Happy Columbus Day Monday from Flip Wilson

October 13, 2008

Heard this on the radio Saturday.  Listen and laugh.

If I don’t discover America, there’s not going to be a Benjamin Franklin or a star-spangled banner or a land of the free and a home of the brave. And no Ray Charles.

Thanks to the 45 and 33 blog for ripping it from vinyl.

Bonus: Geraldine Jones finds Ray Charles.

    Hey Ms. Lynn. I’m old enough to remember the old Flip Wilson Show on the TV machine. It was the Chapelle Show of its time. Most memorable moment: Taj Mahal singing Cakewalk into Town accompanied by a tuba. He certainly expanded my horizons on black culture.
