These final notes today…

Yes, a 2-for-1 deal. Just because.

Number 1: Forget public radio t-shirtsWhat we need is a good public radio calendar. New York City taxi drivers are all over it

$14.99 is the sticker price.

The calendar features spoof pictures of genuine cabbies in some come-hither poses with proceeds benefiting a social services group in lower Manhattan.

Item number 2: Before which I must confess I actually watched a good part of the Sound of Music on TV the other night.

But that’s beside the point…

According to the New York TimesBob Greenblatt, head of NBC’s entertainment unit, said thanks to the boffo ratings for Carrie Underwood and cast, the network’s going to do another live show next year.

Family friendly, he said. With lots of familiar songs.
