Re: “Dancing Lady

Joan Crawford when she was young and beautiful, Clark Gable when he was young, the first movie appearance of Fred Astaire, Franchot Tone, and the Three Stooges, Moe, Larry and Curly; the cast makes this a must-see movie. A down and out dancer finds love and success in this delightful, highly entertaining film. If you are a movie history buff, this is required viewing, with the biggest stars of the 1930s. This is also an example of a pre-code enforcement film, with a revealing burlesque show at the start, and Joan Crawford flaunting her body throughout the movie, dancing in a skimpy outfit, swimming with a muscular Franchot Tone, and in the gym with Clark Gable. This is an early Joan Crawford story, when she was the hero of many poor Great Depression era women with her real life story and movie theme of rags to riches.

Re: “Les Grobstein knows the score

Les is easily the best person on the Score. He is also forever immortal in the sports world, because he was there to record the greatest rant in sports history, which is of course the 1983 Lee Elia, which is on youtube.

The Score got rid of Dan Jiggetts, the only guy on the station who knew something about sports. Then they got rid of Mike Murphy, who was by far the most entertaining and the most professional host, who had the best guests and the best bits.

Now they are left with the just plain unlistenable Boers and Bernstein and Mully and Hanley. McNeil and Spiegel rise to the level of mediocre. What a waste that station has become.
