Morning Edition - 4/27/05

Kem Calls
“There’s nowhere to hide when love is calling your name,” R&B artist Kem (Kemistry) says on Love Calls – a popular song off his first CD. With a vocal style that has been compared to Al Jarreau, the soothing – even jazzy – artist will release his Kem, Album II, on Tuesday, May 3. If his first release is any indication of what to expect on Album II, then this is a MUST buy.

WIC Out of Whack
A study by the Institute of Medicine found that the current WIC program, which supports more than half of all infants born in the United States, is outdated. The program was founded in the 1970s and is known for giving vouchers for milk, cheese, juice and cereals. The current program did not meet the current recommendations for nutrition made by experts. WIC recipients can now expect less milk, less cheese, less juice and a voucher for fresh produce. The key change – LESS of everything.

Way Over The Rainbow
Judy Garland’s pinafore styled blue and white gingham dress worn while filming the Wizard of Oz was sold at auction today for $252,000. Initially, it was believed the gown would fetch about $63,000. The buyer, who purchased the dress via telephone, did not wish to be identified. The dress is one of six used during the filming of the movie, but only one of two that had secret pockets sewn in to the gown. Judy Garland was 17 when the film was made in 1939 and died in 1969 at the age of 47.

Keep passin’ the open windows…
