A couple of months ago, I posted here in an effort to find updates about Jay Black, the singer who is responsible for almost all of the hit songs recorded as Jay and the Americans. If I had posted a request for information about Ella Fitzgerald, I wouldn't expect to be swamped with posts about Whitney Houston. I thought others would share with me whatever was known to them about Jay. Wow, there is a lot of ill will on that thread! So I am attempting to open a discussion for those of us who care about Jay Black. If you are filled with hate toward him, please don't post because my blood pressure pills are expensive. If you want to talk about Jay #1 and/or Jay #3, I would suggest you do as I have and open a new discussion. Nothing is accomplished when we get into petty discussions about who is the best. I like The Voice, and have no interest in discussing any other subject here. I was thrilled to find some new material from a Florida appearance last weekend, and hope the rest of you Jayettes enjoyed it. Let me know when you have anything else, and I will try to return the courtesy. I had posted the above-mentioned post in December, then completely forgot about it, so now I have it set to alert me. Looking forward to your comments. Jay, if you are getting these posts, don't forget you are much loved and admired! My only New Year's resolution is to meet you in person, so get ready. I am a woman with a mission, and not one to give up.

Boy,do I love you!I had wondered how to start another forum but had no idea how to do it.I'm really glad you did this.Do you visit the videos and post on them also?Will the other Jayettes get the message about this forum? I don't know if they post on the bankruptcy forum,so I'll want to let them know about this.I seem to remember your name.Did you post on the bankruptcy forum before this.You evidently have at least read it to know about all the mongers talking hatefulness about Jay.I don't understand how so many people can be so down on a man who was shafted royally,accepts his responsibility for his shortcomings and keeps on going-doing what he loves and giving so much pleasure to his fans.I think his face is as lovely as his voice.Looking at that beautiful smile,I really don't think he has a mean bone in his body.And if he's ever done anything even remotely mean it had to be because he was always being attacked.An ANIMAL will bite if he's cornered.

I've only been following his career since last August.I started playing country music about the time he joined the Americans. Boy, did I miss out on some good music all those years.Maybe if I'd followed from the start I'd have been able to see him in concert at least once. Thank you again for starting this forum for Jay.

I wasn't implying that Jay is an animal. I'm sure you know what I meant. Did you join the Jay Black fan club on FaceBook? Not much to it.Very few members.Nobody really knows anything. I don't think anyone keeps up his official website, either. When you go the the guest page and fill in the info you always get an email back saying that your remarks will be passed along to Jay.

Do you know how to start a fan club?

I think we have been chatting on Youtube already, along with Dawn and hummingibrd, who is the other Grace. I'm agrace39. I have no idea how to start a fan club, but will research it if you promise to help with whatever it needs. Didn't you post that you have survived cancer and a stroke and your mother is advanced ALZ? Well, I divorced my mother, didn't have a stroke, but do have cancer, ovarian. We might have a lot more in common than lust for Jay, hehe. Anyway, my short term memory is shot to hell from chemo, and I can't depend on myself to follow through. My intentions, however, are the purest.

Here I am girls...the other Jayette ( Dawn ). Hummingbird will get on board too (the other Grace ). I really don't know why there are so many haters after Jay ( David ). I know he's had a hard life and I'm sure he's pissed off many people along the way, but haven't we all?! I've heard interviews with some his his freinds and family that say he's " so nice that they try not to ever hurt his feelings in any way "...and I know of people that he's helped financially and emotionally over the years.And he gives of his time and support to many charitable organizations. I will never understand why some people take such pleasure and delight in picking on him and harping on the same old shit. There are certain ass hole trollers on YouTube that spend their time pulling up Jay's videos and then happily writing sniping shit.....WHY?! There are a couple of them that are after ME..I'm sure you've read some of their crap....whatever, they don't scare me. I'm an old sarcastic bee-otch from way back and I love a good fight. Jay was always better than he was given credit for...and he KNEW it...and yes, pretty cocky and probably arrogant..that rubbed some people the wrong way...but it IS what it IS..he was the best voice around and still is at 73 years old. I took on this " Jay Crusade " many years ago...I've followed his career for almost 50 years, and I, along with many others, will be profoundly heartbroken when he no longer can share his voice with us...As far as Jay ever seeing these posts and comments..the good and the bad...he probably doesn't...he probably HEARS about some of it from his friends and family, but I doubt that he seeks it out. I've also seen several interviews where he has commented that " he doesn't even know how to download anything "..I get the impression that he's not terribly computer literate. I know a couple people that do know him personally and I'm hoping that they have told him about us, the Jayettes, and about all the good stuff that people say and how much he is loved. There is just something special about Jay...I saw it back in 1963...and I'm not starstruck by any means...I've been in the music industry most of my life and have met many " star types ", so the star thing isn't a big deal to me. Jay is one of a kind and a gift to us all...that sweet crooked smile and his soft hearted eyes have stuck with me all these years..this old gal's life has been made better because of his existance...~Dawn

OK..since this is a new start and only a few posts on here,WHO "judges" the posts. Do other people read the posts on a forum and judge them.I stayed so pissed reading the backruptcy forum I couldn't even see straight, because every single thing written against Jay was judged received good icons and all written supporting him was bad icons. And it seems to have started on here,so it MUST be people reading and judging.After I post I'm going to see if I can "judge" my own post.I know this is petty but it bugs me.

