The El-Bo Connection




When we were putting together our Elvis & Bowie Birthday Special, we spoke with Lisa Jane Persky, a regular contributor to Life Elsewhere and a true Renaissance woman, for her input. Lisa, known for her wit, suggested we title the show, The El-Bo Connection. Lisa Jane will join us on Monday March 3, for a live post-Oscar report. Ms. Persky will be attending the grand ceremony in Hollywood and promises to “get up close, peer down cleavages, smell breath, watch who goes to the bathroom with who and generally dish the dirt on the movie world’s biggest night!”
