Steve Goodman will always be with us but the marquee has changed to now feature one of his best friends---John Prine. In the book you will be hearing much more about on TRADITIONS in the last week of June (6.24)and July (7.1) many tales will be told of their relationship--Steve's magnanimity, Prine's creativity, and much more.

If you viewed some of the Steve Goodman pieces this last week you surely saw his dynamism as a stage performer. What you did not see is his interaction with people. He seemed to know everyone in the music "business" (though David Buskin says--."...never use those two words together". Steve knew him as well). Now view the creative writing talents of John Prine for a time.

If you click over to the Playlists you will find some things relevant to Sunday Simcha. Molly Picon is always a favorite====try the trailer at the bottom of the frames.

On THE ALMOST DAILY ROOSTER you will find, for a brief period, Amos N' Andy. Was there ever more of a Kingfish than Tim Moore? He was the embodiment of George "Kingfish" Stevens. Brilliant acting by brilliant artists that is, sadly, banned from the air-waves for the most inane reasoning. More insights and fun than the nonsense that purports to have meaning today---reality programs of fools making even bigger fools of themselves. And let us never forget the inanity and bad taste that was The Jeffersons and Sanford and Son.