Hey, Dawn, so glad to see you here, where the posts aren't as mean, I hope. You and salliannable and hummingbird gave me the nerve to start this. I was afraid it would just sit here and no one would visit. So thanks, my fellow Jayette. By the way, my first name is Aimee, middle name Grace, birth year 1939. I have to use familiar things for user names because chemo fog has deprived me of short term memory and I can't learn many new things. So you now know me by most of my aliases, hehe.

Are you serious? I don't know how to judge, do you? Must we? I didn't notice icons, boy, am I dense or what? I will go back and see if I can figure out what you're talking about. I never paid any attention to that on the bankruptcy forum, just read and moved on.

I ran a fan club for Jay Black for many years. I am no longer doing "the whole nine yards" (e.g., printed newsletters, dues, etc.), but I still have an e-mail broadcast list of nearly 500 people to whom I send periodic e-mail updates. Dawn, I believe you contacted me recently. I am happy to add any fans to my e-mail list; however, I am hesitant to post my e-mail address here, because I don't need negative e-mails from the haters out there (although I think they prefer the anonymity of these boards). Dawn, if you have e-mail addresses for Aimee or Sally, please feel free to send them to me or give them my e-mail address privately.

Do some research and find out. There's 584 Jay Blacks in NY, 1326 in Florida,and many more in other states. Which one you want? Google Jay Black and when the search results page comes up, click IMAGES on the left.There's lots of pictures.Our Jay, Jay Black,a comedian,a photographer Jay Black and a black Jay Black you'd probably be very interested in.

I wasn't ignoring your questions. I wrote a whole great long bunch and I don't know what the devil I did,but when I clicked post comment,my great oratory just evidently went out into cyberspace or something. I'll repost my answer if you still don't know about those stupid icons.And we've got somebody trying to rag us already. Post #10-WHAT A HOOT.Sounds like somebody who's making fun of us and doesn't care for Jay.But they sure follow his name around, don't they.I think he's probably a nebbish alter cocker.

What the heck is a nebbish alter cocker? Boy, it sure can make me feel old to try to keep up with the new slang and cybertalk. Hey, I know that feeling, when you got all the words in the right place, it's a bit longish but serves a purpose, and then whoosh it disappears. I use a Mac, and it's bad about suddenly deciding to go somewhere else to put down what I typed. I did click on the judge thing, then went back and judged some of the posts. I don't see that it matters to us, but I guess people might think it's some kind of worthwhile indicator.

;) Don't feel old. It's not new slang or cyber talk. It's Yiddish. I looked up a site that had Yiddish words and phrases.I like to hear it.A nebbish is an inadequate person,a loser. An alter cocker is an old and complaining person, an old fart. And that's the NICEST things I can think of to call all these FERSHTINKINERS who are always bashing Jay.I wish I could speak Yiddish. I love the way it sounds. After I looked these up I found out that this was the phraseology The Nanny used. And not even knowing what the words meant,it was funny.You could guess the meaninings from their use in a sentence.

Sally,

I found a site like that once - loved it. There's not many Jewish people in this area, but I have always enjoyed being around the few I know, but I've never heard them use Yiddish. The Nanny (only started watching last year on reruns) enlightened me to it - love to hear her and her mother!

Also, on one radio interview, Jay said he loved "egg creme sodas". He said he had some dental issues and was on a liquid diet for awhile - soups and egg creme sodas, which he mentioned a certain local place where he used to always get his. I looked the sodas up and found many recipes. I eventually made one - it was good!! The neat thing about it is how you mix it. It reminded me of "YooHoo's, which I craved when I was a teen. I suppose our gang had telepathy when we cruised - we played JATA's music and drank "Yoohoo's. Kinda weird!!

Glad you requested someone to do this forum. I knew I'd be boo-ed by the non-Jaysters, so I did nothing about it. Now maybe all the Jayettes and Jasters will come out of the woodwork and we can be with "like-kind".

And, y'all, about the judging ----- the few that are that childish are most likely using multiple computers to duplicate the judging. Most folks I know have as many computers as they do TVs,(one in each room) and those judges that work can do it from the work place. I don't believe there are 20-something people doing the judging. If so, they are too chicken to speak out. The judging didn't start until after I started the mess with FL. I tried it a few times, and I'm not sure how they talley up. Sometimes the icons I applied did not register. So, we shouldn't put much stock into it. Just ignore that junk!

I just typed a almost a whole page and lost it-same as with Aimee last night. Where does you post go if you type in the box at the bottom and don't use the Reply option on each post. I'm gonna practice a few times so if you see really crazy crap I haven't completely lost it yet--just trying to find out what the devil I did wrong.
