Well, you've read the notes, the notes were a trip, and now it is time for you to post until the trippy cows come home.

The first time I was ever in New York was in March 1977. I was in high school and was on a church trip to study apartheid in South Africa.  We met with a lot of people in DC then went to New York to meet with others and go to the United Nations.   We stayed at the YMCA that's close to the UN. 

Let's see, we did a lot of touring, Statue of Liberty, saw The Wiz, went to the Rockettes Easter show, I can't remember what else we did as a group.   This was the trip that I told them Rupert Holmes was a friend of the family and they let me go to lunch with him.  So, the first time I met Rupert in person (we had been writing to each other for a couple months) was the first time I ever went to New York. 

We had lunch at the Auto-Pub and he took me to the recording studio at the top of the Radio City Music Hall Building.  We've been friends ever since

First time in New York was to see WILDCAT starring Miss Lucille Ball....I wrote about it here recently.

Several trips since then....with friends to see shows and have fun....but never to work!

I have been listening to the excellent new CD of the soundtrack for HOW TO MURDER YOUR WIFE, and the music makes me remember scenes and images from the film.....that I haven't seen in many years....but has some how been imprinted on my brain.

Vibes for DR MATTH for the morning PT.

And condolences to DR MICHAEL SHAYNE on the loss of his godfather.

DR MBARNUM sent me a nice birthday present, a couple of episodes of Richard Denning as detective Michael Shayne....one of the episodes featuring Miss Allison Hayes in a couple of scenes and Miss Faye Spain in way TOO many scenes.

DR JMK - late of THE PRODUCERS - Encore Drama is showing WILL THERE REALLY BE A MORNING? several times this month....I caught a bit of it last night.  Susan Blakely is inadequate - but she really gets NO help from script or director....

In a nutshell. Got the cds this weekend

Listened to The Fortune Cookie because of Andre Previn first.
Who sings the Cole Porter song?

Started with Disc 1 of How to Murder Your Wife.

Track 1 was rather long for a main title for a film from the sixties (over 6 minutes) But I liked it,
Thought that track 2 had a Klezmer feel to it around 2:00 minute mark.

Hefti did not have a large out put as a film composer, but because of his work for Barefoot in the Park, The Odd Couple and Batman I decided to give this release  try.

JR, I figured out that WTRBAM was airing--that was when I had that first insane jump in readership on my site.  And then people started emailing me.  They all come here.  How do they find me?  STOP ME BEFORE I QUOTE AGAIN........  ;)

bk - As for your hotel's gym...

-It's just two blocks.  Which is a good distance for a warm-up and a cool-down.

-Most gyms are busy between 7:00am-9:00am - before people go to work. You should be fine at 9:30am.

TOD

1968 Easter. Visited my father's brother and his family, Stayed on Park Avenue. Looked like the apartment building used on the tv series A Family Affair. Was taken to Radio City Music Hall. Saw their Easter show and a terrible Disney movie called The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. That starred Jed Clampett, the TV Cinderella (2nd one. I didn't know about the first one as of yet) and  one of the Real McCoys. and the bald headed guy from The Dick Van Dyke Show. That's how I knew them and not by the real names.

Also in the movie was a future Walton, Regular Hollywood Square regular and a future host and Goldie Hawn's future partner and Edna Unger in the TV version of the Odd Couple

TOD 2

Didn't see any Broadway shows. Although I wanted to see Hello Dolly. I missed Carol Channing when she did it at Expo 67. And I believe Pearl Bailey was in the show at that time.

Also playing at that time were Golden Rainbow, How Now Dow Jones, The Happy Time, George M & Hair

First time in NYC saw the OBCs of Pippin and ALNM.  Had two offers I should have taken and passed up--a Movie of the Week was filming in Central Park and one of my uncles knew the director and said I could be a "go-fer" if I wanted.  Also the little remembered off Broadway musical "Smith!" (with Don Murray) had closed for a month or so and was trying to move to a bigger house (which it never did--it didn't reopen) and again my Uncles knew someone in the production and I could have gone to a pick up rehearsal and didn't (and I've been incredibly curious about that show ever since).  I did get to have lunch with movie producer Harrison Starr.

Oh, and as I've recounted here before, I did get to talk to "Dusty" Hoffman, who called my Uncle one day, and also, more embarrassingly, to Rip Torn and Geraldine Page, whom my Uncle called at the crack of dawn one morning to impress me--thrusting the phone at me after waking the poor hapless souls.

We should be a party of nine (us, BK, Ben, elmore, Jose, Julie, vixmom and vixter) at the get-together Monday at 7:30. 

If anyone's plans have changed, please let us know.  And we've got a work session at 6 before the do, so please try to kill time rather than ring up early.
