Show Notes for Friday April 10, 2020

Today we talk with author Jenny Boyd about her new memoir JENNIFER JUNIPER: A Journey Beyond the Muse
(yes, she was Donovan's inspiration for the song)

When fashion and pop culture intersected during the Swinging '60's in London, she was swept up into both worlds. A promising young model for cutting edge designers, she worked in Carnaby Street by day and danced at the city's most popular clubs at night where the music of the best of the British Invasion was showcased. She was Beatle George Harrison's (and later Eric Clapton's) sister-in-law, she married Mick Fleetwood, founder member of Fleetwood Mac, twice, and she was entrenched in the rock 'n roll world of fame, money, drugs and betrayal. She accompanied The Beatles to Rishikesh in Northern India in 1968 to study meditation at the ashram of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and worked in the Beatles' Apple boutique in London.

A pair of career criminals who claimed to “have the virus” stole two cases of Corona beer from a CVS in Florida and then fled in a stolen van, say police who arrested the duo following a high-speed chase. According to criminal complaints, 42-year-old Zavier Permenter and 32-year-old Steven Cyriacks entered the Coconut Creek business Tuesday afternoon and told workers they had the coronavirus. The men then allegedly “proceeded to grab two cases of Corona beer, as well as several detergent containers.” The accused thieves apparently claimed to be infected with COVID-19 in an attempt to deter any employee resistance to the heist. The duo exited the CVS and entered a Chevrolet Express van that was reported stolen a day earlier in Ft. Lauderdale. Within minutes after receiving a 9-1-1 call about the theft, cops located the van as it traveled at “a high rate of speed” on State Road 869. Permenter and Cyriacks were both booked into the County jail on a variety of felony and misdemeanor counts. (

A church in Arkansas plans to continue holding services despite federal and state guidelines against holding gatherings of more than ten people amid the coronavirus pandemic. Awaken Church in Jonesboro claimed in a Wednesday evening Facebook post that Jesus was the "first death of Covid-19," the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The post included an image of a cross wrapped in a white sash against a sunset background, with the words "Jesus died with COVID-19 so that you didn't have to bear it." In a separate post earlier on Wednesday, the church explained that it would continue to hold services despite the rapidly spreading pandemic. The local NEA Report news site first reported Awaken Church's decision to keep its doors open to worshippers. As of Thursday afternoon, Arkansas had 624 confirmed cases of the coronavirus.

Swaller is a convicted felon whose rap sheet includes assault, theft, burglary, and receiving stolen property convictions. According to cops, after Swaller entered the Dollar Tree around 2:30 PM, he “walked around the store” and “continued to cough on the doors and into the air,” prompting customers to lodge complaints with store employees. “John writes COVID 19 in the condensation on the cooler door,” the probable cause statement notes. “John was asked to stop and he continued. John continued to cough as he exited the front door.” Charged with making a terroristic threat, Swaller was booked into the Crawford County jail. (
