Music and Me

Confession time. Until today I had never actually listened to ANY George Carlin. Then, today I heard a piece of his played on the radio that WAS music to me. The way he plays with our language in the first 4.33 minutes of this YouTube recording, just sang to me. I have heard that he was an innovator in the comedy world, but to THIS wordsmith who has always loved to play with words, THIS is clever. And then later in the same day, I heard snippets of an old interview Carlin did. He said "Words are my passion." I had noooooooooo idea, but I do

I have no idea what the rest of this recording is, so will leave the decision to you as to whether you listen past the first 4.33 minutes. Enjoy!
