Scott remembers those days when TV and radio stations would actually sign off the air. They would play the Star Spangled Banner twice a day - when signing on and when signing off. Scott even did that early in his career at radio stations. Stations did it not because it was an FCC requirement - they did it because it seemed the right thing to do.
Stations don't sign on and off anymore. Most are licensed to operate 24-hours a day. So Scott & Sadie want to play the Star Spangled Banner once a day, because it doesn't get that airplay anymore, and just because it seems the right thing to do.
Here's a great way to honor the brave men and women who have served and are serving this great nation! Each weekday, Scott & Sadie will dedicate the pledge AND our entire show to a brave soldier - but you have to let us know about them!
Just send us an e-mail and let us know who you would like to dedicate the national anthem to.
Weekday mornings from 5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

On Veterans Day we ask ourselves why we only celebrate our veterans ONE DAY a year. We understand the significance of 11/11, still, it only seems appropriate to us that we honor the brave men and women who have or who are serving this great nation on a daily basis! That's why we have created this simple gallery - the Gallery of Heroes - so we might set aside a tiny little piece on the internet to pay tribute and respect to those who serve.
It would bring us no greater joy than if you would send us a picture of your hero. Simply email that photo to Scott@BigCountry979.com with a brief bio of the person in the pic. Let us post their photo and draw attention to the sacrifice that they make and/or made as a soldier and to the sacrifice made by that soldier's family. It is the least we could do and it is our pleasure and honor to do so!
Check out all the pics from Saturday October 26th and a big day of fun!
The 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party is tomorrow night. Details HERE. Scott ordered this sweater to the event...
And the video of it being opened...
And Scott wearing his sweater...
BUMMED! He ordered a 2XL and got a small. He'll return it, but it doesn't help the fact that he is SWEATERLESS for the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party tomorrow night. Suggestions for Scott? Please use your Facebook login below. Where does one obtain a sweater at such a late date?
Brian Jones has turned the house used in A Christmas Storyinto a museum. He paid $500,000 for it and renovated it with new windows, new siding and a fresh coat of green and yellow paint to match its decor in the movie. Brian also decorated the home like Ralphie's parents did by putting in a brown-and-white tile kitchen floor, a wide cast-iron sink in the kitchen, a claw-foot bathtub and, of course, a leg lamp in the window.
Check out the house's website HERE.

A mysterious tipper has been leaving thousands of dollars for servers, bartenders and golf caddies across the country with little clue to his/her/their identity other than the Instagram handle @TipsForJesus scrawled on the receipts. Jesus' tips include several in Ann Arbor, Michigan ($3,000 at Tio's Mexican Cafe, $2,000 at the Alley Bar), a few in Chicago ($3,000 at the Boundary, $5,000 at Paris Club), and a whole bunch in Los Angles ($1,000 at Fig & Olive, $10,000 at theHungry Cat, $500 at Jumbo's Clown Room). It's unclear who is behind these tips, which amount to more than $54,000 so far, although it's suspected that it could be multiple people. Or it might just be Jesus himself.

Former bobsledder Pyotr Makarchuk momentarily set himself on fire while carrying the Olympic torch through the Siberian city of Abakan last week. As Makarchuk jogged through a cheering crowd, it appeared that some of the torch's fuel dripped onto his left arm and shoulder, which were engulfed in flames before an escort promptly patted them down. Conversely, after the torch blew out on a windy Moscow street last month, a bystander jumped into action with his cigarette lighter. The Russians have organized the longest torch relay in Olympic history in advance of the 2014 Sochi Games, a journey that has included trips to the North Pole and the international space station.

We adopted Super Cooper the Wonder Dog just this last weekend. He is an awesome, 3-year old golden retriever. Here he is...
Julie's grandmother, Claire Wood, was an opera singer. When Claire passed, she left Julie a beautiful baby grand piano. Here it is...
Julie is worried that Super Cooper the Wonder Dog is going to eat the piano. She literally wants to barricade the piano with baby gates. I think she is being irrational and that we can just keep an eye on Super Cooper. And the fight ensues.

Dear Scott and Sadie,
I am in the dog house big-time right now. I love my fiance, Karen, with all my heart and I think she is perfect the way she is. I tell her that everyday. One of her biggest insecurities is a curse from her father - a rather pronounced Italian nose. She hates it. She talks CONSTANTLY about getting a nose job. I love her regardless, but it is obviously a big deal to her.
Friday was her birthday. So I checked out cosmetic surgeons from Fort Collins to Denver, found the one everyone says is best, and bought her a nose job for her birthday. She exploded. Stormed away from the restaurant. I followed her - we got in a yelling match in the parking lot. She tells me it is the most insensitive gift she has ever received and that if I didn't like her the way she is, I could go straight to hell! I tried to plead my case - I told her she is beautiful to me regardless of her nose, but since she always talks about getting her nose done - I figured this gift would show that I listened to her and cared about her feelings.
She wouldn't even let me take her home. She called a friend for a ride and has not returned my calls or texts since Friday. I'm at a loss for words. What do I do? Karen listens to your show all the time - so I thought I would submit this for a Love Court. Am I such a monster for listening to her, understanding her insecurities and trying to help her feel better about her self?
Signed - Jason
