My new computer has a DVD burner, and today I finally was able to demonstrate to my satisfaction that I can burn a DVD suitable for playing in the family player. There were all kinds of weird complications, and not every kind of digital video seems to work for burning. But the clip I finally got going was this amazing performance by Geri Reischl on "Pop! Goes the Country," the syndicated country music program. Reischl, you'll recall, was "Fake Jan" on "The Brady Bunch Hour"; and her selection, the Olivia Newton-John classic "Please Mister Please," is one of my favorites.

Let me know if you want to borrow my Geri Reischl DVD. You may keep it "Till some button-pushin' cowboy plays that love song."
