Mary Perkins, On Stage
Mary Perkins, On Stage is an American newspaper comic strip by Leonard Starr for the Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate. It ran from February 1957 to September 9, 1979, with the switch to the longer title in 1961; some papers carried the strip under the shortened title Mary Perkins. Starr's scripts mixed soap opera and broad humor, while the art was characterized by a studied line and innovative storytelling; the strip offered a Broadway backstage drama as it followed the career of actress Mary Perkins in New York, Hollywood and on various international film sets and locations. A host of supporting characters joined Mary, including Pete Fletcher; the two married on December 13, 1959. The first On Stage Sunday strip was launched February 10, 1957; that is considered the start date for the strip, but in 1970, comics historian Raymond Miller wrote that internal evidence in the first Sunday page suggested the strip had at least a week's worth of prior daily strips. Starr won the National Cartoonists Society Story Comic Strip Award for the series in 1960 and 1963, its Reuben Award in 1965.
The strip came to a conclusion. Classic Comics Press announced in February 2006 that it had an agreement with Tribune Media Services to release chronological collected volumes of On Stage; the first appeared in June 2006, reprinting the strips of February 10, 1957 to January 11, 1958. The second volume was released in 2006, the third in 2007 and the fourth in 2008. By 2016, the entire run of the strip had been reprinted in fifteen volumes. Leonard Starr official site P. O. V.

On Stage (EP)
On Stage is a live recording of four songs performed on Kate Bush's Tour of Life in 1979. It was released on 31 August 1979 with "Them Heavy People" as the lead track, peaked at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart. On Stage was recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon on 13 May 1979, it became Bush's first official live performance on vinyl. The EP was the only audio recording of Kate Bush live for years, until 1994 when 60 minutes of the concert was released on Audio CD. Although the recordings are purportedly all from the same date, the four tracks on this EP are quite different from those of the release; the record was released on 12" vinyl and cassette in many countries, while in the UK EMI chose to release it as two 7" vinyl records packaged in a cardboard gatefold sleeve, this edition superseded by a single disc version, which crammed all 4 tracks onto one 7" vinyl record, with a 33RPM speed rather than 45RPM. The single was packaged in a gatefold sleeve. A promotional video was made for "Them Heavy People", depicting Bush against a black background with the two dancers from her live shows.
The single's peak at #10 gave Bush her third UK top 10 hit. Studio versions of all four songs were released on her first two albums. All tracks written by Kate Bush.7": EMI / EMI MIEP 2991
NY1 is an American cable news television channel founded by Time Warner Cable, which itself is owned by Charter Communications through its acquisition in May 2016. The channel provides 24-hour news coverage, with a focus on the five boroughs of New York City. NY1 is available on Spectrum's New York City system on channel 1 in standard definition and channel 701 in high definition. On Optimum in the New York City area, it is carried on channel 8, is transmitted by the provider in letterboxed standard definition until September 29, 2017 when it was upconverted to the HD feed; the channel is available to more than two million cable customers within the five boroughs of New York City, as well as nearby Bergen County in New Jersey and Mount Vernon in Westchester County, New York. As of 2014, NY1 is not available on Verizon FiOS. Outside the New York metropolitan area, NY1 is carried on Spectrum systems throughout New York State, its HD simulcast channel is available on its Orlando and Tampa systems.
It is available on its Raleigh and Greensboro systems in North Carolina on digital channel 215, both in standard and high definition. Outside the New York area, a loop of public service announcements and Spectrum promo ads is played over New York-specific advertising. NY1 was conceived by Richard Aurelio, the president of Time Warner Cable's New York City cable group who felt at the time that "New York City needed its own 24/7 news station that just covered the city." The channel launched on September 8, 1992. Construction of the 42nd Street facility was completed just over 1½ months earlier on July 15, however the channel's newly hired reporters began work one month beforehand by attending a videojournalism "boot camp". While some of NY1's reporters had used their own cameras in other markets, most of them had no exposure to the technical side of journalism. Following their training, the reporters and the rest of the staff took part in an additional two-month training period that included four weeks of real-time rehearsal.
