DeVivi's

Chap Harrison
 

DeVivi's (as I think it was spelled) Chicken in the Rough restaurant was at the south end of town on Rt. 15. It was the only game in town for a family-style sit-down restaurant, unless you counted Bartley's or Bartlett's, near the fire station.

DeVivi's parking lot was the southern turn-around spot for the Orange idiot-loop (the north spot being...?). I remember seeing my first '65 Mustang drive through there, as well as the Corvette Stingray.

The food, as I recall, was unremarkable.

Regarding the place-mats, I remember them too - it was our tradition to write the word "antidisestablishmentarianism" at the top every time we went there.

This was all before my time. What's the deal, was the station in the
Divivi's restaurant at some time, or what?

33

Dominion Market Research staff <staff@...>
 

I just did a quick Google search and found the below on a website. I'll take it's word for the accuracy of the information.

Ross
---------------------------------------------

Jesus died at 33. Anne Bolyne was killed by Henry VIII when she was 33. Jacky Kennedy was 33 when JFK died. The time on The End Is The Beginning Is The End remix cd is 33:33.

Another little fact about 33 is that it's the atomic number for arsenic. Arsenic is a poison. This could be thought of in several different ways. But 33 always seems to have something to do with death.

Chris Farley died at age 33 and so did his idol, John Belushi. They both died of the same causes too. Both were drug and alcohol related. It's really bizarre how all these famous people die when they're 33.

There are 33 houses in a monopoly game, coincidence? I think not.

We need more stories from game engineers.

Ross
I was working the 5 to sign-off on a Saturday. Orioles have a twi-
light double header with first game starting about 5:30. I am sick.
Headche, fever, etc. Hope the games are short.

First game going along fine but then it starts to rain. And rain. And
Rain! There were 4 or maybe 5 delays. First game is not over until
9:30 or so.

I am so out of it, I just lean over and lay my head against the Revox
rack between breaks.

Second game starts. It goes along fine except...extra innings. And
more extra innings. I think it went 14 in all.

So....at about 2:00am the games are finally over. Of course I still
have the "Ten O'Clock" news block to do. That takes another 25
minutes or so. It is almost 2:30 before I shut it down.

Next day Ross told me I really should shorten the news block when
things go that late.

Then there was the time maybe 6 months after I started. It was the
evening shift so no one else was there. Dave Williamson came by for

Good question Jay. From my impression of the way things were ran at
the time it got missing, I suspect a lot of it just got tossed out.

"Studio A" was a wonderland of sound. Albums from the 40's and 50's.
Obscure stuff. News and specialty stuff. Makes me sick to think about
its destruction.

Jay,

I don't know. I think the late Jim Cortada got some of it. Bob Wade (aka JD Slade) was around when some of it was disposed of. He may be able to tell us.

What a crime. If the disposers had any clue about the value of that collection, they would have tried to sell it. I bet every Frank Sinatra album was there. The covers alone were worth something.

Do you remember the series of albums from Columbia? One came each month with a fetching young lady on the cover. When the December album came, if featured Santa and it was apparent that all the albums should be placed together like a puzzle to make a large picture with Santa in the center surrounded by his elves. Neat idea.

I miss the records for Morning Movie and the obscure and off the wall songs that were just right for certain situations.

Sad, sad, sad.

Re: I still want to hear the Chet Burgess/Jean Love newscast story!

Dominion Market Research staff <staff@...>
 

The other day, some of us were sharing embarrassing moments at WJMA (our
own and other peoples'!).

I had a vague memory of hearing of a practical joke played, I believe, by
Jean Love on Chet Burgess. Both of those folks preceeded my time at WJMA,
but as I recall, there was an incident involving these two folks that had
risen to the level of folklore by the time I'd arrived on the scene in late
1976. And I remember enjoying the story, but I don't remember the story.

Can Phil fill me in? Does Ross recall? Or maybe you, Chet? Or Jean???

T'was a great tale, and I'd love to hear it again. Practical jokes were a
staple of our diet at WKRP....er...that is...WJMA.

I'll hang up now and listen.

Jay,

I recall the story, but Russ can tell it best. I think he's off the list for a few days.

I hope I have this right. He's a pilot for Northwest Airlines flying an Airbus from the US to Amsterdam to Bombay. He lays over a few days and comes back.

Russ: Do I have your job right? Maybe you can also tell about the pilot and the white cane.

Re: Miss Message reports

Jay Kiernan
 

A lovely message, Ms. Mommy Muffy Message!!!

jay kiernan

Hi Everyone!

It is so touching to read these stories about the place I spent many
many kid hours. Why, just recently I was recalling the afternoons I
spent mesmerized by the aluminum Christmas tree that stood on a table
in the lobby. I would gaze at the tree's changing colors (and
occasionally try to score a piece of ribbon candy if I thought that
Pat wasn't looking). Then it was back to the studio to record the
latest installment of "Letters to Santa Claus" with my dad.

I still read letters to Santa Claus, but these days they're written by
our five-and-a-half-year-old son, Walker. And instead of requesting a
Dr. Drill-n-Fill or Rock-em Sock-em Robots, he desires . . . well,
pretty much anything that sports a Tennessee Titans logo.

We live in Nashville, where my husband, Craig Smith, teaches law at
Vanderbilt. The myriad stories of my father's emphasis on proper
pronunciation reminded me of this one: Craig is from Ann Arbor,
Michigan, and he sounds like it. Not long after I began dating him
(back in college), my father took me aside and cautioned, "Ann, now I
don't mean to *worry* you, but your A's are starting to sound a
little . . . flat." Nowadays I hear myself chiding, "Walker, darling,
those aren't your paJAMas; they're your paJAAHHHHmas. Can you hear
the difference?" Oh, dear.

Despite my early days as Child Star and my later, high-school stint as
Muffy the News Girl, the closest I've come to work in radio has been
answering phones at fundraising time for the local public radio
station. But last year I discovered the beauty of Voiceover Work.
When I left the recording studio the first time, I cackled and hooted
all the way home. Immediately I phoned my dad and gleefully said, "I
just can't beLIEVE that they're going to PAY me to TALK into a
MICrophone!!!" To which the Voice of Experience
responded, "Well . . . *have* they paid you yet?"

I didn't recognize my favorite WJMA moment when it happened, but I'm
lucky enough to have it on tape. It's from an episode of "Letters to
Santa Claus." Mr. Postmaster has given Miss Message a recording of
Sam and the Boys in the Back Room singing "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down
and Write Myself a Letter." (As you will recall, Sam the Courier Elf
was the one who would swing by the Post Office each evening to
retrieve the children's letters from the mailbag and take them on to
Santa Claus.) Sam and the Boys in the Back Room were, naturally, an
elf barbershop quartet. And there's my dad, singing all four parts in
perfect harmony, speeded up and elf-like. It is a sweet thing.

All the best to all of you,

Ann Ross Harrison
