    In 1967, William Dozier, creator of the Batman television series, concerned that the show’s ratings were falling, decided to introduce a female character on the side of law & order in an attempt to attract new viewers. He came up with Batgirl, who would help Batman & Robin in their crusade against the malign forces of “guest villains”. For this role, on a par with the caped crusader & the boy wonder, Dozier cast Yvonne Craig. Although Craig, who has died at 78, had then been acting in films and television for a decade, Batgirl gave Yvonne her greatest fame.

    The Dynamic Duo became the Tremendous Trio when Craig first appeared in Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin, aired on 14 September 1967, the start of the 3rd & last season. As Barbara, the librarian daughter of Commissioner Gordon, she's kidnapped by the Penguin, who bullies her into agreeing to marry him. However, unknown to everyone except Alfred, the faithful butler of the billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne, Barbara has a secret crime-fighting identity. Inevitably, she escapes from the Penguin, & rescues the astonished Batman & Robin, who have been hopelessly strung up in the Penguin’s lair. Dressed in a tight-fitting purple and yellow bat outfit with pointy ears, & riding a purple, lace-trimmed motor Batcycle, Craig, playing it straight, immediately entered into the campy, satiric tone of the series. She was also able to match her two co-stars in the self-defence department, accompanied by such onomatopoeic on-screen graphics as POW!, WHAM! and CRR-ASH!.

    “I think that they ultimately chose me because of my ballet background,” Craig recalled. “Though they didn’t want me to do my own stunts, I finally talked them into it.”

    Join Richard with his special guest host, Robert Amberry, president of the Yvonne Craig Appreciation Society, in this special tribute to Yvonne and her career.

  • Urban Therapy with Sun #146 A Long, Carzy Summer.

    in Lifestyle

    We see a lot of strange things in the summertime. You never know what you're gonna get on a daily basis while you're driving, riding public transportation, walking, sitting on your porch or steps, shopping, looking out of your window or whatever. The summertime does crazy things to people. It' makes some people act out. When you think about it, you've probably seen the wildest things ever during the warm weather months. So, what have you seen this year? How about last year?
    This is a call in show.
    You are encouraged to share anything crazy that you've seen this summer. Nothing is too wild, ratchet, ghetto, unbelievable, ridiculous or just plain wrong.
    I know that personally, I don't have to leave my street. I have pictures! They give me a show every single day! Wait until I share my stories. Share yours as well and let's have some fun on this show.
    There may be drugs involved. In fact I know there will be.

  • The Impact on Business of Deregulation: The Case of Energy

    in Business

    On August 19, my guest will be Susan Mazonson, an independent associate with Viridian Energy.   She is an expert at building wealth by spotting trends and industry developments. 

    Her career began as one of the first female college hires at AT&T, part of the “high potential” management program.   Subsequently, she was recruited to lead the charge of New Business Development for the second largest US telecom equipment manufacturer.  There, she created the business plan for the infrastructure to power the emerging U.S. cellular radio networks, referred to today as mobile or wireless. 

    When deregulation of the telecom industry occurred, Susan leveraged that by starting two boutique consulting firms, advising incumbent carriers on how to compete in this new paradigm shift of competition, innovation, and technological advancement.  Among her clients were AT&T, Verizon, Alcatel-Lucent, all the Bell Operating Companies, and many other market entrants creating new niches.

    After riding the telecom deregulation wave for nearly 30 years, Susan recognized that the deregulation of the energy sector was the next “once ever” opportunity to not only create substantial wealth, but at the same time, do good for the environment.   She now offers simple, innovative, renewable energy solutions for consumers and businesses.  And she trains, mentors and coaches business professionals and entrepreneurs to create a part-time, recession-proof, passive, residual income, by sharing the benefits of choosing renewable energy options.

    Susan has a B.S. degree in Applied Mathematics from Brown University and an MBA in Marketing and Finance from University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
