You’re Telling Me

I want to assure each and every one of you who writes a letter to me at 16 Magazine that your letter is delivered to me personally. I want to assure you too that I read every single letter I receive, that I’m grateful to you for writing to me and that I appreciate every suggestion and criticism you address to me. There isn’t enough space in 16 Magazine for me to publish every letter I receive and there isn’t enough time for me to answer every letter personally—but please keep writing and look for your letter and my answer each month in You’re Telling Me!

Address all of your letters as follows: Miss Gloria Stavers, c/o 16 Magazine, Business Office, 745 Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10022.

Davy Jones
Info Davy at Zilch.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I lost the address to DAVY’s store Zilch in New York City. Could you please tell me where it is and how I can get one of his mail order catalogs?

Stephanie Green
Fargo, No. Dakota

Dear Stephanie,

Zilch is located at 217 Thompson Street in New York City. If you send 25ยข, a catalog will be forthcoming—but be patient, because it takes a while. If you are ever in New York, don’t miss dropping by the store. It’s really super. By the way, when you send your order be sure to print your full name and address clearly with your order.

Dear Miss Stavers,

If you don’t have better stars to write about, why bother having a magazine? You have come up with the goofiest group of all—those idiotic COWSILLS or Cowgirls, or whatever their name is. Do me a favor and keep them out of 16!

Mary Ann Cannon
Ontario, Canada

Dear Mary Ann,

I personally discussed your letter with the COWSILLS and I can’t tell you how upset they were. Your opinion may be one of a small minority, but JOHN, BARRY, SUSIE and the rest of the family care about your happiness. Could you tell 16 and the COWSILLS what it is you don’t like—and maybe they can help. Meanwhile, the COWSILLS are tremendously popular with the rest of our readers, so you can bet your blue jeans they will be featured in 16 for a long time to come!

Dear Miss Stavers,

I just got my set of new All-Star Wallet Photos, and they are the biggest, prettiest, most kissable pix I have ever seen! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Fran Simms
San Diego, Calif.

Dear Fran,

Thank you for the thanx! Any other romantically inclined 16-ers should quickly turn to Page 15.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I am super confused. How do you pronounce SAJID’s first name and how old is he—really??

Ann Paley
Mexico City, Mex.

Dear Ann,

SAJID’s name is pronounced Sah-jid and he was born on December 28, 1951. The mistake came about in 16 because SAJID does not understand American numerals, and he wrote 1952 instead of 1951. This past December he celebrated his 16th birthday.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I saw a comedian named JODY GRABER on The Merv Griffin Show and he really is show-stoppin’ funny! Where can I get in touch with him?

Mary Lu Jourdan
Goldsboro, N.C.

Dear Mary Lu,

You can write to groovy JODY GRABER c/o Peter Paul, G.A.C., 600 Madison Avenue, N.Y.C. 10022.

Dear Miss Stavers,

That girl named DONNA who wrote a put-down letter in the March issue against 16 and the MONKEES ought to have her head examined. There’s no better magazine than 16, and there is no better group than the MONKEES! Could she be a spy for SMERSH?

Juliet Margolin
Santa Monica, Calif.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I flipped over JOHN FRED and his PLAYBOY BAND, who recorded Lucy In Disguise (Judy In Disguise) for Paula Records. Where can I write to JOHN and the gang?

Penny Gainey
New York City

Dear Penny,

You can write to JOHN FRED and his PLAYBOY BAND c/o P.O, Box 14773, Baton Rouge, La. They will be dee-lighted to hear from you!

Dear Miss Stavers,

Guess what? My wallet is now bulging with beautiful, autographed candids of the MONKEES! If it weren’t for 16, I wouldn’t have them. You are too much!

Gloria Greene
Jefferson City, Mo.

Dear Gloria,

Glad you are so happy—and, for the rest of you MONKEE-luvvers, joy is only a few pages away—see Page 55!

Dear Miss Stavers,

There’s a horrible rumor abroad that Star Trek may be taken off the air! Is there anything we can do to save this wonderful show? We really want it to be back for the ’68–69 season!

Mindy and Mary
New Orleans, La.

Dear Mindy and Mary,

Write to the Program Director, NBC-TV, Rockefeller Center, New York City and to the Program Director, NBC-TV, Hollywood, Calif. Tell them that you want Star Trek on next fall. Sock it to ’em, baby!

Dear Miss Stavers,

How can I join PAUL REVERE, MARK LINDSAY and the RAIDERS’ Fan Club?

Charlotte Angel
Midwest City, Okla.

Dear Charlotte,

Send $2 to: PAUL, MARK and the RAIDERS’ FAN CLUB, Box 76, Hollywood, Calif. 90028—and you will get a membership card, a Raiders certificate, signed pix of the boys, bios, etc. It’s really a gas—so don’t miss out. Be sure to print: “I Am A 16 Reader” on your envolope when you write to the Raiders Fan Club.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I love the SUPREMES and I seldom see them in 16. Could you tell me what’s new with my fave group?

Beatrice Frances
Rego Park, N.Y.

Dear Beatrice,

The SUPREMES have just returned from an engagement at The Talk-of-the Town in London—where they were a smash success!! Opening-nighters included PAUL MCCARTNEY, JANE ASHER, PETER ASHER, BETSY DOSTER, MICHAEL CAINE and LAURENCE HARVEY—to name a few.

Dear Miss Stavers,

When the RAIDERS’ tour played here in February, there was a super-fab group on the show called the EXILES. They introduced their new record, Come Out, Come Out, Whoever You Are. Can you please tell me something about these six good-looking, groovy guys?

Jo Anne Stander
Charleston, W. Va.

Dear Jo Anne,

The EXILES are all from Kentucky, and in addition to personal appearances they attend Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond. They are all about 20 years old, and you can write to them at Date Records, 51 W. 52nd Street, New York City. They promise to answer every letter!

Dear Miss Stavers,

Could you please give me the correct fan club address for DUSTY SPRINGFIELD?

Sara Masour
Miami, Fla.

Dear Sara,

It is—The Dusty Springfield American Fan Club, Box 2703, Culver City, Calif. 90230.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I snapped this adorable picture of DAVE CLARK the last time he was here on tour. He and the FIVE were just wonderful! Would you please print it?

Martha Jack
Columbus, Ga.

Dear Miss Stavers,

There’s a whole gang of us out here who just love JONATHAN FRID of Dark Shadows. He is one of the grooviest vampires around! Could you print a picture of him as Barnabas? Where can I write to JONATHAN?

Nancy Rosarino
Bronx, N.Y.

Dear Nancy,

You can write to JONATHAN FRID c/o Dark Shadows, ABC-TV, Sixth Avenue, New York City.

Dear Miss Stavers,

In your February issue you did not publish the birthdate of BILL of the COWSILLS. Could you please tell me what it is?

Jean Mazur
Suffolk, Va.

Dear Jean,

Bill was born on January 9, 1948. Sorry we goofed.
