	From the latest TV Guide:

"'David Letterman called' [she said] 'They want me.'  Letterman isn't alone.
Just two days after ABC's ground-breaking new show 'Twin Peaks' made its
debut, [Kimmie] Robertson -- an unknown actress who landed a part on the
series -- was fielding phone calls.  Her character, [the] switchboard
operator Lucy Moran, had been warmly received by audiences and already
showed signs of developing a cult following when a 'Letterman' staffer
called.  Letterman himself had been struck by her performance and was
interested in having her on. [---] Various friends [of Robertson] from
around the country have been calling her with news that high-school kids and
office workers in Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C., had already
memorized her debut lines and were reciting them:

'I'm gonna transfer to the phone on a table by the red chair, the red chair
against the wall, the little table with the lamp on it, the lamp
that we moved from the corner, [etc.]'

"[---] Robertson's following is growing, and she seems more than willing to
nurture it by giving radio interviews as her compulsive character, Lucy."

	Anybody heard any of those interviews?

BTW, according to the same issue of the Guide the Tuesday, May 1, edition
of the Oprah Winfrey (4 pm) features "cast members of new prime-time TV
shows" -- whatever that means.
