Avatar 1:21pm JENN XO:

"I never thought I was a great actress," Brooke confessed. "Maybe I would have been better if I'd worked harder at it. But I really enjoyed my career and what I was doing. I played a lot of villainesses and rather enjoyed it. It got to the stage where if they wanted a villainess, or someone to play `the other woman', casting directors would say, `Let's get somebody like Hillary Brooke.' "

@Jack -Behind the green door is a mysterious private club where "a happy crowd" play piano, smoke and "laugh a lot", and inside which the singer is not allowed.
  1:40pm Jack:

@Jenn - Thanks! I think the phrase "behind the green door" made my mind flash back to the classic porno movie. I could never figure out what was behind that green door either...

is that Thurls Ravenscroft on Mr. Mambo!?!

Shawn G, I was wondering the same thing, and a (very cursory) Google search seems to indicate that it is instead another one of Thurl's numerous sound-alikes.

When I was 15 my friends dad commented that all we were interested in was in "findin that green door." I did'nt know what he meant at the time but I am pretty sure I do now.

@Gaylord - DIG IT while you can before these swell obsolete stations swap formats to 24 hour infomercials !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@JENN XO: I don't need persuasion. My Predicta set (yes, I own one of the modern ones; best purchase I ever made) is locked on MeTV, Antenna TV, and the like — and now Decades! But yes, basic cable (or digital TV, if you watch that way) has finally been worth it.
Avatar 2:16pm JENN XO:

He only plays music out of his own collection. While KDHX has a large and varied music library, it pales in comparison to Gabriel's, which dates back to the 1920s and includes approximately 50,000 records, tapes and CDs.

During breaks, the portly man rolls up the sleeves of his blue and black flannel shirt and shuffles over to the suitcases, the cuffs of his faded black denim pants stopping at the tops of his dusty wingtips with worn soft rubber soles.

He flips through his tapes looking for some song that probably only he could remember. Gabriel has spent the better part of the past three years transferring his old vinyl sides to the computer so he can burn them onto CDs, which are easier for him to carry.

Back in the day, I would have four or five of those suitcases filled up with 45's, 78's and everything you can imagine, Gabriel says. That was like movin' your whole house.This suitcase DJ system has been with Gabriel as long as he's been on the air. And he's been on the air a long, long time.

Rex - PLEASE get the Flock-Rocker on your show !!!!!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Gaylord Fields:

@JENN XO: You are wise. I hold onto cable primarily for baseball, but I'm considering cutting the cord now that I can pick up all these retro channels free over the airwaves, the way God/Satan meant us to! I'd also miss TCM, but all the retro movie channels would alleviate the pain.

All KDHX on-air talent are unpaid volunteers. With Gabriel's connections in the music community, he could probably get a paying job on a commercial radio station. He refuses.

I won't play the rap crap, he says. I don't even know what that Nelly is talking about. Who is this guy anyway? I'd rather play Memphis Slim or Roy Acuff. These men are singing about being so poor they can't afford to take a bath. Now I know what they're talking about.

Gabriel more than plays the blues. He lives them. After the financial meltdown with his theater and record store, Gabriel says he lives off his monthly Social Security check for income.

His wife, he says, left him some time ago.

I'm a bitch on wheels to know, Gabriel says. Don't nobody get along with me for too long. When she left, I just said, OK, I'll miss you but leave the keys to the refrigerator.

As you can see, - he rubs his round belly - she did.
