I just received an e-mail from info/ that said, "More on the status of PS2 coming up Wednesday. " Hopefully it's good news !

It has come to my attention that there is possibly an opportunity to have gavel to gavel coverage of Spector's re-trial. If you are willing to pay and at least 1000 people sign up, The Legal Edge Network will try to get it done. is a new online site created by Michael Bryant a practicing attorney, journalist, and broadcaster. Many may remember him as a former court tv reporter.

Yeah, I'd rather watch free, but I'm willing to pay for a couple months of full coverage. I have already invested 6 months of my time during the first trial and would like to see this through.

Remember too, if you can't afford a subscription for full coverage, you can still see parts of the trial at KTLA.

Here is the e-mail I received from The Legal Edge today:


I once covered the "fight of the century". It was 1986 at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas. Thomas "Hitman" Hearns vs. "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler. The fight lasted only 2 1/2 rounds before the "Hitman" went down, and while celebufight fans like Bo Derek and Sly Stallone called it the best fight ever, the boxers were plotting to set up the rematch. As the glassy eyed Hearns told me after the fight, "We did it once...let's do it again."

What the heck does this have to to with The Legal Edge? Nothing really, except that after an outpouring of Phil Spector fan e-mails I've decided to try one last time to get a read on how many folks would really subscribe to a monthly service that allowed us to cover costs to stream the Spector trial.

Here's the deal: I've opened a new e-mail address just to receive commitments from PS2 fans. If the number is sufficient (and based on my calculations and production costs that number needs to be at least 1000 viewers at $35.00 per month. The cost would go down if we get more subscribers) we would go ahead with setting up the actual payment structure to assure these commitments. The last thing we want to do is start the process and end up going under because a large number of folks flaked.

Here's the dedicated e-mail address:

So, pass this along to anyone interested. I'll e-mail the basics to all registered at TLE...and we'll see. It's up to you now.
