Message at the Top

"For the Right Reason"

Part 1
            Hello Central Kansas and around the world!  Happy Father’s Day to all of our fathers in the audience; and happy Summer to all of you which begins this Thursday; welcome to Mix 103’s unique top 10 show, “Message at the Top”.  I am Fr. Mike Scully.  This program at Mix 103 continues to give you only the very best in radio entertainment, / by including not only the popular songs of today and yesterday, but we also seek to find meaning within them, meaning that can inspire and challenge each of our lives.  Our motto throughout the show is to enjoy the music and listen to the message so that the message can help us live a little better.  As usual, we have music from the present and the past all warmed up on these fancy computers, and we are all set to bring them to you.  Last week the number 1 song was from Imagine Dragons.  We’ll see if they stay there.
            Taylor Swift has a song in the top 10 right now at number 7 called “Delicate.”  It is an interesting song about a relationship that seems to be good at the moment, but the lady in the relationship realizes that their time together is for the wrong reasons.  She sings, “I like you; this ain’t for the best.  My reputation’s never been worse, so you must like me for me.  Yeah, I want you.  We can’t make any promises now, but you can make me a drink.  I know that it’s delicate, isn’t it?”  She wants the feeling of the man’s presence, but she wants it to be for the right reason—“you must like me for me” she sings.  
            Why do we like things?  One author by the name of Dr. Paul Bloom of Yale University wrote a book called “How Pleasure Works: The New Science of Why We like What We Like.”  He says in his book that when we get pleasure for something, it’s not merely based on what we see or what we hear or what we feel.  Rather, it is based on what we believe that thing to be.
            He says that the general fact about pleasure is this: You think wine tastes better if you think it is expensive or special.  A painting is going to look different to us, and we will value it differently if we know that the person who created it is someone special.
            Whatever.  It means for the person in Taylor Swift’s song that something is pleasurable for her if her boyfriend is liking her because she is herself, not somebody he would like her to be.  It is great thought about relationships.  If there is love present, then we are going to like or love the other person not for what I think he/she should be, but for what that person is, or as Taylor Swift says, “You must like me for me.”
            That’s an interesting thought for a Sunday morning.  What is the “right reason” for how we think or act or talk?  Let’s call our show today, “For the Right Reason” and to start us off, Taylor Swift’s song from her album “Reputation,” her song “Delicate,” number 7 on MATT.
(double)    7 DELICATE / Taylor Swift
                                    SHAKE IT OFF / Taylor Swift
 
Part 2
            From her Grammy award winning Album of the Year, “1989”, Taylor Swift and a song from 2014, “Shake It Off” with the lady in the song saying that she "shakes off" the insulting words that are spoken to her.  "I stay out too late.  Got nothing in my brain, that’s what people say.  I go on too many dates, but I can’t make them stay.  At least that’s what people say.  But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving.  It’s like I got this music in my mind, saying ‘It’s gonna be alright.’  ‘Cause the players gonna play, and the haters gonna hate.  I’m just gonna shake.  I shake it off.  Heartbreakers gonna break, and the fakers gonna fake.  I’m just gonna shake it off.”  She is taking charge of her own life, not worrying about what people say.  She is acting for the right reason, our theme today, because she must get her life in order.
            Let’s go to our first triple play of the day and begin it with one of our birthday people this week.  Lana Del Rey from New York City will be 33 this Thursday.  “Kiss me hard before you go” she sings.  “Summertime sadness.  I just wanted you to know that you’re the best.  I got my red dress on tonight, dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight, done my hair up real big beauty-queen style, high heels off, I’m feeling alive.  I feel it in the air, telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare.  I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere, nothing scares me anymore.  I’ve got that summertime sadness.”  The lady in the relationship is going away and will not return.  The person in the song is leaving the situation probably because of a love that did not work out.  That often happens in relationships, of course, and so she is leaving, it would seem for the right reason, our theme today.  This is Lana Del Rey whose real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant and her song from 2013, “Summertime Sadness” from her album “Born to Die” on MATT.
(triple)        SUMMERTIME SADNESS / Lana Del Rey
                                    ALL OF ME / John Legend
                                    10 LIGHTS DOWN LOW / MAX f/ gnash
 
