Christina Challey, a Glendale resident whose mother died of asthma in 1988, said the first fund-raiser for the Dorothy Fund also served to raise awareness about a disorder that can be deadly if not monitored carefully. "Our main goal, of course, is to find a cure for asthma," said Challey, a country-pop singer.

In 1964, when "Bonanza" and Andy Griffith ruled the airwaves, an upstart show called "Shindig!" had the audacity to broadcast rock 'n' roll during prime time. It was loud. It was frenetic.
