Title: FINALE SHOW — Closing the Safety Pin “ter to TOR” — Graduation, Celebration, and Connection — featuring Esteb, Dubel, Kelly, Flannery, Jones, Waters, BJ, EPOC Underground, and Gold

Episode Number: 171

Host: Dr. Thomas Lamar

Show Date: 12/31/2013

Run Time: 461:52

Description:   While some may remember it as the episode that holds the World’s Record for the LONGEST Chiropractic Podcast EVER Recorded (7 hours, 41 minutes, and 52 seconds), for others the Finale Episode of Spinal Column Radio memorializes a TRANSFORMATION — a transformation they have witnessed in themselves when it comes to chiropracTIC.  Because of the content shared on SCR, they — like the host, Dr. Thomas Lamar — have experienced a “shift.” For in their regular listening, they have witnessed in themselves a CHANGE — a change in how they now THINK, TEACH, and PREACH chiropractic. The “safety pin” between their ears has clicked into position and a “CONNECTION” has been made. They now GET the Big Idea. They now GET chiropracTIC and see themselves as chiropracTORs. They have undergone “The ter to TOR Evolution.” Have YOU?

Join Dr. Thomas Lamar (and Logan) for a final episode that not only recognizes this “shift” with Graduation and Celebration, but CONNECTS it all together with the SAFETY PIN.

First Dr. Lamar and Listeners symbolically GRADUATE “ter to TOR” — marking this moment in history — as they join Life Chiropractic College West’s Graduation Ceremony LIVE via a mic’ed-up Big TOR on Campus, Brett Jones, to vicariously walk across the platform with him. Not only will listeners “graduate” with Lamar, but he, through the POWER OF THE PODCAST, addresses the actual student graduates at Life West from his SCR Studio on their Big Screen. Afterwards, Life West President, Dr. Brian Kelly, joins the program to share some words with the newly “graduated” SCR-ter-to-TOR-Listeners. Then, if all that weren’t enough, Life West Dean of Enrollment, Dr. Mary Flannery joins Lamar in-studio to talk about an exciting new program that allows “ter to TOR”graduate-listeners to CONNECT with Life West through their Safety Pin Project — grafting them in the family as “alumni” of their philosophical, vitalistic, subluxation-based institution. Plus participating SCR Listeners will receive a Spinal Column Radio Safety Pin Certificate, acting as a “diploma” that will remind and tell of this transformation graduation.

Then the Finale Show kicks into party mode, as Dr. Lamar and Logan CELEBRATE four years of Spinal Column Radio. They break out STATS and share MEMORIES. Lamar goes Underground at the Tacoma EPOC to CONNECT with some of the Best SCR Backyard Listeners and Chiro Bros on the Planet (Aaron Toler, Seth Anderson, Nathan Wall, and Walt Scott) and then is back in studio to continue the celebration with some special people… people who share a special place in Lamar’s 18-year “ter to TOR journey.” On the guest list: Bill Esteb, Jim Dubel, Todd Waters, and Reggie Gold.

Plus, for some Chiro-Comedy, Todd Water’s “BJ” character has some final interactions with the SCR team, and Lamar shares some very fitting words from the real BJ written out of his previously unpublished work, The Great Undertow. And CONNECTING it all together in the spirit of the Safety Pin… is a history segment that was patiently waiting for Lamar to discover. On this episode Lamar pays tribute to Washington State ChiropracTIC Pioneer, Dr. HT Hughes and his Chiropractic Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Medal.

His entire family of 9 drops in for a short stay, and then of course, Lamar wraps the whole thing with some CHARGING FINAL WORDS that are not to be missed.

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — Finding Frank Palmer

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


Documenting the life of DD Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic, has become an exciting endeavor for me.

I knew very little of the man before I began researching him. Actually, if anything, I knew more about the mysteries and myths surrounding his life then that of the truth.

Oakdale Cemeter Frank PalmerAnd to find that truth, I found myself searching beyond the perspective of other Chiropractic historians — beyond what we “already knew”… or thought we knew.

While their writings were often a good starting point in which to become familiar with the general biography of Old Dad Chiro, many inconsistencies existed between them. Instead, I found old newspaper articles to be the narrative I needed, unveiling the life of Palmer as a healer. We are fortunate the papers covered Palmer as much as they did, because now we are privy to some of the missing pieces his biography has been lacking.

One of my discoveries that nearly had me jumping out of my seat was an obituary of Frank Palmer.

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — Composing the BJ Palmer Mansion

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


From the moment you walk in, you are overcome by a feeling of heaviness. For the Second Empire structure recognizes no other time than the period it housed its master, Dr. BJ Palmer.

Those that have had the opportunity to visit the BJ Palmer Mansion — which sits on the south end of the block of buildings on Brady Street that make up the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa — quickly recognize the richness to our past that this piece of chiropractic history affords.

I’ve been to the mansion twice myself and have attempted to photograph every nook and cranny — an impossible and overwhelming task, because there are just too many fascinating items. Continue reading



Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — Finding the Three-Story Scrapbook

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


As I wrote in a recent Fresh Pick installment, I enjoy collecting stories and treasured memories from people who have a connection with Chiropractic’s early years — tales, which I often find escape our chiro-history texts. While these stories can sometimes be difficult, if not impossible, to fact-check, I still find that they allow me to be a better ChiroPicker.  For they often provide missing clues — acting as that needed breadcrumb — to bring me (and I’m sure other chiro-historians) closer to unearthing other great discoveries.

Here’s another one of my favorites:

Dr. Gary Street joined up with the now late Dr. Merwyn Zarbuck to assist him in his twenty-five year quest for BJ Palmer’s scrapbook.

BJ, as you may know, wrote about his scrapbook in the Green Book series and stated it was not actually a book per se, but files upon files of anything and everything documenting chiropractic’s history from its conception.

Old FilesThe scrapbook contained notebooks, journals, newspaper clippings, publications, and letters.

And while BJ wrote about this compilation, he did not state where it was kept — which would have been a big deal, because the files were rumored to have occupied three floors! 

Surely, a collection this large would be easy to find after a cursory search about the campus.  But then again, the references to BJ as “The Little Builder” were not made in vain. He was constantly constructing additions at the Palmer School — acquiring neighboring properties for expansion to allow him to interconnect his buildings. Perhaps during these structural revisions the three-floor-scrapbook got “misplaced.” Continue reading