Part 3
            MATT presenting, Maxwell George Schneider, better known simply as MAX, and singing with him Garret Charles Nash better known as gnash and the song “Lights Down Low”, number 10 on MATT.  It is a former number 1 and comes from MAX’s album “Hell’s Kitchen Angel”.  The song is an infatuation song.  “Can I stop the flow of time?” they sing, “Can I swim in your divine?  ‘Cause I don’t think I’d ever leave this place.  Turn the lights down low.  I’m feeling you breathing slow.  ‘Cause, we’re just reckless kids trying to find an island in the flood.”  They are both searching for love as they discover their love for each other and in life, and both have to be seriously involved and if they are, they are searching for the right reason, our theme today.
            Before them we heard a former number one in 2014 from John Roger Stephens better known as John Legend, an American singer/songwriter born in Springfield, Ohio, on the music scene since 2004, and quite an accomplished artist.  His song is “All of Me” from his album “Love in the Future.”  It is a love song, but his girlfriend is just a little mixed up, although it sounds as though she is coming around to what the man in the relationship wants.  “What would I do without your smart mouth,” he begins the song, “drawing me in and you kicking me out.”  But the refrain is: “All of me loves all of you.  Love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.  Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you.  You’re my end and my beginning.  Even when I lose I’m winning ‘cause I give you all of me, and you give me all of you.”  It is a song of beginning romantic love, and the man is hopeful that the relationship will last.  Beginning romantic love is always a time of wonder for couples, and one that you really have to allow to happen by giving it enough time.  I have no practical experience with that, to say the least, but I know that it is true after counseling a lot of beginning love relationships.  Therefore you are waiting for the right reason, our theme today.
            We will continue our presentation of songs from the top 10 from today and yesterday after these messages.  Get ready for music from the numbers 9 and 8 songs on our countdown, as well as music from birthday people this week—Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Cyndi Lauper.  May I take you to break with a thought from Bobby Layne, once upon a time NFL quarterback—I love this because it an immensely positive statement.  He had lost a game, and the media was on him calling it his fault.  His response:  “I never lost a game.  I just ran out of time.”  Right on, Bobby.  Time is one of the things we need to take in the present so that our future will be better.  Your dial is set for “Message at the Top”; may I implore you to keep it there.  As MacArthur, we will return!

Part 4
            Hi, everyone.  You are in tune with “Message at the Top,” your top 10 show that plays songs from the top 10, but also great songs of meaning from past top 10’s as well.  Welcome back to the songs that make us think—truly think.  We take the top 10 of the past 38 years, study their messages, and then call our show MATT.  Happy Father’s Day to any fathers who may be listening this morning.  Our plea to you is to enjoy the music, and listen to the message.  I’m your host, Fr. Mike Scully.  It’s great to have you here.  We’re concentrating on a theme from a song from Taylor Swift and her song “Delicate” calling our theme: “For the Right Reason.”
            Let’s go to a double play right now and begin it with another birthday person, Mr. Kendrick Lamar Duckworth better known simply as Kendrick Lamar who is 31 today here singing with Maroon 5.  It is a song of pretending that what is happening really isn’t happening, / and that is a disaster in a love relationship.  “I don’t wanna know,” they sing, “who’s taking you home and loving you so / the way I used to love you.”  He’s spending his time drinking which does not solve the problem, of course and he’s wondering whether she is thinking of him and whether she’s happy.  But he continues to say that he doesn’t want to know.  So, he is into denial, and it only causes more pain.  He is spending his time thinking about the relationship which is good, but he is drinking, and therefore not solving the problem because he is not doing things for the right reason, our theme today.  This is Maroon 5 and birthday person Kendrick Lamar and their song “Don’t Wanna Know” on MATT.
(double)  DON’T WANNA KNOW / Maroon 5 f/ Kendrick Lamar
                      9 PERFECT / Ed Sheeran
 
