REMEMBERING MAMA CASS ELLIOTT   Dream a Little Dream Cass Elliot was born Ellen Naomi Cohen on Sept 19th 1941. Her restauranteur father nicknamed her'Cass' after the Trojan princess, Cassandra. She adopted the name Cass Elliot during her teens. The name Mama Cass evolved from her involvement with the Mamas and Papas. This is what John Phillips said about Cass in an interview in August 1995 at Paramount Studios: "Her father had a deli in New York. I remember her as a little, chubby girl, with the stained apron on, behind the counter. [Laughs] We were sort of infamous in that area, and when she got to New York, she knew who we were, but we didn't know who she was. And she had met Denny, and Denny said, "I know this girl that sings wonderfully. We should have her over and sing with her." It happened to be that LSD was actually legal at the time. It wasn't a banned drug or anything. We searched all over the Village and found some contemporary artist who had some and he gave it to us. We were about to take it that night, when the knock on the door came and Cass came in. So we all had it together the same night, for the first time, and I think that formed a bond between the four of us that we just never stopped singing. We just went on and on and on and on, until the trip wore off, which was about four years later." Cass Elliott died July 29, 1974. Contrary to what many people have been led to believe over the years, she did not choke on a sandwich. According to her doctor, the cause was heart failure.

Uniforms- My next video project- I need your help I'm starting to think about my next video, about uniforms, preferably for jobs that either don't exist any more or jobs that haven't worn uniforms in decades. Stewardesses, nurses, gas station attendants and soda jerks come to mind but I need much more. There were so many jobs back in the day that required uniforms but no longer. I need your help! I don't care if you duplicate anyone's answer, just start rattling them off. Any thoughts for songs to use?

Featured Member -Nbmike Hi everyone. My name is Michael “Nbmike” Cormier. I will be turning 44 yrs old this summer, so while I may not be as old as the trees, unicorns, and dinosaurs, I’m definitely older than Compact Discs, MP3 Players, and Plasma TV. I am a single dad to my beautiful daughter Rhiannon (She thinks she’s 14 going on 40, which makes me often feel like I’m 80 lol). Ever since I found this site in November, I have enjoyed the trivia and memories found here. The people here are top notch at providing info when your memory kind of escapes you. I want to thank you all for welcoming me so warmly the last few months, and a big thanks to Steve for creating such a great site. OK, a little about me. I was born here in Saint John, NB Canada in 1965. I grew up in a small community outside of Saint John called Grand Bay, and lived there until I moved to the big city,(lol ….big city for NB, population, 70000 or so) In 1984, I started working as a radio announcer in town doing weekend and swing shifts. The job lasted a couple of years, but started a lifelong love with musical trivia, or even trivia in general. It was there that I found out about such things as plagiarism (Brian Wilson can say it was unintentional, but SURFIN USA just sounds like Chuck Berry’s SWEET LITTLE SIXTEEN with new lyrics)! We also played vinyl records back in those days, so I kinda feel like a dinosaur sometimes. lol After leaving the radio announcing job, I became a jack of all trades, until nagging back problems left me unemployed in 1994, and now I concentrate on raising my child and trying to develop projects. I have always had an interest in writing comedy, and have written some musical parodies that have made a few people laugh on a few occasions. I’m not egotistical about my writing by any means, but I have a rule of thumb. If I’m not laughing when I write the lyrics, then I keep running scenarios through my mind until I find the funniest scenario to me. I figure if I don’t find my writing funny, then how is anybody else supposed to? My hometown has some Hollywood connections. Louis B Mayer’s family moved here from overseas when he was a small child, and he grew up here until he left for Massachusetts when in his late teens, Actor Walter Pidgeon was born and raised here, as well as Lyman Ward, who played Ferris Beuller’s father, and Donald Sutherland was born here, but moved to Nova Scotia with his family when he was a teen. One Hollywood story I have heard is when Walter Pidgeon screen tested for MGM, Louis B Mayer thought he was sucking up to him, and summoned him to his office, and told him in no uncertain terms, that if Walter thought of putting Saint John NB as his hometown was going to gain him favor in Mayer’s eyes, it wasn’t going to work. When he told Mr.Mayer that Saint John WAS his hometown, then they had a laugh together. I am desperately shy in real life, but online I come out of my shell usually. I love participating here, just wish I had more time to contribute. Raising a teenager is like studying for a long and hard exam. You hope you have all the right answers, and you spend every waking hour trying to prepare for what’s coming up, but deep in your heart, you know you’re just flying without a net and hoping for the best, but I wouldn’t trade her for the world. The funny thing is that twenty years ago, I never though I had what it takes to be a Dad. I look forward to meeting new members and continuing to engage in trivia challenges and sharing memories with all. Thanks again for such a warm welcome here.

