I attended a performance of the Los Angeles Pops Orchestra June 23 at the Biltmore Bowl in the Biltmore Hotel. It was a wonderful evening of musical entertainment. The orchestra, conducted by Carlo Spiga, played several distinctive selections, and delightful singer/TV star Ann Jillian performed during the second half of the program. I was lucky enough to be made aware of this orchestra through a friend; The Times seems to seldom mention it. It seems to me that Los Angeles has the population and potential to achieve the equivalency of the Boston Pops right here.

They're just making sure--all of them--before they bask in August sun, without guilt, that everyone knows about some biggies in the fall.

Almost every afternoon for the past 28 years, Shelly Cohen has commuted from his Calabasas home to NBC Studios in Burbank.

A.V. Falcone, an attorney and philanthropist involved with Catholic Charities and cultural organizations, has died. He was 89. Falcone, who had been married for 30 years to state Court of Appeal Justice Mildred L. Lillie, died Sunday in Los Angeles. When Falcone, a widower, married Justice Lillie, a widow, in 1966, Los Angeles County Clerk William G. Sharp personally issued their marriage certificate. The marriage was performed by Cardinal James Francis McIntyre in the cardinal's chapel.

Fourth of July fireworks at Santa Monica Beach used to be a logistical nightmare. Then the city exchanged twilight's last gleaming for dawn's early light. And a new tradition was born. The second annual fireworks extravaganza at dawn will be held Monday at 5 a.m. on Santa Monica Pier. Last year, city officials decided that they had to prevent a repeat of July 4, 1986, when dozens of people were arrested and one youth was killed in a gang shooting.
