Born and raised in NYC...Brooklyn. "Whuh? Yis got a PROBLEM wid dat?!" Built my first radio station in high school by staging hundreds of bake sales to raise money to buy equipment.
Went to NYU - got my first job WHILE I was at NYU Film School - "Cousin Ken" on "XL Country" in New Jersey at the ripe old age of 19.
Been on the air ever since. Acting and writing career continued: Small parts in various movies and TV shows - but got a few featured parts, like last year's season opener on "Law And Order, C.I."
I've also written and starred in a couple of those low-budget T&A movies, like "The Naked Detective." - don't worry gang - I keep my clothes ON! I'm the comic relief!
Was on the Golf Channel's "Total Golf Makeover" a couple of season's ago in Orlando...I'm now a 12 handicap, thanks to Moe Norman's Natural Golf method!
Married, with a family - that would be my dog, Brak, a Border Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog mix, and our cat, Baldrick, who rules the world (the world just doesn't realize it yet).
Favorite Concert? Seeing "The Wall," Roger Water's epic, live in Berlin, after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Simply one of the greatest events I have ever been part of in my life...
Recently Discovered Mercury Cemetery Marker Now Missing
A plaque that until this year few knew existed has gone missing.
The marker is believed to represent the final resting place of Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991. For over 20 years no one knew where Mercury’s ashes were scattered, and now the plaque believed to represent just that spot has seemingly blown away in the wind.
The London Mirror discovered a plaque at the Kensal Green Cemetery in London that was a tribute to Farrokh Bulsara, Mercury’s birth name. It was signed by “M,” who many believed to be Mary Austin, Mercury’s former girlfriend and the beneficiary of the singer’s multi-million dollar home after his death. Mercury was cremated at Kensal Green, but speculation as to where his ashes ended up has centered around countries like Switzerland and Zanzibar, or Mercury’s Kensington home.
Austin says she knows, but was sworn to secrecy. The dates on the plaque are the same as Mercury’s birth and death dates.
“Avec Tout Mon Amour,” the plaque reads, translating to “Always to be close to you with all my love.”
The Mirror says fans are speculating that Austin may have snatched the plaque, which was on a pillar with many other similar tributes. Cemetary workers did not know when the plaque appeared, or how it disappeared. It could have happened up to a week ago.
