Also: a reduced tribute to and valuable sports betting tips from Peter Bergman of the Firesign Theatre, who passed away last week. “The Chump has left the building…” (Pictured: Dennis Parlato (right) and co-star Grainne Cassidy with director Austin Tichenor from the 1991 American Stage Festival production of Educating Rita by Willy Russell.) (Length 24:52)
