It’s beginning to look a lot like. . . the end of the year, and Rusty hits another milestone this week with show #75. My first guest is Kosair Charities Chairman of the Board Jerry Ward, who is responsible for many good things going on that benefit children in our city. I happened to meet with Jerry the afternoon that we learned of the passing of Sam Swope, who did so much in his lifetime for Kosair.

Tom Kapfhammer had little choice but to enter the family business — he grew up busing tables at Buckhead’s. And despite earning a degree in Sports Communications from Indiana University, and working for the Louisville Bats, Tom chose to help grow the local restaurants. He shard a Christmas Ale with me on Wednesday afternoon overlooking the Louisville skyline.

I had several interesting news stories to talk about this week — the first being the good news that we, the taxpayers, won’t be providing financial incentives for a religious-oriented theme park. The tribunal for ex-Male High School principal David Mike is proving how difficult it is to fire someone at JCPS. And the University of Louisville is carefully considering a $6 million donation from the Koch Brothers and John Schnatter to make sure there aren’t strings attached that would affect instruction. U of L and WKU got bowl game invitations. And there’s plenty more on the 75th Rusty Satellite Show.

The Crunch Zone 62 – Domers, Cats, Bowl Games, and being #4

thecardMike and Mark Share stories from the sidelines of Notre Dame, Kentucky, discuss what happened on Bowl Selection Sunday and finish up with the 4th ranked basketball team.  The guys get back on track in a big way this week.

Rusty checked out a new retail shop in the Highlands this week, and met the very eclectic and interesting proprietor, MaLynda Poulsen. Her shop is open during Bardstown Road A-Glow on Saturday, and has a special charity that’s going to benefit. Find out why she chose Louisville over all the other places she could have moved to from Boise. I hope you get to make it down there Saturday.

Longtime Louisvillians like me remember Denny Crum’s awesome teams in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and it’s nice to see the Coach is a winner in retirement as well. Coach Crum has an office at the University Club and is a great ambassador for the University, while spending plenty of time on charitable work and, of course, fishing. Hear wheat he has to say about the unfortunate end of the Joe B. and Denny Show, a staple on AM radio for a decade.

In the news, a report from the 55,000 Degrees organization includes some troubling numbers, and I’m not surprised based on conversations I’ve had recently. It’s not good to have racist attitudes, and it’s even worse to put them on display through social media. A Norton Healthcare worker found that out this week and lost her job. I got to talk with some state legislators about their priorities for the January session. And Rusty Satellite alumni Coyote Calhoun, Steve Wiser and Anthony Lamas were in the news, in a good way. It’s all in the 74th episode of The Rusty Satellite Show.

Crunch Zone 61 – The Notre Dame Game

domerMike & Mark talk Louisville’s first ever meeting with NOTRE DAME.  A game in which TheCrunchZone staff is sending 3 to cover the historic game from all angles.  They touch on the basketball teams 2-0 start – and who the Cards can count on to be contributors off the bench this season.
