Will Higgins Indianapolis Star Published 6:11 AM EST Jan 2, 2019 Two small-town Indiana teenagers got upset with the obscene lyrics they heard in a new rock 'n roll song on the radio, so they did something about it. They wrote a letter to the governor. The governor read the letter, and he did something about it. He sent an aide to a record store to buy the record. He sat down and listened to it — at several different speeds. Convinced the record might indeed be dirty, he alerted the Federal Communications Commission. He contacted the Indiana Broadcasters Association and requested that member radio stations remove the song from their rotation. "Record held naughty, air ban asked" read the headline on a Jan. 23, 1964 Indianapolis News story that described the governor's swift reaction to a letter of complaint from "a Frankfort resident."

French director Laurent Pelly’s charming production of Massenet’s Cinderella opera, which unfolds — literally — out of the pages of a giant storybook, has been enchanting audiences around the world since it first showed up at the Santa Fe Opera in 2006. But in no city does this long-awaited “Cendrillon” have the special resonance that it does in Chicago, where the Lyric Opera is delightfully holding forth with a tale everyone knows, to music that deserves never again to be so long forgotten. Although the Lyric has never done “Cendrillon” before, Chicago was able to experience Massenet’s opera back in 1911, only a dozen years after its Paris birth, with the fearless Scottish singing-actress Mary Garden, star of France’s Opéra-Comique, as Cinderella’s Prince Charming.

This dispatch brings her to Prague; it took the No. 39 spot on the list and is the 34th stop on Jada’s itinerary.
