The world is going crazy, and while I would love to report all about it, we’ve got to move.  So this Sunday we will be dark and when we return it will be Nov. 6 and that will be our 50th show!

Please share your voice with us:  (213) 814-3511  Especially if you were a former guest, give us the update. Record a 3-5 minute message there and we will include your voice in next week’s show.  Next week, if we cannot broadcast on location, we will instead take a retrospective look and have out last 2 hour show.  We will be leaner and meaner and do a 60 minute show from Show 51 on.

By the way, last week, I was looking for a moving checklist to make sure I took care of everything.  I signed up on this one site and it asked for my number,  I gave it my Skype message number and I have been getting tons of calls from MOVERS!  We have 5 sons.  We don’t need movers!  Learn from my mistake:  NEVER GIVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER OUT WHEN TRYING TO GET INFO.  A SALESMAN (MEN/WOMEN/EXTRA TERRESTRIALS) will call!  See you Nov. 6 unless something major happens!

James Reynolds, Days of Our Lives

James Reynolds was raised in the small farming community of Oskaloosa, Kansas. “It was great growing up in a small town,” he recalls. “The town’s entire population came to only eight hundred and our lifestyle was generally one of peace and quiet, disturbed only rarely by an unexpected event. My grandparents told me of the time they were held hostage overnight by several escaped convicts from the nearby Leavenworth Federal Prison.
