Of course, you must listen for the special ending 😉
For the past 23 years, Gunner Richard Muth has educated thousands of teenagers on the North Shore as an Iinstructor for the MCJROTC at Gloucester High School (aside from a year or two in Lynn).
This is his final year as an Educator/Instructor/Mentor at GHS. Prior to this, he served his country in the United States Marine Corps for 20+ years as an Infantry Instructor before retiring. Not knowing what to expect teaching high school students, he embarked on a decades-long journey that has left an impressionable impact on students and colleagues alike. B-Side even got a little help honoring Gunner from some friends.
B-Side sits down with Richard Muth to talk about his 23 years as an educator; what it has meant to him, and what it is like to teach teenagers of Gloucester. He even confirms that B-Side did, in fact, throw a desk (but don’t worry—the statute of limitations is over).
Gunner Muth would also like to invite the public to join them in celebration on Thursday May 16th at 6pm in the auditorium for the ROTC Awards Night to honor those students for their achievements for the school year.
It was Military Appreciation Month as well as National Teacher Appreciation Week during this recording.
Alicia Unleashed would like to also thank to following for their participation in this recording:
Rick Moore, Lisa Cusumano Gray, Kayla Pinkham, Kara Wagner, Sarah Bondarev, Jen Duston, Jessica Gross, Aaron Smith, Annette Parco, Chris Severance, Jon Blair, and Peter Cannavo.
I cannot begin to express the amount of gratitude I have for you as an educator because, let’s be real, you were unlike any other teacher I’d ever had. You were patient, tolerant, funny, and had different, undetectable ways of teaching us life lessons. While I was part of your formative years when you were getting your feet wet as a “teacher of teens,” and we tested your limits every chance we could get, you are still the same Gunner you were in ’96. The impact that you have left on your students runs deep. Without you, I believe I never would have survived through or graduated from high school. Thank you, Gunner, for your Service, both to our Country and to us Students.
Crease that Uni one last time and then hang it up. Congratulations on your retirement; you’ve earned it.

LET’S GET IN TO IT! We had probably the most bubbly, energetic, smiley (we know you can’t see that) guest ever on this episode! Jess A, a Nurse in the NICU Unit! She talks to us about how at young age she knew that she wanted to be a Nurse (and a spy). She comes from a long family line of Nurses, so it pretty much is in her blood. She explains her process of becoming a Nurse, from going to a Nursing College (straight out the gate) to now being in this career for 11 years! She takes us through a typical day is like for her (which there isn’t a typical day) also SHE WORKS NIGHT SHIFT? She talks about how incredible the people she works with are, they are just not co-workers, they are a team, a second family. She talks about some of her best moments on the job and some more difficult moments. She was great to have! Thank you for all that you do Jess and your team!
End song: Aretha Franklin-Respect. Sing among heavens Queen.
