    Dadio's Lunch Bucket Radio Clinic #80 - a "Hey Ya' Big Jerk Productions" gig

    in Current Events

    DADIO'S LUNCH BUCKET RADIO CLINIC: Show 80 - Tuesday,  5 May 2015, 3:00 p.m.


    Live again this week..., our 80th show over all on Janesville Community Radio (JCR) ..., and ...., our first show at the new up-teched studio at the JCR home building in downtown Janesville, Wisconsin..., or at least what's left of it and the Dadio.

    Today's parsings: Bangladeshi children die in....,  sweat shops that make our junk; vanishing turkey population in Minnesota;and...., the vernerable Chicago Cubs anouncer Harry Caray pops in. 

    Dadio's Lunch Bucket has a little bit of everything. Live from the MY OFFICE JVL building, and sometimes on the road at local taverns and coffee shops, the Radio Clinic risks the perils of ad hoc radio. There is a working class blue-collar theme with local and regional interests that weave through the show. Some college degrees are mixed in. And, all along the way they try to give a voice to those ignored by the status quo.  Somehow, they entertain us all in the process.


    Segments include but are not limited to:  Word Phrase; Fish Fry; Quiz; Blue-Collar Jobs; Wisconsin War Casualties; News and Comment; and..., Burgers.


    You need to ask Dadio and his crew some questions..., the man comes with his own support group that is prepared and ready to pull him out of the holes he invariably digs himself into!


    Call the show, play the quiz, win, make Dadio buy you a beverage at a local watering hole!
