Click here to hear my conversation with Neil Diamond just before the holidays, discussing his career, his engagement, and his tour, coming to the Q July 1st.
It was a special night in New York on April 11th when Sting and his wife Trudy where honored by the We Are Family Foundation for their work on behalf of the rainforests for so long.
The foundation is headed up by Nancy Hunt and Chic founder and producer Nile Rodgers. Helping honor Sting, was special musical guest Sam Moore of Sam & Dave. Here are dueting on Sting's Police hit "Every Breath you Take"
One of the most recognizable voices in broadcast history was silenced Tuesday. NFL announcer Pat Summerall has passed away at the age of 82 in the hospital where he was recovering from hip surgery. A former kicker, he was still playing when he became an announcer, and eventually teamed up with John Madden to become the premiere NFL announcing team in the modern era.
I love John Madden’s released statement… "Pat was my broadcasting partner for a long time, but more than that he was my friend for all of these years," Madden said in a statement. "We never had one argument, and that was because of Pat. He was a great broadcaster and a great man. He always had a joke. Pat never complained and we never had an unhappy moment. He was something very special. Pat Summerall is the voice of football and always will be."

Here’s Pat’s opening for the 1992 NFC Championship Game with John Madden
Try to ignore the annoying guy doing the interviewing here and focus on Pat to hear him tell his story a bit. This proves that on top of everything else Pat sure was quite a tolerant man as well.
For those of us who loved "Leave It to Beaver" (even if for people like me it was in reruns) this is a sad loss. Frank Bank, who played Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford, passed away on Saturday at 71.
After “…Beaver” ended, Bank became a bond broker and helped some of the cast with the money they made on the series and beyond.
Jerry Mathers, who played "Beaver" wrote on his Facebook page, "I was so sad to hear today of the passing of my dear friend and business associate Frank Bank, who played Lumpy on 'Leave it to Beaver.' He was a character and always kept us laughing. My deepest condolences to Frank's family."
Here’s the news story in his passing [Click here]

Here’s one of the fun things he did in later years, associated with his character on the show.
This is one of those "feel better about yourself" moments. For some God-awful reason (I'm assuming it had to do with Jay-Z and Beyonce's recent trip to Cuba,) former White House press secretary Dana Perino from Fox News decided to rap. Yikes.
It’s amazing how many people DON’T know how to use those big rubber exercise balls. Hello… sit-ups and working on your core etc. Nope, people jumping on them, throwing them against the wall and getting knocked out on the rebound etc. makes for a funny video compilation though…
You know, it’s not only women who like to be flattered. Us guys like to hear that we look nice, and that we're wanted and appreciated too. Here's a number of things Brie Schwartz from redbook magazine figured out her man like to hear...
Brie fills these out in detail in the article here.
Prince William and Kate Middleton were visiting Scotland. And while they were shaking hands with locals outside an event, he went to kiss a four-year-old girl and got SHUT DOWN, by her. He asked her if she wanted a kiss, but she yanked her head away right when he leaned in.
Don’t worry William, we know you’ll be a great dad, despite that the fact that 4-year-olds are repulsed by you... Haha..
Just kidding, but it is true that kids at that age certainly aren't impressed with your royalty or fame. The collective "gasp" here is hilarious.
If you love classic TV, then you gotta love the interview Katie Couric did recently with the prominent females from the "Mary Tyler Moore" show. Mary, Valerie Harper, Betty White, Cloris Leachman, and Georgia Engel came together for the first time since the MTM finale in 1977. It was for a special episode of "Hot In Cleveland."
Fleetwood Mac started their tour in Columbus last night. Here's a sneek peek at their set list so you'll know what to expect when they make it to Cleveland in June.
And to really get you in the mood, here's "The Chain" from the show:
