Just two guys talking about the good ol’ days, life and what’s it’s like getting older.

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 90

Another podcating milestone for the boys... Episode 90! Thanks for all your support. We're looking forward to some kind of party for the Big #100.

Speaking of milestones, BJ had a birthday in the past week. On the show, he talks about some life (and living) goals. Now he's aiming to live to be 75...but we know he's gonna be around for a lot longer than that! So of course the talk of living to "advanced" age led to more conversation about getting old, doctor visits, and upchucking in the car. Trust us, you've got to listen to find out the details for this one...

BJ stuns Bill with some football news: The Jacksonville Jaguars moving to Orlando? Well, turns out, no. But if the Jags do some major renovations (as planned) on the stadium in Jax, they're gonna need somewhere else to play during contruction. Turns out they're considering Camping World Stadium in Orlando... OR... the Florida Gators Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainvesville. NOW Bill was excited! 

Thanks again for tuning in. As always, the boys appreciate your top-rated review of the podcast on whatever platform you do your listening. Thanks in advance!

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 89

This week, the boys talk about BJ's latest doc appointment - so what else is new, right? But it does lead to a good discussion of how we either support ourselves - or hurt our health - with the food we eat (or dont' eat, of course).

BJ continues to work on keeping his health in good condition, and Bill continues to work on losing a few pounds (OK, more than a few!), and there are good stories all around.

The other big question of the week: How far would you go to see Taylor Swift in concert? Shes currently playing in Paris (as of this podcast date), and news is that lots of Americans are flying to France to see the show there. Seems it's actually cheaper to get tickets in Europe! Swifties, get your passports ready. 

A little bit more on sports, and some interesting ideas on doing the podcast "live and on location," just like a live radio show back in the day. 

Also, keep an ear out for a new podcast called "Gut Punched," It's not about fighting at all. It's about how friends and family members deal with the newfound knowledge of a loved one being diagnosed with dementia and / or Alzhiemers'. A friend of BJ's is starting a new podcast on that topic, and BJ was a guest on one of the first episodes. The show "Gut Punched" is also a part of The Podcast Playground network.

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 88

What a fun show! Yes, we say that a lot, but this one turned into something special. We hope and trust you'll agree. 

A bit of sports catch-up first, as always. BJ's Warriors have been out of the NBA Playoffs for some time (he's bummed), and Bill's Cavaliers beat the Orlando Magic in seven exciting first-round games (he's thrilled). Some NBA, some Kentucky Derby as well...

Which led to a lot of BJ and Bill history (separately, in their very early radio-career days). Talking about back-woods and small-town KY radio for both of them.

Then, the sad news: BJ was unable to get to talk to Peter Noone when the former Herman's Hermits star appeared live at Epcot Center / Disney World last week. As you know, the boys have been pretty much stalking Noone (not, we hope, in a creepy way) to try to get him on the podcast. Still, no luck. But, it's some funny stuff from BJ's afternoon at the show.

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 87

BJ in the Radio Hall of Fame? Well, honestly, no... but the boys spend some time this week talking about the "what might have beens" in their careers, so that makes for some jokes. Other funnyy stuff... how a dad (BJ) gets a little fatherly revenge on his kids with the stories of their names. For BJ, it's one musical instrument, one car. Don't know what that means? Better tune in to find out. 

Also, BJ's ongoing quest to "try" to talk to music star Peter Noone. If you've been following the show (of course you have, right?!), you know Noone was a guest on the BJ and Bill Show many, many years ago. The boys have tried to contact him a few times to (hopefully) have him on the podcast, but they've been running into brick walls... Noone's agent, etc. Now BJ is seeing Noone perform live at Epcot Center / Disney World. What's going to happen? Stay tuned. 

Lots more fun stuff on the very early days of both guys' careers in radio. From BJ doing some storm-chasing in Indiana, to Bill doing street reporting in Phoenix. Definitely setting the WayBack Machine for this stuff...

As always, the boys appreciate your top-rated review of the podcast on whatever platform you do your listening. Thanks in advance!

Have a great week. We've had a few requests for info about previous guests, so...

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 76

No surprise here... a lot of football Big Game talk, analysis and more this week! And yes, there's plenty of time left to get in both BJ and Bill's opinions about the "Swiftie" thing. Is that a thing? How much do sports broadcasts "check in" on girlfriends, wives, and other significant others? Is it important? The boys have differing opinions, and aren't afraid to share them. 

Second (non-football) half of the show: Thoughts about the comedy business. BJ used to be a standup comic (among other things), and he's had thoughts about getting back up on stage. With that in mind, the boys talk about an upcoming guest for the show, a former standup (and actor) himself. Who is it? Check out the show to find out. More guest appearances are coming! 

After losing a Super Bowl bet, it's now on Bill to buy lunch, and there's talk of how and where that will happen. BJ tries to convince Bill on the goodness of cauliflower "chicken" wings. Have you tried them? Yay or nay? Seems Bill will be finding out...

Plant-based or not, BJ and Bill would definitely appreciate you whipping up a recipe of a good review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet. Also, the name of the show's Facebook page has been updated. Search for "BJandBillTHEPodcast" now. (Capital letters not needed.) 

See you next week!

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 75

It's the "Diamond Anniversary" episode of BJ and Bill - the Podcast! Seventy-five shows, all gems...hahaha.

On this week's show, a Big Game preview, of couse. The Taylor Swift vs. non-Swiftie battle bubbles over into a small wager between the boys. It's gonna be interesting, one way or another.

Would you like to go to the big game, if you could? We mean live and in person? Seems TV coverage of the biggest events - sports and others - has gotten so good in recent years, there's a good discussion to be had: Go live, or watch from the comfort of home, on the big screen? What's your choice? 

No matter where you spend the weekend, watching on TV or doing something out there in the "real world," BJ and Bill remind you that we'd really appreciate it if you would contribute your review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet. No big game ticket needed. Also, get in touch anytime: Email the show at: BJandBillPodcast@gmail.com, or simply search for "BJandBillPodcast" on Facebook.

See you next week, Swifties (and everyone else)...

So... did your favorite teams win? Are they headed to the Big Game? This week, BJ and Bill talk a little football, a little about famous girlfriends and a little wagering.. all about the games just past, and the final "Big" game coming up. Got a favorite? Let us know...

Also, there's talk about "cord cutting." For those that don't know, that's all about saving money by getting rid of cable TV, and sticking with just the streaming services you and yoru family actually watch. Maybe you've already cut the cord (cable). Maybe it's time to think about if you really need all those streaming services?! 

BJ and Bill also discuss the "modern" radio and TV business model. A lot has changed since the boys were on the radio "back in the day." The question these days seems to be: How long before AI (artificial intelligence) takes over the entire business? Or for that matter, how long before AI takes over the world. The boys think a good place for that takeover to start might be with politics. 

While us humans still matter, these two humans would very much appreciate it if you would contribute a human review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet. Do it now, before the robots take over! Also, get in touch anytime! Email the show at: BJandBillPodcast@gmail.com, or simply search for "BJandBillPodcast" on Facebook.

BJ and Bill The Podcast EP - 73

This week, it's Bill's turn to be a bit "under the weather." (What does that mean, exactly, anyway? Aren't we always under the sky and the weather? Weird...) Anyway, Bill talks recovery after some little bug found him, and BJ talks about his wife returning from a girl's trip to New Orleans...and he wonders what she'll bring home with her.

Also on the show: Dating in one's "senior" years. BJ talks about catching up with an old friend, and talking divorce, dating and that whole "new chapter of life" thing. 

Speaking of our senior years, there's also talk of a new "best of" list BJ has found for places to retire. Of course both the boys are living in a big retirement zone - the entire state of Florida - but neither BJ or Bill was prepared to hear what the number one in-the-nation place is for retirment... at least according to this list. See if you agree. The boys definitely did not. 

Don't forget - we'd really appreciate it if you could leave a good review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet. We very much appreciate it! Also, get in touch anytime! Email the show at: BJandBillPodcast@gmail.com, or simply search for "BJandBillPodcast" on Facebook.

For some, it's a short(er) work week. Some have a day off for the MLK Holiday... and if that's you, we hope you had some extra fun, and a bit of time for reflection. It's still a crazy world out there, and Dr. King's message is just as powerful today as when he spoke ot it.

For the show... BJ reports on how his wife is going on a ladies-only mini-vaca to New Orleans. We know she can be trusted, but how about BJ? Not so sure... Turns out he was actually invited to join the ladies on their getaway, but the boys discuss if that was a real, honest invitation, or if she was just "being nice." You decide (we already have... hahahaha). 

Also, there's talk of high-tech gadgets and gizmos as the annual Consumer Electronics Show is underway in Las Vegas. That leads to some Vegas memories for Bill, and the surprising factoid that BJ has never been there! 

Lots more about travel, small towns, and getting older. So what else is new? If you have a short week with the MLK holiday, enjoy it. No matter how long your week is, we'd suggest you enjoy it was well! When you have a spare moment (that's all it takes!) please remember to leave a good review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet. We very much appreciate it! Also, get in touch anytime!

