Scared Monkeys Radio

For over a decade, Dana Pretzer has been doing his own brand of unique, entertaining, informed and refreshing style of talk radio. Talk radio where he allows the guest to talk, answer questions and inform the listeners on the important news stories of the day. Dana refers to it as "Main Street Media." We like to refer to it as a welcome and appreciated change.

Dana Pretzer brings his energetic yet relaxed demeanor and his well prepared yet spontaneous style of interviews to Scared Monkeys. Along with some of the biggest and most high-profile guests in the news today. Dana also brings a background in satellite radio and over 20 years in law enforcement. That, coupled with his relaxed yet professional and focused demeanor, makes him a natural behind the SMR microphone.

Dana and Scared Monkeys Radio focuses on Missing Persons, Unsolved Mysteries, Victims Rights, Politics, Crime & Punishment, Exploited Children, Entertainment, Technology and whatever the breaking and relevant stories are of the day. The stories that people want to talk about and hear.

  • Dana asks, is this a concern or an overreaction?

This is a bunch of crap. I remember watching cartoons as a child. The hunter chasing and shooting as Bugs Bunny with a gun.

I think what would have been better is a talk with him that you shouldn’t shoot people or be violent to people.

But a suspension is stupid. And an over reaction.

rediculous! Maybe the parent or relative is in the military…maybe the family likes to hunt.
When I was in school half the class would have been suspended, kids drew all kinds of stuff in their notebooks and on their papers all day long like that and none of them turned out to be people that did bad stuff!

My 12 year old nephew was assigned to read the short story “The Lottery” in school just two weeks ago. If you have not read this story, I don’t mean to give it away but it is about a town’s annual tradition of stoning someone to death and the town is very non-chalant (SP?) about it. Although a well written story – it is disturbing material especially for someone of my nephew’s age. My sister argued over the teachings of the story, but she was told that it was supposed to teach the students tolerance and other topics.

If my nephew had written this story or drew pictures depicting this, can you imagine the reprocussions by the school and other officials? We all played games shot-em-up games as kids, and the suspension is rediculous, but what happens when the school introduces forms of killing people?
