2011 has been a banner year for stupid news. It just seems that people given a choice in life will do the dumbest and often times the funniest things imaginable – some cannot even be imagined. But don’t worry. Wacky News will be there to find and share their 15 minutes of fame with our listeners.

In tribute to those whose efforts at creating dumb, stupid or funny moments have gone largely unnoticed in 2011, their actions will be honored in our two-part end-of-the-year, look-back look at all those wonderful and wacky events that lend humor to the human existence.

We will honor the flashing chief of police whose tireless efforts to leave his naked photos on jogging trails put him in the local news. We will also tell the tale of the man who went shooting on his land and killed two cannabis thieves by mistake. There are so many stories, so many really stupid people and so little time.

For those old enough to remember the award winning show from 1962 and 1963, That Was The Week That Was (TW3),Wacky News will bring back pleasant memories. It is Saturday Night Live meets 60 Minutes. It is the prodigy of The Washington Post mating with the National Inquirer.

This week’s guest will be TV and film producer, Arlene Sidaris, who will share with our listeners her recollections of long-time friend, Dandy Don Meredith and her late husband, the legendary Emmy Award Winner, Andy Sidaris.

For those who are not sports fans, Andy Sidaris created most of the techniques used in broadcasting college and pro football games serving as one the sports first directors and innovators. Andy directed the first decade of Monday Night Football and left the booth to produce films with Arlene.

Arlene has enjoyed a wildly successful career producing 44 episodes of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, The Missiles of October and at least a dozen other films available on DVD.

The movies all feature, guns, beautiful women and beaches like Malibu California. There are few things more important to men than guns, football, women and a good “brewski”. This is a chance for men to enjoy all of them at the same time.

Arlene will regale our listeners with stories of all of those favorite male pastimes. So, pull up a chair in front of your computer and listen in. You may find a DVD you may want to see. Or a story you want to retell at the next football party.

We promise not to disappoint.

I do hope that you join Mannie Barling, Ashley F. Brooks and our special guest Arlene Sidaris tomorrow at 1pm Pacific, 4pm Eastern. To listen in just click here.
