New Sincerity Summer - 5-28-05

This week we celebrate the New Sincerity Summer. We adjudicate the New Sincerity Summer contest, in which we asked listeners to contribute New Sincerity Summer activities. We also talk with Mike Veeck, minor league baseball empresario, son of baseball Hall of Famer Bill Veeck, and author of "Fun is Good." Mike talks with us about some of the promotions he's concocted, like "Disco Demolition Night" and "Mime-O-Vision." He also tells us about his son, who he has named "Night Train."