Part 5
            From his album which is a division sign, Mr. Ed Sheeran and his song “Perfect” former number 1, now at number 9 on MATT.  The song has been in the top 10 for a long time and is a beautiful love song both in sound and in word.  “I found a love for me,” he begins the song, “just dive right in and follow my lead.  I found a girl, beautiful and sweet, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me ‘cause we were just kids when we fell in love, not knowing what it was.  I will not give you up this time, your heart is all I own and in your eyes you’re holding mine.  When you said you looked a mess, I whispered you look perfect tonight.”  Listening to the song, it seems as though the man in the relationship is being totally honest and totally complimentary to his girlfriend.  In terms of our theme, he is convinced that he is loving her for the right reason which is out of true love for her.
            Another triple play is ready for us right now on these fancy computers featuring one of our birthday people.  It is a song, of all things, about shopping in a thrift shop.  I don’t agree with all the descriptive words that are in the song, and I wish that our modern songs would take into consideration the image that they are portraying for our world.  Be that as it may, the song is very good in thought and sound, I believe, in that it is making fun of the “stuff” that we in America have and we don’t need.  “I’m gonna pop some tags,” they sing in their refrain, “only got twenty dollars in my pocket, I’m hunting, looking for a come-up: this is awesome.”  That idea of a “come-up” is exactly what we want in life—we always want more than we have, and a thrift shop will help us get it, to be sure.  What contribution does it make to our theme “For the Right Reason,” well, we don’t want to miss the fact that we always want more, and maybe we should control that a little more in the present so that our future will be a little better than it could be.  And if we control ourselves, we are doing things for the right reason.  From the Grammys a couple of years ago, birthday person Benjamin Hammond Hagerty better known as Macklemore who will be 35 years old on Tuesday and Ryan Lewis featuring the talents of Michael Wanzley better known as Wanz, and their song “Thrift Shop” on MATT.
(triple)        THRIFT SHOP / Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
                                    TRUE COLORS / Cyndi Lauper
                                    8 GOOD OLD DAYS / Macklemore f/ Kesha
 
Part 6     
            That was Benjamin Hammond Hagerty better known as Macklemore again and with him this time is Kesha Rose Sebert better known as Kesha and their song “Good Old Days” number 8 on MATT.  It is an excellent song about the magic of the good old days, basically saying we have to live in the present and realize that what we did in the past is affecting what we do today.  “I wish somebody would have told me,” Kesha begins the song, “someday, there will be the good old days, all the love you won’t forget and all these reckless nights you won’t regret—someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change.” In the rap part of the song, Macklemore says, “Now look at where we are, still growing up. Now that I’m here, wishing for those good old days.” Some great philosophy in the song, telling us that remembering the past is good, but we will always be able to remember the past—what we must do now is live well.  “Been scared of the future, thinking about the past while missing out on now,” they sing.  Thinking of it with our theme, understanding those good old days is part of doing things for the right reason.  
            Before them, we heard from a lady from Queens in New York City from her album named after the song, from the year 1986, “True Colors” on MATT, and I believe a great song of meaning.  It comes from Cyndi Lauper who will be 65 years old on Friday.  Her song is about what a person is really like.  “Oh, I realize it’s hard to take courage in a world full of people,” she sings.  “The darkness inside you can make you feel so small.  Show me a smile, then.  Don’t be unhappy.  I can’t remember when I last saw you laughing.  If this world makes you crazy, and you’ve taken all you can bear, you call me up, and I’ll see your true colors shining through.  I see your true colors, and that’s why I love you.  So, don’t be afraid to let them show.  True colors are beautiful, like a rainbow.”  In terms of our theme today, finding one’s true colors—their honest lives—is a tremendous thing to work for at the present time so that a person’s future will be even more tremendous.  That is doing things for the right reason.  Good song.
            Always great stuff to think about here, and we have great stuff to go yet.  The title of MATT today is “For the Right Reason.”  Taylor Swift gave us the idea with her song “Delicate”.  Our next 60 minutes of music and message will explore that theme with great top 10 music from Zedd and Imagine Dragons among others.  Here to lead you to break is a thought from Shelley Winters: she was correcting someone who had the courage to speak their mind and call her “a little overweight,” she said: “I’m not overweight, I’m just nine inches too short.”  The truth is always important and we must say it for the right reason.  Yes, indeed.  I’m Fr. Mike for “Message at the Top”.  Don’t even think about touching that dial!

