Ben E King     Stand By Me In 1960, a singer named Ben Nelson left the Drifters after failing to gain a salary increase and what he felt to be a fairer share of the group's royalties. He then assumed the more memorable stage name Ben E. King in preparation for a solo career. Remaining on Atlantic Records, King scored his first solo hit with the stylish, Latin-tinged ballad "Spanish Harlem" (1961). "Stand by Me" was his next recording. Written by King along with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, "Stand by Me" was voted one of the Songs of the Century by the Recording Industry Association of America. "Stand by Me" and "Spanish Harlem" were named as two of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and were both also given a Grammy Hall of Fame Award. In 1986, Stand By Me was re-issued following its use as the theme music to the movie of the same name. This video was made in the late 80's, with Ben E King and two of the stars of the film, River Phoenix and Will Wheaton.

Dobie Gray   Out On The Floor This is probably the single biggest and most acclaimed Northern Soul record of all time. This performance was filmed for 'The Strange World Of Northern Soul' in Nashville, in early 1999. Dobie is otherwise best known for his 1965 'The In Crowd' and 1973's 'Drift Away.' He was a versatile vocalist who could handle soul, country, and pop. 'Out On The Floor' remains his most beloved soul anthem.

Steve Bartman Incident The most infamous example of a sports fan influencing the outcome of a game occurred on October 14, 2003. It was the sixth game of the National League Championship Series. The hard-luck Chicago Cubs led the Florida Marlins three games to two and 3-0 in the top of the eighth inning. With the Cubs just five outs away from advancing to the World Series for the first time since 1945, a foul ball drifted one row into Wrigley Field's seats along the third base line. Cubs' left fielder Moises Alou drifted over to make the catch, but spectator Steve Bartman--and several other fans--tried to catch the ball. Bartman (shown here with his arms outstretched) got his hands on it briefly, thus preventing Alou from having a chance to make the catch. Fan interference could not be called because the ball was actually over the seating area. Bartman was escorted from Wrigley Field to protect him from furious fellow Cub fans. Six police cars surrounded his home. Bartman has been in hiding ever since. The Marlins ended up scoring eight runs that inning and won the game 8-3. They also won the seventh game of the NLCS and the 2003 World Series.

Guitar Man Did it get any better than this? I was on hold with a company this morning and this song came on. I found myself drifting away with this after so many years, I was really upset when the person I was speaking to came back to the phone!

Our Gang - Farina Allen Hoskins became part of Hal Roach's Our Gang troupe in 1922 before he was two years old. At first Hoskins' Farina character was androgynous; in some films he's a male, in others he's a female. Farina soon evolved into a fully male character--and one of the most popular of the late silent and early talkies period. Often dressed in a bizarre array of mismatched gaudy clothes, Farina's character was the stereotypical 'pickaninny.' By the time his tenure as Farina on Our Gang ended in 1931, Hoskins was the top-salaried performer, earning $250 per week. Hoskins briefly had a vaudeville act with his sister, but gradually drifted away from show business. 'I prefer jobs where I eat regularly,' he quipped. Hoskins served in WWII, rising to the rank of sergeant. Late in Hoskins' life he worked tirelessly with the disabled and mentally ill. Like his fellow black Our Gang performers, Hoskins was annoyed at the political correctness that caused the series to be heavily edited for TV in the early 1970s. While acknowledging that blacks were steroetyped in the Our Gang comedies, he pointed out that whites were too: There were the stereotypical fat kids, bullies, nerds, freckle-faced kids, and pretty blondes. He was also quick to point out that in an era when much of America was segregated, the racially mixed Our Gang kids played, socialized, and went to school together. Hoskins died of cancer a month before his 60th birthday in 1980.

Our Gang - Miss Crabtree June Marlowe played the charming blonde teacher, Miss Crabtree, in six Our Gang comedies from the early sound period. Marlowe was born Gisela Goetten in St. Cloud, MN in 1903. She was a prolific actress in silent films during the 1920s, appearing in films opposite John Barrymore and Rin Tin Tin. Her career faltered with the introduction of talking pictures, and by 1930 she was starting to drift away from acting. Marlowe had a chance meeting with Our Gang director Robert McGowan in a Los Angeles department store. McGowan was searching for an actress to portray the teacher in the Our Gang comedies. After producer Hal Roach suggested that the brunette Marlowe wear a blonde wig to match the hair of the lead kid in the series, Jackie Cooper, she was given the part. Marlowe and Cooper were paired together in three Our Gang films: Teacher's Pet (1930), School's Out (1930), and Love Business (1931). Our Gang devotees refer to them as the 'Miss Crabtree trilogy.' She also played a small role in Little Daddy (1931). In addition to her work in Our Gang, Marlowe appeared in Laurel and Hardy's first feature film, Pardon Us (1931). After Cooper left the Our Gang troupe in 1931 to appear in MGM features, the Miss Crabtree character was used only twice more, in Shiver My Timbers (1931) and Readin' and Writin' (1932). In 1933, Marlowe married Hollywood businessman Rodney Sprigg and retired from motion pictures to become a housewife. In her later years, she suffered from Parkinson's disease, dying at age 80 from its complications on March 10, 1984.
