Brothers and sisters, we all know there’s nothing God hates more than good sex, and nothing that pleases Him more than a public school health instructor who teaches abstinence. Today on our show, we’re blessed to have Bob Jenkins, who’s just published a book, “For God’s Sake, Don’t Have Sex.” Bob, welcome to the program…

My own sex education was covered formally and awkwardly in eighth grade, then entirely corrupted by Christians a few years later. I was seduced at 17 by a college-aged youth group leader, and cast away from the group by another leader who was sleeping with one of my friends.

I was thinking about songs people choose for their weddings. Have you noticed how inappropriate some of these are? (Yes, I realize I’m not one to talk.) I went to DJ web sites and looked at “top wedding picks.” The same dumb songs turned up again and again. As Mandy Patinkin’s Inigo Montoya said in The Princess Bride, “I don’t think it means what you think it means.”

On July 28, 2013, Bruce Springsteen performed in Kilkenny, Ireland. During the song Dancing in the Dark, he invited a young boy on stage to play guitar with him. Afterward, he surprised the boy by letting him keep the guitar. Fans everywhere rejoiced in the generosity of their hero, but like many stories, this one has a dark side…

Another movie you should see except it’s pretty boring is Still Alice, which is very realistic and exactly what happened when my uncle had alzeimers disease, which makes you forget things and people except things that happened to you a long time ago. Sometimes we need to see movies like this to understand things that other people go through in their lives. If you don’t want to see it which I totally understand maybe you can see a different movie but just go a little early and sneak in to see part of Still Alice, which is what I did. I think that is still o.k. because it’s not like the movie is selling out or anything.

Paul Osterman…suggested that I listen to an old radio piece by Stan Freeberg, called Elderly Man River. I did, and I wrote this modified version to perform with my friend Richard Enders. He was kind enough to come re-record it for our podcast. Paul wasn’t available, so Irena Lingley sat in on piano.
