I am so glad to be home and in the AC! It is indeed treacherous out. My errands took me first to the barber for a haircut; I did not want to look shabby in Ohio this weekend. While I was waiting for the No. 7 bus at Sixth and 51st, I ran into Jane Klain of the Museum of Broadcasting and we had a nice chat. The neew MTA schedule is ridiculous for transport; the bus stop where I was wating has three buses stopping there, and I waited 15 minutes before any bus showed up. While I waited, three Limited Stop No. 5 uses drove past me since they don't stop there.

Then to the NYPL, where I will continue to look at OZ materials tomorrow after the McGlinnventory.

DR Thom, welcome to the group. Tell us more about yourself, what you do, what part of the country you inhabit, etc.

Jerry Ohrbach was wonderful and totally charming in PROMISES PROMISES. I saw him in the show on a Friday night in August 1969, and I saw 1776 on the following Saturday matinee. Can it be that his performance of "She Likes Basketball" from the Tony Awards of 1969 isn't on Youtube?  He was equally wonderful and menacing in the 1966 Lincoln Center production of CAROUSEL. In fact, I think when I met him, he was more like Chuck Baxter in real life than any of his other characters, sweet, charming, very nice.

My copy of "Promises, Promises" has not arrived yet.  Just a note, I do not care for the new broadway CD of "Promises, Promises" with Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth. Sean is not that good of a singer, at least on this recording.

I found my LP OBC for Promises Promises the other day.  Now I'm kicking myself for not ordering before Kritzerland sold out.  Guess I was a little caught up in the meatgrinder of family drama

Tonight is my first meeting on the Historical Preservation Commission as a commission member.  I'm presenting the guidelines I've been working on - not finished, just a work in progress.  I had been led to believe that they weren't at all what people wanted. But this morning, a member of the group I quit who really didn't talk to me about anything much stopped me to say that the work I did on the guidelines was incredible.  I have to say, whether he's right or wrong makes absolutely no difference to me, I needed to hear something good today and when it comes from someone who has no need to say anything at all, it means even more.

Hi everybody.  I have been a lurker for a few weeks.  I realize that everyone on this list is very familiar with each other. Therefore, I hope that you will get to know me also. I became aware of Bruce through Kritzerland, since I have ordered a majority of his CD's. I just started reading his books yesterday, starting with "Benjamin Kritzer." This book is my period having been born in 1942. I notice that most posts are very short, so I will end for now.

I just sent all my galley proof corrections back to the publisher.

The book should be out by the end of August (fingers crossed).

TOD:  I would like to have learned how to play the piano.

Me, too.   ;D

Me, three...I took piano lessons for about six years but never practiced enough. ::)

So, as much as I would love to be able to play the piano, I probably would only be able to if I woke up one morning and could just miraculously be able to play.

Cilla, BK has mentioned that he holds back some copies for just such emergencies.

The piano is my choice also. The closest that I ever got to playing the piano was when I played the accordion back in the 1950's. When I went to sell the accordion in the 1970's, the accordion dealer did not want it. So when he stepped into his back room, I left his shop, leaving the accordion setting on his store floor.

TOD:

When I was in grade school I always wanted to learn the saxaphone. Closest I got was a recorder.

As for favorite saxaphone players...hmmm...I guess that blonde guy from the group SPANDAU BALLET. He is all I can think of.
