Elvis impersonator Steve Roth left La Cañada all shook up June 29 during his Music in the Park performance. For two hours Roth serenaded the packed Memorial Park crowd with hit after hit from the king of rock and roll. Roth not only got those in attendance to dance?sometimes reluctantly in their lawn chairs, but always dancing?but he also handed out scarves during more sentimental tunes and teddy bears to the younger members of the crowd. As one of the most respected Elvis impersonators in Southern California, Roth did more than deliver great hits and gifts, he also educated his audience.

Jeffrey Polk, director of the new Pasadena Playhouse production of “Smokey Joe's Café: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller,” knows why the show has been successful since it bowed in 1994. “The strength,” he declares, “is in the music itself. Those songs are part of the fabric of America. I grew up in San Bernardino and when my mother had the radio on, I'd hear their songs. That's why I love this show: It's like watching what we used to hear on the radio.” Songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller crafted a body of work that resulted in some of the best and most notable tunes for Elvis Presley (“Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock”)

My brother Fred was the dumbest guy I ever knew; dumber than a door nail, if you know what I mean. He was at the bottom of the barrel in every class he took; all he ever read was the back of a cereal box. With help from Classic Comics, he graduated from Salesian High School on a wing and a prayer. I hope he doesn't read this; he'll kick my butt from here to the Brooklyn Bridge. Anyway, he ambled off to the University of Dayton, became the student body president, barely graduated, and, it was said by Father Rouch, the university president, he received more job offers than anyone in Dayton's history.

I was up in Palo Alto for a wonderfully fun family Easter gathering at daughter Heather’s house this past weekend. It took some well-timed maneuvers for the Easter Bunny to hide eggs between rain showers. However, the rain spatters didn’t seem to deter our exuberant little kids from ferreting out the hiding places of the brightly colored eggs. The littlest cousin of the family is 18-month-old Finn Fagan, who got plenty of adult help filling up his first Easter basket. It wasn’t until 10 p.m. Sunday that we heard that the Southland had gone through some rocking and rolling at 3:40 in the afternoon.
