We had the opportunity to speak with Lakeland Magic President Shelly Wilkes on the show today. The team is getting ready to tip-off their second season at the RP Funding Center. Shelly was here to tell us about the Lakeland Magic 5K, a race around the center with the finish line at center court of the George Jenkins Arena.
Eating for Five
We talked about food on the show today. I know, big shocker! The question is how much do you have to eat at an all you can eat buffet before the owner tells you thank you, please don’t come back? Find out just how much one guy housed when you listen to today’s clip of the day. Also included for your listening pleasure, the holiday season is coming and you may want to pick up some of this candy to share with friends and family. Or not. It’s your call.
Rusty Wright Band
Another successful week of Mayhem in the AM has come to a close and we’re ready for the weekend! Of course, it wouldn’t be a Friday show without Mayhem in the AM Presents Lakeland Live!! Today we featured the Rusty Wright Band. The band’s been touring and making music since 2004 and we’re lucky to work with one of the members of the band, bassist Nic Allen. They’re playing September 28th at LkldLive in downtown Lakeland and tickets are going fast so get yours while you can. You definitely won’t regret seeing this show. Here’s a taste from their visit with us and you can see a video for their new single, “No Man is an Island” on our Facebook page. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you again dark and early Monday morning on Talk 1430 & Talk 96.7.
Willkommen in Amerika, Rebekka!
Mayhem Political Analyst Dr. Bruce Anderson of Florida Southern College brought along Fulbright Scholar Rebekka Matthoff. Rebekka joins us from Germany and will be studying here in Lakeland for the next year. Rebekka made her radio debut on Mayhem in the AM today and we’re so glad to have her!
A House Divided
A new survey asked people if they could date someone who was a fan of their rival sports team. 22% of the women surveyed said they could NOT, and it turns out Talonda is one of those women!
Adult Report Cards
How would you ‘grade’ your significant other? A website asked people to give a standard letter grade (A, B, C, D or F) to their better halves in several categories. We couldn’t leave this one alone, especially with two people in the room that are in long-term relationships.
It’s how we always start out the segment but it’s just a jab at Christopher for still being without a significant other. Christopher is Single. You can count on it and we’ll give you updates but the bottom line is he’ll be alone forever as long as it’s great content on the show! Talk about sacrifice!! Today we gave Christopher a new tool to add to his dating arsenal and then he willingly shared an online dating experience that actually related to what we were talking about. Hear it all on today’s Clip of the Day!
You’re Getting Sleepy…
Today on the show, we heard about a product that purports to help you fall asleep within 30 minutes. It’s called Som Sleep. The question we posed ourselves; could we drink this beverage at the beginning of the three hour show and still be able to go the distance? Should we try it? This could be a new Mayhem taste test with a twist! Stay tuned.
Today on Mayhem in the AM Presents Lakeland Live!! was a perfect example of what we’re trying to showcase on this weekly segment. Anisette Mayer is a great singer and songwriter raised right here in Lakeland.
We really believe local music on local radio is something that’s great for the community and we’ll continue to try and find the best acts to share with you.
You can hear our whole chat with Anisette here and then go to our Facebook page to see a video of the song “Shameless Woman.”
We’ll continue to try and make our show your destination for local talk and local talent. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend and if you’re off or not on Monday, tune in at 6 a.m. for the next all-new edition of Mayhem in the AM on Talk 1430 & Talk 96.7.
