Aloha all and welcome to Monday!
-- It’s been a rough week getting back after our vacation. Being under the weather is the biggest waste of time and it’s frustrating to be sidelined while the game is on. But, back to about 75% which is better than the 10% last week.
-- I had a chance to catch the Grammy’s last night, but I actually spent more time tuning into the SNL – The 80’s. Classic clips, but the backstory about the tenuous history of one of the most remarakable shows in all of television was fascinating. I had forgotten that, after the first five years of the iconic “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” that Lorne Michaels (Creator and Producer) and the entire cast walked out all at once. This left the network to try and capture lighting in a bottle and present the show with all new personnel. After some bumpy times, SNL emerged as a force in TV and pop culture with the introduction of players like Joe Piscopo, Eddie Murphy, Jon Lovitz, Billy Crystal and more.
What a great show last night. But, I did catch the always entertaining, talented and energetic Bruno Mars, et al. A tribute to Bob Marley could not be missed and was not disappointing.
-- Join me this morning for a chat with C2 at 7A and we’ll get into the details of the legislature today, too.
