As Britain's best-known fallen star, Dee occupied an unenviable niche in the history of celebrity: "Simon Dee Syndrome" was said to describe those who were better known for losing their grip on fame than for what they did to earn it in the first place.
Yet during his three short years in the public glare, Dee lived the sex, drugs and rock-and-roll dream, hosting the most popular programme on television, having affairs with Hollywood actresses, befriending the Beatles, stepping out with Princess Margaret and making (and spending) prodigious amounts of money. As postwar television came of age, and the era of colour dawned, Dee was undoubtedly the medium's hottest ticket.
Bugs Bunny is a transvestite. He is not a homosexual. He feels the desire to dress as the opposite sex not to attract men, but because ... anyway, he is not a homosexual.
Bat Guano is the host and disk jockey of the radio program SwaG!. He is loved by tens of fans. His music "mix" is a blend of carefully selected audio spices, cuts of the finest beef and pork, topped off with an aperitif desert of crunchy-topped whipped nuts and cakes. It will make you dance, think and squirm like a worm.
Two new archived broadcasts -- a total of six hours of sound entertainment! -- are available at http://swagradio.org.

Les Paul died yesterday, as you probably know. Not only did he design the first commercially successful soldibody electric (made in my hometown of Kalamazoo, Mich. until Gibson abandoned us in 1984), he invented multi-track recording. Instead of just recording music, he used recording processes in making sound that musicians couldn't do alone.
You could blame him for over-produced Auto-Tuned crap, but that would be like blaming the inventor of gunpowder for Hiroshima.
