The holidays are a wonderful time for most. Seeing how I live 800 plus miles away from my family I have to make do on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This isnâ€™t all bad as I made a few friends with holiday connections that only return to Jamestown a few times a year. Thus while others are dinning with in laws and grouchy relatives I get to meet new people.
One of which this year was Dan Dewald. I know what three of you are thinking; yes that Dan Dewald, the radio talk show host.
Dewald is out of Grand Forks and can be heard on KNOX 1310 on weekdays from 2 to 5 p.m. Those who really want to find a live steam, Iâ€™m sure you can just Google â€œDan Dewald show.â€
Anyways, Dewald and I sat down with a mutual friend and shared a few drinks and conversations about governors with mustaches and bullying and also more mustaches.
Well I proposed Dewald and I shoot a game of pool, as I do with most friends, and continue the conversation.
His response: â€œI donâ€™t play games of chance.â€
Hereâ€™s a clip of my response or something like it, Iâ€™m pretty sure I said a few of these things.
Come on Dewald, billiards is a game of skill, not chance. And trust me after you denied my proposal at pool I promptly lost $6 at a game of chance because I chanced that some dude from Iowa knew how to play blackjack. Mistake.
Anyways his radio show is decent, I liked his transition from nacho cheese, to Wikilinks, to dead air yesterday.
But who am I to judge, he was live for the first time and it was my first time listening. Iâ€™ll probably listen again in the near future, as should you.
Have you heard Dewald and his love of nacho cheese? If so, sound off.
