What would Dean Martin think of the controversy over 'Baby It's Cold Outside?' His daughter Deana is speaking out about it. She said her dad would be "going insane" over the debate if he were still alive. Dean did the song for his 1959 album "A Winter Romance." Folks from the #METOO movement find the song to be "rapey" and totally inappropriate in the light of what's happening in the world.

Listener Melissa is drowning in life trying to make ends meet. She's a single parent raising her son, trying support her kid without any help. But in fact, she needs help to pay the rent and put food on the table. She didn't want to have to nominate herself for this Christmas Wish, but she could really use a hand up.
$1,000 in cash from Kearny Pearson Ford, plus a $500 gift card from Pick Up Stix will greatly help her catch up for awhile!
After her phone call, our generous listeners called in and donated $700 MORE to help her out! That's the spirit of the season we love and admire.
Our hope is that you'll want to listen to our podcast now after reading this so you can hear it for REAL! This is our show in its entirety on KGB for Tuesday, 12-11-18. We love your show!
