Dennis the Menace' Creator Dies.
Hank Ketcham, whose lovable scamp "Dennis the
Menace" tormented cranky Mr. Wilson and amused readers of comics for
decades, has died at age 81. Ketcham had suffered from heart disease and cancer.
Ketcham stopped drawing the weekday strip at the end of 1994 but let it
continue under a team of artists and writers.
Inspired by the antics of his 4-year-old son, Ketcham began the strip in
1951. In March, Ketcham's panels celebrated 50 years of publication ÷
running in 1,000 newspapers, 48 countries and 19 languages.
Despite its longevity, the strip changed little since the 1950s. Dennis was
always a freckle-faced "five-ana-half" - an appealing if aggravating
mixture of impishness and innocence.
Henry King Ketcham was born March 14, 1920, in Seattle and grew up there. He
recalled he was no more than 6 when he knew he wanted to be a cartoonist.
One day he watched a family friend sketch Barney Google and other
then-popular cartoon figures.
In 1938, he dropped out of the University of Washington after his freshman
year and went to Southern California to work as an animator, first for
Walter Lantz, creator of "Woody Woodpecker," and then for Walt Disney.
Ketcham worked on "Pinocchio," "Bambi," "Fantasia" and Donald Duck
shorts. When the United States entered World War II, he enlisted in the Navy, where
he was put to work drawing cartoons for Navy posters, training material and
war bond sales.
The cartoonist moved to Switzerland, where lived in Geneva for 17 years,
relishing the peace of being thousands of miles away from business
associates. He returned to the United States only infrequently and used the
Sears catalogue to keep abreast of details of the changing American way of
life for his strip.
He stopped drawing the Sunday strip himself in the mid-1980s but carefully
supervised the process. He kept up the weekday strip until the end of 1994.
JACK SCOTT ... It's a "Canadian Thing" Warren Cosford Speaks Out.
Many of you know that I've been a fan of Jack Scott's since I was a teenager. Actually, it's
been a source of amusement for many of my friends and the people I've worked with over the years.
Most don't "get it". For example a Canadian Internet "Broadcast" facility lists ONE Jack
Scott record on their Rockabilly Site. And that is one more than 1050 CHUM were playing
in their final days. That's not only amazing ... it's astounding! Who ARE these idiots?
Well...in one case they're Idiots who failed. In the other they're Idiots who are getting
ready to fail.
What first drew me to Jack was the fact he is Canadian born
in Windsor. In 1958 I'd never heard of anyone who sang Rock and Roll who was Canadian. Yeah ...
I know ... Paul Anka charted Diana in 1957. But that wasn't Rock and Roll. Anka only ever wanted
to be Frank Sinatra. Diana et al was Paul and a bunch of studio musicians in New York.
Paul quickly moved to Las Vegas.
Jack and his band first recorded in Detroit's only studio.
They had a "regional hit" in '57. Beginning in June of 1958 Billboard charted 19 more in 41
months. Jack's background vocal group The Chantones were from Windsor. There were very
few Rock and Singers who charted through the era of the Payola Hearings.
While producing The Evolution of Rock for CHUM in 1975
Jack and I became friends. More of The Story is here:
I've done everything from arranging for his first Greatest Hits album (Al Mair at Attic is a fan)
to singing with him on stage at a Buddy Holly Memorial in Clear Lake Iowa headlining a show
that featured Carl Perkins and Wanda Jackson. No small feat considering I can't sing.
At any rate ... in typical Canadian fashion, his contributions
to the early days of Rock and Roll have never been acknowledged in Canada. I'm not sure he
cares. But I do.
Recently, in England, Robert Plant requested a personalized
autograph. In Winnipeg, so did Burton Cummings. But to The Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame
he doesn't exist. It's not for lack of effort. My effort. They just seem to have other
things on their mind.
Like I said. It's a "Canadian Thing".
While we spend millions on Factor and soon Radio Starmaker to "beef up" an Industry in the name
of Culture we ignore a truly unique pioneer who never asked for anything.

