NEWS BLOOPERS
Hilarious Moments In Broadcast News...

Retail Price: $9.99 
Deal Price: $2.99 

The straight faced seriousness of news reporters is a facade 
that occasionally slips live on air, often with hilarious 
results. This collection gathers together some of those 
moments, offering a series of clips where things haven't quite 
gone according to plan. Mishaps range from on-air bloopers, 
cameras going astray, non-stop giggling at inappropriate times, 
bizarre tongue-tied newscasters, and a whole lot more.

                     LINDA RONSTADT


BIRTH DATE: July 15, 1946, Tucson, Arizona


BIRTH NAME: Linda Marie Ronstadt 


CLAIM TO FAME: Who doesn't know Linda as one of the voices
of the 70's and 80's. She had a bunch of hits and remains
one of the all-time biggest selling female singers.


FAMILY LIFE: Linda never married but was romantically linked
to governor Jerry Brown back in the 70's. And George Lucas
in the 80's.

She has two adopted children, Mary and Carlos


INFO: The Ronstadt Family have made important contributions 
to arts and culture in the American Southwest. In fact, so 
great are their contributions to the state of Arizona that 
their history and influence, including wagon making, 
commerce, pharmacies and, of course, music, is chronicled 
within the library of the University of Arizona.

TURTLE KEY HIDER/HOLDER
This Turtle Has A Secret...

Normal Price: $9.99
DEAL PRICE: $3.99 

What a great idea! That's what everyone says about this item. 

Not just an appealing garden statue, this turtle cleverly 
conceals a secret spot to hide your spare key. Tuck near a 
door for a handy hide away. Good for a house or garage key.

Grab one or two while they last. This is an item we made a 
special purchase on and it is Below Cost! Once it sells out 
it is gone forever. Makes a great Housewarming Gift too.

Because of the low price, we must limit you to no more than 
six (6) per order. Check it out by visiting: Turtle Key Hider/Holder

NICKNAMES:
Queen of Country Rock 
Queen of Rock 
First Lady of Rock 


TRIVIA: Had a string of highly successful country and pop 
singles during the 1970s, including "When Will I Be Loved" 
(a 1975 No. 1 country hit); "Heat Wave" (also 1975); 
"Tracks of My Tears" (1976); and "Blue Bayou" (1977).

With country performers Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris, 
formed the Trio, releasing two successful albums--in 1987 
and 1999. Only their first song, "To Know Him is to Love 
Him" (1987) would go to No. 1 on Billboard magazine's 
country singles chart.

Has 11 Grammy Awards

Ranked #21 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women of Rock N Roll

Brother Peter is former police chief of Tucson, Arizona.

Was in The Stone Poneys and they were a supporting act 
for The Doors on tour; Jim Morrison didn't exactly endear 
himself to the trio when he said, "We thought they were a 
good band, but we didn't like the singer".

In an interview published on July 2004, she told the San 
Diego Union-Tribune that the presence of a "Republican or 
fundamental Christian" in her concert audience "can cloud 
my enjoyment."

Was nominated for Broadway's 1981 Tony Award as Best Actress 
(Musical) for "The Pirates of Penzance," a role she recreated 
in the film version of the same title, The Pirates of Penzance.

Revealed in a late 1970s Rolling Stone magazine interview that 
she was battling severe depression.

Mother is English, Dutch, and German. Father is Mexican, English, 
and German.

Has recorded and performed in the widest diversity of genres in 
popular music such as country, rock, standards, rock 'n' roll, 
reggae, New Wave, rhythm and blues, folk, big band, jazz, Cajun, 
opera, Broadway, Latin American, Mexican and Afro-Cuban, 
children's music, acoustic rock, adult contemporary, art rock, 
and gospel.

schedule. In fact, here is her summer tour schedule:
