Satellite Would Beam Zip's Radio Talk Show

Article excerpt

NOTES ON MY CUFF: Channel 4's Zip Rzeppa wants to syndicate a three-hour talk, call-in radio program that would be produced locally. The package would be distributed via a satellite network. . . .

Construction icon Russ Emmenegger has sold his Sunset Hills historic manse that once belonged to the Lemp brewing clan and has opted for a pad at The Legends. . . .

Former state Rep. Jean Mathews must have been glad to get $500 from Jerry Clinton's Grey Eagle distributorship for her run for St. Louis County Executive.

The alfresco party honored Nancy Kranzberg and banker/realtor Alvin Siteman for their generosity and dedication to the park. Emcee Richard Jensen, noting Siteman's passion for art, recalled the time Siteman flew Laumeier's trustees in his own plane over a desert to see a sculpture.

PRESSING ON: "I came from a segment of society that had never been encouraged to dream, the flame of our hope had long been extinguished," reminisced East St. Louis Senior High football coach Bob Shannon Friday night at the St. Louis American's "Salute to Excellence" dinner at America's Center. …
