Transcript Howard . . . modeling Italian suits for Baroni's in the Arboretum in a photo' in the daily planet (Statesman). I saw "TJsh" at the Cellar this past Sunday night during the finals of Starsearch. She looked wonderful! I hadn't seen her since Backstreet went out of business . . . Rick Gilbreth and I were discussing boats and the season is just around the corner... he has a wonderful boat . . . I'm sure that it stays full all spring and summer too . . . Mike Milhim of Michael's Antiques always has great boats also . . . Bob Talbott is in Brackenridge, go by and visit or send him a card ... we hope he gets to feeling better soon. . . he's a bartender at Uncle Charlie's. Have you heard about the Walk of the Stars proposed for Sixth Street . . . with the big two-story star being erected over the intersection of 6th and Red River . . . maybe we can put a few stars down of our own . . . The Sixth Street Conservation Association plans stars for Jerry Jeff Walker, and Stevie Ray Vaughn first ... I would have expected the first to go to Willie 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 1 st 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. TViple Dip (Nicole, P.T. and Tiffany) opened their Double Delight show last Wednesday with a choreographed number from 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 TWT that Nick John who used to be a bar- back 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 ofthe 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 . . . Ber- nie Siben discusses the Starsearch, in his opinion, elsewhere in the Mirror. I finally got to hear K. T. Taylor sing "Upon this Rock" and Pbur on the Power" • I've got to say he is sensational . . . 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 7:30 . . . 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 ofthe 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 Starsearch 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 . . . Despite all of the above ... the Starsearch finals were wonderful! Speaking of wonderful . . . Sylvester ... I mentioned earlier that he's at Hall's this Sunday ... is one of my all-time favorites and I play all his records such as "You Make Me Feel Mighty Real," "Disco Heat," "Do You Want To Ftonk" and on and on . . . and his latest on Warner Labels . . . Someone Like You" which is on the top 10 ... For a decade, he's charmed the pants off everyone on and off the dancefloor . . . this is a show not to be missed and I'm so excited because Steve asked me to introduce him . . . I'm wearing my dancing shoes . . . Have a Heart, be friendly & thanks Austin Supporters . . . it's just my opinion. . . .
