Billy Corben Stumps for Luther Campbell On Sid Rosenberg
While making the local radio rounds this past 4/20 promoting his latest epic documentary, Square Grouper, Rakontur auteur Billy Corben articulated his unwavering support for Luther Campbell's mayoral campaign on Sid Rosenberg's 560 WQAM show.

Corben's stumping left the Brooklyn-born loudmouth speechless for a few seconds. But not long enough. "Billy, I you have ties to the University of Miami and I know Uncle Luke is Mr. Miami and he loves the school," Rosenberg countered.
