I remember "The Spirit of '76" series. As I recall, it was based on various facets of American history, such as the story of John Honeyman (an American spy during the Revolutionary War), Nathan Hale, the attempt to capture Benedict Arnold, and many others. Unhappily, virtually all of these radio history gems were destroyed in a fire that also destroyed Mr. Doremus's personal studio (I remember reading about it in the papers). It wasn't too long after that he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, which ultimately took his life. If any of the episodes in question did survive, I for one would like to hear about it!
The Chicago Tribune called him "the nation's foremost beautiful music host." I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult. In 1967, he was named "Best Chicago Radio Personality." That's far from insulting. Born in Sapulpa, OK in 1931 Doremus was born into an era when the Okies were outbound.

I remember a recording of this song in which Sir Noel gives a short explanation of the circumstances that inspired him to write this comic masterpiece. I seem to recall it being on You Tube, but if so, it's long gone/ Does anyone else remember this recording?
This film was based on the first of a pair of novels by Edwin Balmer and Phillip Wylie. George Pal, the film's producer, had planned to create a sequel based on the second and final novel, "After Worlds Collide." Unfortunately, his next film, "Conquest of Space," was so poorly received, both critically and at the box office, that his career in Hollywood was seriously damaged for the next five years, and so his plans for the second film never came to pass. There have been efforts to work up a remake of this film, but as of April 2015, its current status remains unknown, and it now appears unlikely that the remake will ever come to pass.
In 2014, Joshua Wade admitted to three additional murders. At that time, he was pursuing a request for post-conviction relief. In exchange for dismissing that case, he requested and received a transfer to a Federal maximum security prison in Indiana. The three murders to which he admitted are currently under investigation. His existing prison sentences, however, will keep him in prison for the rest of his life with no possibility of parole or probation.
Based on my own experience, I'd say you'll either wind up a low tenor or possibly a high baritone (i.e., midway between tenor and bass, with some of the qualities of each). Either way, it's obvious you're taking good care of those vocal cords, amigo! Keep up the good work!
Within the past ten years, both Gamble and Presley had their death sentences commuted to life without parole, based on the 2005 Supreme Court ruling that the death penalty is unconstitutional for defendants who were underage at the time they committed their crimes.
