"Weird Al used music videos brilliantly. His parodies of both Michael Jackson and Madonna were even more memorable than the original videos themselves."

Entry for August 18, 2020

Wow, do those Youngstowners love Al!

It seemed as if everyone who came to the show knew all about our campaign thanks to a number of local media mentions, and we soon had a line forming just to sign the petition!

We sincerely thank not only all the fans in the Youngstown area but also Bridget at the Chevrolet Centre for her support, assistance, enthusiasm, and especially her permission.

But we're not done yet, no way, no sir! We have yet another Ohio show to talk about tonight! It's at that old tour standby, the Kings Island theme park in suburban Cincinnati. Most likely everyone going is already at the park, but if you're heading out there now just for the concert, be sure to look for Accordion Mom, bigdawg72987, kaffy©, weirdalgurl, and white&nerdy!

Today is also the birthday of one of the Al fan base's dearest friends, Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, Al's drummer and official archivist since 1980. Jon is one of the key reasons why Al's recordings and live performances are so excellent and stand heads and shoulders above those of other comedy artists, and he is also one of the kindest, coolest people ever, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERMUDA!!!

Again, we're running low on concerts on this tour, so be sure to volunteer today!
