Still in Love with Lucy

Dear Fellow Lucyfans:
"I Love Lucy: The Final Years" on DVD
Many thanks for the nice e-mail this past week regarding the release of "I Love Lucy: The Final Years (Seasons 7, 8 & 9)." I'm glad people are enjoying both the programs and the bonus material that was included in the set.
Hopefully, if this package sells well, we will be able to convince the powers-that-be at CBS that there is also a market for The Lucy Show. I'd love to see that series be given its due, along side many of the other sitcoms of the early 1960s.
The 1962-63 "premiere" season alone includes a long list of wonderfully funny shows: "Lucy Waits Up for Chris," "Lucy Puts Up a TV Antenna," "Together for Christmas," "Chris' New Years Eve Party," "Lucy and Her Electric Mattress," "Lucy and Viv Put In a Shower," "Lucy Visits the White House," etc., etc.
Let's keep our fingers crossed!
Janet Waldo Interview Rescheduled on "STAR NOTES"
Because of a bad case of spring allergies -- mine! -- our interview with actress Janet Waldo, originally scheduled for our "Star Notes" internet radio show this past Saturday, has been rescheduled for this coming Saturday, March 24.
Janet, of course, was the actress who played Peggy Dawson ("Keep jiggling, Peggy") in the "Young Fans" episode of I Love Lucy, and played Lucy's sister in a first-season episode of The Lucy Show. (There's that title again!)
If you have questions you would like to ask our guest, 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:

Again, STAR NOTES is presented "live" every Saturday afternoon -- 1-3PM Pacific Time; 4-6PM Eastern Time. Repeats will air daily: Sundays 11AM - 1PM (Eastern Time); and Monday-thru-Friday 4-6PM (Eastern Time).
