It was really nice to host the morning show today. Here’s a recap:
Cafe Talk: Call in to honor and shout out a loved one whom has lost his/her life while serving this country in the armed forces.
Here’s more on the show…
*I shared Memorial Day History and facts including the number of War Deaths since World War I as well as during the Civil War. Both numbers are over 620,000.
*I shared memory research results of German researcher/scientist, Herman Ebbinghaus. He discovered that most humans forget as much as 40% within 20 minutes of learning something and 80% after a day or two.
*I shared a couple of famous quotes for Memorial Day, reminded listeners to practice safe driving; and played Patriotic music.
*Reported on status of 4 year old boy who was attacked by a Gorilla while visiting a Cincinnati zoo. Harambe, the gorilla, was shot to death in order to save the boys life.
*Talked and commented on Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals… Golden State Warriors v. Oklahoma City Thunder. By the way, Game 7 airs today at 8pm on Channel 7 according to Steve Broadway, a longtime WJOL listener.
*Reported and commented on several techniques to improve your memory that includes everything from eating healthy to exercise to repetitive study/learning; to stress reduction.
*Listeners enjoyed more Patriotic music.
*TV Talk was very brief and included report on “Stars who walked away from hit TV shows and the announcement that Tamar Braxton is out as co-host of Fox tv’s talkshow, The Real.
*Passion for Fashion…again, this segment was shortened. I reported on the fashion trend of “summer sweaters”!
*I discovered that there are at least three (3) stars who share my Birthday today… Idina Menzel, Ceelo Green, and Wynonna Judd.
*Shared entertainment news about Adele quietly purchasing a mansion in Los Angeles; Paris Jackson attends prom with one of her girl friends; and NCIS star, Zoe McLellan’s divorce is finalized.
I closed the show with Estelle’s inspirational song, “Conqueror” and left listeners with a couple of ways to strive to live the life of a conqueror. First, see your problems as a gift and a lesson. It removes the fear. Secondly, challenge your thoughts and explore the source. If they are negative thoughts replace them with positive thoughts and remove the negative source from your life. Thirdly, focus on giving, not getting. Those who give always receive in the end. Next, be someone else who is fearless in order to push passed your fears. Lastly, just do something! Keep yourself busy or try something new to get your mind off the fear in your life.
