Jack Larson

Jack Larson, the playwright and librettist who, as he often predicted with good-natured resignation, will be remembered best as the actor who played the cub reporter Jimmy Olsen on the television series “Adventures of Superman,” died on Sunday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Jack Edward Larson was born on Feb. 8, 1928, in Los Angeles and grew up in nearby Montebello. His father, George Larson, was a milk-truck driver and iceman, and his mother, the former Anita Kalikov, was a clerk at Western Union.

Nicolette was born in Helena, Montana in 1952. Her father was with the Treasury Department and moved the family's six children to a different U. S. city every two years, exposing Nicolette to diverse styles of music that combined into the unique vocal style that eventually made her into a recording star. Later in life after college, Nicolette got her first break when she was hired as a singer with Hoyt Axton's band and later with Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen. She was soon on her way to becoming one of the top recording and touring vocalists in the business, recording with key musical figures like Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Michael McDonald, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Neil Young, Christopher Cross, The Dirt Band, the Beach Boys and the Doobie Brothers.
