Don Grady, who sang and danced as a Mouseketeer on "The Mickey Mouse Club," played son Robbie on the long-running family sitcom "My Three Sons" and later became a composer and songwriter, died Wednesday. He was 68. Grady died at his home in Thousand Oaks after a four-year battle with cancer, said his wife, Ginny. As a child in the Bay Area town of Lafayette, Grady developed a fondness for music and dancing. He told the Contra Costa Times in 2005 that he took clarinet and accordion lessons and later taught himself bass, guitar and the trumpet.

While the city's television producers gleefully tally up the Emmy nominations earned for flagship shows such as "Breaking Bad"  and "Game of Thrones,"  the Los Angeles Philharmonic also has something to crow about. An L.A. Phil program was nominated Thursday in the outstanding special class category, for the PBS broadcast of Herbie Hancock and Gustavo Dudamel joining in a concert to celebrate George Gershwin, which opened the 2011 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Airing under the banner of PBS' "Great Performances" series, the show was co-produced for broadcast by New York City's WNET and is going up against some stiff competition.
