"STAR NOTES" Premieres Saturday

As we have mentioned in previous newsletters, "Star Notes," a new weekly radio magazine celebrating the life and career of Lucille Ball, will premiere this Saturday -- February 17 -- on Shokus Internet Radio. The show will be presented "live" every Saturday afternoon -- 1-3PM Pacific Time; 4-6PM Eastern Time. Repeats will air daily: Sundays 8-10AM (Pacific Time); and Monday-thru-Friday 1-3PM (Pacific Time).

Each program will include many of the features that were once part of our "Star Notes" magazine -- news updates, trivia contests (with prizes!), a question-and-answer forum, tips on collecting (what's good, what one should be wary of) -- plus elements that radio can add: "live" in-studio interviews with celebrities, sound bites, classic audio recordings, etc. Saturday listeners will have an opportunity to call in and ask questions of our guests.

Our special guests this week will be Jimmy Garrett (who portrayed Jerry Carmichael on The Lucy Show) and Marilyn Borden (of "Teensy and Weensy" fame). In the weeks ahead, guests will include Lucille Ball's longtime personal secretary, Wanda Clark, and Lucy's driver-cum-major domo Frank Gorey (both on February 24); and I Love Lucy film editor Dann Cahn (March 3).

If you have questions you would like to ask our guests, you can either "phone in" during the broadcast -- and be part of the show -- or send your questions in advance via e-mail. The toll-free call-in number is:

1 - 8 8 8 - 7 4 6 - 5 8 7 5
