We played for the 80th Birthday of the Highland Park American Legion Post in Des Moines. It was also the 90th Birthday of the American Legion itself.
Memories of our band as we first formed. Most of our band had only started their instruments a couple of months before.
Only a year after our formation, we got to perform at Hy Vee Hall full of thousands of kids on New Year's Eve. Hundreds came and listened at our stage. It was NOISY!
We got to play for Awanas kids at First Open Bible Church in Des Moines. Cool little stage they had built.
This was the most remarkable ordination I had ever heard of: Lester Small ordained himself! Several pastors attended.
Movies! The Uncle Ed. Show (one hour) Episodes
"Judge Not, that ye be not judged" Matthew 7:1 is the favorite verse quoted by people who hate hearing the Bible quoted. Atheists think it only applies to Christians who express opinions about wickedness. They don't think it applies to themselves when they file lawsuits against Christian speech and drag Christians before real judges! Here is the context of the verse.
Psychiatrist Meets Match! Mr. Psychiatrist, (played by Uncle Ed.), is processing a little girl brought in to gather evidence for court against her parents who have been teaching her politically unacceptable Christianity. But the little girl turns the tables on him with embarrassing questions about the very legitimacy of Psychiatry, based on reason and the Bible.
Leah B., Future Astrophysicist Leah is gentle and soft spoken on the surface. But evolution rhetoric is not safe around this 13-year-old astronomer and scientist!

Recorded on Good Friday: Discussion of the Iowa Supreme Court’s ruling requiring sodomite marriage. Are they really “born that way”? Where does sodomite desire come from, exactly? Why is God so down on it? Is the Iowa Supreme Court really smarter than God? Does it really care about us, and about sodomites, more than God? Show #730, first aired on April 18, 2009 AD.

Mystery Woman from Australia, and Galaxy She’s not from Mexico. She came from Australia to marry a fellow in Des Moines. She didn’t come to an emergency hospital room to have a baby. She didn’t come to get on welfare. But the USCIS process, even for a white rich girl, is far from clear or honest. It ruins good people. Galaxy is a young girl whose family came from Mexico. First aired July 18, 2009. Show #742.
Mystery Woman, and Galaxy, Part 2. First aired July 25, 2009. Show #743.
Uncle Ed. interviewed on KCCI TV in Des Moines, and KGAN TV in Cedar Rapids. Except that in this show, you get to see the entire one hour interview, from which their 2 minute interviews were excerpted! Interesting to compare! That’s right, ol’ Uncle Ed. had HIS OWN camera peering down on the big cameras. Topic: Dave Leach's friendship with Scott Roeder, who shot and killed infamous Wichita late term abortionist George Tiller about May 31, 2009. Show #737, first aired June 13, 2009 AD.
Antif (spelled backwards) the censored movie Here’s the movie by Dutch legislator Geert Wilde r which got him evicted from the legislature and threated with death by Moslem Imams, just because it stated a few facts about Moslem designs on Western civilization. A lot of Moslems aren’t really big into the Freedom of Speech (to criticize even church and state) thing.
Featured TV Shows: Immigration Game, the Movie Download and/or watch this 108 Mg, 45 minute movie (a .wmv file) of Des Moines immigration attorney Ferzana Hashmi's first life-size Immigration Game. Families from four countries competed: Norway and Mexico came illegally, while China and Kenya came legally. The first family to reunite in the U.S. (after years of waiting for the Head of Household to come alone and become a citizen) in less than 10 years wins. Kenya was doing fine until, almost to the end, the Head of Household committed suicide. China, after a false start (the first head of household gave up waiting and took the easy route, divorcing her spouse to marry a citizen) finally made it, but only with some cheating by the immigration attorney! Poor China kept drawing lethal cards. Mexico and Norway didn't have a chance. They kept dying or going to jail just crossing the border. It doesn't take very many deaths of heads of households from crossing the border, to pretty well ruin the chances of family reunification in the U.S. 58 minute show:
Meat and Sodomy Sodomites say “So what if the Bible says sodomy is an abomination. It says eating pork is an abomination too – are Christians going to stop eating pork?” This is an inquiry into whether God is consistently smart. What did He mean by the word “abomination”? Does He indeed have anything against eating pork? What is so “abominable” about either sodomy or eating pork? Show #741. First aired July 11, 2009 AD.
John Brown: Terrorist or Hero?John Brown raided a federal arsenal in 1859, hoping to distribute weapons to slaves so they could revolt and set themselves free. How does he compare to Scott Roeder who, the first of this month, shot and killed the infamous late term abortionist, George Tiller? Guests: Roger Caliger, Bob Rubenking. Subject: John Brown, hero or terrorist? Short feature: Donna Holman, telling about Dan’s arrest. First aired June 27, 2009 AD. Show #739.
John Brown Museum Jordan House, in Des Moines, is one of the "stations" in the "underground railroad". the network of safe houses that protected slaves fleeing from the southern slave states to Canada. John Brown stayed there on his last run of slaves from Missouri, before he attacked Harper's Ferry, hoping to set off a slave revolt across the South. Was Brown right or wrong? This show is a tour of this museum, and a conversation with the museum's directors, establishing many facts, but failing to persuade, cajole or trick them into taking a position.

Johnny and the Judge MP3 The story of a boy who finds the Bible more of an adventure than a comic, and takes the world along.

Style: a cross between a march, a concert band, and an old story-telling country song. Instrumentation: Vocal, guitar, trumpets, clarinet, sax, violin, drums, bass, flute, all by Dave Leach
