Wednesday: Drumbeats of war with N. Korea, and remembering Glen Campbell with Denny Tedesco

Today on The JJ McCartney Show:

An abbreviated visit with IQ Al Rassooli in hour 1, as we discuss the week’s news developments with North Korea, as well as the brain-dead left continues their non-stop assault on our Commander in Chief.

In hour 2 we delve deeply into the escalation of hostilities with North Korea, and President Trump’s vow to meet the North’s escalating was of words, and how American bombers and munitions are being readied in Guam for what seems like an inevitable military response aimed at silencing madman dictator Kim Jung Un, and the nuclear ambitions of the rogue state.

Analysis and strategic angles will be discussed, and we would like your feedback as well.

In hour 3, we will celebrate the life of an American original, whose musical talent was an influence for decades. One of the world’s greatest guitarists, and equally a skilled vocalist. Glen Campbell died yesterday after a years-long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

We’ll discuss Glen’s extraordinary music career with film-maker Denny Tedesco, the producer of the outstanding hit documentary “The Wrecking Crew”, the film that tells the story of the band of studio session musicians from the late 50’s and through the 60’s that featured the guitars of his father, Denny Tedesco and a young man from Delight Arkansas, by the name of Glen Campbell.

Denny and JJ will discuss the life and times of Glen Campbell and the Wrecking Crew in hour 3 of the show.

it’s going to be a special edition of The JJ McCartney Show LIVE at www.jjmccartney, RedStateTalkRadio, and streaming video on the YouTube channel.

Glen Travis Campbell 1936-2017

Sadly, one of my all-time favorite musicians has passed away.
Glen Travis Campbell, born in Delite, Arkansas, died today after years of bravely battling the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease.
There are so many memories and songs that Glen performed or played on that it would boggle the mind.
Glen was a self-taught guitar player, and long before he became a household name, he was a highly sought-after studio musician, playing on hundreds of hit records. Campbell played on hits by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and many others. He was part of a group of studio musicians that would eventually be called “The Wrecking Crew” because of their ability to knock out songs faster – and better – than any other session musicians in the  nation.
I highly recommend you watch the documentary “The Wrecking Crew”, which chronicles the amazing group of musicians who played on the majority of American-made hits of the 1960’s.
Glen became a member of the Beach Boys filling in for Brian Wilson for a summer while Wilson was working on writing the Pet Sounds album.
Glenn’s big break came in the summer of 1968, when the Smother’s Brothers variety show was looking for a ‘filler’ show to cover the weeks when they did not produce shows. Glen Campbell was their top-choice for the show, which became a smash success. Once the American television audience saw Glen Campbell, he became the most popular and celebrated country/pop act, and his albums “Gentle on my Mind” and “Wichita Lineman” sold by the millions.
Campbell went on to have more chart success in the 1970’s, including one of the top records of 1975, “Rhinestone Cowboy”. Campbell charted through the 1970’s, and as his personal life became tabloid fodder, his star waned. But he was a fixture of soft-rock and country radio, and in the 1980’s he found more success by singing songs penned by Jimmy Webb, who had written many of Campbell’s earlier hits.
Campbell was a born-again Christian, and after much tumult in his personal life in the early 1980’s, he cleaned up his act and found in his 3rd wife, Kim, the formula that would once again endear him to all America.
In the mid-2000’s, Campbell developed signs of early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. He bravely recorded one more album after his diagnosis, and even went on a national tour,, playing with many of his children who helped monitor him and help him on the rare occasions when he would lose his way.
Glen Campbell’s early albums were fixtures in my home when I was a kid. He was a special talent, and it saddened me to hear of his struggle with Alzheimer’s.
But I am thankful that he had a gift he could share with so many generations.
Rest in peace, Glen. God has his guitar-player now.

Monday on The JJ McCartney Show

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Today on The JJ McCartney Show:

Join JJ LIVE at Noon ET as we limp our way through with a website that is most definitely under construction. But that’s better than nothing!

  • In the headlines today, more defiant, charged rhetoric from Kim Jong Un, threatening to attack the United States, and refusing to negotiate. What will the Trump reaction be?
  • Also in the news, Benjamen Netanyahu is rejecting charges of bribery and other accusations as completely false.  We’ll have the latest.
  • Ancient evidence of the biblical account of Creation? We’ll fil;l in the gaps.
  • An exclusive from WND.com: A pro-Israel American evangelical activist has some harsh words for Christian leaders who sided with Islamists in the ongoing dispute over security concerns on the Temple Mount – claiming they “promote heresy.” JJ will share the story in hour 2.
  • And just days after once again making the point that those who are leaking classified information from within the White House or the federal government are committing prosecutable felonies, Attorney General Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Friday announced a joint effort to track down and prosecute those who have leaked classified information, including private phone calls between President Trump and other world leaders.

Plus we’ll take YOUR phone calls too!
