    The Jack Benny Show "An Arizona Western" The Golden Age Of Radio

    in Comedy

    JP's Golden Age Of Radio Series features the amazingly hilarious thoughts of Jack Benny with this episode titled "Arizona Western". This episode aired as thousands turned their radios on the night of October 17th, 1948.

    Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky February 14, 1894 - December 26, 1974) was an American comedian, vaudevillian, and actor for radio, television, and film.

    Widely recognized as one of the leading American entertainers of the 20th century, Benny was known for his comic timing and his ability to get laughs with either a pregnant pause or a single expression, such as his signature exasperated "Well!" His radio and television programs, tremendously popular in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, were a foundational influence on the situation comedy.

    The Gospel of Sacred Stell

    in Christianity

    Sacred Steel

    Sacred steel is a musical style and African-American gospel tradition that developed in a group of related Pentecostal churches in the 1930s. The Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of the Truth, was founded in 1903 by Mary Magdalena Lewis Tate. Following her death in 1930, the church divided into three branches, known as the Keith, Jewell and Lewis dominions. The steel guitar was embraced in the worship of two of these dominions, the Keith Dominion (officially, The House of God Which Is the Church of the Living God the Pillar and Ground of the Truth Without Controversy), headquartered in Nashville[1] and the Jewell Dominion (Church of the Living God,

    Sacred Steel was something I heard but had no ideal what it was or where it originated from

    Michael Hiltzik: Big Science

    in Politics Progressive

    From Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and Los Angeles Times contributor, Michael Hiltzik, the untold story of how science went “big:” built the bombs that helped win World War II, and became dependent on government and industry—and the forgotten genius who started it all, Ernest Lawrence.

    Since the 1930s, the scale of scientific endeavors has grown exponentially. Machines have become larger, ambitions bolder. The first particle accelerator cost less than one hundred dollars and could be held in its creator’s palm, while its descendant, the Large Hadron Collider, cost ten billion dollars and is seventeen miles in circumference. Scientists have invented nuclear weapons, put a man on the moon, and examined nature at the subatomic scale—all through Big Science, the industrial-scale research paid for by governments and corporations that have driven the great scientific projects of our time.

    The birth of Big Science can be traced to Berkeley, California, nearly nine decades ago, when a resourceful young scientist with a talent for physics and an even greater talent for promotion pondered his new invention and declared, “I’m going to be famous!” Ernest Orlando Lawrence’s cyclotron would revolutionize nuclear physics, but that was only the beginning of its impact. It would change our understanding of the basic building blocks of nature. It would help win World War II. Its influence would be felt in academia and international politics. It was the beginning of Big Science.

    This is the incredible story of how one invention changed the world and of the man principally responsible for it all. Michael Hiltzik tells the riveting full story here for the first time. Audio edited/replaced Jan 17, 2016 11:45am pacific.

    FBC Podcast #453-The Big Holiday Quiz Show

    in Professional

    Join Paul, Dave, Tom, Andy and me as we engage in a star-studded podcast called the Big Holiday Quiz show. We put our minds to the test and continue the tradition of a quiz that is intended to challenge your mind and your patience.

    Here's how we play the game:

    For the first four rounds, I have assembled an equal number of questions for each of our contestants on each of their chosen 'specialist' subjects:

    Paul - F1 in the 1970s
    Andy - F1 in the 1990s
    Dave - GP racing in the 1930s
    Tom - Sports car racing, any period
    For the final four rounds, the contestants have compiled their own questions for each other and the defending champion, Andrew, takes on former champion Dave against young upstarts Tom and Paul. Can Andy be like Lewis and defend his title? Will Dave be like Niki Lauda and come back to win another title? Is Paul this podcasts "Plucky Teen"? Can Tom finally put his epic motorsport knowledge to good use? You'll have to listen to find out.

    On behalf of all of us at FBC, have the happiest of Holidays and thank you for all your support and for listening.
