Do you remember him? He was an Entertainment Tonight Host, who became a piano player, and then transformed into a radio talk show host.
Here in the Windy State, Oklahoma not Illinois, John's show airs in the evening. Most nights I hear bits and pieces of his show, and always walk away learning something. He has great random information. He really does, I'm not being sarcastic. Here's an example of the random facts I've learned from John.
1.Random Fact on Love-The Reason I Can't Get a Date
Men typically wait until they're financially stable to take on a wife and family - and since they aren't getting the jobs anymore, they aren't getting the wife, either. Plus, men are being bombarded with slacker role models. The typical guy you see in movies and on sitcoms is an over-grown frat boy with no direction in life, and the women aren't waiting around for him to grow up. Now, can I get an Amen? I would like to give a disclaimer: Bone and DJ are both good guys and do have jobs.
2. Random Fact on Travel- Frustration on an Airplane
More and more travelers say they’re sick of sitting next to an overweight passenger who bulges into their seat. Legal experts say you have every right to complain, because when you buy your airline ticket, you’re entitled to 100% of your seat, not the 70% or 60% left after an obese traveler spills into it. In fact, it’s against the law for you to share even 1% of your seat. Today most airlines charge obese passengers for two tickets if they can’t fit into one seat with the seat belt buckled and armrests down.
3. Random Fact on Health-Allergies
Wind. Dr. Bill Sears is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of California School of Medicine. He says the pollen that causes most eye, nose, and lung problems – like oak and ragweed - are very light and easily distributed by the wind. Your best bet: Stay indoors on windy days - especially in the morning, because that’s when plants release pollen. You can track your local levels of airborne irritants on the website Pollen.com.
4. Random Fact on Weight Loss-How to lose 5lbs in one week
