RE: Jan and Arnie

Yes, I believe it WAS a _different_ Arnie Ginsburg. If 
you go to this URL 
http://www.buffnet.net/~ambrosia/liner/1958sr.htm , you 
will see that the Arnie Ginsburg who sang with Jan 
joined the Navy in 1959. I recall Woo-Woo in 1959 as 
being on the _old_ new-WMEX (1510) every night Monday 
thru Friday from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM--right before Jerry 

If anyone here knows Woo-Woo and thinks they could 
recognize whether he's the Arnie in a 40-odd-year-old 
photo, I have a downloaded jpg of Jan and Arnie. The 
photo was taken in 1957 or 58. Unfortunately, I forgot 
to capture the URL, but if you want me to e-mail the 
photo to you, let me know.
