July 4th, Jancee Dunn, High School Reunions
Thank you for completing our quick easy listener survey here: On today's 4th of July show, Julie Dolan and Liz Dolan talk about the charm of 4th of July hometown parades, A Gentleman In Moscow and the new Satellite Sisters products you can find here at Cafe Press.  Then we turn it over to Lian Dolan, Sheila Dolan and Monica Dolan who have a super fun interview with writer Jancee Dunn about her novel Don't You Forget About Me. Much hilarity ensues in this discussion of the 80's, life in high school and the pain of high school reunions. This was the kick-off for our Best Beach Bag Books series in 2008.  To subscribe to Satellite Sisters on Apple Podcasts, click here.  To subscribe to Satellite Sisters on Stitcher, click here.

At thirty-eight, Lillian Curtis is content with her life. She enjoys her routine as a producer for a talk show in New York City starring showbiz veteran Vi (“short for vibrant”) Barbour, a spirited senior. Lillian’s relationship with her husband is pleasant if no longer exciting. Most nights she is more than happy to come home to her apartment and crawl into her pajamas. Then she’s hit with a piece of shocking news: Her husband wants a divorce. Blindsided, Lillian takes a leave of absence and moves back to her parents’ home in suburban New Jersey. Nestled in her childhood bedroom, where Duran Duran and Squeeze posters still cover the walls, she finds high school memories a healing salve to her troubles. She hurtles backward into her teen years, driving too fast, digging up mix tapes, and tentatively reconciling with Dawn, a childhood friend she once betrayed. Punctuating her stroll down memory lane is an invitation to the Bethel Memorial High School class of 1988 twenty-year reunion. It just might be Lillian’s chance to reconnect with her long-lost boyfriend, Christian Somers, who is expected to attend. Will it be just like heaven? Lillian discovers, as we all must, the pitfalls of glorifying the glory days, the mortification of failing as a thirtysomething adult, and the impossibility of fully recapturing the past. Don’t You Forget About Me is for anyone who looks back and wonders: What if? See for privacy information. See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at

Girls Like Us: Carole King, Carly Simon, Joni M...
Women we love, the songs they wrote and the men they slept with. On this episode of Satellite Sisters podcast from July 2, 2008, Liz, Sheila and Monica interview Sheila Weller about her New York Times Times Bestseller "Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and the Journey of a Generation." On April 6, 1971, Carly Simon was about to take the stage at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. In the audience, James Taylor with his girlfriend Joni Mitchell. And back in NYC in the famed Brill Building, Carole King was already so famous as a songwriter that she was the person the Beatles asked to meet on their first trip to America. Meanwhile, in Fairfield CT, Monica, Sheila and Liz were in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades learning to love these voices of a generation. And love the men they loved. We are talking to you, James Taylor.  Please fill out our 2017 Listener Survey: Here's  from amazon about Girls Like Us:  "A groundbreaking and irresistible biography of three of America’s most important musical artists—Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon—charts their lives as women at a magical moment in time. Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon remain among the most enduring and important women in popular music. Each woman is distinct. Carole King is the product of outer-borough, middle-class New York City; Joni Mitchell is a granddaughter of Canadian farmers; and Carly Simon is a child of the Manhattan intellectual upper crust. They collectively represent, in their lives and their songs, a great swath of American girls who came of age in the late 1960s. Their stories trace the arc of the now mythic sixties generation—female version—but in a bracingly specific and deeply recalled way, far from cliché. The history of the women of that generation has never been written—until now, through their resonant lives and emblematic songs. Girls Like Us is an epic treatment of midcentury women who dared to break tradition and become what none had been before them—confessors in song, rock superstars, and adventurers of heart and soul."
