Upper Darby native and “Saturday Night Live” star Tina Fey mentioned the old “Al Alberts Show” on “Assscat Improv” on Bravo last week.  The new comedy show features comics such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and others doing monologues and other assorted routines.  Fey talked about how when she was growing up in the Philly area, she would watch and “love to hate” Alberts every week. 

It was nice hearing former WYSP 94.1-FM personality “Anita” Gevinson subbing on WMGK 102.9-FM last week. The great thing about radio is a disc jockey doesn't age - he/she sounds the same whether 30-years-old or fifty.   Today, “Anita” is a radio personality in Los Angeles.
