RadioLulu is on the air

Began work on RadioLulu, a Louise Brooks-themed internet radio station. The station is hosted by live365.com  I opened an account at the host website, am converting songs to the mp3 format, and am creating a playlist. I need to come up with about three hours of programming, so I will need to scour my cd collection for appropriate material. I hope others will tune-in, as this station is going to cost me about ten dolars a month....

.... The Louise Brooks Society is proud to announce the launch of RadioLulu. This streaming internet radio station features music of the 1920's through the present day. (The majority of the music dates from the 1920's and 1930's.) A number of the songs featured on the station bear some connection to Louise Brooks, such as the Beggars of Life theme song, Brooks' favorite Gershwin tune, Somebody Loves Me, and later day tributes like OMD's Pandora's Box (It's a long, long way) and Soul Coughing's St. Louise Is Listening. Other music on the station includes recordings by Brooks' contemporaries and co-stars, such as actors Adolphe Menjou and Noah Berry, and torch singer Libby Holman. The station is hosted by Live 365.com. Additional music will be added in the future.

The entire contents from two issues of the Illustrierter Film-Kurier have been added to the LBS website. This German film periodical devoted each issue to a single film. Issue number 1020 was devoted to A Girl in Every Port, while issue number 1314 was devoted to The Canary Murder Case. Also, two pages (about Beggars of Life) from a vintage Paramount campaign book from France have also been added. And as well, a handful of citations from California newspapers have been added to the various film bibliographies. These citations - garnered from visits to regional libraries - include articles and reviews from the Pasadena Star-News, Fresno Bee, and two papers from San Diego - the San Diego Sun and San Diego Union
