The Friday Fives


1. Who is your favorite comedian?

So many to choose from but I have to go with Groucho Marx. Back in college, I bought “An Evening With Groucho” album at a used record store up on the hill in Boulder and I became smitten.  His talk show/game show from the 1950’s”You Bet Your Life” is a classic that still holds up. The Marx Brother’s films are superb and hold up after all these years.  Spend some time on YouTube and search for his clips. You won’t be disappointed. 

2. Who is your favorite musician?

Springsteen. Duh. Have you not been reading this blog?

3. Who is your favorite actor/actress?

Sean Connery, probably.  

4. Who is your favorite film director?

Francis Ford Coppola

Runner Up: Hal Ashby

5. Who is your favorite personality?

Casey Kassem – I spend each Sunday morning doing the NY Times Crossword and listening to Casey’s American Top 40 reruns on SiriusXM’s 70’s channel
