It’s springtime and thoughts are turning to…infidelity!

With countless celebrity role models, cheating is more popular than ever--up to 60% of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe.

Men can’t help it. Most men think monogamy is something you make tables out of.

Here’s what other people are saying…

Thou shall not commit adultery.

The 7th Commandment

Adultery is the application of democracy to love.

H.L. Mencken

One Man’s folly is often another man’s wife.

Helen Rowland

I have committed adultery in my heart many times. God knows I will do this and forgives me.

Jimmy Carter

If adults commit adultery, do infants commit infantry?

Mac Rebennack

When he's late for dinner, I know he's either having an affair or is lying dead in the street. I always hope it's the street.

John has worked as a professional bassist for 20 years, including a 15 year stint as Musical Director of the Mountain Stage radio program. John has been at KNKX since 1999 where he hosts “All Blues”, is producer of the BirdNote radio program, and co-hosts “Record Bin Roulette”. John is also the recording engineer for KNKX “In-Studio Performances”. Not surprisingly, John's main musical interests are jazz and blues, and he is still performing around Seattle.
John Maynard started working in radio in the seventies as a DJ at Seattle’s KJR AM which at the time was the dominant AM station in the Seattle market. After a brief stint as a restaurateur and night club owner, Maynard returned to radio with Robin Erickson, creating the hugely popular “Robin and Maynard Show.” In the more than 20 years under that marquee, Maynard flew with the Blue Angels, piloted the Goodyear Blimp, sang with Donny Osmond and hung out in a Universal Studios bar with Kojak (Telly Savalas).