Loretta Lynn debuts Tennessee Museum>
May 26, 2001 - Country music celebrities and more than 1,000 of Loretta Lynn's friends,
relatives and fans celebrated the grand opening Saturday of a museum dedicated to her life as
a "Coal Miner's Daughter" and country music legend. Naomi Judd, George Jones and Lynn's sister
Crystal Gayle were among those at the site of the new Coal Miner's Daughter Museum at Lynn's
home west of Nashville. The museum replaces an earlier one that had been on the property for years.
The museum includes items like Lynn's first bedroom furniture, bought for $200 from a musician
in Hank Williams Sr.'s band. The furniture once belonged to Williams himself.
"I paid him back $10 a month, 'cause we didn't have any money," Lynn said.
The native of Butcher Holler, Ky., was born the daughter of a coal miner in a one-room log
cabin. She married at age 13, and had her first child the next year.
Lynn scored her first hit "Honky Tonk Girl" by driving coast to coast with her husband
visiting radio stations to promote it. As she gained confidence, Lynn began writing and
performing more personal songs about her life.
The museum includes an old touring bus nicknamed The Coal Miner, and cars driven by Lynn
and her husband. Lynn said she wrote "Fist City," a song that threatens violence to a woman
who shows too much interest in her husband, in one of the Cadillacs on display.

ELVIS FACT: Memorial Day - U.S.S. Arizona Benefit.
In 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and sunk the U.S.S. Arizona, entombing 1,177 of
the 2,403 people lost that day. On March
25, 1961 Elvis gave a benefit performance in Hawaii, raising $64,696
or over 10% of the total cost to build the memorial. Elvis had returned from duty in
the Army the year before and both Col. Parker and Scotty Moore had served in the military
in Hawaii. Scotty described the concert as having a "homecoming feel to it".
The memorial was dedicated on Memorial Day 1962.

Bluesman Willie Foster dead at 79.
May 21, 2001 - Internationally known harmonica player Willie Foster died early Sunday of an
apparent heart attack, a family member said.
Son-in-law Anthony Evans said he found Foster, 79, unconscious in his hotel room early Sunday in
Jackson, Tennessee, where the two performed at a private party Saturday night.
"We played until 12 and went back to the hotel and he was just as happy as could be," Evans
said. "I left for about an hour and a half and came back and he wasn't conscious."
Evans, a drummer, said it appeared Foster had a heart attack.
Foster had been performing regularly and was scheduled to travel to Norway in two weeks for
an engagement, Evans said.
An Army veteran of World War II, Foster said he first performed on stage when he was called up to
play during a USO show in London that featured Betty Grable and boxer Joe Lewis.
Born September 19, 1921, Foster had lost both legs to illness and was legally blind. He said he
was born in a field near Leland, Mississippi, where his mother was picking cotton. He said he
was told he was born on a cotton sack spread on the ground.
Over the years, Foster traveled the world and at times teamed with greats such as Muddy
Waters. The two met when Foster was a teen-ager. Years later, their paths crossed again in Chicago.
Foster said he discovered the blues in 1928, when he walked into the Rexall Drug Store in Leland,
Mississippi, and the owner let him put a harmonica on lay-away.
He got his first paying music job in St. Louis around 1950.

Joey Ramone R.I.P. (1951-2001).
Joey Ramone (listen to the Punk Show), godfather of Punk and lead singer of the legendary Ramones,
died Sunday, April 15, after a four year battle with cancer.
Ramone passed away at 2:40 p.m. ET in New York of complications from lymphoma. He was 49.
Joey Ramone was born Jeffrey Hyman on May 19, 1951. His career started during the early 1970s
glam-rock era, when he played in several New York bands -- occasionally under the name Jeff Starship.
He founded the Ramones in 1974 with friends Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy. Each adopted the surname
Ramone, after a stage name (Ramon) used by Paul McCartney during the earliest Beatles days.
The Ramones created a new brand of DIY rock based in four chords, punchy hooks and
brilliantly simple lyrics that combined gritty, street-smarts with infectious pop charm
and undeniable New York attitude.
The Ramones also became known for their 1950s hoodlum-inspired trademark look of black leather
motorcycle jackets, bowl haircuts, t-shirts, ripped jeans and Converse hi-top sneakers.
Joey himself stood towering well over six-feet tall and hidden behind purple-tinted
spectacles. His fist-pumping, frontman stance led the Ramones with a "1,2,3,4!" count
for over 2,000 shows. In 1979, the Ramones appeared in the Roger Corman movie "Rock'n'Roll
High School," recording the title song for the soundtrack. Ten years later they contributed
the title track to "Pet Sematary," based on the book by Stephen King. But mainstream
crossover success consistently eluded them. Although their fiercely delivered, winkingly
inane pop songs about social misfits were hailed as rock classics, none ever cracked the Top 40.
Their last real stab at commercial success came in a bizarre 1980 collaboration with
producer Phil Spector -- a session that bassist Dee Dee Ramone recalled most for
Spector's pulling a gun on the band inside his Beverly Hills mansion.
In the past year, Ramone had been working on solo material and organizing shows in New York
nightclubs with some of his favorite acts including the Independents and Jesse Malin.
He spoke endlessly of Ronnie Spector -- former member of the Ronettes and ex-wife of
legendary producer Phil Spector. Ramone worked as co-producer on her 1999 EP
She Talks To Rainbows. He had also made peace with former drummer Marky Ramone who
worked with Joey on some of his recent solo material.

