Our friends who run the exceptional Lorna Luft, Roslyn Kind and Mitzi
Gaynor websites (as well as their myspace pages) have let us know that MITZI
GAYNOR RAZZLE DAZZLE! THE SPECIAL YEARS
will not only be available on DVD on November 8th, but will be broadcast on
several PBS stations this evening.

nostalgic memories, and if you have never seen them at all, you are in for a
brand new treat!
And what a great stocking stuffer the DVD would make for that somebody special

Thanks for hipping us, Shane. I am sure this is exciting news for many
of our visitors.

For the past month or two we have been featuring recordings of the Bing Crosby show with special guest Judy Garland. This week is no exception, as we feature a broadcast from November of 1950.
Judy tears the roof off of the studio with her no holds barred rendition of Rockabye your Baby, as well as an uproarious rendition of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, an extended comedy sketch, and some duets with Bing.
Judy Garlands complete concert that took place on the Boston Common on the night og August 31, 1967 has been posted to the Yahoo version of The Judy Garland Experience.
Judy held Boston in the palm of her hand on this night. On the recording you can hear how much love a city had for one tiny woman.
This one is a real treat to hear.
There have been a few people in the news lately who have erroneously called themselves mavericks. Well, this week over at the Yahoo version of The Judy Garland Experince we are featuring a woman who was truly a maverick, the late, but still great, Hildegard Knef.
Please stop by and listen to her take on some classic standards sung in english.
the real THE JUDY GARLAND EXPERIENCE
