The Big JD's Good Morning Show
Friday, January 18th, 2019
Good morning and welcome to a Grizzlys GAMEDAY! We've got coverage tonight as the Grizz host the Calgary Mustangs. Puck drop is set for 7:30 pm. We'll also bring you tomorrow night's game against Drumheller, starting at 7:00 pm. Saturday night's game is Westview Co-op Bike Night so bring the kids because somebody is winning a brand new bicycle! For today's Flashback Friday, we went back to 1968. That was the year "Rosemary's Baby" terrified audiences at the box office, Johnny married June and TV got its first interracial kiss when William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols shared a smooch on an episode of "Star Trek". That year, Henson Cargill had the biggest hit on the country charts. This classic stayed at #1 for five weeks.

Good morning! What a thriller last night in Didsbury! If you missed the broadcast, the Mountain View Colts earned a 4-2 win over the Red Deer Vipers, thanks to great play from every player. It looked like a complete effort, whether it was netminder Ethan Woodward (who earned his first career win against the Vipers), the penalty kill (who killed off four penalties in the game) or team captain Alan Klinck (who scored the game-winner with 0.2 seconds left in the 2nd period while also notching his 100th career point in his 100th career game). Our next broadcast will be the rematch between the Colts and Vipers on February 1st. As for today, happy birthday wishes go out to Steve Earle. The alt-country star had some big hits back in the day, including this classic.

Good morning and welcome to GAMEDAY in Colt Country! We've got our first Mountain View Colts broadcast of the new year tonight when the boys in blue play host to the Red Deer Vipers. The Vipers have knocked the Colts out of the playoffs in the last two years so Mountain View is anxious for a shot at revenge. We'll have coverage, starting with the pre-game show, at 7:55 pm. Tune in for all the action. In the meantime, today is the 76th birthday of a country music legend. Ronnie Milsap was born on this day in 1943. An incredible musician and songwriter, Milsap sits 3rd on the all-time list for #1 songs on the country charts, behind just Conway Twitty and George Strait. Here's one of his #1 hits, named the top song of 1985.

Good morning! It was a busy Tuesday morning on the Good Morning Show today. Congrats go out to Shirley who added her name to our list of qualifiers for the Dierks Bentley Burning Man Tour ticket giveaway. Don't forget to stay tuned all this week for your chance to qualify! We also had Olds Grizzlys coach Joe Murphy stop by for the Coach's Show. We talked about the team's trade deadline acquisition, defenceman Nolan Spadafore. He looks to bring some good puck-moving ability and a bit of size to the Grizzlys blue line. The Grizz are back in action this weekend with back-to-back home games. On Friday night, they welcome the Calgary Mustangs into The Den before Saturday's community favourite, Co-op Bike Night! Three lucky winners will be taking home brand new bicycles that night as the Grizzlys battle the rival Drumheller Dragons on the ice. Both games will be broadcast on our airwaves as well so make sure you're tuned in for all the action with The Voice Of The Grizzlys, Galen Hartviksen. As for today's Top 5 Tuesday list, it's all about one of the greatest inspirations for songwriters, their wives. It's the top five songs written for wives on Top 5 Tuesday.

Good morning! Back at it on a Thursday morning and it looks like we're starting to warm up out there. Environment Canada calling for highs of +9 and +6 over the weekend so it looks like a bit of a chinook is passing through our area. Things heating up for Southside Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and RV Centre. They're inside all three pavilions at Westerner Park in Red Deer for their off-site sales event and they'll be there till Sunday. Our own Cory Noel will be there this Saturday, hanging out from 11-3 so make sure you drop by to say hi and check out the deals! For today in country music history, we take a look at January 10th, 1962. That was the day Patsy Cline's "She's Got You" was released. The song, written by the great Hank Cochran, would be another #1 for Patsy and be one of the biggest hits of the year. Check it out!

Good morning! Well, we're officially halfway through the week. The Mountain View Colts continued their road trip last night in Blackfalds and, unfortunately, were on the wrong end of a 4-1 score. They'll head out to Big Valley this weekend to battle Stettler but we'll have coverage of the Colts next week. They play their first home game of 2019 on January 16th when the Red Deer Vipers drop by the Didsbury Memorial Complex. Our broadcast begins with the pre-game show at 7:55 pm. For today in country music history, we celebrate the birthday of one of the biggest stars of the 80's. Ladies and gentleman, the incomparable Crystal Gayle.

Good morning! It was a busy morning around the studio today. We said hello to Olds Grizzlys Head Coach Joe Murphy for the first edition of the Olds Grizzlys Coach's Show in 2019. The Grizz are gearing up for two games this weekend, in Okotoks on Friday night and at home on Saturday against the Eagles. We also took the time to celebrate two music legends born on this day. It was on this day in 1928 that Johnny Cash's guitarist Luther Perkins was born. One of the keys to Cash's "Boom-Chicka-Boom" style, Perkins was immortalized in Johnny's song "Luther Played The Boogie". January 8th was also the day that the world met The King. Elvis was born on this day in 1935. From an early age, I fell in love with The King's music, whether it be from his rockabilly days, his comeback special period, his Vegas years, his country stuff or his gospel numbers. Since it's almost impossible to pick a top five of Elvis tunes, here's my crack at his top five movies.

Good morning! We are back at it with our first Monday of the new year and it wasn't exactly a weekend to remember for the Olds Grizzlys. The black and gold fell 7-0 in Bonnyville on Friday before dropping a 6-3 decision to Fort Mac on Saturday. The Grizz will be in Okotoks this Friday night before returning home for their first home tilt of the new year when they host Canmore on Saturday night. For this day in country music, it's a happy birthday to the Jolly Green Giant of country music, Jack Greene. He had a huge hit in 1966 with this classic, the first song ever named Song of the Year at the CMA Awards.
