In the pop culture journey, there’s some stuff that just doesn’t jive with any particular genre or medium. Here, Sam explores the mascot and spokemodels, commercials and cats’ opinions and brings to light stories that often slip through the cracks because they don’t fit anywhere else. Remember Murphy the Molar? Grimace? The girl whpo drank Doctor Pepper? Sam does, and he makes sure that these interesting stories aren’t forgotten.
Often blamed for the breakup of one of the most beloved and influential pop bands of all time, Yoko Ono is in reality an unsung hero whose message of peace and love has been consistent despite the backlash.
