Today on KSR: EJ Price gets a police escort to practice

This morning, we pay tribute to one of the best voices in country music. Yesterday, Glen Campbell passed away at the age of 81 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.

Campbell was a legendary singer and guitarist, a staple on stage and on television from the mid-60’s to the late 80’s. He was most well known for “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights,” but he was also one of the most accomplished guitarists, and therefore session musicians, in the country. You can hear his fretwork on the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” and “Help Me Rhonda,” Frank Sinatra’s “Something in the Night” and Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas,” among hundreds of recordings.

Rest in peace, Glen. With his music in our ears, let’s roll into today’s agenda.

KSR Podcast of the Day: Freddie meets his favorite

Yesterday, I was able to help a bit of magic happen. Jon Toth is making an appearance at a fundraiser for Reece’s Make-A-Wish Foundation this Saturday at Anchorage Presbyterian Church from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.(for more info, click here), and contacted KSR to promote it. Who better for him to talk to than his #1 fan, Freddie Maggard? Toth surprised Freddie by calling in to the Depth Chart Podcast, and hearing Freddie’s reaction will make your Wednesday.

Cord-cutting Move of the Day: Disney to pull new releases off Netflix

It’s long been rumored that Disney will start its own streaming service with ESPN, and yesterday, the media giant backed up that talk by ending its distribution agreement with Netflix and buying the majority ownership of BAMTech, a video streaming company founded by Major League Baseball. Disney plans to launch an ESPN-branded multi-sport video streaming service in early 2018, which could prompt millions of sports fans to finally cut the cable. I know I’m not alone when I say live sports are pretty much the only reason I still pay Comcast entirely too much money, so I’ll be following this development very closely.

    You should look into SlingTV Mrs. TT. Live sports, all the ESPNs and more, $20-30/month. Cable has been dead.

    I’m cutting the cord anyways, next Spring when my Directv contract expires. Hope the ESPN streaming service hits them right in their insanely greedy bottom line.

    On another note, why would getting up to lift weights at 3:30 be healthy? Sleep matters too.

      Based on the sunlight in the video, it was 3:30 in the afternoon. Glad he made it on time, but not a good look for E.J.

      Ah, an afternoon nap. I didn’t watch the video. but that makes more sense. I’ll wake up any minute now.

    Pretty sure it was ’96 when Glen Campbell sang the national anthem in Rupp before the Arkansas game. We lost that game, but the season turned out all right.

    UK players get police rides TO practice, U of L players get police rides FROM practice.

    Great, so instead of paying one large premium each month for cable, we’re going to have to pay $10 a month to a bunch of different channels online that each will require their own unique username and password. Are the kids still saying FML?

    The main reason I still have DTV is not only sports, but also the DVR. I am so hooked on the convenience of that thing that it is hard to give up. When you have kids that constantly interrupt what you are watching, you appreciate the ability to hit pause or rewind. And having this on any set in the house (Genie) is really nice. I realize that there are stand-alone DVR’s, but not a whole-house solution that I am aware of. When one comes along that is affordable, I will cut the cord immediately, because I usually only find myself watching local channels anyway. Most of the content on cable or satellite is trash anyway. Does anyone actually watch a show called “Do You Poop Enough?”?
