FOF #2911 – Checking Your Attitude for Gratitude

2020 has been a hell of a year. With the Covid pandemic raging on and Republicans pushing everything to the brink of collapse, it’s beyond ironic that the last show we did in 2019 with comedian Brian Sweeney was called “The Year of Hell” yet this year is definitely worse, or is it?

After all there’s nothing so rotten, that some good can’t come from it, we’ve had a pretty good election and with Georgia’s January runoff, progressive superstar Stacy Abrahms is now a key figure in the balance of power between Americans and facism.

Today our favorite grouch Brian Sweeney joins us to look at things we’re grateful for that did come to pass in 2020.

FOF # 2867 – Brian Sweeney, Fred Willard and a Million Dollar Pencil

One of our favorite tv shows from the late 70s was NBC’s Real People, a celebration of everyday people doing extraordinary things like a guy who ate soil, a one-legged man who ran across Canada and a couple who owned a roadside store that offered a million dollar pencil for sale.

Real People was by an ensemble that included the recently departed comedian Fred Willard, the show put a spotlight on people’s triumphs and helped introduce eccentric goofballs like Richard Simmons.

Today Brian Sweeney breaks his silence to take a look at the life of comedy legend Fred Willard.
