My Favorite July 4th Celebrations include 1981 with Wolfman Jack!

Posted by: | July 1 at 12:44 a.m.

One of my favorite 4th of Julys was the 3 hour “live” concert telecast that Wolfman Jack & I hosted at the Queen Mary on July 5, 1981! This concert was part of a live simulcast on national television and radio entitled The Spirit of America Spectacular on July 5, 1981. It originated from the site where the Queen Mary is permanently docked in Long Beach, California. The show included performances by The Beach Boys, Three Dog Night, Pablo Cruise and Rick Springfield. Pictured below, I’m in the crowd of thousands of people who waited all day in the Queen Mary parking lot to see the show that started at 6 p.m., L.A. time!!

Below, I’m back on stage with Mike Love & the Beach Boys at the 1981 Queen Mary in Long Beach concert! The radio/TV simulcast featured all of the original Beach Boys, including Brian that night, and in my hand is a telegram from the White House that I had just finished reading congratulating the Beach Boys on their 20 years of making music!

Posted by: | June 30 at 11:14 a.m.

Team USA in the World Cup Soccer Showdown has survived the group of “Death” losing to 2nd ranked in the world, Germany, with a goal in the 2nd half, but holding their own overall in the game & actually looking better the more they realized they can play with anybody in the world! Portugal did manage a tie with Team USA with a last second goal, but Portugal did not advance, and they’re ranked 4th in the world. Next up is Belgium, who beat the U.S. in a recent friendly match 4-2, but this USA team has progressed quite a bit from their level of play back then. Tuesday will see just how far we’ve come! USA Goalie Tim Howard previews Tuesday’s match!

Former “Good Morning America” co-host Joan Lunden revealed on Tuesday that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. “In the beginning it’s such a shock, it’s a stunner,” Lunden told Robin Roberts. “For me, I’m a health advocate, I’m all over America talking to women saying, ‘Make sure you get all of your checkups.’ In the beginning you almost feel like ‘What did I do wrong?’ I heard those words that every woman fears and that I never thought I’d hear: ‘you have breast cancer.’ “Lunden is now in “warrior mode” learning everything she can about the disease and is currently undergoing chemotherapy, she said.
