    THE COOL CRITICS discuss THE REPUBLICAN DEBATE

    in Radio

              Today, THE COOL CRITICS will give their take on the recent REPUBLICAN DEBATE that was held in Cleveland, this past THURSDAY, August 6, 2015 - the city where the 2016 Republican convention will be held.  You can see Cleveland hustling up the city to accommodate this event, as they have recently been handed (along with Detroit) several movie making facilites.  Cleveland is ON THE MOVE!


         Donald Trump appears to be leading, but so many critics (not us, cause we're COOL), say that Trump will do like all the other POLL LEADERS did from previous campaigns, where they are out in front early, but fizzle out.  We'll have our take on that too - 347-205-9366 - Call in Ya'll in?  347-205-9366

  • COOL CRITICS LOOK BACK AT 2011 FOUR YEAR ANNIVERSARY MONTH

    in Radio

        Originally, the anniversary show was going to be played today - however due to some technical difficulties, the program that I used to EDIT the show, and put it together, like I did recently with the B B King tribute, the William "Mickey" Stephenson/MOTOWN show, the Mother's day tribute and others - did not work with the current update that I did with WINDOWS 10 - I have to resort to some other methods and do the show next week, which is still in August, by the calendar I checked, so hold onto your mules..... I should have listened to VALCINE's clue when she said she had some issues with Windows 10 and I should have remembered all the other times when WINDOWS updated, it kicked out some programs ETC.


    ANY WHO -


    Tonight, you will hear one of the earlier shows - which featured Mark Dixon, Aaron Anderson, Cecelia Davis and Anna Redding.  This was a show back in 2011 where the COOL CRITICS look back at 2011... Enjoy -


    by the by - there are some shows mentioned here that have changed or are no longer on the network.


    Thank you for being a part of the growth of THE JKN / The Jay King Network.

    THE COOL CRITICS / MICKEY STEVENSON - DANCING IN THE STREETS

    in Radio

         On the Saturday before MOTHER'S DAY, the cool critics did a show on MOTHERS.  A dedication to mothers.  A week ago because B.B. King died, the Cool Critics did a show on BB King.  Both of the shows are available via BlogTalk to download if you want.


    THIS WEEK, after having William "Mickey" Stevenson on KINGS IN THE MORNING, I was thoroughly impressed of what that man brought to MOTOWN Records.  Mickey Stevenson put Motown Records on the map with his writings, with his producing, with his organization.  I saw his name on records, but I never knew how valuable William "MICKEY" Stevenson was the the Motown foundation. With a great foundation like MOTOWN has become, where do you think, the Commodores, Rick James, The Jackson 5, the many many MANY artists that Berry Gordy Jr & the MOTOWN company created, exposed, manufactured and more would have been had there not been a Motown Music Empire?  Today, you will hear his words, his works and learn some information on a piece of Motown.  Thank you for joining us!

    in Radio

         One thing I believe is - (and this is just me, Tolliver) we will always see tragedies as we have witnessed this past week - June 14 - June 20th 2015.  Where a gunman shot and killed 9 people while in bible study.  I have my own opinions, however there are other COOL CRITICS and they have their opinions, and we will share those opinions on our show today.  347-205-9366.  PLUS questions about the flag in question - should it still fly high, what does it mean, what is its significance?


    AND MORE RACHEL DOLEZAL.  347-205-9366.  Her pretend (so to speak) father, her real father and mother - are people looking at the whole pic, or have they been given something else to re-direct their attention on, to prevent the world from coming together?  347-205-9366

    THE COOL CRITICS - SAM DUBOSE IN CINCINNATI

    in Radio

         Bill Cosby is probably in a hole too deep that he can't get out - with all the money he has, I doubt if whatever happens will scathe him, and he's punishing the rest of his cast folk - because they are probably taking the plunge of GUILT BY ASSOCIATION, but in all manners of speaking, you don't know what your significant other is doing all of the time - LET ALONE someone you WORK WITH - 347-205-9366


        In CINCINNATI - this SAM DUBOSE thing - the KILLING OF HIM.  We will get deep with this one, as we usually do, and some residuals of SANDRA BLAND -  347-205-9366.   And oh yeah, we may touch up on the LION shooting.
