BOB listener Derek Dilly told a wonderful story this morning about how he is trying to help a family and sacrificing his own Garth Brooks experience to help raise some money. Derek gave up his tickets, The Fargo Holiday Inn donated a room and more, and The Boiler Room donated dinner. Derek put it all together and is auctioning the package on Ebay - with 100% of money going to help the family of the young woman that was struck and killed by a train in Wadena recently to help them raise funds for a funeral.

At BOB 95 we believe in PAYING IT FORWARD - and we were so impressed on what Derek was doing that we wanted to be sure that he still got to see his favorite performer GARTH! So we replaced his tickets and the Fargo Holiday Inn is donating a room!

Thanks Derek for helping others - and enjoy the show!

Homeless Nashville man buys house after selling papers for five years

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Nashville man who has been a vendor selling a non-profit paper on homelessness for over five years and, during that time, has saved almost every dollar he made.

Mario Martinez hasn't owned a home in six years. But last week, he closed on a house.

still0419_000061

"I'm just so grateful," Martinez told WKRN. "There are so many people who believed in me."

One of those people is realtor Brian Kemp, who met Martinez on the street corner while he was selling "The Contributor."

"He didn't know me but I knew him because of Bear," said Kemp. Bear is Martinez's Great Pyrenees.

"Everybody notices him!" said Martinez. "He's the one who made the money; I just collected it for him."

Martinez did collect and save that money until he had enough for a down payment. When he couldn't find anyone to take his home search seriously, Kemp stepped in.

"Mario helped me restore my faith in the people that are standing out on the street asking for money," Kemp said. "I won't look the other way anymore."

Before last week, Martinez lived in a trailer that sat in an abandoned barn with no water or heat.

He will move into his 2,500 square foot home on three acres in Charlotte, Tennessee, this weekend.

"Once I get a stove, I'm going to learn how to cook. That's what I'm gonna do," Martinez said.

He told News 2 he was laid off from his job six years ago and his home was foreclosed on.

"So we fell on hard times, but now those hard times are over," Martinez said while tearing up. "The kids and I, we're gonna have a home. I'm so excited. I worked hard for this."

It seems there are two trends in music right now. The first being that artists are releasing surprise albums, the second is artists crossing genres and experimenting with new sounds.

Taste Of Country reports that Beyonce released a new album called Lemonade late Saturday night after an HBO special; and what is also getting attention is track six, titled Daddy Lessons may not be straight Country Music, the song definately has a distinguishable country sound to it by sound and with lyrics that "could just as easily come from a new song from Miranda Lambert or Carrie Underwood, both of whom have left an ever-growing body count of ill-intentioned men in their wake at country radio".

The amount of positive reviews Beyonce is getting for her take on Country Music is huge on social media- Just Check Twitter

Ultimately, you be the judge! Listen to the song and let us know what you think

Honest teenager returns Thor's wallet, gets $10,000 reward

Honesty really does pay off.
An American teenager has been rewarded for returning Chris Hemsworth's wallet, which the Australian actor lost while he was dining with his family in a "rough" area of Los Angeles.
"I left my wallet on the table, and thought I'm never going to get it back, I'm never going to see it again," Hemsworth said on the The Ellen Show on Monday.
That forgotten wallet was a surprise discovery for 17-year-old Tristin Budzyn-Baker, who was shocked to find who it actually belonged to. "I looked up at my mom, and was like 'mom, do you know who this is?'" Budzyn-Baker said. "We found Thor's wallet."
Budzyn-Baker then wrote a letter to Hemsworth's management saying that he found the Australian actor's wallet, while sneaking in a request for tickets The Ellen Show for his mom, which Hemsworth was due to appear on shortly.
Budzyn-Baker got tickets to The Ellen Show as a reward for his honesty and was seated in the audience with his mom as Hemsworth retold the story. The teenager later joined Hemsworth on stage to receive even more of a bonus for his good deed.
"I expected [the wallet] was going to be empty, and all the cash was in there, so I want to give you the cash — there's a little extra in there," Hemsworth said, handing over a wad of cash to a thrilled Budzyn-Baker.
It didn't stop there, Hemsworth also wrote a special letter of recommendation for Budzyn-Baker, a boy scout, for his bid to earn the top scouting rank Eagle Scout. Then host Ellen DeGeneres decided to reward the grateful teenager by giving Budzyn-Baker a further US$10,000.

