and How It All Went Wrong!
Tribute by Jim Metzner, Host of Pulse of the Planet
In NYC, 2015 Barry, who is a student of 26 languages gave the Keynote address at the Polyglot conference. Enjoy this brilliant talk.
Barry asks his grandfather about everything from the Old Country (Russia) to his views on space travel, how he met Grandma Marcus and his love for his new country.
How many conservative broadcasters can boast that a Beatle is a big fan? I asked him what he and John Lennon had in common. "We hated Communist Dictatorships!"
This is a beautiful tale of their meeting.
