Ron & Terry “Morning Sickness” shirts & mugs help Crusade for Children

Ron Clay, Patti Metts, Terry Meiners (1983)

The online shop Uncommonwealth of Kentucky is raising money for the WHAS Crusade for Children through June 4th with special edition throwbacks: RON & TERRY “Morning Sickness” shirts and mugs.

Ron Clay & Terry Meiners owned the Louisville airwaves in the 1980s with a no-holds-barred satirical, sarcastic broadcast party every morning on WLRS-102. Clay, the jaded hipster, and Meiners, the smart aleck preppie, clowned on politicians, celebrities, and local bigshots with razor sharp wit and no apologies.

Their imaginary friends like Jeff the ignorant producer, Floyd & Ernie Knurd, Wino Jimmy, Old Guy, Gertrude Lovelace, and Troy Liplock brought con men, wild women, and free whiskey to juice the hazy studio audience.

In spite of their devotion to debauchery, Ron & Terry still found time for sensitive public service duties at the Home for Unwed Mothers and the Children Without Foreheads Foundation.

Celebrate their legacy with these Morning Sickness shirts, available now.

Regional radio has never quite been the same since Terry the Traitor ran away to do nerd radio and Ron returned to a California hippie commune.

Louisville is much better without them. Once the police chief chased Ron & Terry out of town, the volume of ubiquitous misspelled graffiti plummeted.

The Uncommonwealth of Kentucky would like to pay tribute to Ron & Terryโ€™s โ€œMorning Sicknessโ€ show on WLRS with this throwback shirt. Seventy percent of the profit from the sale of each item will go to the WHAS Crusade for Children.

When the curtain closes on this yearโ€™s Crusade, it does on this offer, too. So, get yours now — celebrate the great memories you have of Ron & Terry and support the WHAS Crusade for Children.

Also available is the “Morning Sickness” mug. Bottoms up, y’all.

This t-shirt is everything you’ve dreamed of and more. It feels soft and lightweight, with the right amount of stretch. It’s comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
