Editors Note: Dave is pretty distracted today. He lost his weekly notes that he drafts on Sunday which had the Friday outline in them. While the podcast isn’t exactly a “stream of conscience” moment, it is a bit more of Dave ruminating on the recent shows and the course his own life is about to take.
There was a time when the Nation was practically invulnerable. On the night before he left office, Ike explained to JFK why certain things had been handled the way that they had been. Despite Kennedy’s campaign issue on the so-called “missile gap” with the Soviets, Eisenhower had remained silent on the matter, refusing to help Nixon’s campaign by refuting the false claim.
And now, in the office he would occupy just after noon the next day, Kennedy learned why he had been so silent. In that moment, Kennedy would later realize, lie the difference between a campaign for President and actually being President.
As the meeting between the two men wrapped up, Ike reached for the phone, and said three short words. within a few moment, the Marine 1 Helicopter was waiting on the South Lawn. As the two men left the office and returned to the groups they were with, he said, “I’ve just shown my friend here how to get out of here in a hurry.”
Is it happening? There have been some rumors going about, and in truth Dave actually started them, but now the answer and the official word can be announced about the Big Move to the PACNORWEST.
Dave gives you his predictions about the AFC and NFC Championships on Sunday.

Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace? Wait… that’s not right…
What’s Dave been up to? The Super Bowl ends on a fowl note. Did the Modesto Police Department really decide to not intervene in a burglary?
The big day is finally here!
In just a couple of hours, I will sit down in here and record the show, the first Dave Bowman Show Podcast. While I won’t have live phones today, the hope is that if my phone company (which shall remain nameless, but it rhymes with “Verizon” can get its act together), we soon will. eventually we will move to live streaming of the show, but for now, just On Demand Podcasts.
The shows will be available on this website. On the Menu Bar above there is a link for the podcasts. You’ll be able to get them via iTunes or the XML Feed. On that, you can simply “right-click” and “save as” to store them for your listening time. The plan is to release the podcast at 3pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, along with some other podcasts as we get those in the pipeline as they become available.
As you look at the days news and events, you are welcome to still participate. The text machine IS OPEN as is the VOICE MAIL on which you can leave me your thoughts and comments. If you want them to be a part of any given show, try to leave them before 10am, but they are always welcome! That number is, and will always be: 209-565-DAVE (3283)
The biggest change you will notice is that I WILL read eMail. I won’t promise that I will care about all of them, but I will read them. You can send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am pretty excited about this, and happy to be behind the microphone again. Thank you to all of you who texted, called, eMailed and Facebooked your support and encouragement. This is a whole new ballgame, and while we will not be “starting over,” we are certainly moving onward and upwards! Read the rest of this entry