Part 7
            We are back, as we celebrate another Sunday of June with you, in fact almost summer which begins Thursday.  Happy Summer almost, everyone.  And Happy Father’s Day to the fathers in our audience.  I hope it is a good one for you.  This is “Message at the Top”.  I’m Fr. Mike Scully, ready to lead you through the second hour of our show today, playing and speaking about all of our songs working on a theme which takes the songs’ meanings, and ties them into the thought of doing things for the right reason.  Thanks for joining us this morning.
            Our first triple play of this second hour together today is all from our current countdown beginning with number 6 from Bebe Rexha and friends.  It has a pretty good message.  That message: let’s take our time to work things out, and if it’s meant to be, then it’s right.  Of course, as I have said, I would add that God will work with us as we work things out, but I am a clergyperson, remember.  “Lay on back and relax,” the man in the relationship says, “No need to go nowhere fast, let’s enjoy right here where we at.  Who knows where this road is supposed to lead?  We got nothing but time.  If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.  So won’t you ride with me, see where this thing goes.”  The reason why they need some time to see where the thing goes is given by the lady in the relationship: “I don’t mean to be so uptight, but my heart’s been hurt a couple times by a couple guys that didn’t treat me right.  I’m tired of the fake love.”  And if she gets rid of fake love, it is understanding love for the right reason, our theme today.  This is a former number 1, Bebe Rexha, 28 year old singer/ songwriter/ record producer from Brooklyn, New York and country duo Florida Georgia Line and their song “Meant to Be” number 6 on MATT. 
(triple)        6 MEANT TO BE / Bebe Rexha f/ Florida Georgia Line
                                    5 IN MY BLOOD / Shawn Mendea
                                    4 WAIT / Maroon 5
 
Part 8
            MATT presenting the very popular group Maroon 5 from their latest album “Red Pill Blues” and their song “Wait”, number 4 on MATT.  It is a song about the importance of being able to apologize.  “Oh, let me apologize,” they sing, “I’ll make up for all those times.  Your love, I don’t wanna lose, I’m beggin’ you.  Wait, can you turn around, can we work this out, can you come here please?  ‘Cause I wanna be with you.  Can we talk for a moment?”  The man in the relationship has done some things that are totally wrong, and now, he’s begging her to give him another chance.  In love, we must always give each other another chance only when we are working with love for the right reason, our theme today.  
            Before them, we heard Shawn Mendes from his new album named after him that will be released later this year, and his song “In My Blood”, number 5 on MATT.  It was our theme last week when we spoke about the fact that doing the right thing is up to us.  The song leads to some serious thinking about ourselves.  The song itself is a song of pain and asking for help, and then realizing that he must depend on himself.  “Help me,” he sings, “it’s like the walls are caving in.  Sometimes I feel like giving up, but I just can’t: it isn’t in my blood.”  He sings all of the possible ways that he could go to make himself feel better, but he understands that he must help himself because he’s built that way—in his blood.  Super thought: we may need help and we have to indeed search for it, but ultimately, it is up to us.  And if we understand the importance of doing things ourselves, we are probably doing them for the right reason, our theme today. 
            Our second triple play of this hour begins with Paula Julie Abdul who will be 56 years old Tuesday.  She began her career as a Los Angeles Laker cheerleader, and has had many music and choreography awards.  This song is from 1989, and permit me a little introduction.  The reputation of the snake was set a long time ago.  The snake is the author of falsehood, the master of deception, the liar.  But because of what the snake pretended to give, the one who listened / wanted to believe.  Such was the real reason the snake was so devious.  It sounded so good, but in reality was no good at all.  I’m referring, of course, to the story in the book of Genesis in the Bible, and the fall of woman and man.  As a result, when we address someone as a “snake,” we are saying that such a person may sound good, but reality does not match their words.  She begins with the words, “He’s a cold-hearted snake, look into his eyes.  You’re the one giving up the love anytime he needs it, but you turn your back and then he’s up and running with the crowd.”  That is to say, it looks like “love” on the outside, but it is “lies” on the inside—only a “lover-boy at play.”  There is only one way to treat such a person, and Paula Abdul sings it: “You deserve somebody better.  Stay away from him!”  In terms of our theme, if we recognize another to be a cold-hearted snake, get out of the relationship.  And if you do, you are doing it for the right reason, our theme today.  This is Paula Abdul, from the year 1989, and “Cold-Hearted” on MATT. 
(triple)     COLD-HEARTED / Paula Abdul
                      BEFORE HE CHEATS / Carrie Underwood
                      SEE YOU AGAIN / Wiz Khalifa f/ Charlie Puth
 
