Look for Christy and Jimmy McNichol and Fred Astaire, they were guest stars! Here's more with Karen singing with that sublime voice of hers:

Remember the movie A Mighty Wind? This is the era and performers they were spoofing (like the Chad Mitchell Trio who open disc one with 'A Might Day'). There are also unbelievably hilarious comedy routines from Vaughn Meader and Woody Allen on the first disc. I'll do a proper review in the review section of this set when I've happily absorbed the entire thing, but wanted to give you a heads up that Hootenanny is now available for pre-order (for a January release date).
(Read about the show on TVparty!) I can't say enough good things about it - and I'm only through the first disc. If there's a more exciting eclectic mix of music on DVD I haven't seen it. Trini Lopez, Mariam Makeba, The Carter Family, Johnny Cash, Hoyt Axton, Ian & Sylvia, Marion Williams, Doc Watson and dozens of others. This is the it.

THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE - 10 YEARS LATER
There's a devastating 1996 HBO documentary called Paradise Lost (Blockbuster & Netflix have it as well as Amazon) and a follow-up film (Paradise Lost 2) that lays out the facts in a clear and concise way. If we're truly to live in a just society, we have to be sure that the people convicted of horrific crimes are caught and punished. That didn't happen in this case, and one of the young men waits on DEATH ROW for a crime he did not commit. And in that community a child sadist and killer goes free.
I feel bad that there isn't much I can do about it - except for the remote possibility that YOU are someone that can make a difference. As someone who grew up in the South - and live there now - I know how things all-too-often happen (these boys were convicted without a single SHRED of physical evidence - and the state has been dragging their feet for ten years on doing the DNA tests that could exonerate them). Although several high profile celebrities have taken up the cause, I can only imagine the horror these young person's lives must be, incarcerated as they are as child molesting killers.
