SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – As hundreds of people celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery on Route 1 Thursday, popular NJ 101.5 FM radio personalities Jeff Deminski and Bill Doyle provided listeners with a live play-by-play.

Deminski and Doyle DJ the afternoon drive time show from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on New Jersey 101.5 FM, a Trenton-based show transmitted statewide.

On Thursday the pair brought their live show to the Celtic-themed pub and restaurant to join hundreds of revelers celebrating the holiday.

Owner Raj Patel said that there was a pretty good wait for a table as the facility filled up in the afternoon, with more people coming in as the workday ended.

The restaurant in the South Brunswick Square Mall in Monmouth Junction opened last summer, making it the first St. Patrick’s Day party as well as many sports enthusiasts enjoying the first round of the NCAA’s March Madness on the multiple television screens.

The live radio broadcast featured callers from all over New Jersey and some games for those in attendance at the facility.

Later in the day, the station held a “Freak Show” with participants showing off odd talents from tying a knot in a cherry stem with their tongue, to doing impressions to opening beer bottles with their teeth.

The winner of the contest, Heather Marshall, 25, of Whitehouse Station, received $200.

Marshall did a creepy little girl’s voice and giggle that she said she uses to scare patrons of a haunted hayride.

“I started working at my college’s haunted house and really liked scaring people,” Marshall, who works as a lab technician during the day, said. “Which is funny because I don’t like watching horror movies or going on haunted hayrides.”

She said she was able to adjust her work schedule during the fall to do her “scare acting” on the hayrides.

“It is really different (than my job),” she said.

The youngest contestant in the show was John Fram, 11, of Sayreville.

Fram said that he attended the party to meet the radio hosts.

“It made my day, it was really awesome,” he said.

Fram tri-folded his tongue into a “W” and wiggled his ears without touching them for the contest.

He also did a series of impressions including the Joker from the Batman animated series and video games.

Fram said he liked those versions, voiced by “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill better than either Heath Ledger or Jack Nicolson from the live action movie franchise.

“(Hamill) makes me think of Joker,” Fram said. “He becomes the Joker.”

The pub will continue celebrating throughout the weekend as the college basketball tournament finishes the first and second rounds.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)


How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.
