It’s wonderful to be back on the air for 2 hours! Although, I must say I have enjoyed the faster pace of the one hour shows lately. If you missed us then here is what you missed…
Café Talk: Have you experienced OR witnessed a major party blooper?
1st Hour– This Day In History and News
Sharman Strode, entertainer and lead female singer of the Shindigs joined me in studio; and Brianna is back!

Brianna, Sharman, and I chimed in on Cafe Talk by sharing Facebook posts. I referenced a survey conducted by BJs Wholesale Club which indicated that some 65% of Americans say that they have witnessed a “party blooper”. Examples include, running out of food or drinks, OR not having appropriate activities for children.
Before wrapping up the hour, I finally introduced Sharman Strode as the second singer to sign on to the 10th Annual Christmas Broadcast. She shared that she began performing in her high school swing choir and then went on to sing on various praise and worship teams in local churches. About 10 years ago, she started performing in a 60’s cover band and for the last 6 years have been performing as lead female singer for the Shindig band. She’s also a keyboardist.
