In 1990, Between games of a twin bill against Cincinnati on 'Working Women's Night' at Jack Murphy Stadium, Roseanne Barr, the star of the hit television show whose executive producer is new Padres' owner Tom Werner, sings an irreverent rendition of the The Star-Spangled Banner that will be widely criticized, including a remark by President George H. W. Bush, who calls her performance "disgraceful." The comedian, known for her biting sarcasm, spits and grabs her crotch as if adjusting a protective cup after singing the National Anthem in a loud and off-tune screechy manner.
In 1990, in The Barr-Strangled Banner, comedian Roseanne Barr sparked controversy with an off-key rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" to a booing audience during a double-header at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego. She sang the song off key, scratched herself, and spit. Maybe she should have patterned her singing after Milli Vanilli...lipsynching. President Bush calls the performance "disgusting." At the season premiere of her TV show on ABC, Roseanne says she feels so good that she feels like singing. The audience got that joke.

Nowdays in 1999, they can download them from the Internet and share tapes with each other. Meanwhile, KLSX struggles with its uninteresting mix of talk shows on the weekends aimless in its direction of programming.
