Hey radio fans… we have a special schedule today due to football season:

My “Talk To Me” show will be on WSHC this morning from 10:30 AM to Noon. We’ll have 90 minutes for your eclectic song requests, discussion of politics with 3 days to go until all of this is decided, and perhaps some comments on the results of Sandy.

If you are too far away to call in at 304-876-5369 remember you can also Listen Live at our web site from anywhere in the world. Just go to and click on “Listen Live” and you can join our regular morning call-in group (join Ralph, Stu, Bobby and Oinky and the rest of the gang… we’d love to have you on the team.

Elliott Simon’s shown is on before ours from 9:00 to 10:30 AM.

Marian Mercer with Jerry Orbach

Tony winning actress Marian Mercer died at age 75. Known for playing in a supporting role opposite the late Jerry Orbach in Promises, Promises, she also co-starred with Sammy Davis, Jr., in Stop theWorld I Want to Get Off.

Mercer was a regular on The Dom DeLuise Show, The Wacky World of Jonathan Winters, The Sandy Duncan Show, The Andy Williams Show, and the sitcom It’s a Living where she played the humorless restaurant hostess, Nancy Beebe. She also had recurring roles on Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, its sequel, Forever Fernwood, St. Elsewhere, and Empty Nest. She made guest appearances on such shows as Love, American Style, Archie Bunker’s Place, Mama’s Family, Benson, The Golden Girls, Murder, She Wrote, Touched by an Angel, and Suddenly Susan, among many others.

She died of Alzheimer’s Disease on April 27, 2011, in Newbury Park, California.
