# 007 - June 6, 2011 A.T. (After Tressel) - DJBC Classic


59:50 minutes (54.78 MB)

Complete with a new intro and outro, this re-packaged DJBC Classic takes us to yet another Early Classic, Show # 7, first aired on June 6, 2011 (hence the first part of the title). The A.T. part was in nod that it was the first show since the "resignation*" of Jim Tressel from the B*ckeyes Football Team one week prior on Memorial Day 2011, capping off the Tattoogate Scandal at THE Ohio. The day after this show originally aired, then-B*ckeyes Quarterback (and the real star of Tattoogate) Terrelle Pryor was declared ineligible by the NCAA, and then obviously flatulated in the NFL as a Wide Receiver after a failed stint as a 3rd String Quarterback in the NFL.

In this show, we poke fun at the Scandal with these two sketches:
- A Cold Open Sketch with Barack Obama who announces the departure of Tressel from THE Ohio.
- Taylor Swift on "The Dating Game" with Terrelle Pryor (as Bachelor # 2). Coincidentally, Swift had a concert in Columbus that week, hence that sketch.

Also in the Show:
- The Daytime Emmys Preview (the last one with "As the World Turns" - RIP)
- The (edited) Weekend Warrior (ya know, that Intro and Outro were gonna come at a hefty price tag)

A lot has changed in the decade and 370-plus shows since that show first aired, and it's always great to go back at the infancy of this show on WCRS.

# 377 - Back in Full Swing '21


1:00:42 minutes (55.58 MB)

As more and more people get vaccinated, the goal is to return back to full swing with life. Tonight on the show, there is still hope we can all get back into the swing of things.

Also, the NFL Draft - where your favorite B*ckeyes and Wolverines will be playing on Sundays this Fall. Plus, the latest Wolverine to defect to the NBA Draft, and the latest Wolverine pick-up from the Transfer Portal in Hoops.
