Missing FEUD? Read About Joan Crawford in Greensboro!

“The best time I ever had with Joan Crawford was when I pushed her down the stairs in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.” — Bette Davis

It began innocently enough. Eleven-year old Chester Arnold Jr. had acquired 5 shares of Pepsi common stock in 1957 but, after seeing the financial world spoof The Solid Gold Cadillac, he suddenly grew concerned about his investment. He fired off a letter to Pepsi’s chairman Alfred Steele to ask if his board of directors was, “crooked like those people in the movie.” No, really, he did.

Perhaps at the insistence of his wife, who understood more than anyone the power of publicity, the boy and his parents were flown to New York and put up at the Waldorf Astoria where Alfred Steele and his new bride, one of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars, Joan Crawford were staying while their two-story Fifth Avenue penthouse was undergoing a major renovation. The Steele’s planned trip to Greensboro later in the week would provide the perfect Hollywood ending to a real life fairy tale come true — plucky small town boy meets glamorous movie queen with the lights of Manhattan as their backdrop.

Nathan Stringer Summer Music Show on DVD!

It was almost a year ago when I told Nathan I was going to produce a local music TV series and he was going to be the host.  I could see the disappointment on his face, like, “What’s the angle here?  Because that’s not going to happen and now he’s taking my picture and shit’s getting weird!”  But I don’t just talk about doing something, I do it!  And I’m really pleased with The Nathan Stringer Summer Music Show…

Authentic Southern singer songwriters from the Greensboro musical underground - that’s what this show is all about!  Four half hours of amazing music starring Grand Ole Uproar, Bob Fleming, Taylor Bays, DC Carter, Rachel Amick, Josh Crocker, Grady Riddle, and Gavan Holden. Along with videos from Bare the Traveler, Ameriglow, Jack Carter & the Armory, and Savage Music Clique.
