We can blame this guy

You know who you can blame for hearing the Macarena over and over again on the radio?

This guy: Lee De Forest, considered the father of radio, broadcast the 1st music on radio on this day back in 1907.  No not the Macarena, but the William Tell overture, from the Telharmonic Hall in NY.  I spent over 45 years in the industry and wrapped up the career at iHeartMedia.

Lee taught us a good business lesson:
To be successful, you have to follow your passion, not a paycheck.

Maybe I should have used Fernado by Abba or Mambo #5? ;0)

Business truth from a funny guy

John Candy taught us all the truth of business success …in a funny movie role:

“Well, you think what you want about me; I’m not changing. I like… I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.”  

What would YOU change with that thinking?
John left us today in 1994.

But it still feels funny in your mouth.

It was first used as a protein food for rich people with no teeth.

Today is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. (3/1)

Maybe it started with the Aztecs.  Maybe it started with Dr. Kellogg in 1896.

At the 1904 World’s Fair it was labeled as the “All American Food”.
Then  BOOM!

Last year, about 297 million people in the US chose between creamy and chunky. Also loved by most dogs and by veterinarians to make a pup happy when  getting her shots! ;0) 

Trivia:  how many peanuts are needed to make a 12 ounce jar?
