I would have expected the first to go to Wlllie Nelson .. . maybe Divine? ... who would yo have immortalized in cement ... old husbands don't count! ... Speaking of Stars, Tony Rose, the fabulous impersonator who does characters ah-la Jim Bailey, Charles Pierce will bring his incredible tour to Texas beginning March 1st at Snuffy's, then Bolt in San Antonio, back to Aus­tin and Badlands. He's opening the show here with Alexis from Dynasty . . . he does many, many characters ... this is a one of a kind show! I forgot to let you know the Blister Sis­ters will be at Badlands on the 22nd of February before Tony Rose's show on March 1st at Snuffy's, Triple Dip (Nicole, P.T. and Tif­fany) opened their Double Delight show last Wednesday with a choreog­raphed number ftom Dream Girls that was the tea . . . they also had a male impersonator who was so good that I cruised her before I found out he was a she . . . sometimes you need a pro­gram to know . . . I noticed in TW'I: that Nick John who used to be a bar­back at the Crossing has released his new single, Planet 9 on Megatone Records ... not only is he cute, but he can sing! Speaking of singing, a West Coast recording label has listened to Gregg Barthge tapes and are very interested in him as a singer and songwriter . . . Gregg comes up with Dolli from San Antonio all the time when the Headliners are here and both he and Dolli have volunteered to help with fundraisers . . . Good Luck Gregg! Welcome to the staff of the Mirror, Reggie, our new in-house art director ... some of you know him due to the Boo Boo Kitty Club and their parties . we know him because of his great folio! Also, we have a new staff member in Houston, co-publisher Nick's brother, Alexis Loutchaninoff who will be calling on accounts there. There's a touching phenomenon happening at the Cellar on Sundays . . . Ray sums up his feelings about the live entertainment competitions in his sentiment of wishing he could help each of them with their careers ... helping them with demos and get­ting the recognition they deserve and the financial rewards that their discov­ery would bring ... the performers have a forum to perfect their talents and the audience receives the kind of rewards only a live performance can bring. Ray and George are providing them with this format and everyone is having a wonderful time . . . The judges (Ray Marshall, Travis Rich, and Shannon McCullough) had a difficult time selecting the finals winner of this series . . . the winner won by one point whatever that means . . . the diversity of the singerss and their mate­rial makes the competition difficult to gage ... it becomes as much a matter of taste as well as entertainment •.. Ray wishes he could give each of them big prizes. The winner of the first series was Jeff Caseltine, second was Sam Lohr, and third was Heather Raye ... Ber­nie Siben discusses the Starsearch, in his opinion, elsewhere in the Mirror. I finally got to hear K. T. Taylor sing "Upon this Rock" and Pour on the Power" ... I've got to say he is sen-sational ... he has a distinctive voice and enormous talent . . . He, Riki (Roland, actually), Melvin, Mary Baldree, Jeff, Leo, Heather, Sam, Freddie, Alvin, Floyd and some of the audience got the spirit and closed the show with some ,gospels. The final song was a rousing ver­sion, Austin style,' of the song of the year . . . That's What Friends Are For! It's happening at the Cellar on Sundays beginning at 7:3(l ... This Sunday is the Mr. All American, Peter Roomey and his show ... Gar­rett and John will join him on the bill Garrett was formerly with the Sons and Daughters of Fred and Ethel ... get ready he's back ... Mr. Frank Benge who founded S&DoF&E ... he's forming a new group . . . are you going to team up with Joni again? From the looks of the pictures of the opening of Petticoat Junction, there was a capacity crowd enjoying the new facility. I missed the opening as one of my sons was in town and wanted me to drive him around to visit friends, etc. I almost forgot ... I loved Starse-arch Sunday night ... only one thing flawed my enjoyment ..• the couple of obnoxious people who sat just to my left up front •.. only a few feet from the performers . . . several of them sang along with the performers, made tacky comments about their crotches to their choice of songs ... at a male dancer show I could under­stand cruising only their crotch. but for this type of entertainment perhaps your ear should be your guide . . . there is not excuse for this kind of rudeness .. • 100 people were trying to enjoy themselves and be enveloped by the evening ... A couple of people acted like fools . . . I was really embarassed that you thought tipping a dollar in the middle of a dramatic part of their performance could make up for the spectacle they were making of themselves . . . please learn some manners or at least sit at the back so those of us who appreciate these excel­lent performers can do so without your offkey singing and snide, rude remarks ...

