Where did we go wrong?
Doc Thompson  Returns to Cincinnati!
 

Like so many Government initiatives, Earth Day started out as a great idea but has turned into a mess.   Come celebrate Earth Day with EmpowerU as Blaze Radio Network's Doc Thompson returns to Cincinnati.

Earth Day started when Americans were slurping leaded gas through massive vehicles and Industry belched out smoke and sludge. All Americans agreed on working toward and attaining clean water, air and responsible industry regulations. 

Has what begun with lofty good intentions turned into an avenue for the Government to have more control over our lives? It has led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. 

Has Earth Day been hacked and the original intent forgotten or taken over?
    
Join us for Happy Hour in Glendale, feel free to bring adult beverages and lawn chairs as we will be outside if the weather is nice.   Happy Hour starts at 5:30 PM, the program at 6:00 PM.

Wear your best Earth Day costume (Winner gets a prize) and join the always fun Doc Thompson and Skip from Blaze Radio to reflect on Earth Day 2016. 

Let's take a candid at this and other Earth Day issues at a fun-filled Earth Day Event sponsored by EmpowerU.

Biography
Doc Thompson grew up just across the lake, east of Cleveland. His earliest memories include his mom listening to Detroit radio in the car so he is very excited to finally be part of it. Doc has very large extended family located all over including a sister and brother-in-law who live in Michigan on the west side of the state.

Doc has been  fired by great radio stations all across the country. He has worked in Richmond, Lincoln, and Las Vegas to name a few. He was instrumental in some of those stations winning 5 Marconi Awards, the equivalent of the Academy Award for radio excellence. 

Laughing and making people laugh are important to Doc. His medium of choice is of course radio. He dabbles in many styles with sarcasm and satire usually present. Although he is candid and forthright he loves good spirited practical jokes. 

His passions include great conversation, travel, and good food. His palate is tempted by cheap wine, expensive beer, and most things carne (PETA be damned). 

His favorite books include Atlas Shrugged and 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.

 His favorite movies include; Casablanca, Shawshank Redemption and Groundhog Day. 

Doc is slowly learning to speak Korean which seems a bit premature because he can barely speak English but he is trying to determine if his Korean in-laws are talking about him!