Part 9
            Speaking of the bigger picture that is called eternal life. Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth and their song honoring Paul Walker “See You Again” from 2015 on MATT.  The bigger picture involves going beyond this life and recognizing the truth of eternal life.  “It's been a long day without you, my friend,” they sing, “And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again.  We've come a long way from where we began.  Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again.  Who knew?  All the planes we flew, good things we've been through that I'll be standing right here talking to you about another path.  I know we loved to hit the road and laugh, but something told me that it wouldn't last, had to switch up, look at things different, see the bigger picture.  Those were the days, hard work forever pays.  Now I see you in a better place.”  A clergyman like myself just loves it when eternal life is alluded to in a popular song, and therefore, in my humble opinion, they are using the medium of music to do the right thing, our theme today.
            Before them, we heard from Carrie Underwood, American Idol number 4, primarily a country singer, but the one song on our pop playlist is a very interesting one, and can give us cause to reflect a little, I believe.  It is from her album “Some Hearts” and a song not to imitate, “Before He Cheats”.  It is a statement of revenge, the scenario of a lady who knows that her boyfriend has cheated on her, and she is out to get him as he is choosing to be with another girl.  “Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleach blonde tramp,” she sings, “and she's probably getting frisky.  He don't know that I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats.  I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires.  Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.”  Now, that is taking revenge on someone else, and taking revenge, IMHO, in my humble opinion, is never done for the right reason, our theme today. 
            Our theme this almost Summer morning has come from Taylor Swift and the theme that we have taken from her is: “For the Right Reason.”  We’ll see how the songs of our final segment fit into that theme, as we have music lined up for you from the group Imagine Dragons and the top 3 in our land today.  Taking us to a little break, here is a statement from Mr. Winston Churchill: “I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.”  You bet—it would have been interesting to hear the conversation between Churchill and his maker.  Did he do things for the right reason?  Good question.  You’ve got Mix 103 on your radio dial right now.  Please keep it there—we’ll be right back.
COMMERCIAL BREAK
 
Part 10
            Every song has a message, and much of the time that message can help us live a little better.  Such is our belief on this show which we call MATT.  Happy almost first day of Summer to all of you, and happy Father’s Day to our fathers out there.  We welcome you back to the only show that gives you the music and meaning of the top 10 rock songs of today and yesterday.  My name is Fr. Mike Scully, and we are studying the songs of our show today in light of Taylor Swift’s song “Delicate” and the theme is “For the Right Reason.” 
            Tomorrow is Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots’ birthday when he will be 30 years old, and let’s celebrate it by a segment 10 dedication to him and fellow duo member Taylor Joseph.  And starting us off is a song that is longing for the time when we were young, and not appreciating the necessary maturity of older age.  “I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink, but now I'm insecure and I care what people think.  My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.  Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.  Out of student loans and treehouse homes, we all would take the latter.  We used to play pretend, give each other different names; we would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away.  Used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face, saying, ‘Wake up, you need to make money.’”  Whether the subject is love or life, dwelling on the past too much is not a way to maturity.  And more often than not we will not dwell on the past for the right reason, our theme today.  This is triple Twenty One Pilots from Columbus, Ohio, and their first song “Stressed Out” from 2016 on MATT.
(triple)     STRESSED OUT / Twenty One Pilots
                                    RIDE / Twenty One Pilots
                                    HEATHENS / Twenty One Pilots
 
