Mr. Roger’s Supposed Successor Concert Cancelled Or Is It? (Yawn)…

Voice of San Diego
Mr. Rogers Saga Continues
May 29, 2009

Sunday’s show may or may not go on, but one thing’s for sure: Divine Miss M isn’t the wind beneath its wings.

Michael Kinsell, the local teen who touted himself as the successor to the beloved children’s TV star Fred Rogers, told the press yesterday that he had cancelled a much-ballyhooed fundraiser scheduled for this weekend.
