Recorded live on May 2, 2021 at the Kokomo chapter of Phi Delta Kappa Beta Nu at 2401 Saratoga Avenue, Kokomo, Indiana, 46902. (Hey! Did you know you can rent the Phi? It’s a great work space or public venue. Check them out.)
Sitting in on today’s episode is Ed Faunce and Jerry Mossburg.
Today’s episode is with Kokomo-based comedian Doug Arnold. He has appeared at venues throughout Indiana and will soon be performing in Austin, Texas and Reno, Nevada. He retired from Chrysler (okay, whatever car company but for Kokomo people it’s always going to be either Delco or Chrysler), giving him more time to perfect his stand-up comedy routines. Mr. Arnold has studied comedy with both Gerry Gobel and John Branyan.

Old guys and McDonald’s in Kokomo: Yes, it’s true. They congregate in McDonald’s. They used to congregate every morning at Richard’s, Shoney’s, Waffle House, and Denny’s, but all these places are gone now. They may also hang out early mornings at IHOP but it’s more expensive than McDonald’s and we cannot, at this point, confirm. (Tips welcome. Leave in comments, please.)