Part 11
            A song inspired by the movie “Suicide Squad” and part of the soundtrack of the movie, Twenty One Pilots again and their song “Heathens” on MATT.  It speaks of the fact that there are people in the world who are mixed up for some reason, and all of us have to be careful as we deal with people.  “All my friends are heathens.  Take it slow,” they sing.  They then sing of people who were loved and now are criminals, and you don’t really know who people around you are.  Their advice is to never forget and watch it.  Perhaps it is a positive spin that we should take from the song, and say that we should be aware of the pain of all people and realize where they are coming from.  In terms of our theme this week, if we manage to do that, we will be helping them for the right reason.
            Before them, them again, Twenty One Pilots also from their album “Blurryface”, and their song “Ride” from 2016.  It talks of life, I believe—that is, trying to live it as best we can, but life is difficult at times.  The person in the song is enjoying the ride, taking his/her time living, but it often feels like he/she is falling, that is without direction.  During the life, the person thinks about what it means to be a friend of someone, whether he/she would die for the other or not.  Then it seems the person in the song feels like he/she is thinking too much, saying “Help me” either to a friend or perhaps even to God.  It is a very interesting song, and one that you can spend a lot of time analyzing along with the video.  In terms of our theme, when we can learn to help others, we are doing things for the right reason.
            But what about now?  What are the top 3 songs in our land right now?  Well, here they come on the MATT music network beginning with number 3 from Camila Cabello and her latest song and a song of total infatuation with a boyfriend.  “Something must’ve gone wrong in my brain,” she sings, “Got your chemical all in my veins, feeling all the highs, feeling all the pain.  Now I’m seeing red, not thinking straight, blurring all the lines, you intoxicate me, just like nicotine, heroin, morphine.  Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need.  Just one hit of you.  I’ll never be the same.”  The lady in the relationship is overwhelmed with her feeling of the man, and in her mind, anyway, he is the answer to all her problems.  Whatever she decides she must think of him for the right reason, our theme today, and choose him with true love in mind.  This is Camila Cabello, and her song “Never Be the Same”, number 3 on MATT.
(double)    3 NEVER BE THE SAME / Camila Cabello
                                    2 WHATEVER IT TAKES / Imagine Dragons
 
Part 12
            Falling from the number 1 position on MATT is Imagine Dragons from their album “Evolve,” and their song “Whatever It Takes”.  It is a song involving thinking outside the box and trying to do good, “I was born to run,” they sing, “I was born for this.  Whip, run me like a racehorse, pull me like a ripcord.  Break me down and build me up, I wanna be the slip, word upon your lip, letter that you rip, break me down and build me up.  Whatever it takes, ‘cause I love the adrenaline in my veins.  I do whatever it takes, ‘cause I love how it feels when I break the chains.  Whatever it takes.  Always had a fear of being typical.”  In terms of our theme, we must always work at whatever it takes for love with the right reason.
            And the new number 1 song is from Zedd and a song about compromise, or as they call it meeting in the middle and the name of it is “The Middle”.  Zedd is performing here with the duo Grey and singer Maren Morris.  “Take a seat,” they sing, “Right over there, sat on the stairs, stay or leave.  The cabinets are bare and I’m unaware of just how we got into this mess.  Got so aggressive.  I know we meant all good intentions.  So pull me closer, come on over.  I can’t let you go.  Why don’t you just meet me in the middle?”  Compromise for the right reason, our theme today, should be the goal of every relationship.
            Our theme today has been that thought of doing things for the right reason.  The thought came from Taylor Swift and her song “Delicate.”  My prayer for you and me is that every one of us will be able to do everything we do for the right reason.  My thanks to the producers of “Message at the Top,” to the staff here at Mix 103, and to our sponsors, some of whom include my friends at Hays Car and Truck Alignment, at TMP-Marian Junior and Senior High School in Hays, and at Holy Family Elementary School in Hays.  If you have any suggestions for me, or if you want to comment on anything I have said, feel free to write me here at KJLS-FM, Hays, KS 67601 or e-mail me at frmikescully@yahoo.com.  My website is www.frmikescully.com where you will find a transcript of the show and some great meditations on these songs and some good movies.  Happy Father’s Day and Happy Summer to all of you.  Remember that you can join us on the web by choosing www.hayspost.com every Sunday morning at 10 Central Daylight Time and clicking on Mix 103.  A thought to lead us out comes from my favorite author, Mr. Mark Twain: “The reason we hold truth in such respect is because we have so little opportunity to get familiar with it.”  Whoa, cynical as always, but a truth—pun intended—that we should learn for the present and the future.  The new number 1 song in our land is from Zedd and Grey and Maren Morris and their song “The Middle”.  And, here it comes, as I remind you that you are listening to today’s best music Mix 103 and as usual, we remind you to hold a good thought.  My name is Fr. Mike Scully.  Peace to you, and be good.
