Star 99.9. Today’s Best Mix

Big Jim and Anna Show Cliff Notes: Monday, 7/28/14

Miss any of The Big Jim and Anna Show today?  You can catch up with the show with our Cliff Notes! The abbreviated version of what happened! 



The new season of "Family Guy" starts next month, and for the premiere they're doing a crossover episode with "The Simpsons".  They showed a five-minute preview this weekend at Comic-Con.  The Griffins end up by accident in Springfield, and start hanging out with the Simpsons.  Here's Homer and Peter getting friendly over a box of donuts.



So Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock might be the cutest thing in the world.  Remember when Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian a wall of white roses for Mother’s Day? Well, Brandon surprised new mama Kelly with ten acres of sunflowers on their land.  She said it’s her heaven. 


Aretha Franklin is super mad.  She was with Big Jim this weekend in Canada- She had a show near Niagara Falls and went to her favorite burger place, Johnny Rockets, she ordered her usual, a hamburger and a cherry coke to go- and then got in trouble for sitting down.  The waitress told her she had to leave with it because she ordered it for take out- So Aretha told her that she would switch and have it there- but the waitress told her it was too late because she already ordered.  Then she took it one step further and told her she had to wait in the food court not in the actual Johnny Rockets restaurant.  Aretha stormed out and her nephew told the waitress who she was and she responded that she didn’t care who she was.  Aretha called her "very rude, unprofessional and nasty."  Johnny Rockets says that the waitress was new and has been educated on how to speak to customers.  Aretha wants her fired. 





Eric called in because he doesn’t want to be on his wife’s pregnancy diet.  She wants him to not drink alcohol, avoid cold cuts, skip fish… He says that she’s pregnant, not him.  It was close, but the audience sided with Eric.  He doesn’t have to follow “the being pregnant rules” if he doesn’t want to. 





Happy National Hamburger Day! 

On this date in 1900, Louis Lassing from New Haven’s famous Louis’ Lunch is credited for creating the first hamburger on a bun! We discussed the best burgers in CT and you can chime in on our Facebook page!




While Big Jim was away, he had a celebrity spotting with Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter)- He argued with his friends whether it was inappropriate to approach him at dinner… What are your thoughts?  You can let us know on our Facebook page!
