Race relations are huge topic on the minds of everyone in the US during these two volatile weeks in Ferguson, MO after the shooting death of a young man by a police officer. But that's where all the other media outlets stop and The Q starts.
After watching hours of Town Hall meetings and Black/White race relations programming on news channels throughout the country trying to capitalize on the popularity of a sad story....Mark Bland has decided that ENOUGH WEAK DISCUSSIONS IS ENOUGH. The world is not going to get anywhere until the people can be blatantly honest with each other when discussing the topic of black/white relations in the US since Civil Rights. So he put a call into two of his friends to come on the show and discuss not only race relations, but to also take up the flag of defense for 2 hours and defend the black culture. First Mark is joined by Corey "Slo-Down" Edwards a former member famed music group The St. Lunatics. Coming from the rough streets of Wellston,MO to touring the world and eating the best foods available, Corey has done it all and seen what its like to be pushed around and then have those same people want your autograph.
Next Mark is joined by Darryl Frierson, the host of Straight Outta Lo Cash and a civil activist. When it comes to discussing Black and White opinions, Mark and Darryl have gone round and round on both his show and The Q discussing these things. Darryl is extremely opinionated and has spent a majority of the time, as well as Slo-Down, down in the Ferguson area during the protests of the past few weeks.
This show is NOT AN EASY LISTEN. Parental Discretion is advised. There are very adult oriented subjects on this show and no punches are pulled. These men are here to discuss on behalf their cultures the true crux of the issue between the two races. Prejudices are on the surface and the discussion is very deep and pointed. Please do not go into this show lightly.

On this Episode of the Q, Peter Van Lunen of STL E-Z Ticket joins the boys to discuss what he's been up to and how things have changed since the last appearance on the program in 2011.
First up is Mark's undying hatred for the stupidity of most conservative voters in the USA. Mark decides that he will take his anger out on the PBS TV show Caillou. But, no, truthfully Mark turns his attention to Local ST. LOUIS radio hosts that have decided to talk about politics without having a clue what they are talking about. Much less that, they don't even know the names of the world leaders as they crap all over the President of the United States and promote how awesome they think Putin is in comparison to Obama. Dan tries to interject and explain that these men are right to have the feelings they have and that turns into DAN WALSH vs. MARK BLAND live on the show.
Next Bobby is unhappy with the way people treat St. Louis, and he decides to let the people of the Gateway to the West have a piece of his mind! Then the guys switch gears and get into talking about moral dilemmas. They are those situations you are put into in life where you have to choose between two extremely difficult decisions that are predicated on your morals and ideals. And Mark brought in some doozies for the show. In fact the first one is so heavy that PRODUCER BOBBY will probably be at odds with his wife for many years, since Bobby threw her under the bus. Listen and watch a marriage implode in one sentence.
Finally the guys do a little GAME ON/GAME OFF on the live show and Bobby brings in a homerun for his game on. And we finish off strong with some OVERTIME and a new HATE MAIL you have to hear to believe. All this and much more on the Q!

HE'S BACKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! Mark's former MMA co-host and always controversial individual Andy Echele jumps in for Justin and fireworks eventually ensue. First off the guys make a run to the sports side of the world to catch up with the CBG (cracker behind the glass) Robb Davis to discuss Alabama winning the BCS Championship game, Hockey making its triumphant return (blah!) and the snubbing of great Baseball players in regards to the Hall of Fame 2013. Then Mark and Andy jump into their old forms to talk a little MMA and the current status of it in 2013, mind you Andy ain't having it DANA WHITE. After all that settles, Andy and Mark graciously discuss the Pussification of the USA via gun laws and everything that Andy can find to throw at the idea. Also the two gents break down some listener emails where a question regarding weird or horrifying happenings from the past jogs Andy's memory on a very graphic situation a "cop friend" once told him about. Its a story to not be missed.
So all that and much more awaits you on the next episode of THE Q....Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
On this episode of The Q, Mark and Justin are joined by rival radio political host Tony Katz of rival St. Louis radio station 97.1 FM. Tony is a self proclaimed member of the Tea Party. A sensationalist to the extreme, it doesn't take long before the cats out the bag and Justin is verbally going TOE to TOE with Mr. Katz . So was there any common ground to be had? Listen in and find out!
In the second half of the show, Mark decides to take some Listener Emails, but that doesn't last long before him and riled up Justin start to discuss the virtues of being Homosexual and whether or not they are a bigger burden to themselves than they should be.
Its definitely a show to not miss and once again THE Q proves to be the only stomping ground where and ANY and ALL individuals (regardless of politics) can come to square up and throw down on the topics that influence our country! Real Radio, Real Honest.....its THE Q!
On this episode of the Q, Mark has been trying for 2 years to get anyone from Breitbart.com on his show to talk politics. Well finally, one of them (and at this point, still the only one) decided to grace the Q listners with their style...That man is KURT SCHLICHTER. Mr. Schlichter is a noted contributor to the conservative think tank called Breitbart.com and Townhall.com. He is also a soon to be three time author and 2 time #1 Amazon.com best seller. And this show doesn't disappoint. Mark, Justin and Kurt go back and forth on many subjects. But did our guys get Mr. Schlichter to say that he took something in a moderate stance (GASP!). You'll have to listen to find out. And by the way....HE'S NOT REASONABLE!
Also, Robb Davis jumps on the show to talk about sports including Manny Pacquiao, the Dodgers and much more. All this for the low low price of FREE! It's the Q, Real Radio...Real Honest!
