WMMO Remembers

There are men and women who risk their lives in our community everyday so that we may be safe. These are our First Responders. They are why WMMO has First Responder Friday, as a way of thanking them one at a time in an effort to reach each individual to convey our thanks.

 

Unfortunately since we began this program we have seen some of our First Responders lose their lives and sadder still is that some of these losses have been in the line of duty. We keep these men and women, their family, friends and brother and sister First Responders constantly in our thoughts. 

 

This page is to keep their memories alive. We will go back and add people as the page continues. We pray that our future updates and additions will not be many. 

 

To every man and woman working to protect us today please know we are thinking about you constantly and we wish you a safe return home at the end of your shift.

Check Out Axl Rose’s Looney New Tune

Check Out Axl Rose’s Looney New Tune

Axl Rose has released his first new music since 2008.

I’m betting it wasn’t what you were expecting.

The song is called “Rock The Rock”.

Axl had nothing to do with writing the song.

It’s a song from the “New Looney Tunes” episode "Armageddon Outta Here, Part Two" which premiered on December 24th.

In the episode Axl asks Bugs Bunny and Porky pig directions to the Civic Center where he will be playing with his band Steel Underpants.

They tell him it doesn’t matter because an asteroid is headed towards Earth and will destroy our planet before the show.

Axl says his new speakers can “Shake mountains to the ground”.

Bugs suggests that Axl using the Looney Tunes gang as his backing band play loud enough to destroy the asteroid.

The song they play is Axl’s new tune. 

Watch what happens below.

Christmas Punk From CJ Ramone, Little Steven And More

I love Christmas music no matter what genre.

Provided it’s a good song of course.

Here are a few Punk Christmas selections that I think you’ll really dig.

There are a couple new tracks from my buddy CJ Ramone.

There is his original “Christmas Lullabye” and his cover of The Kinks “Father Christmas”.

You also get to see Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul run through The Ramones Classic “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)”.

Then there is also Joey Ramone covering Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” from the Phil Spector Christmas Album that U2 also famously covered.

Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy the tunes!!!

Watch The Trailer For Netflix “Springsteen On Broadway”

“Springsteen On Broadway” is an extremely powerful show that Bruce has been doing since October 2017.

The run of shows has been extended twice. 

It features Springsteen telling stories and performing songs either on acoustic guitar or on piano.

He is joined by his wife to sing with him on a couple tunes each night.

I saw the show back in January and it knocked me out.

I always described a Springsteen concert as taking me to a certain time and place in my life.

I describe this show as encompassing my entire life.

Watch the trailer below and then catch the entire show starting December 16th on Netflix.

Watch WKRP’s “Turkeys Away” The Funniest Thanksgiving TV Show Ever

October 30th 1978 “WKRP In Cincinnati” aired a Thanksgiving themed episode.

It was titled “Turkeys Away”.

It easily has to be the funniest Thanksgiving TV show ever.

Station manager Arthur “Big Guy” Carlson has a great idea to push turkeys out of a helicopter.

Of course the problem can be summed up in the classic line from the episode “As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly”.

One of the craziest things about this is that it was based on an actual radio station’s promo event gone awry.

Watch the show for yourself below and have a great Thanksgiving!!!

Watch Rami Malek Side By Side With Freddie Mercury

The movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a big hit.

A lot of people are raving about the job Rami Malek did playing Freddie Mercury.

Exactly how good of a job did he do?

See for yourself.

The video below shows Freddie’s actual performance with Queen at Live Aid side by side with the filming of that scene from the movie.

I must say, it is incredible.

WATCH: Tom Petty’s Brother & Daughter at Gainesville’s New “Tom Petty Park”

Bruce Petty speaks exactly like Tom. LOVED what he said. Filled my heart with joy.

Let’s do a road trip over there!

And Tom’s daughter Adria! You gotta hear what she said about Petty fans helping them cope after losing him.

It’s not a surprise that he has such a great family but it is so nice that they share so much of themselves with us and make us feel part of theirs. Truly beautiful!
