COLUMBUS. “The DJBC Happy Hour” will offer a plethora of themed-shows during the spring and summer months of 2012, including a Musical Salute to 1976, a road trip across Columbus, the One-Year Anniversary show, and the 12th Annual Bryan Awards.

April will begin with an April Fools themed show on April 2, which will be full of comedic surprises, and a recap of the 32nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards. April 9 will be a week of rest due to Easter and to allow more time to work on the two-part One-Year Anniversary Show, set to air on April 16 and 23, which is still under wraps. April 30 will also be an off-week for the show.

The month of May will begin with a two-part musical salute to America’s Bicentennial Year, 1976.

“I want to do a lot of special-themed shows as part of the city of Columbus’ Bicentennial Year,” said show host and executive producer Bryan Curtiss. “Since America’s Bicentennial Year was 1976, I wanted to do a theme of songs from that year, as a kind-of Bicentennial homage.”

Part 1 of that Bicentennial Musical array will air on May 7 and Part 2 on May 14.

The May 21 show, which will also be repeated the following week, Memorial Day, will be a preview of some of the upcoming Summer events, including the 51st Annual Greater Columbus Arts Festival, the Asian Festival, and other city and community events in the early part of summer.

June will be busting out with another birthday-themed show on June 11, and an encore of last year’s birthday-themed show on June 4. The June 18 show will preview more Summer events including the 40th Anniversary of ComFest, tours in German Village and Olde Towne East, and other events.

July will feature a lot of returning regular themes. The July 2 show will be a tribute to America, for the country’s 236th birthday. The July 23 show will recap the nominations to the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (on July 19) and Curtiss’s “Worst of Television” honors the Silver Garbage Awards (nominations announced July 18). The July 9 show will be a unique show on its own as Curtiss will reveal the nominations to his very own “Best of Television” honors, the Bryan Awards LIVE, in 15 main categories.

August will begin with a road trip across Columbus, as one of the Bicentennial-themed shows of 2012 on August 6.

The August 13 show will feature a music-themed tribute to 1980s television, with television shows from the 1980s as the theme of that week, as the last original show before the Bryan Awards.

The Bryan Awards will be handed out on August 26, but will air over a three-week period, beginning on August 27, and ending September 10. Specific details about this three-part show are being kept under wraps until the nomination date gets closer. On September 17, the show will put on The Silver Garbage Awards, honoring the worst of the offerings on the small screen during the 2011-12 Television Season.
