Annie Interviewed for 'Roy Wood' Easter Special BBC Radio 2

Dear Friends,

For all my friends in the UK, please tune in to Richard Allinson & Steve Levine for the next edition of The Record Producers on BBC Radio 2, to hear a very special 'Easter' show featuring my good friend, Roy Wood.

The show airs on Monday, April 13, at 6 p.m. (UK Time), 1 p.m. (US Eastern Time).

I was asked to participate along with Jeff Lynne and Alan Parsons. As many of you know Roy produced and wrote some songs on my first solo album 'Annie in Wonderland'. It is no secret that I believe Roy to be a musical genius and the proof will be heard in this show. It will be a colorful and fun one too!

The show can be heard worldwide on the internet. The radio 2 version on April 13th will be available at this website: www.bbc.co.uk/radio2

You can hear a 'producers cut' extended version that will air the following Saturday, April 18, at 9 p.m. (UK Time) 4 p.m. (US Eastern Time), that will be followed by 30 minutes of Roy tracks... in a producer playlist.

This will be on BBC 6 music, this is the BBC DAB (digital station) station. www.bbc.co.uk/6music

PLEASE HELP TO SAVE BABY SEALS

Forgotten Cats

Dear Friends,

I am writing at this time as I am personally in the middle of trapping and releasing three feral cats; Baby, Fern and Twig. They 'chose' me and therefore I take responsibility for them.

More than ever there are countless homeless and unwanted kitties needing attention and love.

What we humans can do to help is to get these felines to a vet or a sanctuary that will spay and neuter. There are organizations all over the country that will do this for a low cost.

Forgotten Cats, Inc. (www.forgottencats.org)  is an organization that I found closest to my area and they do a wonderful job. Their goal is to stabilize the population at manageable levels. It is an 'All Volunteer',  No-Kill organization.

If you love cats as much as I do I hope that you will reach out and support organizations like Forgotten Cats. 

We can help these helpless creatures. Most 'wild' kittens do not survive, and the few that do, end up sick and suffering.

It is of no use to take feral cats to a shelter as they would only be put down as there is such a wide overpopulation. What we can do is to stop the problem from spreading at the source.

Thank you for reading this, I know many of you are animal lovers and will help if it is possible.

Love and Light,

Dear Friends,

For those of you who witnessed Jann's show at the Sellersville Theater last September, when John Tout and I joined him on stage for several songs, will be charmed once more, as he brings his unique style of songwriting back to Sellersville on April 9th.

Click here for more information.

If you didn't get a chance to go to that show, I highly recommend going. Jann is an excellent performer, with a very strong voice atop strong powerful and unforgettable melodies.

Hope to see you there.

Please Vote for Annie's Cat 'LILY' to Help Animals

Dear Friends,

Please vote for Lily.

My love and respect for animals grows by the minute, and whenever I can, I will help them.
I took a photo of my beautiful (adopted) Siamese cat 'Lily' sitting right in front of one of my paintings. Her electric blue eyes are hypnotic and match the background perfectly, she was born to be a 'model'!

I have entered the photo in the 'Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest' for HSUS. Please consider voting for Lily and making a donation. It will not only help my pet in the contest, but will save pets' 'lives' by reducing pet overpopulation.

Please click this link. The page she is on should come right up, if not you can put her name in the 'search' box. There are quite a few 'Lily's' but there is no mistaking her portrait.

Thank you ahead of time for helping the animals.

Love and Peace,
