There were a number of big advantages to the CD's. Of course, part of it was the magician. But for one thing, you could actually SEE the CD's, and there was the implication that all of them were playable.

The CD act was shorter and a bit faster paced. He also did a bit or two with the boom box that he actually played a couple of CD's on.

I would add Dorothy Dietrich, who has broken many barriers for women.

She started as a teenager doing routines women mostly would not breech. When she started as a teenager women were not even allowed full membership in most magic organizations. SAM, Magic Circle, etc. She knows because she tried to join at the time.

She has accomplished things many of the "boys" would not touch, clearing the way for recognition, admittance and for many other women to follow.

Along with establishing NY's Magic Towne House that showcased many of today's greats, and currently the Houdini Museum in Scranton.

It would be very difficult to ignore the contributions of Suzy Wandas, Dell O'Dell and naturally, Adelaide Herrmann in this vein.

To change the subject momentarily, Dick, will you be at the gathering in Westborough this weekend?

Without a doubt there are other ladies including Adelaide who was already mentioned as well as possibly Anna Eva Fay.

To answer your other question, Dorothy is booked in NYC WED & Thurs at the Jewish Museum in conjunction with the Houdini exhibit there. We will then be in Kutztown PA visiting with Kevin James, Johnny Thompson, et all Fri & Sat. They should also be on this list. Johnny, in case you do not know, helped out with Teller and Todd Robbins great fabulous wonderful show "Play Dead", in previews, that opens here on November 11, the same day we will be at the Jewish Museum.

We are also currently busy working with John & Tammy Calvert helping out with their tour here in the Northeast. Great people and magic royalty who certainly belong on this list.

Dick Brookz

Best wishes and regards.

Johnny Thompson is one of my best friends. He is possibly the best all-around magicians alive, period. When he appeared here in Houston at Magic Island, I was his emcee. So I learned all of the backstage bits, etc. that he uses.

There is a LOT going on up East this weekend!!! I'm heading up to NEMCA.

Bill;

Johnny has a huge knowledge, talent and background. Did you know he was in vaudeville with a famous hit recording harmonica group early on?
