Animals - Visit - Elderly
How do you get a giraffe out of the zoo? Very carefully! Watch how these nursing home patients react when zoo animals come to visit. Deborah Nettune has the story. ---take pkg--- Sidney Stanfield wasn't expecting any guests today.. but this afternoon, an old furry friend popped in to say Hello. ---nats--- Oscar and his friends hoofed their way through the North Jackson Nursing home to spread some cheer. --NATS-- The animals brightened the day for everyone, bringing smiles to faces. Bessie Campbell couldnt resist a quick kiss. ---NATS-- ---SOT-- BESSIE CAMPBELL ..."I'VE SEEN THEM IN MY YOUNG DAYS WE USED TO GO TO ALL THE CIRCUSES IN OUR AREA." ---SOT--LOETA SMITH "THEY'RE JUST UNIQUE, UNIQUE AND THEY'RE JUST PRECIOUS TO US.. ONLY WHERE THE CAMELS AND HORSES TOURING THE NURSING HOME THERE'S ALSO THIS LITTLE BABY KANGAROO. OOOH YOU OK THERE?" He's ok, but some of the other animals werent as accomodating. ABU, a 5 week old baboon didnt want to be held by just anyone and Skipper, the monkey, wanted to be left alone. But owner Robin Kirk assures us even the animals are having fun. --sot--ROBIN KIRK "THE ANIMALS ENJOY IT. THEY GET AS MUCH ENJOYMENT OUT OF IT AS WE DO AD AS THE PATIENTS OF THE NURSING HOME DO..." ---NATS--- And people who live here cant wait till they can horse around again.

STILL Peggy Lee and the Mike Renzi Quintet perform in New York's Carnegie Hall during the JVC Jazz Festival, June 24, 1995.(AP Photo/Adam Nadel) STORYLINE: Peggy Lee, the singer-composer whose smoky, insinuating voice in such songs as "Is That All There Is?" and "Fever" made her a jazz and pop legend, died Monday. She was 81. Lee died from a heart attack at her Bel Air home, her daughter, Nicki Lee Foster, said. Lee repeatedly battled injury and ill health, including heart trouble, in order to maintain a career that brought her a Grammy, an Oscar nomination and sold-out concert halls across the world. During more than 50 years in show business, which began during a troubled childhood and endured through four broken marriages, she recorded hit songs with the Benny Goodman band, wrote songs for a Disney movie and starred on Broadway in a short-lived autobiographical show, "Peg". Her vocal flexibility and cool, breathy voice brought sultry distinction to big band showstoppers, pop ballads and soulful laments. She was considered in the same league as Billie Holiday, Mildred Bailey, Ella Fitzgerald and Bessie Smith. Her hits touched generations of listeners. Lee's more notable recordings included "Why Don't You Do Right?", "I'm a Woman", "Lover", "Pass Me By", "Where or When", "The Way You Look Tonight", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin"' and "Big Spender". The hit "Is That All There Is?" won her a Grammy for best contemporary female vocal performance in 1969. In 1956, she was cast as a boozy blues singer in "Pete Kelly's Blues" and she was nominated for a supporting actress Oscar. She also appeared opposite Danny Thomas in an update of "The Jazz Singer", but her film career was short-lived. Peggy Lee recorded more than 600 songs and wrote many others, including themes for such movies as "Johnny Guitar" and "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter". Her return to recording in 1988 after a hiatus of more than a decade netted her a Grammy nomination for "Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues" in 1989 and another for "The Peggy Lee Songbook: There'll Be Another Spring" in 1991.

GOSPEL SINGER MAHALIA JACKSON INTERVIEW
Mahalia Jackson, (born October 26, 1911, New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.—died January 27, 1972, Evergreen Park, near Chicago, Illinois), American gospel music singer, known as the “Queen of Gospel Song.” Jackson was brought up in a strict religious atmosphere. Her father’s family included several entertainers, but she was forced to confine her own musical activities to singing in the church choir and listening—surreptitiously—to recordings of Bessie Smith and Ida Cox as well as of Enrico Caruso. When she was 16, she went to Chicago and joined the Greater Salem Baptist Church choir, where her remarkable contralto voice soon led to her selection as a soloist.
