BRIAN SMITH is the same Brian Smith of  SMITH AND BARBER, THE MORNING SHOW on WPLR… his solo afternoon talk show on WICC 600AM, and as host and announcer for the Fairfield University Stags basketball games at Harbor Yard… and for the Bridgeport Bluefish …  and as an anchorman at FM NEWS NEW YORK in New York City… you can email him at:

(Many people have been asking about the BrianSmithRadio Facebook page… and so have I… they sent me a form-letter email saying they removed my page because they don’t think I am an actual  person… when the Facebook people actually answer me, and allow me to prove I am a real person, I’m sure it will be back up.   Maybe their stock price would improve if their customer service improved…)

THE  VOICE has been quiet, reflecting on the tragedy of this past week…trying, as we all have, to understand sometimes there is no understanding for the evil ways of our species… as sure as there is good, there is bad… as there are those who advance we humans to a higher level of compassion for each other, there are those who pull us back… and as sure as there is functional, there is…  the other side.  As the business of the world goes forward, saddened and distracted over the loss we have all felt, THE VOICE has contributed his column this week, giving you, as usual, his outlook on this week’s NFL MATCH UPS and MORE… go to the SPORTS PICKS PAGE… or just click (here)…

how about some diversions…

AMERICA’S DISAPPEARING RESTAURANT CHAINS… we’re looking at you, Bennigan’s… and Blimpie… and Ponderosa… here’s a list of 10 restaurant chains who’s popularity is slowly being eaten away…. for the list and more… go to the story at Yahoo Finance, click (here)…

FANCY FAST FOOD…. speaking of restaurant chains… what very popular fast food chain was not allowed to tear down a New Hyde Park, New York farmhouse, built in the late 1700s… to build one of their typical restaurants?… so they restored the historic landmark Denton House and put the restaurant inside…  Here’s a hint.  It’s McDonalds.  I’m not good with hints.  Read the story, and see more pictures of the nicest looking McDonald’s where you’ll ever egg your McMuffin… click (here)…

VIDEO… SEE ALL THE PLANES LANDING AT SAN DIEGO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN FIVE HOURS… IN 26 SECONDS… you really should see this… and make sure you have your volume up…

Merry Christmas… Happy New Year…. Happy Holidays… and be safe… and thanks for listening… Brian
