Carman: The Absolute Best
Did you ask for it? No! But you're GETTING it: Carman!
In the spirit of his go-big-or-go-home theatrics, we are giving you THREE episodes on Carman this month. A holy trinity if you will (or won't). Consider this first episode The Father.
If you aren't familiar with him, there isn't really any good way to describe Carman in a paragraph. Part minister, part Elvis impersonator, part Broadway performer, part theater actor, and whole culture vulture, Carman entertained crowds with his charisma and astounding statistics on abortion, homosexuality, and gang violence. Fun for the whole family!
John and I discuss his first (I think his first; I forgot to look that part up) greatest hits compilation, 1993's The Absolute Best. We look at his controversial message, his career up until 1993, and John's impression of him now after enjoying Mission 3:16 from the WOW 1998 Compilation.
Truly, he was a man brave enough to say: Satan, kiss my BUTT.
