A new study looked at Google Trends data to figure out which Thanksgiving side dish is the most popular in every state. And the results might not be what you'd expect.
Mashed potatoes were the most popular . . . they won 10 states.
Stuffing or dressing, depending on what you call it, came in second, winning eight states.
And after that, there was a two-way tie, with mac and cheese and green bean casserole each winning seven states.
What is YOUR favorite side at Thanksgiving? Comment below!
One of our favorite activities each year! Be sure to tune in a week from today during Good Times in the Morning!

I caught myself today calling one of our musical artists "young man" and then it made me feel like I was on the verge of retirement. What is something you say that makes you feel old?
Halloween is just 24 days away, which seems hard to believe . . . especially if you haven't been outside since St. Patrick's Day. And a new poll of 2,000 Americans has determined the most iconic Halloween movies.
The movie "Halloween" was #1 with 46% of the vote, but 30 movies got at least 1%, or roughly 20 votes. The respondents COULD vote for multiple movies. Here's the list:
1. "Halloween", 1978, 46%
2. "A Nightmare on Elm Street", 1984, 24%
3. "Scream", 1996, 22%
4. "The Exorcist", 1973, 21%
5. "Beetlejuice", 1988, 21%
6. "Friday the 13th", 1980, 15%
7. "Carrie", 1976, 13%
8. "Rocky Horror Picture Show", 1975, 10%
9. "Child's Play", 1988, 9%
10. "The Shining", 1980, 7%

13. "Psycho", 1960, 5%
14. "A Quiet Place", 2018, 5%
15. "Night of the Living Dead", 1968, 5%
16. "It", 4% . . . They didn't say whether it was the original 1990 miniseries or the 2017 remake.
17. "The Blair Witch Project", 1999, 4%
18. "The Witch", 2015, 4%
19. "Saw", 2004, 4%

26. "The Last House on the Left", 1972, 2%.
27. "The Babadook", 2014, 2%

Labor Day dress code revealed !
What is this ?
Some foods don't do well in the microwave. Here are the five things you should never put in there, along with the BEST way to reheat each one . . .
1. Pizza. If it's one or two slices, reheat them in pan on the stove over medium heat. It's better than the microwave, because the crust gets crispy. If it's a lot of pizza, put it in the oven at 375 until the cheese looks nice and melted again.
2. Fried chicken. Instead of the microwave, use a baking sheet or a pan. Cover it with foil, and cook it in the oven at 375 for about 10 minutes. Then remove the foil and keep cooking it until the skin gets crispy again.
3. French fries. They'll never taste as good as they were fresh. But the best way to do it is in a pan with oil. Once they're hot, put them on a plate that's lined with paper towels to soak up the oil. And sprinkle some extra salt on if you want.
4. Spaghetti. Just toss it in a pot and cook it over medium heat. If it's too thick, add a little bit of water and some seasoning.
5. Steak. First, slice it up thin. Then just add oil to a pan and cook it over medium until it's hot enough.
I'm not sure we needed MORE proof that the era of the phone call is over, but here you go.
According to a new survey, the overwhelming majority of people would rather have you TEXT them than call them. The only exception is people over 55.
72% of people under 39 would rather you text, and so would 61% of people between 40 and 54.
For people over 55, 35% prefer a text, 49% prefer a call.
Also, for what it's worth, people who prefer calls over texts are almost three times less likely to have smartphones.
Really though, does this surprise ANYONE?
If you ever get bored answering when people ask you, "So, what do you do?" . . . this is a GREAT option.
Right now, people on Reddit are describing what they do for a living . . . but as a crime. Here are some of the best examples . . .
1. "I drive fast and disregard the rules of my road to break into people's homes and cause immense water damage. Afterwards I tear down their ceilings and drywall and leave without cleaning anything up." That's a . . . firefighter.
2. "I help people circumvent copyright by getting them loads of free books, DVDs, CDs, games, and any other media that's come out in the last hundred years." That's a . . . librarian.
3. "I force children to stay in a small room to do paperwork without paying them." That's a . . . teacher.
4. "I hand someone instruments to cut into an unconscious person." That's a . . . surgical assistant.
5. "I'm a drug dealer." That's a . . . pharmacist.

