On this epsiode of The Q, Mark Bland and Producer Bobby breakdown a story from Oregon about police officers taking down a hardened criminal that is NINE YEARS OLD. Evidently having a scuffle on the playground at 9 is too much for some to deal with and they need to take it to the next level.
Also, Mark and Bobby got some great feedback regarding doing letters from the listeners on the show last time, so they dive into another batch including stories about: Mothers getting alcohol as a Mothers Day gift and whether that is appropriate; What if you best friend saw a private "sexy" picture of your new boy/girlfriend, would you be hesitant to introduce them to your BFF? That and many others on the show this week.
Next Bobby had a serious pile on situation with Facebook regarding a Sandy Hook story. He started to get attcked perosnally for having an opinion that was different than the maority in the discussion and was chastized for that. We discuss the story, the reactions and the reasons for and against Bobby's opinion and why it was such big deal.
Finally we have a little talk about how Russia is deciding to kill off the value of the American Dollar in their trading which potentially could send the US and other nations into a state of hyper inflation if they get enough outside support for such a move. We talk as a nation about "not caring abotu them" and that we are "the best country in the world"....so what happens when everyone stops thinking that and de-values your money internationally to the point that companies in your own coutnry have to overcharge for eveything to keep up? We discuss in depth.
All this and GAME ON/GAME OFF finally returning for the first time in a few weeks. Taking talk radio and turning it to 11....this is THE Q!

Another week and another great episode of the Q is here for the pleasure of the world. And this weeks guest is no slouch when it comes to radio, being a former on air talent with the DC and the Family morning show...so welcome Jesse Barban.
This weeks show starts up on a down note with the news of WWE Ultimate Warrior, who was recently inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame, passing away in a very weird and unseen fashion. The guys discuss the history of the Ultimate Warrior. How he was influential to their careers in wrestling (Mark and Dan Walsh) and how eerie the final speech he gave on Monday Night Raw was in regards to the timing of his death.
Next the guys jump in and discuss the history of Jesse and his work in radio. Jesse worked with DC and the Family as an on air talent and has since taken a position with Apple. Jesse lets everyone know that his history with DC and radio date back to an old Steve and DC Halloween show where some land that his family owns was used for the show that year. This brings up a early part in Mark's career and how he was involved with the said radio show the night it emulated from the McPike Mansion in Alton, IL.
From there the men go down two separate paths. Mark received a letter from a listener complaining about the economic recovery and how long it has taken. Mark and Dan Walsh tear into the listener for being overly focused on the wrong things and how they play no part in the recovery in 2014. Next they discuss the decision of a foreign man to get a McDonald's receipt tattooed on his arm and whether this is a good/bad thing. Plus Bobby makes HUGE GUEST announcement for the next show.
Finally some GAME/GAME OFF and of course OVERTIME* that comes on after the show goes off the air. This is what you been waiting for...another episode of the Q!
