Tim Wilson passed away on February 26, 2014 of a massive heart attack. He delighted audiences throughout the midwest and southern states with songs and stories about his crazy life. He was 52 and is survived by his treasured wife Deidre "Sweetie" Wilson and two children from a previous marriage. He sold more than 500,000 comedy CDs and DVDs, stuffed full of historical parodies, songs about hard times, and Southern culture.

Here's a 1941 AT&T film showing the challenge of transferring long distance calls. Look out, Memphis. The Louisville Cardinals are coming.

It Doesn't Get Better from Jason Headley on Vimeo. Bruce the Boss captured this dilemma 30 years ago.
During the 2014 Olympics, Team Canada beat the U.S. in both men's and women's hockey. Hey, it's their bread and butter. Sadly, the side bet was that the loser had to keep Justin Bieber. All of those other polite celebrity Canadians sent a sympathy card. Sweetest neighbors ever.
Just like last season, the Louisville Cardinals are finding ways to win as March Madness approaches. Russ Smith tossed in a midrange jumper with a few seconds left to seal a nail-biter against conference rival Cincinnati. This road win over the #7 Bearcats neutralizes an earlier home loss to them. UofL and UC are now tied at the top of the American Athletic Conference. With four games left in the regular season, Louisville is positioned to make another run toward the Final Four. Let's celebrate with some musical weirdness.
Airplanes are landing at Bowman Field. Trees continue growing around Bowman Field. Some neighborhood residents have formed Plea for Trees, a group dedicated to saving the trees. An enormous amount of tax money is about to be spent for another assessment to assess the previous assessment that assessed yet another previous assessment. Let's inject some sanity into this situation. Why must we spend nearly $500,000 on a study of 150 trees (or clusters)? That's $3,303.33 per tree...for a study. Let's spend that money trimming tree tops that are in the standard glide paths of the runways, which are defined on pilot approach/departure charts. We all love trees. We all make choices when we buy houses at or near airports. Trees grow.
Jerry Seinfeld was Jimmy Fallon's first stand-up comedian guest on the new Tonight Show. Jerry did not disappoint.
Here's a terrific inside studio look at New York City's legendary progressive rock station WNEW-FM. The station ruled New York's album-oriented rock audiences from the late 1960s through the 1980s. These videos show the creative nature of the radio station in its heyday. Deejays picked their own music and crafted shows for the mood of the moment. By 1998, the station had gone through a litany of management changes, reliance on heavy research, and a dictation of rigid airplay rotation. Naturally, WNEW-FM saw its ratings evaporate. No creativity = no listeners in music radio Legendary deejay Scott Muni and his cast of popular colleagues were all fired by the late 90s. New York radio has never seen another station
