Sinatra's 100th!

Tomorrow would have been Frank's 100th birthday! As I was driving home tonight, I thought back to the year of 2003, when I did a book signing in Hoboken, NJ in a snow storm at an Antique store :) Only a few people could make it to the store, due to the storm. Rankin/Bass storyboard artist Don Duga had some of his art at the store. I remember looking around this small town, thinking of Frank. It was very historic looking. For his birthday, we will be appearing at another Antique store...Scott's Vintage, which is also very historic :) It is going to be 61 degrees out! Maybe we will play outside again and get car and truck honks from the passer byes!

NPR/MARKETPLACE The Making of Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer show

Friday! After spending a nice day with Denise and then Josh, I heard this NPR/MARKETPLACE show on the expressway (behind two gaper's delays/accidents) :) It was short but fun! It wasn't Paul Coker, Jr. and I after all. It was changed to a MAKING OF Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer show! Starting with Paul Soles (Hermey) and my good friend Bill Giles (Sound Engineer) and then myself. I did suggest them to the interviewer Emma Jacobs (Who is a Canadian, as are Soles and Giles). Fun on I-294! Black Friday/Cyber Monday cleaned us out on most of our books, I picked up all the printer could do by today for my appearance tomorrow PLUS back orders and we'll have a short supply for orders placed right now for Christmas! So order soon! Ironically, my mailbox had a package from Paul Coker, Jr. today of more HEAT MISER and SNOW MISER cards! I have been doing a Rudolph interview with The Huffington Post today, which I think will appear tomorrow. Television on Tuesday on ME & YOU on THE U WCIU Ch. 26...not sure if we are taping or going live yet. Many more radio requests today tune in to your local station :)

Our NPR show may air this afternoon...doing some Chicago television Tuesday, more to follow

Merry Christmas!
