Zombie watch in Lakeland Florida

WWAB-AM slipped off the Internet – It’s an AM radio station in Lakeland Florida playing Gospel Music.

The owner died earlier this year, but the story takes an unexpected twist.

legacy of Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes lived to age 87, and two years ago transferred the station to his children – on a 10 year note for $200k, presumably for tax reasons, perhaps to protect the station from health care bills,

The surprise is that Richard Hughes was the father of the late Jerry Hughes, who had a syndicated radio show called “Straight Talk” on the defunct Accent Radio Network. Jerry Hughes died in 2012. The Accent Radio Network became a zombie when a Federal judge ruled that the radio show “Daniel Chapter One” was making health claims, hiding behind religious freedom. The judge ruled the FDA has more power than Jesus.

    For those not schooled in the Bible, here is the Wikipedia summary of Daniel Chapter One, and its connection to selling unapproved health supplements to radio listeners because God said it is okay.

    In the third year of King Jehoiakim God allows Jerusalem to fall into the power of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.[Notes 1] Young Israelites of noble and royal family, “without physical defect, and handsome,” versed in wisdom and competent to serve in the palace of the king, are taken to Babylon to be taught the literature and language of the Chaldeans. Among them are Daniel and his three companions, who refuse to touch the royal food and wine for fear of defilement. Their overseer fears for his life in case the health of his charges deteriorates, but Daniel suggests a trial and the four emerge healthier than their counterparts from ten days of nothing but vegetables and water. They are allowed to continue to refrain from eating the king’s food, and to Daniel God gives insight into visions and dreams. When their training is done Nebuchadnezzar finds them ‘ten times better’ than all the wise men in his service and therefore keeps them at his court, where Daniel continues until the first year of King Cyrus.[13][Notes 2]
