One of the most beloved radio show hosts of the 1940s and 1950s, Mary Margaret McBride (1899-1976) regularly attracted between six and eight million listeners to her daily one o'clock broadcast. During her twenty years on the air she interviewed tens of thousands of people, from President Harry Truman and Frank Lloyd Wright to Rachel Carson and Zora Neale Hurston. This is her story. Five decades after their broadcast, her shows remain remarkably fresh and interesting. And yet McBride-the Oprah Winfrey of her day-has been practically forgotten, both in radio history and in the history of twentieth-century popular culture, primarily because she was a woman and because she was on daytime radio. Susan Ware explains how Mary Margaret McBride was one of the first to exploit the cultural and political importance of talk radio, pioneering the magazine-style format that many talk shows still use. This radio biography recreates the world of daytime radio from the 1930s through the 1950s, confirming the enormous significance of radio to everyday life, especially for women. In the first in-depth treatment of McBride, Ware starts with a description of how widely McBride was revered in the mid-1940s-the fifteenth anniversary party for her show in 1949 filled Yankee Stadium. Once the readers have gotten to know Mary Margaret (as everyone called her), Ware backtracks to tell the story of McBride's upbringing, her early career, and how she got her start in radio. The latter part of the book picks up McBride's story after World War II and through her death in 1976. An epilogue discusses the contemporary talk show phenomenon with a look back to Mary Margaret McBride's early influence on the format.

Not only will I miss the Saturday Dance, but I’ll also miss Bouchercon 2016, the biggest mystery conference of the year, and held in one of the most fascinating cities on the continent – New Orleans. A few years ago, in advance of the annual conference when it was held in held in San Francisco, I came up with a list of crime films set in the City By The Bay. We move from New York to New Orleans, where the P. I. tries to find a missing person and where, it seems, at each turn there is a bloody corpse. It becomes clear to Angel that he is, in the eyes of the Big Easy’s homicide cops, the most likely suspect in each murder. His client, played by The Bad Lieutenant. Nicholas Cage plays a tough but ultimately heroic cop, whose noble act injures him. It is the residual and unrelenting pain that eventually sends him spiraling into drug addiction and an illegal means to support his habit. The cast is excellent, including Cage who actually lists like a sinking ship, Val Kilmer and Eva Mendes. the film was directed by Norman Jewison after Sam Peckinpah left. The screenwriters were solid though — Terry Southern and Ring Lardner adapted the story from the novel by Richard Jessup. Critics of the day liked it, comparing it favorably to Some might say the best thing about this film is the title song by Paul McCartney and performed by Wings. However, among the James Bond films, this one may have garnered the most attention because it was the first in which Roger Moore replaced Sean Connery as Ian Fleming’s super spy. About drugs and voodoo, the 1973 film was shot in Jamaica and New Orleans with the usual preposterous yet fully engaging chase sequences. Guy Hamilton who did the honors for three other Bond films directed the film. Jane Seymour and Yaphet Kotto also star. The film depicted brothel life in Storyville, the Red Light district of New Orleans. Though prostitution was legal when and where the story took place, objections to the film centered on the love affair between an underage girl and an adult whorehouse patron — and photographer — played by Keith Carradine. Censors also had problems with the screen nudity of then 12-year-old Brooke Shields. Susan Sarandon co-stars, and Louis Malle directed this Louisiana classic released to rave, if not “tsk tsk” reviews. , who returns to New Orleans and his brothel-owning mother after a couple of years in the Army. It appears that his military stint helped the young man sort out his life. However, Mom, who trained her son to satisfy wealthy women for a fee, doesn’t want to let go of her prime earner, even though he’s decided to live a normal life. He just came by to say hello and goodbye. The story gets steamy and more complicated when a beautiful and sexy prostitute, played by sensuous Mena Suvari , shows up. Her surprisingly tender, erotic presence muddies what otherwise would be a clear choice for the troubled young man. However, it is Stanton who makes it more than a high-quality student film. Sonny was released in 2002. Recommended. are the troubled teens. Because of the horrible Louisiana weather, they stumble upon each other. Because of the battered condition of their lonely, lost souls and the need to go somewhere…anywhere… the three slowly bond to discover the road the three of them are now on actually goes somewhere. This is a finely acted movie that seems to have slipped in under the radar. It also stars
