On this amazing episode of the Q, its Christmas time and Mark/Bobby love nothing more than to give the gift of audio gold....they succeeded this week! Mark and Producer Bobby welcomed living comic book superhero BOLT BRADY (Professional Wrestler) on the show and he brought along his friend JORDYNNE GRACE (also a Pro-Wrestler). Brady, Grace, Bobby and Mark get into a discussion of their wrestling backgrounds and that turns into a discussion about Austin, TX and what life is like growing up in that part of the country.
Then it is on to a game of GAME ON/GAME OFF where each week Mark, Bobby and the guests discuss things that are potentially unknown to the populace and they try to inform and let you know what to be on the look out for, or something that they feel is important to tell you. And in this case JORDYNNE nails it from downtown. The boys try to match up with their picks, but unfortunately, Ms. Grace pulls the trigger and lets the honesty fly....especially in the GAME OFF!
After a amazing visit with those two, Mark and Bobby switch gears to discuss the conspiracy theories that surround the 1 yr anniversary of the Sandy Hook shootings. Unbeknownst to Mark, Bobby is one of the theorist and he sits back to listen and discuss the value of a conspiracy theory and whether they are relevant. Finally, Mark is unhappy with the year end album lists from all the big music players and thinks he has it better (don't they all). He breaks down the Top 10 albums of 2013...find out if your is on the list! Plus a little OVERTIME after the credits roll on the show.

Its Christmas time and in a rare change of events, the one with the rant is Producer Bobby! Although he loves his family and the people around him, he is a little jaded with what is the attitude he deals with from others during the joyous season. We will let Bobby explain it himself on the show.
But before any of that, a listen calls into the show to discuss the plan for Boeing to potentially bring their 777 line to the St. Louis area. It could mean big jobs and long term plans for the company in Missouri, but the listener doesn't see it that way. Listen to find out why he thinks it will be the worst move for the area.
Of course during the Boeing discussion the guys find out that the listener is a avid sports and baseball fan. This perks up the ears of Mark who decides to chime in on his mild opinion of certain players and athletes within the St. Louis Cardinals and around the league. Its obvious Mark excels at Pro-Wrestling and MMA talk , but its always interesting to hear his invaluable (and wrong) opinions of other sports.
And finally Mark finds out that the POPE is Time Magazines MAN OF THE YEAR. Once finding that out, he wants to know who also made the list and if the past years made sense in hindsight. Find out who some of the more prolific people were and where they landed on the charts in Mark and Bobby's opinion.
Also on the card is SELFIE-GATE with Obama, the return of BNN with Producer Bobby, another round of GAME ON/GAME OFF and OVERTIME (for the online listeners)

On this episode of The Q, Justin Deming re-appears to bring his liberal views to the front and center of current events....yet everyone get cut off!Mike Barsel's the general manager of 1420 WINI calls into the Q to explain to Mark that he would like to bring him to his knees in a race for the (clears throat) "Patriot Cup". Mike challenges Mark to come down to DuQuoin, IL for a race to find out who is the better "Merican" in what Mike (and many midwestern's) calls GODS COUNTRY. Well Mark accepts the challenge and puts it out there that he will be in Duquoin, IL on DEC. 17th (2013) for the rollerskating race, and then leaves Mike and the good conservatives of Middle America with some choice words.
Then its on like Donkey Kong....The guys discuss this issue with drug testing for Welfare recipients. Where as Mark is moderate and doesn't mind, Justin is hardcore against it. Mark puts the words to Justin and the discussion becomes quite enthralling. But that is just the start as Mark brings up Jingoism and Imperialism and how today's conservatives tend to ring the bell for those ideals without fully understanding the value of what they are saying and how they will accomplish that.
Finally its time for a dose of reality and the guys get into the new GAME ON/GAME OFF for the week. Will Producer Bobby come through like recent with a flub on the Game Off, or will he change his ways and bring around an amazing example for a Game Off. Take a listen and find out. Plus Mark and Justin have some seriously interesting choices for this weeks game. All this and you get some extra in the OVERTIME right after the end of the show.
Oh the holidays are on us for 2013 and its time for us to start getting together and eating. Well nothing makes you feel more holiday oriented than desserts...and especially PIES! Well Mark has the top ten holiday pies of all time and he, along with Tony Kozina and Matt Krueger (and of course Producer Bobby) are going to break down the list and man does it get a little heated!
Also, with two special guests you know that Mark is gonna talk some politics and without fail him and Matt start into each other. Mark discusses the in ability of certain members of society to handle themselves in the new world of social media since they keep taking things and putting them on the internet. Case in point is this weeks "round table rant" as the men discuss the waitress in NY/NJ that lied about a couple not tipping her and leaving a note. How much more often is this happening and what should be our stance as a society is discussed. Plus the USA is not the most powerful nation anymore and Mark tries explaining to Matt how we should not try and force our will upon on other nations that don't respect or care about us anyway.
Finally there is a few more stories, Letters from the Listeners and GAME ON/GAME OFF (a new section of the show that is catching a lot of ears). So tune in and enjoy all the fun plus some extra OVERTIME after the main show where MATT and TONY play Dr. Love's (2 for the price of 1).
