Last week, I admonished those fans who only enjoy It’s Pronounced Jordan within the walls of The War Eagle Reader to tune in live each week (because there’s no reason to possibly spend two or more weeks or however long it takes me to post the latest episode unable to discuss Auburn underground history as intelligently as this show has made possible, and because some of the content that rides the air waves of Lee County like no other Auburn radio ever has actually been deemed too controversial to archive).
This week, I’m challenging those listeners who primarily enjoy IPJ via an antenna to reward their senses with the fullness of flavor that only YouTube or Vimeo can provide the crackerjack content in the form of corresponding visuals. Because despite my best efforts to limit the show to lessons most compatible with the oral tradition, sometimes you’ve just got to spend 15 minutes describing a magazine.
What a lot of people probable don’t understand is that when I’m sitting in Auburn Network Studios, I’m not just talking about Auburn history, I’m sitting next to Auburn history, breathing its aftershave, basking in its Grecian Formula glory, sharing its Hot Tamales. Yep, Ron Anders, co-host of The Drive, is that Ron Anders, as in Anders Bookstore Ron Anders, as in 1985 Auburn Cheeerleading Mic Man Ron Anders, as in 1985 Ole Miss game Auburn Football Illustrated Cover Boy / the sensitive Cobra Kai guy Ron Anders.
It is that last, powerful distinction that we explore in this episode of It’s Pronounced Jordan, that and— just as important—Shug’s unheralded heroics the beaches of of Normandy.
