The Big JD's Good Morning Show

Friday, May 29th, 2020

Good morning and welcome to another fantastic Friday! It looks like a warm, sunshine-filled gorgeous weekend ahead so make sure you get outside and enjoy some of that over the next few days. For our Flashback Friday today, we went back to the year that was 1971. That year saw Canada's bachelor prime minister, Pierre Trudeau, tie the knot. Trudeau married Margaret Sinclair, 29 years his junior. That same year, here in Alberta, Peter Lougheed's PC party saw a changing of the guard as they took power in the provincial election, ending 36 years of Social Credit Party rule. That same year, an unheralded rookie goalie named Ken Dryden stepped in and led the Montreal Canadiens to their 17th Stanley Cup. He would win the Conn Smythe trophy as playoff MVP. Being a late season call-up, he still qualified as a rookie the following season, giving him the distinction of winning playoff MVP before winning Rookie of the Year. At the box office, "Fiddler On The Roof" was the year's top-grossing film, beating out "Dirty Harry", "Diamonds Are Forever" and "The French Connection". Also in 1971, coffee drinkers in Seattle got a new choice in coffee shops when Starbucks opened its doors. 1971 was also a huge year for Freddie Hart. He had his biggest hit when "Easy Loving" topped the country charts.

Good morning! I must say, yesterday may have been one of my happiest since this pandemic began. My favourite restaurant officially re-opened! You better believe I had the family down at Smitty's in Olds for lunch and it was great to see Warren, Noel, Diane and the rest of the staff back at it. Smitty's is just one of the many restaurants who are open in Olds and area for you to check out, especially today. Wednesdays have been designated "Takeout Days" during this pandemic, an opportunity to help out your local businesses by eating out. Check out all the details from our area on our "What's Open In Olds" page.

Good morning! The May long weekend is officially in the books and I hope you enjoyed yourself because this week looks like nothing but rain. Yes, Mother Nature gave us a nice weekend but now, it looks like we will pay for enjoying the sunshine with a week of wetness. Thankfully, it's Tuesday and that means another Top 5 Tuesday list! Today, we look at one of my favourite artists of all-time and one of country music's biggest legends, George Jones. "The Possum" could be the subject of so many top five lists but today, our list will be all about songs that mention him in the lyrics. There are literally hundreds of country songs that do just that so it was a little tough to whittle it down to five but here they are. Check it out!
