Title: Two Brothers and an Old Guy — the Nogrady Brothers and Chiropractic’s Palmergram

Episode Number: 161

Host: Dr. Thomas Lamar

Show Date: 05/17/13

Run Time: 128:15

Description:   It’s two brothers and an old guy!  Join Dr. Thomas Lamar (brother #1) as he takes his show on the road to Dana Point, California to team up with his brother, Brady (brother #2), in an effort to surprise their septuagenarian father (the Old Guy) on his birthday. Tune in and hear the three  reminisce as well as deliver solid chiropractic content that features — amazingly — two other brothers and an old guy. First, he welcomes back Cast to be Chiropractors coauthor, Dr. Judd Nogrady (brother #1), and then later, the meek chiropractic servitude of Dr. Adam Nogrady (brother #2) — two brothers that love chiropracTIC.  Plus, Dr. Darrell Gibson (the other Old Guy), enables us to step back in history, with the help of his DC son, to retell the story behind something many chiropractors know of… but don’t know much about — the Palmergram. It’s a piece of chiropractic history that saved the profession! Then in the post show our Big TOR on Campus drops by to share an amazing interview every chiropractic student needs to tune in to. Find out how Dr. Lona Cook paid off her student loans in two years after graduation. All this and more!

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — PALMERGRAM Proves Conflicts Clarify

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

As a non-DC, but avid DC-historian, I can speak with some authority when I say chiropractors have never had an easy time selling what they do to the public.  Although chiropractic is beneficial to the health of man, it is difficult to quickly explain to the layperson what it is — and on the flip side, what it isn’t.  Chiropractic concepts are further complicated when potential patients must “unlearn” what hearsay has taught them.

From its beginning, the chiropractic profession has been smeared by other practitioners of health care, driven by competition and misunderstanding.

However, there was a period in chiropractic’s early life where the profession was under attack by clowns…  Literally.

Tribute Song Brought Back to Life!

[A couple months back, our Chiro-Picker posted an article that showcased some of his coolest chiropractic radio finds from the days of old.  One such find was the sheet music to a song written and composed for BJ Palmer’s radio station, WOC, by vaudeville singer-dancer Nat Ozmon.  It was a tribute to both BJ and his wife, Mabel.  It’s been some time since the notes of this 1923 piece have made their way to the keys of a piano — as such the Picker issued an invitation for someone to step up and bring it back to life.  …Well, I just couldn’t resist.  With my love for chiropractic history — especially its radio history — the sheet music beckoned me.  And so, with the help of three willing participants from my church (Russ and Ardis Swank on vocals and Mary Stewart on piano), Nat’s song to the old W-O-C sprung back to life.  And from that not only was an audio podcast, by yours truly, inspired (SCR episode 105), but another installment of BJ TV.  What would BJ think??…. Well, you’ll just have to watch the video below to find out.  And then, of course tune into the audio podcast to squeeze the nectar out of this one.  My wife assures me that this is my best one yet!  (She always says that).  Below the video is an article from the Chiro-Picker which gives you some more of his thoughts on the song and some behind the scenes information related to this particular offering of BJ TV.  Oh… and I’ll be back with some extra info in the DC Angle at the bottom. dr. tom]
