Classic George Carlin and classic jazz!

As readers of this blog know, I am a big booster of Ken Laster's "In the Groove...Jazz and Beyond" podcast. This week's show features some classic Carlin routines nicely sandwiched between some classic jazz pieces. Check it out here. (see Ken's playlist below; by the way, is it only this blogger's curse that Blogger posts format differently on different browsers--Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.--as well as on different computers? Advice from fellow bloggers very welcome, because what looks great on one computer looks crappy on another!)

My own earlier tribute to Carlin, including YouTube videos of two classic routines, can be found here.
