Thanks Miles.

Continuing with a music theme:

What rock group recorded a song written by Charles Manson?  The 1968 song was a "B" side originally called "Cease to Exist" later renamed "Never Learn Not to Love".

This is the kind of thing that most fans of this group would like to forget.

In the late 60s Beach Boy drummer Dennis Wilson got involved with the Manson gang.

The song is on the Beach Boys "20/20" album.

Apparently Manson was not properly credited for the song and that caused the Beach Boys to be targeted by the Manson gang. Fortunately the Beach Boys and their entourage survived the threat.

Yep, of course you are correct.  It's quite a creepy song  and not a typical Beach Boy tune:  "Pretty girl, pretty, pretty girl/Cease to exist/Just come and say you love me/Give up your world/C'mon you can be..."   

Princess, would you like to do the next question?.  If not, we can leave the thread open

This legendary movie star was a popular singer as well as being a top box office actress.

Her husband who managed her did not do a good job. Upon his death she found out that not only had she been signed for a TV series she knew nothing about, but also her savings were stolen.

Fortunately she was later to get much of it back in court.

Can you identify this movie star and her no good husband?

Sorry for the delay.    This sister of a popular singer of the 1940's   played Esther Williams' sister in a musical.  Name her.

Barbara Whiting?  Co-starred in Dangerous When Wet.

I believe it was the 12th precinct.  

Yep, that's correct.   (Incidentally, the real  NYPD does not have a 12th precinct.)

Your turn, Miles.

Here is a similar question.  In Car 54, Where Are You?, what was the number of the precinct for  Officers Toody and Muldoon?

Officers Toody and Muldoon worked at the 53rd precinct.

 Peebs,can you give us a little hint?

Sure, the radio show couple was played by Jim and Marian Jordan.  Their show was on from 1939-59.