     Telly Savalas     Who Loves Ya Baby Beginning in 1973 Telly Savalas used his considerable charisma to breathe a little life into this look at a New York detective. Helped by some good location filming in the Big Apple and fairly realistic plots, not to mention that "New York" attitude, Kojak will always stand as an above average 70's cop show.

John Denver Rocky Mountain High In 1972, Denver scored his first top ten album, with Rocky Mountain High, while its title track reached the Top Ten in 1973. In 1974, "Sunshine on My Shoulders" and "Annie's Song" both went to number one, and "Back Home Again" made it to number five. In 1975, he again had two number ones, "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" and "Calypso/I'm Sorry," and a top twenty hit, "Sweet Surrender." Key to Denver's success were his many appearances on television, which in the pre-MTV era of the 1970s, with his long blond hair, embroidered 'western' shirts, affable manner & granny glasses, made him one of the first truly "tele-genic" pop stars. In subsequent years, Denver had a lower-profile career. He had a few more U.S. Top 30 hits as the 1970s ended, but nothing to match the success he enjoyed earlier. As his career slowed down, Denver focused more on humanitarian and sustainability work. He worked extensively on conservation projects and helped to create the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. On October 12, 1997, Denver was killed when the Long-EZ aircraft he was piloting crashed just off the coast of California at Pacific Grove, shortly after taking off from the Monterey Peninsula Airport.

Americas Sweetheart at 61 Happy Birthday to Sally Field! Sally is the daughter of actress Margaret Field and step-father Jock Mahoney, also an actor as well as a stuntman. Sally managed to finish high school, but early on it was clear she would follow in her parents' footsteps, and she soon got the lead role in the 1965 TV series "Gidget", quickly followed by "The Flying Nun" which ran from 1967-1970. American was in love with her wholesome, girl-next-door persona. The role that got Sally noticed as a more serious dramatic actress, was her portrayal of the title character in the TV movie Sybil, a woman suffering from a multiple personality disorder. The part won her an Emmy in the Best Actress category in 1976. Hollywood now saw Sally Field as more than just a pretty face. She had raw talent they were more than happy to exploit. But Sally didn't altogether abondon her comedic side and proved this by starring opposite Burt Reynolds in the two Smokey And The Bandit films. Nevertheless, her best work came through in dramatic roles, and Sally went on to win Oscars in the Best Actress category for both Norma Rae and Places In The Heart. Aside from acting, she has also produced and directed several projects for television, including directing an episode of the acclaimed mini-series, From The Earth To The Moon. Sally has two sons from her first marriage, Peter and Eli. And Samuel, from her second marriage.

Bennett Cerf Interview Part 2 This is the second part of the interview given by longtime What's My Line panelist Bennett Cerf to journalist Robin Hawkins on January 23, 1968. It was part of an oral history project focusing on famous New Yorkers. (The sound occasionally fades in and out.) Again, Bennett provides some interesting anecdotes about his WML colleagues.

OJ Simpson Mother Commercial O.J. Simpson's mother, Eunice, was featured in this commercial for a telephone service. I don't know when this ad was made, but obviously it was before a certain Sunday in 1994.
