George Carlin 1937 – 2008

George Carlin

I learned my best curse words from two people, my father and George Carlin. As a student, we passed around Carlin’s list of “7 Words You Can’t Say on Television” and added a few of our own. He pretty much covered the bases though.

Sadly, George Carlin passed away yesterday at the age of 71. Considered a counter culture hero, Carlin’s influence is apparent in many of today’s popular comedians. I took a look around our archives to see what I could find on this comedic legend. It seems many of our hosts have tributes planned.

  • JimmyCart will remember Carlin today, and looks with fondness upon his “Differences Between Football and Baseball” and “Hippy Dippy Weatherman” sketch this evening at 10:00 p.m.
  • Paranormal 101 will reflect on the legend that is George Carlin today at 10:00 p.m. EST.
  • JKGuy16 Will take a few minutes today to remember George Carlin at 4:00 pm  EST.

And our archives:

  • In a show dated June 4, 2008 on V-Radio: Is our republic the path to Liberty? What does Murray Sabrin’s loss prove? George Carlin’s take is always interesting but never for young ears.

 

If you miss a particular show or if one overlaps with another, don’t forget they’re all archived and you can check back later to hear what you missed. I’ll update this post if we learn of more tribute or find shows we missed.
