*** Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, infection with salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses, such as arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Radio Sandy Springs – Boy Scout Hour

Posted on 25 October 2008 by Dan

At the beginning of October, there was some buzz around the internet Scouting community about “The Boy Scout Hour“. The Boy Scout Hour is a weekly radio show hosted by the Atlanta Area Council. The show is broadcast over the radio waves, but is also streamed online, and is now available for download online.

The Boy Scout Hour debuts on http://www.radiosandysprings.com, 1620 LPAM in Sandy Springs, GA. Hosted by the Atlanta Council of Boy Scouts this new radio show will be the only one of its kind in the world that is known of.

The show hosts and guests will discuss every aspect of Boy Scouting from merit badges to camping and all points between. Troops throughout the world are invited to listen, call in 404-943-1620 or email boyscouthour@radiosandysprings.com with questions, answers, or suggestions of topics.

Boy Scouts, from all over the world can listen live at http://www.radiosandysprings.com or listen to an archive of past shows posted within 48 hours on The Boy Scout Hour site on Radio Sandy Springs website.

October 4, 2008 The Boy Scout Hour, 3:00PM ET

Originally the recordings weren’t available online like announced, however the shows are now available, here is a small recap / review of the currently available recordings.

3rd Edition
October 18, 2008 Boy Scout Hour Show
The 3rd Edition of the Radio Sandy Springs Boy Scout Hour focused on one part of a trilogy of High Adventure Trips organized by the Atlanta Area Council geared towards Scouts who normally wouldn’t be able to attend one of these High Adventure Bases. The show’s hosts were Sam Nowell(?) a Scoutmaster of 10 years, and Byron King the Council’s Scout Reach Director. The show features discussion about the Council’s trip to Sea Base, the planning involved, their Out Island Adventure, and how the trip affected the involved Scouts. The show then switches into more of the ScoutReach program, how it removes the barriers to Scouting and how Scouting is reaching out to at risk kids.

This third edition seemed to flow much nicer than the 2nd episode, and it appears that the host was more familiar with the Scouting program.

2nd Edition
October 11, 2008 Boy Scout Hour Show
The 2nd Edition of the Radio Sandy Springs Boy Scout Hour features Andrew Hallberg the Marketing Executive for Atlanta Area Council, John Roland a District Executive, and a Webelos Scout. The main topic of the show was the Popcorn fundraiser, and explaining the sale to the non-Scout community. The Webelos Scout was the second highest seller for the Council last year and has already sold over $6,000 worth this year, with two weeks remaining. The show went on to discuss Scouting within the local Community, Scouting’s ties to religion, and the “uncoolness” of Scouting.

Unfortunately the radio host didn’t appear to be very familiar with the Scouting program. He also kept wanting to make the information larger than what his guests knew, asking questions about the National and International Scouting programs and their fundraisers. I’m sure this will get better as the radio station host and the Atlanta Area Council hosts refine the show and its direction.

Note this episode’s recording was cut off early.

1st Edition
October 04, 2008 Boy Scout Hour Show – Not available online.

Have you listed to the Boy Scout Hour? What are your impressions of the show?
