Gimme Danger: The Story of Iggy Pop: Joe Ambrose
Lucy Brewer would never have guessed that her best friend, Duffy McCready (of McCready’s Bait Shop & Funeral Home) has been in love with her since they were kids. Fear of rejection and his own romantic complications prevented Duffy from confessing his true feelings in high school, so he stood by and watched her wed Wayne Bowman right after high school. Wayne had always been a cheapskate, so it comes as no surprise when he suffers a fatal accident while fixing his own truck. Even as her family and friends invade Lucy’s life and insist that the new widow is too fragile to do much beyond weeping, Lucy is ashamed to admit that life without Wayne is easier, less complicated. After all, no one knew what a relentless, soul-grinding trudge marriage to Wayne had been. Only Duffy can tell she’s hiding something. In need of a fresh start, Lucy asks Duffy to put his cabinet-building skills to use, transforming the town´s meat shop into a bake shop. As the bakery takes shape, Lucy and Duffy discover the spark that pulled them together so many years ago. Could this finally be the second chance he’s always hoped for?

In this breathtaking cultural history filled with exclusive, never-before-revealed details, celebrated rock journalist Joel Selvin tells the definitive story of the Rolling Stones´ infamous Altamont concert in San Francisco, the disastrous historic event that marked the end of the idealistic 1960s. In the annals of rock history, the Altamont Speedway Free Festival on December 6, 1969, has long been seen as the distorted twin of Woodstock - the day that shattered the ´60s´ promise of peace and love when a concertgoer was killed by a member of the Hells Angels, the notorious biker club acting as security. While most people know of the events from the film Gimme Shelter, the whole story has remained buried in varied accounts, rumor, and myth - until now. Altamont explores rock´s darkest day, a fiasco that began well before the climactic death of Meredith Hunter and continued beyond that infamous December night. Joel Selvin probes every aspect of the show - from the Stones´ hastily planned tour preceding the concert to the bad acid that swept through the audience to other deaths that also occurred that evening - to capture the full scope of the tragedy and its aftermath. He also provides an in-depth look at the Grateful Dead´s role in the events leading to Altamont, examining the band´s behind-the-scenes presence in both arranging the show and hiring the Hells Angels as security. The product of 20 years of exhaustive research and dozens of interviews with many key players, including medical staff, Hells Angels members, the stage crew, and the musicians who were there, Altamont is the ultimate account of the final event in rock´s formative and most turbulent decade. 1.

In 1969 Michael Lydon, a founding editor of Rolling Stone and a leading member of rock writing´s first generation, got a dream assignment: to cover the Rolling Stones´ hopscotch tour across America that ended at Altamont. His long, intimate piece on the tour, The Rolling Stones Discover America, captures the highs and lows of the grueling tour and has become a classic of rock ´n´ roll journalism - one that the Maysles brothers studied to guide the editing of their film, Gimme Shelter. Nobody used the term ´´embedded reporter´´ in those days, but that´s how Lydon lived on the tour, staying in the Stones´ HQ house above LA´s Sunset Strip and in suites at New York´s Plaza Hotel, flying in private jets to Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boston, gambling in Las Vegas, hanging out backstage at the LA Forum and Manhattan´s Madison Square Garden, smoking pot with ´´The Boys´´ in late night bull sessions, and night after night digging the overpowering, sensuous, and beautiful music. ´´This was the peak of my rock ´n´ roll reporting career,´´ Lydon has said. ´´I knew I was where every hippie in America wanted to be, and I jumped into the tour with my eyes and ears wide open, a big grin on my mug.´´ In The Rolling Stones Discover America, Lydon also describes his own nervousness living so close to stardom. ´´The Stones were good guys and hardworking musicians,´´ he says, ´´but they were the sun kings of the tour universe. The rest of us were minor planets spinning about them in fixed and distant orbits. It´s a miracle I managed to keep my feet on the ground, keep taking notes, and get the story down on paper - but I´m glad I did.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lydon.

After my marriage ended, I took some time off to regroup and have some ´´Jill Time´´. Then after three years, I woke up one morning and said to the universe, ´´I want to be in love again. Bring it on!´´ Well, all hell broke loose, and it started raining men. All I can say is that I should have been more specific. This is the story of my Johns. No, not those kind of Johns. Gimme some credit. It´s the story of my weird, perilous, and often hilarious world of dating. I´ve named them all John and assigned them a number. Do you really think that I can remember all 47 names? Not likely. Buckle up ladies and gents. I went through this, so you don´t have to. You´re welcome. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jill Sinclair.

Don´t judge a book by its cover, or a bag lady by her appearance. ´I didn´t always look like this,´ she says. ´Being barmy doesn´t mean I´m stupid.´ Lady Bag does have her problems - her close relationship with cheap red wine, for example. When she gets hammered she talks to her dog. When she´s extra-hammered her dog talks to her. Guess who makes better sense. She and her rescue greyhound, Electra, wander through the streets of London, seeing a Dickensian side of the capital city that´s visible only to the homeless. Together they accept the kindness and unkindness of strangers with the same wry patience. Until, on one dreadful day, they meet the Devil outside the National Portrait Gallery...
