Who Should Have Their Own Holiday?
Ever since I was a kid, I believed that Columbus is the guy who discovered America. Recent studies have indicated otherwise. Some people doing research on this believe that the voyages of John Cabot, the Italian navigator and explorer predates Christopher Columbus. Lief Erickson pretty much predates all of them. So, with all of that said, does Christopher Columbus really deserve his own day? I appreciate his stories, but I really don’t think so.
I have come up with a list and the reasons why these people far more deserve a day of there own. I asked listeners to call in and give me who they think and this is what we have come up with.
Van Halen Day: March 15th (It is the closest date to 5150 I could come up with) In my opinion, one of the best bands to date. Eddie Van Halen’s guitar playing is innovative.
Bob Marley Day: April 20th (For good reason) Bob Marley represented what most of us want in this world everyday. Peace and love.
Biker Brothers and Sisters Day: August 6th (That sounds good! Right around the first week of Sturgis) Many bikers have done some amazing stuff in the world. Charities and helping out many organization. And Since I am one, we should totally have a day!
Nolan Bushnell Day: December 26th (John Riggs picked this dude) Nolan was the founder of the Atari and of the awesome pizza joint Chuck E Cheese. So we picked December 26th, the day after Christmas because back in the day when I got my Atari I always wanted pizza while I was playing it! HA
Ted Nugent: September 15th (The first day of Bow Hunting) Not only is Uncle Ted and amazing guitar player and bow hunter but he is very political as well. Actually I picked “The Nuge” for President!
