Truth/Lie Meme Answers

Here were the choices I gave here:

1) I have sung on stage with Harry Chapin.
2) Barbra Streisand, Eddie Money, Janis Joplin, the Smothers Brothers, the Kingston Trio and I had the same vocal coach.
3) I have never appeared on a nationally syndicated game show.
4) I have performed at Carnegie Hall.
5) I have worked with Jim Lange (former host of "The Dating Game").


1) I have sung on stage with Harry Chapin.
True. I was 18, and he was appearing at a benefit at the college I was attending at the time (Hofstra University). In the benefit he had the audience do the chorus of "Cat's in the Cradle" -- first all of us, then just the men, then just the women. When it came to the women's turn, something kicked in with my voice where everything fell into the right place. It sounded like me with all the other women singing backup behind me (I can be loud without trying).

Next Chapin asked for four volunteers from the audience to come on stage with him. A bunch of us all raised our hands. He turned to me and yelled, "You, with the good voice -- come up here!" The four of us who were called up sang backup with him on "Taxi," "Mr. Tanner," and a few other numbers and even got to take a swig of his orange juice!

As an aside, that was the first time anybody told me I had "a good voice."

2) Barbra Streisand, Eddie Money, Janis Joplin, the Smothers Brothers, the Kingston Trio and I had the same vocal coach.

True. I studied with Judy Davis from early 1993 till 1999, when she disbanded our class. Judy was a taskmaster who would get on my case about my weight because she felt it made it harder for me to get commercial acceptance. She softened up when she realized some of that "weight" was "bust size" and instead suggested I invest in a good bra or two.

Judy passed away in January, 2001, and I miss her dearly.

3) I have never appeared on a nationally syndicated game show.

This is one where I should have watched the wording.

It's True, unless you count my showing up at the tail end of my then boyfriend's appearance on "Wheel of Fortune." When I worked at Metro Traffic I was precluded from such appearances due to Conflict of Interest (I was working for an "affiliated company" and thus could not appear). I have not actively sought out an appearance on a game show since I left Metro Traffic.

4) I have performed at Carnegie Hall.
False. I've never even attended a concert there.

I have, however, performed on the grounds of Rockefeller Center, but that's another story altogether.

5) I have worked with Jim Lange (former host of "The Dating Game").

True. I was his traffic reporter when he was on KKSJ in San Jose.
