The Top 100 Greatest Artists in Rock and Roll and Pop music history

Thank you!

All of the monuments and memorials on the National Mall were well worth seeing.  We will talk about some of our favorites when we record a new When It Was Cool Podcast sometime this week.  The biggest surprise of the trip was just how impressive the National Cathedral was.  We both loved the incredible building with it's Gothic architecture.  

I have lots of recording to do this week.  The July Classic Wrestling Marathon is almost here over at Wresting Observer and I am mixing the shows right now for it.  31 shows…
