SENT TO ME BY SOMEONE FROM ARIZONA

Pretty High Quality Production, though

It should be pointed out that, in Chicago, Steve Goodman is known not so much for his work with Arlo Guthrie as for the underground song "Lincoln Park Pirates", a protest song about sanctioned towing and the unregulated profits it created for insiders.

Steve was a Cub fan, through and through, so the graphics might be a little blasphemous.

Anyway, here 'tis.

Good to see your post about "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" by Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in an eight-year project of mine that has come to fruition -- an 800-page biography of Goodman published in May, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the origin of "Dying Cub Fan" and "Go, Cubs, Go." Last Friday, Oct. 5, was proclaimed Steve Goodman Day in Illinois. Please check my Internet site below for more info on the book. Just trying to spread the word. Feel free to do the same!

I always liked the "It's a Beautiful day for a Ballgame" song, I'm told it came out in the 50's for radio, WGN used it before the games on TV in the 70's & 80's. "Let's go, batter up, we're taking the afternoon off! It's a ...... or something like that. Even as a Cards fan, it was cool. Cubs games were the only ones on on a daily basis for a while.
