Welcome to Thursday and Podcast #213! With the 30th Annual Salvation Army Radiothon for the Bed & Bread Club just a week away, Jackie and I welcome Dale Johnson to the Purtan Family Dining Room Table. Dale's been my right-hand man for the Big Event for three decades! We give you all the details... and touch on a few other topics as well, including how Garbage Day has helped keep me on track during my "retirement", and how Jackie's 15 year old son Charlie has made it 6 months into High School without ever going to his locker. 

Now just in case you don't have time to listen to the Podcast right now... here are some crib notes on the 16-Hour Radiothon: 

* Friday, February 24th 

* Broadcast LIVE on 760 WJR AM from 6am to 10pm from the Emagine Theater in Royal Oak

* I'll be hosting the 6pm to 10pm slot along with Big Al, Jackie & all of "Purtan's People"

* The Radiothon raises money for the Bed & Bread Club which feeds THOUSANDS of men, women and children in Metro Detroit EVERY DAY, 365 DAYS A YEAR. 

* You can even donate NOW by calling 248-528-0760 or by going to salmich.org or wjr.com 

As you know, The Bed & Bread program is near and dear to my heart... and anything you can afford to give will be greatly appreciated! 

Have a great day and I'll see you back here tomorrow!