With the excep­tion of their first hit "Big In Japan," most of their music does not have crossover appeal. "Jerusalem" is pretty and smooth, (121 :t bpm), very Alphaville. Those of you who are familiar with this group will feel very at ease with this cut. Club wise, I don't feel it will go very far, which is very unfortunate for this is the group that changed nu-wave music a few years ago. If you are not familiar with Alphaville's music, ask for some of their records next time you are at a record shop. Who knows?, perhaps you will discover that not all music has to be commercial um-pah to like it. AUSTIN MIRROR 473-6811 by Sassy Saundra Clarke Evening Ladies! Well, I am firmly ensconced in my new villa overlooking downtown and a very busy jogging trail. I won't tell you where it is, but it's not hard to find (like Rocket Man's was). I put up racy leopard wallpaper to match my housecoat, nightgown, and slippers. I hung my light fixture that I won in Las Vegas outside. (It's in the shape of a set of dice complete with flashing red lights). I've installed a revolving front door (like the big bank buildings have). You can tell when you get to the bed­room- I've put in my very own take­a- number machine. (I liked the now­serving- number so and so better, but they were out of them.) Next to my bed is my rechargable vibrator (for those VERY FEW lonely nights that I spend). I am in the process of having a back­door put in (to my apartment). I find it's much easier for crowd flow.

This is Bananarama at its best. Don'tr expect anything like "Venus," that was an exception to the rule for these three girls. Smooth vocals and a hypnotic melody in the traditional style of Bananarama. At about 107 bpm's, it is hard not to like this release. The single includes three mixes: the number one mix. tricky mix, and a dub mix. The tricky mix is a somewhat jazzier version with some very nice sax solos. The dub version is basically an instrumental version of the number one mix. Pick this one up next time you go out on a shopping spree: trust me, you' ll like it. Stop-Come On Dance Ahora­Damabi International. If you like salsa and Latin rhythms, you will definitely like this one. These are the people that broght you "Wake Up" last year. Perhaps not as energized as their pre­vious release, but with all the elements needed to show a pattern in this group's style. The single includes an extended version and a dub version. Both cuts are over eight minutes long. In some cases a long cut can help a song if th'ere are enough harmonic variations. (Example: Bronski Beat's "C'mon, C'mon"). Unfortunately. that is not the case with this cut, it is monotonously repetitious. However, ll is still a good dance cut. Comment: I am certain many of you are disappointed with the American Music Awards. Diana Ross wore mostly old dresses and Janet Jackson barely got anything. Actually, I am dis­appointed at the fact that she won at all. No, I do not like Miss Jackson's music and that is precisely why I don't play it. She is a fantastic dancer and she can also smg, but her material leaves a lot to be desired. Perhaps the American audience's taste is changing for the best. . . Perhaps it is time record companies re-examine what appeals to the public and re-define what commercial music is. About eight years ago, radio stations decided "disco" was dead. Actually, it ·was re­defined as "dance music." Music got to the point where you would go to a bar and hear the same music you heard on the radio. For awhile we enjoyed a difference in music, and that was good. Now we have gone full circle. history repeats itself; we hear the same music at clubs and on the radio. Besides record companies and radio stations, D.J. 's need to start doing some more homework and not rely on record pool material exclusively. At the long run ) ou will be the winner, the public who supports us and is eager for new mu ic. E., 9 T Show Time 10:30 Free Draft Beer!
