A few weekends ago my sister and I saw the Broadway musical The Drowsy Chaperone. We had front row tickets and it was a great show! The cast were all so talented. Sutton Foster, Beth Leavel and Bob Martin were my favorites! I really wanted their autographs so I wrote the cast c/o the Marquis Theatre asking for two signed Playbills- one for myself and one for my sister. To my suprise today I received two Playbills in the mail today with the cast members autographs all over the cover of the Playbill! I'm really happy with this success. I wasn't expecting a response from them all so soon!

My last and favorite success of the day comes from singer/songwriter Anna Nalick. I wrote to her not to long ago and I got this autographed black and white 8x10 that was inscribed to me. She signed and inscribed the index card that I had enclosed as well. I recently discovered her music this past year and love it! Her debut album Wreck of the Day is awesome, so if you've never heard it you should definitely check it out! The best part of this success is that as I was taking it out of the envelope I noticed that there were black marks on the cardboard behind the photo. When I pulled it out I saw that Anna had personally handwritten a note back to me in response to a question I had asked her in my letter about when she plans on recording a new album!!! So I'm assuming Anna must personally read her fan mail, or at least some of it. She seems like a sweet down-to-earth girl who cares about her fans! I've never received a hand written letter or note back from a celebrity. They have all either been written by assistants or typed, so I was really excited when I saw this! I also included a scan of the note she wrote on the cardboard. To enlarge the letter just click on the scan of it! :) That's it for now... I need to get some more requests sent out so hopefully this streak of AWESOME successes I've been receiving lately will keep up! :)
I wrote Pat Sajak, the host of Wheel of Foutune through the show's webpage at the same time as I did Vanna. Today in a separate Wheel of Fourtune envelope than my Vanna autograph came in a received this black and white 8x10 autographed by Pat Sajak.

This past Friday I received an autographed promo photo of Jennie Garth from "What I Like About You"! She also signed the index card I enclosed. Both signatures appear to be authentic as they match the one found on her Studio Fan Mail pre-prints. I'm really excited as I LOVE her WB show with Amanda Bynes. I also enjoyed Jennie's made-for- TV Christmas Movie "Secret Santa" that aired a few years ago on UPN.

I love Howie's song "Collide". I saw him live in concert near the end of last year, and decided to send a request out to him in late spring. Today I received an autographed booklet for his CD Stop All The World Now. Definitely a nice successes and addition to my collection!
I love country music, but usually only listen to a select few well-know artists like Shania Twain, Leann Rimes, The Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. Up-and-coming country singers never seemed to appeal to me for some reason. That all changed a few years ago when I read about Julie Roberts. She started out as an employee of Mercury Records as an office receptionist, then later an assistant to the head of the record label. She worked on her music on side and eventually collaberated with a producer to record demos, one of which was played for the head of Mercury Records, who didn’t know at the time that this new country singer was his assistant! She landed a record deal, and recently released her second album. She is very reminiscent of Faith Hill, and I think she has a promising career ahead of her! I especially like her songs "Unlove Me" and "I Can't Get Over You".

Growing up I loved watching Bob Saget's shows "Full House" ( who could forget Danny Tanner?) and "America's Funniest Home Videos". I never bothered to write to him before because he sent out pre-printed autographs from Studio Fan Mail. When others began reporting getting authentic autographs from him, I figured I'd give it a shot. I sent off a letter to him and near the end of June I recieved this black and white 8x10 photo inscribed to me!
