Frank is excited about the upcoming season of Tennessee Scholars’ Bowl because 64 teams have signed up for the tournament. The first day of recording will be October 4, 2023. The episodes will be broadcast in January, February, and March, 2024.
One of Stacy’s PR clients is Dr. Jason Collier at Southern Dental Implant Center. Dr. Collier will give away a free dental makeover to someone who has been impacted by the suicide of a friend or relative or who has had suicidal thoughts themselves. Nominations will be accepted until November 18, 2023 (International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.) Nominations can be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 615-870-9088 between the hours of 9am-6pm, or by visiting https://tinyurl.com/thegiftofasmile. Include the nominee's name, location, contact information, and backstory. Because of the sensitivity of this subject, all nominees and the recipient of the smile giveaway will remain anonymous unless they would like their identity to be revealed.
The person selected for the makeover must be willing to travel to Memphis for treatment.
Frank and Stacy reminisce about the late Chef Walter Lambert, who used to do a daily cooking segment on WVLT. A few times Frank saw Chef Walter returning that day’s floral centerpiece to Food City in Bearden. Stacy’s grandmothers would write down Chef Walter’s recipes in their personal cookbooks.
Frank suggests that Stacy should visit the Silent Heroes Of The Cold War National Memorial at Mount Charleston, about 35 miles from downtown Las Vegas.
