The Specialist Radio Hour
Summary: Some people are born with the “gift” to inspire us to reach our potential. Chris Kettner, aka “The Specialist” a Naval veteran, is one of those unique individuals. Born in Richmond, Virginia, this gifted communicator hit the ground running after proudly serving his country. In a very short time he had become one of the most prolific and successful door to door salesmen in the U.S. With over 40 years of one on one sales experience, he has been recognized with numerous awards, including 5 “man of the year awards” (3 consecutively). As a published author, he penned the highly respected trade manual “The Sales and Management Bible”. He jokingly quips “I have personally interviewed over 250,000 families in their homes, and that doesn’t count the 2 million that didn’t let me in the door. “The Specialist” nickname was given to him over the years for his unique style of teaching, delivery, and attention to minute details.
We are now in the longest partial government shutdown in US history and Senator Lindsay Graham urges the President to reopen the government and then declare a national emergency. The Specialist sounds off on this and much much more. Award winning journalist, Joe Strupp, calls in and discusses his new book, Killing Journalism: How Greed, Laziness (and Donald Trump) Are Destroying News, and How We Can Save It. Listen in on a very unbiased and informative conversation from 2 sides of the spectrum.
Listen in on The Specialist Radio Hour today as Chris discusses the first nominee for the dumbass of the year for his downplayed comments on the crisis at the border. We know there is, in fact, a crisis so when will the left get on board? Jessie Lee Perez, author of Color By Design, calls in to Mainstreet USA to let us know what is meant by her slogan “We Speak Color”.
The new format is underway as The Specialist highlights back to back guests, one from the political world discussing the Deep State, withdrawal from Syria and the shutdown and being true to himself, Chris makes his way to Mainstreet USA to speak with antique extraordinaire, Ken Dufty from Clocks and Stuff. Fabulously entertaining and fun show.
The Specialist and Kenny Golden bring you an exciting 3 hour presentation responding to the President’s address from the Oval Office last night. One thing that both can agree on is that Trump was well poised in his demeanor but could’ve done better at driving home the issue at hand. Chris and Kenny also weigh in on many other topics such as Mitt Romney, the ongoing shutdown, Russia, Syria and China. This is a show that you don’t want to miss.
Today on The Specialist Radio Hour, Chris opens the show with comments on Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg as her failing health causes her to miss Supreme Court Arguments for the first time in 25 years. The Specialist wishes her well but if she is forced to retire or passes away this will open the door to a possible 3rd Supreme Court Justice pick by Trump! On Mainstreet USA, Chris interviews James Goi Jr best selling author of How to Attract Money Using Mind Power. A fascinating interview.
The Specialist returns in the new year announcing a new format that will be sure to keep you tuned in. Although we have entered a new year, the same story continues as the government shutdown is in it’s 3rd week with no end in sight. Chris brings you news of the cancelled women’s March, Mitt Romney and Elizabeth Warren while friend of the show, Franco Nazario, stops in to discuss these topics and much more.
It’s the last show of the year and The Specialist starts off by going around the globe with wacky New Year’s resolutions and traditions. We then get breaking news as Trump issues an ultimatum to the Democrats…fund the wall or he will shut down the Southern border entirely and stop aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Chris says to let it happen because we need to put Americans first. Listen in and have a safe and Happy New Year from everyone here at Stars and Stripes Radio.
What were your conversations like during the holidays? Listeners write in and let us know that some dinners were as divisive as the country while others avoided hot topics in any way that they could. Today, The Specialist dishes out the main course of your holiday conversation.
It’s the day after Christmas and The Specialist shares his experience and his presents, one of which he brought to the studio. He also gives the news and tells different Christmas stories from around the globe. Listen in for this and to hear what gift he brought into the studio.
We have 4 days until Christmas and The Specialist is spreading cheer all throughout the show. President Trump can cheer for his 5.7 billion dollar border wall fund passing through the House of Representatives but it now has to pass through the Senate. With the partial government shutdown looming, the Senate must make a vital decision. Listen in as Chris gives his thoughts on this and much more. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all from everyone here at Stars and Stripes National Radio.
The highly anticipated sentencing of Michael Flynn has been postponed, much to The Specialist’s dismay. So today Chris discusses the top 5 issues that the Democratic party will focus on in the coming term….YOU WONT LIKE IT. Also, will President Trump use his veto power over the wall? Michelle Decker from Dave’s Pets makes a visit to Mainstreet USA and reveals, exclusively to the show, some exciting things that her company will do in the coming year.
It was an exciting day in the news here on The Specialist Radio Hour! In breaking stories, President Trump says that he has found other ways to obtain the 5 billion for the wall and will NOT shut down the government, meanwhile, he has agreed to dissolve his Trump Foundation, under court supervision, amid a lawsuit accusing that the charity funds were used for self dealing and political gain. Special friend and correspondent, Kenny Golden calls the show and chimes in on many different events. A must listen!
For those who hate Trump his popularity is growing, as shown by his approval rate rising and The Specialist says that it’s because he fights for America. The fight boils down to two sides: Trump fighting for the American people while Pelosi and Schumer fight for the illegal immigrants. It’s simple, which side are you on? A partial government shutdown is imminent if the Democrats do not cooperate. Listen in as The Specialist talks about who will be affected by the shutdown and many other topics.
Democracy is in chaos! All over the world the West is in trouble! Many Western countries are looking globalism in the face while their people are resorting to tribalism. Meanwhile in America, Michael Cohen claims that he is now coming clean and is spilling the tea on President Donald J. Trump. Another exciting installment of The Specialist Radio Hour.
Today The Specialist says that it is very chilling to think that anyone would want to control the freedom of speech. Ted Lieu, a Democratic politician from California wants to do just that! Chris talks about the interview that this elected official did on CNN where he says that he would “love to control speech”. On Main Street USA we had Philip Wilson from the Book Bin stop by and share books on the meaning of Christmas. He also reads an excerpt from local author Karen Foley’s book, “Santa’s Sick of Cookies”. An informative but fun morning!
