Eddie Fisher

Monday, September 27, 2010

Eddie Fisher was one of the most popular singers of the 1950s -- but he’s also known for his romantic entanglements with Debbie Reynolds (fathering Carrie and Todd Fisher) and Elizabeth Taylor, among others.  You could say he’d Been There, Done That, which was the title of his memoir – which he came to discuss with Leonard Lopate back in September of 1999.  He died recently at the age of 82.

Eddie Fisher had the BEST voice of all the 50's singers. WHAT A VOICE. We will miss him. I hope someone will release all of his Coke Time TV Shows.

Can you please ask Mr. Lopate to go on line once in a while and look at the WNYC web pages?

He just said go to the Show Page on and see the 2008 interview with Tony Curtis. Always, always he says this thing and then nowhere can anyone find what he is refering to on the Web Site.

He is just wasting our time. Can he not be more specific? Or just have someone on his staff be more internet specific.

He seems to be out of it big time, re internet and what is on the wonderful yet complex, WNYC web site.


Listening to LLopate all over the world vis WiFi radio (what's that? I bet L.Lopate would say).