Pretty sure there are no "spoiler alerts" in this episode... as BJ dives deep into the smash movie "Barbie." Yes, he went to see it...and kept his man-card. Along with that cinema classic, there's talk of other movies seen and not seen in the past few months. It's all part of a bigger disucssion from the recent Golden Globes awards, so check in for that. 

In addition, there's talk of taking good care of your health in the new year. Seems like just about everyone we know is sick these days, so be careful out there! BJ talks about his heart transplant a bit, and the support group that grows up around people who have had various body parts replaced. Interesting stuff. 

But, when it comes to actually important, hard-hitting reporting, be sure to listen in as the boys discuss the various fun and fast foods that have been replaced by "healthy" alternatives. Does making chicken wings out of cauliflower made them a health food? Hmmm... 

The new year is off and running... As we get back to the regular grind (whatever that means for you), please remember to start off the new year with the gift of a good review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet.

Happy New Year! Hope and trust yours was spent with the ones you love and care about. This week, BJ and Bill tackle some of the - dare we say? - "regular" topics of any New Year's show: Setting intentions and goals, and if those "resolutions" will stick as the year goes on.

BTW - If you are a listener to the podcast, and also work as a coach or trainer, BJ and Bill would be interested in hearing from you on this big "motivation" thing. What is it that motivates people to - as the cliche goes - "get stuff done." Check in on the Facebook page and let us know. Or maybe even get in touch for an interview! We'd love to hear from you.

Otherwise, there was talk this week on all kinds of family-related stuff. Taking care of sick kids, losing friends and family as the years go on, and more. Taking note of the passing years. Being grateful for having loved ones as time ticks on...

Again, we wish you nothing but the best for 2024!

The Post-Christmas Edition of the BJ and Bill Podcast! We hope and trust your Christmas holiday was everything you hoped it would be, no matter if that included family, friends, or some other quality time. The boys send you all the best this year, and we're looking ahead to the coming of 2024. Can it (hopefully) be a better year? 

This week, there's talk of what it was like to work on Christmas (and other holidays) in the radio business. "Back in the day" - before computers took over the world - BJ and Bill would actually show up at their radio stations to be on the air "live," even on the biggest holidays. That makes for some interesting stories.

Of course it's a holiday show, so there are going to be food-related stories. Plenty of those to go around this week... with leftovers to take home, of course. Bill is already talking about a New Year's Resolution to get to the gym more often to work off all those holiday-table treats. 

On to 2024! Let's all wish real hard for a better year. With that New Year coming, BJ and Bill wish you the very best. And as you enjoy your holidays, please remember to give the gift of a good review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet. We very much appreciate it! Also, get in touch anytime!

The Pre-Christmas Edition! Happy Holidays to you and your family, wherever you are and how-ever you celebrate. BJ and Bill wish you a happy holiday season...

This week, along with the Christmas celebration, more sports talk. It's been a crazy football season, and there's some fun stuff to talk about there, too.

Of course most of the episode is all about the holidays. Visiting friends and family, gift-giving (or not) and everything that comes with that. And by "with that," we're talking mostly about the food-related part of holiday celebrations. What's your go-to holiday meal favorite? Any special traditions? BJ talks about one of his... his wife's, actually. Credit where credit is due, after all. 

No matter how you celebrate, BJ and Bill wish you the very best. And as you enjoy your holidays, please remember to give the gift of a good review of the show at your favorite podcast outlet.

This week... More hard-hitting dating advice from BJ to Bill. If ever there was a good example of the "blind leading the blind," this is probably it. Check it out and let us know if you have anything to add or update in what BJ has to offer. 

Speaking of updates, we'll also be sharing Bill's experience with more advice from BJ... something much more useful and important, in this case: How to warm up leftover pizza! If you'll recall last week's show, BJ talked about the fry-pan method of warming up leftover slices. Did it work? You'll have to listen in to find out. 

Also, it seems there's a new competitor on the horizon for BJ and Bill's favorite roadside attraction, Buc-ee's. For now, it's only in the heart of the midwest, but for our listeners in that part of the country, we'd love to hear more about it.

This week... with the Christmas holidays racing up on us at warp speeds, the boys talk about the latest gifts and gift-giving. Every heard of "Squishmallows?" Well, Bill found out all about them on a trip this week to a local mall. Seems they're all the rage this year. Isn't there always something - some particular toy - that's super-popular every Christmas? Some marketing team is earning their annual bonuses this year, for sure.

As always, there's a bit of talk about football, and the college playoff setup. For BJ and Bill, there was a little concern that home-state school Florida State did not get included in the big post-season party... but hey, there's plenty of other good matchups coming to keep an eye on. 

All this, and BJ's latest favorite energy drink. All about staying in good shape, right?
