Title: Dr. Joseph Strauss, Dr. Eric Plasker, and Station WHO

Episode Number: 168

Host: Dr. Thomas Lamar

Show Date: 10/10/13

Run Time: 220:16

Description:   Dr. Thomas Lamar is talking about Old Time Radio again!  Join him as he steps back in time to tune in chiropractic-radio-past to talk about the “other” radio station BJ Palmer is known for: Station WHO. Plus he empties the Fall 2012 New Beginnings Interview Vault to share two great interviews.  In the number one slot: Dr. Eric Plasker, author of the international best-selling 100 Year Lifestyle returns to share the keys to revolutionizing our patient education.  Then, in the number two slot:  Blue Books auTHOR, educaTOR, and long time chiropracTOR, Dr. Joe Strauss sits down to talk about drawing lines — demarcating between not only chiropractic and medicine, but chiropractic philosophy and Christianity.  At the half way point, Dr. Lamar gives an overview of his “Mission Possible” ChiroFEST 2013 experience and shares an interviewette he did with the well-known GMO Health-Risk Expert, Jeffery Smith. Plus, take a virtual “tour of the mind” through BJ’s first radio station: WOC; marvel at the POP; learn all about parachuting cats, and enjoy the radio stories of former President of the United States, Ronald “Dutch” Reagan — Palmer’s most remembered station employee.

(Interviews with Drs. Eric Plasker and Joseph Strauss recorded at the Fall 2012 New Beginnings Chiropractic Weekend in Long Branch, New Jersey).

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — WHO Radio

Updated Picker Imageby  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger

Bankers Life president, Gerard Nollen, stated that the purpose of the newsletter was to “promote loyalty and enthusiasm” among his employees. I got the sense while reading through these newsletters that Nollen would have been a good person to work for and that he encouraged his team to use their talents.
