Jeremy Gelbwaks - Original Chris Partridge The Partridge Family was an ABC musical sitcom that ran for four seasons from 1970 to 1974. The show's premise was that recently widowed mother Shirley Partridge and her five children decide to form a pop group to make ends meet and earn money for the children's college funds. The show was loosely based on the real family musical group The Cowsills. In the show's first season Chris Partridge, the drummer and youngest son, was played by Jeremy Gelbwaks. (He seldom had more than two lines in an episode. In fact, in the last episode Gelbwaks appeared in, he had no lines whatsoever.) After the 1970-71 season Gelbwaks was replaced in the cast by Brian Forster. The reason why the change was made varies depending upon whom you ask. Gelbwaks' father was a federal government employee whose job forced him to relocate from California to Virginia just as the show's first season was concluding. The move made it difficult for Jeremy to continue his role as Chris Partridge. However, stories persist that Gelbwaks was a hellion on the set and the show's producers wanted to get rid of him. Danny Bonaduce (who played middle son Danny Partridge--and was admittedly no angel himself) once stated in an interview that Gelbwaks was "psychotic." David Cassidy (who played oldest son and teen heartthrob Keith Partridge) apparently couldn't stand Gelbwaks' on-set antics--which included kicking other cast members just before the director called "Action!" Whether Gelbwaks left on his own accord because of his family's out-of-state move or whether he was was forced out of the cast because of his bad behavior remains a matter of conjecture. Perhaps it was a combination of the two. ABC received zero letters of complaint regarding the cast change. Gelbwaks never worked in show business again. According to a fansite, Gelbwaks is married and lives in New Orleans. Gelbwaks appeared on Danny Bonaduce's short-lived syndicated talk show in 1995 when most of The Partridge Family cast gathered for a 25th anniversary reunion. Both Chrises made appearances on that program and there seemed to be no animosity among those who were present. (David Cassidy was unavailable to appear, however.)

Les Paul and Mary Ford How High the Moon Not only did Les Paul invent the electric guitar but also "over sampling" an editing trick that made the sound even bigger.

Dance Marathon Craze During the 1920s and 1930s, dance marathons were a popular diversion in the United States. It is estimated that at their pinnacle, dance marathons were the main source of livelihood for 20,000 frequent competitors, officials, promoters, and musicians. Rules varied from place to place, but generally a couple stayed in the running for cash prizes as long as they kept moving on the dance floor. Only short respites were allowed every few hours for meals and rests. One event in New York City in 1937 lasted 481 hours--slightly more than 20 days! By the late 1930s, several cities and states had outlawed dance marathons because of the health dangers that accompanied sleep deprivation. This colorized photo from 1925 shows a typically exhausted couple.

MECO - Close Encounters: Disco Theme (1977) Remember Meco? He was selling records by the truckload in the 1970s. This successful disco dance composer, American music producer Domenico Monardo made his mark in the business by creating highly popular strings of LP's and 45's; all in the middle of the 1970s with many film titles as his source of inspiration. Domenico had the opportunity working with Gloria Gaynor on an array of songs in the early 70s with a production company he had help create."Never Can Say Goodbye" was the 1st time a whole album would include non-stoppable dance beats set on a vinyl recording. Remember Donna Summer? She imitated this too. It wasn't Meco's recorded idea though. He was just a part of it at the time. He continued working with Gaynor in that time as well as briefly getting involved with Diana Ross. This time is was as a studio session musician. With the movies, turns out that he was just a fan of them like you. He was really impressed with the "Star Wars" movie soundtrack. He loved the film so much that he wanted to be a part of it. This version of John Williams "Close Encounters" theme was released in the later half of 1977 on an LP called by Meco called 'Encounters Of Every Kind,' from which the 45 single was played on AM radio for weeks after. Meco continued on with the "dance version" of movie compositions right through the early 1980s. He did among others, "Superman," "The Wizard of Oz," "Star Trek," and was especially known for getting his John Williams disco version of "Star Wars" played on radio waves worldwide. The album that sold bigger than the film soundtrack was entitled "Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk." *E*

 Every Morning - Sugar Ray Sound familiar? The chorus of the song samples "Suavecito" by the Chicano music group Malo, as well as Hugh Masekela's 1968 hit "Grazing in the Grass".
