George Carlin Makes History

George Carlin was placed in the U.S. National Recording Registry this week for his 7 little dirty words bit.  For something to be considered it must be culturally or historically significant. George was certainly made it on the cultural angle and it changed everything in the entertainment. He was actually arrested at Summerfest in Milwaukee and charged with obscenity charges back in the 70's. He was definitely a man way ahead of his time!

Legendary baseball announcer Joe Garagiola passed away at the age of 90. He always called the Saturday game of the week with Tony Kubek and I watched it every week. He was truly a funny and witty guy. Thanks for the memories Joe!

Jimmy Buffett was in Havana, Cuba yesterday for the exhibition baseball game that the President also attended. It was the first time and American team played in Cuba since the 50's. People can fight the new Cuba policy or they can go along for a great ride. Isolationism is over folks.

Summerfest announced a bunch of side stage acts and they are pretty top notch. Among them is Willie Nelson, Roots, Stephen Marley, and the Hollywood Vampires which consists of Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp. I'm already picking out the dates we're going as it's only 3 months away!
