Perfect Picture

Paris and the Beatles

This week's episode is about Paris, but it involves some great info about the Beatles.

Highly recommended.

Hawk is in the Hall

No offense, but are you serious? I don't want to be unkind, but he was unlistenable to me. And Pat Hughes still isn't in there? Not sure I understand this one...

December Nein

On December Nein (German pun there, sorry), we take a moment to recognize the Cubs who were born in Germany. Would you believe there were 12? Heinz Becker, Ed Eiteljorge, Marty Krug, and Fritz Mollwitz were German immigrants to this country. The other eight were born on military bases in Germany. All are featured in EveryCubEver. This year, give the gift of Germans for the holidays.
