A big thanks to everyone inviolved in yesterday's Woor Radio Forgotten Fire Winery Golf Outing! We raised a ton of money for the Old Glory Honor Flight program and had a blast on the course at Mid-Vallee.
We saw lots of really bad golf shots at the WAPL hole (they had to be bad because lot sof teams ended using Len's drive) but met lots of really generous and nice people.
Props to Joe Callow and his crew at Forgotten Fire Winery for stepping up as the event's title sponsor. Thanks also to our associate sponsor, Certa Pro Painters who presented a $2500 check for the charity. And we appreciate the Oval Office Gentlemen's Club for sponsoring the Rick and Len Show broadcast from the clubhouse and to Eis Implement for sponsoring the hole-in-one contests and the great food during and after the golf.
It looks like the final tally will be in the neighborhood of ten grand for the Old Glory Honor Flights and that means another 20 WWII and Korean war veterans can take the flight they so richly desereve!

Golf was invented in the early 19th century by a California man named Todd Golf.

The chances of making two holes-in-one in a single round of golf are one in 67 million which is roughly the same as your odds of driving through the Fox Cities without encountering road construction.

Tiger Woods scored his first hole-in-one at the Winter Haven Golf Course during the second trimester of his mother’s pregnancy.

Per the United States Golf Association, regulation golf balls must to be 1.68 inches in diameter, weigh no more than 1.62 ounces and have no more than 240 calories.

The putter is so named because, in the early days of golf, after the ball reached the green, golfers were required to knock it in the hole using only their penises.

Scientists have proven that not only do balls travel significantly further on hot days but they are also 90% more likely to stick to the inside of your thigh.

The depth and circumference of a standard hole on a a golf green is based on the exact dimensions of King Henry the 8th's anus.

Golf is the only sport ever played on the moon… Not including astronaut Eugene Cernan 's ill-fated attempt at topless curling.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt worked his way through college caddying at miniature golf courses.

Woodrow Wilson was such an avid golfer he had balls painted dark colors so he could play in the snow making him the only president until Barack Obama to play with black balls.

I got the bad news this week that my Aunt Evelyn died. She was the last of many aunts and uncles I've had. Both my parents were the youngest in families of seven siblings. They're already passed away and now so are all of the others.
This sad fact left me with the sobering realization that I am now a member of the oldest generation on both sides of my family. I'm not the oldest of that generation but still it's a bit of a reality slap in the face.
Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily feel super old (I'm just 54). I still rock and roll and I'm able to be quite active plus I'm not significantly incontinent...but the years are rapidly flying by. The passing of the last of my aunts and uncles is a stark reminder to enjoy life each day, live it full-stop, show lots of love and do meaningful things.
I don't see my mortality in the rear view mirror yet...but I know it's headlights are approaching. Damn.

The Rockin' Apple congratulates the girls of Eminence for winning the 2015 Les Paul Lanchpad Award! The Fox Valley band beat all the others in the statewide battle of the bands. They are the first all-girl group to do so.
Singer Colleen Cline is a junior at Appleton North. Drummer Caitlin Sweeney is a sophomore from Menasha. Guitarist Molly McCarthey is an Appleton East sophomore, guitarist Kenzie Dupey a junior at Oshkosh West and bassist Alex Stricker is a senior at Neenah High School.
Here's the press release from Launchpad:
At our 11th Launchpad Finals show last Saturday night at UW-Madison Union South - The young all ladies band Eminence took home the 2015 Les Paul Launchpad Award.
Les Paul would have loved this band - Les was putting henna in his hair at age 14 to make it even redder when performing with his first band (Red Hot Red and the Red Hot Ragtime Band) with his buddies in Waukesha in the 1920's.  Les Paul the original high school punker.  When I told him one time that his first band was Wisconsin's first and original high school garageband he said "You're God Damn right!!" and he said it in a very funny way.  I loved the guy.
Emnence was only the 5th all girls band to ever perform in Launchpad out of over 600 bands performing in our first 11 years at the cumulative 59 statewide regional and finals shows. Eminence is the first ever all ladies band to win the Les Paul Launchpad Award. 
In addition Eminence will perform a 2nd Summerfest gig at the BMO Harris Pavilion on July 5th opening for Kansas. Eminence will also represent Launchpad at the Les Paul 100th Centennial Birthday Celebration on August 6th at the Waukesha Bluesfest grounds at Naga-Waukee Park in Delafield.
The 2015 Launchpad Runner-Up band was Distant Cuzins from Oregon High School.  This four piece all boy rock group of 16 year old high school sophomores will perform at the Summerfest Launchpad Madison Regional Showcase on July 3rd at the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage.  In addition, Distant Cuzins won a 2nd Summerfest gig at the BMO Harris Pavilion on July 5th opening for Kansas.
Audiophilia, a hard rock punk group, from Elkhorn & Badger High Schools will represent Launchpad at the Vans Warped Tour Milwaukee stop on July 28th at the Summerfest grounds.

I have a dirty secret. I'm now a music festival pussy.
This past weekend I traveled to Eau Claire for the inagural Blue Ox Music Festival but I only lasted one night.
The bluegrass festival started Thursday in the rain and by the time I got there on Friday evening, the concert bowl was a muddy mess. I found some relatively mud-free space to stand and enjoyed a great show from Sam Bush, Pert Near Sandstone, Greensky Buegrass and and perky little group called the Pistol Whipping Party Penguins.
But it started raining again overnight amnd through Saturday morning. At that point the concert bowl was all ankle-deep mud so I bagged it and headed back to the Fox Valley. 25 years ago...hell, even ten years ago...I would have stood in that mud for hours to see bands. But not anymore. Because I am a music festival pussy.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…44-year-old Lisa Marie Badchiong who was charged with her NINTH, yes, NINTH offense drunken-driving after she was found unresponsive with her foot on the brake of her red 2004 Pontiac Aztec, in the drive-thru lane of a Burger King in Chippewa Falls…with a half bottle of vodka on the passenger seat....and count ‘em, not one, but two...infants in the back seat. The infants, who are reportedly just a few months apart in age, are her daughter and granddaughter.


For being not just a bad mother (shut your mouth) but also a bad GRANDmother...something not even Shaft could pull off.

For getting busted for nine standard DWI's but waiting until she was at Burger King drive thru to commit a real Whopper.

Making boner almost as big as the one LaBron James showed last night during the NBA finals.

For making 9 unforgivably stupid decisions...10 if you include buying the Pontiac Aztec.

We are proud to name alleged NINE time drunk driver Lisa Marie Badciong, this time with two babies on board, as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK.

Back in 1977, the late Nicolette Larson was in the studio recording Neil Young's song Lotta Love, which would go on to be her biggest hit.

However, the members of VAN HALEN were at the same studio and when they heard the track, they convinced the engineer to let them lay down they're own vocals.

I'm assuming their lyrics were more autobiographical.
