Josephine and her husband Don hosted KSR for lunch

Josephine, one of our favorite radio show callers, and her husband, Don, hosted Matt and Ryan for some home cookin’ after the show today. If you listen to the show, you know Josephine is awesome and she’s been planning this lunch for a long time. Today, it finally happened — and I’m extremely jealous because the food looked awesome.

Matt aired a brief interview with Josephine on Periscope after the meal and we learned a lot about her and Don. For instance, they’ve been married for 61 years, though Don doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. Also, Josephine has liked UK since she was in diapers and her all-time favorite player is “I can’t think of his name.”

Other Josephine and Don facts:

— Don has 4,000 movies and videos on cassette tapes in his bedroom

— Devin Booker is cute and he is a good ball player. Josephine didn’t want him to leave.

— They discovered KSR by watching Matt on KSTV. Josephine likes his voice.

— There’s a chocolate cake in the fridge.

    You guys need to pull some strings to get Josephine to be the Y at a game this season.

    Ha, Josephine is just like I pictured her. There is nothing like home-cooked meals in Kentucky and there is nothing like the great fans of the BBN.

    I wonder if Josephine has ever been to a game at Rupp?

      If not, I think we should get a kickstarter together to have the red carpet rolled out for her…

    They could be my neighbors next door! I’m sure Josephine will have a lot to talk about the next time she goes to get her hair done. 😉

    Josephine brings back memories of my great-grandmother. She was a die hard UK basketball fan. She would always turn the TV down because she couldn’t hear it anyway (even with hearing aids) and start clapping when they made a basket. Even during the Billy G years, she never gave up on the program. She would have loved to have seen where it is at now with Coach Cal. She passed away a few years ago at 100 years old.

    By far, one of the classiest things you’ve done at KSR.

    If not the “Y” than surely at least a meet and greet with the coach and team is in order.
    Glad you guys were able to finally enjoy that food with her.
    This is why BBN is incredible. Reminds me of my 79 year-old mother-in-law, except that she still has a bit a of a “thing”for that “Pitiner fella” but she wishes he didn’t coach them “damned Cardinals”.

    My mother-in-law passed away way to early but she was a huge UK fan, they lived a couple doors down from us. When we took Arkansas into overtime after Rhodes missed the free throws and Anthony Epps saved the day. I did the “Matt thing” and went outside, I couldn’t watch it. She ran down to give me updates through the overtimes etc. She would be Josephine if she was alive today. RIP Gerry ! and God bless Josephine. What a lovely lady.
