"Monday Nights With Joaner" at The Harmony Network
Joaner Here! :- )
The Harmony Network's Monday night show, 7 to 10 PM Eastern Time,
formerly entitled "Joaner and Bea in Harmony", has been changed to
"Monday Nights with Joaner". This is due to Bea Howley's busy
barbershop schedule...singing in one chorus, and directing another!
We offered to double her salary to get her to stay on...but nothin'
times two is STILL nothin' ! We here at THN wish her all the best in
So now you will hear Joaner and "me" in harmony, the "me" being the
"guest of the moment"! Last Monday's guest was Marge Priddy,
an "almost-charter" member of my chorus, Ramapo Valley SAI, who
is currently singing with Hickory Tree, this year's delegate to
the SAI International Contest in Indianapolis from Region 15 !
Marge had a major role as "Granny" in the Hunterdon Harmonizers'
last Christmas Show, "The Blizzard of Ourz". (I had two smaller
part as Mom and the Virgin Mary...BOTH roles a real stretch for
me! :- ) She encouraged me to join Ramapo Valley by offering
to make my "Hot Time" costume....a major undertaking....and a
promise of which she claims to have no recollection!
Marge is also the mother of my NEW Baritone, Jeanne Viscito, who
persuaded her mom out of "retirement" when SHE rejoined Hickory
Tree (after a long absence, during which she served as the Mayor
of Berkeley Heights, NJ.) We are Three Jeans Looking for a Lead...
we have two prospective ones, but neither is willing to change her
name, so that we can call ourselves "Two Pairs of Jeans" :(
Ah, but I digress! If you tuned in to "Village Radio Dot Com"
last Monday, you were treated to these selections:
