Show Notes - 11/14/2010

Tonight on the broadcast, we welcomed a legend of pop culture. The one and only, Charles Fox. Charles has composed over 100 theme songs for television and movies (many of which carried on to become pop songs continuously on radio). He is responsible for such great themes as "Happy Days", "Laverne & Shirley", "Love, American Style", "The Love Boat" and more. He is also the composer of "Killing Me Softly (with his words)" and Barry Manilow's hit, "Ready To Take A Chance". Charles spoke about his book, KILLING ME SOFTLY...MY LIFE IN MUSIC and some of the stories inside the cover. As her puts it, every song and person he worked with has it's own story behind it. Charles remains very active in music today, having just written a theme song for the city of Beverly Hills.

We also spoke with Carla Gambescia. Carla is the owner of Via Vanti! Restaurant & Gelateria in Mt. Kisco, NY and we learned that she has several passions. Gelato, dogs and charity work. Enter the premise for her visit with us tonigh..Carla has begun a calendar featuring contest winners of a contest that she started in 2009. As Carla states, “This project began when I started to associate dogs’ colorings and markings with yummy gelato flavors – that I feature in my restaurant / gelateria,” says Gambescia. “I now create and feature a Party Dog Flavor-of-the-Month inspired by a one of last’s years 12 winners in my gelato case. I am also passionate about raising money for Guiding Eyes for the Blind and I am hoping that the calendars as well as the entry fees for “Dogs in Party Hats 2011” will continue to support this very important cause as well as celebrate dogs and all the ways they enhance our lives”. We here at Behind The Mike say that you must get these calendars. They are for a great and very necessary cause and this is one of the smartest ways to raise money for a great cause. You can find out more and purchase calendars at the link below. Order extra as gifts for co-workers and family.

We also covered a few news notes on the program tonight. These are also linked below.
