Fox Cancels ‘Do Not Disturb’

Filed under: Television — Charlie Summers @ 1:26 pm

Thank heavens, there is hope for the American public; it solidly rejected the abysmal Do Not Disturb, this season’s attempt to insult the viewer as much as last season’s Cavemen did. Three aired, and done, although Fox is maintaining it’s just taking a week off, to be replaced next Wednesday with a rerun of the also not-so-swift Til Death.

Eddie Carroll’s Benefit for Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 12:05 pm

Received the following information from Eddie Carroll, the writer and performer of the one-man show, Jack Benny: Laughter in Bloom:

I’m on the Board of Directors of the Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters here in LA and they are planning to build a Radio Archives Museum to house all of their radio memorabilia, adjoining the library in Thousand Oaks.

So, to start fund for the project, I agreed to do a benefit Matinee Performance on Sunday,Oct.19th. WELLLL…….!! That 2:30 matinee performance sold out, so I have added a second performance for 7:30 PM that evening.

HOWEVER…, the box office at the Scherr Theater in the Thousand Oaks Arts Center AND Ticketmaster screwed up and didn’t have the info about the added show for a week! So, people who called for tickets were told that show was sold out and weren’t informed that there was a second show.

There [are] indeed tickets still available for the evening show on Sunday Oct.19th.

If you’re in the area, you really do not want to miss this; it benefits a great cause, and if you haven’t seen Mr. Carroll “channel” Jack Benny, you have no idea how spot-on his performance is. For a tiny example, photos of his performance at last year’s Friends of Old-Time Radio convention are posted here on the blog - a small piece of video there, too.

No really…I live. Honest.

For various reasons, we needed to step away a bit from on-line activities for the past few weeks, but we are alive, and will resume our regular posting schedule as soon as possible.
