Originally from Mt. Zion, I’ve been in radio 14 years. I’m married to Tom, and have three children. My favorite foods include Mexican, and peanut butter and pickle sandwiches (try it, you’ll like it)! Favorite TV shows include Friends, The Biggest Loser, Friday Night Lights, and The Soup on E. Fever Pitch, and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days are my favorite movies, and my favorite country stars are Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, and Chris Cagle. GO ILLINI!

FILE- This is a 1967 handout image from Parlophone of The British group, The Beatles,. From left, are: Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Paul McCartney; and George Harrison. The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.

A look back at some of Hollywood's most memorable headlines.
