# 407 - 50 Years of Grease Lightning


1:00:00 minutes (53.01 MB)

We are going back to school and the carefree days of the 1950s to Rydell High School, for this Grease-themed show.

Tonight on the show, we celebrate 50 years of Grease, which debuted OFF-Broadway on February 14, 1972, and was the first Off-Broadway musical to be done under Broadway Contracts. The show moved to Broadway in June 1972, and was on Broadway for eight years and 3,380 shows, becoming the longest-running musical (at least for awhile). The show, written by Jim Jacobs & Warren Casey, debuted in Chicago in 1971, and was based off their high school experiences in the 1950s. The musical was part of the 1950s revival of the 1970s, which saw the likes of American Graffiti, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, M*A*S*H, Sha Na Na, and...

Grease the film was released on June 16, 1978, and was the highest-grossing musical film for over 30 years, and the # 2 Best-Selling Album of 1978 (and the # 2 Best-Selling Album from a John Travolta movie, as well). Some songs from the original musical ("Alma Mater", "It's Raining on Prom Night", and "All Choked Up") were replaced in the film by songs that we all know and love ("Grease", "Hopelessly Devoted To You", and "You're the One That I Want"). "Hopelessly Devoted to You" scored the film's only Oscar nomination, and "You're The One That I Want" was # 1 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the Summer of 1978.

The 2007 Reality Competition Program, "Grease: You're The One That I Want" was a reality casting call for the title roles in the 2007 Broadway Revival, that was re-tooled from the 1978 film. The 2017 LIVE Musical Special on FOX was also re-tooled from the '78 film as well.

In this hour, you'll hear songs from both the Soundtrack of the 1972 Broadway Cast Musical and 1978 Blockbuster Film.

# 402 - The DJBC "We Beat Ohio" Happy Hour (FULL Show)


1:59:58 minutes (109.85 MB)

Tonight is a night to celebrate. For the first time in ten years, the Michigan Wolverines beat their hated rivals, That Ohio School, 42-27 on November 27, 2011, behind FIVE Hassan Haskins touchdowns, and 3,654 days worth of steam. Then one week later, Michigan won their first Big Ten Championship in 17 years with a 42-3 demolition of Iowa. And for the first time ever, the Wolverines are in the College Football Playoff, being the ONLY school to make the NCAA Final Four in Men's Basketball, Baseball, Football, and Ice Hockey (the four major sports) in the last four years.

College Football Playoff:
# 1 Alabama (12-1) vs. # 4 Cincinnati (13-0) - Cotton Bowl; 3:30PM on 12/31 in Arlington, TX
# 2 Michigan (12-1) vs. # 3 Georgia (12-1) - Orange Bowl; 7:30PM on 12/31 in Miami Gardens, FL

National Championship:
Alabama/Cincinnati vs. Michigan/Georgia - January 10, 2022

Rose Bowl:
Ohio B*ckeyes vs. Utah Utes

The Weekend Warrior skims through events around town, including the return of a Columbus Holiday Staple - The Nutcracker (Ballet Met's The Nutcracker, to be exact).

And Hour # 2 is a bunch of celebratory and upbeat music slapped together, to troll B*ckeye fans, who will lose to Utah in the Rose Bowl on January 1st.

# 401 - What Are YOU Doing To Beat Ohio State This Saturday?


59:46 minutes (54.72 MB)

Tonight on the Show, it's back, THE Game is back, between the # 2 Ohio B*ckeyes (10-1, 8-0) and the # 5 Michigan Wolverines (10-1, 7-1) in Ann Arbor. BOTH the FOX Big Noon Kickoff and ESPN's College GameDay will be LIVE from Ann Arbor on Saturday. Could an upset take place? Maybe, but don't hold your breath. Ohio is an eight point favorite, coming off a 56-7 destruction of then # 7 Little Brother, ending the K-9 for Heisman Campaign. BOTH of the teams they lost to this season got blown out on Saturday (Oregon, who beat Ohio in Columbus on September 11, lost 38-7 to Utah on November 20).

With last year being the first time since 1917 that the Game did NOT take place, this marks the first time since 1903 that The Game is being held in Ann Arbor back-to-back meetings. A B*ckeye win would tie Michigan's 1901-09 streak for the most consecutive wins in Series history.

The winner of this game will win the Big Ten East, and represent the East in the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis on December 4th.

Storylines for The Game:
- Harbaugh: "We're Playing for ALL the Marbles."
- Harbaugh: "The Playoffs have begun."
- McNamara: "This is why you come to Michigan."
- Can Ojabo & Hutchinson stop Stroud?
- Will Stroud put the pedal to the medal like he did with Michigan State, and last place Indiana, Maryland, & Rutgers?
- Can the Secondary stop the BIG THREE (Olave, Wilson, and Smith-Njigba)?
- Will Corum be able to play?
- Can Haskins shred the Silver Bullets (hey, it worked for Oregon, and helped Minnesota and Nebraska stay in the game against Ohio)?
- Can Michigan "Biakabutuka" the B*ckeyes?
- Will Day put up 100, like he promised in 2020?
- If Michigan gets blown out, does Harbaugh get fired?

Plus, it's Thanksgiving Week!
