On Saturday Rick McGinnis' weekly movie date went Cuban and revolutionary. The fourth of the new stand-alone weekly editions of The Hundred Years Ago Show covered all the news including the dedication of the new Lincoln Memorial, and our Sunday song selection was a number Mark's been singing on telly all week: Aba-daba-daba-daba-daba-daba-daba, said the monkey...