A huge thank you to the good folks at the Martin Cumberland Presbyterian Church for bringing several fans in the studios today for our fan drive. Don't forget, the annual Thunderbolt Radio fan drive is going on right now and you can bring new or gently used fans to our stations in Martin or Union City so we can help those in need during these hot summer days.
If time travel was possible, what would you rather do? Visit the future after all this nonsense is over, or opt for simpler times and visit the past? An online survey asked 4,000 people, and the most popular choice across all age groups was . . . the past.
65% of people who answered said they'd rather travel back in time. Only 35% would rather see what the future holds.
Young people were much more likely to say they'd travel to the future though. 47% of people under 25 said they'd check out the future, compared to less than a third of people over 50.
What about you? Which direction would you go?

QOTD: We all know that concerts, movies, and other large public gatherings are going to change. The question is HOW?
According to Britain's "Mirror" tabloid, the music industry is hoping to get concerts up and running by the fall . . . and they might do it by having fans walk through a DISINFECTANT MIST on their way into the venue.
Temperature-taking and masks could also be part of the new normal.
Would you go to a concert and get sprayed with a mysterious "disinfectant" mist?
QOTD: Do you still drink tap water, or is it only bottled water for you?
QOTD: Is "Dinner" considered LUNCH - or - SUPPER? Vote and comment below!
June 14 is Flag Day. Thunderbolt Studios in Martin and Union City, TN are accepting worn, torn and tired flags. Drop off your flags and we will see that your flag is retired respectively. Shown here are 95.1 and WCMT air personality Skylar MCCroskey and his cousin Brent Pearce displaying some of the flags that have been brought to our studios.
1957, June 17 ....1410 WCMT AM began broadcasting from a small studio on the Fulton Highway in Martin TN where we’ve been for the past 63 years.
1410 AM is one of twelve radio signals in our radio family that serves West Tennessee and West Kentucky.
JT Sudbury filed for the original radio station license for Martin and we’ve been broadcasting ever since.
Twenty two years later Mr Sudbury sold the radio stations to Thunderbolt Broadcasting because he wanted the radio stations to remain in local hands.
Harold T. Brundige, a respected attorney in Martin, formed Thunderbolt and since 1979 Thunderbolt has been locally owned and operated.
There have only been two antenna towers on the property. A second tower went up in 1989 to replace the first ￼and added more height.
City of Martin alderman Billy McAdoo was the first voice on WCMT and his first word was “hello!” Since that time many voices have been on the WCMT microphones through the years...
In 1959 Dwight “Duke” Drumm became the station manager, a position he would hold until he retired 20 years later.
Through the years public officials, children, quartets, politicians, ag leaders, university officials and thousands of others have used our microphones to communicate their message to our listeners. Advertisers have found WCMT stations to be extremely effective in getting their message to their customers which has allowed us to prosper through the years! ￼
WCMT has provided thousands of hours of high school and college sports coverage, election return results, broadcast of parades, we aired forums, religious broadcasts, “live on the scene” news reports, breaking weather ￼￼and many other events including coverage of county fairs and even a milking contest!
WCMT is privileged to serve our loyal listeners and advertisers and we are honored to have your support through these 63 years.
We believe our Thunderbolt Radio family is one of the best in America in serving our communities and our listeners.
Because of our ￼ incredible community service the National Association of Broadcasters presented WCMT with its coveted “Crystal” award for outstanding community service. The station has also been a Marconi finalist for Outstanding Radio.
We thank you for ￼ listening and God bless you for listening to WCMT and our other Thunderbolt radio stations!

Tropical Storm Cristobal is moving north across the Gulf of Mexico. This storm will make landfall Sunday evening and will continue north along and west of the Mississippi River through early next week. While the storm will be weakening after moving inland, impacts are still possible across the Mid-South Monday and possibly on Tuesday.
The primary concern will be the potential for heavy rainfall. Widespread rainfall amounts in excess of 2 inches are possible with some areas along and west of the Mississippi River picking up 4-6 inches. This may result in flash flooding and could also affect the water levels on the Mississippi river and its tributaries. The heaviest rainfall is anticipated on Monday.
Gusty east winds will be possible as the storm nears Monday, shifting more southerly Monday night. Gusts to around 35 mph are possible, especially in the delta counties. A Wind Advisory may eventually be needed.
Finally, with the storm staying primarily to our west, the Mid-South will be in a favorable location for tropical tornadoes. These tornadoes are often brief and can spin-up with little notice. The greatest threat for tornadoes will be in northwest Mississippi and east-central Arkansas on Monday, but could linger into Tuesday. NWS
