Oh I woke up Sunday morning with no Dr. Pinkus on the radio (can you hear me singing?) YAY!!!
Every Sunday morning I enjoy waking up in bed and listening to the Lutheran Hour on CJWW Radio. My Mom and Dad and Grandma all listened to the Lutheran Hour every Sunday morning for years and years. Since the new young speaker has taken over, I find myself looking forward to his messages and not wanting to miss a single word! As soon as the Lutheran Hour was over, however, the radio station was immediately turned off because advertising by Dr. Pinkus was definitely not what I wanted to listen to on Sunday morning! I was so happy to inadvertently leave the radio on this past weekend and there was wonderful good old country music on right after the Lutheran Hour instead of Dr. Pinkus. Thank you CJWW!
Having been born in 1947, I entered this world just at the beginning of the Baby Boomer era. Roy Rogers was very popular when I was a child growing up. Television was not really “in” at the time, but as youngsters, Roy Rogers was one of our favorite idols. Until I had the occasion to look further into the background of the Sons of the Pioneers recently, I was not aware that our favorite cowboy was a founding member of the Sons of the Pioneers. I was also not aware that Roy Rogers was not his real name – it was Leonard Sly…
When I graduated from High School in the ‘60’s my goal was to put “Small town Saskatchewan” behind me as quickly as possible. We did not have typing in High School in our small town, so in order to fulfill my dream of becoming a secretary, it was necessary to move to Regina and attend a Business College. Thankfully my aunt lived there and I was able to room and board with her and her family. I was able to complete my steno course and eventually obtain a small apartment with my girlfriend and start my career as a legal secretary, with my goal being to move to “God’s Country – Calgary, Alberta”, as soon as possible.
It is not very often I can tear myself away from the television set in the evenings. However, this past Saturday night I had the occasion to enjoy the “Old Time Dance Party” on CJWW Radio, as there was nothing decent on T.V. One of the songs they played was “I don’t want her, you can have her, she’s too fat for me!!”!!! HEAVEN FORBID - I wouldn’t have thought they could get away with playing that “terrible” old song in this day and age of “political correctness”!! But how I enjoyed it! It brought back precious memories of the old time dancing we enjoyed, political correctness be darned!
