You can read it here.
I'm trying to decide if this is my last Chicago Radio Spotlight before my summer hiatus. I think it is. I do have word out to one more big name personality, but if he can't do it this week, this will be the last one until the fall. More information to follow.

My brother sent me this link. It's a great piece written by an American comedy writer/soccer fan, comparing each of the World Cup teams to American sports teams, in an effort to help non-soccer fans in America better understand.
I highly recommend it.
But I feel worse for the umpire.
Read this piece in the Tribune. This is a call that will torture him for the rest of his career, and he's already feeling it.
On this day in 1970, Ray Davies of the Kinks went into the studio to re-record the lyrics of "Lola" because of a threatened lawsuit. It became Cherry Cola instead of Coca-Cola. But it was still about a one-night stand with a he-she. Great, great song...
Holtzman scored the only run of the game himself, after reaching on an error in the third inning. (Glenn Beckert knocked him in with a single). The tough luck loser for the Reds was Gary Nolan, who gave up only five hits, and zero earned runs.
Among the hitters in the lineup for Cinci that day: Hal McRae, Tommy Helms, Lee May, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, George Foster, and Davey Concepcion.

This was the #1 song in the country on this day in 1985. I had to play it every single day (on WPGU in Champaign-Urbana) and eventually got really, really sick of it. But listening to it again this morning, I discovered I can finally enjoy it again. That only took 25 years.
I'm happy he's back from vacation. I'm guessing BP is not.

This was the #1 song in this country exactly 35 years ago today. He performed this at Farm Aid ten years later, and I confess I was singing along, even though I'm definitely not a country boy. It was quite a moment...
