Last time on B-MO in the MO’rning – B-MO welcomed our 2020 Mississippi Songwriter of the Year winners Chapel Hart to the show as they discussed their big concert that kicks off this years Mississippi Songwriter of the Year at The MAX in Meridian and what it their experience was like in not only winning the award, but recording in Muscle Shoals with Billy Lawson and the obstacles they overcame with the pandemic and touring. Today also marked the first installment of a new segment on the show called “Kosciusko Questions” which we are sure will be expanded to Central Mississippi questions as his wife Yvonne is getting settled in to her new surroundings.
In todays segment which can be seen in the video below, Yvonne tries to tackle the puzzling nature of the lil red caboose on the square in Kosciusko and the nature of whether there were train tracks that ran there or if it was just a display! Luckily KAP Executive Director was able give her the right answer (which B-MO knew she wouldn’t believe him if he had said it. B-MO knew the correct answer mind you, but anytime you can blame the “train people” why not, right?
The video footage of “Kosciusko Questions with Yvonne”
Hits & Mrs. – While some listeners know or have heard of B-MO’s wife “Yvonne”, they don’t know of her 12 years of appearing on the air with him over his career. His numerous phone calls to him as are all calls, were recorded and during his final year in California B-MO put together a parody of them called “This is Yvonne: The Greatest Hits and Mrs.” The snippet includes audio of her paid adoring fans talking about how wonderful she is, her singing various Salt-N-Pepa and nursery rhymes while on hold and a look into her nocturnal activities with her parents and finally, the tragic occurrence when their son Dylan ate her King Sized Kat Kat candy bar. We present for your listening pleasure (sarcasm) for the first time….“This is Yvonne: The Greatest Hits & Mrs.”
“Kosciusko Questions with Yvonne” – While the audio footage from this conversation may not be as humorous as the video, B-MO and Breck tried to inform her of the correct answer, she didn’t want any part of it.
“You have questions, we have answers” – To ensure that Yvonne had heard the proper answer to her “Kosciusko Question” B-MO thought he would call her and things got a little “heated”
Chapel Hart, the 2020 Mississippi Songwriter of the Year winner will be appearing in concert at this years event and they took time out of their current tour schedule to come on the show this morning to discuss what it’s been like for them professionally.
What it meant for them to win the award last year…..
Chapel Hart discusses the experience of Muscle Shoals and recording with Billy Lawson and at Wish Bone Studios. How they were able to remain active during the pandemic and their approach to writing music….
Thursday June 17th Recap – Special thanks to KAP Executive Director Darren Milner for stopping by to answer Yvonne’s Kosciusko Question and thanks to “Brother Breck” for additional info on the Caboose click here.

Last time on BMO in the MO’rning – Love was in the air and so was a lot of WINNING as BMO had 2 pairs of tickets for the 56th Anniversary Dixie National Livestock Show and Rodeo.

“Brother Breck” took a shot at going the distance with the 8 Second Ride but wasn’t quite sure he was ready…

Last time on BMO in the MO’rning – It marked the anniversary date of the premiere for one of BMO’s favorite television shows, The Dukes of Hazzard. The series which ran from 1979-1985 introduced viewers to “The Duke Boys”, BMO’s first crush “Daisey Duke” (aka Catherine Bach) and BMO’s first love….that 1969 Dodge Charger, the “General Lee”! The General sparked a friendly argument about which Hollywood Hot Rod was the greatest of all time as “Brother Breck” chose K.I.T.T from Knight Rider. So we asked for your votes as these machines battled out it in something we called “Car Wars.’ It was The General Lee vs K.I.T.T. vs The Bandit (from Smokey & The Bandit) “Bullitt” from Steve McQueen’s motion picture called The Bullitt and Doc Brown’s DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future.
BMO and Breck got things started off…

Last time on BMO in the MO’rning – It was championship Sunday and the match up for the NFL’s biggest game of the year as BMO’s hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Kansas City Chiefs in a regular season rematch that the Bucs lost by 3. What makes this special for BMO is that it marks the first time a hosting city for the game has had the home team playing in it! So things got off to an early start as “the Saints” fans BMO works with had to tease him about being the “lone wolf” when it came to being a BUCS fan.
First “Brother Breck” had to bring up BMO “representin’ his Bucs with a red polo he had on under his jacket…
Then our resident “Genius” and “Poet” aka the Award Winning Chris Davis penned a poem for the occasion…
Then it was on to giving away tickets for the upcoming SPRA Rodeo Finals on February 5th at the Neshoba Coliseum, as Angie Shuler was our first winner of the day…
Then BMO and the boys opened up the phone lines (against BMO’s better judgement lol) and asked you “What was something messed up you did as a kid? ….
