Cultural Index – Sept. 8, 2016

  “’Cause the levee ain’t dry and the music didn’t die. . . -- Sonny Curtis.   Buddy Holly was born September 7, 1936.

For nearly 15 years a staple of the program was the Cultural Index topic, always on Thursdays. The topic was always non-sports related and might be anything from movies and TV shows, to food, drink or music. It didn't matter. If it was...

I’ll choose three topics, give you my take and then I want to hear yours as well. This first edition just hits on an intro topic but one that demanded a little more of a “stand” than normal – if…
