Okay. Back in my introduction in my first post I mentioned Radio Odyssey. Well I'm going to tell you more about it. We are a Family friendly free-form Internet Radio station. Internet Radio was previously in crisis and that was stunting our growth but now that that danger has passed we are getting things back in gear.
On Monday nights, DJ "Hammerin" Hank Edwards spins on the Monday Night Record Hop from 8-11 PM Eastern (5-8 PM Pacific). From the 50's-80's and beyond Hank's got a tune just for you!
Tuesday nights Big Rob is in 'Da House! From 8PM-Midnight Eastern (5-9 PM Pacific) Big Rob presents his musical mix. He's a big Disney fan like I am and he's got a nice collection of Disney Park audio to share among other cool goodies.
Friday Night's brings the Friday Night Block Party. It's a musical party from 9 PM-Midnight Eastern (6-9 PM Pacific) featuring the members of the Radio Odyssey Good Guys spinning songs and having lots of fun. Currently I can be found here until my PC gets an overhaul that will allow me to broadcast on my own.
Travel back to the good 'ole days of DooWop and Vocal Group Harmony on Saturday nights from 7-10 PM Eastern (4-7 PM Pacific). Step onside Cool Bobby B's Doo Wop Stop for the awesome sounds of the 50's and early 60's (along with some newer cuts from the present day).
On Sundays from 9 AM-8 PM Eastern (6 AM-5 PM Pacific) we present our Christian programming featuring Gospel music and broadcasts of church services.
At 8 PM Eastern (5 PM Pacific) Dave the Swinger presents our Old Time Radio block. at 8 we head back to the days of the Wild West with Gunsmoke. Next up at 8:30 is the thrilling drama of Dragnet. Last but not least at 9 PM is the fun and hilarity of the Jack Benny Show!
That is our current broadcast lineup. We will be adding to it very soon so stay tuned. While you do visit us at Radio Odyssey don't forget to check out our IRC chat room and join us during live broadcasts for some fun. I promise we won't bite!

Yep we are almost 5 months away from Christmas - Boy this year has just flown by! Yesterday I introduced you to the Firehouse Five Plus Two. Today we will see them again, but in Christmas mode. The gang takes a break from animating Alice In Wonderland for some sounds of the season! Whoever is sharing this found it on a episode of the Disneyland/Walt Disney Presents/Wonderful World of Color etc anthology series. Enjoy!

Walt Disney's animators were some of the best in the business. But not only could they draw well, they could play some mean Dixieland! Meet the Firehouse Five Plus Two! Animator Ward Kimball and others that worked at the Walt Disney Studios got together and formed a Dixeland Jazz band back in the 1940's. You can find out more about this famous outfit here. They recorded several record albums through the 60's. Though you are probably more familiar with them than you realized. They were not too proud to animate themselves into a Goofy cartoon.
I present to you for your viewing pleasure today a gem I found on Youtube. I certainly wasn't living when this aired originally but I remember seeing it when the original Mickey Mouse Club ran during the early and much better (In my honest opinion) days of the Disney Channel. The Firehouse Five Plus Two visit the Mousketeers!
While we're talking about the Mickey Mouse Club there's one more website I want you to visit. It's a must read for all fans of Disney and the original Mickey Mouse Club. Go check out Mousketeer Lonnie Burr's personal webpage (you saw him in the vid above). Lonnie's site is very well done and well recommended. While there you can see some really neat pictures and read about Lonnie's experiences as a Mousketeer and everything else he's done in showbiz before and since. Tell him BD Bopper sent ya on the Roll Call page!
Oh and any link to or an actualy Youtube video posted here is something I have found while perusing that site. I don't have the ability or know-how to upload a video to the Net. I'm just sharing the goodies I am finding myself during a search.
See ya real soon!
Hello there! My name is Brian Donegan. You can call me Brian, BD, BD Bopper, or whatever you like (just not late for dinner LOL). I am 24 years old and I live in Lawrenceville, Georgia (just outside of Atlanta). I am legally blind, have blues eyes, and have blond hair. I love music, sports, cartoons. I am a Disney fanatic, a radio enthusiast, and I am an avid follower of politics. I am involved with an Family oriented Free-form Internet Radio station, called Radio Odyssey (I am part of the air staff and as PR director).
On the political side I am a Libertarian-leaning Conservative. I side with the GOP on most foreign policy but very little else. I am a Christian, and proud of it but I don't believe we need anyone else being a guide and enforcing ethics. We have the Bible for that! You may not believe what I believe but who am I to tell you how to live your life.
Musically, I am a big fan of Doo, Rockabilly, and Rhythm & Blues from the first generation of the Rock N' Roll era. I also enjoy Country, Blues, Roots, Swing, Jazz, and clean musical comdedy (like Spike Jones & The City Slickers).
Those are many things this blog is going to be about. It all depends on what is on my mind on a given day. I am not going to hesitate to tell you what I like and dislike. I hope that you find it interesting. BTW if you're wondering what the significance of my blog name Oh Baby That's What I Like is the last words of the song "Chantilly Lace" by The Big Bopper from 1958 (The Post title is the first words from that same song).
