music history, Merle Haggard held the top spot on the album charts in 1970 with "The Fightin' Side Of Me". Not only was the album a success but the title track would also be a #1 hit.

Good morning! It's another beautiful day with snow on the ground, cold temperatures in the forecast and hockey in the arena. It's another Grizzlys Game Day on CKfm with the Drayton Valley Thunder stopping in to town this evening. We'll have coverage, starting with the pre-game show, at 7:25 pm. As for today's Top 5 Tuesday, it's all about going non-traditional. Everyone knows country music is made up of guitars, banjos, fiddles and mandolins. Our top five list today counts down the top five tunes that feature instruments you wouldn't think of when you think country music.

Good morning! Another weekend is in the rear view mirror and we are back at it on the Olds Institute Good Morning Show. We've got plenty coming up this week with the Grizzlys on the air tomorrow night and Brett Kissel in concert on Thursday. Also, don't forget that Agri-Trade takes place this week in Red Deer and our own Cory Noel will be there on Wednesday. As for November 5th in country music history, this was the day that Johnny Cash's "American IV" album was released. That album featured Cash's cover of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails. The music video would win a slew of awards and be proclaimed as one of the greatest in music history.