D.J. BILL MACK SAYS GOODBYE TO THE MIC.
One of the most prominent and influential DJs in country music history has
retired. Bill Mack, who won a Grammy for writing the song "Blue," turned off
his microphone on Thursday (March 29) at Fort Worth, Texas, radio station
WBAP, where he became nationally famous for his overnight show. Mack, who
began in radio in 1951 and worked as an announcer for Bob Wills and Buck
Owens, joined WBAP in 1969 and had been there since - save for a six-year
spell in the 1980s when the station fired and rehired him. Mack wrote "Blue"
in 1958 for Patsy Cline, but it wasn't a hit until LeAnn Rimes launched her
career with it in 1996. Bill Mack, the prominent country DJ who retired last
Thursday (March 29) from the Fort Worth, Texas, station WBAP-AM, is starting
a new program on satellite radio. Mack, whose songwriting credits include
the song "Blue," has signed with XM Satellite Radio for a show to begin
sometime this summer.

Benny Martin, Born May 8, 1928 in Sparta, TN - Died March 13 at the age of 72.
Benny Martin was one of bluegrass music's premiere fiddlers and the inventor of the 8-string
fiddle. Born to a musical family in Sparta, Tennessee, he made his debut on a local radio station
when he was only eight. He played in a local band for a while and when he was 13 went to Nashville
to work with Big Jeff and the Radio Playboys at WLAC. He remained with the group for nearly ten
years, and also began working as a session man for Dot Records. Martin also recorded a solo album
on the Pioneer label; one of his early singles, "Me and My Fiddle," became his signature song.
Frequently, Martin worked as a sideman for such performers as Bill Monroe, Roy Acuff, Kitty Wells
and Flatt & Scruggs. He founded his own band in 1954 and also briefly joined the Grand Ole Opry.
During the mid-'50s he was managed by Col. Tom Parker and opened for Elvis Presley 35 times.
This was not a great time to be a country performer, and Martin began doing more session
and sidework than solo recording. In 1963 he had his only chart hit, "Rosebuds and You."
In the mid-'60s, he briefly teamed with Don Reno and recorded a gospel album. Martin
continued working behind others, performing at festivals and recording frequently on
various labels through the early '80s, when his health began failing.

Stan Beaver has been a professional entertainer since
appearing on his father's TV show in Atlanta, GA. at age 5.

Stan has worked with many famous people in his career.
People like Tom T. Hall, Jeannie C. Riley, Carl Perkins, Ray Charles,
Hoyt Axton, Faron Young, and the Righteous Brothers, just to name a few.
'Way back in 1963 (he was just a kid then) Stan went in to RCA Recording Studio in Nashville
and recorded a song called "I GOT A ROCKET IN MY POCKET" (Petal Records # 1012)
Just a little novelty song about beating the Russians to the moon....but it got a lot
of radio and TV airplay. Now the original records are collector's items worth $35 to $50,
if you can find one in good condition.
"I GOT A ROCKET IN MY POCKET" has been re-issued, world wide on several
various artists LP's and CD's in Germany, England, Australia and most of Europe.
Stan's newest recording is a CD featuring the original 1963 recording of
"I GOT A ROCKET IN MY POCKET" and other vintage recordings,
PLUS some newly recorded material. We KNOW you'll like it!
And a new CD of Contemporary Christian music, most written by Stan himself.
On May 8th, 2000, due in part to "I GOT A ROCKET IN MY POCKET" Stan was inducted
into the "ROCKABILLY HALL OF FAME". An honor not given to just anyone.
He's in good company with such Rockabilly heroes as Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins,
and Roy Orbison. Stan and his dad (Leon Beaver) worked together on stage
for many years until his dad passed away in 1999.
But now a new generation is coming up. Backing Stan on
drums is his own son, Joel Beaver. Joel is only 13 years old but is already a seasoned
professional drummer, having played both concert and recording dates with his dad and others.
"The Stan Beaver Show" is a wholesome, family oriented show, featuring:
Rockabilly oldies, classic country music and comic impressions of famous
entertainers including Elvis, Bill Anderson, Johnny Cash, Hank Snow,
