Last night’s show at Duffy’s Tavern was a ton of fun!

Thanks to all our stringz who came out. And a huge thanks to For The Birds for having us. You guys (and gal) put on such a ridiculously amazing performance! So glad we had the chance to share the stage with you again!

The next shows we have are lined up for February 4th (Aspetta Cafe in Kensington Market) and a valentines show at the Garrison on February 12th! Hope to catch ya’ll there! xo

Shirley Booth (1898–1992) did her best work on the stage and in film, but she also worked in radio and television. She starred on the popular radio series “Duffy’s Tavern,” playing the owner’s daughter, and on television played the title role in “Hazel,” based on the Saturday Evening Post cartoon series. It’s her birthday today. Here she is in a promotion photograph for her appearance in a Red Cross radio drama (from the Jerry Lee On-Line Photo Archive at the Library of American Broadcasting).

Promotional recording (on plastic coated cardboard) for NBC’s groundbreaking weekend radio program, Monitor (1955-1975). The program offered a magazine-of-the-air mix of news, sports, comedy, variety, music, celebrity interviews and other short segments.

In the show’s early years, weather reports were delivered in a breathy, sexy voice by actress Tedi Thurman in the role of “Miss Monitor.”

Several radio comedy shows were revived in the form of regular five-minute Monitor segments, including Duffy’s Tavern, Fibber McGee and Molly and Ethel and Albert. (Wikipedia)

Anna Maria Island, take 3

Yum, this place should be called burger island. I’ve had two really good burgers so far since being here, and considering everything here looks like a total dive as you drive past, they always come as a surprise.

Today’s is from Duffy’s Tavern and was almost exactly on par with Skinny’s (from a couple of days ago) and for all the same reasons. 9/10. They are both great options just depending on which side of the island you are beaching on and how far you want to walk.

I’m totally in love with my nails which are Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Check It Out. Really fun to apply (it was my first time) and has lasted well so far including my abuse from the beach sand.