A watershed event came in the final weeks of training, with the collapse of a former post office building on Manhattan's West Side. Although the channel was not yet on the air, NY1 reporters covered the story as if the channel was operational, interviewing survivors and witnesses. Following the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, NY1's feed was temporarily transmitted internationally through Oxygen after the cable channel was unable to broadcast regular programming from its headquarters in the Manhattan neighborhood of Battery Park City, located near the World Trade Center. In 2001, Time Warner Cable began offering NY1 to digital cable subscribers in the Albany market. In January 2002, the channel moved its operations to a new, all-digital facility on the sixth floor at Chelsea Market at 75 Ninth Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. On June 30, 2003, Time Warner Cable launched NY1 Noticias, a Spanish-language version of the channel for digital cable subscribers.
In 2005, NY1 launched NY1 on Demand, a video-on-demand service for Time Warner Cable customers, available on channel 1111 in the provider's New York City system. In 2008, NY1 launched a high-definition simulcast feed on Time Warner Cable digital channel 701, although it was broadcast only in a pillarboxed format, until the channel migrated to a full 16:9 widescreen format in October 2009. On March 14, 2013, Time Warner Cable announced plans to rebrand NY1 and its other regional news channels under the TWC News brand by the end of the year, along with the adoption of new on-air logos and a standardized graphics package for each of the channels; the reasoning for the name change was due to the perception by the company that Time Warner Cable subscribers did not know that the provider owns its regional news channels and are exclusive to its systems. The proposed name change for NY1 met with immediate controversy among Time Warner Cable's subscribers due to the familiarity with the brand and dissatisfaction with the provider's service by its New York City area customers.
Time Warner Cable explored the possibility of keeping the NY1 brand while including on-air references to its TWC ownership in some fashion, though executives confirmed that the rebranding would have no effect on the channel's news format or reporting style. On November 20, Time Warner Cable announced that it would append the "Time Warner Cable News" brand to the beginning of the NY1 name, while "NY1" would continue to be used on-air as a primary brand; the revised branding as well as the new graphics and music package went into ef
On Stage (Rainbow album)
On Stage is a double live album released by the British hard rock band Rainbow in 1977. It was recorded live over several German and Japanese dates in late 1976 during the Rising world tour; the recording features the customary introduction to a Rainbow show – the classic quote from The Wizard of Oz, "Toto: I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow!" with the last word repeated as an echo the actual band plays a musical phrase from the song "Over the Rainbow" before breaking into "Kill the King". Many of the tracks were spliced together from different dates by producer Martin Birch, the running order was changed to more fit four sides of vinyl. Recording Sources: Introduction/Kill The King Nuremberg 9/28/76 Munich 9/29/76 Man On The Silver Mountain Tokyo 12/16/76 Blues Tokyo 12/16/76 Starstruck Tokyo 12/16/76 Man On The Silver Mountain Tokyo 12/16/76 Catch The Rainbow Osaka 12/9/76 Mistreated Cologne 9/25/76 Sixteenth Century Greensleeves Tokyo 12/16/76 Still I'm Sad Music: Nuremberg 9/28/76 Vocals: Unknown Geoff Ginsberg of AllMusic writes: "On Stage is full of great songs and playing, but somehow it lacks some of the excitement that existed at those early Ritchie Blackmore concerts.
The production is just kind of flat. That doesn't change the fact that there is some great stuff to be found here and nowhere else, such as the side-long version of "Mistreated," from Deep Purple's Burn."The song "Kill the King" appeared on this album before it was recorded for a studio album. A studio version appears on the follow-up release, 1978's Long Live Roll; the single "Kill the King/Man on the Silver Mountain/Mistreated" was released in the UK in September 1977. This was Rainbow's debut in the UK Singles Chart, peaking at No. 44. After the commercial success of "Since You Been Gone", "All Night Long" and "I Surrender", "Kill the King" was re-released in 1981 this time climbing to No. 41. Songwriter and lead singer Ronnie James Dio claimed that the violent imagery in the song is about a chess game. A more representative example of a Rainbow concert of the time was the 1991 release Live in Germany 1976, which featured unedited concert performances and includes both tour staple "Stargazer" and the usual encore "Do You Close Your Eyes".
The deluxe edition was released on November 2012 in Europe. The second disc was planned to contain tracks from the concert hall at the "Orix Theater" in Osaka, Japan. Instead the second disc contains tracks from the final Rainbow gig in Tokyo, Japan at the "Nippon Budokan Hall" on December 16, 1976.
