LISTENING
POST

IT WAS THAT TIME
again . . . the Jerry Lewis
Muscular Dystrophy Tele-
thon . . . number 18 in the
22-hour spectacular to aid
the fight against MD and re-
lated neuromuscular disor-
ders.
The telethon originated
from Caesar's Palace in Las
Vegas . . . and was carried
by a "love" network of some
200 stations throughout the
country . . . In the Detroit
area, local segments were
televised on WJBK-TV,
Channel 2.
Ken Been, son of Mary
and Louis Been, was this
year's complete script
writer (introductions, ev-
erything said by hosts, etc.)
. . . Hired for five weeks,
this was Ken's first telethon
. . . He is an English teacher
at Marygrove College .. .
and does free-lance writing
. . . plus being an educa-
tional consultant for Chip-
pewa Valley schools (Mt.
Clemens, Clinton and
Macomb townships.)
As usual, there was
Doug Jacobs and the Red
Garter Band making the
hours fly . . . Visiting
Doug from San Francisco
and spending much time
at the telethon were his
mother and dad,
Elizabeth and dental doc
George Jacobs ...
George retired this year
after 52 years practice .. .
and did all the driving
here from San Francisco
... He and Beth will take
much more time going
back ... George is a 33rd
degree Mason ... and
former board member at
Temple Emanu-El in San
Francisco.
Doug came to Detroit in
1968, after putting bands
together and opening Red
Garter operations in San
Francisco, New York,
Chicago, New Orleans and
Philadelphia 2. . He opened
his own Red Garter Bar on
Library back of J.L. Hud-
son's . . . which was closed in
1975 . . . Today, Doug's is
one of the foremost Dixie-
land jazz groups in town .. .
ever prevalent with those
red and white striped jac-
kets . . . and foot-stomping
music . . . doing private par-
ties, conventions, dances,
etc.
Jay Roberts, as usual,
was a wonderful telethon
host . . . and spent much of
his time off the cameras
thanking musicians there
for the recent over-400-
people party celebrating his
25 years of "Night Flight"
on WJR Radio . (-Jay is
probably the only Detroit
radio personality who con-
tinually plays recording of
local jazz artists . . . and
they showed their apprecia-
tion by the huge party at
Presidential Inn, with over
200 not being able to get in
... Gracious Jay's shindig
was started by Doug San-
ders, whose Surfside .Six

group is the Presidential
Inn house band.
Sheraton-Oaks was the
only hotel giving most of the
food for the telethon .. .
breakfast, cold plates, hors
d'oeuvres, desserts . . . plus
chefs on the phones .. .
Executive Chef Remy Be-
rdy, Chef du Provision Joel
Gordon, Michael Bough,
Fred Boone, Kevin As-
pinall, Geri Reim, Rick
Ormsby, Bruce Stuart plus
others of the kitchen staff
. . . and Don Durfee, new
food and beverage director
at Sheraton-Oaks in Novi.
Still at WJBK-TV are
wonderful working guys
like telethon producer-
director Dick Dietrich,
producer-director Jay
Frommert, who flew in from
"doing" the - Lions-Tampa
Bay football TV opener .. .
both over 30 years at the
station . . . floor man Bob
Simons, almost 35 years;
Errol Forten, over 32 years.
So many others giving
their time and efforts . . . in-
cluding coordinator Rac-
keline Hoff, who finally had
more than enough phone
volunteers.
GET WELL WISHES
. to Charlotte Rovner .. .
in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
ALTHOUGH THE
Boardwalk has been open
for some time on Orchard
Lake Rd., just south of
Maple, it has never had a
formal grand opening .. .
And so this will happen
Sept. 24, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
. . . with all 25 shops having
sales and specials . . . while
magicians, models, mimes
and live music entertain
along "the walk."
GEORGE JACKSON
was recently elected senior
vice president of Paralized
Veterans of America . . . in
Portland, Ore.
CONGRATS . to Nate
Peiss of Specialty Gifts &
Printing . . . on his 50th
birthday.
CHANCES ARE THE
biggie reunion of Central
and Northern High classes,
1934 more or less . . . will be
a weekend affair . . . Iz
Malin is the gent to phone
. . . for volunteers and
attending . . . Also, if you
have any Central or North-
ern High year books from
1932 on, Iz will appreciate
borrowing them . . . Call
him at 864-2506.
THIS WAS THE first
year in 35 that Max Sosin
did not sing in the choir for
high holidays at Cong. Bnai
David . . . He started when
Cantor Hyman Adler was in
his third year after coming
here from Cleveland .. .
Now that Cantor Adler has
retired, the choir is in limbo
and Max is "out of a job."
Reason for no choir was
that fill-in Cantor Veroba
didn't have time to rehearse
with one.
CONGRATS . . . to fash-
ion coordinator Leah Marks
. . . on her birthday.
