Yes, Clarice, THE Marilyn Horne who was in the class ahead of me. Later she and her then husband, were here in town for a musical event and we met again at a post-performance party. She's *our* height, Clarice, but always had a singer's build.

The other musical genius who went to my high school (years and years ahead of me) was Spike Jones, always a inspiration.

More Obama in Presidential History?

Andrew Jackson adopted an Indian baby after killing his mother and Obama is campaigning for an Indian who's great great great grandaddy helped Andrew Jackson kill that Indian babies mother.

Blumenthal correction noted.

"an inspiration." The school legend was that someone found Spike's name carved inside a desk.

"Is everyone and thing okay Daddy?"

No Jane,

I lost about 30 minutes of beauty sleep from those damn dogs barking:(

Jane

Aww poor thing. Well this might put you to sleep!

daddy

Yay Jane!!!

Clarice

Frau, I looked up the school---very impressive place. I hope it hasn't declined along with most of California's better institutions.

Captain Hate

Jane do you put up a weekly podcast at your blog? The show sounds great.

Janet

The show sounds great.

You really do a good job, Jane. Such an easy rhythm....& you speak so clearly. You were by far the best speaker on Datechguy's radio program awhile ago.

Clarice

Doesn't Jane have a fabulous voice? So sexy.

Jane, or TC or Dave:

Is Howie quitting his show? I listen regularly, and have heard him say things in passing that indicate that he is retiring sometime soon, but haven't heard anything definitive.

If he is quitting, we need a JOM movement to get WRKO to hire Jane as his replacement!

I must have listened previously when she had a cold or allergies because her voice was a lot harsher than it sounds here.

Clarice, there were 900 in my graduating class. Students were "tracked" according to projected outcomes-college-bound or not. I took two *city* buses to get to school. The neighborhood today is not what it used to be, unfortunately, and neither is the city

Jane

Oh dear - harsh? Moi? Never!

And yes I would love to replace Howie Carr. Anyone know anyone? I'll settle for being a guest host!

He signed a contract with WTKK 96.9 FM about 5 years ago and his current station WRKO 680 AM (Entercom) sued him claiming that they had the right to match any contract offer, and won. He's been making fun of the company and talking on-air about the day he finally gets to leave ever since. He even wears 96.9 swag while he's at work. When something isn't working right, it's "Entercom happens". The latest rumor has 101.7 FM becoming a new talk station featuring him - the station was acquired by Clear Channel yesterday.

Hey Dave,

Do you have any sources for that info? I'd like to know more.

Dave (in MA)

Hi Jane, I'm going by memory. Let me see...
