April 8, 1982

Matthew Cartsonis ‘84, Bebe Smith ’84 and “Uncle Normie” Plankey performed at the recently refurbished Noyes West End coffee house. “Instrumentals were great,” wrote Karen Masiello ’84 in The Miscellany News, “but the most stunning aspect of the show was Smith’s vocal performance. Her voice has a sweetness that could quiet the multitudes.” Masiello found the “pins from their radio show” that Cartsonic and “Uncle Normie”—the persona of local resident Norman Plankey, co-host with Cartsonis on WVKR—“ridiculous, but lots of fun.” Also performing that night were Mike Dilanni ‘83 and Matt Witten ‘83, playing “music of some soft-rock bands and original pieces.”