"You're an amazing young man, and thank you for being such a honest guy," DeGeneres said. Not a bad prize pool for stumbling across a random wallet.
It's proof that honesty is the best policy.

From Huffington Post:

Al Sanders, 53, of Seattle is selling his lifetime collection of 5,000 comic books to pay for his
daughter's college education.
"As all parents who have college-age kids, we started putting together what it was going to cost
and what we needed to do," the doting dad told ABC News of his decision to watch his collection go ka-boom.
"You start looking at those options you have, and my comic books were an option. That's when I
looked at their value, and I'm now trying to find a good home for them."
Sanders plans of toting his hulk-like collection, which includes vintage copies of Iron Man, X-Men, Batman
and Luke Cage, Hero for Hire, to Emerald City Comicon this weekend in hopes of selling them to
someone who will care for them as tenderly as Spider Man watched out for Mary Jane.
Before Sanders met his wife and had his daughter, Rose, comics were his first true love.
He has been collecting them since grade school and, when in college, pulled a few joker stunts to pay for them.
"For a while, I sold plasma to buy comic books," he told CBS's KENS5. "If I wanted to keep collecting,
[I] had to make a sacrifice … you sold it twice a week, you got $25, $30, that could buy a few comic books."
Sanders keeps the books in 10 large boxes, which are able to hold about 500 copies each —
a few of which he had lying around when he first met his wife.
"My wife, when we met, she saw them and asked what they were," Sanders told ABC. "And I said,
'They're my comic books and they come with me.' She allowed me to keep those, but the
Sports Illustrateds had to go."
Now the books have to go as well, so that 16-year-old Rose, who Sanders described to
CBS as "the prettiest flower in my garden," can go to Fisk University in Nashville this fall.
"She started school a year early and she's graduating high school a year early," the proud pop told CBS.
Though it will be hard for Sanders to turn the page and start a new chapter in his life, he makes
one thing abundantly clear: with great love, comes great responsibility.

RALPHIE MAY’S FARGO THEATRE COMEDY EVENT THIS EVENING POSTPONED

-JADE PRESENTS WILL ANNOUNCE NEW DATE ASAP


Comedian Ralphie May just announced that he is postponing his show at The Fargo Theatre this evening. Jade Presents will announce a new date as soon as possible. Patrons are instructed to hold onto tickets until a re-scheduled date is announced.


Ralphie stated, “I am postponing my shows in Fargo, Sioux Falls and Burnsville out of respect for the Native American community and safety for all parties. A video that surfaced on YouTube hurt and offended many people and I am truly sorry. I thought I was a well-read, educated man. I know nothing. I’m a product of mass media and the US public school system. I have learned so much this week and I want to learn more. My eyes are open and I hope to be a conduit for things that we are not taught.”


Ralphie has already spoken to one of the leaders of the American Indian Movement and he will be speaking with them again this week. He plans to return to Fargo to perform for fans as soon as possible. He has pleased crowds for over 25 years and he wants this to be no exception.

One restaurant in India is making a difference for the hungry population of Kerala.

The tea café Pappadavada has installed a 24-hour running refrigerator open to those in need of a meal. The restaurant's Facebook page issued a message to their followers asking them to help stock the fridge with any leftovers they can spare.

The owner of the café, Minu Pauline, believes that not only will the installment be able to feed the homelesscommunity in Kerala, but it will also teach citizens not to waste food or meals.

The fridge has been fondly dubbed Nanma Maram, meaning Tree of Goodness.

Pappadavada plans to keep the fridge stocked with at least 50 meal packets a day along with the meals that their diners donate.

Previously, we have reported on the same community kindness sprouting in Spain, and also in Saudi Arabia.
