    Bill Smith Retirement

    Hey Bill ! I wasn't able to reply directly to your post probably because I don't know how this still works on the forums and when I hit reply it didn't give me an option to type anything so here goes. What a great story and history. I recal reading many of your posts back in the day. You were...

    Daddy Daughter Date Event

    Well howdy y'all !!!! I haven't been here in several years but I have been starting to take an event or 2 here and there. Been out driving a big rig and getting more spiritual and such. I have an event I'm preparing for and thought maybe I could get some ideas from the old gang. The event is...

    Howdy Y'all from Texas!

    I took a couple of years off to go driving a big rig so I guess I've been SEMI-retired eh! Anybody from the old days still around? Remember the LDJC? Driving an 18 wheeler sure is a trip! Especially after DJ'ing for 20 years and being my own boss and only really busting my butt on...

    Toyota Recall

    So you'e headed down the road at 75 mph and all of a sudden your speed increases substantially to 100 or more mph. You're in a Toyota and you can't quickly figure out why you're suddenly breaking the law but the brakes don't slow you down and you're actually increasing speed. What would you...

    North Dakota Bound

    Thanks Drax: Yes the compitition is very heavy. I've read and heard lots of great things about the established companies in Bismarck. Many of them I would be honored to be associated with for sure. Heck I might not be up to their caliber. I just do what I do and try to improve every time I...

    North Dakota Bound

    Yes Earl: I am born and bred in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada. Got my USA passport in 1992 since my Mom was born in Wisconsin I managed to acquire dual citizenship back then and have lived the USA patriotic life ever since arriving in Texas in 1993. I love the USA and have many problems with...

    North Dakota Bound

    Robert: Winter is great. Snowmobiles, Skating, Cross Country Skiing, Shinney, ice fishing, fireplaces with a reason to use them (like the company of a fine lady to snuggle with) and hot chocolate. Guess I'll need to install a block heater in my truck and buy an ice scraper hahaha! Eldon...

    North Dakota Bound

    It's been so slow around here that I can take one of my last big event bookings and make it my very last in Texas. I plan on being established in Bismarck, North Dakota by March 1st, 2010 and since I'm not a huge threat I hope the local and established DJ Companies will use my experience and...

    I'm back! (-ish...)

    I wore my LDJC hat to a restaurant years ago and got the cop discount. The cashier asked what is LDJC and I said "Legal Department of Justice Constabulary", I'm the Judge Police. She gave me a $5.00 discount and I didn't say anything more. Did this really happen? What do you think...

    Anybody got a Game Show System for sale?

    I have mine for sale too. It's the first model. I've taken good care of it but if you're picky it could use some touch ups on the carpet corners. I need to take some pics and post them over the next week or 2 when I find the time. It's a fun thing to have and work but my dream of an...

    Hey, NEW guys! The LDJC....

    Hey all you stinkin' fudge parkers of the LDJC! Edited by taking out a c where the R went just to keep the moderator from spazzing out. Ryan used to give us some lee way if we were LDJC Charter Members. Sorry I missed the last session. Some of the best laughs ever for me were on the LDJC...

    Rex is Closing Here

    Rex is a retailer that moves large ticket merchandise like TV's, and big ticket items I guess you could say. They always had a flyer in the Sunday paper with coupons and discounts until recently. Now they are closed. While they were open I often thought about how they sold enough to even get...

    Radio legend Paul Harvey dies at age 90

    I seemed to always be kind of ticked off about how many commercials were involved with a Paul Harvey Broadcast. Maybe 2 to 3 in the intro for local spots, then Paul's intro and some national spots, then the meat of his show "Paul Harvey News" & the same thing for "Paul Harvey, The Rest Of The...

    Brides lose thousands

    It would likely be tough to move into a financially messed up operation given all the legal repercushions but I would think someone with experience in our industry could make almost any venue a money maker. If you've paid attention to the management (usually less than desireable), staff...

    Circuit City Liquidation

    I prefered C.City over B. Buy for some reason. Maybe it was because they were less busy and I was waited on promptly. Can't say for sure. Remember many months ago C. City and Radio Shack fired many long time employees for no reason other than economics and many were done by email in R...

    50th Anniversay - February 3rd, 1959 - The Day The Music Died

    ABC radio networks used to have many specials that aired on their stations back in the late 80's and early 90's (maybe more years than that). One show that I caught the tale end of was of Don Maclean explaining exactly like Ken is portraying. A Line By Line or paragraph by paragraph...
