Michael Feinstein's work inside the Great American Songbook may seem largely derived from Broadway of the past century, but he is quick to say that the unexplored treasures from Hollywood studios are equally significant. “There are a few movie musicals that we feel we know every note from,”  Feinstein said during an interview this spring at his Los Feliz home. “But beyond that there is great composition that has been bypassed coming out of most of the studios in the 1930s-1950s which is now largely unheard.

Pete Townshend, the Who guitarist famous for his windmill strums and battles with hearing loss, was apparently worried about the latter issue during the kickoff night of his band's latest tour. At the end of his set in Sunrise, Fla., Townshend reportedly walked offstage during an encore performance of "You Better You Bet," gesturing to sound engineers that the on-stage monitors were too loud. Townshend, 67, failed to return, even when the band played live staple "Baba O'Reilly" which closed the night.

Selena Gomez slipped an F-bomb into her set during KIIS-FM's annual Jingle Ball concert in Los Angeles due to some frustration over sound problems.  Audio and microphone malfunctions rattled the former Disney star and eventually led to her walking off stage Friday night at Staples Center. "Sorry, the sound isn't working!" Gomez told the crowd, according to Us Weekly and an amateur video shot at the concert. "Are you guys having a good night?

Regarding Robert Hilburn's "review" of Radiohead's recent Wiltern show ("Radio-head Offers Challenging Messages," July 29), did Hilburn actually attend the concert? In his seven-paragraph "review," there is not one sentence that deals directly with the concert itself. He writes very positively about the band, its latest album, its lead singer and the themes of its songs. While I agree with much of what Hilburn has to say about the band, why doesn't he talk about the show, the event he is supposedly writing about?

The Hollywood Palladium concert scheduled for Friday featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Trouble Funk has been canceled. A spokesman for the promoter, Avalon Attractions, said Wednesday that the cancellation was due to scheduling conflicts and had nothing to do with the violence at rap group Run-D.M.C.'s recent Long Beach Arena concert. Trouble Funk, a leading group in Washington's "go go" black music scene, is still scheduled to play Bogart's nightclub in Long Beach on Monday.

Walking towards the entrance to the Universal Amphitheatre to see the July 3 Tiffany concert, I noticed a cigarette-pack-style warning posted outside the front gates. It read, "Warning, the high sound levels inside the amphitheatre may damage your hearing." Soon it was evident that whoever posted the warning wasn't kidding. And the quality? . . . like a jukebox playing scratched-up old 45s. MATTHEW OKADA Pasadena
