George Carlin, Wonderful WINO, Son of WINO (12:03)
. . . Number One and moving higher all the time . . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky]
Carlin and comedian Jack Burns worked as a team at KXOL in Fort Worth, and in 1960 as The Wright Brothers at KDAY in Los Angeles. Carlin requested that his star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame be placed in front of the KDAY studios. While he was noted for his edgy, sometimes taboo and politically-insightful humor, there's no doubt he had studied radio, particularly Top 40 radio. With 1972's Son of WINO from his LP FM & AM, Carlin had added additional reverberation effects, a literally breathtaking news introduction and a time-tone (bing-bong!) to his Top 40 routine.
This composite of both WINO recordings demonstrates George Carlin's exceptional talent and secures his place as the Top 40 generation's favorite stand-up comedian.
