340 Death Strikes Again

Life is like a butterfly... One minute you are floating along and then the next... thummppp! Windshield.   This past week two men that I love dearly dropped dead. Gerke Nauta was the director of the first two seasons of the Kevin Masters Late Night show that I did in Amsterdam. He taught me how to be a television host and how to look into the cold black lense of the camera and speak warmly to the people watching at home. Gerke Nauta changed the course of my life when he and Jason Tegelaar chose me to be the star of their show. Another great loss to me was the death of Carl Labove. Before I ever met him he was my hero for his mastery of stand up comedy and then in the course of our friendship he was a never ending source of positive energy and an example of someone who never let hardship rob him of his joy for living or diminish his sparkle in any way. Both of these men are heroes to me in the story of my life and I praise, remember and celebrate them in this episode. I also talk about how I fell in love with the Toronto Blue Jays and why Bo Bichette is the Tom Rhodes of baseball. Furthermore I talk about why you shouldn't feed squirrels salted nuts, how to  solve the homeless crisis in Los Angeles and the most annoying thing that the artist Rembrandt did to his wife. There is new hope for the planet now that summer is arriving and because more people are getting vaccinated it means that it won't be long before we are allowed to gather in groups again to celebrate the best parts of being human. Hooray for humanity and joy be upon you!
