WSGW Morning Team Show: November 28, 2017

Yes, the last days of November on the WSGW Morning Team Show with Charlie and Dave and YOU, and today the expected high is 56 (record high 65 in 2006), and a year ago on this date it was 50…..

Usually, the Wake Up Song of the Day information is posted at the bottom of daily WSGW Morning Team Page.   But it’s at the top this morning because of its special relationship with a man who has had a career taking him out of Saginaw, but Saginaw has never been taken out of him.

Wake Up Song of the Day:   Brian d’Arcy James “Michigan Christmas“.   This Saginaw native has enjoyed an amazing career in entertainment.  This song he debuted at a fundraising event for FNI (Field Neurosciences Institute) at the Temple Theatre in 2003.   It was WSGW’s Art Lewis that encouraged Brian to record the song for radio broadcast and Art was the first to play it on his show.   Click to read more about the story of the song from Brian’s website.   That song led Brian to produce a Christmas CD.

The link to the song itself is that debut performance at the Temple Theatre.

The GOP tax plan getting attention because the Senate starts to take action today.

After the 6:30 news, Charlie and Dave discussed a few aspects of the plan being advanced, including why tax rates are not permanent, why automatic tax rate increases might come into play, and what about the “middle class”?  (runs 8:04)

(Charlie Rood)   For whatever reason, while this dates back to June 6, it’s making the rounds online now.   It has to do with the Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario attending a seminar regarding “LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP”.   What is that?   That is the weird world we live in 2017.   I think a letter is missing – “C” – for Common Sense!   You can listen to hear Charlie and Dave talk about it and click the link to read for yourself.  (runs 4:52)

The world we live in today.   This is not a unique story in the sports relations between Iran and Israel, but it’s still a sad story.   Dave says “Iran’s sport ministry” sounds like an oxymoron.   Charlie says the word moron is appropriate for Iran.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ An Iranian wrestler says his managers told him to
intentionally lose to a Russian competitor to avoid facing an Israeli wrestler
in the next round.

Ali Reza Karimi late Monday told the semi-official ISNA news agency that only
one minute before the end of a Sunday round of the U-23 World Championship in Poland his coaches told him to throw the match to avoid facing an Israeli
wrestler.

He says: “In a moment, my whole world seemed to come to an end.”

Israel and Iran are bitter adversaries and Iranian athletes traditionally
refrain from competing against Israelis. Iran’s government usually rewards such behavior.

Karimi says he was beating Russian Alikhan Zhabrailov when coaches told him to lose.

Iran’s sport ministry in a statement praised Karimi for supporting “human
values.”

Had to take a moment to recognize the death of this musician.   Only 70 years old, but performing for a long time, starting when he was 14!

UNDATED (AP) _ Mitch Margo, founding member of The Tokens, has died. The
group’s Facebook page says Margo died peaceably in his sleep Thursday. Details were not given. Margo was 14 when The Tokens recorded “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” which became a number-one hit in 1961. Bandmate Jim Leslie writes on Facebook Margo was “someone who inspired me to always appreciate life, art, music and just being kind to one another.” He describes Margo’s death as sudden.
