Still a ‘Holy Grail’ of lunacy over 40 years later

One of Monty Python’s landmark exercises in absurdity turns 41 this month, which brings to mind their equally loony sketch show.
41 years ago, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” came out and went on to become one of their best-known films. Helping to lay the groundwork for their flick was their hijinks on “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”.
To this day, one of my favorite skits was Monty Python’s spirited recreation of the Battle of Pearl Harbor,…
,…a close second would be the self-defense against fruit.
As for Monty Python tunes, this one tops my favorites list
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
